The new Ukrainian-made BTR-4MV armored personnel carrier has been adopted

122



Ukrainian company "Ukrspetsexport" in the framework of the largest armory the exhibition "IDEX-2013", held in the United Arab Emirates in January 2013, presented a novelty of domestic-made armored vehicles. The new armored personnel carrier is based on the famous BTR-4, but has a number of distinctive characteristics.

The new appearance of the armored personnel carrier is the result of not only the requirements of the Ukrainian military, but also the desire of the Ukrainian manufacturer to make a worthy competition in the global arms market. Recall earlier (to be exact, last year) an armored personnel carrier of the same series - the BTR-4E was adopted by the army of Ukraine. The development of this model of light armored vehicles since the 2007 year, was engaged in the Morozov Kharkiv Design Bureau.

If in a few words to describe the basic version of the BTR-4, it is in its layout is significantly different from the armored personnel carriers that were created earlier, in particular, the BTR-60, BTR-70 and BTR-80. This car has differences with the Russian model BTR-90. In the BTR-4 armored personnel carrier, the control compartment was located in the front of the hull, while the power compartment along with the engine was located in the central part of the left, immediately behind the driver’s seat, and the landing compartment was in the rear of the hull. Such an arrangement of the machine makes it possible to transform the landing and combat compartments to create different types of support vehicles (fire, sanitary, repair and evacuation, command and staff) without altering the technical decisions regarding the placement of the transmission and power plant.

The adoption of an armored personnel carrier was a significant success for the Ukrainian military, but even after that, the Ministry of Defense was interested in further upgrading the BTR-4 armored personnel carrier as the main vehicle for equipping the ground forces of the army. In particular, further modernization was assumed in terms of enhancing armor and mine protection, providing more comfortable conditions for the landing and landing of the landing force. Specialists from the Kharkiv Moroz Design Bureau in a short time managed to meet all these requirements. Thus, the new BTR-4MV armored personnel carrier appeared.

The new Ukrainian-made BTR-4MV armored personnel carrier has been adopted


This machine is designed to transport personnel of the ground forces, as well as the implementation of their fire support in modern combat. It is supposed to use an armored personnel carrier in those units that can conduct military operations under any conditions, in particular, in the case of the use of weapons of mass destruction by the enemy. In addition, this armored personnel carrier can be used as a base vehicle for equipping units of the special reaction forces and marine corps. According to the presented characteristics, the machine can be used in any climatic conditions, at any time of the day, on roads of various surfaces and even on impassable roads.

The crew of the new machine is three people, and consists of the commander, driver and gunner, and the landing can include about seven to ten people (it depends on what kind of combat module is installed on the armored personnel carrier).

The exact weight of the armored personnel carrier BTR-4МВ is not declared by the designers. It is known that it is on the order of 17,5 tons, subject to standard and mine booking, and about 22 tons, provided enhanced booking.

The car is driven by one of the three engine models, depending on which manufacturer the customer preferred - the German Deutz, the Ukrainian ZTD, or the Italian Iveco. As for the BTR-4E, it has a three-cylinder diesel engine of Ukrainian production ZTD-3А, which has horsepower and automatic hydromechanical transmission in 400. As for the first model of the BTR-4MV presented at the arms exhibition, this machine was equipped with a German six-cylinder diesel engine Deutz BF6M1015CP, which has horsepower 450 and gives the speed of 110 kilometers per hour. The power reserve is equal to 670 kilometers.

As for the passage and maneuvering qualities, they are basically identical to those possessed by the BTR-4E. Moreover, according to the developers themselves, even after enhancing the level of booking, the new armored personnel carrier retained its buoyancy and could overcome water obstacles at a speed of about 10 kilometers per hour. It is worth noting that the number of armored personnel carriers with similar characteristics and the level of booking, while possessing buoyancy, is quite small. However, it should be borne in mind that in the event of further armor gain, it will be impossible to maintain buoyancy. In addition, in most cases, customers are not very interested in buoyancy, the main characteristics when choosing a particular model are the survivability of the vehicle and crew in a collision with firing means of defeating the enemy not only on the battlefield, but also in the conditions of peacekeeping operations.

Another distinctive feature of the new armored personnel carrier is that its ballistic protection level has been significantly increased. Thus, according to the requirements of STANAG-4269, the BTR-4МВ possesses the 5 level of protection, that is, it is able to withstand shelling millimeter 25 caliber from a distance of about half a kilometer.

If we compare the new car with the BTR-4E, then its layout in the nose section is significantly changed. In order to strengthen the reservation of the frontal part, it was decided to completely abandon the armored glass, as well as from the side doors of the driver and commander. Thus, it is possible to install additional, including dynamic and ceramic protection. In addition, according to a certain level of mine protection, the BTR-4MB has an 3 level of ballistic protection according to NATO standards, that is, it is able to withstand an explosion of a mine of about 8 kilograms in TNT. At the same time, an additional grid can be installed on the armored personnel carrier to provide protection against various types of hand-held anti-tank grenades.

