The test firing of light APC Dozor, equipped with the gun GSH-23L.
A very controversal solution due to GSh-23L is an aircraft cannon which demands intensive air cooling and has bad dust resistance.

This is not a significant counter-arguments. His used a small munition (23х115) and small ammunition load (250 rounds). He does not need the cooling air stream. The gun is closed casing, so is not afraid of dust. I am confused just a great fire rate, but the military on the testing of this module is granted.

This is done due to Pozor-B cannot withstand 2A72 recoil and weight.
And of course, Ukraine cannot produce cannon barrels of appropriate quality so arms its APC whatever it can find on graveyards.
The most prominent are MT-LB with B-8M-20 aircraft rocket launchers containers as palliative MLRS :)

Why am I angry your ignorance? Personally, I believe that the light APCs do not need a gun. Enough module of a heavy machine gun and automatic grenade launcher. Ukraine produces gun 2A42 and 2A72., Only the light APCs task quite different than its medium and heavy brothers.

KURDISH troops are set to take on ISIS using a terrifying Batmobile-style armoured-car.

The Peshmerga forces are rounding on the terror group’s final Iraqi stronghold of Mosul.

And they plan to smash the extremist's lines with the black, armour-plated war machine.

Images of the daunting vehicle were posted online this week as Kurdish forces rally their soldiers to take on ISIS.

But they face a life-or-death fight with extremists in the northern Iraqi city with a population of 1.5million.

ISIS in Iraq has vowed to make a last stand after being pushed out of the key cities of Ramadi and Fallujah by the Kurds.

GM Has Built A Stealth Truck for the Army

The new hydrogen fuel cell truck could put snipers behind enemy lines, in style.



Imagine you’re a U.S. Special Forces operator on a dangerous mission. You need to hit a terrorist’s mountainside compound without the host country knowing that you’re there, so you need a ride that’s quiet and carries a low thermal signature. General Motors has a truck that they want to put you in.

The Chevrolet Colorado ZH2 is an electric truck powered by a hydrogen fuel cell that runs far quieter and cooler (between 60 to 80 degrees Celsius) than conventional automobiles. It’s almost a forward operating base unto itself, capable of producing 25 kilowatts of continuous power (and up to 50 kilowatts at peak output), along with two gallons of water per hour. The vehicle itself is a modified Chevy Colorado, rigged for off-road performance with bigger tires, better suspension, longer wheelbase, etc.

Unveiled Monday at the Association of the U.S. Army conference in Washington, D.C., the ZH2 is a technology demonstrator, so it’s not going to hit the battlefield yet.

The truck was developed in partnership with the Army’s Tank Automotive Research Development and Engineering Center, or TARDEC, which entered a unique research collaboration with GM to make sure the ZH2 could meet military requirements. TARDEC entered into a contract with GM a year ago to produce the demonstrator.

A year from contract to car is incredibly fast for the auto industry, much less for the military. But the relationship was almost four years in the making. It began when GM and TARDEC began working together Michigan in fuel cell research facilities that were about 20 minutes apart. They “provided some of their test facilities to us and integrated them into our laboratories,” said Rogers. TARDEC engineers tested the GM fuel cell stacks for performance, endurance, etc. “We are gaining access to several billion dollars of technology investment from General motors. They are gaining the value of a second party gaining evaluating and measuring data on their systems.”

In January, the Army will take possession of the vehicle and give it to soldiers to go mudding…er, put it through rigorous off-road testing, at Fort Bragg, Fort Benning, and Quantico, as well as some technical testing in Michigan. The Special Operations community will help test the vehicle, whose stealth features would be most appropriate for SOF missions, said TARDEC director Paul Rogers.


“The ability to position yourself at a point of advantage on the battlefield, without exposing yourself, SOF definitely,” Rogers said at a preview event for the vehicle on Sunday night. “There are other reconnaissance, surveillance, target acquisition roles.”

The ZH2 “is not a combat vehicle” said Christopher Colquitt, a senior project engineer at GM who led the project. It isn’t armored and wouldn’t stand up well against an IED. “All those things would have to be considered for a combat-ready vehicle.”

GM and Army officials are optimistic that the hydrogen fuel cell system will have applications beyond a single demonstrator. But anyone who remembers learning about the Hindenburg disaster might have a few reservations about running vehicles on hydrogen, including cars.

Colquitt acknowledged the Hindenburg connection. “Hydrogen is a fuel, yes. Does it have flammable properties in certain conditions? Yes. But pure hydrogen isn’t flammable. You have to mix it with air and have an ignition source.”


The truck has three tanks of compressed hydrogen in the back of the vehicle, he said. Those tanks are composed of an inch of carbon fiber to keep the hydrogen away from fire and air.


Rogers didn’t seem concerned about the hydrogen issue, calling it an “additional area that we want to explore to make sure that there are no secondary effects for the types of threats that we deal with.”

Starting from 2010 till 31.12.2015, Ukraine for 6 years of strategic military-technical cooperation of the Kingdom of Thailand, Royal Thai Army supplied 200 armored personnel carriers BTR-3E1 series of different modifications. Anyone interested in more detail, you can see here:

For these 6 years Ukraine has fucked up T-84 contract due to low tanks quality and delivery terms violations.
As for BTR-3E, this crap based on old Soviet BTR-60/70 hull bodies cannot sustain heavy fire modules and crack in the places that are the most difficult to repair.
Just recall Pashinskiy's words: "Ukrainian defence industry is dead with absolute zero potential. Our best technical level is Pozor-B and Molot minethrower..."
There's nothing to add here.

The saliva of anger not choke . Who pays and receives. BTR-3E1 is worth 1 million USD(26 million UAH). It can be cheaper to 17-19 million
