   The DT-10P Vityaz articulated all-terrain tracked carrier is a smaller version of the DT-30P. Both of these vehicles are referred as the Vityaz (knight) family.

   This articulated tracked carrier was designed to carry heavy loads over all off-road terrain, including swamps, sand and snow, and operate in arctic conditions. The DT-10P was originally designed to meet military needs, however it was not accepted to service. This tracked vehicle was used for a number of civilian applications instead.

   The DT-10P tracked carrier has a payload capacity of 10 t, or 10 passengers, including the crew of five. It has two load carrying areas, one on the front section and other and other on the second articulated unit. Front and rear cargo areas are covered by bows and tarpaulin.

   The DT-10P Vityaz has a fully enclosed forward control cab, which provides seating for driver and four passengers. Engine compartment is located behind the cab. The rear unit can accommodate a variety of bodies. In some cases the rear unit can vary considerably from the front.

   The DT-10P is powered by the V-46-5 multi-fuel diesel engine, developing 710 hp. It is worth mentioning that the same engine is used on much larger DT-30 Vityaz. This engine was developed from that, used on the T-72 main battle tank. Engine is fitted with a pre-heater and can be started at -50C.

   This all-terrain tracked transporter is fully amphibious. On water it is propelled by its tracks. Maximum amphibious speed on water is about 5 km/h. This vehicle also has narrower tracks, than the larger DT-30P.

 

Variants

 

   DT-10PM Vezdesusciy, improved and updated version of the DT-10P. It has similar load carrying capacity, but has a more powerful YaMZ diesel engine, developing 800 hp. Also this vehicle has higher road speed and greater operating range. The DT-10PM was first delivered to the Russian Navy's separate Arctic Brigade in 2015.