If we talk about the firepower of the new armored personnel carrier, it should be noted that it is very significant. The BTR-4MV provides for the installation of various types of combat universal modules with rendered weapons, designed specifically for light armored vehicles. In particular, we are talking about remote-controlled modules "Storm", "Grad" and "Parus", BAU-32, as well as combat modules of foreign production (depending on the wishes of the customer). As for the first model presented in the United Arab Emirates, the Parus module was installed on it, consisting of a ZTM-1 cannon of 30 caliber of millimeters, a coaxial machine gun, an 7,62 caliber of a millimeter, an AG-17 automatic grenade launcher and an anti-tank missile system Barrier .

Note that the combat module can control both the shooter and the commander with the help of electromechanics. Observation and aiming can be conducted using low-level opto-electronic television devices. In addition, a separate panoramic surveillance device, the Panorama-2P target designator, is provided for the commander.

Together with the complex "Sail" in the landing compartment can fit 7 people. The driver and commander can land and disembark either through the stern, like a landing party, or use the upper hatches. On the right side between the control and landing sections there is a small passage. For orientation and analysis of the situation, the commander may use a circular chamber mounted on the tower. The image is transmitted to the monitor installed in front of the commander.

And finally, another feature of the new BTR-4MV armored personnel carrier is the new aft part. Instead of a door with a vertical middle jumper mounted on the BTR-4E, there is a special ramp that is lowered across the entire width of the landing compartment, which makes it possible to significantly speed up the process of landing and disembarking the landing force. In addition, it allows the use of an armored personnel carrier as a carrier of bulky goods, in particular, additional ammunition, weapons and spare parts. The ramp also has an additional door that can be used for landing and landing troops.

      Those who argue, at least do something, they constantly upgrade.
      We have in place a more modern BTR-90 ((without aft entrance, etc. ..)) but we have nothing more modern.
      Again began production, BTR80 / 82.
      In the presented images, the BTR -4 MV has no anti-fragmentation lining in the case.
      3STANAG mine protection is declared. But the bottom of the armored personnel carrier is flat.
      And to pull out an 8-kg undermining in a fuel cell without a v-shaped bottom is fantastic.
      Ballistic protection 25 mm projectile, with 500 meters. STANAG-5. Look overpriced.
      The 25-mm M242 cannon, Bushmaster, has an external automatic chain drive and dual-belt firing 25/137-mm ammunition, are widely used in NATO.
      They stand, on the BMP ,, Bradley ,, M2 and Dardo or BTR LAV-25 with a wheel formula of 8/8.
      25 mm shells; high-explosive fragmentation, semi-armor-piercing high-explosive incendiary, sub-caliber, multi-purpose and practical training.
      In the 90s, a feathered armor-piercing tracer with detachable leading parts, the M919 with a core from depleted uranium DU, was introduced into the United States.
      Tag, the ATK, Mecar and Oerlikon firms delivered APFSDS-T shells with a tungsten core to the troops.
      25-mm projectile - Oerlikon PMB090, subsequently adopted by the United States, Canada, and other NATO countries.
      Punching ability; penetrate rolled homogeneous armor, 31 mm thick when impacted at an angle of 60 ° at a distance of 2 km.
      What BTR -4 MV armor is more than 31 mm?
      Whereas he kept within the weight of 17,5 to 22 tons.

            It is precisely because of wrong tactics that people died on mines in Afghanistan and Chechnya. What was difficult to develop MPAPs? (they were already in South Africa then) But MRAP does not need such a set of weapons. The APC goes behind the infantry, and the BMP is next to it in the line or slightly ahead. They are intended for conventional combat, not for "guerrilla" wars.

        I heard in the news the opinion of one military man on the BTR-90, saying that he weighs more than the BMP-3, and the armament and armor are worse and more expensive. A speed of 100 km / h is needed in isolated cases.

          You can not even doubt it. A machine with the formula 8 * 8 with a weight of 20+ tons is already practically inapplicable, and we must switch to the tracks, especially since the tracks give in addition to the cross-country ability a lot of profit.

            well, don't be so categorical. even with a mass of 24 tons, each axle (on average) has 6 tons, which is far from critical for wheeled vehicles. yes, the cross-country ability is lower in comparison with tracked vehicles of this class (but again, not so much that "everything is lost"). but the cost of production and OPERATION (not to mention the resource) will not be in favor of the tracked chassis. I am not an ardent supporter of any one type of chassis. just understand - each combat unit has its own niche in the weapons system ... request

        Please note that we have begun production and have already produced hundreds of cars, and even full of modernized ones. In Ukraine, the release is zero and this craft will remain at the prototype level, in order to end up as a museum expat in Kubinka at best, when the "square" itself will be finally liquidated.

