Innovation Day of the Southern Military District: BTR-82AM armored personnel carrier

53
In the foreseeable future, the Russian armed forces will continue to operate BTR-80 armored personnel carriers and other vehicles based on them. At the same time, the military department intends to update the fleet of such armored vehicles through the construction of new armored personnel carriers and the modernization of existing ones. As part of the armored vehicles fleet renewal program, a project for the modernization of the BTR-82AM was developed several years ago. To date, the defense industry has mastered the production of this technology on the basis of the available vehicles BTR-80. Not so long ago, one of the new type of armored troop-carriers was shown at the “Innovation Day of the Southern Military District” exhibition.


Projects of the BTR-82 family, including the BTR-82AM, were created at the end of the last decade. Their goal was to further develop the existing technology through the use of new components, equipment and weapons. The project BTR-82AM aims to update the fleet of vehicles through the repair and modernization of existing machines. According to this project, it was proposed to retool serial machines of the type BTR-80 with the installation of a new engine, combat module, etc. All this should have led to a serious increase in performance and combat effectiveness.

After upgrading the BTR-82AM retain the main goals and objectives of the base machine. This technique is designed to transport personnel and provide fire support during the battle. In this case, the machine has a number of new equipment, which facilitates the operation and to some extent improves its fighting qualities.



The most serious improvements are the elements of the power plant, transmission and chassis. Upgraded armored personnel carriers receive a KAMAZ-740.14 300 diesel engine with 300 horsepower. In addition, the transmission is being finalized and the chassis is reinforced. During the modernization of the armored car noticeably heavier. Weight gain is offset by a new engine and enhanced suspension.

The total mass of the BTR-82AM reaches 15,9 tons. Despite this, the car can reach speeds up to 80 km / h on the highway. There is still the possibility of crossing water obstacles by swimming with the help of the existing jet propulsion unit. Thanks to the engine of increased power, the armored personnel carrier is still able to climb the 30-degree slope, climb the wall with a height of 0,5 m and overcome other obstacles.

An important innovation of the project with the letters "AM" is an auxiliary power unit. To supply the onboard systems with electricity, a special low-power engine installed in the engine compartment can be used. This unit is designed to power communication systems, weapons, etc. in parking lots. If necessary, the crew can turn off the main engine, not spending fuel and its resource, but at the same time to maintain the energy supply of all major systems. Special equipment can be connected to the auxiliary power unit to provide electricity to third-party consumers.

BTR-82AM vehicles receive a combat module similar to that used on the BTR-80А. On the reinforced roof of the hull mounted turret assembly with machine-gun and artillery weapons. The main armament of the BTR-82AM is the 2-72 automatic gun of the 30 caliber mm. Also mounted on the turret is the PKTM machine gun in a separate armored casing. As an additional weapons the tower carries smoke grenade launchers.

In order to increase the security of the gun operator, his workplace is shifted down. Now it is located not in the tower, but under it. The control of weapons is carried out using the remote. At the same time, the workplace of the shooter is equipped with several viewing devices and other equipment for monitoring the situation.

The first armored personnel carriers of the BTR-82 family were built in 2009 year. Later they passed the tests and were transferred to some parts of the Southern Military District for trial operation. In 2013, the technique of new types was adopted. In the same year, a full-scale serial construction of new equipment was launched. According to previously published data, the serial assembly of armored personnel carriers BTR-82, including the BTR-82AM, was to continue until at least 2016.

According to some reports, last year the Ministry of Defense planned to send the BNR-120 machines for upgrading the 80 vehicles and receive instead BTR-82AM vehicles. The order for 2015 year was to make the 134 machines. The order of 60 armored personnel carriers of the new type must be received by the troops next year.

To date, BTR-82AM armored personnel carriers are in service with a large number of ground forces units. One of the machines of this type, operated in the Southern Military District, 5 and 6 of October was located in the pavilion of the exhibition complex “Vertol Expo” and was an exhibit of the “Innovation Day of the Southern Military District” exhibition. We present a photoreview of a promising armored personnel carrier.

      What for? Criminal defense, weak weapons ...

      The concept of using armored personnel carriers differs from the real use of them. And these machines were created for one purpose - the transportation of infantry after the tanks. And we use them as patrol cars. But there are tendencies to replace the APCs as patrol, the same Typhoons and Tigers.
      All of the above does not cancel the doctrine of the use of armored personnel carriers, and the need for its modernization. hi

      The weapon is just very good for armored personnel carriers, but the defense is not so hot if he is ambushed by any fly that pierces him. And let's not confuse armored personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles, if it is considered as an infantry fighting vehicle, it is indeed a very weak weapon.

      Protection is as ordered.
      For example, at the very beginning of the release of the Tigers, the military ordered a car with the 3rd protection class, and the Ministry of Internal Affairs - from the 6th. Got two different tigers. Then, after fighting with Lynx, the army also ordered a normal protection class

              In the winter of 1941, all the forces of the Red Army were thrown to the defense of Moscow against the enemy. Excess reserves were not at all. And they were required. For example, the sixteenth army, which was exsanguinated by losses in the area of ​​Solnechnogorsk.

