Scorpion tested for durability with 152-mm projectile

A video appeared on the network in which the lightweight Scorpion armored car is tested for strength by detonating a landmine, which was played by an 152-mm projectile, reports Rossiyskaya Gazeta.

Scorpion tested for durability with 152-mm projectile

“According to the test conditions, the car is about a hundred meters away from an installed explosive device. The video camera is fixed inside the car. The video continued after the explosion, so the camera was not hit by the blast wave, ”comments video“ RG ”.

As then demonstrated in the video, the car body, glass and loopholes withstood the blows of the howitzer shell fragments.

Help newspaper: “The Scorpion prototype lightweight armored car was first shown in 2011 year. The bottom of the V-shaped can withstand the explosion of a land mine with a capacity of up to six kilograms of TNT. On tests during an explosion under the bottom of four kilograms of explosives, the car lost its chassis, but the hull remained intact. Five-ton "Scorpion" is designed to carry up to eight people. The standard weapon is the Pecheneg 7,62 mm machine gun. ”

    There will be much less damage if you put the car in 1000 m from the explosion.

      What is it! There is a new armored car in Ukraine that is not a day! As much as each holds 6 kg of TNT under him! "Ne may be analogous to the suite" everyone! So the test was not impressed. Now, if he (Scorpio) could withstand a direct hit from 152 mm guns from then yes! And so there is no offset.
      p / s For the slow-witted, it was a joke. And the armored car was made wisely. Since even the sides are at an angle. For a small car, its protection is what you need. Here, if it was also possible to install active protection on the roof, it would be fine. Yes, almost I forgot the bottom of it is also V-shaped. So that underneath it holds explosions on mines. And before you scold at least for help, first make inquiries.

        In some century, there were people who created an army jeep more perfect in design than the UAZ, and the people are not happy ... The engine is Polish there, it's a fact. The commercial orientation of "Zashchita" has an effect. Korean box Dymos. But the power units can be changed to domestic ones at any time. The same UAZ is assembled half of Korean parts.

            And why is the charge exploding right under the bottom? Is it "the correct form"? It should have been somewhere under the wheel ...

            And about the projectile ... Who will undermine the IED in 100 meters? They are buried \ placed near the road. There will not be 100 meters ...

          Please note that this is a lightly armored vehicle, not a tank, even a light one! And the protection made is fully justified! This armored car does not have to withstand the direct attacks of a tank gun! Not for that he was made, he has his own niche in military equipment!

      Yes Yes Yes! And if you blow up the shell in Chechnya, and put the Scorpio somewhere on Alabino, but in general it will be whole! You can assign the 10500th protection class! =))
      But seriously, according to the experience of the Afghan campaign, Chechen and now Syrian, then dushmans bury a couple of these 152mm shells under a wheel or a couple of meters from the road and it already explodes near or under the car and that’s how it is necessary to test an armored car, and not this circus with half Polish Scorpio.

      Personally, my opinion here the headline was spelled incorrectly, it was rather tested not for survivability in a blast, but for how much a fragment can carry ... and in the future it is possible for blasting in a landmine, it’s just that the author of the heading turned out to be fantasy.

      Something painfully thick, they began to promote it, they did not spare money. Probably, the UAZ men do not want to give their niche in the army to the GAZ workers. The current was too late when the "Tigers" were already marching at full speed, but on this "scorpion" there was a lot of foreign everything , this is somehow ridiculous in conditions when the sanctions are not removed, but also strengthened. I put on the tiger, I like it more.))

    Interestingly, at what other distances will they experience undermining?

        Scorpio is a little more than completely composed of imported components, the main one is a licensed Polish engine, wheels, seats, and a part of electronics. There to fig imported parts. So partially, but the aviator was right.

    It's Rossiyskaya Gazeta! The correspondent, far from the topic, was shown a spectacular show, he concluded that the camera was not damaged. And the fact that the lightly armored vehicle did not receive damage, and therefore the l / s is intact, did not occur to him.

    The variety of armored vehicles is alarming. There is a "Tiger", there is a KAMAZ - what else do you need? You have to do your own, to the last bolt, just bring to mind. No, we will attach the left one, we will hold a tender for a couple of years. Isn't it time to multiply affiliated structures by zero? Otherwise, we will become the same kazzly as the Americans with their lobbying, it will not take long. So far, rushing is on the old yeast, so you need to cut off all unnecessary things, and a new one has gone, but a correction is needed.

    The fragments fly a lot, of course. From the right, the pillar shows how the fragments fragments. But it seems to me that if a large piece arrives it will not be buzzing. I saw the fragments from the explosives at the battlefield, so there’s about 1.5-2 kg in weight. car + For the safety of a fighter it is necessary to fight in the rear.

    What if you get lucky? After all, the manufacturer does not think about the soldiers, but about his own profit and, to some extent, about the design. Oh, we will have a grief with these "designers" if that.

    Cars must be made under modern conditions ... And the conditions are such that if there is a danger of sabotage, then they will put a land mine not 2 kg in the form of a TNT bomb and not 100 meters from the road, but put on the side of the road, a pair of two 122 mm shells or one 152 mm shell ... So the machines must be made that can withstand it ... And so this Scorpio, which the simple Urals will smash into pieces ...