        25 mm for 2 km penetrates 31 armor? Willingly believe. And the M242 is such misery that it can be considered as a weapon.

        And to pull out an 8-kg undermining in a fuel cell without a v-shaped bottom is fantastic.


        Yes, this bottom does not give a damn.

          You’re ironic in vain, it's all about shells. 2A42 with Erlikonovskoy BPS RMS303 penetrates 38mm / 60grad. with 2 km and this is not the limit there are more annoying shells, I don’t remember exactly on the courage in the topic about tank ammunition if you are interested. So the 2a42 gun is excellent, but our shells are frankly outdated.

        Good afternoon. Not in the context of this news, I still want to note that the v-shaped bottom is not the only way to provide mine protection, but one of the options. Yes, it is common because it is effective and low cost, both in terms of materials (cost and complexity of manufacture) and in terms of weight. However, it is not always applicable, for example, on a tracked BTT it is completely problematic to apply it fully.

        Perhaps this will surprise you, but many cars of this class are similar to each other ... apparently the TTZ for the development of such equipment are similar. so they come to similar solutions. for something more radical, as always, there are not enough funds or "does not correspond to the accepted doctrine" ...

    In addition, according to a certain level of mine protection, the BTR-4MV has a 3rd level of ballistic protection according to NATO standards, that is, it is able to withstand a mine explosion with a capacity of about 8 kilograms of TNT.

    What can I say - well done designers, work.
    More precisely, not so - well done, that the first to understand that the "original" path (I mean the landing of the landing is not clear where) ended without leading anywhere.
    We realized a few years faster than ours ourselves, and not under the pressure of our military, like ours.

    Of course not a breakthrough, but a solid one, apparently not the most expensive armored personnel carrier.
    Perhaps due to the price it will be able to squeeze somewhere Patria, Pirana.
    BTR-8X will be removed from most markets exactly (which is apparently designed for).

    Level 5 STANAG - this is visible when booking to the maximum, the standard is most likely 4.
    Mine - 3? I do not believe, most likely 2.

And with him there are no such problems as with the "Sapsan" - here the solution is unequivocal: there will be a corvette! The armored personnel carrier will be finished for some time, since it is still raw, but they will just buy it (unlike the BTR-4E), because the car turned out to be successful.

With regards to the striker, he’s good, but having a number of minuses the most basic one is that the chassis for his car of such a weight is weak and is not designed for its high modernization potential, and its combat module is not stable so that it will not be able to conduct normal combat on the go, and it even makes 82nd.

              Okay, here personally, what I do not like about your armored personnel carrier. Firstly, the combat module, secondly, the reservation and, most importantly, the lack of a wedge-shaped, preferably double bottom, electronics and workmanship. The photo on the previous post clickably look how the Turkish batter got out and how your is made. By the way, to criticize my own for the same criticism, the complete lack of at least an elementary culture of production that you have with us. Therefore, this your armored personnel carrier 4 looks like it was made in a garage or in the 70-80s of the last century. Yes, I forgot to add and does it have an automated fire extinguishing system or is it just as deaf as with mine protection?

                  So and I think the same thing, his only advantage is that the market will be one of the cheapest armored personnel carriers. IMHO want to move on and do better modernize the plant. Buy machine tools with foreign suppliers. You will establish production chains without this, and you will stagnate in one place. By the way, the kurganmash went exactly the same way with pasta and franchises. It establishes cooperation on armor and tries to work with the Germans with the Germans, and re-equips the equipment. In short, at the moment, for the whole post of the USSR this is the surest way.

                I agree about the assembly culture - we can’t take it away from us - because it is not there. You can argue with everything else. I already wrote above the BTR-4 withstands the TM-57. This is an army armored personnel carrier, not for fighting the Kurds. Regarding the fire extinguishing system - there is a photo of carbon dioxide cylinders connected to this system. And the armor is completely different. - even with BTR-4 (3E). It is not homogeneous, but multi-layered. It holds a 12,7 / 13,2 mm bullet on board (it was fired even with Hotchkiss). A 25 mm shell can and is holding forehead - I don’t know. BTR-4 withstood the hit of a 14,5 mm bullet. But this is all garbage. The number of hits on the area is important here. 7,62 from the Minigun is sometimes worse for armor than 14,5 from KPVT. In addition, Ukraine issues ceramic armor as an additional reservation - it is also visible on the Turk.
                And what does not like the module? The size?

