A UAZ equipped with anti-drone protection was sent to the Northern Military District zone

In order to meet all the new challenges that our military faces during a special military operation in Ukraine, Russian specialists are constantly working to improve the technology and equipment used in the North Military District.

As you know, unmanned aerial vehicles play a big role in this conflict, which often cause a lot of trouble, even if they are small.



To protect our soldiers in the Northern Military District zone, JSC "Research Institute of Steel" together with NJSC "Metal Invest" equipped the UAZ military vehicle with special protection against drones and fragments installed on the roof of the car. As reported on the official website of the Kalashnikov concern, the UAZ with anti-drone and anti-fragmentation protection has already been sent to the North Military District zone.

The concern notes that the main reasons for the loss of such vehicles are precisely related to attacks by FPV drones and being hit by shrapnel during shell or rocket attacks.

Protective structures are made of durable and at the same time fairly lightweight materials. The protection can be installed not only on the roof, but also on the hood and doors of the car.

Both the car itself and its protection were manufactured and transferred to the SVO fighters free of charge

- says the Kalashnikov concern.

It is likely that in the future, cars with such protection will appear in the SVO zone more and more often.

    Ummmmm - yes, sure enough, something similar will fly into the side of the car, so that it doesn’t cling on hinges to the roof, also on springs at the dead center, so that when the door is opened, it tilts up on its own, and then you put it in place with your hands. .. well, in general there is a lot of work to do request

        Perhaps.... at the control panel they showed something like this polymer... it's sprayed... maybe it is - it's hard to say... but definitely not enough... the fpv carries a decent amount of it.

        IMHO passive will not help much here, because the armor is thin... the king of the barbecue doesn’t care about FPV at all... not only is the armor additionally 360%, but the sides behind it are 80mm, I don’t remember at the back, but it’s enough. But light mobile vehicles, even armored personnel carriers/infantry fighting vehicles, require active protection recourse

      In theory, there should be a light but high (at least a meter above the roof, or more) frame made of luminescent tubes, and a camouflage net should be stretched on top. Why? Yes, because the weight of the protection will have to be subtracted from the payload of the car. And the center of gravity moves upward, and it’s easier to put the UAZ on its side when turning. And the camouflage network of quadrics or a dropped grenade should hold. True, it will not protect the windshield from FPV, and covering the windshield will blind the driver. Although... there’s a cheap monitor in the cabin, a camera on the front of the hood, and if you get the hang of it, you’re good to go. Of course, not in city traffic, but on an empty road or off-road.

    This protection will help against grenades dropped from FPV drones when they are hunting stationary equipment on the ground.
    Against a kamikadze strike - no. So, they hit from horizontal flight at a height less than the body of the car.

      How was it before? In the zone of small arms fire, only lightly armored vehicles should have driven at a minimum. Next are non-armored trucks and cars. And now drones have attacked the place where there was a relatively safe rear. The protection is visible on the hood, as well as on the doors.

    Doubtful. Additional light screens are only effective if there is serious armor behind them. Then the explosion occurs at some distance from the armor, and this reduces the effectiveness of the cumulative jet. But if behind the screen there is a thin skin of an ordinary car, then the blast wave will have enough residual energy to overcome this skin and hit the crew.

    Collection vehicles must be sent there. They are written off every 5 or 10 years and so on. 3rd class of protection is already something. They can’t cross a loaf with a Hunter on a 3153 UAZ chassis. The front part is along the middle post of Hunter and further from the loaf. Although there were already a couple of benches inside, just put the second row along the side and make fastenings for the stretcher. There are frames on both UAZ and Gazelles - they simply cannot weld an armored hull. There were armored cars based on the GAZ-64-67.

        But apparently you don’t know about the UAZ 3153, 3159. That originally there was a 3160 with a wheelbase like the 469 and its axles. Then the frame became longer and we got 3162. And now we get 3163 - Patriot. Plus the bridges are not 1445 mm wide but 1600 mm. And the Pro with a two-row cab has become even longer. And you also don’t know how the frames on Gazelles were lengthened?! About the hybrid of the Hunter and the loaf - the layout in the cabin can essentially be changed. They are just initially cheaper than Patriot. The UAZ is not designed to carry more than 1 ton on board or a loaf, only for the factory and the traffic police. Many people load 2 tons without looking. And in Abasia they can stuff 3 tons of tangerines, and even with a trailer. Don’t compare the urgency of delivering and exporting goods at the front with your own personal car, bought with your last money in the hope of driving it for 30 years. And the overloaded helicopters flew when necessary.

            This is not my nonsense. I got a little confused. I saw 2 tons of potatoes and 5 people myself. Doctors from Orenburg bought the potatoes. And 3 tons in a Gazelle with tangerines, 2 tons in a UAZ, 900 kg in a Lada six - they wrote in Za Rulem when they themselves went to Abkhazia before the New Year. Data from customs. At the front, I think few UAZs have lived for the last 2 years or more from the beginning until now. The problem with the UAZ is the closed frame. On Gazelles, amplifier inserts are made to lengthen them. It was possible to order a frame for a Gazelle or Kamaz with double side members. Not known now. The motor, even though it is strictly original, must match down to the letters and numbers - a complete ban on replacement even within the same engine family. 402 cannot be changed to 406 or 405. Just like 4216, you can’t give up on ZMZ or diesel.

        Let me add - on a standard onboard gazelle produced in 1998 with a 402 engine, the smart guys transported 5 tons of feed around Orenburg - 5 km 20 liters of gasoline... That's why collectors change equipment once every 5 years, or even every 3. Damn specialists... On In Duster cars, without modifications, the rear door opening turns inside out. By the way, on Nivas, too, when the rear door was lowered to the bumper and the lights were removed at the corners, this also sometimes happened at first.

        To catch up - the plant did not test the Gazelle and Sobol with trailers. But someone calmly certified towbars for them, all of which hauled trailers up to one and a half tons, or even more. And now it’s kind of impossible... How do you like the Sobol NN with a loading capacity on docks and certification of 150 kg?! Stupidly, in order to fit into the cargo frame of Moscow without a pass, 2,5 tons of total weight... Morons. All. that's all.
