PTS-4 floating conveyors will replace outdated versions

30
Amphibians PTS-4, produced by the Omsk Transport Engineering Plant, are today considered the best in their class and are designed to replace the existing PTS-M, PTS-2 and PTS-3 of Lugansk Diesel Locomotive Plant, the agency writes Messenger of Mordovia.

PTS-4 floating conveyors will replace outdated versions


For the first time this machine, which is in service with the engineering troops, was demonstrated at the Army-2015 forum.



"PTS-4, created using nodes tanks T-80 and T-72, designed for crossing various water obstacles of various types of military equipment: towed artillery, cars, armored personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles- informs the agency.



Machines can also be used to rescue people during natural disasters, for example, when
flood



"The weight of the conveyor is more than 33 tons. Load capacity - up to 18 tons. Engine power - 840 hp The maximum speed of movement on the highway - to 60 km / h and 15 km / h - on the water surface. Power reserve - more than 580 km by land. On the water the car can move more than 10 hours. Crew - 2 person. Armament - large-caliber 12,7-mm remote-controlled machine gun with ammunition in 400 shots- leads the publication of the characteristics of the amphibian.

      I’m wondering all the time how this stupid 33 tons weigh can not only swim, but also carry loads on itself!

        The machine is needed and in demand! When we go along Geyrop, they will blow up bridges there, and that is great! Suddenly out of nowhere appeared ... (PTS-4) hurt yourself!

            And also floating trailers can be used with PTSs. When such a "fool" flies along the track, this is something ... We know, they served, "flew")))

        Along the way, in contrast to the same "two", apart from partial booking, it is also distinguished by a dvigun of 840 mares ... And for this dvigun, unambiguously, a new transmission is also needed.
        And if there are also some "chips" on the management piled on - generally a fairy tale)))

        She and the "deuce" are different from the "emki" like a Mercedes from a vase, I hope the "four" will be a range sport wink

      What’s impressive here, I’m not a welder, and then I see only shoals! There are no such seams - is this a technical training practice?

        Judging by the appearance, the hinged screens are from some kind of composite. And the quality of the welds along the body, indeed, as if at the factory of the blind they did. During the service he exploited the PTS-M - there was a completely different picture.
        Over time, poor-quality welding will make itself felt by areas of increased corrosion, leaks, etc. The military will still say their "thanks" to the Omsk bunglers.

          Try to weld two thin sheets in a joint .. You will learn a lot of new words .. they will come to your mind)))

            There, according to the technology, the plate should have seams on both sides along the side and internal. What is the "joint"? the car must walk on water with waves up to 3 points! If "end-to-end" - tryndets at the first breeze! Itself did not have to flop off the ramp into the cool wave and shove at full speed to the coast of 700-900 meters ???

            What are two thin sheets, have you seen the board of this car ???

    I like it and it makes me happy that we are actively using the process of interchangeability, which, by the way, has been going on since Stalin's time. For example, cigarettes were produced by a well-known caliber. And in the event of war, cigarette factories instantly reoriented to the production of cartridges.

    Good thing, just not to force rivers under enemy fire. They need floating armored personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles. With a reservation that allows holding at least large-caliber bullets. In modern warfare, tanks on their banks of the river are capable of boosting the river with floating equipment, knocking out armored vehicles and anti-tank artillery on the other bank. But the machine guns of all calibers and the gunner will not get out. Like AGSs. Because this machine is good, and if it has at least some kind of armor, suitable for the forces of the second echelon. Judging by her type of armor, she doesn’t have one and PTS-4 is afraid of everything: bullets and fragments.

      Two, for the knowledge of the mathematical part. The PTS-4 crew cabin is armored.



      And besides, there is also a ZPU with a 12,7 mm machine gun. For self defense.

        And the cabin is not important. Yes, I do not know this materiel. But from your answer it is clear that the hull is not armored makes its way with anything without hitting.

        Yeah. There is. Only here is the point ... when forcing rivers along the swimming routes, artillery fires. And fragments fly. Plus, machine guns and shooting with infantry on the shore. Cabin - to hell with her. Fragments of shells and mines can easily penetrate an unarmored side and sink. It can also be drilled from small arms and machine guns with AGS. If the body is perforated, the armored cabin will help the crew drown.

        Just try to guess the chances of this "PTS-4" to get to the other side in conditions when:
        1 - there is a barrage artillery fire from artillery systems with a caliber of 105 mm and 155 mm. They give a lot of shards.
        2 - from the shore there is a fire from the gas station, which, when broken in the water, also gives fragments.
        3 - from the coast there is shooting and machine guns and machine guns.
        And everyone wants to sink floating equipment.
        Well, well - with machine guns and riflemen you can still try to fight with a machine gun and hope that you will not be shot at by an unarmored side and not sunk. And what to do with fragments of artillery shells and AGS?

        Before you minus me and put deuces you need to turn on the brain and think about why I wrote what I wrote.

      Exactly!

      This is true. And why would she need armor? This car is not for the advanced. The sides of the TCP are made of tin. Only the wheelhouse is slightly armored from shrapnel. The glasses are thickened (with heating filaments) and are closed with armor plates. Let's book this car and it won't "swim across" itself)))

    Their management is heavy ... But the seaworthiness qualities are very good ... the technique is quite suitable not only for rivers, but also for crossing narrow straits and bays ... I don't know how now, but a little earlier PTS-ki were used by sailors with might and main for delivery cargo from ships to polar stations, for example, or just to get to the coast from the roadstead .. I know a case when at -50 people three of them changed the box on the PTS-ke "in the open air" .. they had two cars at hand for warming up aircraft engines ...

    Luganskteplovoz hasn’t let them out for a long time, unfortunately ... Last summer, mothballed since the 90s, the militia last year sheathed 5mm metal sheets and put them on the Lugansk-Happiness highway, under the Metalworker ... So the most interesting thing is that they wound up, as they say with half a turn ... On some there were no starters, they were turned on with compressed air

      Somehow, I started and drove a tank (T-62) into the landfill in which there were no batteries. The engine started up with air: the electric valve for supplying air to the engine is located to the left of the driver and is fully included in the manual (a small lever on the valve)
