There are better machines)For example, MDK-3. Now in Russia is developing a new foundation pit machine.

Awesome!!! I find it interesting how some countries have a type of vehicle while others do not. Gun trucks, armored cars, rotary trenches etc. It appears the right door is armored which happens to be the burm side.

Just my country has a lot of experience of defensive wars (the last 500 years at war)))))) So we have and create such military engineering vehicles.

The USSR had developed a large number of unique machines for different types of troops.
IPR - engineering underwater reconnaissance. This tank can ride on the ground (which is quite natural for the tank), swimming (this is also nothing new - tanks "learned" to swim in the early twentieth century), and can move in the water column as a submarine, or go on the bottom of the pond...

Another model number I have seen this unit called is a BAT-21, to the best of my knowledge its based on a T-34 Chassis with essentially a truck cab mounted to it, most I have seen have just a tank towing assembly on the back and a dozer blade on the front, whenever I see one of these beasts they are smoking up a storm and all I can think of is a Mad Max movie, certainly an interesting vehicle non the less!

Some interesting equipment. I'm impressed with how far those large trenchers throw the soil. Reminds me of the railroad rotary snowplows.

Yes indeed , they sure make a HOLE fast , but then again when you need a hole you need it FAST ! wonder how they work in rocky soil ? one thing for sure they all look HEAVY DUTY !

The main objective of BAT-2 for create roads and highways in a combat zone. The cab is pressurized, radiation protection and other interesting stuff on it)))

These machines are designed to work with soils 1-4 category.
Rocky soil - is 5 or higher.

Well I know what I'm buying if I get rich! A tank with a blade and a crane, I'm in love. The M88a2 are similar, but look like a shoebox on tracks.

Hello USSR,

Ozzy trucker from Australia here.

I am fascinated by this large Russian-built T-800 dozer. It's in the Cat D11/ Komatsu D575 class, way ahead of its time, at the time. In fact, I've been attempting some research on it for a while and among the few pics I could find (very hard to find) I notice the track frames have no vertical oscillation like a conventional track-type tractor, proven by no support (obviously not needed) on the front idlers. So it appears to use a hull-type chassis (??) where the track frames are fixed, (actually maybe it does not have track frames, rather a tank-design hull) and suspension is provided by oscillation built into the bottom rollers somehow. (??). Could this machine and the frame/chassis be derived from a Russian tank, a T-80 or T-90 or larger for instance??.

I''d like to know more about the actual design of this machine if anyone knows about it.

Cheers

Ozzytrucker
