BTR-3 armored personnel carriers and manufacturer's news

66
In recent weeks, the Kiev armored plant became a real generator News. On August 12, Ukrainian media reported on the results of a prosecutor’s audit at the enterprise. Supervisory authorities found that the T-72 tank, which was in storage there, disappeared from the plant. In fact, the loss of the car is under investigation. The day after the theft news tank Ukrainian prosecutors arrested the director of the Kiev armored plant Eduard Ilyin. He is suspected of participating in fraud, as a result of which the army lost its combat vehicle.


A few days later, new information appeared in the Ukrainian media about the work of the Kiev Armored Plant. Probably, the company management decided to correct the shaken reputation and invited journalists to the workshops. They were told the latest news about the work of the enterprise and showed the production of new armored vehicles. The announced information allows to form an opinion on the work of the plant, and also gives grounds for certain conclusions.

It is reported that in order to provide the forces of the "anti-terrorist operation" with armored vehicles, the Kiev armored plant had to go to work in two shifts. The main task of the enterprise at the present time is the construction of armored personnel carriers BTR-3. About two dozen such machines have already been transferred to the customer. To ensure the operation of armored personnel carriers from among the factory employees, a repair crew was formed. Now she is in a combat zone and is engaged in servicing armored vehicles of the army and the Nagtsvard.

The Internet edition Delo.ua was able to find out some details of the operation of the equipment supplied. With reference to the head of the trade union of the plant, Vladimir Yakovenko, it is stated that repairmen mainly have to deal with engine maintenance. The Kiev Armored Plant directs the repair team various parts and accessories that are used to repair armored vehicles. In this case, so far there has not been a single case where the armor of combat vehicles would need repair. V. Yakovenko believes that this is due to the additional protection in the form of lattice screens installed on the equipment.

In addition to the construction of armored personnel carriers, the Kiev Armored Plant is engaged in the repair and modernization of equipment. Thus, the company received the task to modernize a batch of T-72 tanks. In the course of these works, combat vehicles receive a new Ukrainian-made engine with horsepower 1050. As in the case of armored personnel carriers, the repair of tanks is carried out in the interests of the Ukrainian armed forces.

The two dozen BTR-3 armored personnel carriers, mentioned by representatives of the Kiev Armored Plant, were probably built in accordance with a recent order. In May of this year, the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense ordered the 22 armored personnel carrier of this model for a total cost of about 100 million hryvnia. This technique was supposed to be distributed between units of the ground forces and the National Guard. Thus, over the past few months, the plant managed to transfer to the military all or almost all the ordered vehicles. The fact that the construction of the BTR-3 was mastered by a Kiev factory several years ago could have contributed to such a quick order fulfillment. It was the Kiev Armored Plant that assembled combat vehicles from the supplied components. Some other enterprises were involved in the manufacture of components and assemblies for new equipment, in particular, armored hulls produced by the Mariupol Azovmash plant.

BTR-3 armored personnel carriers and manufacturer's news


The armored personnel carrier BTR-3 was developed by the Kharkov Design Bureau for Mechanical Engineering named after A.A. Morozov and is a further development of the BTR-80, created in the USSR. Ukrainian engineers have retained the main features of the machine, but have significantly reworked it taking into account the capabilities of the industry and using other components. As a result of this approach to the design, the BTR-3 retained the layout of the BTR-80 with an average location of the troop compartment and the power plant in the stern.

The combat vehicle has a body that provides protection against bullets and shrapnel. The basis of the power plant is a German-made MTU 6R 106 TD21 diesel engine manufactured in Germany with power up to 325 hp. The engine is mated to an Allison transmission. With a combat weight of about 16,5 tons (this parameter depends on the configuration), the machine, according to official data, is capable of accelerating to 100 km / h. If necessary, the armored personnel carrier can cross water obstacles by swimming at a speed of up to 8 km / h.

An interesting feature of the BTR-3 is the ability to install various combat modules in accordance with customer requirements. For example, modification of APC-3E1 equipped weapon station BM-3M "Sturm M," carriers 30-mm automatic cannon ZTM-1, coupled 7,62-mm gun CT-7,62, two launchers "Barrier" missiles and 30-mm automatic grenade launcher KBA-117.

In the two thousand years, the armored personnel carriers BTR-3 of various modifications interested foreign customers. A number of such combat vehicles were sold to Azerbaijan, Ecuador, Myanmar, Chad and other developing countries. The largest customer of the BTR-3 was Thailand, by the year 2011 bought more than a hundred BTR-3 and later ordered an additional batch of 120 vehicles. By 2010, the United Arab Emirates received about 90 Ukrainian armored personnel carriers. Sudan could become another major customer, but after receiving the first batch of 10 machines, the Sudanese military was unhappy with their quality and canceled the order.

