    The Ministry of Defense began a massive purchase of the Linza sanitary armored vehicles
    Yesterday, 11: 14

    Russian Ground Forces: News #3 16225310

    The Ministry of Defense has begun a massive purchase of Linza sanitary armored vehicles, created on the basis of the Typhoon-K armored car. The decision was made based on the results of military trial operation.

    The first deliveries of Linza armored ambulances to the troops were reported back in 2019. The armored cars were supplied for trial operation to the medical units of the Southern and Central Military Districts, including Syria and the 201st military base in Tajikistan.

    This spring began mass deliveries of armored ambulances to the troops. The rate of re-equipment of medical units with a new sanitary armored car will depend on the release of equipment within the framework of the state defense order. As they write "News" with reference to the military department, this year "Lenses" will become part of the special purpose medical units of the Ministry of Defense in the Western Military District. And in the Central Military District, they will replenish the medical battalions of several motorized rifle brigades.

    The Linza sanitary armored vehicle is based on the Typhoon-K 4X4 chassis, it has a double cabin and a sanitary compartment that allows evacuating the wounded from the battlefield. The compartment has a capacity of four people lying down, or six people in a sitting position. A combined option for transporting the wounded is possible - two lying and three sitting. The vehicle has a smooth ride and can deliver the wounded over rough terrain as comfortably as possible.

    The armored car has a third class of protection, provided by a combination of ceramic armor and armor steel. Mine protection withstands blasting up to 8 kg in TNT equivalent under the wheel. At the same time, the destroyed wheel provides up to 50 km of driving on rough terrain.

    The vehicle is equipped with various medical equipment, including devices for pulling the wounded out of hatches and dragging them out, shields for evacuation with spinal injuries, etc.

    Five armored cameras are installed on the armored car, providing all-round visibility for the crew. It is possible to install a remotely controlled module with a machine gun, which is controlled by the second crew member through the remote control located in the cockpit.

    It should be noted that their own ambulance transport is being developed for the landing force and the marines within the framework of the Rakita ROC. The work must be completed by November 10, 2023.

    The Ministry of Defense named the number of tanks planned for delivery to the troops by the end of the year

    The Ministry of Defense announced the arrival of modern tanks in the formations and units of the Ground Forces. According to the statement of the military department, by the end of the year the troops will receive about 200 tanks.

    According to the report, T-72B3, T-72B3M, T-80BVM and T-90M tanks will be supplied to the Ground Forces under the state defense order. Speaking about the number of armored vehicles, the military department clarified that 90 modernized T-72B3 and T-72B3M tanks, about 80 T-80BVM tanks and a batch of T-90M Proryv tanks are expected to arrive. On the "nineties" the Ministry of Defense does not give exact figures.

    It is emphasized that all the equipment has confirmed the inherent characteristics and has proven itself in operation in various climatic zones.

    As previously reported, the Ministry of Defense has decided on the supply of tanks to the military districts. Thus, T-80BVMs are being supplied and will mainly be supplied to the Far East and the North, where gas turbine engines have proved their indispensability. The T-90M Proryv will mainly go into service with the troops in the western and southern directions. The upgraded T-72B3 and T-72B3M will be supplied to all districts except the North.

    At the same time, nothing has been reported about the supply of the latest tanks on the Armata combat platform, earlier the Ministry of Defense explained that this equipment will go serially to the troops from 2022. The T-14 Armata manufacturer announced preparations for the delivery of an experimental-industrial batch of tanks to the troops, but did not name the number of tanks in the batch.

    The Ministry of Defense will annually recruit an additional 15 thousand contract soldiers and officers. 

    The Ministry of Defense in the period from 2021 to 2024 will annually recruit about 15 thousand additional contract soldiers and officers. This was announced on Tuesday by Russian Defense Minister General of the Army Sergei Shoigu, summing up the results of the unified day of acceptance of military equipment.

    "We have significantly changed our approaches to further manning crews for particularly complex equipment. Our report to the Supreme Commander-in-Chief was supported. Based on this, we are increasing the rate of recruitment of contract soldiers and officers of those positions that we expected to complete closer to 2030, 2025. Now this program has been optimized, and we actually have to recruit an additional 14.8 thousand contract soldiers and officers every year in 2021, 2022, 2023 and 2024" – he said.

    According to him, this is done so that "the equipment that is being delivered, and these deliveries have reached a stable, planned mode, is properly provided with the necessary crews and necessary specialists."

    UVZ enterprise handed over a batch of swamp walkers to the Defense Ministry. 

    The Vityaz machine-building company, part of the Uralvagonzavod concern of Rostec State Corporation, handed over a batch of DT-10PM two-link tracked transporters to the Defense Ministry by the Single Day of military Acceptance. By the end of the year, the company will fulfill two more contracts.

    Two-link transporters of the Vityaz series, called snow and swamp vehicles for their unique cross-country ability, are designed to transport cargo and weapons systems in difficult climatic conditions of the Far North, Siberia, the Far East, the Arctic and Antarctic on low-load-bearing soils: swamp, virgin snow, off-road, rough wooded terrain. The carrying capacity of the Vityaz two-link tracked transporters, which can reach a maximum speed of up to 44 km/h on land and up to 6 km/h in water, is from 3 to 30 tons.

    Shoigu spoke about surprise checks in the Russian army

    The Russian army is "in fact, troops of constant readiness", which is facilitated by sudden checks of servicemen. This was announced on Tuesday, August 10, by the Russian Minister of Defense, General of the Army Sergei Shoigu during his speech at the youth educational forum "Territory of Meanings".

    “Today we actually have troops of constant readiness. We do not have someone who needs to be collected from somewhere, to find, we have everything in constant readiness. Today I listened to the report - we have such formations, battalion-tactical groups. I pressed the button - they are ready to leave the gate in an hour. We have 168 of them today, and this is a very high figure, ”the Minister of War said.

    Shoigu noted that surprise inspections began to be carried out "in an adult way" in 2012, and before that the Russian military had been aware of the upcoming inspection for a very long time.

    "Sudden readiness is when you brushed your teeth in the morning:" Shouldn't we check the Central Military District today together with the military transport aviation and airborne troops? " - explained the general.

    He shared that under such a scenario, about 140 thousand people, 2.5-3 thousand aircraft and helicopters, 14-17 thousand armored vehicles are lifted at a time, followed by a transfer to familiar stages.

    Earlier the same day, on August 10, Sergei Shoigu announced that the most terrible threat to the country is the decay of society.

    One of the biggest eyeopeners to the Russian military during the Georgian action during 2008 was how outdated their communications systems were. Since then it has been an endless stream of new equipment and technological upgrades. Pretty impressive actually russia

    The engineering troops of the Central Military District received the first special vehicles of mine clearance groups based on the UAZ army SUV. The machines are designed for the rapid neutralization of both the terrain and infrastructure facilities, the press service of the Central Military District reports. They can also be used simply as a transport for transporting sappers.

    I doubt it can sustain the explosion of the ERA. But it still better than getting penetrated by an RPG.

    Also to be noted, it is Kontakt 1 which is enough to counter RPG-7 used by guerillas.

    This would most likely be an armoured version (MRAP). There was a test done on Combat Approved where a unarmoured SUV. The result was a fairly big dent on the rear door and some shattered glass, but the passengers had a probable chance of surviving the ordeal.
