Terrier, friend of the sapper Combat engineering machine

The British Army adopted the first armored Terrier vehicle, a sapper tank with a remote control.


The medium terrier sapper tank, developed by BAE Systems, claims to be the most advanced vehicle in its class. Terrier is equipped with an electronic digital control system (drive-by-wire) and on-board cameras. “Joystick”, work with which any draftee who has ever dealt with a game controller will quickly master, allows you to control a tank from a distance of up to 1 km.

Terrier is multi-functional and versatile, like a Swiss army knife. Depending on the situation, it can play various roles and perform a wide range of functions: from removing obstacles in the way of units (and creating these obstacles for enemy troops) to demining.

A terrier weighing around 32 tons can be loaded onto an A400M transport aircraft and delivered to its destination. The machine can reach speeds of up to 70 km / h and travel independently up to 600 km.

In total, the British Army will receive 60 Terrier combat engineering vehicles under the current contract with BAE Systems, the last of which will be delivered in January 2014 - five months ahead of the agreed time.

    Yeah. Well done. It’s better to mine or break down obstacles with robots. But is the control radius 1 km not too small?

      Do you think that the bulldozer will travel around the database zone alone?)))))
      A cover is stupid for a bulldozer, so in meters 100 there will be a detachment which will also cover the control point at the same time.

      A very necessary thing. And most likely they can be controlled both remotely and by the crew. How many sappers will survive.

        stole with us
        Robotic complex (RTK) "Alisa" based on the T-72 tank, providing remote telecontrol of the tank at a distance of 2 km, as well as the ability to automatically move along the highway at a speed of up to 20 km / h and cross country at a speed of up to 10 km / h

    This dangerous occupation is rushing at a speed of 70 km / h on rough terrain with such a bucket in front of the car, if it bury itself in the ground, the crew will cripple at best.

    A good apparatus, it is necessary for collective farms, otherwise people in our villages have diminished.

        Yes, there was a deal with the German. The peasants rejected and sent back at the same time with the samples which are needed.

    If the tank is remotely controlled, why the crew in it?
    Or is it from the category of "the tank will be controlled by a gamer, but so that the crew doesn’t get too tight in it" laughing

    Why did you pounce on this car a useful thing in the war to dig something, dig, etc. why is there a remote control got behind the helm and in front of another thing is to complete the task on the area being shot through to clear the way for military equipment go to the remote control. I like!

      Me too.
      The Terrier can carry out a wide range of works, including laying pillar tracks, ensure the advance of troops through destruction zones, digging trenches, anti-tank ditches, create engineering barriers, load and stack fascines, can transport 5 tons of materials, armed with 7,62 "mm machine gun, as well as launchers of smoke grenades to create a smoke curtain, is equipped with an RHB protection system, infrared cameras."

    And even without risk, right before the nose, a blockage is also great. As in the Kursk Bulge - "brazen mining." Only now arrogant blockages.

        The control panel must be made to our Duma. With a pair of buttons: 1) Remove the sound 2) Off.))))

        After breaking through the cumulative charge, the tank becomes a useless piece of metal, while usually only the crew is hit. Yes, and why risk trained people, if you can not do this?
        Although remote control is yesterday, it is high time to develop an autopilot. In the United States, such a system already exists.

          Can you give a link with information about this "autopilot"?

            In September 2012, California authorities legalized the use of autopilot cars.

    YES to them and the trenches and trenches for tanks to dig a sweet deal! And how many sappers will remain alive! This is what good technology means.

    Terrier is as versatile and versatile as a Swiss army knife.

    Comparison with a Swiss army knife is interesting. That is, it can do a lot of things, but badly. soldier

    GOOD ENGINEERING MACHINE MAY NOT HELP ONLY IN MILITARY
    ACTIONS, BUT AND IN NATURAL DISASTERS, EARTHQUAKE.
    ESPECIALLY GOOD THAT THE RADIO CONTROLLED. And HOW MILES WILL BE GLAD.

    Good and necessary car. In the Union there was a whole herd of engineering monsters (BTM, MDK, BAT, UR, IRM, etc.), and all tasks were carried out only by the "arms and legs" of the soldiers.
