When a Russian armored vehicle catches fire, the fire suppressions system is that you stop the vehicle, you get out of it and then pick up DIRT by hand and hand it to the guy still inside who tries to throw it on the fire.
Dirt is fine, dirt work and is reliable, why NEED extinguisher???
Yes. The Abrams has an automated halon fire suppression system that engages within 0.2 of a second or something.
They still refill with halon or is it all halontron?
I dunno. Halon manufacture is banned, but the gas itself is not.
Civ market regulations =/= military industry regulations
Aren't the handles of the fire suppression system on the outside too? Always wanted to pull them to piss off the crew if it didn't risk killing them.
Dirt isn’t necessary, just blow on it.
maybe most of em don't know how to use the extinguisher. like they don't know how to use a flushing toilet. is it so hard to believe? they rather do a hole in a house and shit in it rather than use the fully working toilet.
Why have shovels on the outside of vehicle if not use dirt? Same as log tovarish.
>pointless slide thread
wtf is this? is it not a fire extinguisher?
its got a tube coming down from the side like one
Welded to the frame to avoid theft.
>fire breaks out
>BTG commander is radiod (only one who can read the instructions)
>BTG commander unlocks the dual custody fire extinguisher lock (he keeps both keys, faster that way)
>aims fire extinguisher
>it coughs up dust like a cartoon, and one splash of century egg jizz squirts out
He didnt suggest soraying diahrea on the fire so we can rule that out. He just said it was a shitty slide thread. Which it is.
What important discussion is being slid you dumb 4chan monkeys?
the cat threads
Distinct lack of bakhmut threads. Usually there are atleast 4. Only 2 and they havent been bumped for awhile. I did see some courageous anon made a cat thread about ukies not retaking ukraine. Nato trannies immediately decended on it to back track everything they said during the kharkiv offensive. Lmao. Cope. Seethe. Dilate.
Calm down Prighozin, they're not going to throw you out a window yet.
You fags have no sense of humor
>No reliable comms between crew members so has to shout at the driver to stop
>Not a single infantryman in a 2 mile radius can be seen
I care more about this than the fucking fire
All IFVs can catch fire, those vehicles are built sturdy and to manage this much. As you can see in the video, this BMP is fully functional and running even when there’s a small electrical fire thanks to redunduncy. A fire extinguisher has an extremely short period of action and fill an armored vehicle with carbon dioxide, while you never run out of dirt or sand.
You can see that the soldiers are pretty calm and handle the small incident professionally, contrary to western media claiming they are untrained mobiks.
>piss tank bmp is so unmaintained electrical wires catch fire as unequipped and untrained crew doesn't have a simple fire extinguisher too stop a fire in the cabin within seconds.
Is that what you meant you seem a bit confused
Comrade why no have bags of dirt in BMP
Brave Russian soldier has no need for dirt, brave soldier will use his own shit to suppress fire.
Totally Russians guys, deactivate your almonds.