      By the way, the Ukrainian "Oplot - m" in the Thai tender for easily and not forcedly bypassed the Raseyanets T-90

      And already after deliveries of armored personnel carriers and tanks to Thailand, the Ukrainian KrAZ won a tender for the supply of army trucks for the Thai army.

      In addition, Cambodia bought 100 Ukrainian BTR-3E1, signed a contract for the supply of BTR-4 to Kazakhstan with further production under license, in the process of signing a contract for the supply of BTR-4 to Macedonia.

      Meanwhile, Raska continues to buy Italian Iveco armored personnel carriers

        I have some suspicions that this is simply an abuse of the fact that 2,5 anonymous names are known in Thai in the CIS, so what did this beginner say to HZ, and to disgrace himself if he doesn’t also become a UG machine, he coordinated the deliveries himself. And do not run into the T-90, it will have a more solid list of users.

          Due to one or two contracts - deliveries to Indians and Indonesians more than 15 years ago, when it was not that Oplot-M was not. The T-84 has not yet been manufactured.

          And I don’t "run over" on the T-90, I am simply stating a fact - the T-90 lost in the tender to the "Oplot - m" tank. This, my friend, is a fact.

                  Depending on what share of participation Turkey will offer, well, the question of financing.
                  Again, if repairs and maintenance will be carried out at the Azerbaijani facilities, then the Turkish version looks more promising.
                  Although it is possible that they will wait for the appearance of "Armata", it is unlikely, of course, but you never know.

                      Actually, according to the terms of use, the Merkava is just right for Azerbaijan and Georgia. But I don’t think they’ll buy it. In case of anything, Israel will bend in front of Russia (anything, just don’t sell missiles to Hezbollah) and tear off, or prolong the contract . We need a reliable manufacturer who will be able to "toughly" respond to collisions under the contract.

    And our Ukrainian T-34 is also a PR? And you should know that the Outskirts is Russia, and we Ukraine is the historical name of our places. The name Kievan Rus arose in St. Petersburg in the 18th century at a meeting of historians in order to remove the desired Ukraine.

      The T-34 is not outskirts, but Soviet. The term "Ukraine" is nothing more than a polished "outskirts", it is obvious that there were plenty of such outskirts, and the very territory of modern Ukraine for Kievan Rus could not be an outskirts. That is, "Ukraine" is not even a place name, it is just the outskirts of Russia, this particular one, which was under Polish occupation for several centuries. And there were many different Rus, in different periods other large principalities could also claim the role of the center. Yes, and so on. Ukraine has always been called Little Russia. It was only in the 18th century, after Poland was sent to the dustbin of history, from where it essentially did not crawl out, the question of many Rus was finally removed after the return of the last occupied territories with an Orthodox Russian population.

    Ukraine has occupied its niche in the global defense industry, namely the modernization of all obsolete armored vehicles purchased from the USSR. For such products, there are many buyers who do not have funds for new equipment. Only thanks to this, the military-industrial complex of Ukraine survives. The right approach.

    Please note that we have started production and hundreds of cars have already been produced,


    Release of what cars ?? If you think that having put a new combat module and air conditioner at 80 ku, painted the T-90 in a different color and shoved the same air conditioner in there, did you create a new machine ?? you are deeply mistaken.

    Yes, Ukraine does not produce a lot of new equipment because there is no buyer for it, it is more profitable to produce capital of old equipment, which we have in bulk.

    from 2005 to 2011, Ukraine repaired, modernized and sold over the hill
    - 618 tanks (42 to Azerbaijan, 21 to Algeria, 91 to Georgia, 120 to the Democratic Republic of the Congo, 2 to the USA, 100 to Kenya, 160 to Sudan, 72 to Ethiopia)

    - 776 armored personnel carriers, infantry fighting vehicles, MTLB, BRDM and so on. (73 - to Georgia, 12 - to Uganda, 2 - Kazakhstan, 20 - to Congo, 40 - to Nigeria, 214 - to Iraq, 166 - to Azerbaijan, 26 - to Myanmar, 11 to the United States, 134 to Chad, 38 to Thailand, 36 to Sudan, 4 to Ethiopia)

    - in 2009, 272 trucks were exported both independently and as platforms for various systems exported by Ukraine (including radar)

    Upgraded for the needs of their Armed Forces
    - 76 T-64B to the level of T-64BM "Bulat"

    - in 2009, the state-owned enterprise “Malyshev Plant” delivered 62 units of motor-transmission compartments. In addition, the same company received orders from Pakistan for the export of spare parts for special equipment, the total amount of which exceeded $ 2,5 million.

    - Ukraine has signed a contract for the supply of 110 power plants for tanks to Pakistan. The contract value is estimated to exceed $ 50 million.

    - In 2011, Ukraine signed a contract for the supply of 200 modernized T-72 tanks to Ethiopia, the contract amount is $ 100 million.

