The armored car of the Armed Forces of Ukraine M1124 MaxxPro with the mine trawl "Spark 2" got into the frame
The network published footage showing an American armored car M1124 MaxxPro, equipped with a mine trawl "Spark 2". As stated, these combat vehicles are taking part in the exercises of the 58th separate motorized infantry brigade of the Ukrainian army.
On the footage, you can see how an American armored car with an attached mine trawl moves along a dirt road, and also overcomes minor obstacles.
A number of International M1224 MaxxPro were supplied to the militants of the Kyiv regime by their American handlers. Machines of this type are used by the US Army and are designed to eventually replace the HMMWV armored vehicles. According to the Pentagon program, the machine was designed with mine protection installed.
The base model M1224 MaxxPro has an armored capsule for the crew, as well as a V-shaped hull designed to deflect mines or improvised explosive devices from the vehicle, while still providing protection for the crew. During the tests, this design withstood explosions of land mines weighing 7 kilograms.
According to the Navistar Defense portal, the vehicle is designed with availability in mind and uses standardized, readily available parts, allowing for quick repairs and maintenance. The armored hull is bolted rather than welded like other MRAPs, making it easier to repair in the field.
Earlier it was reported about the unsuccessful operation of these armored vehicles in Ukraine. It is noted that armored vehicles of this type experience difficulties when moving on relatively loose ground.
