BMD-4М in the workshop and on the landfill - photo report from the Volgograd Tractor Plant

54
20 January 2016 of the Volgograd Tractor Plant OJSC (VgTZ, a member of Concern Tractor Plants LLC, KTZ) was visited by the Commander of the Russian Airborne Forces, Colonel-General Vladimir Shamanov. In particular, he reported that A new airborne assault vehicle (BMD-4М) will be resolved within the next few days. According to him, all documents are coordinated with all departments and are in the government apparatus. "The government’s resolution on BMD-4М and BTR-MDM (Shell)” - said the commander of the Airborne Forces (qi Tata is given by the TASS agency.) During his visit to the enterprise, the commander of the Airborne Forces also inspected the production facilities and experienced BMD-4М on the way.


From the side of bmpd, we note that the actual production of BMD cases is carried out on an independent production site. Welding of hulls is carried out at Volgograd Shipbuilding Plant OJSC. The distance between the sites - about 90 km. All units for BMD-4М, except for transmission, are produced on VgTZ. A transmission, unified with the BMP, will be assembled at Kurgan Machine-Building Plant OJSC and delivered as a finished product to Volgograd. The company also has its own design bureau, which recently produced a rejuvenation of personnel and expanded staff.

Our blog publishes a photo report from this event, photos courtesy of the press service of Concern Tractor Plants LLC.

        I've paid more attention to people. Workshop as a workshop. The main thing is that the heat be and ventilate. And here are the people ... a crowd of shiny barrels came in, which barely squeezed into the shop gates, and began to inspect the work of hard workers that you won’t look at without tears ... sad while there is no doubt that billions are stolen on military orders. Those who could go for the modernization of equipment, increasing payments to workers and, as a result, attracting young people. crying

        In a workshop of such an area and during the Russian winter it can be said that they are easily dressed, our people go to the glass making shop in sweatshirts.

        In Semipalatinsk, only walls were left from the BTT repair plant. No roof, no frames, nothing - just walls. And now there are already several hundred workers (more than 600, if memory serves) jobs. And they have not been deprived of the state order since 2011 .. So it will be necessary, you will revive - for the Russian Federation this is not a problem. They will make money on the state order and put everything in order, or the state will help - the military-industrial complex is clearly "picking up speed." hi
        It is hard to find a buyer abroad - very few people need a landing vehicle (airborne forces with transport aircraft), and who can "pull" more to the west are oriented. But for Russia, the car is certainly necessary - the Airborne Forces are always at the forefront.

    Hull welding is carried out at Volgograd Shipbuilding Plant OJSC.

    But what, the shipyard can not be used in another way? There is no one to build a fleet, but it turns out that there is a shipyard in Volgograd that makes tanks fool

      The bottleneck of the shipyard is the slipway, the rest of the workshops are always not loaded, especially the hull workshop. So they downloaded it. That's what, and shipbuilders can do welding.

      Right! A shipyard must make ships!
      In Barnaul there is a stake in a tractor factory! After all, it would be realistic to organize production of the BRDM-4M on it!

        Yeah. So the shipyard making metal structures is a perversion, and the tractor factory making tanks is normal. bully

        BMD 4 are several times more than BMP 3 and inferior to them in armor. And what for they are needed?

          It’s just that BMD must have so much ability to take transport aviation in two approaches for landing, it’s unlikely to be more. And it does not make sense to equip all the BMD units anyway, the airborne units use quick reaction troops or elite infantry, where the BMD is not needed.

            Wow, it’s more visible from above, but why is it necessary to use BMD if it will be used as a BMP?

        BRDM-3 has not yet been released, and you are about to release 4M.
        BRDM-combat reconnaissance patrol vehicle, BMD-amphibious assault vehicle, feel the difference and then organize the production. hi

      For three years now, the Volgograd shipyard has not existed, and it was destroyed. And the BMD hulls are made by Spetsmashinostroenie LLC, located on the territory of the former shipyard.

      Rejoice that the Volgograd plant is generally working, producing the required products, the workers are paid. It is better to let the plant produce BMD than stand idle, work for a warehouse, or "redesign" into a shopping center

      Starting with the T-34 tank hulls for STZ, VgTZ, were brewed at a shipyard. Link: There is a book "Stalingrad thirty-four" on the network, it describes where STZ received tank hulls. And other factories received hulls and turrets of tanks by cooperation. ChTZ received KV corps from Uralmash. This is offhand. All the cooperation of tank factories should be looked at according to documents from the Second World War.

      Yes you!! smile Normal menagers !! ?? fool Carry the hulls for 90 kilometers !!! Brilliant ?? And how much dough you can wash !!!! And to carry transmission parts from Kurgan for 1500 km ?? The main thing is that everyone is busy: carriers, loaders, shipbuilders, etc. And in Kurgan, we will bury the finished plant in a couple of years! Why destroy a normally working plant in order to build another ?? Maybe we have fucking money or more ?? Maybe someone knows? Most likely, the "Cheboksary tractor drivers", who bought up all the tractor plants in Russia, decided to cut down a bunch of free "collective farm" dough under the guise of "organizing" a new production !!

    Normal practice. BT tanks were produced at the Kharkov steam locomotive plant. The shipbuilding Krasnoye Sormovo produced T-34s, the Stalingrad tractor also produced far from tractors during the war.

    The Kurganmash, where they were going to release BMD, is bankrupt.
    From Volgograd Tractor, which did not produce tanks even when the Germans were in the city, there remained a design bureau and some of the former territories. The rest is a shopping center and devastation. The factory employs people of an old school, almost no youth.
    There is no shipbuilding, they went bankrupt, there is some kind of LLC. Cook on it, because they themselves can no longer.

    Effective managers jumped ...

    I’m not about the fact that they do not work in their specialty, but about the government’s inability and unwillingness to properly load production capacities. The specialized enterprise Kurganmashzavod is bankrupt - there are no orders, ships do not have time to build - there are not enough capacities and specialists, and a large shipbuilding enterprise collapsed due to the lack of orders. It seems that the traitors have entrenched themselves in the government and continue to work for the Americans - purposefully destroying the industry.

    Something I don’t understand, it will not be accepted into service in 2012, since the armor is frankly weak and there is no mine protection, it was put into service at the end of 2012 and ordered several vehicles. Now it turns out they will again be taken into service, it is not clear. And by car, the armament is certainly impressive, but the armor is very weak, the frontal holds 12,7 mm and the bulletproof circle, it is weak.
