TOSA on training. Photo report

Transport-loading machine, which is part of a heavy flame-thrower system.

This photo is interesting because in the row of cars we see from the right a very rare "beast" - a heavy armored personnel carrier BMO-T on the chassis tank T-72

It is worth recalling that the heavy flamethrower system TOC-1А was developed and produced at the Design Bureau of Transport Engineering (Omsk), which is part of the Scientific and Production Corporation "Uralvagonzavod". Currently, in addition to supplies to the Army of the Russian Federation, TOC-1 began to disclose its export potential - the first three combat vehicles were delivered to the Army of the Republic of Kazakhstan.

    A good car, develop the ammunition further and do not need anything else, the Chinese tanks are not scary. Thermoboric ammunition in fine weather is a thing!
    In Syria, I’d shoot a heel once and back home, for a show, and home, so as not to be stolen.

    It is worth recalling that the TOS-1A heavy flamethrower system is designed and manufactured

    Nichrome it is not produced (not counting as many as 3 pieces in Kazakhstan) ... for the entire Russian army it seems only 10 pieces and there is .. nothing is heard about any additional deliveries ..

    a good spiritual thing, but the firing range is small, it would be necessary to increase it by 2–3 times and go.
