Russian military armed with "Scorpions"The Russian Ministry of Defense completed state tests of special army vehicles of the Scorpion family. On this, according to Interfax, said Alexander Shor, CEO of the corporation "Protection", producing machines. According to him, the military department recommended the Scorpions for adoption. Machines can be adopted after the passage of the interdepartmental commission.


Army vehicles "Scorpion LSHA-1" with an open top, "Scorpion LSHA-2" with a hard metal top and an armored vehicle "Scorpion LSHA-2B" took part in state tests. State tests of machines were conducted from 1 November 2012 of the year to 30 of September 2013. According to the Ministry of Defense of Russia, tested cars meet the requirements in terms of technical specifications, and in terms of mine protection and resistance to incendiary mixtures have exceeded the requirements by three times.

At the end of September 2013, it was reported that the Russian Ministry of Defense intends to acquire in 2014 a pilot batch of transport vehicles Scorpion-2М. According to Shor, the order for experienced cars will be several dozen for each of the series that have passed state tests. Preliminary operation of the purchased cars will be carried out within the next year.

Scorpion vehicles are designed for the transportation of military personnel and goods on various types of roads and off-road. Up to eight people can fit inside the car. The vehicles can be equipped with a combat module produced by the Kovrov plant named after Degtyarev. The Scorpion is equipped with a horsepower 116 diesel engine and is capable of speeds up to 130 kilometers per hour.

    The tests involved open-top Scorpion LSHA-1, Scorpion LSHA-2 cars with a hard metal top and the Scorpion LSHA-2B armored vehicle, and they will buy the Scorpion-2M. Somehow does not fit.

      Everything fits, the letter "M" in the Russian army has always meant - modernized. Prototypes of various modifications have passed the tests. Surely, according to the results of the tests, a bunch of flaws and comments were revealed that will be eliminated and the car will already be called 2M.

    Well, here it is a replacement for the "well-deserved" UAZ, but the main thing is that he is not alone and now there is plenty to choose from. Now the main thing is that the people who make decisions turn out to be "statesmen" and not "effective managers" - "birds of Serdyukov's nest"

      "Scrpion" is not a substitute for the UAZ, the replacement for it is the UAZ "Patriot" and even with all this, the UAZ ("Hunter") is in the Russian reserve.

        Such a lousy replacement, "Patriot" definitely loses to the old family in terms of simplicity in operation and repair. An injection engine versus a carburetor in harsh conditions is generally boring.

          Not long ago I went to UAZ (Bukhanka) for fishing, 300 km one way.
          I immediately remembered the army comfort, how did we drive these cars?
          More than 100 is not possible to ride, wears all the way.
          And on the road, of course, just fine.
          A ford depth of 90cm with a little preparation was also overcome.

            I agree, but our bosses are a little against it. Do you know what the UAZs are changing for? Volkswagen Caravel! We have at least 1 of them in almost every part of the city! And this is a government order, and not someone's personal whim ...

    it is unclear why such a variety of machines for the army, maintenance and repair is still easier when there are fewer machines and they are unified

      The UAZ was a one-light vehicle, and these are heavier as it were, in class, can be equipped with light weapons, and just transport infantry, and there are protected (lightly armored) ones.

      Here, it’s more likely that the matter is on a competitive basis of procurement, who will submit a sample for more interesting competition, for price and quality of the product, he will go to the series and win the tender.

      Cars can be taken into service after passing the interagency commission.

      well, it's still a pitchfork on the water ...
      each director of a car workshop declares that there is no alternative to his "UAZ" in the world ...)))

    Finally, normal vehicles will enter the troops, capable of not only carrying personnel, but also carrying weapons. It is high time to change the UAZ, which faithfully served our army for several decades.

    There is already a Tiger and a Wolf, a lot of other equipment. Unification and standardization is recognized everywhere as one of the fundamental rules for successful warfare. In addition, they correctly speak about the complexity of servicing different brands and systems. I myself have experience in the operation of rolling stock and I can say with full responsibility that this is another stupidity of our generals. Someone may be pushing (lobbying) the interests of the Zashchita Corporation. I watched videos with these machines. It goes without saying - good systems, but again everything depends on the cost of maintenance. Each car has its own characteristics and its own spare parts. All this must be stored somewhere and paid for the training of personnel of new equipment. But the main thing is that there are good cars, but there is nothing fundamentally new and why fence a garden. request

    The Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Airborne Forces purchases from GAZ, the army from an incomprehensible corporation. Everything is like in America, the marines have their own, the army has its own. A lobbyist's dream.

    The engine, if you noticed a diesel one, but otherwise not very far from the UAZ. Still, it was a chic device: remember at least the rally to Magadan, all the imported "parquet floor" died, and the UAZs reached. It's good that they are taking their own.
