Frost and slush. Troops in the Arctic will receive a unique all-terrain vehicle-armored personnel carrier

Combined arms formations of the Russian Armed Forces, which are based in the Arctic, will receive a DT-BTR tracked carrier. Thanks to its special design, this technique shows excellent cross-country ability, especially in wetlands and in the arctic zone. It is positioned as a technique for transporting personnel of a motorized rifle squad and its fire support in the harsh natural and climatic conditions of the Arctic, Siberia and the Far East. & nbsp; understood the features of this all-terrain vehicle.

Arctic & mdash; territory of strategic importance for Russia. But to work in the Far North, special equipment is needed. Moreover, both civil and military. A unique two-link lightly armored vehicle, which will soon receive the Arctic troops of the Russian Federation, is designed to transport servicemen and provide them with powerful fire support. The development belongs to Uralvagonzavod.

& nbsp; The DT-BTR combat vehicle is designed to transport personnel of a motorized rifle squad and its fire support in the harsh climatic conditions of the Arctic, Siberia and the Far East. It was first shown on Channel One, and now Krasnaya Zvezda reminded about the transfer of the car to the Arctic.

& nbsp; The word “ two-link '' in the name denotes two elements articulated with each other. The first element & mdash; where the power plant is located, the control compartment. The second element & mdash; the place where the main troop compartment or various weapons systems are located. The first link will have a crew of three: a driver-mechanic, a gunner-operator and a commander. The second link will accommodate 9 paratroopers.

& nbsp; According to the developers, this technique shows excellent passability, especially in wetlands and in the arctic zone.

& nbsp; In the summer, the car underwent various tests at the 38th Research Institute of Armored Weapons and Equipment of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation near Moscow. Were shown footage of her undermining and checking how she can protect the crew when the enemy uses napalm. During the tests, portions of napalm were decomposed on the tank, which were set on fire and successfully burned, while the military man and the correspondent stood on the tank and carefully watched this action, surrounded by flames. As a result, the armored personnel carrier (and the testers too) passed the tests successfully.

The combat vehicle can carry a motorized rifle squad of nine people, the landing force is located in the second link, three more crew members are in the first.

Combat weight – 25,000 kg. Engine power – 500 HP The maximum speed reaches 60 km/h on land and 6 km/h on water. It is possible to force water barriers by swimming. The all-terrain vehicle can overcome ditches up to 2.7 m wide and a vertical wall one meter high. The vehicle can take an ascent or descent with a steepness of up to 35 degrees, a slope of at least 20 degrees.

& nbsp; The armored personnel carrier can be operated at temperatures up to minus 50 degrees Celsius.

& nbsp; As part of weapons & ndash; 30-mm cannon, 7.62-mm machine gun and anti-tank complex “ Cornet ''. The most advanced scopes allow you to effectively fire at any time of the day and in all weather conditions. In addition, there is a variant of the module with the 12.7-mm Utes machine gun. The roof of the second link of the vehicle is equipped with an active protection complex, which increases its survivability in the conditions of modern combat operations.

& nbsp; Adoption of the “ Arctic tank '' will significantly increase the capabilities of subdivisions operating in the Arctic, experts say.

& nbsp; In addition, Russian specialists have developed a REM-GT recovery vehicle based on the DT-30PM all-terrain vehicle. It is intended for & nbsp; maintenance of military equipment.

& nbsp; Wheeled all-terrain vehicles of the Lyubertsy enterprise “ Trekol '' are most widely used as civilian vehicles. These are kind of overgrown jeeps on low-pressure tires. They are capable of operating at temperatures ranging from minus 45 to plus 45 degrees, while providing maximum passenger comfort. Moreover, they have excellent cross-country ability. “ Trekol '' really will go everywhere: it will pass on ice, in deep snow, in a swamp and even on water, because, among other things, it is an amphibian.

& nbsp; Another option for civilians is the product of the KamAZ enterprise, which is called & mdash; “ Arctic ''. These are powerful cargo all-terrain vehicles operating at temperatures up to minus 60 degrees. In the Arctic a living module is provided in which the crew can spend at least three days. There are beds, a shower, a toilet, a sink, and a kind of kitchen where you can warm up food. The residential module is equipped with a heater and air conditioner.
