BTR-4 Armored Personnel Carrier
btr-4 armored personnel carrier
The BTR-4 armoured personnel carrier is an amphibious eight-wheel armoured fighting vehicle intended for transportation of personnel of armed forces and its fire support during the combat action.
The BTR-4 may fulfil its functions twenty-four hours a day in all climatic zones irrespective of season while operating on roads with various pavements and in cross-country conditions.
Structurally the vehicle is divided into four compartments: driving, engine-transmission, fighting and troops compartment.
The driving compartment is in the front part. In this compartment the driver’s and commander’s seats are placed. Side doors and roof hatches are used for accessing/escaping the driving compartment. For observation of road situation the front and side bullet-proof glasses are used which, if necessary, may be closed with armoured covers. For observation in case of closed armoured covers, the periscope devices are used. For the purpose of driving in bad weather conditions, the night vision devices are used. A routable hatch with sighting devices is installed at the commander’s station.
The engine/transmission compartment is in the central part of the hull and is separated from the habitable compartments with hermitic vibration & noise-isolating partitions. In this compartment the engine with its supporting systems, main elements of a steering system, air and hydraulic systems are placed.
The fighting and troop compartments are in the central and rear part of the hull and are intended for placement of the combat module with a gunner, troopers and equipment necessary for their work. The troop compartment contains seats for troopers, troop’s periscope devices and firing ports for firing from individual weapon by the troopers. Besides, in habitable compartment the filtering/ventilating system and main elements of ventilation, heating and conditioning systems are placed. Habitable compartments are interconnected by the passageway along the right-hand side.
