Scattered Mine Laying Platform BAOBAB
Scattered Mining Vehicle kr. BAOBAB-K is a research and development work carried out by a consortium of companies, which includes: Huta Stalowa Wola S.A. as a leader, Jelcz sp. z o. o., BZE BELMA S.A., Military Institute of Engineering Technology. The project is implemented on the basis of an agreement concluded with the Armament Agency (formerly the Armament Inspectorate) on December 28, 2018. As part of development work at HSW S.A. a vehicle has been developed that performs the tasks of scattering mines by laying anti-tank minefields of adequate density, capable of destroy or incapacitate vehicles of enemy troops. Scattered Mining Vehicle is intended for engineering subunits and is an important element in shaping the tactical situation on the battlefield.
BASIC TECHNICAL PARAMETERS OF PMN BAOBAB-K:
∙ Total number of mines: 600 pieces,
∙ Crew: 2 people,
∙ Reload time: < 30 minutes,
∙ Laying range: from 60 to 180 m,
∙ Laying speed: from 5 to 20 km/h (automatically adjusted to minefield density),
∙ Length of the minefield: up to 1,800 m.
