We are in Ostrogozhsk, at the base of the 37th training vehicle brigade where a meeting of specialists of the Russian Armed Forces logistic support system took place. Many wheeled and crawler vehicles are inside the post.
The vehicle brigade is in Ostrogozhsk, the Voronezh region. Floating chassis BAZ is used for the monument.
There are interactive whiteboards and projecting cameras in the classrooms.
Modern technologies are successfully combined with traditional means of education: relief maps, posters, models.
Three-axle chassis of an amphibian vehicle BAZ. It has jet propellers on each side that help to float in water.
All aggregates are functional even the engine powered with an electric motor.
Manual transmission transmits the force of the engine to the gear case equipped with a built-in differential dividing the drives of the right and left sides.
Annually the brigade educates 3 thousand specialists of crawler and multi-axle wheeled equipment.

You feel like being in a plane
Armoured vehicles “Rys”, “Tiger”, “UAZ”.
“Rys” can carry light armament and communication systems.
“Rys” is in fact an Intalian Iveco «LMV». It is assembled in Voronezh.
Heart of a “Rys”
It has Russian components for 10% only, this number may increase in furure.
GAZ 2330 “Tigr” (Tiger) – an army multi-purpose off-road vehicle.
“Rys” is going to dislodge “Tigr” cause it has a weaker shooting protection class and has no means of mine defence.
Not too comfortable compared to “Rys”
Russian armoured vehicle “Volk” (Wolf) is pretty much similar to the Iveco.
Simple and reliable UAZ
New equipment for repair in field conditions
Maintenance workshop based on a truck “Ural”
Inside the shop. Feed system test zone
Zone for fitting and assembly works
Drilling something is not a problem
With help of all this equipment many types of works can be done.
