GAZ-2330 "Tiger". Assembling and small test drive
• GAZ-2330 "Tiger". Assembling and small test drive
Photographing was conducted within the framework of the work on the brand booklet of the plant.
Immediately scatter all the myths and legends. No Arab sheiks, Basque terrorists, drug lords and other Colombian Catholic nuns, to the creation of the "Tiger" are irrelevant. Of all the legends, the truth is only that yes, the machine interested in the UAE, is not it all and stop there. As well, with the "Hammer". The only thing that unites two cars - a multi-tasking.
"Tiger" was created and is available as a replacement BRDM.
And so, the "Tiger". Multi-purpose vehicle. Pile modification. All machines are assembled to order only (and APCs). Creating a "Tiger", the designers, without further and saving money (usually) just stuck units and the body of the "Tiger" on the frame and undercarriage "mess", time-tested. It turned out, I must say, very, very.
Assembling the "Tigers" is the same as APCs: handles.
The frame and the undercarriage. Power!
Suspension parts are made, I do not even know what margin of safety.
The suspension of all wheels independent. Drive - with cardan shafts with crosses.
In the rear suspension - two shock absorbers per wheel. Two fuel tanks.
I seemed a bit small, and the place is that it would stick poobomistey, but apparently, the designers know better. Rama Rama ... It is. inspires
There are no robots and other automation.
The entire machine is built around the frame.
Components and assemblies are simply installed and secured.
The first "Tigers" went with "Cummins". But given the requirements of the RF Ministry of Defense, that the weight of aggregates and components have to be domestically produced from "Cummins" refused. And they began to buy engines in Yaroslavl. There are already new-fangled "Common-Rail", with brains.
Final assembly and pre-sale preparation, "Tiger" takes place in a different corner of the shop.
The company, as I told you, works exclusively on order. And this beauty will soon go into one of Latin America.
The passenger compartment.
Cheap plastic. "Gazonovskie" devices ... More Soviet bulbs and LEDs. Gaps with a finger and loose bundles of wiring.
For me the most interesting and exciting part.
Of course, the test site is not the best place that would fully appreciate a car, it would be somewhere else in the "shit", but at the level of the factory shows, Tiger impressed by.
Motor is almost inaudible. Transmission noises and howls - also was observed. Pedals - large and wide apart. Kirzachom 45go size press - at the time will be. Very short passages from the pedals.
Place the passenger.
Feeling like ... I feel that the manager than the large, heavy and iron.
Dynamics ... Well, probably, as in "Field". E. Not a hurricane.
Vsepoglaschayuschaya suspension. A couple of times, especially on the steep bumps, inwardly I shrank, preparing to strike the seat of a soft spot, but nothing happened.
Gently rocked the car and all ... Of course, in such comfort, you have to pay handling.
The car lurches. Heels hard. There was a time when I thought I lie down on his side. But the cost ... Braking causes significant nod to the car. He is deep enough, but only one - the shock absorbers work.
on the brake pedal force is not large, but it is how you feel, what stops that something big and heavy. And the sound of the air discharged from the cylinders, when the pedal is released promotes fullness sensations.
Handle the ceiling hatch. Option.
There is a "tiger" that something, for which I am ready to ask him about everything: the gnashing of the box, and breath-taking dynamics, and no interior, and much more. I can not forgive a price of 3 million rubles.
