The newest armored vehicles “Ural Tornado-U” entered the mountain formation of the Central Military District (CVO) stationed in the Republic of Tyva. A batch of seven vehicles with enhanced cabin armor entered the controlled operation, after which these samples will replenish the fleet of the compound’s combat vehicles.

In the near future, military drivers will begin testing equipment at the Kara-Khaak training ground, where they will practice driving over rough terrain during combat training in various weather conditions.

The Tornado-U 6×6 vehicle is based on the Ural-6370 platform. Its carrying capacity reaches 16 tons, and its gross weight is 30 tons. The car is equipped with a diesel inline six-cylinder multi-fuel engine with a capacity of 440 hp. The maximum speed is 100 km / h. The ground clearance is 400 mm. The machine is capable of climbing up to 60 degrees, a ford 1.8 m deep. The power reserve is about 1000 km.

One of the main features of the car is the cab: it is bonneted, frame-panel, three-seater, equipped with ventilation, heating and air conditioning systems. It is possible to install an additional protection kit on the cab – armor of the fifth protection class, which is capable of withstanding the hit of 7.62 mm armor-piercing bullets fired from the AKM from a distance of 5-10 m.
