It is clear that it is not "severe Chelyabinsk bus," as they say in the Internet. And do not even what that secret military project. Of course it's not photoshop, and chassis had not anticipated was that. Directly on the first photo transportation VL80T-1342 (one section), after the collapse of Tulun in Irkutsk University of Railways. But some might be surprised to learn. that than something like the vehicle was really in the project. Let's look at this project:
The top of this miracle - a former locomotive DM62-1727 after TR-3 in 2001, bottom - the chassis from rocket launchers on the basis of "Hurricane" with increased in relation to the standard version, track width. Wheel drive should be at each individual wheel (induction motor that is located in the hub of the wheel and the wheel resulting in rotation through the regular planetary gear). For transporting the drive were equipped with only two wheels, and they have not earned. The drive wheels turning hydraulic using some obscure actuators. In the back is installed hydraulic station - precisely because it did not leave it. Boxes on the sides - battery capacity and oil hydraulic capacity under the frame - fuel tanks.
This is the result of research conducted in NIII-21 (deals with suspension of wheeled and tracked vehicles) in Bronnitsy. They tested chassis for heavy off-road vehicles, and the engine was not good. But at the Armed Forces had a lot of him as the M62 engine on top of the chassis and set.
Miracle it currently stands (and can no longer?) In the VNIKTI. Develop projects and drawings scientists MSTU. Bauman in 2002 - 2003,. Then he wanted to drive away under its own power at the military training ground near Bronnitsy in December 2003, but something went wrong with the steering control wheels and traction.
Let's summarize the version that walk on the Internet:
Version number one (unfortunately, the authors could not be traced, as the quotes wander around an Internet):
In the late 90s the All-Union Scientific Research Institute of diesel (VNITI, Kolomna Mos. Reg.) Received an order from the Ministry of Defence to develop a hybrid tractor with all-terrain chassis together with tyagovvymi performance diesel engines. That was such an "oslobyk" MZKT chassis and body and filling diesel locomotives 2T62U (in my opinion, as it's called). For this was battered brand new locomotive. After all the work on the design of such a monster, it could start, but he did not go ... there were problems with the steering system. As a result, it Kolomna Bronnitsi hauling tractor, and the last kilometers were critical: castors stood in raskoryachku ... well, somehow dragged it to the landfill, vposedstvii war there with him something conjured, but in the end this idea was abandoned .
Version number two is somewhat different:
This miracle did Bronnitsi together with MSTU. Bauman. I talked to the guys who did it. Locomotive there otzaborny. When filled in all the required motor fluid (and there is one hundred liters of water), there are literally flowed from all cracks. Had all drained, all apart and change pads. As this process occurs in winter, and this monster is standing in the street, children in terms relative to the locomotive, bosses, Yeltsin etc. not particularly shy. In the end the spring it somehow and completed the start, he went out of the gate and died right there. Back to drag him there was no physical possibility, and there he was still almost a year. As for the "why you need it" - but actually practical sense it does not. Practiced independently steering each wheel, purely experimental machine.
Version number three adds mystery:
On the chassis MZKT-7919 set the body of the former locomotive M62 ... In suburban Bronnitsi, behind the fence VNIKTI, which comes to testing new Army machinery, for more than a month worth an unknown vehicle, like a locomotive. As we found out, it work out the design of heavy-duty chassis for special equipment. The fact that you can create on the existing chassis MZKT-7919 new body, besides stuffed complex electrical and hydraulic units, military institutions were simply not do. Came to the aid of military savvy. Thus was born this wonderful truck. Installed on the chassis of the body of the former locomotive M62 ... I wonder what each wheel is driven by a giant individual induction motor housed in the hub. In the back is installed hydraulic equipment. Boxes on the sides - battery and a container under the oil hydraulics, under the frame - fuel tanks. The exact purpose of this machine until the military secret, but it is expected to be, for example, a powerful mobile power several thousand kW.
A version number four slightly dispels:
The picture shows a failed attempt to make a mobile power station for the military. In the winter of last year, this unusual object was to reach its course in military ground Bronytsia, but the design was weak. Big problems have arisen with the management of the rotation of the wheels and traction. Since then, they were never engaged. Top - a former locomotive M62, bottom frame with wheels on the chassis MZKT-7919. individual wheel drive - asynchronous motor, placed in the hub of each wheel and the wheel resulting in rotation through the regular planetary gear.
Version number five:
And here's an interesting experiment - locomotive wheels on the road. Even as you can see, the car number prisobachit. This former DM62-1727 put on the chassis of the rocket launchers with increased track width. Actually missiles to carry this thing and should be. But it is unfortunately not taught to turn.
The sixth version:
MIRACLE it currently stands on the site VNIKTI (background machine shop and on the right cab brake unit based on the VL60). Did this unit our workers, projects and drawings - scientists MVTU. Bauman. It was built in 2002- 2003, at wanted to drive away under its own power at the military training ground near Bronnitsy in December last year, but something went wrong for scientists to control rotation of the wheels and traction. IT rattled a couple of weeks, and then the water was drained, scientists and military fled and that to this day no one appears.
The top of this miracle - a former locomotive DM62 no. 1727 (probably October Railways) after the TS-3 in 2001, bottom - chassis (frame with wheels) from rocket launchers on the basis of "Hurricane" with increased in relation to the standard version, track width. The drive wheels must be at each individual wheel - asynchronous motor located in the hub of the wheel and the wheel resulting in rotation through the regular planetary gear. For transporting the drive were equipped with only two wheels, and they have not earned. The drive wheels turning hydraulic using some not clear actuators. In the back is installed hydraulic station, precisely because it did not leave it. And if you could steer - dragged to tractors. Boxes on the sides - battery capacity and oil hydraulic capacity under the frame - fuel tanks.
