Front Car Transport (TMPK) "Mul"

41
TMPK “Mul” was created by the enterprise “Minotor-Service” on its own initiative on the basis of studying the experience of combat operations of land forces in local conflicts. The machine is designed for the delivery of ammunition, fuel and other material and technical means to the positions of troops of the first echelon.


Front Car Transport (TMPK) "Mul"


TMPK “Mul” is capable of transporting at the same time 3 company stock of ammunition at the rate of one ammunition per unit of weapons.

        that's for sure, I don’t understand why they don’t make a ramp
        load - you can quickly unload on pallets

      Do you need something, but this one? .... MTLBU is a very large "barn", the target is also TA ... And the way of loading - unloading through such a hatch ??? Maybe a ramp is better and install a means of mechanization on the car so that the "load" very quickly "dump" in the place where it is necessary and leave the firing zone ...

            IS-80 in the Great Patriotic War, ammunition was brought up on horse-drawn carts, and it wasn’t in the head of a cart to arm the cart.

            But when they (dybily) thought of a position with a cart to appear here then they flew from the fathers of the commanders. (and rightly so, because the position is unmasked to unmask).

            More than half a century has passed, there is the Internet and there are no problems with access to information, but transport vehicle "Mule" - See armored no less than Mouse.

            see for example.

    The car is clearly needed. Made on the basis of MTLBU, this machine can become a "lifesaver" for the unit. From my own experience I know that the car is very unpretentious, reliable and versatile. We have such a tractor in the battery that it just didn’t do it - and started everyone from the pusher, and pulled out of any mud, and carried loads ... Reservations are certainly weak, but still this is not a tilt truck.

        And you try to carry out an operation to deliver ammunition, for example, to the company's ammunition point, by the way the smallest one is a tank ... Tank shells and charges, through the hatch, one at a time, ammunition boxes, "Clouds" grenades ... yes to its unloading will have to spend half an hour, at least ... and there are more than one or two such flights ... No, everything must be done so that such a machine can unload ammunition itself, by means of its own mechanization, and for this it is necessary, so that these ammunition would be loaded into her "womb" in containers ...

    Yeah, here and ride this mule at minus 30 with a tented top. I know one person who has the same MTBL, only the annexe at the back is armored and with normal heating, etc. Those. for rich people, creating a technique is not a problem, but in the army this barn, in which you freeze everything yourself in winter.

    In summer, without a tent, a mass grave is generally thrown from a shelter into a body grenade and tryndets there everyone.

    Although the unit itself is good, quite quiet for the goose, passable, the truth is not a very good swimmer, well, these are trifles.

      It seems to me that nothing. The company is engaged in overhaul of armored vehicles.
      Captured MTLBu (at best), painted with fresh paint - voila, get a new development. In general, the Belarusians decided to cut a piece of the Russian defense budget.
      P.S. MTLB car is good, I remember riding a boom of the 10s.

    Ashamed brothers are ashamed. Well, how long it is already possible to "modernize" this frank old stuff from 1964 in the army. They have sunk, well, they cannot give birth to anything new, no matter how hard they try. Put at least a more powerful engine on the same base (and not YaMZ 238), add a box of filling, a little reservation and it will be just gorgeous. The moral and psychological stability of the crew generally killed on the spot.

    alexmaneger - I don’t know about the account. AK with deep modernization is still in service and it has prospects. And at the expense of "Mule", to accelerate unloading, it may be better not a winch, but a rising bottom to the level of armor. If the truck is so practically no load, but from top to bottom in my opinion it is always easier. than from bottom to top I do not recommend this, but simply from personal experience.

      The width of the tracks is normal, it will not get stuck in the mud. But booking MT-LBU, there is no cardboard and mine protection.
      For self-propelled guns, full-fledged loading vehicles are needed, and for delivering ammunition to the front edge, armored vehicles based on MBT, with DZ, KAZ, otherwise they will burn it.

    I sit - I read the comments and I understand that amateurs are on the site !!!! Dark! Someone is trying to freeze their own ass - and it's not destiny to look at the photo? And the photo shows that the transport compartment is separated from the partition control compartment. The engine on this device is just a song, in the mountains on a dry engine we drove about 20 km, the potdon was replaced in the park, oil was poured and tail number 041 ran until ..... withdrawal from the region. And how many were left without water (the cars were just old - and the supply was out of hand.) !! Box of course sometimes let down - but again it was repaired with a bang. And about the front edge - I would like to look at that company commander who will pull his ammunition point to the front! Of course, it is necessary to bring the supply agencies closer to the units - but you also need to use the mind. If you choose what to send from the tank to the URAL or MTPK first echelon companies, then MTPK is probably better. And even the battalion is better supplied through the MTPK. Again, it is better to take out the wounded under armor. But what about unloading work - of course, the apparatus and a small manipulator are better for 300-400 kg (there will be no larger cargo for the battalion, the companies will not be - of course not summarily - but nomenclature), of course, do not argue here - it is VERY necessary. Well, about old developments - is it necessary to fence a garden in the presence of a well-developed and mastered chassis? Of course it is debatable, but in the presence of a large number of MTLB-U, it is a sin not to use it. Of course, hinged booking is needed - but quick-detachable - so as not to lose buoyancy (quality is very important for equipment participating in the war and not in the fight against illegal armed groups)

