MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
New medical armored vehicles “Linza” of the Western Military District returned to their permanent deployment points after successful testing at special exercises in the Nizhny Novgorod region.
For the first time, the district medical units used the Linza sanitary armored vehicles in real conditions of combined arms combat during tactical exercises. The cars were used during the stage of the drawing for the evacuation of the “wounded” from the wounded vehicles and from the battlefield.
Military medics, under the cover of a motorized rifle company, transported the “victims” from conventionally burning armored vehicles using a special winch for pulling the wounded out of the hatches of combat vehicles installed on the “Linza”. Then they loaded into the sanitary compartment of the armored car, where they provided first aid and, as soon as possible, delivered the “victim” to the field hospital.
In total, about 10 units of Linza medical armored vehicles, which entered service under the state defense order in the troops of the Western Military District in the spring of this year, have been tested in conditions close to combat conditions.
“Lens” with a 4×4 wheel arrangement on the base chassis of an armored car “Typhoon” can carry up to 9 people: 3 crew members and up to 6 wounded in a sitting position. It is equipped with five video cameras throughout the body, has a 3rd class of armor, capable of withstanding shots from weapons of up to 54 mm caliber and up to 8 kg of TNT explosion under the protected bottom of the armored vehicle.
