A prototype of the Ukrainian BTR-60XM Khorunzhiy, created in a single copy, was spotted in the area of ​​​​the contact line

The Ukrainian army is experiencing a shortage of armored vehicles, attempts by the West to solve this problem by supplying armored vehicles and MRAPs have failed, the replacement turned out to be unequal. In addition, the Russian army quickly destroys the transferred equipment. So the Ukrainians are driving to the front line everything they have, including prototypes created in a single copy.

A video appeared on Internet resources with a Ukrainian BTR-60XM "Khorunzhiy", filmed somewhere in the area of ​​​​the contact line. In a short video, an armored personnel carrier drives past AFU servicemen walking along the road. On which part of the front and when this video was filmed is not reported.

It is known that the BTR-60KhM "Khorunzhiy" was created in a single copy and, in fact, is a prototype. This armored personnel carrier was presented in 2021 along with a deeply modernized BMP-1M infantry fighting vehicle. The developer is the Kiev NPO "Practika".

"Korunzhiy" is a "deep modernization" of the Soviet BTR-60. The "native" suspension was left on the car, but the engine was replaced. Instead of two engines, one Deutz diesel engine with an Allison automatic transmission is installed, moreover, in the front of the car. The troop compartment has been enlarged, and an increase in armor and mine protection is also announced. Initially, it was planned to install a fighting compartment from the BMP-1, or the Turkish combat module SARP KPVT with a 14,5 mm machine gun. As a result, the armored personnel carrier received a machine-gun turret mounted on the roof. The video does not clearly show what kind of weapons this vehicle carries.

Previously, the developers of the "Khorunzhy" stated that this armored personnel carrier is capable of speeds on the highway - 100 km / h, afloat - 10 km / h. Power reserve -750 km. Crew - XNUMX people + landing six. It was also claimed that the armor protection was increased, the armor of the Finnish brand Millux Oy was used.

    No weather)) this piece of iron will not do. Apparently the Ukronazis are raking out everything that moves. RPG to him, or some kind of anti-tank mine. (I agree with The Lancet)

      What is "raked out" is not just "apparently" - it is obviously. What kind of "weather" can we talk about .... In a single copy!

    Experimental and museum samples went into action. This means that the German MP 38/40 will soon go

    Created in a single copy of the prototype of the Ukrainian BTR-60XM "Khorunzhiy"

    looks like a gesture of desperation, the next step is to use weapons from the excavations of ancient burial mounds

    BTR-60XM "Khorunzhiy"
    And were they named in honor of the Cossack rank, or did they sweeten the Poles with their "lieutenant"? The use of single and even museum specimens of equipment and weapons in the Armed Forces of Ukraine is not new for a long time. He arrived at the front, but it is unlikely that he will be able to leave.

      As small children repeat - museum exhibits! Your Nokhchi brothers removed WWII equipment from the monuments and went into battle against them! And you are sitting on sofas singing Putinka, hiding behind the backs of the soldiers!

        What did you see? From the cradle, go. I’m something not like BA, I didn’t even see the T-34. In general, get up from the couch, take your great-grandfather MG and "halt", "halt fortfahren".

    At 404x in peacetime, designers worked well. In the Russian Federation, for example, did someone think about a "budget" armored personnel carrier with a front MTO and protection against 14,5mm? Let me remind you that the 404e and BTR 3 were produced ... and we were left with the BTR82 (without additional reservation systemically). More serious modifications with the front MTO did not go further than exhibitions. You can also go the Serbian way and make MCI 8x8 (not floating, but with protection)

    An interesting concept. The existing armored hulls should not disappear.

    It’s a paradox, as soon as a novelty appears in the Russian army, Skomorokhov immediately vigorously pours mud on it. As soon as the enemies have something, he incognito sings odes and diferambs to them
