Scorpions for the Russian army




Russia, following foreign countries such as the USA, France and Germany, began to pay great attention to the development of light armored vehicles. Scorpio-LTA and Scorpio-LSHA - the latest examples of Russian armored vehicles. Domestic armored vehicles manufactured by CJSC Protecting Corporation in their parameters do not lag behind the best foreign analogues.

Scorpions for the Russian army


The first phenomenon of a light tactical car Scorpio public occurred during the international salon "Integrated Safety-2011". It is planned that the novelty will be able to participate in counter-terrorism and intelligence operations, patrolling territories, as well as accompanied by convoys on any roads and in their absence. Permeability of the car at the highest level. Reliable cover provide machine guns "Kord" and KPVT, as well as grenade launcher "Flame".



With the mass of an armored car in 4 tons, its speed limit - 130 km / h, the power reserve of the Scorpion-LTA is equal to one thousand kilometers. Small bullet protection weaponsinstalled on the car, equated to 6 class GOST, additionally installed structures that protect against detonation of explosive devices within 6 kg TNT.



The society met with the light assault car Scorpio in 2010 year. This armored vehicle can be used to transport eight people, transport cargo, evacuate the wounded, and also participate in special ground operations. As well as the model described above, the Scorpion-LSHA can be a carrier of weapons and be used in any weather on any roads. At present, this armored car is being tested according to a special program of the Russian Ministry of Defense, since it is planned that in the coming months light assault vehicles will go into service.

The appearance of new light armored vehicles is not too different from conventional SUVs. Hidden reservation leads to the fact that an outsider may not distinguish at all military equipment from a conventional car. At the same time, tests are also conducted on the unarmored civilian version of the Scorpions, which can become a traveling part of the commanding staff. Cars are crammed with special equipment, including video tracking devices, navigation devices, fuse suppression devices and others. Such a filling can save the life of the driver and passengers in many situations.

        Jaguar,

        It’s only because the rear compartment is covered with an awning and the tank is not armored! ! Replace the tent with armor and the masses will equal!

        But the fully armored rear compartment guarantees against a situation when, when fired from behind, the first RPG breaks the tent and the second makes a hole in the cabin! ! !

      In "Military Secret" they said Italian for border guards and for pushing our military-industrial complex.
      It’s high time to get used to the attacks of the Moscow Region, where the merchant is sitting there, not the military man.

    So they are glamorous, there is Italian design ... From the best furniture manufacturers. And the fact that they are none in our conditions are aspects. Firstly, they have stylish door handles (from Gucci, probably), and secondly, it’s possible to stumble over money.

      In some issue of "Soldier of Fortune" I read how cranks pulled Len-rovers out of the sand, and UAZ cars drove past them in the same sand filled with mujahideen with DShK, RPG and other ammunition and not including lowered ammunition. There are traditions, there is a school, there are achievements, but interesting ideas of the adversary should be implemented at home and note for free how they are with Kalash, for example

    I do not understand, homemade or what? But the car factories do not want, or they are not given?
    I guess that this is a company with the co-founder of some great-nephew Taburetkin, who won the MO tender for the development of a prototype, yesterday’s students were hired for the money left from the cut, ready to collect a “promising” sample from spare parts with exist.ru at night. They may have a sparkle in their eyes, but there is zero experience, a design school and material and technical base. So there’s nothing to be happy about. It is enough to think about how this company of two people, a telephone and 10 locksmiths is going to conduct development tests. The correct answer, most likely, is not going to, the appearance of violent activity has been generated, the money has been spent .. I hope I'm wrong.
    By the way, compared with the “Tiger” purely visually looks ugly.
    Well, you can’t make a modern car in a garage where collector booths are hung on "loaves"

    I don’t support the idea of ​​ramping up cars of this class, it seems that everyone in the world is going to disperse the crowds only (although you can’t dismiss this fact, the situation is not so good), but in real combat actions all this will burn like matches.

        Do you know the statistics of losses or have you seen in combat conditions? And here I was talking with my fellow officer, who “observed” them in Iraq: they are burning for a sweet soul! After all, the conversation is different: everything really worthwhile must be put at the service of Russia!

      And if mortar shelling begins, then those who will sit in armored cars of this kind will have a hundred times greater chance of survival than those who rode in the frosty UAZ with a tarpaulin roof.

    How much it is already possible to weld a pair of iron sheets to the "Gzhdan avav" and call it modern BA.A if you weld 5 cm of armored plates from the sides, then you can continue to come up with protection classes - "9" for example! What are 6 kg, who checked where? The seats in the cabin are just for pokatushek with "chicks". Modern armored vehicles protected by the MPAP programs require fastening with four-point belts with quick opening and massive anatomical head restraints, which also hang over the shoulders and fix them! On the example of IVECO LMV in Afghanistan, with all the explosions, more than one wounded man did not break his roof against the roof. At least two had compression fractures and crushing of the lumbar vertebrae, but also the IEDs exploded in this case under the cars and were more powerful than 20 kg.

    Here is the destiny of all such obsolete designs on IEDs dangerous theater!

    Damn, not enough. To do so, one platform - like the Wolf. And more to transfer the landing on the fast, and more equipment to place, and the weapon kit is more sophisticated. And this one is a variant of UAZ weighted with armored plates. As always, well ... only generals and colonels to carry their wives? The size of the doors pleased. We have large generals and colonels.

      For me, it's better than Iveka (Lynx). The claimed protection is the same with a freer cabin and less weight of the machine itself.

        A free cabin is not visible here. The knees will rest in the front seats. But the front seat for the general or colonel, really free. I’m saying that we have large generals and colonels.

    Something did not impress me with this unit. I will make a reservation right away - I am not special in armored vehicles, I did not go on it myself, but questions arise.
    1. The engine, gearbox, suspension - American and all there "sometime", "in the future", "subject to the establishment of production" do not roll.
    2. On the video, I never saw the V-shaped bottom.
    3. Straining recognition that the car is not for marshy roads.
    4. Ceramic armor and weight 4t ????
    In my opinion, it’s better for the guys to develop scooters. Maybe there they are more lucky.
    PS. I didn’t want to offend anyone.
