Special fire engine (SPM) is preparing for the first exercises as part of the fire-fighting equipment of the RF Armed Forces

The Russian army adopted a new fire equipment. We are talking about a special fire engine (SPM), created on the basis of tanks T-72 and T-80. The Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation Dmitry Bulgakov talks about the adoption of such equipment created at the Omsk plant of transport engineering (based on TASS materials) TASS):


A special fire engine was developed by the Main Rocket-Artillery Directorate of the Russian Ministry of Defense on the basis of the T-72 and T-80 tanks using their components and assemblies. It is designed to extinguish fires and rescue operations at arsenals, warehouses and bases for the storage of explosive substances, clearing aisles to fires, and laying firebreaks during forest fires.

Next Wednesday (May 27) SPM will demonstrate its capabilities at the exercises in the Novgorod region.

SPM has the ability to extinguish a fire from a distance of 100 m, while the extinguishing processes can be controlled remotely. SPM is equipped with four surveillance cameras and two thermal imagers, which allows the crew to have a circular review of the area and identify fires at a significant distance.

The metal case is covered with a special refractory layer, which can maintain fire resistance for 2-x hours. If this layer is in contact with an open flame, a chemical reaction begins, increasing the layer in volume up to several dozen times. As a result, additional foam protection is obtained, which ensures minimal thermal conductivity. This allows the SPM to work while being directly in the fire center for its most effective localization with equally effective extinguishing.

The total mass of SPM is about 60 tons. The fire tank, as the manufacturers call the car themselves, is protected by removable armored screens as well as an armored cabin. Armored elements protect the crew from bullets and debris from a ground explosion. The maximum protection is against the expansion of elements of the 152 caliber fragmentation projectile mm.

The volume of water and other fire extinguishing agents is 25 cubic meters. SPM is equipped with a wedge-shaped blade for clearing the area and creating special firebreaks.

    Our Ministry of Emergency Situations in Khakassia would have such a purchase, but not one!

      Our government would get ministers with brains! A decade and a half ago, gunsmiths (I do not remember which design bureau), after conversion, created an aerial bomb filled with water to extinguish fires. According to the test results, extinguishing fire centers in terms of time and area could be reduced significantly. The mass-dimensional characteristics of these bombs corresponded to the standard armament used on our aircraft. Engage ground attack aircraft for extinguishing and here's the effect - and the fires will be extinguished and additional training for pilots !!!

        ... it seems there was not water, but a foamy-water mixture.

        Even earlier, the Ministry of Emergencies was offered an armored vehicle with an inert gas-water-jet jet generator.

        The gas-vapor mixture in inert gas generators of the GIG type is obtained as a result of the combustion of aviation kerosene in a 1 turbojet engine, followed by "afterburning" of the exhaust gas oxygen in the 2 afterburner and cooling them with finely atomized water in the 3 cooling chamber. The gas-vapor mixture cooled to 80 ° C and oxygen-depleted to 2-3% is usually delivered to the fire source or to the bottom of the dead-end mine through the ventilation pipe directly through the VMP, which ventilates the emergency engine. The operation of the gas generator is carried out remotely using the 4 remote control, which has a locking system.

          Such generators are used in mines, based on a helicopter engine!

        Assault aviation is certainly good, but it's all about the price. Much more effective is simply a sufficient number of fire engines and sensible leadership in the region and in the field. And yet, with our downsizing, and savings in all state. structures, including fire service, professionals less and less, more and more bureaucracy!

      Most likely, we need a new fire fighting equipment.

      Perhaps, but 60 tons, it is still weight and significant, not every bridge, especially in the forest, can withstand it ...

        There are practically no large rivers in the forests, and the rest can be crossed next to the ford bridge.

          Well, you just said stupidity, as if you do not live in Russia, have you heard about such a forest called Taiga? And in the European part of the river bottom for frequent muddy, this is how this "monster" gets stuck in this muddy bottom, when crossing the ford, then the crew will remember these 60-tons with a "strong" word.

        I remember there was such a development, even mine was released in the USSR, to extinguish reservoirs and oil storage facilities, there was also a wheeled version

      I am glad that they began to use military developments for civilian purposes. good

    An interesting machine, we have so much more modern warfare ammunition that even a small fire can lead to tragedy.

    Seven ice rinks, like in Almaty. The dump, it seems to me, should be carried forward a little more, as in the BAT and IIR. And so the car is needed. And a volume of water of 25 cubes is decent.

    Dear, please write nonsense, for what forest fires? For warehouses with a b / w yes a necessary thing, but for forestry it is complete nonsense (delivery of the machine itself, no efficiency, delivery of water and fuel, and it is gluttonous, in order to "miss the dump and extinguish, if a local focus still turns out, it is expensive and does not meet the requirements, for forest fires you need equipment like lumberjacks, it can drive everywhere, the load on the ground is small, here you need to work, besides, how many people say give at least one to the village a motor pump that can be attached to any car and rolled away by hand, we do not have the Ministry of Emergency Situations "coolest", by the way, there was already the same article about this unit and why repeat?

    Just one such machine was missing on the Maidan, you see, there would be no war.
