The US Marine Corps may roll up the program to acquire a promising military armored vehicle JLTV


The United States Marine Corps (CMP) may wind up the acquisition program for a promising combined-arms light tactical armored combat vehicle (BBM) JLTV (Joint Light Tactical Vehicle) due to sequestration of the military budget. This was reported to journalists by the commander of the CMP, James Amos.

A more efficient and economical BBM JLTV should have replaced the highly mobile multi-purpose wheeled vehicle Humvee or HMMWV (high-mobility multipurpose wheeled vehicle), which has been in service with the 1985 of the year. The Humvee machine was never considered as a BBM, and despite a number of modifications to increase security, it remained vulnerable to homemade explosive devices (IEDs).

According to the commander of the ILC, the continued use of Humvee machines in combat conflicts may lead to an increase in casualties among personnel. However, the ILC does not have the means at present to solve the problem of replacing the Humvee and switching to the BBM JLTV.

As reported earlier by ARMS-TASS, the threat of destruction of the personnel of the Armed Forces of leading foreign countries with improvised explosive devices (IEDs) made it important to increase minefield defenses in the BBM design. In particular, the introduction of a V-shaped armored module into the BBM design is considered very effective. This structural solution has been applied in the program of the American military light tactical vehicle JLTV and in the program of the English light protected patrol vehicle LPPV (Light Protected Patrol Vehicle).

    "Threats of personnel injury" can be avoided by simpler and more effective methods. The decision, gentlemen Yusovyskie generals, does not lie on the surface - don’t go anywhere, and where you were not invited !!!

      Before that comes a v-shaped protects against the detonation of improvised mines. We have the same thing. If you look at, say Turkish cars, they have the whole body v-shaped, which looks stupid. Explosives are undermined under the front wheels.

        depends on the vehicle speed, at a speed of 40 to 50 km / h, as a rule, neatly under the driver or front passenger, although the wheels are pulled out by a blast wave. and if it’s a guided landmine, then in general it’s

    nor otherwise from the "General information field of the earth". It is necessary to inform REN TV that this approach will be extremely interesting to them.

    The Americans did a good deed.
    90% of men in Afghanistan are drug addicts.
    Here is the result.
    Well, who is it true to scare with these "mujekhetdins"?
    If they are constantly breaking.
    Well, they won’t deliver another hunk once to the front - and WHAT ???
    I also have the heroes of my native mountains.
    They run around their villages and scare them with their CLIPPINGS.

    Some kind of exaggerated news! Judging by the latest info, they can get into Syria and establish democracy. At the same time, they will not refuse, but they will also order.
