News of the project "Typhoon"

23
There were new information about the perspective armored car KAMAZ-53949 "Typhoon". According to recent reports, the development of this armored car has been completed, and some necessary tests have been carried out. In the near future, new equipment should go to the army to conduct military tests. Carrying out this stage of the project will, to a certain extent, bring closer the moment of adopting a new vehicle.


A few days ago, Oleg Bochkarev, deputy chairman of the board of the Military-Industrial Commission of Russia, spoke about the current plans of industry and the military department on the radio station Ekho Moskvy. He noted that the newest small-sized armored car “Typhoon” had not yet reached the troops. However, the transfer of such machines to the army is planned for the next year. The military will have the opportunity to test new equipment, as well as conduct its military tests.

According to O. Bochkarev, a promising armored car is intended for amphibious units of the army. In particular, for this reason, the new car differs from the existing Tiger armored car with smaller dimensions and weight. At the same time, however, the two armored cars have different characteristics, including protection indicators. Bochkarev stressed that the Typhoonenok and Tiger projects use different principles of ballistic and mine protection. The new armored car differs from the existing one in both the chassis design, the chassis, and other features. The new design and the corresponding ideas relating to the protection of the crew, will reduce the likelihood of defeat personnel. Even if the armored car is taken out of action, the crew will survive and be able to escape from the fire.

O. Bochkarev said that the project KamAZ-53949 "Typhoonian" was developed after the introduction of foreign sanctions against Russia. For this reason, when creating the project, the authors relied on the capabilities of the domestic industry.

The design of the armored car "Typhoon" was created relatively recently. The first information about this development appeared a few months ago, and soon it became an exhibit at several exhibitions. According to the available data, the aim of the project was to create a promising armored car for the transportation of personnel with weapons and special equipment capable of protecting the crew and troops from firing from small arms weapons and explosive devices. The KamAZ-53949 all-wheel drive two-axle chassis was chosen as the basis for the armored vehicle, which was equipped with an original armored body.

A characteristic feature of the project "Typhoon" was the maximum possible unification of the individual nodes and units with the already well-known armored car "Typhoon". Due to this, it was planned to simplify the production and operation of new equipment, as well as to provide the required protection characteristics. Thus, the case is a multi-layer structure of metal and ceramic elements, similar to that used on the Typhoon-K armored car. Through the use of proven solutions, the new armored vehicle has a ballistic protection corresponding to the 3 level of the STANAG 4569 standard, and can protect the crew from 7,62xXNNUMX mm R armor-piercing bullets.

The armored car was built according to the hood scheme uncharacteristic of the Kama Automobile Plant. Under the armored hood is a Cummins 6ISBe 350 diesel engine with an 350 horsepower. With the help of a manual transmission with an automatic gearbox, torque is distributed to all wheels. The chassis is based on an independent hydropneumatic suspension with the ability to adjust the main parameters. The used powerplant allows the 14-ton car to reach a highway speed of up to 105 km / h.

In a single habitable volume of armored hull there are ten seats for the crew and landing force. Four fighters, including the driver, sit facing forward in the direction of travel and have their own side doors. Another six people are placed on chairs at the sides of the aft hull. To disembark, they must use aft door with a lowered ladder.

For more convenient machine control, a system is provided that collects data on the operation of all major components and assemblies. Information output is carried out on the liquid crystal monitor installed at the driver’s workplace.

If necessary, the Typhoonenok armored car can receive various additional equipment, primarily remotely controlled combat modules with appropriate dimensions and weight. Due to the possibility of installing combat modules and other equipment, a promising armored car can be used as a protected vehicle for people and cargo, as well as a basis for special equipment: command and control, reconnaissance, sanitary, etc. machines.

The first information about the project “Typhoon” appeared only a few months ago. Since that time, all the main works have been completed, as a result of which it became possible to plan the various stages of testing. According to recent data, to date, the armed forces and the leadership of the defense industry have decided on future plans for a new armored car.

Next year, the first Typhoonenok armored cars will be handed over to the army (presumably to the airborne troops), which will conduct their troop tests. According to the results of trial operation in the troops, future prospects for technology will be determined. If she is satisfied with the military, then in the foreseeable future, the first order for the supply of serial armored vehicles of the new model will appear.

    Under the armored hood is a Cummins 6ISBe 350 diesel engine with 350 hp.

    Do we have any plant producing such engines?

      "Here" they are produced by China under license, so everything is still here. In addition to this engine, you can install YaMZ, as far as I understand. It all depends on the customer. But the trouble is with the boxes, they will almost in any case be German, they have not yet learned how to make their "automatic machines". Although not everything is so sad here, it is easier to deal with dual-use goods under the conditions of sanctions, although you still need your own boxes.

