New armored car to 2015 year

Currently, the Russian army and security forces have several types of vehicles for the transport of goods and passengers. Recently it became known that this wide range in the near future will expand the family of machines that can replace several previous ones.

According to the Chief of the Main Automobile and Armored Directorate of the Ministry of Defense, Major General A. Shevchenko, technical requirements have already been developed for a promising vehicle for our armed forces. The finished vehicle will be put into service as early as 2015. Such a short development time due to the fact that domestic auto enterprises already have a number of developments that will be useful in the development of the finished car. Obviously, these developments are directly related to the basic requirements of the GABTU.

New armored car to 2015 year

The new army vehicle, according to Shevchenko, must meet three basic requirements. It must be mobile and have an average speed of movement on various surfaces of at least 45-50 kilometers per hour; lifting, down to the level of civilian trucks; as well as protected. The technical assignment implies the introduction of protection elements even at the level of building machines. From the factory conveyor cars should go with armored protection. Booking a prospective car should provide protection from both bullets and explosive devices, which makes it possible to classify it as an MRAP vehicle.

The appearance of reports on the development of a new car in addition to its exemplary appearance immediately attracted public attention. Regarding the prospective armored car has already expressed a variety of opinions, including quite sharp. For example, in discussions, the topic of licensed production of Iveco LMV (“Lynx”) machines, which is sometimes called unsuitable for the Russian army, both for technical and political reasons, “surfaced” again. Moreover, there was an opinion about the need for the earliest replacement of the “Ryysya” with new domestic cars. It should be noted that the head of GABTU did not specify the details of the technical specifications, primarily related to the curb weight and carrying capacity. Because of this, the thesis of an unsuitable “Lynx” may contradict the requirements for greater carrying capacity. It is possible that the Ministry of Defense wants to get a more heavy-duty armored car than the Italian-Russian.

In the context of ongoing disputes about “Lynx”, as well as recent events in the Ministry of Defense, an opinion emerged about a certain connection between the beginning of the development of a new machine and the change of leadership of the military department. Obviously, such an opinion hardly describes actual events. This general appearance of a promising armored car fits completely into the concept of development of military motor vehicles, approved in January, long before the resignation of the previous Minister of Defense, A. Serdyukov. In addition, the development of technical specifications for the project always takes a lot of time. Therefore, the date of the appearance of messages about the new project has nothing to do with the change of the military leadership of the country.

The words of General Shevchenko about the planned use of new armored cars can open the veil of secrecy over the approximate appearance of a future car. He argues that the new project will be able to provide the armed forces with trucks, passenger and intelligence vehicles. On the one hand, this clarification allows us to draw conclusions about the dimensions and mass of the new car, but on the other hand, the general basis for the cargo and reconnaissance armored vehicles looks at least ambiguous. Similar foreign projects with such capabilities usually represent light or medium armored vehicles with a limited payload in the cargo version.

If we are talking about a heavy multi-axle armored car, then, most likely, GABTU updated the requirements of the Typhoon program, or decided to create a new project based on it. Both existing variants of armored vehicles "Typhoon" are based on trucks and, as a result, have good indicators of the weight carried. Accordingly, such machines will perfectly cope not only with the transportation of fighters, but also with the towing of artillery guns, as well as other tasks of a similar sense. At the same time, it is difficult to imagine how a heavy and high armored car at the Typhoon base in the variant of the KAMAZ enterprise or the Ural Automobile Plant will carry out raids on the enemy rear near the front line. Of course, such a vehicle can carry 10-12 fighters with equipment and protect them from mines and shelling. However, such armored cars do not look similar to what is usually understood by the term “reconnaissance vehicle”.

While the state and appearance of the promising armored car's new project is almost unclear and causes a large number of questions, another vehicle of a similar purpose will complete state tests in the coming months. It is reported that the armored vehicle SPM-3 "Bear" during this winter will be tested in the conditions of the north of our country, after which relevant conclusions will be made about its prospects. It is noteworthy that in the design of "Bear" applied a set of measures corresponding to the concept of MRAP. It is possible that the developments on the project SPM-3 will be used to create a new multi-purpose armored truck.

