Looks like russian army buys trash again... The idea of armored buldozers is fine, IDF used them with great success... However... Why russia buys the worst, most primitive, obsolete dozer available??? Chelyabinsk dozers are shitty, barely more than slightly "modernized" variants of ancient T-130 and 170. On the other hand, Chetra, another russian firm manufactures really modern machines in much larger variety. T-25 model is the equivalent of the Cat D9. Why army chose trash when there were far superior domestic alternatives?

   At the Army-2019 International Military-Technical Forum held in the Moscow region, a set of new minelayers made on the basis of tracked and wheeled vehicles, created as part of the Klesh'-G (Tick-G) development work, were declassified.

   /.../includes three vehicles. The heaviest of them is the mine layer UMZ-G on the tracked base chassis. Its design is widely used units and aggregates of T-72 and T-90. Its weight is 43,500 kg.


   There are 9 special launchers installed in the armored body that allow for high-speed remote mining. There are 270 cassettes in them. The min shooting range is from 40 m. The mining speed is 40 km/h. The maximum speed of the UMP-G is 60 km/h. For self-defense there is a 12.7 - mm machine gun 6P49  "Kord". Crew - 2 people.

   When designing the UMZ-K medium version, an Asteys armored car was used. Its weight is 18,700 kg. The number of cassettes reduced to 180. The firing range of mines is the same as that of the tracked variant. The maximum speed of movement on the highway increased - up to 100 km / h. Mining speed remained same. The crew is also 2 people.

   The most compact machine of this kit is made on the basis of "Typhoon VDV". It weighs 14,500 kg, equipped with 60 cassettes. The maximum speed is 100 km/h. Crew-2 people.
