Innovation Day of the Southern Military District: the typhoon armored car

20
On the Innovation Day of the Southern Military District, which took place on October 5-6, the Ministry of Defense and Industry presented a large number of various equipment, including several new products. So, one of the first public demonstrations of the perspective Typhoonenok armored car took place in Rostov-on-Don the other day. This machine is another representative of the "Typhoon" family and is designed to solve a wide range of transport and combat tasks.


As previously reported, the Typhoonenok armored car was developed by the KAMAZ auto-building company with the widest use of existing components and assemblies. It is based on the KamAZ-53949 truck chassis with the wheel formula 4х4. On the chassis is mounted the armored case of the original design, which is based on the achievements of the existing projects of the Typhoon project. In particular, some details of the Typhoonenok armored car were directly borrowed from the Typhoon-K car of the same developer.

Being a further development of the existing family, “Typhoon” has smaller dimensions in comparison with the existing equipment and other characteristics. Inside its armored corps there are ten seats for the crew and the landing: four (including the commander and driver) are facing forward along the way, the other six are located in the aft troop compartment, at the sides. The payload of the machine is 2 t.



The design of the perspective armored vehicle uses modern combined protection based on metal sheets and ceramic elements. According to the developer, “Typhoon” has a ballistic 3 level protection according to the NATO standard STANAG 4569. Combined armor protects the crew from the armor-piercing bullets of the 7,62X54 R cartridge. Also, the design of the vehicle includes measures aimed at providing protection against explosive devices. The anti-mine protection of an armored vehicle complies with 3a and 3b class of the same standard. The crew of the car does not suffer fatal damage when 8 kg of TNT is exploded under the wheel or under the bottom of the car.

The typhoon armored vehicle is equipped with a Cummins 6ISBe 350 diesel engine with 350 horsepower. The structure of the transmission includes an automatic transmission, transfer boxes and other equipment. The existing power plant and transmission allows an armored car with a maximum weight of up to 14 t to reach a speed of up to 105 km / h on a highway.

New armored car can be used to solve various problems. First of all, it is the transportation of personnel or small loads, as well as escort convoy. In addition, after some refurbishment, an armored car may become an ambulance, reconnaissance, command and staff, or a different class of vehicle. Thus, the purpose of a particular machine depends primarily on the wishes of the customer and the appropriateness of the required modification.

It is reported that all work on the armored car "Typhoon" has already been completed. Probably, now the company-developer is ready to sign contracts for the supply of such equipment, build it and transfer to customers. Information about the possible orders of armored cars of the new model are not yet available.

At the exhibition "Innovation Day of the Southern Military District" one of the first armored cars of the new type was shown. The exhibition organizers opened all the doors of this car, and also kindly allowed everyone to not only inspect it outside and inside, but also to “try” the crew seats and workplaces. We present to your attention the photos of the armored vehicle located in the exhibition hall.

    And where is the import substitution?

      Here we observe the opposite phenomenon. Those units that should initially have been domestic (the technological level of our developments quite allows) are replaced by imported ones.
      For the RUSSIAN army, he is absolutely unsuitable. If only for export.
      By the way, the name "Typhoon" sucks. Completely artificial, sugary. Boo-eh ... Abomination.

    People, enlighten the illiterate, is it right that the armored car, and even carrying the whole compartment, has two axles? This is not a collection car for the city. Or are there nano mega wheels?

      What's the problem? As I understand it, most of the time this device should drive on roads, and not ride on an intersection. Well this is not an armored personnel carrier / infantry fighting vehicle, after all.

        On the roads in a peaceful city, a collection vehicle should drive and protect against armed attack. If this machine is for the same purpose - no question. Well, accompany another VIP person. And if this machine will still be sanitary and reconnaissance, then this is no longer a city and other conditions for survival.
        Or does “some conversion” mean adding another axis? Hardly, rather re-equipment of the cabin.

          And what gives another axis for survival? Of course, I am a purely couch special, but it always seemed to me that the number of axles is dictated by the load that the machine must carry. There is no need to put tons of load into the reconnaissance vehicle - BRDM-1/2 won on 4 wheels quite successfully ride. The sanitary history is the same (unless, of course, the task is to take out 20 people at a time).

