Innovation Day of the Southern Military District. Armored car "Lynx"

32
A few years ago, one of the main topics of controversy was the purchase of Italian Iveco LMV armored cars. Despite the lack of consensus among specialists and the public, the military department still signed a contract for the supply of such equipment. LMV armored cars were assembled at a Russian enterprise for some time and delivered to the troops. Equipment for the Russian armed forces received a new name - "Lynx". Since the beginning of deliveries, Lynx armored cars have been repeatedly shown to the public. For example, 5 and 6 of October, such a machine “worked” as an exhibit at the “Innovation Day of the Southern Military District” exhibition in Rostov-on-Don.


Armored car LMV was developed by the Italian company Iveco and was put to the test at the beginning of the last decade. In the future, this machine has successfully passed all the checks and was adopted by the Italian army. In addition, the military of other countries became interested in this technique, resulting in the appearance of several export contracts. For obvious reasons, the contract for the supply of vehicles to the Russian armed forces has become the most famous in our country.

The LMV / Lynx armored vehicle is a special protected vehicle designed to solve a wide range of tasks, primarily related to the transportation of personnel and small loads. In addition, such a technique can be used to patrol specified areas, to escort convoy, reconnaissance, etc. operations. The range of tasks performed significantly expands the possibility of installing special types of equipment or weapons of various types on the machines.



The machine has a complex of ballistic and mine protection. Taking into account the peculiarities of military conflicts of the last decades, the “Lynx” is equipped with armor that protects against small arms. weapons various types, and also has a number of features aimed at protecting against explosive devices. In particular, a special hull frame and crew seats are used, which absorb part of the explosion energy. The design of the armored car provides for the possibility of installing additional protection modules.

The armored car is equipped with a Italian-made Iveco F1 C diesel engine, which develops power up to 190 hp. An automatic gearbox is connected to the engine. With a total mass at the level of 7 T, this powerplant allows the machine to reach speeds of up to 130 km / h. The armored car can carry five people, including the driver or 2,3 tons of various goods. The weight of the towed trailer exceeds 4 t. For the carriage of goods in the rear part of the hull there is a special compartment with access through its own rear and side doors.

The crew and troops are placed in a common cabin on special "anti-mine" chairs. The crew seats have a special design that absorbs part of the energy of the blast wave when driving an explosive device. In addition, the seats are equipped with five-point straps with quick release locks. An interesting feature of the seats is the specific shape of the back, through which the weight of the fighter's gear is transferred to the seat, reducing the load.

The “Lynx” armored car can be equipped with various weapons and special equipment. For the installation of weapons proposed to use the sunroof, above the rear seats. Foreign operators of Italian-made armored vehicles actively use this opportunity.

The first information about the possible purchases of Iveco LMV armored cars for the Russian armed forces appeared in 2009. Then several of these machines were purchased for testing at Russian landfills. In 2010, two more finished machines were purchased, as well as several assembly kits. The assembly of these armored cars was carried out at the KamAZ plant. In the middle of the same year, the armored car “Lynx” was adopted by the Russian army, after which the production of this vehicle was launched.

It was originally planned that by 2016, the armed forces would receive 1775 armored cars. Later it was mentioned that the army needed about 3 thousand such machines. At the end of 2011, an agreement was reached on the production of armored cars at a joint venture in Voronezh. Over time, it was planned to increase the localization of production - about half of the components had to be produced in Russia.

In January, 2013, the leadership of the armed forces announced that in the future the assembly and purchase of “Rysy” would be discontinued. The troops will continue to operate the received machines, but additional contracts for the supply of equipment will not be signed. The further production of licensed armored cars was decided to be abandoned in favor of the construction of own-developed equipment.

Armored vehicles of the type LMV / Lynx entered service with various units of all military districts. One of the vehicles operating in the Southern Military District recently arrived at the exhibition “Innovation Day of the Southern Military District”, where it became one of the exhibits available for inspection.


