Kurganets-25, BMD-4M, BTR-MDM: Tractor Plants are ahead of the curve

32
The Concern Tractor Plants Concern division of the machine-building industrial group is heading ahead of the deadlines for the implementation of long-term government contracts concluded with the Russian Ministry of Defense as part of the National Weapons Program - 2020, which it implements, aimed at the effective development of the Russian Army’s weapons system. This was reported to the Vestnik of Mordovia in the Department of Strategic Communications of the Tractor Plants Concern.


Kurganets-25, BMD-4M, BTR-MDM: Tractor Plants are ahead of the curve

“The purpose of the President of Russia is to bring the share of modern technology in the Armed Forces to 2020% by 70,” said Albert Bakov, first vice president and chairman of the board of directors of Kurganmashzavod, stating the position of Tractor Plants. - Our specialized enterprises, which are drivers of high-tech development of our entire holding, have a specific task to optimize the type of weapons we produce and to create unified interspecific tracked platforms that should become the basis for creating a new generation of military equipment and contributing to the formation of the Russian Armed Forces ".

In the outgoing 2013 year, tremendous work was carried out by the designers of the Special Design Bureau of Machine Building (SKBM) in tandem with the production workers of Kurganmashzavod OJSC (KMZ): the first prototypes of the modernized armored personnel carrier BTR-MDM, the promising kurgan platform “Kurganets -NN -NM -NM -NM -NM -NM -NM -NM -NM -NM -NM -NM -NM -NM -NM-Yn-YMT -NMX -NMX-NMX” were created. at its base. Production of ten modernized BMD-25М and BTR-MDM, the state tests of which are scheduled to begin in January-February of 4 in parallel with the controlled military operation, was put into production. The first few images of these products will be shipped ahead of the December 2014 schedule.

According to the commander of the airborne troops of Russia, Vladimir Shamanov, the airborne troops are scheduled to equip the 700 BMD-4M and the same number of BTR-MDM. At the same time, the colonel-general emphasized that the potential of industrial enterprises today allows for a quick revision of the samples and the start of production of military equipment with company and battalion sets. “Enterprises are capable of creating pre-charts in order to fully comply with the parameters of the state defense order of an armament program,” he said.

Another enterprise that is part of the Tractor Plants Military Equipment Division, OOO Volkograd Tractor Plant VMK (VgTZ), as part of the state order, continues to carry out major repairs with the modernization of BMD-1 with reduction to the type of BMD-2. The company's specialists carry out maintenance and repair of BMD-2 and vehicles based on them in military units of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation. Also, on a contract basis, VgTZ supplies spare parts to the “deuce” to specialized repair enterprises of the country.


In addition, the plant is a co-executor of state contracts for development work on a number of topics carried out by Kurgan enterprises of the machine-building industrial group - KMZ and SKBM. VgTZ supplies its cooperation colleagues in Kurgan with components based on BMD-4M and BTR-MDM chassis, and Lipetsk crawler tractors (LZGT) Ltd. in Lipetsk — units for C-300B anti-aircraft missile systems.

To date, the LZGT state contract for the manufacture of tractor units for air defense systems in the interests of the Ministry of Defense is also at the stage of timely execution.


“Today, practically all the enterprises of the Concern’s Tractor Plants military division are working hard to fulfill their obligations under the state defense orders,” says Mikhail Levshunov, head of the military equipment department of Tractor Plants. - We understand that the Russian Army in the near future expects to receive reliable modern military equipment with high power. We are ready for close cooperation with the Ministry of Defense in order to carry out as soon as possible and efficiently the refinement of prototypes and the preparation of production for the mass production of military equipment. I note that a large amount of work for Kurgan enterprises of the machine-building industrial group Concern Tractor Plants is associated with development and development of prototypes of the average Kurganets-25 tracked platform and machines based on it. But this is still a closed topic. ”

    Kurganets-25, BMD-4M, BTR-MDM: Tractor Plants are ahead of the curve


    Military equipment is certainly good, even excellent! But after reading "Tractor Plants" thought, what kind of tractors do they produce? and is it released at all? And then in our fields one imported equipment plows! All sorts of "John Deere" and "New Hollands".

          In the beginning there were problems and complaints now, it seems that the manufacturer took into account the flaws, since there are no problems with the replacement of units. But many, if there are funds, still prefer to buy imported forestry equipment. Or repair the old one.