In May of this year, the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense for the first time placed an order for the BTR-3. In accordance with it, in the near future, the armed forces and the National Guard should receive 22 vehicles in the BTR-3E version with the Deutz BF6M1015 engine and the Sturm-M combat module. As follows from recent reports, some of these machines have already been transferred to the customer and, probably, sent to the combat zone.

For the time being, one cannot speak about the real combat effectiveness of the BTR-3E armored personnel carriers recently transferred to the Ukrainian military. Any reliable information about the seizure or destruction of machines of this model has not yet appeared. A small number of BTR-3E and the recent start of deliveries do not yet allow starting the full operation of such equipment and, as a result, form an opinion on its real effectiveness. It should be noted that during the battles of recent months, the Ukrainian security forces lost a large number of armored personnel carriers BTR-70 and BTR-80, which in a number of parameters do not differ much from BTR-3Е. In addition, we should not forget about the poor training of fighters and illiterate troop control.

The general situation on the fronts of Novorossia is such that the message of the destruction of the first BTR-3 can come at any time. Also, do not exclude the possibility that the Ukrainian armored personnel carriers will become trophies of the militia and will be used by them against the former owners. Anyway, all praise about this technique should be considered as advertising and an attempt to interest potential customers. The participation of BTR-3E in battle, in turn, will help future buyers to learn more about this technique and draw the appropriate conclusions.

      But you are not looking at the workers, you are looking at their “army” - they’re directly at Batka Makhno, all in different forms — some in the used Bundeswehr, some in the English, some in the American figure, some in Ukrainian hb, and shoes- some in sneakers, some in sneakers (especially in white for the Bundeswehr’s pants, it looks awesome), and some in rubber slippers. This is probably such a tribute to the historical traditions of Gulyai-Pol, the former Ukraine.

            In a question about "America’s voice caught" ...
            .
            “In childhood” (a year, in the 70s), wandering around the surrounding fields of our city - we came across with a comrade-in - to some orphaned military training ground and snubbed there (like young amateur radio technicians) meters, probably a hundred copper stranded antenna cable in fabric tarred isolation. Fir-trees were filled.
            Then they pulled this cable in a zig-zag pattern in the attic of our five-story “Khrushchev” building and launched a “drop” to the second floor, where they brought it into the window of the apartment. Instead of grounding, a steam heating battery was used.
            .
            Since it was a shame in my ass to quickly check “how it works, everything” - then between the antenna and ground I was literally screwed on urgently (there was no time to solder!) - a high-impedance TON-2 earphone (2200ohm) and in series with it - a D9 diode. Without any “oscillatory circuit” and a smoothing capacitor!
            - I.e. in the earphone "won" THE MOST POWERFUL RADIO STATION ... And it - EARNED! And loud enough! If it was quiet at home, then the radio transmission through the headphone could be heard about a meter and a half ...
            .
            What was heard?
            - In the afternoon - our local "lighthouse" was walking. Its over, about 20 km. Broadcast on "SV" 10-kilowatt regional broadcasting radio station.
            - But in the evening ... when the "passage" to "KV" began - in the evening ALL other radio stations - including our local 10-kW. “Lighthouse” - LITERALLY PRESSED (!) “VOICE OF AMERICA” !!! - and here it must be taken into account - that there were NO local stations of the “voice of America” in central Russia in those days ...
            - This is to the question of whether such "TOTAL POWER OF A RADIO SIGNAL" was pumped by "bourgeois" into the broadcast of the "voice of America" ​​in the USSR ...

          It was in the spring of 2012 of the year in Mittenwald (not last year, call me):

          According to Cottbus Police this morning (15.3.2012), the police received a statement about the unusual theft that occurred in the Mittenwalde area. Unknowns stole a locomotive of the 52 series from the territory of one partnership. The 135-ton locomotive was probably hitched by another locomotive on the siding and transported in an unknown direction. The total amount of damage is reported to be more than 60 000 euros.
          Locomotives were rented for museum trips.
          In Motzen, the locomotive (522195) was put on temporary parking. From the parking lot he was later to be pulled to Staßfurt, where they must undergo a major overhaul.

          The reason for the theft was a dispute at the Hei Na Ganzlin eV railway partnership in Plau am See, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. “Now we know who stole our locomotive,” said Klaus Berendt, member of the Executive Council of this partnership. former Chairman of the Board of Directors Dr. Rainer Zache, who considered it unfair to expel his person from the association. "That's right, the locomotive is located in our (Rainer Zache) club in Bernau. We transported the lock legally, because the locomotive belongs to the club. In addition, in Motzen, the historic locomotive was provided with bad weather, while in Bernau it is indoors and protected from the weather. "responded Dr. Zache."

          Brandenburg Police acknowledged receipt of notice. "However, we must first study this issue," he says. But, apparently, it will not be a matter of theft, since Dr. Zache has already once sued the right to own this locomotive through a court. Whether the opposing party filed an appeal regarding the theft of the right to own the locomotive is still unclear. This process must be resolved within the framework of civil law.
          But this is only the tip of the iceberg: Already in November of the 2010 of the year, members of a club of one of the parties appeared at the Berlin Museum of Technology, and began to claim that the legal owners of the other two 60-ton diesel locomotives that Dr. Zache exhibited there. Later, neither locomotive was taken away.