      Of course it’s not worth fencing for the sake of enclosing the garden and MTLBu is a wonderful car. All that you wrote about its survivability and maintainability I fully share and support. But in the article it is presented as a NEW development, that is the question. Take a look, ordinary MTLBu. They also made a discovery for me. As if before this conveyor was not used for such purposes. request

    For svp67 - you have the front edge conveyor (TPK) on the first photo. Designed for the collection and evacuation of the wounded and killed on the battlefield, transporting them to the places of collection and evacuation. According to the Geneva Convention, the transport of ammunition on vehicles marked with a red cross (red crescent) is prohibited, as well as the opening of fire on such vehicles.

    Yes, the device is good. This is me about the matalyga itself. But what did you do? - unclear. What is the fundamental difference from MT-LB? Did you cut the roof? - the modernization is not great - you can stir up any technical park.

    And about amphibiousness - tin. They tried to force the electronic warfare station to float with a "backpack" (generator) on the detachment of the landing - it flips over immediately. So with a load, at least half, but with an open top, I would have refused to swim in place of the carrier even through a puddle with a depth of 1.5 meters.
    So amphibiousness - for such a transport - is superfluous. It’s easier to put in a pontoon than to underload every time you cross a river.
    In general, the motolyga steers.

      I beg your pardon dear, but you are mistaken about the amphibious nature. MTLBUha perfectly swims with a full load. An electronic warfare station at the top and an empty hull afloat, this is "Tin". Violation of Metacentric Height, etc. All of the above is from personal knowledge. In Kamchatka, these MTL Bukhs from private traders along the coast rush with goods. The load is maximum, plus the link up. And nothing is running and swimming. There are no crossings on the route. The "dviglo" YaMZ 238 turbine (characteristic whistle) is worth a lot. IMHO and not only, the best Russian diesel engine of all time.

    I have not seen any profound modernization of the AK, and the prospect of it is one of the simplest weapons possible, which does not require the basic knowledge it is armed with, it is easier to say weapons with which you can arm a large illiterate army. From your post, I realized that you are familiar with the MTLB from a very, very long distance and reasoning at the level of an ordinary inhabitant (from top to bottom, from bottom to top). And I wrote my comment on the basis of my own experience, like a mechanical drive of a motolyga.

    "In the summer, without an awning at all, a common grave, they will throw a grenade into the back from the shelter and tryndets there for everyone"

    Let me tell you - each piece of iron should correspond to its purpose as much as possible. The younger brother of this vehicle, the MT-LB, was created as a standard tractor for the 100mm PT of the Rapier cannon. And he did an excellent job not only with this task. The entire LenVO used this tractor instead of BMPs and armored personnel carriers because of its cross-country ability. MT-LBU was used as a chassis for mounting a lot of different things, but it did not lose its all-terrain qualities. Now about the purpose of the "Mule" machine - as a substitute for "Ural" (the plant is bankrupt, supplies to the Armed Forces are reduced every year, the quality drops catastrophically), which was created as a "vehicle for the supply of ammunition in the near rear of active units and subunits." Mule ", after the appropriate revision in terms of improving the loading and unloading parameters, is quite suitable, I think. And the F-5 will make a colander both in the tilt Ural and out of the passengers, and the driver with the elder will get it, and in the Mule - the engine behind the driver and the armor outside. In addition, no one suggests using this "truck" instead of the BRDM. So much for the compliance of the product with its purpose.
    I am for the car, but after the specified refinement (it is not as expensive as it seems).

    The Ural’s terrain vehicle wasn’t lying around, and many people know what the roads turn into by hearsay, it’s a plus, and the booking is also sufficient - it holds bullets and fragments, more is not necessary for such equipment. There is no ramp, well, to hell with it, compare the loading height of the Urals and the motorcycle league ...
    This is a front-line vehicle, not an armored personnel carrier or infantry fighting vehicle, complaints about poor bookings are related to the fact that MTLB / MTLBU were not used for their intended purpose. Additional reservation and, as a result, an increase in mass will nullify all the advantages of a motorcycle league.
