"The battle for czerepanovii dwarfs" gadfly ". The armored car made on the units And the basis of GAZ-66, Clearly during the severe hangover of the chief designer of the Zhytomyr armored plant, " the Blogger wrote in a review on his page in Facebook.
He said only 3 positive side of the armored car. First, - " the base GAZ-66, which is commercially available since 1964. A lot of cheap parts, running a powerful, reliable army units ". Secondly, the " good inclination angles of armor plates, which positively influences Under fire ". The third advantage was " an Attempt to make lattice screens at the hull ". Twice in the new armored car of the deficiencies identified." on the proposal of chief designer of the enterprise of Zhytomyr, citizens are creatures supposedly 150 cm increase And 55-60 kg body weight. Under them was doing. Attempt to get into the driver's cab to the average Ukrainian man to such a height 180 And weight 105 kg, over the fact that getting out has helped him, " wrote Shorr Kan, adding that it was not to get body armor And helmets. Secondly, according to his statement, " the crew of the dwarfs in the driver's cab sits ass on a hot engine (And enjoys) ". Thirdly, " the layout of the crew compartment was dark And tough. Narrow, cramped, low "." instead of the seat - bench in the centre, the only option to get to the combat module is to stand on the seat at the center, " He said. The fourth flaw was " the lack of loopholes for shooting from the car, the crew may use personal Weapons ". The fifth " screens. 3mm at a distance of 7 cm From the main armor in the hole. To tell the truth, I never understood what they... From RPGs they are unable to defend RPGs won't. Resemble flat once more. In short, a delusion, " added the Blogger. And, finally, the armored car " no air conditioning, but in the form of ventilation (used) such a hefty gills on the screens." The inside of vents is also not detected." Conclusion.
