Defense Ministry refused to "UAZ"

Defense Ministry refused to "UAZ"

The Ministry of Defense continues to get rid of the legendary, but obsolete types of weapons and equipment. Following the Kalashnikov, the troops will get rid of the famous Bob UAZ-2015 by 3151. According to a source in the General Staff, in the state defense order for the next nine years, the purchase of UAZ cars is not planned.

“It is possible to purchase these machines by small special parties, but on the whole it can be said that the purchase of“ UAZ vehicles ”for the army has been stopped,” said the representative of the General Staff.

He added that before 2015, the military would use the jeeps already in stock, and by that time they would determine which vehicle to replace them with. It is possible that these will be improved versions of the "UAZ" - UAZ-315195 Hunter. The press service of the UAZ "Izvestia" reported that the military are now buying from the plant only special versions of these machines in limited quantities.

By the personal order of the Minister of Defense Anatoly Serdyukov, the Hunter variant with the ZMZ-514 diesel engine was developed. Another variant of Hunter, but already with the Japanese engine Toyota, the company Sollers, which owns UAZ, makes it in the Far East under the conditional name Gusar.

Several of these vehicles entered the 11 airborne brigade in Ulan-Ude, which was visited in August by Dmitry Medvedev and the DPRK leader Kim Jong Il. A few dozen "Gusarov" put on the Kuril Islands.

The head of the Center for Military Forecasting Anatoly Tsyganok is confident that the new army jeep should be armored.

“In the USA, when they changed the Hummer from old to new, they made one important mistake: they did not make them protected from explosions on the road,” he says. “The Americans realized this mistake only in Afghanistan, where so many fighters died from an explosion on the road.”

First Vice-President of the Academy of Geopolitical Problems, Doctor of Military Sciences
Konstantin Sivkov said that under the new military jeep will have to change the army fuel supply system. If an unpretentious little Bobby can be safely filled with Au-72, then give Hunter (Hunter) 92 or diesel fuel.

“It's even good. AI-72 is almost not produced, and AI-92 - the most common brand. Therefore, the military will not have problems with fuel supply, ”stressed Sivkov.

# {weapon} According to him, a new army SUV should certainly have a reinforced frame, a removable roof or awning, in order to install a machine gun or a small cannon on it, if necessary. In addition, in the back of the jeep should be a place for ammunition, if necessary, deliver them to the gunners. At the same time useful
The load of the Russian “Hummer” should be no less than that of the “Bobby”, at least 800 kg.

History The most popular Soviet jeep began in 1972, when the mass production of the UAZ-469 began. In 1985, he was modernized and under the symbol 3151 for a long time turned into one of the symbols of the Soviet and then the Russian army.

For unpretentiousness and charming look, the military affectionately call the UAZ a "bobby" or "goat." Army jeep was used in parts not only as a passenger car for transportation of commanders. There are various modifications of the SUV for military communications, medical and radiation-chemical intelligence units. Now all these functions will have to be provided by the new machine, Izvestia writes.

As the newspaper VIEW reported in Russia, they are starting to develop a new generation automatic rifle. Its design will be fundamentally different from the famous Kalashnikov assault rifle (AK). AK itself is not completely written off from the accounts - it will be modernized in parallel with the new development.

According to Rosoboronexport CEO Anatoly Isaikin, there are about 100 million Kalashnikov assault rifles in the world, half of which are counterfeit, that is, there is no license, patent and intergovernmental agreements for their production.

      Yes, it's not just that. They abandoned the old - but there is no new. Generally. Purchases will stop, new ones will not be made or purchased, old ones will be shipped, but there will never be a new one, and we will be left without an army car.
      And it is still unknown what the new car will be (if any). A friend worked for me as a forester, so one day he brought in a video where he, on his "goat", pulls the American "Hammer" out of the mud (clients came to hunt, he drove by, and they followed - they sat down).
      In addition: "This is even good. The AI-72 is almost not produced, and the AI-92 is the most common brand" - Sivkov raves, or what? - the difference in price is very noticeable, what chichi to feed the new car 92nd? And again, the favorite situation is cuts and theft, which will take on very wild forms.

      And about the “Kalashnikov” (my favorite topic): the gas removal system is considered the most reliable today. "Brand new machine" - how is it? - with a free shutter, or what? :) Or a plasma rifle from Fant. novels?

      Insanity was strong ...

    Abandon the old without having anything new. It’s strange somehow. UAZ, of course, is not the peak of perfection, but it has a lot of positive qualities, about which no one needs to be told. Well, okay, I don’t like him, for example, but nothing was offered in exchange for the real one. Wait for 2015 to decide what to replace it with. And then how many years to wait until something appears in the army?

      "It is possible that these will be improved versions of the UAZ - UAZ-315195 Hunter."

