Military Review

In the Russian Federation created a floating air defense system "Thor" for the Arctic

LAW "Thor" on a floating platform will be released for testing this fall, reports Газета.ру with reference to the representative of the defense industry.

All-terrain vehicle DT-30 "Vityaz"

The car was developed by specialists from Izhevsk Electromechanical Plant (part of Almaz-Antey).

“The developers presented a promising module of the“ Thor ”short-range system mounted on the DT-30 chassis of a two-link tracked conveyor manufactured by Uralvagonzavod. In fact, all the characteristics are the same as those of the Tor-M2 on a tracked chassis, only the platform is new - in the Arctic version it is on a floating platform. The commander-in-chief of the Land Forces said that he will be put to the test this fall, "
said the source of the newspaper.

Earlier it was reported that a family of military equipment would be created for the Russian arctic group, including an “armored personnel carrier, multiple rocket launcher systems, an anti-aircraft missile system, self-propelled artillery systems and other modules”.

Publication certificate: "DT-30 is a two-link tracked all-terrain vehicle. Thanks to the hydraulic hitch drives, the machine can lift the front part, overcoming vertical walls, slopes and moats, and wide tracks with low ground pressure make it possible to confidently move through the swamps, virgin snow, and forest-tundra. On the water DT-30 floats at a speed of four kilometers per hour, the installation of the propeller increases the speed to eight knots. "

      Hello, do you have this 3D model?
      The Arctic torus is very necessary.
      Regards, Anna.

    This famous "thirty" has not been altered for anything! That's the technique! Rarely has a specimen been so successful. Still, the front glass would go down / up - shoot at the wood grouses ... repeat

    The next transarctic passage of our polar explorers will now be possible to cover the military anti-aircraft complex on the march (so that the "seagulls" do not shit from above) laughing

    Cool toy turned out good I am very happy with such good news. good . In the northern latitudes, such a machine as this all-terrain vehicle is very necessary ..., but what is needed there, REQUIRED !!! good Class !!! good

    But we gained the most irreplaceable experience in the Antarctic. In 1959, tracked all-terrain vehicles of the 4th Soviet Antarctic expedition overcame 2.700 km on a snowy road and reached the South Pole in high altitude conditions. In the future, the development of special equipment for such harsh conditions was continued.

    Hmm, they took the Arctic seriously. Somehow, when there was an article about our new icebreakers, there came such a crazy idea - are these icebreakers not a dual-use case? Maybe the Caliber-NK launchers aboard these ships? And something tells me that thought is not far from the truth.

        in fact, today no one can even compete with our Northern Fleet, the icebreaking fleet.
        The Yankees most powerful fleet is not suitable for such harsh conditions. The only thing is that submarines can easily swim there, but they can’t be reached with calibers.
        That and the infrastructure we have there is best developed.
        A hurt en perspective pleases. I'm talking about 23550. You always need to try to be a few steps ahead and consolidate your leadership.

    A good thing to overcome hummocks and open water. Here the striped ones will be delighted at the delicate circumstances on a thick basis. And most importantly, try to find these sleds in white camouflage against the background of snow and water, either a snowdrift or an ice floe.

    While our "partners" are thinking, counting money, we are creating a combat-ready Arctic group of troops to protect our interests in the Russian North. Previously, our trawlers near Spitsbergen, with nothing to do, would board the Norwegians. And now they have quieted down, because our military activity in this region has increased and their pirate drakars may easily not reach their home ports.

    But until recently I watched sad programs about what a wonderful two-link all-terrain vehicle "Vityaz" was invented in the Union, but nobody needs it. And now a few years pass and now they need it and do it. And in principle, it would be very useful in the ground forces.

    There such EXCELLENT EVERYTHING is needed there, only adapted for the Arctic conditions - frost, humidity, hummocks, and other pleasures, including bears and deer ... however, the crews of this equipment will do just fine with them, they will go for lunch with a bang ...

    Dear, I have long dreamed of such an option for Arctic air defense, then there should be PKR or better universal air-cushion air defense / PKR, you need to build up faster with all types of equipment and be sure to not forget about people

    All the same, our life is full of paradoxes: After all, Vityaz, like the T-72, went into production not because of, but contrary to fate, what a machine it turned out! He though Thor at least that, will master everything (within the weight category) This is really a device! I don’t understand one thing: Why does the MO do not want to buy it in bulk, after all, in Chechnya, it showed its simply outstanding qualities?

    Floating Arctic "Thor" ... Soon with such a pace flying "Barguzin" will become commonplace))). I am simply shocked by the capabilities of our military-industrial complex, in spite of everything doing its job.

      Maybe Thor is better to numb so that he is already standing on the ships? And then the Knight in the Arctic is not very ... away from the coast.

    And why did "Calm" not please you? And we are actively developing the Arctic.
    Now let's push a piece of iron there and maybe the concept of "northern delivery" will go away
    into the story.