        Yes, these motors are made at Cummins-KAMA joint venture with us.
        But what is the degree of localization - is covered in darkness.
        But the engine can be completely replaced with YaMZ-536, this is not the main thing.
        Here the problem is different. Now, when a lot of money is being allocated for the rearmament of the army, many are offering armored cars, etc.
        In no time should the USSR situation repeat itself when there were already three models of MBT in service, and indeed there were many problems with the unification of weapons.
        The same KAMAZ climbs everywhere, heavy off-road tractors started to do as if there wasn’t, for example, a BAZ, if there is no certainty about the Old Man with its MZKT.
        Now in the field of BTT unified families are being developed: Armata, Kurganets. The same principles should apply to automobiles, including armored vehicles.

      In the 2006 year, KAMAZ and the American company Cummins Inc. signed the founding documents on the establishment of the joint venture Cummins-KAMA.

      By 2015, the production volume at Cummins-KAMA is planned to be increased to 25 thousand engines per year.

        In the Army version of Euro-o, it gives out 451l / s .. It also goes to older "Typhoons", but the problem is that the engine floor is imported components, a turbine, injection electronics and much more. According to the mind, it is necessary to install this engine and not toil with foolishness with different units, the characteristics of this engine generally allow equipping most military equipment with them, and there is also a younger brother of the 4-cylinder YMZ-534 .. It is necessary to increase the series, and thereby reduce the price , at the same time reducing the variety in the troops .. There are still questions Using a mechanical transmission with an automatic transmission, torque is distributed to all wheels. The chassis is built on the basis of an independent hydropneumatic suspension with the ability to adjust the main parameters. What the hell? Are you sure this will work reliably? Especially with a DB?

    There are so many broken copies of this device on the pages in copies that would grab onto the fence along the entire state border ...
    It seems to me that the car is still not a little format .. For a light vehicle, it’s a bit heavy, for a full-fledged army mrap, it’s not enough ... So her fate is shishigi, where, except for the airborne forces, has not taken root ... And compare with a tiger I think it makes no sense. Cars too different classes.

      I disagree. Good guess with roominess. 1 motorized rifle squad in the car - + person. 3 cars - platoon, etc. a very good device for highly mobile parts. The Americans drive their hummers with a bang, this machine will be better, more practical.

        So it weighs almost as much as a full-sized typhoon, given that the latter can also be alleviated by lowering the degree of protection to the level of a typhoon. It’s possible to level this weight .... Only in the Urals and two squads can be crammed in, and taking into account the lack of equipment, then the whole platoon ... And then .. Well, I don’t know, time will tell .....

    Something Bochkarev generally drives garbage. For two years at least they have been writing and talking about this project. And precisely that it was designed with the use of numerous foreign components, for example, Timoni bridges. Maybe he means a redesigned version?

    I somehow do not catch up: "the new car differs from the existing armored car" Tiger "in smaller dimensions and weight", but at the same time: "The 14-ton car" and "have ten seats for the crew and the landing party. Four fighters, including the driver, sit facing forward in the direction of travel and have their own side doors. Another six people are seated on chairs at the sides in the aft part of the hull ", and in the Tiger eight fighters sit closely opposite each other and exit only through the rear swing doors, and the weight is about 7,5, XNUMX tons. what request

    How can you write such nonsense ?! The tiger is one meter lower, half a meter shorter and twice as light! TWICE, Karl !!! Yes, this "kamazenok" weighs as much as a BMD-4M. Where are you going to drop this horse? Kamaz just has something to shove MO, and they sit with their ears clapping and do not know what they want.

      Incorrect statement of the proposal. These machines are unlikely to ever get anywhere, they are not used in the offensive. And even less do they cross rivers. They are completely for another, or to be more precise, in order to ride on the ground and most often in the rear.

    What the hell is that written? The typhoon is also smaller than the Tiger as the biaxial KAMAZ is smaller than the Gazelle.
    It is one meter longer, one meter higher and wider. And almost twice as heavy. In addition, it is simply stuffed with imported components.
    Box - "automatic" - also American, Allison, axles with independent suspension - Timoney from Ireland. The supplier of armor is Plasan Sasa from Israel, on the straps of mine arms - the emblems of the English company Securon, tires - Michelin, headlights - Hella. Tires and those Michelin.

      This KAMAZ is an armored personnel carrier. There is a sense in them. Although this is some kind of expensive option. There are cheaper, and no worse.
      And what you have in the photo is ridiculous nonsense called cannon armored car. Moreover, NOT XNUMXWD. Another Soviet exercise on the topic, I’ll do something, and then see what happened. Maybe something good.
      There was such "happiness" in the Red Army in a different state at the beginning of the Second World War, just over 3000 pieces. Quite naturally, there is no particular information about their successful application. Given that the Germans in the invasion army had about the same number of battle tanks (i.e. without T-I).

      Armored vehicles are designed for transportation in YOUR near and deep rear. This is an armored vehicle.
      They are also often equipped with weapons that do not operate at the very front line, but a little from the rear: ATGMs, air defense systems, mortars, electronic warfare.

      Armored cars are cheaper than tanks, so poor countries or rich countries use them to crush a weak enemy.
