Omsk floating conveyor fifth generation of PTS-4 is the best in the world
The latest Russian floating conveyor fifth generation PTS-4 for its relatively short life had been several times to light up during the shows of military equipment high-level officials, as well as exhibitions of weapons. Unfortunately, greedy for externalities public to pay more attention to flying T-80 and T-90A than that of their beautiful, like a giant alligator and a car.
Transporter K-61On one of the organizers of the exhibition show next to modern technology put to show the old belt K-61, which was a kind of ancestor of the domestic appliances of this type. And if you compare the characteristics of the machine, then you can understand how they evolved. Launched in 1950 in a series of K-61 weighs a little more than 9.5 tons, but the latest Omsk "floaters" is 33 tons. Thus "shestdesyatpervy" could carry the water only 5 tons of cargo, and PTS-4 for 18.
Two-stroke diesel engine YAAZ K-61-204B 130 HP clocked by belt sushi to only 35-36 km. / Hr and 10 km. / Hr from the water, and a multi-fuel engine 840 ps "Four" allows you to move at speeds up to 60 km. / Hr on the ground and 15 km. / Hr on a water surface. The machine has the fifth-generation hotel management offices and armed with remote-controlled machine gun 12.7 mm machine gun with 400 rounds of ammunition.
Power reserve at the K-61 is not more than 260 km, the Title-4 on one tank can drive about 600 km or continuously move water for 10.6 hours.
Of course, the PTS-4 was not created for the broken record. The fact that the existing TCP transporters in the armed forces and the TCP-2 obsolete. Developed from the Ukraine to replace them PTS-3 has become a "foreign car". In addition to the design of "three rubles" used elements of the chassis of the T-64, which is removed from service of the Russian army. By this it is not surprising that the Omsk took the chassis components of "native" to their T-80.
It is not surprising that the transporter has an amazing smoothness, which is sure to be appreciated by future machine operators. Of course, the main thing that this technique in the first place was the Russian army, and not to foreign customers.