          Maybe they won't bring "Tiger" ... But hto told you that this very Italian armored vehicle is the most panacea for the Russian Army. Is there really nothing better and more attractive in the whole world than the aforementioned "Ivekovian" brainchild, nicknamed "Lynx"? ..
          Indeed, the right word can be joked with manufacturers of light armored vehicles. You look and something better is found, but cheaper ... Maybe the comrades from Israel will provide that ... Or something domestic will ripen ...

      There are several types of them, each type to fulfill its tasks, where it is easy to rush with the breeze, and somewhere as an alternative to a light tank. Everything is correct that they mess around. The right thing for different army groups. More would be, but their own production, and not "Italians" there any.

    With this I completely agree. The main thing is that the movement began in the right direction, but the redundancy of the number of armored cars, or rather their types ... There are other power structures, there are export opportunities ... A decent car will find its application.

    In October, he was at the Interpolitech exhibition, sat in French cars. I do not know how they are in operation and what is the protection, but they are comfortable in them. This is of course subjective, but my feeling is that utilitarian machines of narrow application were designed according to clear technical requirements, by professional automotive designers who know firsthand what ergonomics are, color groups, the internal layout of additional equipment and standard equipment.
    Our cars made a very worthy though complex impression of some kind of incompleteness. It feels like people do not have just a clear and intelligible TK and do not design within the framework of possible tasks, but try to achieve maximum universality. That is, they don’t imagine that they need the Ministry of Internal Affairs or the Ministry of Internal Affairs or someone else.
    Surprised by "Scorpio", or rather the attitude of the manufacturer's representatives. An escort vehicle with an armored capsule (or whatever you call it) and an open front radiator and, accordingly, an engine, and the question was answered

    All these developments are interesting only in that they occupy designers.
    In my opinion, it is necessary to develop a modular production platform, which could be produced in large series as a civilian, police and military vehicle. There should be a line of engines, preferably diesel. Modularity and outboard booking kits will enhance the versatility of the car. You do not always need a car armored in 6A class. General’s ass can also be carried on an unarmored vehicle. For the advanced it is possible to make outboard booking kits with a more powerful engine.
    In general, I have never seen the TK, it is not clear what the bridges will be (portal or ordinary split or continuous); how will all-wheel drive be implemented, through center and cross-axle differentials or through electronically controlled multi-plate clutches; how the engine will be located (longitudinally or transversely, And many other issues. For some reason, all discussions boil down to discussing existing copies. For example, I do not understand how a car without a center differential on a rigid bridge connection can move over rough terrain at a speed of even 45 km / h There are excellent off-road vehicles, for example, Gelendvagen, a real rogue, and there is a possibility for outboard armoring using not only "pure" iron, but also "soft" Kevlar armor and ceramics.

What about "caring for people" like They are there, and we are here ...., do not confuse a famous place with a finger, not some kind of concern, but banal pragmatism - payments for injuries and deaths !!! - called insurance and more there is nothing!!!
    Well, before what to strain there are other people's samples, you can, after all, they are licensed, etc., etc., and so my personal opinion is not something that is completely alien, but not even a single "screw-tongue" is a foreigner in our military technology should not be present, but this does not mean at all that potential and not only adversaries should not and should not "learn", just the opposite should and should and not only learn but also "steal", as China does, if there are no analogues and do not be ashamed of it, but do not advertise !!!

        New Stalin ??? This is a problem in the Russian state. Nobody will take the new to power. Everything has been distributed and divided for a long time. Each noble pig has its own feeding trough. Stalin appeared as a result of many years of bloody struggle. And now who is fighting and for what? Well, except that for budget funds, they are biting between clans, and the fake opposition is traveling along the streets. True, prisoners of conscience and political prisoners have appeared. But this is one. The people are sleeping and do not want to change anything. So far everyone is comfortable. So, Stalin still needs to be earned.
