    Source: Platform-O electrical chassis for Topol and Yarsov adopted

    The interlocutor of TASS reported that within the framework of the first batch five samples from the Platform-O family will be received by the Armed Forces


    MOSCOW, March 7th. / TASS /. Domestic highly mobile chassis, created in the framework of the Platform-O development work, in particular for the Topol-M and Yars missile systems, have been adopted by the Russian army. This was announced on Thursday Tass source in the military-industrial complex of the Russian Federation.

    "On the recommendation of the state commission, in view of the successful completion of state tests, the Platform-O family of highly mobile modular chassis has been accepted for supply by the Armed Forces," the agency’s source said.

    At present, Topol-M and Yars mobile soil missile systems use Belarusian multi-axle chassis manufactured by the Minsk plant of wheeled tractors (MZKT).

    The source said that within the framework of the first batch, five samples from the Platform-O family, developed by KamAZ PJSC and manufactured at Remdiesel JSC, will be received by the Armed Forces. Including three cars with a carrying capacity of 25, 50 and 85 tons with 8x8, 12x12 and 16x16 wheel formulas, as well as heavy truck and ballast towers (8x8) for transporting heavy vehicles weighing up to 165 tons and towing trailed systems and airplanes up to 400 tons.

    "Platform-O" is equipped with electric motors for each wheel, does not have a clutch, gearbox, transfer case, drive shafts, differentials, which seriously reduces its weight. The machine has a mode of the so-called crab course: all wheels turn in one direction, which allows you to move almost sideways. The newest chassis was shown on a dynamic display during the exhibition "Army-2018".

    Earlier it was reported that during the production of unified "Platform-O" for 10 years, there will be a gradual transition from the machines produced at MZKT.

    When it was driving on the gravel road the different areas of the tractor part of the truck shook quite a bit... with different bits shaking independently of the others.... did not look comfortable for the crew or likely the payload...

    Very interesting though... wonder how long before they get nuclear power... they are talking about nuclear powered trains too... but all electric drive would suit nuclear power generation...

    One thing is nuclear train, one thing is nuclear truck that is driven by 20 years old guy with a highschool diploma and 250 USD sallary... Army tends to crash and flip stuff around everywhere, nuclear reactor doesnt make it fun. Then make it 100 pieces...shit will happen sooner or later.

    You can see the independent shaking of segments. It is designed this way so as not to break. Unlike consumer SUVs, making such a hauler
    some super-rigid unit is going to result in an epic fail. Any ICBM canister will do quite alright on this truck since it has its own rigidity. It
    is simply not credible that Russian designers would fail to account for such details. Anyone with a functional intellect can see the need for
    them.

    MZKT-692250 chassis on MILEX-2019


    MZKT-692250 is a further development of the MZKT-6922, MZKT-69221 hull chassis family with the wheel formula 6Х6, intended for the installation of the modernized Buk-MB3K air defense system. For the first time, a sample of a special casing wheel chassis was shown during a press tour of Russian journalists.

    According to the Ministry of Defense, the new MZKT-692250 chassis differs from the previous models in the number of axles, increased payload and a more powerful engine. MZKT-692250 is a four-wheel all-wheel drive chassis with steered wheels of the two front axles. It is intended for operation on various types of roads and terrain at an ambient air temperature from -40 to + 50 ° С. The carrying capacity of the chassis, determined by the mass of the mounted equipment, is 17,300 kg. The maximum speed developed by the chassis full weight is 60 km / h.

    Deliveries of two-link transporters GAZ-3344-20 to the Ministry of Defense of Russia


    According to Mil.Press Voennoe web resource, Zavolzhsky Tracked Tractors Plant (ZZGT, part of GAZ Group) has already supplied about 30 tracked two-link snow and swamp-going vehicles GAZ-3344-20. About this Mil.Press Voennoe told the general director of the company Oleg Guriev. He noted that the machines are assembled mainly from domestic components, in particular, they have a YaMZ-53402-10 diesel engine installed.

    Delivery is carried out within the framework of two state contracts concluded in 2017 and 2018. According to the first, the company manufactures 112 vehicles for the Russian military, the delivery will be completed this year. The second until 2020 will produce another 11 snow and swamp vehicles.

    GAZ-334420 created in the framework of the ROC "Korobochka", told the publication of an informed industry source. According to the same technical task, the Ishimbay machine-building company created the DT-3PM snow and swamp-going vehicle. The latter has not yet been adopted, now it continues to be tested. The interlocutor of Mil.Press Military emphasized that both Korobochka are designed to occupy an average niche between small snowmobiles and all-terrain vehicles of the type Trakol and large two-link tractors like DT-10 and DT-30. “The development of two such machines at once shows the necessity of such equipment for the military,” he concluded.

    The decision to recommend the Nizhny Novgorod snow and swamp vehicles to the Ministry of Defense was made after a series of Arctic expeditions, including an autonomous march from Tiksi to Kotelny Island (the archipelago of the Novosibirsk Islands). The expedition ended at the end of February 2017.

    During the march, the military inspected the changes made on the basis of the results of the acceptance tests of the GAZ-3344-20 conveyor-tractor. According to the results of the assessment of the reliability of the machine recommended to take on the supply.


    Reference Mil.Press Military

    The weight of GAZ-3344-20 is 8.7 tons, the loading capacity of the first link is 500 kg, the second is two tons, it can take on board 16 people. The snow and swamp-going vehicle is equipped with a domestic diesel engine YaMZ-53402-10 or American Cummins ISB4.5E3. GAZ-3344 is designed to transport people, goods and equipment in especially difficult road and climatic conditions. The machine is used in the oil and gas industry, geology, geophysics, energy, units of the Ministry of Emergency Situations and security agencies.

    DT-3PM is designed to transport personnel, weapons and military equipment, as well as towing artillery systems and trailers of military units in particularly difficult natural and climatic conditions, such as virgin snow, tundra, wooded and swampy and mountainous areas. The curb weight of the machine is 11.4 tons, the loading capacity of the first link is 0.75 tons, the second is 2.25 tons. Capacity - five people in the cockpit of the first link, and 12 - on the cargo platform (in the cabin) of the second. The car was equipped with an engine YMZ-53677 (312 hp).