    The installation of the German engine and western (American?) Transmission resulted in a re-arrangement and a significant increase in the “tail”. Still, our people are able to make engines and transmissions of the right size. For military equipment, this is very important. Any excess volume occupied by the power department takes these volumes from the fighting compartment or the landing, or / and increases the size and weight of the machine. In addition, I can also say that only the Deutsche engine did not reduce reliability, but the other Allison engine and transmission will be cooler than the usual ones from the BTR-80.
    I think it is not wise to strive for reliability in different Strikes and other Western Labudenes, which America itself is not proud of.

    The engine, six-row, 7.2-liter, and in terms of power and traction, frankly weak. but the machine saves. Well, in any case, better than the KAMAZ engine and gearbox. Of the weapons, in addition to the standard 30 mm cannons and machine guns, automatic grenade launchers are also installed. Look at the pictures, it seems to me that holes are brewing. By the way, the Germans offer to upgrade our tanks. install their engines and transmission on them. capacity from 800 horses to 1200. I mean those countries that have our tanks. It seems that this option is much better. than installing Ukrainian diesel engines.

    Looking through the photos, I had a feeling that an enlarged roof was welded to the old BTR-80, slightly modified the stern and brew the standard loopholes in front (you can clearly see in the last photo) and voila the new BTR-3

    BTR-3 is BTR-80, it seems in the 2000s, together with a company from the United Arab Emirates, they remade the BTR-80. With engines was strained. then Ivekovsky set. but Iveka refused to supply engines, why I do not know. they set their own, now MTU.

    Please note that on the new BTR-3s being assembled there are tires with a worn tread. On the T-72, one third of the rinks are old.

    I doubt it ...
    Because, in addition to being in demand, they also look at the ability to create, maintain and modernize this equipment in the future without problems. And what will happen to Ukraine in six months - can anyone predict?

    BTR-3 burns just like No. 1 and No. 2 ... and certainly 22 pieces will not save the old, full of holes and inevitably sinking barge with the proud name "Ukraine." And it could walk and work for its people for many years. The beauty was overloaded, and they forgot to merge the ballast. Here it goes to the bottom and cannot be leveled by any armored personnel carriers and tanks. The crew is just stupid, doesn’t notice this or notice? The insurance premium is too high ... it’s more profitable for the overseas owner to drown.

    As far as I understand, on some armored personnel carriers Thai camouflage, i.e. these are those that Thailand refused, so German diesels on them. It seems that the lateral projection is larger than that of the 80s.

    If the Ukrainian "troika" are German diesel engines and GMFs, then this is a serious step forward. BTR is easier to manage for poorly trained drivers. Patency should also be at a level no worse than ours. In terms of mobility too.
    It is noteworthy that the Ukrainian engineers in order to install the module with cannon armament, increased the armored hull in height along the entire length. Which could adversely affect the stability of the machine afloat during excitement, because its center of gravity has changed. But there is another plus in this, the car has more internal space.
    In terms of combat characteristics, the BTR-3 is approximately equal to our BTR-82.

      The commander has a separate panoramic device for monitoring, searching for targets and target designation “Panorama-2P” and a remote control for providing duplicate weapon control of the combat module through the gunner’s sighting devices. The panoramic camera is capable of rising to a height of 0,5 meters above the tower and allows you to conduct a circular view, it is used by the commander to target the gunner.

      The BM-3M Sturm turret module has a stabilization system for the weapon block in two planes. BTR-3E1 can hit the armored vehicles, manpower and rotorcraft of the enemy. The module contains a 30 mm gun type 2A72 or ZTM-1, a 7,62 mm machine gun type PKT or CT, a 30 mm automatic grenade launcher type AG-17 or KBA-117 and a guided weapon system Barrier with four missiles with armor penetration dynamic protection of at least 800 millimeters. The rifled small-caliber automatic 30 mm dual-feed cannon is equipped with ammunition of 350 shells of various types. Ammunition 7,62 mm machine gun reaches 2000 rounds. On the left side of the module is a 30-mm automatic grenade launcher KBA-117.

      The fire control complex consists of the OTP-20 optical-electronic sighting system integrated with the Barrier anti-tank fire control system and the SVU-500 weapon stabilizer in vertical and horizontal planes, which allows firing on the go. On the tower, three pieces on each side, 81-mm smoke or aerosol grenades "Cloud", powered by an electric trigger, are installed.

        Distinctive features of the BTR-3E1 are a new uninhabited tower, a silencer located on the port side in the stern, and an MTO roof with a fan cooling system, as well as reinforced brake drums with more protruding protective covers on the wheel disks.

    Well, what is so modern about them? how fundamentally they differ from their parent BTR-80, created in the early 80s of the last century ...
