The creator of the Sherp all-terrain vehicle presented a tactical pickup truck for the Russian Armed Forces

Alexey Maratovich Garagashyan, a modern self-taught inventor, who is known to many for the development of the all-wheel drive two-wheeled all-terrain vehicle "Bely", the all-terrain vehicle "Sherp", as well as the light mountain motorcycle "Bars", presented his next brainchild during the Army-2023 forum.

The prototype, designated AG-34, is a tactical pickup truck for military personnel of the Russian Armed Forces.

According to the designer, his caring comrades proposed creating a buggy for the Russian army. However, Garagashyan himself decided that it would be more advisable in the current conditions to use a pickup truck, which can transport cargo, wounded people and install various weapons. At the same time, such a vehicle will be more mobile than a truck, which also plays a significant role in conditions of high-intensity conflict.

As for the AG-34, the designers ended up with something between a pickup truck and a buggy. The car is created on the basis of a space frame, which boasts the highest strength.

If the car tumbles down the mountain several times, and the crew is fastened, then nothing will happen to it

- said Garagashyan.

The vehicle's ground clearance is 320 mm, which allows it to overcome difficult obstacles and deep ruts. The vehicle tires produced by the Ural plant are so durable that a tactical pickup truck can continue to move even after severe damage to the tire. The latter’s own rigidity, as the designer explained, is enough to prevent it from sitting on the disk.

The maximum load capacity of the AG-34, according to the developer, is 3 tons. At the same time, for fast driving over rough terrain, the payload should not exceed 1,5 tons.

The pickup truck body can accommodate nine two-hundred-liter barrels of fuel or three standard pallets with cargo. The design of the sides is designed for quick unloading, which allows you not to stagnate in place and not come under enemy fire.

The maximum speed of the car reaches 120 km/h.

A buggy pickup can carry up to 8 people and be equipped with various weapons and armor protection.

        Something tells me that our bureaucracy will lead the project and the adoption of a product in demand in the army to a dead end. And the development itself will be copied today by the Chinese and tomorrow it will be brought to life, and the day after tomorrow it will already work for their army, and we will still be proud of the development, but it did not go to the troops.

      It was possible, but a long time ago. STZ died, the Vladimir and Lipetsk tractor plants went into oblivion, KamTZ was never born, but died in conception, but the idea was good, if there was a war with the West, the dual-purpose plant should have quickly switched to the production of tanks.
      The war has come, but the factories are no longer there.

    He doesn’t need to go to an exhibition, he needs to immediately fit a couple of three into the troops for trial operation. It would have been more useful for promotion and at the same time I would have immediately received “complaints” for fine-tuning. But outwardly it doesn’t look so bad, I’d drive or go fishing...

    Why combat? Unless the combat wheels are of increased reliability, and even that is doubtful. And this is an ordinary machine for rural areas. Sending one of these to the Northern Military District zone is simply a crime. The first stray bullet or shrapnel will pierce it, not to mention spare parts for MTO.

      Yeah, but a Patriot or some unarmored Kamaz/Ural is a completely different matter, here shrapnel and bullets are powerless.
      The man set the task of making a passable, indestructible, load-lifting machine at a reasonable price, from available units, with normal hardware.
      IMHO, a great option, in comparison with UAZs, Patriots, Hussars and other Shishigs. But most likely competitors will bite

    Nice design. For both military and civilians. Make a warm cabin and here is a universal transport for private owners, for example, for farmers. The main thing is that it is made from what is available on a given day. Buy parts and rivet them in any workshop where there is welding. soldier

    AT the expense of the aviation method of transportation (8.16 min).
    With all due respect to the creator-author, instead of a butt-welded tube, it would be better to use a platinum with a hole of the required thickness and welded overlapping to the body frame or in the form of a hook; it would be both more technologically advanced and more reliable.
    The hook can also be equipped with a safety latch to ensure the reliability of the lashing.
    Sorry for my thoughts, well, it’s just that a bend of a pipe with a weight of five tons (the weight of a pickup truck is 3200 kg and +9 200 liter barrels) may simply not withstand.
    I don’t want to offend or teach anyone, it’s just that somehow the inconsistency caught my eye. It seems beautiful, but somehow it’s gnawing. what

    There are ten such units in each garage cooperative.

    And what’s going on on YouTube and forums (like! :).

    Where are the specifics?
    What internal combustion engine?
    Bridges from what?
    What about the driver's working conditions?
    What about the price? For piece production, small-scale, serial?

      A little more:
      Its chassis uses elements from the GAZ Sadko Next truck, the ground clearance is 420 mm. Toothed tires measuring 1260x390-20 have a centralized inflation system on the go. The weight of the all-terrain pickup truck is 3,2 tons, the load capacity is 1,5 tons (with a permissible double overload).
      The AG 34 is powered by a 240-horsepower diesel engine of the YaMZ-534 family.

    The car is good, but in general it is not a military vehicle at all.
    And the price is unknown.

    He has the AG-30, announced last summer, it is already in mass production and that all-terrain vehicle costs at least 6,9 million rubles:

    There are inaccuracies in the article: The ground clearance of the vehicle is not 320 mm, but 420 mm (more than that of the Urals). High ground clearance is an important quality of a car.

    Of course, Alexey’s civic position is commendable.
    BUT, unlike other commentators, I have seen Sherpa and even ridden, if this is not exactly like that, then thank you, but no need.
