MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
Special-purpose units of the combined-arms army of the Eastern Military District (VVO), in the course of combat training and daily activities in the Trans-Baikal Territory, are mastering the new Typhoon armored vehicles.
So, during one of the exercises at the Krasny Yar training ground in Transbaikalia, special forces groups on Typhoon armored vehicles ensured the passage of a convoy of military equipment, and were ambushed by members of a sabotage and reconnaissance group of a mock enemy.
With the beginning of repelling the attack, one of the armored cars with a corps closed the dismounting of the landing groups armed with AK-12 assault rifles and other newest weapons from enemy fire. At the same time, fire support was carried out from the armored vehicle. Having repulsed the attack of the “enemy”, the servicemen ensured the further passage of equipment and subsequently worked out the provision of first aid to the conditionally wounded and their evacuation.
In total, over 200 servicemen took part in the exercise, about 50 units of military equipment were involved.
For reference: Typhoon armored vehicles are produced on the basis of the KamAZ-63968 and Ural-63095 chassis. They have hydropneumatic, independent suspension, automatic transmission, 450 horsepower engine.
The car is equipped with an on-board information and control system (BIUS) GALS-D1M for monitoring and regulating the operation of the engine, calculating the roll of the car, the slope of the road, speed, location, etc.
The main find of the developers was frame-panel cabins, on which armored panels with protection are attached. For the first time, these vehicles began to use integrated ceramic armor, mine protection, which includes special seats for the crew and troops (their design reliably fixes the person and absorbs the energy of the explosion), special glazing that can withstand even a direct hit from an armor-piercing incendiary bullet from a large-caliber tank machine gun KPVT from a distance of 200 m.