    - In September 2011, Ukraine signed a contract for the supply of 49 Oplot tanks to Thailand. The contract value is estimated at $ 240 million.

    - a contract signed between Ukraine and Iraq, for the supply of 400 armored vehicles, the cost of which is estimated at more than 550 million dollars, 88 vehicles delivered.

    - In 2009, an agreement was concluded on the modernization of 200 OT-62 Topaz (tracked armored personnel carriers that are analogous to the Czech-Polish BTR-50)

    - In 2011, a contract was signed between Ukraine and India for the export of a trial batch of ZTD-2 engines for armored personnel carriers.

    - An agreement was signed between Ukraine and Kazakhstan on the production of 100 armored personnel carriers of Ukrainian design

    This is just a list of some contracts for armored vehicles. And what has been done with you ????

            At present, AI-222-25 engines for the Yak-130 aircraft produce Salute.

            Development of AI-222 Zaporizhzhya ICD "Progress" them. A. G. Ivchenko began in 1999 on the basis of the AI-22 engine, GSI completed in 2008.
            AI-22 was developed by order of the Republic of Tatarstan for the Tu-324 aircraft, created in accordance with the Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation No. 208 of February 28, 1996 on the creation and serial production of the Tu-324 aircraft with AI-22 engines, commissioned by the aircraft building company OJSC "TUPOLEV." Its joint development began in the late 1990s ZMKB "Progress", OJSC "Motor Sich" and specialists from KAPO named after S. P. Gorbunov. The engine is developed on the basis of the DV-2 engine serial generator.

            On September 26, 2000, the Progress ZMKB made its first successful launch. Currently, bench tests are also taking place there.

          You still tell me about the stronghold here as the best tank.
          The examples given and the reluctance to discuss is one lie. For example, Skif is a Belarusian-Ukrainian project, KAZ "Zaslon" is a development of KAZ "Dozhd", which was developed in the USSR in the 1970s by St. Petersburg "VNIITransmash" and so on.

We just don’t need ICBMs. And in terms of the number of civilian launch vehicles launched, Ukraine is in the top five countries. That's it.

            KAZ developments were carried out in many countries.
            And to the Soviet "Dozhd" and "Drozd" not a single Ukrainian design bureau HAD access to.
            After the collapse of the USSR ALL TECHNICAL DOCUMENTATION REMAINED IN RUSSIA.

            The development of "Zaslon" began from "0", when Russia refused to supply Ukraine with the Arena KAZ for the T-84 put up for a Turkish tender.
            It was then that the Ukrainian engineers began to develop their own KAZ. P The result is "Barrier". When developing it, all the shortcomings of "Drozd" and "Arena" were taken into account. The result is one of the best KAZ in the world. Several steps superior to the Russian KAZ. Moreover, unlike the Russian KAZ, the Ukrainian "Zaslon" in a couple of tens of minutes, in the field, can be easily mounted ON ANY kind of armor and automotive equipment.

      to sell Soviet property acquired by dishonest labor is not a tricky business; you better tell me how many helicopters and planes are adopted for the armament of Ukraine for 22 years of independence, answer? not a single one, by the way, KAMAZ annually supplies from 4000 to 5000 vehicles for export, and your last little KRAZ last year cannot reach the overall 4 year.

                No one is hysterical. We are glad that at least your troops are receiving new equipment. just tired of phrases like "the Ukrainian military-industrial complex died, collapsed, etc." Yes, we are going through hard times, the personnel of the factories at the pre-retirement age, young people do not go to the factory to work, they chronically have no money, but to say that the military-industrial complex died is not true, a relative works at a tank repair plant says that their work for 10 years ahead of contracts has accumulated a drain that is simple physically they cannot fulfill them (eternal greed). In the army, well, you just don't need so much equipment, our equipment has worked well 60% of its resource, why change it to a new one? It is simply not economically profitable that they do not do it in any country. Not much money is allocated for the modernization, but since we are not going to fight with anyone, then the equipment that is redundant.
                And you can get a good hand at modernizing old equipment. You look at how many different options we have for modernizing various equipment, but each enterprise independently makes them in order to attract customers there are interesting and unsuccessful ones.
                And I would ask YOU not to insult my feelings as a citizen of Ukraine, because I do not insult YOU and will not humiliate YOUR dignity and YOUR country

            May I fit in. We compared X ... with a finger. In Russia, the main advantage was that during the Soviet era, everyone bought "Russian weapons" over the hill. My dad, when he served in the YUGV, for the Magyars, we were all Russians (both Georgians and Greeks). Therefore, naturally, when Ukraine entered the export markets for weapons, it was simply faced with a misunderstanding - what is "Ukrainian weapon". That is why many branches of the military-industrial complex have turned down. To reassure you (your bravado) I will say that one of the most important exporters of the Ukrainian military-industrial complex is Russia. In the space industry - 2nd place. The USA became the main buyer of the Ukrainian product that year.

