Default Old Soviet mobile command post

Found this pretty interesting. An old Soviet mobile command post. I see some fun potential as a science vehicle or medical vehicle as well as command/ communications center.

I guess old is a relative term since the S-300V, one of the latest updates to this missile battery, started deliveries in 2014.

It is certainly based on older technology. Many of the parts are the same as used on the T-72, T-80, and T-90 MBT. The tread chassis is based on one from the 2S7 Pion 203 mm self-propelled gun.

Interestingly enough, the improved S-400 and the almost ready S-500 are both wheeled designs based on several truck chassis, with different ones for the command center, radars, TELs, and reloaders. These missile batteries are used for long range air defense, including ICBMs and anti-satellite.

If you wanted to use US military vehicles, you could build vehicles similar to the S-400 using HEMMTs. I can't find one, but you could build a 13 tonne module to put on the back easy enough.

I am very familiar with HEMTTS, we called them draggin waggins. There is a guy that turned one into a camper. He has a pretty cool blog. Also the new tank haulers the US army uses the Oshkosh M-1070 has a lot of potential, with and with out the trailer. I saw a variant with a box on it (mil van) and saw one converted to civilian use as a camper and one as an oil field truck. They can haul quit a lot of stuff. When testing them out they went head to head with a top of the line Peterbilt and pulled an M-1 up to the top of Pikes Peak. The Peter never made it. Lots of room under that hood for a fusion PP or nuclear battery stack. Also the Pallet Carrier version has some serious potential as a MP vehicle. Lots you can do with it. One vehicle, multi modules ...

The HEMMT A3 with the power-pulse diesel-electric hybrid drivetrain shows just how capable of a fusion drive it is.
