    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.

    This one is based on Typhoon-K which is used by paratroopers, weird that Army is going with it while paratroopers and marines need different one

    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.