        It is strange to read such messages - you are bad, we are good, and we are better. Yes, let it be better for you, if only we bought ours and people were at work. We did not take the Soviet dishonest work - this is ours, which we created, including in Russia: both Magadan and Tyumen. And they built Kamaz together, so do you have to burn it or take it apart in order to remove the concept of your strange honor? Great Russian chauvinism has long overshadowed fascism. What do the people of Ukraine need to do so that you roll away from us. We have forgiven the occupation, the famine of 32-33, collectivization, and much more, but you still have no desire, everyone wants to make us happy. To begin with, make yourself happy, having gigantic reserves of gas, oil, forests, etc. You live in poverty compared to Europe and boast that you have more helicopters. And in the UAE, I think, there are much fewer helicopters, and wealth too, but they all live perfectly. As for Ukraine, I think it definitely does not need new helicopters, we are not going to fight with you or with Europe. But for the sale, even to Russia, our defense industry must work. After all, once our Ukrainian T-34 tank was the best in the world.

      At least don’t remind about Iraq, it’s time for the Outskirts to pay for delay and marriage.

      The installation of the combat module is just a VERY big upgrade, because it is a new electronics. That is, something that has just advanced greatly since the 1980s. The difference between the BTR-80 and the BTR-82A is very noticeable, without serious weight gain. At the same time, doing in the same class a new armored personnel carrier occupation of very non-obvious expediency, because of fur. parts and the protection of much progress will not be if you do not switch to heavier machines.

      Selling old Soviet trash is yes, a great achievement.
      Regarding the BTR-3, the total volume of export deliveries judging by pedagogy is only 300+ cars in 10+ years. Outskirts themselves do not have them.

      It has long been no secret that Azerbaijan is cooperating with the Ukrainian enterprise "Scientific and Production Complex" Iskra "- a leading developer and manufacturer of ground-based radar equipment for the defense complex of Ukraine. And now there is information that the military leadership of Azerbadzhan was interested in finalizing the 80K6 circular view radar with the participation of representatives of Technosoyuzproekt LLC and Spetstechnoexport DGZP.
      At the beginning of 2007, a new development of Zaporozhye specialists, a three-coordinate 80K6 circular radar based on a digital multipath antenna array, was adopted by the Ukrainian forces.

      The radar provides detection, tracking and measurement of the three coordinates of air objects and their radial velocity at a distance of 400 km. The elevation angle is 35 degrees per antenna revolution (5 or 10 seconds). The station also has a high level of noise protection.

      According to expert estimates, the characteristics of the 80K6 radar can be claimed not only by Iskra's long-term partners, but it is also possible to use the new design in the interests of NATO.

      This radar was of interest to Azerbaijan, for which a new version of the PLC 80K6M based on the Belarusian MZKT chassis was proposed.

      The 80K6М mobile radar is intended for use as part of the radio engineering and air defense missile units of the Air Defense Forces, providing target designation to the air defense missile forces, and must provide:

      • detection, tracking and measurement of three coordinates of air objects and their ground speed;
      • determination of the nationality of air facilities;
      • determination of elevation and azimuth bearings for active jammers;
      • delivery of information to radar workplaces and associated systems.

      According to reports from the official website of the manufacturer, it became known about the start of the implementation of the purchase of this type of radar:

      1 to 3 September 2011g. A delegation of representatives of Tehnosoyuzproekt LLC, the Republic of Belarus, and the Ministry of Defense of the Republic of Azerbaijan, accompanied by representatives of the Spetstechnoexport State Enterprise, worked at the enterprise.

      During their stay at the enterprise, delegations were presented a presentation of the company's products, the 80K6 and 80К6М products, a demonstration of real work on the position of the 80К6 product with air targets, a demonstration of remote work on the 19Ж6М test site with a built-in MK-XA system requester.

      Belarusian and Azerbaijani specialists received all the necessary information regarding the execution of the order, and expressed satisfaction with the results of the visit, about which a corresponding protocol was drawn up.

    I apologize for copy-paste:

    It should be noted that no information has yet been received about receiving another letter of credit from Iraq for the equipment received in October 2012. Until the end of the 2012, it was planned to supply Iraq with a third batch of BTR-4 consisting of 94 units. However, this did not happen and the machines of this batch are still under construction. Moreover, according to Ukrainian sources, in the fall of 2012, the Iraqi Ministry of Defense, referring to the expiration of the 2009 contract and memoranda thereto, initiated negotiations with South Korea and Russia on the possibility of supplying similar equipment.

