Russian engineering troops will receive new equipment

As it became known from sources in the Ministry of Defense, as early as next year, modern equipment designed for remote mine clearance of territories can be sent to the engineering troops.

The new installation UR-07М, developed at the engineering research institute of Balashikha and manufactured at the Rubtsovsk machine-building plant, will replace the installations UR-77, which received the nickname “Zmey Gorynych” among the troops.

Installation for mine clearance is collected on the basis of the BMP-3 chassis and has the ability to penetrate minefields at a distance of one kilometer. A distinctive feature of the new technology is the ability to combat any type of mines.

The tests carried out at the installation confirmed its universal ability to deal with any mines, including seismic ones and a double fuse. The UR-07М is able to punch through a safe corridor in a minefield for several seconds, through which not only infantry, but also military equipment can pass.

How many installations of the UR-07M will go into service, while not precisely defined. The decision will be made after the completion of all documentation and coordination with the relevant authorities of the issue of the inclusion of new equipment in the State Border Order for 2014 year.

At the same time, it became known that the Rubtsovsk Machine-Building Plant is ready for serial production of installations.

UR-07 “Re-sorting” is a Russian remote mine clearance installation. Developed in the design office of the Rubtsovsk machine-building plant.
It is intended for making passages in anti-tank minefields in an explosive manner during combat operations of troops.

• Base machine (510 product on the BMP-3 units and aggregates);
• Armament;
• Special starting equipment;
• Optional equipment.
As of the 2009 year, the state defense order provided for the delivery of at least one demining plant UR-07М. The cost of one car was 54052870 rubles 00 kopecks.
The UR-07М mine clearance installation is intended for making passages in minefields. Demining can be done both from the ground and from the water. To make passes in the machine, a launcher with clearance charges UZP-06 or UZP-06 and a brake rope release mechanism was installed. The feed range of the UZP-06 charges is 340 meters, and the UZP-06D charges - 1 km. Weight, respectively, 2,85 t and 1,35 t. In addition, the equipment of the machine includes crane equipment and a lifting mechanism for the launcher. The chassis is equipped with devices for monitoring the terrain, as well as communications, extinguishing fires, heating and air conditioning. To mask the machine on the battlefield, the 902 “Tucha” smoke screen curtain system installed on the hull consists of 6 81-mm grenade launchers for firing smoke grenades.

Weight, kg:
• installations with 20000 fire pack
• UZP-06 2850 ammunition
• UZP-06D 1350 ammunition

Average fuel consumption per 100 km, l (l / h) 121 (66)
Average oil consumption per 100 km, l (l / h) 3,6 (1,97)

    It is necessary. It is necessary to supply new equipment to the troops. And the more, the better.

      Well, well, one cannot disagree with this. And it’s just great that new equipment also began to come into our engineering troops, now the new “Serpent Gorynych”, I would also like to stop at this ...

      Really needed! And the first time he was convinced of this in the army, in Chechnya, when trenches, dugouts, coponiers, and much more were digging by hand, at a time when there had long been equipment - trenchers.

    The fleet of Russian engineering equipment is now outdated. Need to update. Although, in terms of the level of equipment with engineering weapons and their capabilities, the USSR army far bypassed probable "friends." This groundwork cannot be missed.

    Who comes up with such names for military equipment?

    Serpent Gorynych is something with something. Khan Mamai just nervously smokes on the sidelines.

    There were still analogues in the portable version, if I’m not mistaken, in “one gut”, and not two in one salvo.
    But they carried him anywhere. In a low-rise town, they could “build” a street for them in a few seconds through the rubble, gardens and sheds. But of course, he does not “knock down” high-rise buildings and stone houses.
    When they saw this installation, they tried to fade away: it hits the ears, the radish is not weak even at a distance. It goes to everyone.

    I don’t understand one thing in the article: since they are developing the boomerang, kurgan and armata families, why now upgrade to the 3 BMP?
    The current installation on the basis of the "clove" with two charges is not so bad, and may wait for a new, unified base.

    Respect Gorynychu.

      Take it easy! I'm at work, I almost died of laughter. ++++
      And the sappers called the Serpent Gorynych the Longer Charge UZ-3 (and for the cause), and by urk this name was inherited by inheritance.

        Greetings, Sergey.

        But somehow I happened to see the application mainly in a portable form and not on a self-propelled base (the landfill does not count, it’s far away). And the guys tried to immediately discharge it on purpose, so that the "gut" with explosives would not lie idle underfoot. They were always guarded, only Buratin saw greater security.
        The infantry was always happy to see it, but it always said amicably: "soaring, ticking, ticking, ticking from here."

        And the “extended charge” is that, tell me? And who became the ancestor of such a name as "Gorynych" if he was adopted by "urka"? Very interesting.

          Good to you!

          Marginal notes. The UZ-3 charge in its variant of pushing or pulling proved to be a perfectly acceptable way of making passages in minefields. Often it was used in a simpler version - it was disassembled into separate pipes and sappers manually laid out these pipes in a minefield, moving along rut passages made by a tank with a KMT-6 or KMT-5M trawl, and then undermined them electrically. This method is much slower, but you don’t need to beg tanks from tank commanders that no one will give sappers anyway, and secondly, it is very reliable. Of course, if they do not shoot at the minefield at this time.

          At the same time, the version of the UZ-3P with powder jet engines turned out to be complete nonsense.
          Firstly, it was required that the terrain had a slope of no more than 2-3% and that there were no obstacles (hemp, mounds, stones) above 05-0.8 m. Secondly, the charge had to be collected at the launch site, immediately aiming it in the right direction. Can you imagine the night scuffle of sappers in a flat, completely open area with the clang of wrenches, the sounds of footsteps, the sonorous knocks of the metal parts being joined, the quiet mothers, the wink of flashlights just 200-300 meters from the enemy waiting for the attack? It is easy to imagine the end result of such an activity.
          And thirdly, it is impossible to agree on the simultaneous launch and full thrust of three to four dozen powder engines. As a result, one part of the charge was still rising with the intention of moving forward, the other was already trying with might and main to fly forward, the third was still dozing peacefully on the ground, the fourth ...
          So, this one-hundred-meter-long construction weighing 3 tons, spewing fire and smoke with a wild roar, began to bend, rise, fidget in different directions. Then, naturally, according to the laws of physics, it was broken into pieces, which began to smoke and howl flying through the sky in various directions. No wonder the UZ-3R immediately received a loud and unflattering name from the infantry and tankers "Zmey Gorynych"

          The author for his many years of service has never seen the successful launch of the UZ-3R. But for some reason, the UZ-3R was in great authority at the Main Military Engineering Directorate (GUIU), and at all general meetings, ostentatious classes, with obstinacy worthy of the best use, they tried to show the launch of the UZ-3R, risking in one fell swoop to destroy the whole the top of the Soviet Army. These dangerous games ended only with the advent of the UR-67, UR-77, UR-83P mine clearance systems, which could really throw a meter-long flexible hose with explosives into the 100 minefield and undermine it and they worked very well.
          Only then did the bosses' interest in UZ-3P go out and we were able to breathe a sigh of relief.

    You can ask experts why this system is based on the BMP-3 is done? Does it really not make sense to put it on a cheaper chassis?
    The cost of one car was 54052870 rubles 00 kopecks.

    This is a rather high price.
