Created civilian modification PTS-4

22
In 2014, the military should receive the first floating tracked conveyors of the new model. Machines PTS-4 will allow troops to update the fleet of amphibious equipment designed for the transport of personnel and various goods. PTS-4 is a new machine of the family of domestic floating conveyors and is intended to gradually replace the similar technique of previous models - PTS-2 and PTS-3. In the foreseeable future, a new modification of the PTS-4 transporter should appear. It is proposed to create a version of such a machine, intended for use by civilian structures.

During last year’s flooding in the Far East, the military actively assisted the victims using existing equipment. PTS-3 floating conveyors were used to transport various cargoes and evacuate the injured. Nearly two dozen of these machines in total transported several hundred tons of various cargoes, which greatly assisted the population and rescuers. This resulted in the proposal to create a special modification of the newest PTS-4 transporter, designed for non-military use.

According to the press service of the corporation "Uralvagonzavod", employees of the Omsk Transport Engineering Design Bureau (KBTM) have begun to develop a civilian modification of the PTS-4 transporter. It is assumed that the new machine will be operated by various structures of the Ministry of Emergency Situations, the Ministry of Transport, the Ministry of Environment and other departments. The technical appearance and characteristics of the conveyor will allow him, after minimal changes, to work effectively not only in the armed forces and carry out the tasks assigned to transport soldiers and equipment.

The development of civil modifications PTS-4 started not so long ago, but already some of the features of the perspective car are known. When processing into a civilian version, the military floating conveyor will lose some components and parts, and will also receive a number of new ones. First of all, a new modification of the amphibian will lose its reservation and weapons. The cab of the base conveyor is protected by anti-bullet armor, and also carries a remote-controlled turret with a machine gun. Modification of the PTS-4 for rescuers for obvious reasons does not need armor and a machine gun.

The power plant of the floating machine will undergo certain modifications. According to official data, civilian PTS-4 will have an increased resource of the engine and transmission. Some changes will affect the cabin. In the cockpit of a civilian transporter there will be seats for three crew members, including the driver. Designers KBTM promise to improve the ergonomics of the cabin and, as a consequence, the convenience of the crew.

It is claimed that the new modification of the PTS-4 transporter will have the same characteristics as the base machine. From this it follows that a promising machine will be able to transport cargo weighing up to 12 tons at a speed of up to 60 km / h. When crossing the water barrier, the conveyor will be able to take cargo up to 18 tons and transport it at speeds up to 15 km / h. The dimensions of the cargo platform, apparently, remain the same: 8,28x3,3 meters.

An important feature of the PTS-4 floating conveyor and a promising civilian vehicle based on it are the features of its production. The design of the PTS-4 repeats to some extent the design of the previous PTS-3 conveyor, however, the new machine has a different composition of units and assemblies. In the design of the conveyor PTS-4, some domestic units are used tanks T-80 and T-72. Recall that in the construction of the PTS-3 conveyors, T-64 tank units were used, the serial construction of which ceased at the end of the eighties. The use of tank spare parts will, to a certain extent, simplify the construction and operation of new equipment.

PTS-4 transporter is equipped with tracks and torsions borrowed from the T-80 tank. The box and clutches are taken from the T-72 tank. A multi-fuel diesel engine with an HP 840 power is installed on the conveyor. Own weight of the machine - 33,1 tons. The payload weight depends on the task being performed and the conditions, but does not exceed 18 tons.

From the official information about the new project, it follows that civilian modification of the PTS-4 transporter will have minimal differences from the base machine. From this we can draw some conclusions about the timing of the project. Probably, the completion of the machine for civilian use will take only a few months. A prototype civilian floating conveyor may appear before the end of this year. Nevertheless, the official information about the timing of the completion of the development of the machine is not yet available. Information about the timing of the start of mass construction, too, has not yet been announced.

    It would be better to build roads, bridges and flood dams than to adapt army equipment to overcome disorder.

      I do not agree. Any technique is important and useful. Everything needs to be developed. Do not recall that there in Yugoslavia they bombed in the first place? Are bridges by the hour?

      Russia, as you know, has two troubles, fools and roads. And if one of them can be dealt with using the ice rink, then nobody knows what to do with the roads. And somehow you need to move. With our distances and directions you are not on foot.

    This amphibian is very useful for those who have to work in difficult conditions of the Far North, Eastern Siberia and the Far East. Where the construction of high-grade roads is associated with unreasonably high costs or is impossible due to local conditions (heavily wetlands, etc.).
    A relatively inexpensive car for equipment of this class.
    But I personally like the DT-10 and DT-30 Vityaz all-terrain vehicles more.

      And I'm talking about too, civilian equipment for the far north is already there. This re-qualification took place after a flood in the Far East. The sappers have such a technique, and the Ministry of Emergencies also wanted to.