      - I think it’s too early to write it off, put diesel, armor, strengthen the suspension and frame, maybe the transmission and shoes wider.

          The hunter ZMZ with a volume of 2,3 liters has a power of 67 hp. and a foreign one with a volume of 2,4 86 hp. Both of these, in my opinion, are not enough considering the armor power of these engines is clearly not enough. Now they shoot up to 2 with 180 liters, of course this is an army machine, but the engines are obviously needed more powerful.

          armor, reinforce the suspension and frame, can transmission and shoes wider. - and where is the hunter?

          PS 200 liter engine - is he carrying it in a trailer behind, right?

              I understand what you are talking about. According to reviews, the suspension does not hold a powerful engine and the car begins to crumble quickly. I think the chassis will still have to be strengthened, if they want contracts, and the domestic engine wouldn’t hurt to start it, it’s like coming from Toyota diesel engines.

    People. I still do not understand. Tell me. Am I correct think or not? Think for yourself. After all, they do very well.
    Fursik-kills education, Perdyuk-destroys the army, Golik-gets rid of medicine, Levitka, Chubik and many others under the guidance of the brave Batman and Robin (medveputov-liberalists) A SECOND RIPPED KAZNA. And according to some data of the stabilization fund, we no longer have it. For. corporate debt, the debt of our oligarchs to foreign banks is worth more than $ 500 billion. And, there are fears that medveputes will sacrifice a stabilization fund so that our strategic industries supposedly do not go into debt.

And the fact that you are completely dependent on a foreign supplier, and the fact that you drive another nail into the body of the Russian agro-industrial complex ... My friend, you need to think before writing such things.

    Well, it is clear that in the current state it is not necessary to buy an UAZ. Because TTX and everything else the trouble on wheels is the last century. But this does not mean that you need to quit everything and do nothing. After all, if you think about it, UAZ in the army is a commander-connected vehicle with increased cross-country ability. Every day, troops move on it. What will happen tomorrow? If there are no purchases?
    Will Gelentweigens be purchased for all parts? HA! HA! HA! Well, if only in separate selected units, where the brave generals serve! Drive to the cottage ...
    Here recently, defense contractors complained to Medved that Serdyuk was not paying orders. What for?
    Not a single general jerked over updating the state of cars (UAZ) and the prospects for new developments.
    I look at how many big-headed people we have, especially who are involved in trophy raids. Give people some money, they’ll make such a car, only then run it in a series.
    And, not one Gelik will stand next!

    Just a question! Who needs it there?

    the question is whether the new car will be as passable as the bobik. Because the UAZ is the same all-terrain vehicle, when necessary, becomes all-wheel drive. But on the other hand, a diesel engine would not be bad.

Sancho writes correctly, we have a lot of big-headed people. In fact, if you give them opportunities, production, technical, financial, they will develop and make such an all-terrain vehicle, "Hammer" did not stand nearby. Simplicity, reliability, durability.

    In the meantime, I have more respect for people like Kalashnikov, Kotov, Yarygin, Glushko and many others, all those who forged the defenses of our country with their labor, and not demagogy!

    This is psychology, worldview, thinking of these scum

    Far East. This happens all over the place, but now
    bad time and place - a scandal erupted. But nothing,
    all were released "in their own way ..." to other places of work.

    You give money for development, agree on the task, accept or
    no development, and then croak! In the late 50s, they switched
    from GAZ-67 to GAZ-69. By the way, the military during the transition from the GAZ-69
    UAZ-469 had a lot of questions, but then everything somehow
    settled down in working order.

    in order to unravel everything, a big mind is not necessary - some excuses "inefficient" "out of date" "morally outdated." And about the way, in the 20s, Yakovlev (aircraft designer) in the bed workshop began. what - inefficient? and Antonov launched models and gliders (outdated and morally obsolete) only 20 years later, one began to make quite modern front-line fighters, the other - landing gliders, and a little later - transport aircraft. to grow more from the small, it must be cultivated. this requires, first of all, political will. but only screeches are heard. Although, whoever heard about the Iranian auto industry? or Mexican, but it does exist. Yes, cars of the 40-50s are produced. in comparison with them - Lada just the top of perfection. and do not scream that everything needs to be closed.
    And with regard to Russia - well, after all, it was already relatively recently. I in 1985 worked at a military factory. we collected stuffing for fighters. and I remember the conversation - the head of the shop once said that we have a five-year gap in terms of elemental base from the Japs. they say that he would catch up and overtake. Further more. Now on the site of the plant is a shopping and entertainment center. Doesn’t resemble anything? and now again the bazaars are about lagging and inefficiency. only the goal will no longer catch up and overtake, but simply merge everything and buy someone else's.
