The pipeline battalion of the Southern Military District is equipped with new equipment

The development of a new technology marks the 61 anniversary of the creation of pipeline troops in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation by servicemen of a separate pipeline battalion of the Southern Military District (South Military District) located in the Stavropol Territory.

According to the rearmament program in the middle of last year, the replacement of automotive company vehicles with new models was carried out. More than 40 units of KAMAZ-53501 off-road vehicles intended for long-distance transportation of the PMTP-100 and PMTP-150 field trunk pipelines were received.

For the first time in modern stories of pipeline troops as part of the Kavkaz-2012 strategic command and staff exercise held last September, the personnel laid a pipeline line across the Don River more than 500 meters wide. The servicemen performed this task after completing the 700-kilometer march to Prudboy landfill in Volgograd region.

As part of the special task of building infrastructure at the Ashuluk site in the Astrakhan region, the battalion laid a pipeline for the supply of water 80 km long.

Since the beginning of the new academic year, special tactical tactical classes are held with the servicemen of the pipeline battalion of the Southern Military District, during which practical skills are developed in deploying pipeline lines and fueling, reconnaissance of deployment areas, masking of the PMTP facilities.

Armed with a separate pipeline battalion consists of the field trunk pipelines PMTP-100 and PMTP-150, mobile pumping station PNU-75, pipe joining machine МСТ-100, PSG-160 fuel pumping station and other special equipment.

In the summer of 2010, servicemen from the pipeline battalion of the Southern Military District took part in the extinguishing of burning peatlands in the central part of Russia. They laid the 4 pipeline, providing continuous water supply to the fire sites, with a total length of more than 40 km. Two battalion servicemen were awarded medals "For the Salvation of the Perished."

In June, when carrying out a special tactical exercise in the face of opposing sabotage groups of a conditional enemy, the 2011 stretched an 75-kilometer highway from the settlement of Ardon (Republic of North Ossetia-Alanya) along the Caucasus Range to the border with the Republic of South Ossetia. At certain mountain sites, servicemen laid a pipeline at an altitude of up to 3 thousand meters above sea level.

    All this technique was in the army since the year 1973, if not earlier.
    But it’s good that the pipeline parts have been preserved - the most effective for transporting fuel.

    Moreover, no matter how much they praised the Ministry of Emergencies, and in extinguishing the 2010 fires, the main role was played by the pipeline troops, about which they did not even remember.

      Indeed. Indeed, to liquidate various emergencies, troops of the Moscow Region are often involved, but this is mentioned in passing. The latest example is Krymsk. Just said 5000 servicemen of the Ministry of Defense, and which troops did not say a word. But the Cossacks (I do not want to offend anyone, but according to the locals, they mostly swelled there. I myself went there recently (in September) on a business trip) constantly showed.

    This is an old technique for working on the PMTP-100 pipeline. Very old. More modern PNU-100 / 200М and TUM-150В respectively. The pipes themselves, by the way, were produced by the plant in Ivano-Frankivsk. What happened to him after the collapse of the USSR I do not know. In the pre-reform years (before 2008), the PMTS-150 reinforced fiberglass pipeline was tested.

    We (signalmen) at an urgency in 2010 in the summer for several days moved to peatlands to help these pipelines to lay lines from irrigation canals to fires.

    Manually threw off long metal pipes, laid them in two rows, and specialists followed and linked. It was hard, just tin. By evening, there was no strength to speak. Why not make the same KAMAZ with a small boom-manipulator?

    I remember we were driving up, and in the middle of the peatland 32 brand new trucks stood in even rows, each shining, as if from a conveyor belt, without a speck and scratches, loaded above the cabin with stacks of identical pipes. The guys lived two months in the field. There were supply machines and a pumping station ..

    This is what troops the Caucasians should be called up to in the pipelines. And then they’re racking their brains to put them on.

    One pipe from the PMTP-150-150 kit weighs 80,9 kg - a rather big straw. Pipes at the storage site are stored in stacks in a disassembled form (not reinforced) and loaded into pipelines in batches using a crane. The number of pipes depends on the model of the pipe carrier. The old ZIL-131 took less, the new 4's bridge KAMAZ - more. The loading of pipes from the pipe carrier into the hopper of the TUM-150B pipe-mounting machine is also carried out mechanically using a hydraulic crane device. Well, loading pipes from the ground into the pipe carrier - yes - the old-fashioned way, manually. By the way, two people load them. hi
    And yes - it’s impossible to imagine coordinated work of pipelines without a connection! Yes

    More pipes and equipment, so that at the right time it would be possible to reach Washington.

      I served in this battalion for half a year, and during these half a year we never put them on, we mostly went to the outfits, the finished part, I hated her, I thought that for the troops who needed them, I was completely disappointed in the army, I wanted to transfer right away, but for an conscript, this is unrealistic until I had the opportunity to sign a contract in 42 divisions, I signed it without hesitation, the result of reconnaissance is 291 guards. shelf!

    Did I forget something? But in my opinion there was infa that Serdyukov did not need pipeline troops and he wanted to reform them to zero!
    Maybe I'm wrong?