      YES SUCH PRODUCT FILLED IN, THIS IS A REALLY ADVANCED APPARATUS THERE IS SO MUCH KNOW = HOW, SO HAS NO PRICE AND SEARCHING AND RESCUE VEHICLES THAT IN BAIKANUR IS ALSO UNIQUE, THIS IS ANYWHERE, THIS IS ANOTHER FURTHER THAN ITS FOLLOWERS, IT'S ABOUT BUCKWHEAT, NOW THIS MACHINES ARE NOT NEEDED BECAUSE IN THE WEST THERE ARE NO LONGER THEM, ALTHOUGH I THINK A DISPUTABLE STATEMENT, AND IT IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO CREATE THE PRODUCTION THERE IS ALMOST POSSIBLE , NOW ARE ESTABLISHING NEW PRODUCTION CHAINS AND THIS IS VERY DIFFICULT,

    request Well, they are different cars! PTS, if you like, is more "professionally sharpened", in essence it is still a ferry, self-propelled vehicle, and not an all-terrain SUV for long hauls.

      I do not deny ... But the capabilities of the Vityaz all-terrain vehicles are somehow more universal ...

    It is high time to introduce this apparatus into civilian structures ... Has anyone seen what titanic efforts are made during the operation of GTT, GTS, ATS and their analogs in swampy terrain, tundra by geologists, tracers, pipeline builders? First, heavy equipment is planted up to its ears, then whole rescue operations are carried out to "pull the hippopotamus out of the swamp" ... PTS is very necessary in these conditions. In terms of the sum of its operational qualities, it is two heads higher than other tracked transporters.

      GTT and MTLBV, MTLBU will be walkable, less weight is wider than pieces, but on water like cows on ice, especially if with the passage of the ferry, how many of them drowned in the north. Title in this regard is certainly convenient with its screws. In flood zones and as a ferry, the thing is excellent and necessary.

    In the 5th photo, the guards on the tracks. For what?
    They will not help from RPGs, they can bend when entering the water ....
    so that the Americans are more afraid?

    But the thing is good. Topical for Russia.

      To reduce the reverse reactive moment during the operation of the caterpillar mover in water and reduce drag. On BMP bags, the upper part of the caterpillar is also covered by a casing, only of a lower height.
      A Title - BEAUTY !!!!!

    PTS - a unique car.

    At one time, I was simply shocked by his ability to eliminate natural disasters in ZabVO.
    The guys from the engineer-sapper battalion on it that just did not get up ...
    - they simply took bread, canned food, water, blankets, tents, inflatable boats and ... walked straight ahead to the flooded village, somewhere on the gusli they dripped, somewhere they rowed with screws, somewhere both at the same time.
    Swamps, hills, rivers ... spread everything to this "roaring hippopotamus".
    - And children and women were brought back.

    And how they filigree maneuvered between the ice and sludge in early November and May ...
    And rescue and emergency operations, and insurance of the PMP crossing ...
    When underwater driving tanks on the shores were always BTS and PTS, it was calmer.

    Therefore, in the "Czech Republic" I was not surprised when the TCP also showed itself in all its glory, especially in full slush, when there was nothing to carry ammunition for the tanks ... there was nothing, everything was drowning in the mud.
    And PTSu at least henna ...
    PTS and IMR are the most respected engineering horse cars.
    Memory, eheh ...

    Do you need a civilian modification for the Ministry of Emergencies?
    The TCP itself is needed by the Ministry of Emergency Situations, it is indisputable and they are in the Ministry of Emergencies.
    Removing armor and weapons and other army shnyag will certainly reduce the cost of the car and make it easier for the mass, simplify its operation, plus it is possible to make more comfortable conditions for the life and work of the crew. Many lack such equipment, and military modifications are not cheap.
    This is of course a plus.

    But:
    Such a thing as ... mobilization resources suffers, since these PTSs will no longer be adapted for military operations, like army models ... Believe me, cabin reservation is not just done starting with PTS-2 ... plus another protection.

    I hope that the decision will be made CORRECT.
    I do not presume to judge the correctness of the production of the civilian version.
    Thanks for the info Cyril.

    Quotes from the Amur mass media during the flood:

    ... "Can you imagine, now in Konstantinovka we will carry milk to PTS? This is such an event - 4 tons of milk to bring. And so for each. Aircraft have already flown about 80 hours! And the flying hour by helicopter is very expensive, ”said Konstantin Chmarov, Deputy Prime Minister of the Amur Region ....

    ... More recently, a woman in labor from the village of Zhuravlevka entered the Central Hospital. Employees of the Ministry of Emergencies helped her to evacuate literally in the last days of pregnancy. The day before they visited a young mother.
    Stepan weighing in 3 kilograms of 200 grams was born on 13 of August. An emergency regime was officially announced in the area that day. Water cut eight settlements from the mainland. Including the village, from where Yevgeny Samsonov was delivered.
    The young mother remembers vaguely the journey from Zhuravlevka to Arkhara. Doctors say: everything is understandable, the woman experienced stress. 50 kilometers covered on four vehicles. First car, then military title, then a helicopter and again a car, which delivered the woman in labor from the airport to the Central District Hospital ...

      But it's worth it.
      At least because of the carrying capacity of DT-10 10 tons, DT-30 30 tons.

    It’s a normal machine, just to make the cabin cozy, comfortable in the basic configuration. And then we have a car that costs several million, and to put a normal heater and codec on, the designers of brains don’t have it. You go into the cabin of any military machine and ,,,,,,, appliances are all from the t-34, ohrinet! Yes, and a tank diesel is not needed here, turn it over to ferrous metal. Put a normal modern. Volvo six 800 hp It is quite suitable, and the stench is less, and the diesel fuel will gobble up 3 times less. Generally go for it, are you talented?
