OTT Technology has delivered the first batch of M36 armored vehicles Puma to the UN peacekeeping forces in Mali

The American company Dincorp International and its partner OTT Technology Mozambique completed the assembly of 16 from 115 armored vehicles for use by the African Union peacekeeping forces in Mali.


OTT Technology Mozambique is a division of the South African company OTT Technology, which produces armored vehicles with enhanced protection from the M26 and M36 Puma mines, several other armored personnel carriers and military trucks.

According to the resource Defenseweb.co.za, 16 units. The M36 Puma 4x4 wheel formula was assembled at the plant in Matola (in the south of Mozambique) and delivered to the port of Maputo for shipment to Mali two weeks ago.

According to Ashley Burke, representative of Dincorp International, the vehicles were ordered by the US government for delivery to the UN peacekeeping forces in Mali.

Dincorp International has signed a contract worth $ 173 million with the US Department of State, which provides funds for the supply of new equipment under the AFRICAP program in Africa.

As part of an order under AFRICAP, Dincorp International is responsible for overseeing the production and delivery of 115 Puma M36 armored vehicles for the United Nations Multidisciplinary Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA). Most of the components for armored vehicles assembled in Mozambique come from South Africa.

As planned, the ordered lot of armored vehicles M36 "Puma" will be transferred to the units of the Armed Forces of seven West African countries participating in the MINUSMA mission.

The M36 Mk.5 case is made of all-welded steel armor. The armored car can be equipped with hinged armor, depending on customer requirements. Maximum combat weight - 14 t, own weight - 11,9 t, length - 6,6 m, width - 2,5 m, height - 2,7 m.

The armored vehicle is equipped with the Ashok Leyland six-cylinder water-cooled diesel engine HA 57L 165 with the power 220 hp, manual transmission ZF 6S 850 with six forward and one reverse gears and a two-speed transfer case.

The maximum speed on the highway is 100 km / h, the range of fuel (290-liter fuel tank) is 800 km. M36 is designed for transportation to 12 people.

In the standard configuration, the ballistic protection of the armored vehicle meets the requirements of the STANAG 4569 “Level.3” standard (with the exception of protection against armor-piercing 7,62x51-mm cartridges), and the protection against mines exceeds the requirements of the STANAG 4569b standard “Level.4”. The case has a V-shaped bottom to increase the level of protection against mines.

    With such a fuel consumption, she still needs to hook an American tanker on the back and ride on a hose radius! People reach out of hunger, and these people shove without a twinge of conscience everything that they themselves didn’t use!

      therefore supplied to Africa lol and for all MCUs, the average fuel consumption is 20- lit..on 100 cells .., but here is the economy option (((
      the cost of one unit, M36 "Puma" 300,000 $$$ (((
      an armored car, to reduce the cost of production, is assembled with a dvigl .., on components and assemblies, Indian trucks, TATA MOTORS ((((
      Western counterparts are standing, about 600.000 $$$
      excellent armored car, for the price and quality ((((
      for a joint venture, with this YUarovskaya company, to create and produce armored vehicles on the chassis of the Urals and KamAZs, 4x4 !!! We would have it even cheaper, it was, but more economical in terms of fuel consumption ((((
      and not any sanctions, in general it is necessary to strengthen cooperation with South Africa, in the military sphere in all areas (((
      they have the latest technology, cooperation between South Africa and Russia will be mutually beneficial !!!

    Why are they better than armored personnel carriers? At a price? I doubt very much, remove the turret from the APCs and drive like an armored car. Unambiguous drank dough.

          but in Africa in the UN mission, without mine-protected armored vehicles there is nothing to do ((((
          Isn’t it easier to clear the area?
          And in general, why such a panic about mines?
          Have you personally been there that you can say with complete certainty that in Mali you can’t get into a mine or IEDs?
          Why is it so naive that the Yankees gathered there to support some kind of peace?
          This is just a planned tour of the territory, to check whether everyone else has died there so that the Yankees can mine diamonds, oil or something else there.
          That is why a mission is carried out there under the guise of the UN. In such a simple way, the necessary information is collected about the life of the local population. In this case, everything is legal. And reports on the work done are sent to the customer.
          Look in the net for the sake of interest how much and what kind of "humanitarian aid" the Yankees or the UN have brought to Mali recently. Just don't be surprised.
          Everyone has long known that the UN leadership is just a pawn in the hands of global financial movers.
          Once this organization was created as a council of the peoples of the planet to solve world problems, but over time it degraded to the executor of the will of world oligarchic clans.

            In addition, compare the payload volume and load capacity of the M36 Puma and our KAMAZ and URALS.
            And then you will understand why they sent these cars there. wink

    Looks like a new point of hostilities is drawn. In spite of this, Americans are throwing their equipment there. it’s immediately clear that they will take revenge there, but somehow it doesn’t work with Russia.

      That is, at the time when the Defense Ministry was led by Serdyukov.