The armored car has a recognizable appearance and a characteristic grille with a relief name.



Winch located in front of the grille



Large windshield provides good visibility.



The machine has two pairs of side doors for embarkation and disembarkation.



Door handles have an unusual design



Despite the small height of the armored car, there are footboards under the doors.



Behind the doors are hatches for access to the cargo compartment



In the roof there is a hatch for installing weapons

      Civilian version !? This is the same "junk" that our Defense Ministry recognized as a mistake. Dviglo and transmission are supplied from IVECO factories, according to the "black box" principle, that is, service and supply of spare parts, exclusively at the manufacturer. Such an "innovation", an analogue of the "Mistral", is not necessary, expensive and extremely limited in terms of repair. Let the Serdyukov team ride like mushrooms on the Lynx. Sincerely.

      Not the guys that we argue and criticize? The car was purchased, the money was spent, the series was limited to over 300 pieces (on time). Now they are trying to shake them off quietly, spotted in Syria. The car fought in Afghanistan, showed itself to be a complete "g" (buried alive riders who could not get out on their own), the protection is good, but it is completely zero from land mines. The engine is weak, and there are big problems with the box. In general, the car ride in the city. Who does not believe I advise you to watch the program "Polygon", there this machine could not climb a small hill, as it went in Afghanistan, it is not clear.

      Partially purchased in Italy, and the bulk was to be made in Voronezh, where production was organized. So there are no 3000 BA purchased in Italy.

        In Voronezh, they would collect armored hulls, everything else (bridges, boxes, engines from Italy). So no need. We already passed a screwdriver with imort.

    The car is good, but a big BUT not ours, although probably it was she who became the impetus for the development of their armored cars, which are no worse, and some are even better, it is indicative that these armored cars were sent to Syria, I think what would "give" the Syrians this right

      The seats are anti-overload - they distribute the load when the car is blown up or overturned (the form is taken from motorsport and saves the spine from damage) the seats are also equipped with four to five point belts (you sit in a cocoon). The seats themselves are not mounted directly on the floor. And on special racks that would not deform when undermined.

    And rightly so. His technique must be developed and acquired. By giving their citizens the opportunity to earn. And do not feed someone else's economy.

    We have a whole line of cars for this purpose:

      They did not create a single similar car that would go into the series.

    Everyone here does not like either the lynx or Serdyukov, and there is a reason. But also do not forget that our industry began to stir more intensively as soon as it was made clear that they were not shy to buy foreign. The quality must be kept at the world level and higher, and not at the classic "unparalleled world".

    You can, of course, tell an interesting version (Old26) that Serdyukov is a talented manager who, according to a "cunning plan", torn apart a flawed Soviet army, created a new one - and Shoigu came to the ready-made.
    But then the question is - why should Iveco, pasta trendsetters in rags, not in armored vehicles, and in my opinion if you buy the best, then the Swiss Eagle 4 MOWAG (GDELSG) is preferable, the Germans at least bought it.
    I think the "talented manager" has confused his personal coat with the state one :-)
    "Tiger" and "Lynx" have already been compared many times - in my opinion, our car has an order of magnitude (in the binary system) more advantages.
    Well, the assembly of an imported designer is three times more expensive than domestic "Tigers".
    Where the Tigers are - there the Lynxes do not dance.

    A strange design ... How can fighters ride rough terrain in it? The rear passengers have a pipe structure in front, closely. And these visors of armchairs near the head. To get out, you need to lean forward and crawl with the letter Zyu ... Buckle up? Like in a cocoon so that it doesn’t beat about the armature. So if it hurts or the car stops abruptly after being blown up by a land mine or due to engine damage, look for these damn fasteners, lean forward, open the door ... I do not envy those who ride in such a gas chamber.

    I don't understand why these cars were bought. I do not understand why it was necessary to make the Lynx nameplate, this is misleading people. I believe that the people in the office mine are 70% enemies of the people and for such a purchase you need to send someone on a stage or something more serious.
