    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.

    Formation of multi-axle heavy wheeled tractors units

    As the newspaper "Izvestia" reported in the article by Alexei Ramm, Dmitry Litovkin and Yevgeny Andreev "Tanks will be taken to" bicycles ". The Ministry of Defense began the formation of unique military units - regiments, battalions and the mouth of multi-axle heavy wheeled tractors, "Russian tanks, infantry fighting vehicles and self-propelled guns will travel to deployment sites in their own way, and on special multi-axle heavy tractors. The Ministry of Defense began the formation of unique military units - regiments, battalions and the mouth of multi-axle heavy wheeled tractors (MTCT). Their task is the prompt delivery of tank and motorized rifle divisions to the places of combat operations over distances of thousands of kilometers. At the same time, military equipment will be ready to engage in battle without preparation - "from the wheels." The KamAZ-65225 tractor will be supplied to the armament of the new military units with semi-trailers. It is noteworthy that in the troops such cars received an informal name - "heavy bicycles".

    Some details about the truck tractive tanker URAL-6308

    Almost a year ago, our blog wrote about the appearance of a truck tractor from the family "Tornado-U" with the wheel formula 8x8 on the spring suspension of the rear axles. In the last issue of the magazine "AvtoRevu" in the article "Oshkosh in the Urals: a Four-Axis Urals for the Transport of Tanks" Fedor Lapshin tells new details about this car.


    The prototype of a truck-tractive tanker URAL-6308 (c) AvtoRevu


    So, according to the author, for the first time the image of the car appeared in the flip-chart of the products of JSC "Automobile Plant" Ural "for 2016. The signature said that this URAL-6308 from the perspective family" Tornado-U "(with a panel-panel cab, where the panels Can be made of both composites and armored steel), and this option is a conveyor for UAVs, but when the car was shown at the closed part of the 2016 Army Forum it turned out that there was a saddle of the hitch on the frame.

    Judging by the fact that the tank engine will develop at least 550-600 hp. (As stated), it is possible that in the sandwich under the hood will be the new in-line engine YMZ-780. Its working volume is 12.4 liters, production should begin in 2018. By that time, URAL is likely to experience an unusual rear suspension, which is independent and spring-loaded, judging by the design of the chassis, the wheels of the rear axle are thrusters.

    The weight of a heavy trailer will be there...

    Most trucks for hauling tanks cost as much as the tanks they haul so most of the time it makes more sense to just send by train or ship...

    Umm the current Kamaz 6x6 are doing fine as far as it seems. Its even hauling the Armata, which is the heaviest Russian MBT so far. So why suddenly 8x8? Is it for more than one vehicle? There are MZKTs for that. Those are even bigger and I thought Kamaz Platform-O series is the replacement of MZKT series as it uses German engines.

    Why is that? It has no armor, gun, FCS I mean no combat suit. Agree with the ship and train version but why the cost is same as the tank itself?

    The vast majority of the tanks in the current Russian Army are probably worth 1 million or less...

    A decent large powerful truck can easily cost a million dollars a pop or a large fraction of that.

    Umm the current Kamaz 6x6 are doing fine as far as it seems. Its even hauling the Armata, which is the heaviest Russian MBT so far. So why suddenly 8x8? Is it for more than one vehicle?

    Previous vehicle loads were T-80/T-90 etc series vehicles in the 40-50 ton weight class. The new Armata family reported go in the 50-65 ton class. Perhaps the extra set of wheels is to allow for the increase in weight... not just in armour, but also in air defence missiles and ballistic weapons etc etc all of which will get heavier too.

    I like very much this kind of armoured trucks.

    I think armoured tractor elements would mean a very good upgrade for the current Surface-Surface, Surface-Air and Artillery systems mounted on trucks with unarmoured cabins, helping to expand its service life and helping a lot to increase the safety of the crews (basically vs sabotage groups acting in the rear).

    Surely it would a more important use in the first stages than the direct application to land auxiliary transport.
