Armored car "Varta" for the Ukrainian security forces

58
The head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, Arsen Avakov, in his “Facebook” reported on the upcoming entry into service of the National Guard and the police units of the CORD “Warta” (“Guard”) armored vehicles with enhanced mine protection. This is reported by the blog. bmpd.




“Before the New Year, we will get the first 10 armored vehicles. Manufacturer "Ukrainian armored vehicles" with the participation of Belarusian engineers, taking into account the requirements and technical specifications of the military officers of the ATO. After field trials, the decision will be taken on the purchase of a larger batch of armored vehicles, ”writes Avakov.

“By“ Ukrainian armored vehicles ”, it is probably meant the concern“ Armored vehicles of Ukraine ”based in Kharkov. This association was created in 1999, however, with the transfer of the main specialized Kharkov enterprises from its composition (KMDB, Malyshev Plant, etc.) at the end of 2006, the Ukroboronprom group of companies, Armored Machinery of Ukraine, dragged more than half-virtual existence, nominally including only a number of small enterprises, ”the blogger comments on the message.

“In view of this, the true origin of the Varta armored vehicle design is unclear, and, apparently, this was not originally a Ukrainian design,” he notes. - According to a number of Ukrainian sources, the car was developed with the participation of Belarusian developers and using the units of MAZ cars. The engine is also delicately denoted as "MAZ specification" (which, as you can guess, means JAMZ produced by the Yaroslavl engine plant Avtodiesel). "

Now that Avakov himself writes about the car:

“Today, the guys from the Kulchitsky Battalion, Azov, Donbas, and other units of the National Guard after the state awards ceremony at the Ministry, threw out a crowd and surrounded the car. They praised, asked, tried to take the Smiley "smile" with them. Were glad that we would soon get in the part of such beauties!

The main advantages of the armored vehicle of the WARTA project, noted by our officers and engineers who have experience of military operations:

1. A more powerful and maintainable engine was used (270 hp and 1128 N * M in comparison with 176 hp of the Kozak armored car engine), in the future it is planned to install a modern Cummins engine with 300 hp;

2. In the armored car "Varta" not only the V-shaped bottom was used (like other domestic armored cars), but the V-shaped geometry of the armored capsule itself. This protection allows you to withstand the undermining of a charge with a power of 6 kg in TNT, and also allows you to replace it in the event of damage to the bottom, without replacing the armored capsule;

3. Swedish steel with 560 hardness is used for booking, unlike other domestic armored vehicles that use steel with 500 hardness. This made it possible, without reducing armor resistance, to reduce the weight of the vehicle capsule by 11%, as a result, the payload increased. The armor protects the crew and landing force from an 7,62 * 39 mm armor-piercing cartridge;

4. The armored car is equipped with modern anti-mine seats for the crew and landing with a shock-absorbing effect. Similar seats are used by such world leading manufacturers of military equipment as BMC, FNSS, Otockar, etc .;

5. To improve speed and off-road performance, not only reinforced springs (as on the Kozak armored car) were installed, but also reinforced shock absorbers;

6. For the first time in Ukraine, in conjunction with a domestic manufacturer of bulletproof glass, a modern exterior method of installing bulletproof glass on a combat armored vehicle of this class is used, which makes it possible to produce quick disassembly and assembly if the bulletproof glass is damaged and increases the strength of the frame on which the bulletproof glass is mounted;

7. Installed reinforced dust / waterproof winch. The power of the winch is 9979 kg complete with a synthetic cable 27,5, with which it is possible to work without gloves, the cable itself does not break off in cold weather from the cold, besides the synthetic cable is lighter than the metal one by 85%;

8. Due to the change in the gear ratio of the main pairs (from 6,49 to 5,49), the dynamic performance has significantly improved when driving both on the highway and on rough terrain. The maximum speed on the highway is 120 km / h;

9. Added the ability to centrally swap wheels from the driver's cab. The control unit pumping wheels allows you to choose different operating conditions (highway, dirt road, sand, swamp, etc.);

10. To improve off-road qualities, Continental tires are installed on the Varta armored car; in the future, it is planned to launch a mass production of domestic production in cooperation with the Belocerkovsky tire factory;

11. Walls and roofs are designed for installation on the roof of a crown tower or machine-gun installation with a total weight up to 500-550 kg. It is possible to install a combat module with a 7,62 mm, 12,7 mm machine gun, and a BP-1 turret, similar to the turret, which is mounted on BTR-70 / 80 and BRDM-2 and armed with mm 14,5 and 7,62 mm machine guns, which makes this machine a serious machine support infantry and defense block posts, and also unifies the installation under any permissible type of combat module.

12. Due to the fact that the most repeated weak point in domestic-made armored vehicles is the armored door locks that do not withstand daily operation, handles and locks from the global manufacturer TriMark, which can withstand the daily use of a weight up to 500 kg, were installed on the Warta armored car. ”

      This car would be relevant in the case of a short police operation. But when there are full-scale military operations with the use of artillery, MLRS, tanks, anti-tank guided missiles, various mines, such an armored car does not make sense. And they will not use it in combat conditions.

And the tower should be protected like that of the BTR-80, for example, an open shooter - immediately a dead person, even if there is a shield in front, the fire will not save, it can be from all sides and even from above, in the mountains ...

      All clear. But it is not clear how the Yaroslavl engines will get there and it is not entirely clear how to sit in the cabin? Walking in the cabin will have to put your feet behind your ears, the seats are too low from the floor. Plus imported armored steel, it is already expensive, plus the planned Kamens engines, this is the price of almost half of the car. If they are unable to buy, will they have enough funds to do so?

It’s clear that the manufacture of weapons is profitable only in one pocket - the manufacturer (the names may be different, but there are few of them), the manufacture of products that help raise labor productivity brings profit to the state pocket. Hence the conclusion - all received loans and directed to the war, are spent to the detriment of the state and people, but for the benefit of the oligarchs. The question is to the Ukrainians - who did you ride on the Maidan, hares?

    Vague doubts torment me ...
    I do not watch TV out of principle. I rummage through the network myself. Himself ts zombie. At least I think so.
    And this is what seems to me for a long time.

    When I read the news of our power holding, then there is a feeling of a certain report, some justification. Sometimes plans, tasks, some assessments, requirements.
    When I read news from Ukraine, I seem to be listening to the negotiations of some pathfinders-stalkers, who, before each step, announce it as if for the record. "We will get ..., let's go ..., we will ..., we will protect ..., we will decide ..." Sometimes in the present tense, as if a report from the scene "We are going there ..., we are flying ... , we sit there ..., decide that ..., shoot ..., shoot back ... ".

    Almost never "I did ... we decided ... we started working ..., delivered ..., configured, installed."

    If "collected", then usually some buckwheat for the ATO. If developed, then some kind of wunderwaffe.

    A country of eternal hope, some promises. Moreover, the naive and poorly verified.

    Is there the same feeling in Ukraine, or is it just that it seems to me that I’ve got it?

      You can also lay 1 kg so that the most protected MRAP in place burns. The 122 mm land mine has somewhere 3,6 kg of explosives. If properly laid, it can also break the bottom. So usually in tests explosives without a shell are laid, or in a thin one. Hardness, most likely, according to Brinell. And so the car is interesting, not bad for the National Guard, which sits in the second line.
