Innovation Day of the Southern Military District: Ural-VV armored car

At any exhibition there are not only new exhibits, but also samples already known to the public. At the recent exhibition “Innovation Day of the Southern Military District”, the industry and the Ministry of the Interior presented a promising Ural-VV armored car. This machine has long been known to specialists and the public, but has not yet become a regular guest at various exhibition events.

The armored car "Ural-VV" was developed by the Miass automobile plant "Ural" in the framework of the program "Moto-2". The aim of the project was to create a promising protected vehicle with the wheel formula 6х6. The Ural-VV car was developed by request of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and intended for operation in divisions of internal troops. It is this feature of the project that was rendered in its name in the form of the letters “BB”.

A promising armored car was first shown at 2013 at the Russia Arms Expo in Nizhny Tagil. In the future, the armored cars "Ural-VV" were repeatedly demonstrated at other events. The list of exhibitions in which the exposition was present "Ural-BB", recently entered the "Day of Innovation of the Southern Military District". Thus, thanks to regular participation in exhibitions, the promising armored car for the internal troops of the Ministry of Internal Affairs was widely known among specialists and the public.

Ural-4320 truck chassis was chosen as the base for the armored vehicle "Ural-BB". This machine went into production a long time ago and was well mastered by the operators, due to which it can be a very convenient and successful base for military and special equipment. The all-wheel drive three-axle chassis is equipped with a JMZ-536 diesel engine with 270 horsepower. Such a power plant in combination with a transmission that provides transmission of torque to all three axes allows the car weighing up to 18,3 t to reach speeds of up to 90 km / h.

The car "Ural-VV" is equipped with an armored hull, divided into the engine compartment and the habitable compartment. The crew and troops are located in the total volume, which facilitates embarkation and disembarkation. The armored hull of the vehicle is designed to protect the crew and units from small arms. weapons and splinters. Inhabited compartment has the protection of 5 class according to domestic standards. Such a reservation can withstand a fire from small arms caliber to 7,62 mm.

Own protection also received the engine, gearbox and a number of other units of the machine. Thus, the engine is located inside a casing that meets the 3 protection class. A decorative plastic hood is installed over the engine armor.

A prospective armored car can carry up to 3 tons of cargo. Its main task is to transport personnel. In front of the habitable volume are the driver and commander. Behind them, along the sides, are installed 15 more chairs for the landing. Thus, in the existing configuration, the Ural-VV transports fighters with weapons to 16, not counting the driver.

For landing, the commander and driver have their own side doors. At the disposal of the landing there is a door on the starboard side and two stern doors. For more convenience, the landing of a relatively high machine under the side doors have steps. Aft doors, in turn, are equipped with a folding ladder. In the stowed position, it rises by means of a pneumatic cylinder and is fixed in this position. Before landing it should be lowered. In addition, several hatches are provided in the roof of the troop compartment.

According to reports, as early as in 2013, the Ministry of Internal Affairs ordered a new batch of 10 armored vehicles from the Ural automobile plant. This order was completed several years ago. The cars of the first batch were transferred to some divisions of the internal troops of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. Currently, all ten armored cars are being tested in the North Caucasus. There is information about the participation of such equipment in collisions with the enemy. Militants tried unsuccessfully to attack one of the machines with the use of small arms. The armored car received some damage, but the crew was not injured: it was protected by armor and glass.

Recently it became known that the Ministry of the Interior is currently working on the adoption of the Ural-VV vehicle for supply. After that, the full-scale serial construction of armored cars will probably start. In addition, there was information that the Ural plant offered its new development to the Ministry of Defense. The military version of the armored car is called the “Warrior”. His further fate has not yet been determined: the potential customer has not yet made a final choice. In the future, the first export contract is expected.

One of the ten existing armored vehicles "Ural-VV" was presented at the exhibition "Innovation Day of the Southern Military District". We present a photoreview of the shown armored vehicle.

      Here. What you showed in the photo is much simpler .. And you can take out the kung from the body and cover it with an awning ... in general, use it more flexibly ... and more loopholes-windows - count for each fighter (and even on a new one-volume car what is the back of the seat overlaps ..) .. Yes, and they sit facing the sides .. Yes you go out - first in the back, and then on the step. One trouble - there is no Conder, there is nothing to say - the cant is so cant. Well, the seats are the most common benches .. no mine action. to the ceiling fasteners ... this is also not ice ..

