Soviet (Russian) all-terrain vehicles "Ural" firmly settled in the Egyptian army, winning the deserved recognition of the military of this country, writes Messenger of Mordovia.

Cars "Ural" in the Egyptian army

According to the resource, "the Egyptian army began to receive the" Urals-375D "even at a time when relations between Egypt and the USSR were in full bloom." Machines took an active part in armed conflicts.

However, soon after the peace treaty with Israel, relations between the USSR and Egypt seriously deteriorated. “Nevertheless, the Egyptians still use 70-s trucks, and according to various sources, there are still more than two and a half thousand such vehicles,” the author notes.

Now in the Armed Forces of Egypt are widely used "Urals-4320". These cars "first appeared during the so-called" color revolution "2011 of the year, now the number of such all-terrain vehicles exceeded three and a half thousand," the article says.

"Urals" are used as transport vehicles, and as a chassis for the installation of artillery pieces.

“So, using the 130-mm cannon Type 59 (copies of the Soviet M-46 cannon) a wheeled ACS was created. This machine, depending on the type of projectiles, is capable of hitting targets from a distance of 27 to 37 km. The cabin of the car is armored and protects against small arms. weapons and splinters, ”the author reports.

There is also another installation with the Soviet howitzer D-30 (mm 122). Its firing range to 15,3 km is high-explosive fragmentation ammunition and to 22 km is active-reactive.

    There is nothing to say about the car, it is a classic and a classic in Africa. But about the Middle Eastern armies, they all come up with all sorts of "shaitan-arbs", putting artillery or machine-gun installations on a car chassis in order to drive through the desert. From light pick-ups to commercial trucks.

      This SUV. Three driving axles. Probably it's great to ride it in the desert. Fuel consumption only ... but for the sun, this is normal.

          There are not only Urals here. ZIL-131 does more impressive tricks! And by and large, probably the forest is illegally exported from the taiga. But the drivers, of course, are real masters! good

    To all our allies and others (as time shows), the carers and temporary companions especially like not only the excellent performance of our equipment, but, first of all, that in extremely rare cases they pay for this equipment with real money (mainly then Russia - Mother forgives everyone around)

    "Ural", there is "Ural". Whether in the desert or in the snow. It was not for nothing that he wore the "Quality Mark" in the USSR.
    In general, the article is extremely rare about anything, a shame for the author. Not a minus, he will understand.

    In the army he served as a driver in the Urals-375. The car is great. Patency - fantastic! On a trailer dragged a station weighing 8 tons, almost a bumper in the snow, at a position in the exercises.
    No wonder, back in Soviet times, at one of the exhibitions in the West, he (the Urals) received a gold medal in his class!

      Fantastic is not the word. I had to work in the Urals in such places, where it’s hard to walk and walk, and he always helped out.

    But why not use it if the Union supplied them with all the equipment for nothing? Duck, these descendants of the Faranas also came running over that it was worse than the western one, because the Jews had always trashed them too easily. As the bad dancer says ...

    Indeed, “Ural” is also “Ural” in Africa. But former brothers and sisters easily change to mattress and mattress trash. In spite of my mother, I will frostbite my ears laughing

    A hare of animals stands on the trail fines. A donkey approaches, he asks if you are a donkey for cars or trucks. A donkey thinks I’ll say a cargo log is being thrown, screaming at a passenger! Hare hands sideways: Why is the universal joint drive from MAZ ???

    In 1992, in the Republika Srpska Krajina, a policeman (Russian) who was driving along the way, Militari, gave me a lift. He had a Portuguese driver. We are going. At the right point, I say: here is a turn and straight ahead "All the way!" You see, after 2 km. Is the Ural worth? There. He translated to the driver and said: Do you know what the UN officials call our Urals? No, Great Monster! With irony? No! Yours faithfully! With great respect! Our Urals calmly passes where all these Maymunas get stuck! PS : And our Urals "flew" on a good road like fighters!
