The head of the military industrial complex told about the progress of work on the creation of new armored vehicles for the Russian army

26
General Director of the Military Industrial Company Alexander Krasovitsky during the exhibition Defense Service Asia 2016 told the press that the military-industrial complex intends to continue to carry out active work on the creation of new combat armored vehicles for various purposes. According to Krasovitsky, work is being carried out on the modernization of well-proven models of armored vehicles. This, in particular, is about BTR-80, BTR-80A and BTR-82A armored personnel carriers.


Alexander Krasovitsky touched the theme of the development of BBM "Boomerang", and noted that this armored vehicle is significantly different from the armored personnel carriers mentioned.

TASS gives a fragment of Krasovitsky's statement:
"Boomerang" offers a completely different level of security and an increased level of protection of the front hemisphere.


The head of the military industrial complex told about the progress of work on the creation of new armored vehicles for the Russian army


It is worth recalling that for the first time, the Boomerang BBM (wheel formula 8х8) was presented to a wide audience during the Victory Parade in Moscow 9 May 2015. The very first show for a limited number of specialists took place in 2013, during Russia Arms EXPO.

Alexander Krasovitsky told the press that the military-industrial complex is working on the BTR-87 program, which is being created using the BTR-82А units and assemblies.
Alexander Krasovitsky:
The BTR-87 differs from the previously developed armored personnel carriers in the presence of a rear ramp, as well as a modified layout of the internal compartment and more comfortable crew seating. It is difficult to call it a modernization of the BTR-82A, this is another machine. Alteration of the BTR-82A in the BTR-87 is allowed, but this is not advisable.


According to Krasovitsky, the BTR-87 is equivalent to the BTR-82А, but at the same time it is distinguished by a “more convenient layout with a front engine”.

    The more engineering options offered by design bureaus, the higher the competition among them, and the quality of the equipment coming into service ...

      EEEh and who will train the staff for this entire zoo? And how many warehouse items will be added? Moreover, all this must be tested and verified, not to mention the funds for development and implementation in production ... At whose expense is this banquet?

        Which banquet? If you look from the other side, then some reduction in the power of the army. Well, 60 boomerangs will do that year by the year 2025, so what? Somehow it’s ridiculous to look in comparison with the number of produced equipment in the USSR. Well, pieces of 300 BTR-87 will be delivered. And in fact, there is a decrease in power and quantity.

      The more engineering options offered by design bureaus, the higher the competition among them, and the quality of the equipment coming into service.
      This requires the presence of several manufacturers. And now we have only one "Uralvagonozavod" for heavy armored vehicles, and "Kurganmash" for light vehicles. It is difficult for them to compete with themselves. Even if they release new models of equipment every day.

    It looks like nothing. But in the old days, a prototype would have rolled around Syria, and showed all its weaknesses and strengths. And so, with today's thirst for profit, it’s not a fact that he will go at all!

    For this I must say thank you to "Research Institute of Steel" ...

    UPPER HEMISPHERE PROTECTION COMPLEX (KZVP)

    The principle of the complex’s operation is based on the detection of a flying high-precision munition striking from the upper hemisphere, and disruption of its guidance system either by a powerful electromagnetic pulse, or by creating a multispectral aerosol cloud and false IR targets over the protected object.

    BTR-87 is not a bad option. Boomerang is certainly a new level, but the problems of repair and maintenance will not go anywhere. With a car based on 80s it is easier, but for a "Boomerang" it is not known what kind of filling, maybe again a foreign box or something else. I don’t know how this is solved in the Defense Ministry, but in the explosives it is still mostly repaired in units, the tasks must be completed. For 80-ku, you can buy many parts in the store (KAMAZ, YaMZ).

    We cannot have healthy competition in principle ... Unfortunately ... There are many examples. Insanely inert, clumsy KLA, dvigatelisty, helicopters of Russia and so on. A bunch of directors and a minimum of cool performers. I think the situation with land weapons is similar. Having a full load of enterprises, the representatives of the military-industrial complex on a direct line with the supreme leader were already fluttering, they say, what happens when we rearm the army? Will you close the feeder? How to call it in Russian ??

    First, the head of the military-industrial complex read and thought about the military-industrial commission headed by the president and deputy Rogozin, and this is about the "Limited Liability Society of the military-industrial complex".

    it makes sense to develop the next modification of the BTR-82A if there is a Boomerang? Or will the old BTR70 / 80 be upgraded to the level of BTR-87? And they did not write at what stage the Boomerang trials are.

      boomerang to us (they will have to become the basis of the ground forces of the Russian Federation, replacing the most common BTR-80).


      BTR-87 for export (there are a lot of them, everyone knows, technical equipment, repairs, everything is familiar, cheap).
      Otherwise, either these

      either these


      fill the markets

        Boomerang us how much and when? At least 70s and 80s should be replaced ... But you will see how many you need to change in terms of quantity. At the pace that this will never happen now, but I think no one really counts on it seriously. And then here about 5000 Coalitions someone is dreaming. Msta-S how much in comparison with Acacia? Here in such proportion the Coalitions will be delivered.

          T-14 (2014), the same was a prototype, made using a bypass technology in order to be in time for the parade. Not welding, but "panels and seams" let's say


          T-34 Summer 1941 (tower)


          T-34-76 summer 1942 - a noticeable deterioration in the quality of welding is visible


          The first series of T-34-85


          T-34-85 Spring-Summer 1945. Excellent welding quality

    The BTR-87 is being developed, as I understand it, as an export version and a modernization version of the 82A, already supplied to other armies of the world. And "Boomerang" is good, no dirt is needed ..;)

    It is evident that until death I will remain both a Marxist and a Leninist in terms of the fact that for me practice is a criterion of truth.
    You can cheer for your own people with all your heart (and rightly so), but the superiority of armored personnel carriers is proven in the field. I would like Boomerang to be the best in its class.

    yes what healthy competition ???? to take the same wheeled truck, the best ural was undoubtedly the best, to take the special wheeled platform here is good base, but this and that is not bought, but KAMAZ is bought from us, which would have been most correct right away from the factory along with the management and senior design personnel for scrap to send.

      You, apparently, are not aware that BAZ is now a subdivision of Almaz-Antey. Just recently, there was a shit at VO ... a lively dialogue about the refusal of our air defense concern from the "brotherly" MZKT chassis in favor of the domestic BAZ.

    Levels are in computer games. And in science and technology - systematic development and improvement. everything else is a beautiful advertising chatter.

    Any theory should always be confirmed by practice. Wars are not won by marketing moves. To look convincing is not the main advantage of armored vehicles.

    This is not a workaround, but a desire to rub glasses on the authorities. And the fact that everyone is doing this now is very sad. When you work competently for the sake of serious results, there is no need for such "workarounds".

    Interesting car. You do not forget that in addition to our army, we still need to supply the CSTO with weapons.
    And there are post-Soviet republics, which also have not much money.
    So such alterations are quite justified.
    Especially if some of the details remain from older versions.