        In fact, they produce tractors in Cheboksary. These are heavy industrial tractors T-11, T-15, T-20, T-25, T-35, T-40, as well as pipelayers based on them. The remaining products are distributed in other cities. Although, if in Soviet times they made about 200 T-330 tractors per month, now only about 40-50 are produced

      The plant in Cheboksary, of course, is colossal - it was supposed to produce equipment for transferring the northern rivers.
      It was commissioned in the late 70s.
      Now he is doing something on ind. orders of Gazprom and similar structures, but, of course, few and almost hand-to-hand.

          Maybe the sleeves belong to work, it’s all right, the state will buy this product all the same, albeit at an expensive price, they don’t want to work for them, and the leadership is the lion's share of the profit (or financing, if there is no profit).

    Kurganets-25, BMD-4M, BTR-MDM: Tractor Plants are ahead of the curve

    Where is it all? To be "ahead of the curve" is when so much was planned, but more was done, isn't it ?! What do we have? "In 2014, it is planned to supply 200 modernized BMD-2 to the Airborne Forces." "Modernized", that is, the BMD-1 hull with a tower from the "two" ....

      BMD-4 was adopted by the Russian Armed Forces on December 31, 2004. In August 2005, the first batch of these vehicles arrived at the location of the 137th Guards Parachute Regiment (106th Guards Airborne Forces).

      For BMD-3 - generally silent. Or do you think dear RUSS69 that they are also being tested?

      Greetings, Bortradi operator! This is the "Roshchinskaya" peacekeeping brigade, it is imprisoned for Sr. Asia. She really needed these boxes, and now they came. A new and at the same time familiar military equipment with improved fire and communication characteristics is plus, than - you probably read, the other day there was an official statement by the deputy min. Ministry of Foreign Affairs about the special concern of our country, about the concentration in northern Afghanistan of 5ooo groups of Taliban troops. As well as moderate Pashtuns (and there are such), they are also increasing their numbers in the border area. They said directly about the possibility of massive breakthroughs in the northern direction of autonomous, well-armed and co-ordinated detachments of militants. So the brand new BTR-82A is good.

        I recently watched the BTR-82A from the inside (according to the photo), so I don’t understand why the foam rubber heater (in my UAZ the same hood and the shaft for blowing are sheathed) had to tighten the sides from the inside (under which there are a lot of cables and other rubbish) this is to burn better is it?
        By the way, about cables, etc. it was impossible to tidy them into separate boxes, even in our buses I did not see such an electrical mess.
        I see no reason for admiration; one must judge for such as wrecking.

            I'm not blind, dermantine with a foam lining, thank God I distinguish from Kevlar.
            Even in the photo. From exactly the same material I have on my working "loaf" the hood and the shaft where the gearshift and RK levers are finished (factory material). If it is Kevlar lining, then I am the commander of the BMV.
            Look at the "TIGERS" lining and, as they say, you will feel the difference, one enterprise produces them.

And the answer to the question about equipment and weapons was the same as it was in 90 years, and remained. Or they got one T-90S tank for ostentatious pokatushek. I do not believe in our defenses. That's just because of the spirit of Russian I believe.

    The new equipment in the troops is needed as air, but if its quality is as before, there will be no sense in it.
    And God forbid a failure in battle, so generally a tragedy.

    The article is certainly interesting, but I’ll add a spoon of decta to the barrel of honey. In fact, the mound did little of the BMD only repair, and then one out of 10 will be assembled and then a tractor will drag it at the training ground. Having worked for the VMK VGTZ for 3 years as the foreman of the production site, I’ll immediately say that they did the modernization of BMD1 and assembled and manufactured all the suspension mechanisms of the control tower, the crosstalk and tested new cars on the Volgograd training ground. There is not enough capacity at the plant and even the old equipment has not changed for about 50 years, but there were lines and you could do it. Now the assembly was completely removed by placing the tractor there and the test shop was removed. All thanks to two people swamp and beak. Now the plant has been half-destroyed and dismissed. The assembly was transferred to the mound for the main parts and units while they are doing there, but rumors are already circulating that the plant will soon fall apart. On the mound they will not be able to make new machines because it is necessary to debug production anew, which takes not 1 day and not a year.