              This army was not led by a marshal, but a desperate commander Konstantin Rokossovsky. Feeling that without a dozen cannons, the defense of Solnechnogorsk would fall, he turned to Zhukov for help. Zhukov refused - all forces were involved. Then the tireless Lieutenant-General Rokossovsky sent a request to Stalin himself. The expected, but no less sad, response was immediate - there was no reserve. True, Joseph Vissarionovich mentioned that there may be several dozen canned cannons that took part in the Russian-Turkish war. These guns were museum exhibits attributed to the Dzerzhinsky Military Artillery Academy.

              After several days of searching, an employee of this academy was found. An old professor, almost the same age as these guns, spoke about the place of conservation of howitzers in the suburbs. So the front received several dozen old cannons, which played an important role in the defense of the capital.

                The bike is everything. What role could several tens of old cannons play in the defense of Moscow? A lot of noise? Duc and without them it was noisy.
                In the Moscow direction, a band of about 800 km was defended by troops of the Western, Bryansk, and Reserve fronts, which numbered about 1 people, more than 10,5 thousand guns and mortars (of which about 1200 anti-tank), 1044 tanks. In addition, during the defense of Moscow, 21 militia divisions with a total of 200 people, 000 reserve divisions with a total of 14 people, 120 guard divisions of the airborne forces, 000 divisions withdrawn from Siberia were involved. Also - 6 tank divisions of incomplete composition, 9 separate tank battalions of incomplete composition. Also - Moscow air defense aviation as part of 2 air divisions.

    I agree with the Professor. Why upgrade a knowingly insecure machine? The armament was strengthened, but the armor remained at the same ridiculous level. Where can such a machine be sent? Unless in the explosives, they drove bombs in populated areas, where they do not have grenade launchers and heavy machine guns. If you plan to switch to “Almaty” and “Kurgan”, then the old armored personnel carriers must be put out of stock or painted and sold to those who still need such equipment.

            it would be foolish to hope only for the weather. Therefore, machines were purchased, and reserves of natural snow were made in special storages.
            But if there was a plus temperature, then only the capabilities of snow machines would be enough unless the kids were entertaining, but certainly not for holding international competitions.

            Of course, if it’s more convenient for you to think that without the Israeli snow machines the Sochi Winter Olympics would not have taken place, then for God's sake, think.

        The question was to carry out GOOD. And this was done. The opponents by the number of medals remained far in the ass. Let's not forget that while the oil was being prepared, it cost a hundred, which means there was no reason to save, there was enough money. Now there would still be a World Cup been through.....

    Because heating at minus 5 and at minus 35 are two big differences. And in the subtropics this should be done for 3 months and in the north 9.
    July in the Arkhangelsk region, you know whether the lathere may be +25, or maybe +10.

      Dear professor, you gave me advice here, so as not to freeze, let me give you advice. You wouldn’t travel to the Alps, and you would invest the saved money in a more modern computer with a screen. Your current one is apparently on punch cards, without a screen, and does not allow you to watch photos that I posted on this topic, answering your questions about this very snow.

    I wouldn’t be so categorical as a professor, but the direction of modernization of the machine’s tributary indicates an attempt to turn it into a light wheeled tank with the possibility of transporting infantry (in other words, IFVs are light rather than armored personnel carriers. For if you were going to make armored personnel carriers (which, as you know, parts to carry, and should almost not support it), then if you please correct the 80ki flaws just like armored personnel carriers, i.e., a tight landing, uncomfortable entry-exit, weak mine protection (the latter, at least by installing anti-reloading seats.)

    I think the overall BTR-82 lineup is flawed, the high silhouette of the combat module greatly unmasks the car, it is better that the main engine is located in the central part, the landing compartment is completely in the rear with the rear common large ramp going down, 2 emergency hatches from above + from below, central location armchairs for the landing, paratroopers should sit facing the sides (loopholes), fastening the seats to the top panel, and much more on the little things, but the BTR-82 is definitely not a solution, we need a new car ...

    Question to the experts.
    Why are there armored personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles simultaneously in the world?
    Yes, they have different tasks. The APCs are taken to the battlefield, and the BMP is involved in the battle. Well, people came to the armored personnel carrier to fight on this very battlefield, but where to get the BMP? So, someone should fit them there. Who! Where from? And why then push them empty, and bring people on armored personnel carriers. And where to hide armored personnel carriers during the battle? And after the battle, does the infantry transfer to the APC again? And what about BMP? And how to deal with unexpected turns of the situation? Deep breakthrough or, conversely, retreat? In short, I do not understand anything using these two types of machines. Please explain to the illiterate!

    I agree with the Professor. Why upgrade a knowingly insecure machine? The armament was strengthened, but the armor remained at the same ridiculous level. Where can such a machine be sent?

    The professor can hang out on the site as he wants, but whatever he says, it does not cancel the use of his country's armed forces as the main APC of the machine with equal protection and much worse weapons. I'm about the M-113. Which his country received in fact for free. And which by the way are vigorously and constantly modernizing.
    So ask him a question about simple Jewish guys who were burned in vain in tins. And where in this case did the money saved at the Olympics go.

    The weapon is just very good for armored personnel carriers, but the defense is not so hot if he is ambushed by any fly that pierces him. And let's not confuse armored personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles, if it is considered as an infantry fighting vehicle, it is indeed a very weak weapon.

    And if the tank is ambushed? This is an armored TRANSPORTER, that is, an armored vehicle, Transport! If a stupid commander throws this equipment to storm a fortified and well-armed point, then this is not the trouble of the machine’s designers, but of this commander and his subordinates. And protection against accidental bullets and fragments is sufficient.