    Apparently "Typhoons" are a little expensive .. The only thing that surprised me was the low carrying capacity of 3 tons, and the obviously derated engine of 270 l / s .. Again, I was not pleased with the lack of regular places and fastenings for the property and equipment of the fighters. Well, that's what prevented me from making boxes of lockers along the sides outside (on the latest version of Typhoon-U we already had them) and nets, belts from inside the body. And finally got rid of the inner camouflage upholstery "gouge out".

    Armchairs look flimsy. After all, a fighter in the armor and unloading weighs, perhaps, over a hundred - can he endure a pokatushka seat over bumps with such a load? Protection from undermining from below (shock-absorbing elements), as I understand it, is not provided?

    But will not the soldiers hung with equipment cling to the numerous open rods and springs of the door locking mechanisms when landing?
    1. Andrey77
      Andrey77 7 October 2015 12: 32
      Will be. But there may have been a condition - the entire drive of the locking mechanisms should be in sight. In a burning box (if appropriate) time will not remove the skin. Why didn’t they use the ramp (as in landing planes / ships), but they made the doors? This is also a question.

        I support! But all the same, all this crap with drives could be closed with an easily removable screen. In general, there is some strange feeling when you look at all these "delights" of engineering. For example, a solution with a spare wheel - even during service in the early 70s, in our Urals 377, 375, the spare wheels were on brackets with a hydraulic drive. The wheels are heavy, but everything was controlled by one handle, raise - lower no problem. And here is just a masterpiece, a staircase with a pneumatic drive, and a spare wheel .... especially touches the cable around the ramp smile To climb, to look in more detail, perhaps there are a lot of mistakes you can find.

          Operated the Ural -375, so I know firsthand how it rises
          Quote: Bayonet
          everything was controlled by one handle, raise - omit no problems
          (falls under its own weight) This is subject to a running engine and a working hydraulic system. Try to perform this manipulation on a DON'T WORKING ICE - you will tear your stomach. Hence the conclusion: in the event of damage to the car, one person can eliminate the malfunction of the internal combustion engine, the second is engaged in replacing the wheel - time gain is obvious.
          In the late eighties, working on imported equipment, for the first time I came across a design for lifting a spare wheel using a mechanical winch (almost like in the photo) - believe me, it’s many times more convenient and reliable. Over
          Quote: Bayonet
          especially touches the cable around the ramp

          especially do not be moved, try first - the spare wheel is "centered" with this scheme at a time!
          I would also give up the pneumatic cylinders, in the event of an explosion (which the manufacturer wants to "protect" from), the cylinder rod may be skewed. And that's it .... how to get out of the car when the doors are blocked by raised stairs ??? am Through the "front" doors, through the hatch, and if there is a fire, and if the car overturned, "fell over" on its side?

    Armor protection is insufficient, at least 6a is needed, ideally from 12.7 B-32. Explosion resistance is not indicated if less than 6-8 kg (152 mm projectile) is also weak. Embrasures with windows are not needed; it would be better to mount observation devices of the BTR type. This is not an armored personnel carrier, but transport; start firing, you need to drape faster, and not shoot back. If you really want to, they would put the gun upstairs like on BPM 97.

      Well, for this, there must be a loot, and 2-I armor is an economical option ...
      explosion resistance - 6 kg in t / e (declared) ..
      and front solid windshield ...

      probably wrote a million times, make / buy in conjunction with South Africa, BBM with mine protection on the nodes and units of domestic cars .... what's the problem ???? the whole world uses South African technology ...
      but WE, B ****, as always, go our way ....

          5-seater with an armored cab (armored capsule) and unarmored engine and cargo compartments, the fuel tank also had no protection and was moved outside the rear axle ... ((such an Oshcosh JLTY lineup, for weight loss, without reducing protection and mobility)))

    Weight BTR-152, 8 tons. Frontal projection holds shells of 20mm guns. This weight is 15 tons, and it only holds automatic bullets, and that’s not a fact, the windshield is very large. I’m generally silent about the price of this unit. Take an armored personnel carrier 152, put in it a modern engine of horses for 300-400, an automatic transmission, increase the reservation to the weight of the car up to 15-20 tons. And you can get a good car. and relatively not expensive. There must be a carrying armored housing, not a frame

    The idea is excellent, the embodiment - as always, however, I would like to think that with proper refinement, the family of these machines will become the "workhorse" of the RF Armed Forces, although, of course, the sight glasses and loopholes covered with a headrest suggest thoughts about dissertations on the topic "The influence of an infinitely long electromagnetic a wave propagating in an ideal vacuum to infinitely faithful colleagues "
