Tracked Vehicles

Purchasing tracked armoured vehicles.

The major advantages of a tracked vehicle are its larger walk-through ability, its acceleration capacities and the tank-like experience it provides when driven. All tracked armoured vehicles are equipped with a reduction transmission system enabling you to change gears under high motor revolutions. However, one should keep in mind that surplus tracked armoured carriers cannot drive on roads (unless rubber tracks are used) and require a special, broader trailer (but for a BMP-1, the 2S1 Gvozdika Howitzer  or the MT-LB). All this brings higher transportation costs. For the BMP-1 MORTAR INVESTMENTS offers Tatra T-813 and Tatra T-815 conversions into a BMP-1 carrier apt to transport two  BMP-1s at a time. Also, due to their higher complexity,  maintenance and repair spending on tracked vehicles are higher than those of their wheeled counterparts. Also, tracked vehicles' fuel consumption is generally more important than wheeled carriers'. On the other hand, compared with tanks, tracked armoured vehicles are substantially lighter (less than 15 tonnes for a BMP-1) and are also faster than them (so is, for example the light MT-LB with a KRAZ-255B turbo engine). In comparison with their heavier cousins, tracked armoured vehicles consume less fuel (a BMP-1 takes about 100 litres/100km in the terrain, an OT-90 between 70 and 90 litres).

Besides, we also sell none-armoured military tractors such as the Soviet ATS-59g and the Swedish Volvo BV-202 Snowcat, Hagglung BV 206 or the Austrian SAURER 4K 4FA, equipped with rubber-pads.
