VT-4 to change the picture of infantry combat vehicle thanks to the hard-working small tank ahead

quietly, quietly, China Northern Industrial Corporation exhibited in Abu Dhabi a heavy infantry combat vehicle modified by VT-4 main battle tank. This artillery overlord said earlier that the 59 heavy step battle is a water test knocker, and the heavy infantry combat vehicle converted from VT-4 main battle tank is the real thing.

Tank to heavy infantry combat vehicle, the layout is basically the same. The rear end of the car is changed to the front and the power is changed to the rear. The top armor is removed and the original cab and battle room are elevated to the crew cabin. Of course, 59 is different from VT-4. The former one is based on the existing one. The new front protection can only be simplified because of the poor. The latter one is made entirely new. The front and top protection is very comprehensive.

Many times, people think that heavy step warfare can be used as the protection of crew cabin by engine. In practice, however, when an infantry-laden heavy infantry battle engine is damaged in the enemy's heavily fired area, its fate can be imagined. It's basically a target when it loses momentum. It's only a matter of time before it's exploded. In this case, the infantry needed to withdraw to the safe area as soon as possible, but how did they run under the heavy fire of the enemy?

The correct way is to protect the power cabin even if it can undertake certain protection. Real heavy-step warfare should be able to carry infantry to safety even when they are surrounded by enemy fire. For this reason, Amata did not install a very thin armor deck in front of the power cabin, but also installed a heavy explosion reaction on its front and side. By contrast, 59 to 45 mm thick front armor plus a few additional pieces of armor is barefoot.

VT-4 not only redesigned the front of the re-stride battle, but also piled up a lot of re-detonation. Its protection level is comparable to that of T-15. At the same time, because VT-4 optimizes the heat dissipation of power cabin, its front side is not as weak as T-15, so it has to be covered by wedge-shaped rebound. Compared with VT-4, the two are more reasonable, at least not to worry about hanging up the front detonation when traveling through the rubble-laden city. Another good thing about VT-4 over T-15 is that VT-4 has a shorter chassis, which is particularly important in urban warfare.

The only weakness of the current VT-4 replay step warfare is that the T-15 is equipped with active protection, while the VT-4 is not. In this regard, this artillery does not think that this is a backward place, which is related to the potential users of this VT-4 change. The active protection of the T-15 is to protect the front of the combat vehicle. Its purpose is nothing more than to meet the enemy when it is attacking or ready. Currently, the VT-4 is used for patrolling in high-risk areas, and can use armored hard resistance. Of course, it can also be installed if the user needs it. In fact, some clues can be seen from the turret used in the VT-4 conversion. Which big dog has a BMP-3 weapon station? We chose this turret to cater to them.

VT-4 heavy infantry combat vehicle rear, in addition to visible thick and comprehensive protection, smoke launcher and two remote control weapon stations are installed in the upper and side of the rear. What is the purpose of setting up a comprehensive weapon in the rear of the car? In some scenarios, illegal armed forces set up multiple fire points to attract the attention of infantry fighter owners'turrets, and then use the blind area behind the vehicle to approach the vehicle. When the front battle started, the enemy's waiting cabin behind the chariot opened the door and attacked the infantry who got off the chariot. Someone here will ask why not put the remote control weapon station on the top of the turret. Ben Gubao thought that this should be based on three reasons.

The turret of the infantry combat vehicle was small, and there was no place to install the remote control weapon station.

is placed on both sides of the rear of the vehicle, and the shooting dead angle is small. It can not only deal with the enemy at high altitude, but also destroy the enemy crawling or near.

One main gun, two remote control weapon stations, different people take care of different directions, both can attack, but also can cover retreat.
