    Armored vehicles "Marauder" in Kazakhstan



    The highlight of the program at the grand military parade on May 7, 2017 in Astana in honor of the 25th anniversary of the Kazakh Armed Forces will be the demonstration of new military equipment. Ground forces will present armored car "Arlan", which in December of last year entered the armament of military units in three regions of the country.

    For the first time, the brutal 16-ton armored car with an intriguing and somewhat provocative title "Marauder" was first widely known in 2011 after the next release of the popular Top Gear show.

    Actually, this is what its developer and manufacturer, the South African concern Paramount Group, aspired. Only in this way it was possible to occupy its narrow niche in the international arms market, where not only the fierce competition reigns, but the real law of the jungle works. Marauder was created in the middle of the zero and was soon mass-produced under foreign contracts. Today, except Kazakhstan, it is in the arsenal of five countries - Azerbaijan (45 units), Algeria (2 units), Jordan (25 units), Republic of Congo (37 units).

    Ιn South Africa itself, 50 machines are in service. In Kazakhstan, according to public sources, slightly less. The exact number of cars received by the troops is not called for reasons of secrecy. Although, if you google, you can find a figure of 200 cars, which, most likely, is the claimed (but only partially covered) primary need for these machines of our law enforcement agencies. It is known that in Kazakhstan armored vehicles were delivered to the units of the Ministry of Defense and the National Guard.

    With Kazakhstan, Paramount Group has the most serious contract for today. The project with localization of production in our country is very harmoniously blended with the concept of rearmament of the Kazakh army. In Kazakhstan as a whole, there are very limited production opportunities and there is no own school for the construction of armored vehicles. At the same time, security agencies are in great need of new models of combat vehicles of various classes.

    A few years ago, Paramount Group and Kazakhstan Engineering signed an agreement on the establishment of a licensed enterprise Kazakhstan Paramount Engineering, where it was planned to deploy production of equipment under a license. The plant in Astana was built quite quickly: only 3 years passed from the capsule laying in the special economic zone "Astana-Zhana Kala" (December 11, 2013) to the delivery of the first batch of products (December 2016). Officially, the enterprise was opened on November 30, 2015 with the participation of the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan.

    In December 2016, the enterprise successfully fulfilled its obligations to supply armored wheeled vehicles "Arlan" of its own production for the Armed Forces of the Republic of Kazakhstan. At the same time, the employees of the enterprise conducted training of personnel of military units to ensure efficient operation of the machines.

    "Arlan" for the National Guard painted black


    "Arlan" is a multipurpose armored wheeled vehicle with enhanced mine protection mine type MRAP (mine resistant ambush protected). Machines of this type have a large ground clearance, a V-shaped bottom, which allows to resist fragments and dissipate the energy of the explosion. "Arlan" has a high mine protection level STANAG 3b - 8 kg in trotyl equivalent under each wheel and under the same amount, 50 kg in trotyl equivalent at a distance of 5 meters.

    The enterprise is capable of producing the following types of wheeled vehicles:


    • BMK (armored wheeled vehicle) "Arlan" with a 4x4 wheel formula;


    • BMK "Nomad" with wheel arrangement 4x4;


    • BTR (armored vehicle "Barys") with a wheel arrangement 6x6 and 8x8;



    Johan Delport, Deputy Director General of Kazakhstan Paramount Engineering

    About how the company plans to implement all the tasks assigned to it, said Deputy General Manager of KPE Johan Delport.

    - At the moment we produce only one configuration of the car - Arlan with a 4x4 wheel formula. In the future we are going to produce such cars as "Barys" 6x6, "Barys" 8x8 and a special machine for internal troops "Nomad". It will be a police car. Machine "Arlan" was designed in South Africa. But, since in Kazakhstan specific climatic features, we had to adapt it - these were constructive changes for the machine to work in the range from +50 to -50 degrees Celsius.

    - What exactly has been changed in the design?

    - Within the framework of our program for improving the car for winter conditions, we made the following changes: heating of the inner inhabited space, heating of the driver's and commander's place. Also, a lot of work was done to implement the engine heating system. The engine must run smoothly in the coldest conditions. One of the biggest changes is an increase in the diameter of the wheel. This allowed to increase the load on the ground by 20%. As a result of these changes, the car showed good results in winter conditions. When moving through the snow, its mobility is at a sufficiently high level.

    - Who delivers components for the production of cars in Kazakhstan?

    - The machine was developed in South Africa, so many component suppliers were selected from the African region. Components such as the engine, transmission, are freely available and available to all. These are mainly components from Europe. For example, the engine we have from the UK, the transmission is American, but produced under license in many countries around the world. The main components, such as the air conditioning system, armored capsule, were designed in South Africa, and there are also manufacturers. Components for the car come from more than 10 countries.


    - You have put the first batch of cars for power structures. Will the machines in the future somehow differ constructively?

    "Since the Cummins engines are being manufactured all over the world today, we have very successfully found an identical engine that is manufactured in Russia. The second batch of engines we buy in Russia. These engines are put on KamAZ - they are very reliable and, in addition, generally available, that is, they are produced not only for military equipment.


    - What is the percentage of localization of production in Kazakhstan?

    - Initially, it was decided that for our first project we will completely produce armored capsules. This steel is produced in Sweden by SSAB. In our second project, we not only produce armored capsules, but also brackets, mountings and various small metal parts. According to the first draft, localization reached 39%, in the second project we want to achieve localization of 50%. And in the next three years we want to achieve localization of production in Kazakhstan at the level of 60-70%.


    - What are the plans for entering foreign markets?

    - The productivity of our plant is 120 cars per year. If there are orders, we can produce 200 cars a year, if we work in two shifts. Our priority customer is the army of Kazakhstan. We also have an agreement with our partner in Africa - Paramount Group, that we will work in the market of Central Asia. Very serious interest is shown by the countries that are south of Kazakhstan - Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan. To date, Azerbaijan directly works with our partners - Paramount Group. They bring cars in parts from South Africa, they gather at home. But in the future we want to be suppliers of these machines to Azerbaijan. As for our northern neighbor - Russia, of course, they are self-sufficient and are quite capable of providing themselves with the products of the defense industry complex, but we also cooperate with them as suppliers. Jordan and Saudi Arabia are interested in cars with a wheel formula 8x8.


    - What is the cost of your cars?

    - For the basic configuration of our machine, the price is fixed for all customers. The price for today is quite competitive. There is a basic configuration of our car, and there are options, some additional solutions: these can be different types of weapons, mechanical or electric winch, fire extinguishing system, radiation protection system, chemical agents or biological agents, etc. If these elements are available, the price , Of course, will change. Also, if the customer offers some kind of solution, we, on our part, are ready to implement it. For example, the installation of reconnaissance equipment or any radio equipment. In general, the price range - from 6-7-tonne machine 4x4 to a wheeled car 8x8 - varies from 500 thousand.