    The prospects of the BTR-4 in the Armed Forces of Ukraine (APU) remain unclear. The decision to purchase 10 armored personnel carriers in the export configuration of the BTR-4Е and to formally adopt this vehicle for the armed forces of the Armed Forces was frankly political in nature and should mainly help to promote this vehicle abroad as allegedly operated in the country of origin. At the same time, although the supply of 10 of the indicated BTR-4Е to the Armed Forces was supposed to be carried out already in 2012, it has not yet been made.

    The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine has long criticized the design of the "basic" BTR-4, demanding its significant processing. This was to be done as part of the BTR-4M project. Only in January 2013, in Kharkov, a prototype of the BTR-4MV machine was manufactured according to this project, and in order to reduce the cost of production, it was redone from the BTR-4V prototype (a version of the BTR-4 with a Deutz engine, which had previously unsuccessfully moved to Macedonia). The alteration essentially consisted of replacing the bow assembly of the armored hull on the indicated prototype with a new one "without windows" and installing a stern ramp. At the same time, many other requirements of the Ukrainian military department were not met (including mine protection). The position of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine in relation to the BTR-4M continues to be uncertain. It is significant that the MOU has not yet decided on the type of engine for the BTR-4M, considering only that it should be Western, and not installed on the BTR-4 supplied to Iraq by the Kharkov 3TD diesel engine.

    In view of the obvious shortcomings of the BTR-4, the State Enterprise "Kharkiv Design Bureau for Mechanical Engineering named after AA Morozov" and "Plant named after V.A. Malyshev ”have now begun implementing projects to create two new types of wheeled armored personnel carriers - BTR-5 and BTR-9. According to known data, the BTR-5 is a frank imitation of the promising "medium" BTR ("medium wheeled platform") created in Russia by "Military Industrial Company" LLC for the "Boomerang" design and development project, practically repeating the layout and appearance of the latter Armored personnel carrier). The BTR-5 will have enhanced mine protection. Thus, the Ukrainian armored personnel carrier will try to make up for the time lost in the creation and attempts to "improve" the unsuccessful and archaic in a number of design solutions BTR-4.

      Former Ministry of Defense Salamatin D. just helped to develop a new version of the BTR-4, as he did not quite meet the requirements of the Ministry of Defense of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. As a result, the BTR-4MV turned out - they planned to buy it. And the previous version (with large windows and doors) is good exclusively for the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the special forces of the SBU.

    Instead of a door with a vertical middle jumper installed on the BTR-4E,
    a special ramp is provided here, which descends over the entire width of the landing compartment

    Promising developments are promising developments. And Russia is conducting them, and Ukraine. Time will tell which platform will be more successful. And the BTR-4 is not wasted time, it is a transitional model, a practice. And this is eternal quarrels, humiliation, slander, etc. I'm pretty tired. But what is interesting is that it is mainly unknowing people who quarrel - "A friend told," "A neighbor saw", "They told on TV," etc. One gets the impression that give such a weapon, without hesitation, he will go to kill "independent ukrov".

    for Ukrainian members of the forum, dominus, grand piano, etc., bringing digital figures of the mighty Ukrainian intellect, I inform enemy information
    According to American data
    It is interesting to estimate Ukrainian military exports based on the information of the US Congressional Research Service, which published on August 24 a new annual analytical report on the supply of conventional weapons to developing countries (Conventional Arms Transfers to Developing Nations, 2004–2011). This document is an official unclassified analytical database for American lawmakers based on information from the United States Government on the transfer of military products to the third world by leading exporters of military products for the past eight-year period (in this case, from 2004 to 2011). The developing countries category includes all the states of the planet except the USA, Russia, EU members, Canada, Japan, Australia and New Zealand, and the regional arms markets under consideration include Asia, the Middle East, Latin America and Africa.
    The report also provides information on export-import operations with military products worldwide. Familiarity with such analytical materials allows (although with certain errors due to varying degrees of transparency of the information used) to position a country (or group of countries) both in the global arms market as a whole and in its individual regional segments, to determine trends, emerging in world trade in military products.
    From the report it follows that Ukraine is still among the ten largest world exporters of military products. In particular, in terms of the volume of agreements on the supply of arms to developing countries, Ukraine closed this top ten ($ 1,6 billion) in 2004-2007, and in the last four-year cycle (2008-2011) shared the seventh and eighth places with Israel (4 each). billion dollars). In terms of this indicator, the following states have been ahead of it in the last four years: the USA (112,987 billion dollars), Russia (31,1 billion dollars), France (17,3 billion dollars), China (8,1 billion dollars), Italy ($ 5,8 billion) and Germany ($ 5,2 billion).
    If we consider the entire last eight-year period, then Ukraine is in 9th place ($ 5,6 billion). Outstripping it is the United States ($ 145,216 billion), Russia ($ 72,5 billion), France ($ 25,7 billion), the United Kingdom ($ 23,2 billion), China ($ 16,3 billion), Germany (10,2 billion dollars), Israel (8,7 billion dollars), Italy (8,2 billion dollars)
    Read more: http://vpk-news.ru/articles/12643

    From these data it can be concluded that Russia's military exports are 8-12 times more than Ukraine's military exports, and the population is 3 times more. Further write or literate themselves?