    Of course, they came up with a tank well: in appearance, it is not covered by anything. It is necessary to paint in orange color, to be sure.

      Exactly. Moreover, it is accessible from two sides at once. The 120 degree sector is obtained for one tank, and also another.

    The development of a fig cloud, but for some reason it does not go beyond the armored Tiger.

      In my opinion there are three factors:
      1.Product Cost ...
      2.developed technology ...
      3. Undercover intrigues, who will be the supplier of armored vehicles for the ....

      that would BE to eliminate all this ... we need open TENDERS for the delivery of a certain type of armored vehicles for the Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Internal Affairs ((as in the whole world)))
      openness / transparency, choice according to the declared TTX, for the MO ... there is NO other way .....


      about the armored car, a good BBM, it’s a pity that there are not so many details in the KamAZ Typhunyonok: the American Cummins engine, the automatic transmission is also American Allison, the axles with independent suspension - Timoney from Ireland, the bulletproof Michelin tires, the supplier of expensive armor (aluminum on the outside, ceramics underneath) - Plasan Sasa from Israel, on the mine action seat belts - emblems of the English company Securon, headlights - Hella .., and then there are sanctions ... which will not be lifted ...

      is there a Belarusian independent suspension used on MZKT cars that they don’t put it ???
      and tires similar to Michelin are also available ....

      MZKT-6001 6x6, independent double wishbones suspension, with transverse leverage, coil springs serve as an elastic element ...

        armored "Tiger" is not going.


        and the “Tiger” is a good BBM, only modernization is needed, with enhanced mine protection ((and not necessarily a V-shaped bottom))) modern materials and technologies allow achieving acceptable mine resistance ...
        ThinSkin Armoring System

        Arabs from the UAE, upgraded their Tiger, made it a multi-purpose platform 4x4,6x6, both for transporting infantry and for mounting various weapons ...

        .. open tenders are needed for the delivery of a certain type of armored vehicles for the MO and BB


        But, like the bourgeois ???

        The Bushmaster armored car was developed as part of the Australian IMV program (Infantry Mobility Vehicle - infantry vehicle)

        the program was conducted on a competitive basis!!

        on The first stage of the competition was attended by 17 machines.

        for participation in the final / 2-th phase, the so-called short list included three armored vehicles: Ostralian Specialized Vick Systems with BBM Taipan, Wae Ostralia / Short c Foxhund and Perry Engineering c Bushmaster ....

        here is the competition .. and progress ...

          the Chinese are copying units and assemblies, power plants, etc., BUT on their technological base ...

          it turns out, great cars ...
          HOWO ATV truck 4x4, 6x6, 8x8, with independent suspension, any type of BBM can be developed on the chassis of this truck ....

    As always, I really "like" cars with American engines, with seats attached to the floor of the car, fuel tanks not covered by armor, lack of embrasures and windows that can withstand even 7 or even 14 bullet hits. I am very happy for the creators of this personal general’s car (it’s easy to get to the airport and back to the hotel on the highway!), They (the creators) have never been ambushed, didn’t listen to bullets and shrapnel strikes on their armor and didn’t see cracked from being hit bullets (fragments) of triplex. You don’t have to chase Euro-American trends in armor, our country has been fighting for a long time on its territory, the enemy (terrorists) are laying high explosives, setting ambushes, and there is no need to show any armored limousines at exhibitions. War is daily dirty and dangerous work, take care of your defenders!

    Well, nah. Such a machine with a foreign engine of the Russian army? Box, too, apparently foreign. Armor protection according to the NATO standard? Customers from MO, pass by. Only for export, like the T-90SM.

    With so many imported parts, the price tag will be Mama Do not Cry, and without the corruption component of the Ministry of Defense, in theory, she should not want to buy it.

    Those. the conclusion of a contract for the supply of this miracle to the troops should automatically attract the attention of the Investigative Committee - this is a tricky plan;)

    Damn, that’s why it seems to me that the fate of all the “typhoons” and other “hummocks” is the fate of the “shishigi” - yes, it’s needed, but very very little ... because it’s not a format ... because it’s eating like a KAMAZ and carries like a lawn ... and many many such because ....
    Although, of course, the interior, the cabin and the idea itself are very nice ..
