    President Vladimir Putin instructed until 2019 to purchase 30,000 rail car platforms for their possible use in the transfer of troops in the event of a threat to the security of the state, said Deputy Defense Minister Dmitry Bulgakov.

    There is an instruction of the president of the state RZD and the Ministry of Transport during 2017-2019. To buy 30 thousand universal platforms and put into circulation, including to ensure the mobilization deployment and strategic deployment of troops,
    - he said at a meeting of the State Duma during the first reading of amendments to the law "On the contract system in the procurement of goods, works, services to ensure state and municipal needs, "

    The bill expands the list of cases for placing an order from single performers with a new item providing for the purchase of transport services and additional services related to their provision, if necessary, for military transport in the event of a threat to the defense capability and security of the state. This option can also be used to ensure the participation of the Russian Armed Forces in operations to maintain or restore peace and international security abroad.

    As explained by the representative of the Ministry of Defense, the past exercises - command and staff, strategic, with the transfer of troops - showed that today there is not enough "at least 30 thousand platforms for the transfer of troops in a strategic direction." This was reported to the Supreme Commander in his time, and he already gave corresponding instructions, the deputy minister said.

    Good to see many of these tractor elements looking armoured. They have a logical application in the new heavy Surface-Air, Surface-Surface and (maybe) in some artillery system.

    Also can be applied to replace the unarmoured tractor elements of the current S-A, S-S and artillery systems. It would be an interesting improvement/upgrade/update.