      And who argues that Russia sells weapons more than Ukraine?
      Here the topic is about BTR4. It’s better than its Russian counterparts, or worse, that’s not the point.
      And the point is that in Ukraine, despite the "efforts" of the authorities, they continue to create military equipment.

            And what are you doing, Ukrainian intellectuals, and what goals do you pursue without noticing the initial attack of the piano?

              I didn’t drink at the burdershaft (God forbid), so let's get to you.
              And the fact that you are citizens of Ukraine, contemptuously call "ukrami" I see not the first month.
              I do not pursue any goals (detectives read less), I'm here for communication.

                Conpatus,
                but I don’t pay any attention to members of the forum with Ukrainian flags, except for the chevron, the moderator complained to me - I had to remember the bumpkin.
                You accused me of initial rudeness, and I answered the attack of the Ukrainian grand piano, it is easy to prove by reading the branch. You are a hypocrite, although for people like you this is hardly an insult.

    And this suggests to me that Ukraine, after the well-known years of devastation, is 5,6 billion, and Germany has been flourishing in recent decades, 10,2 billion. And do you think this is a bad result for Ukraine? And I believe that people still work, perhaps contrary to the leadership of their country.

      This is perhaps the first positive review in the direction of the armored personnel carrier. Yes, Ukraine is very difficult, we do not have large natural reserves, and the country's leadership is not very, and the neighbor who writes himself abusive on paper is not at all like that, and despite all the difficulties, something worthy of competition is being created in our country

      That's when he will be in the army, then it makes sense to talk about his exploitation. So far, our landing parties only got to know the BTR-3E1 closely (and these were Thai vehicles that had not been sent there yet).

    Of course, Ukrainians are great, so many new samples are being issued. But here's the problem. All these samples are a deep modernization of the Soviet armored personnel carrier. These machines are outdated and will not play a role there. The only plus of this machine is its price!

      The fact is that a huge number of Soviet armored personnel carriers are scattered around the world. And does any equipment tend to grow old ... and what do the countries in the armed forces of which this equipment is located lay out a bunch of dough by buying new equipment? And at the same time spend a lot of money on creating rem. bases for this equipment, purchase of spare parts, retraining of personnel to service it? Or buy upgraded (well-known) armored personnel carriers? In my opinion, the answer is obvious ... therefore, the demand for Ukrainian armored vehicles will be provided for a long time. ((True, you also need to be able to sell ... but this is from another opera.

        We do not have oil, gas and we are trying to get profit from all junk.
        Unlike Russia, where old tanks are simply sent for re-melting, receiving from this 4-5 thousand dollars (we have a ton of iron cost 100 bucks), we capitalize, upgrade and sell old equipment (countries that cannot pay 7-8 million each). dollars.) tank at a price of 1-2 million dollars. apiece, + jobs, well, tell me who has more bread then ???

          Royal, no one here forces anyone to make excuses, most people are literate, able to analyze information themselves. It is clear that the military-industrial complex of Russia and Ukraine have different niches, the competition points for Ukraine from Russia are significant, on the contrary, there are none. They just discuss the armored car, not the fat and do not compare the level of technical thought of Ukrainians and Russians.
          Why start about the fact that Ukrainians are wiser than Russians, when everything is already visible.
          The French call it wit on the stairs, the Russians wave their fists after the fight. Ukraine has profiled at one time - this concerns the Ukrainian state-political establishment, and not the common people (otherwise they accuse me of Ukrainian hatred). Denial of this is an ostrich position.

            you don’t need to go from bad to bad. You know very well that Ukraine did not separate. I recall that it was thanks to the signatures of B. Yeltsin, S. Shushkevich and L. Kravchuk de facto and de jure that served as the basis for the collapse of the USSR.

    I’m wondering when such cars will actually be delivered to the troops, and not go to exhibitions? (First you need to do the first, and then the second).
    As for the base - wheeled or tracked - so for the Ukrainian, mostly flat, landscapes it is quite suitable (but I don’t presume to say how it will be in the desert), and buoyancy is never superfluous (especially near the Danube;))

    Iraq refused to supply BTR-4E due to shortcomings, but they have already been made. And since the poor fellow is a banal cut of money, something must be done somewhere. Unscrewed - shoved into service with the own Armed Forces of Ukraine. + The parameters with the declared did not stand near.
