The Russian Defense Ministry has decided to create a unified machine "Gorets-O", which will be able to "rake debris, punch barriers and demining roads under enemy fire," the channel said LifeNews with reference to "Izvestia".

“Gorets-O” is a “large armored tracked vehicle equipped with machine guns, electronic warfare devices and the GLONASS system, in addition, it will also have an excavator bucket and a manipulator, a hydraulic hammer, a crane with a winch and other equipment,” informs the publication.

In addition to the crew (commander and driver), two sappers-paratrooper can be accommodated in the manned compartment of the vehicle.

“When carrying out engineering tasks, the Gorets O will be able to drive 600 kilometers without refueling to the required place and after that work for three hours with a capacity from 3 km / h to 15 km / h. When trawling mines with non-contact fuses - up to 6 km / h, ”the channel gives the characteristics of a car embedded in a tactical and technical task.

“Now new tools are being developed - they will make it possible to exclude on-foot engineering intelligence, which is conducted at a very low pace. According to the experience of Afghanistan and the fighting in the North Caucasus, this is 1-2 km / h, said military expert Viktor Murakhovsky. “New tools mounted on an armored base will allow to conduct engineering reconnaissance, without leaving the car, at a pace of 12 – 15 km / h.”

A characteristic feature of the new machine is a lighter base chassis (compared to current tracklayers), which will allow it to be transported on heavy Mi-26 helicopters and military transport aircraft. According to an informed source of the newspaper, specialists "are working on options for using the Kurganets-25 chassis, the BMP-3 chassis, and the possibility of creating a new one." The machine will protect the crew from rifle weapons and fragmentation damage.

A well-known Russian military expert Igor Korotchenko said in this connection: “Such development is needed, it’s time to replace the old generation. She will be in demand in the army. The main thing is to have enough money. ”

According to the newspaper, "experimental design work costing about 350 million rubles is calculated for three years." At 2017, tests of a prototype are scheduled, after which a decision will be made about the possibility of adopting the machine for service.

    "To clear away rubble, break through obstacles and clear roads under enemy fire."
    "The vehicle will protect the crew from small arms and shrapnel damage."

    Well, the enemy’s fire is not only in small arms ... a blockage is made and an ambush with ATGM, even with an RPG.

      This is an engineering training machine, not a BMP. The goals are completely different, booking in this case does not mean that the enemy’s trenches will equal it.

          What are the trenches, it must clear the way, for the same infantry fighting vehicles or tanks.

          Read the goals and objectives of the engineering troops:
          When preparing and conducting combined-arms operations (combat operations), the engineering troops perform the following main tasks:

          engineering reconnaissance of the enemy, terrain and objects;
          the erection (arrangement) of fortification structures (trenches, trenches and communications, shelters, dugouts, shelters, etc.) and the organization of field facilities for the deployment of troops (residential, economic, medical);
          construction of engineering barriers, including the installation of minefields, blasting operations, equipment for non-explosive barriers (anti-tank ditches, escarpes, counterscores, ridges, etc.);
          demining of terrain and objects;
          preparation and maintenance of troop movements;
          equipment and maintenance of crossings on water barriers, including the construction of bridges;
          extraction and treatment of water in the field and others.

          In addition, they are involved in countering the enemy’s intelligence and guidance systems (camouflage), imitating troops and objects, providing disinformation and demonstrative actions to deceive the enemy, as well as in eliminating the consequences of the use of weapons of mass destruction by the enemy.

          These cars do not go into battle ahead of tanks, I hope this is clear

    The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation decided to create a unified machine "Highlander-O", which will be able to "rake the rubble, punch barriers and clear roads under enemy fire"

    In short, a single machine instead of IMR and BMR.
    Highlander! Only one should be left! smile

      WRI early to resign. On it you can mount all this equipment and continue to operate quietly.
      Because a machine created on the basis of MBT having a mass of more than 40 tons, when clearing debris or laying columned tracks, it can better cope with this work than a machine weighing 20-25 tons.

      Based on the name "Highlander", it can be assumed that this engineering vehicle is being developed for operation in difficult terrain, for units of the rapid reaction forces.

      Denis hi You shouldn't be ironic. The landing party is not necessarily a parachute. And the "enemy" is not necessarily a soldier. (Maybe a gas pipeline on the enemy's territory, for example) During the Great Patriotic War, the first assault groups were composed of sappers. And the first "mortal medallions" "It was from them. And at the expense of" the construction battalion cannot surpass "- we have different tasks. BUT: we do one thing!

    And she will be able to grab a journalist-belolentochnik with a manipulator through the window, smash his legs with a hydraulic hammer, hang it on a winch, and then smear it with a bucket, while using electronic warfare tools to take out the server of the "publishing house" and shoot machine guns at the rest of the enemies through the windows? Wrap two at once!

    A cool product, but still safer on a tank chassis, the weight is then the weight, but the crew’s life and for whom it will conduct reconnaissance, clearance and passageways are more expensive.

    So far, at the moment, MO announced tender for the implementation of OCD to create a new model of engineering machine.
    Symbol - "Highlander-O".
    Full name: IDM "Road Engineering Machine".
    By November 2017, these works should be completed according to the submitted TTZ.
    And only then the construction of the prototype.

    Brief features:
    Cross BAT-2 and IMR-3, plus place this on the MIDDLE platform with a total weight of no more than 25t.
    Roughly speaking, it is planned to create a unified military engineering machine based on Kurganets-25.
    Need such a car? For parts that will have an average tracked vehicle in the state - of course you need it.
    Unification should be.
    By the way, it’s sappers who have a complete tear with equipment on a diverse base - there are REAL hard workers guys.
    In HMB there can be simultaneously equipment on MTLB, T-55, T-64, T-72. And the brigade itself is armed with the T-80BV ...
    lol
    ........

    This is in no way a replacement for the famous IMR.
    IMR is a beast based on a tank car.
    We need to be very strong friends with sappers in order to get this drop dead monster into the assault group, those who know me will understand.
    wink
    Just handsome )))
    Wonder car. This is the kind of technique we need to develop ... When it was impatient in Chernobyl, the workhorses were Turntables and IMRs.
    And in peace and wartime, such a machine is needed as air ...
    A car based on a tank - it is in Africa a car based on a tank.)))

      Removing the normal armor, like that of the IMR, it will be a fundamentally new machine, unable to operate "under enemy fire." Attaching a mine detector and, more or less, covering the crew with anti-fragmentation armor, thereby increasing the speed of engineering reconnaissance, is the main task. There can be no talk of a complete replacement of the IMR.
      And about the "famous Russian military expert" Korotchenko - a special conversation. In many matters, and in engineering in particular, he "experts" like a pig in oranges. Bubbles and throws slogans - that's the whole "expertise".
