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.

      Crap. Great photos. Technically sound information. But is it possible not to stoop to cheap propaganda, calling the military of Ukraine militants? Who needs it? You are confronted by the largest and most efficient army in Europe, and you still call it a gang.

        More precisely, this is the army/mercenaries of the united geyropa and arrogant Saxons.
        If it were the army of Ukraine itself, it would... in general, be clear.
        Objectively, so objectively, from all sides, and not just from the side that is ... preferable.

        What else can you call the bandits who ruined dozens of countries for the sake of their prosperity? They are the most cruel and cold-blooded gang of bandits in the history of mankind.

          If the "gang of bandits" cannot be dispersed by the Army, then questions arise for the Army and its combat capability.

      But sooner or later, in such situations, they will pick up a pill from our minefields, either themselves or with the help of the West. We must be prepared.

        The unprecedented dense mining of the "Surovikin Line" gave rise to all sorts of developments in sapper business.
        For example, “sapper” drones appeared.
        They are equipped with heat sensors: mines heat up more than the environment.
        And metal detectors.
        Drones are launched into the area and they create a map of the minefield.
        Sappers are walking across the map, or remote detonation is being carried out.

          Now it will soon start to get colder and the difference in temperatures will not be so noticeable. Again, those mines that are dug into the ground and do not stand on it do not stand out so much on thermal imagers. Verified. Again, we constantly update minefields, and even after the Ukrovermacht thins them out with cassettes or other methods, they are restored in a couple of nights. hi
          By the way, hello everyone. I'll be with you again for a couple of weeks. soldier lol

        Sooner or later they will pick you up, but why didn’t they pick you up right away? Mines are a weapon that has been known for over 100 years; their reconnaissance should have reported what ours have done in front of the field defense line. Why did they rush through these fields at the beginning with 1 trawl for 20 vehicles, where are their security vehicles, which are computerized and covered with Picatinny rails? Or maybe everything with their intelligence and equipment is not so great? laughing

          In principle, they knew about mines. But the surprise was the density of mining and lack of passage markings between minefields for their own troops.
          Complete mining without cards.

            Only our company installed more than 2 thousand mines in a couple of months. There are different plots, but there are those who set more. You can't quickly shoot something like this under fire. Again, the installation density is now much higher than it should have been according to the textbooks.

        We must be prepared to mine again.. Even while they are being cleared! (technology allows you to do this remotely)

      We are opposed by non-humans with Nazi ideology, armed by the United States and its vassals.
      Goal: destruction of Russia as an independent state.
      This is for idiots and not ours

      The armored hull is bolted together rather than welded like other MRAPs, facilitating field repairs.

      After undermining, the parts are usually deformed so much that all bolted or riveted joints either wedge or break. A very controversial method of fastening armor plates with the expectation of field repairs.

        The bolt can be cut off with a grinder and the armor plate can be removed with a crowbar. But a centimeter crack along the seam will be tortured to brew. So some logic is still there.
        Yes, and after shelling with breaking through the plates, it is also easier to change them.

          The bolt can be cut off with a grinder and the armor plate can be removed with a crowbar.

          And then look for the missing bolts "in the field"? In addition, sometimes the bolt will not only have to be knocked out
          with a sledgehammer, but hammer it into a deformed hole. In principle, this is a well-forgotten old.
          But a centimeter crack along the seam will be tortured to brew.

          What prevents you from cutting off the damaged plate and welding on a new one? Moreover, in case of great need, a piece of armor plate can be welded over the crack. It's like an express option, the main thing is that there is such a piece and there is something to cook.
          As for the deformation of the armor plates, the deformation often happens not only in one part, but also associated with it, so installing a new part will still be quite problematic, since the holes will not match and there may be gaps between the parts. Therefore, in my opinion, it will take no less time and effort than to weld a hole or a crack.

      Nothing prevents the Ukrainians from calling the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation "orcs". So why would we be nice to them?

      There you also need to dig more powerful landmines than 7 kg, especially for such trawls. To make them "disposable".
