The ДT-30 "Витаз" (Transliteration: DT-30 "Vitaz") is a Soviet
all-terrain tracked carrier designed to carry heavy loads over all off-road
terrain, including swamps, sand and snow. First vehicle was built in 1981
and small scale production commenced in 1982. It is also used for a number
of civilian applications in rough terrain. The vehicle has never been
exported outside the former Soviet republics.
The DT-30 has articulated configuration. It weighs 30 tonnes and has equal
payload capacity. The vehicle has a fully enclosed forward control cab,
which provides seating for driver and four passengers. Engine compartment
is located directly behind the cab. The rear articulated unit can
accommodate a variety of bodies.These can vary considerably from the front
compartment on the tractor unit.
The vehicle is powered by a V-46-5 multi-fuel diesel engine, developing 710
hp. This engine was developed from that used on the T-64 main battle tank.
It is fitted with a pre-heater and can be started in extremely cold
temperatures, as low as -50°C.
The Vitaz has tracks that are 1.1 m wide and a very low ground pressure. It
can even go through anti-tank mine without causing detonation. While all
later versions are amphibious, the original DT-30 with a single flat bed
cargo body is not. The second improvement of this model is designated
DT-10, resulting in a smaller articulated tracked carrier with narrower
tracks that are capable of carrying a payload of 10 tonnes or 10
passengers, including the crew of five.
