Decommissioned Russian equipment in Syria

The network posted photos of Russian military equipment in Tartus (the “sea gate” of Russia in Syria), transferred to the army of the Syrian Arab Republic. Captured on them Tanks T-62, BMP-1 armored vehicles and GAZ military trucks of the old model:


Decommissioned Russian equipment in Syria






T-62 –Soviet medium tank weighing 36,5 - 42 t (in various versions), after which MBT stood out. Development started in 1957. Adopted for use in 1961. Serially produced in 1961 - 1975. Produced approx. 20 thous. Decommissioned in 2011 g. As previously reported, the complete utilization of the fleet of tanks in storage (ca. 1 000 units) was launched in 2013. At the same time, according to Western analysts, 2 500 tanks (as of the end of 2015 g .) remain in storage. Marked supply of tanks to Syria indicate that this type of armored vehicles continues to be stored by the Russian army.
The BMP-1 has a mass of 12,6 tons. Unlike an armored personnel carrier, the first in the Soviet stories the infantry fighting vehicle was supposed to not only deliver infantry, but also support it in battle. Adopted in 1966. Produced in 1966 - 1983. Total manufactured approx. 20 thous. According to IISS, another 7 thousand machines are in storage (by 2016).
In the conditions of war with a weakly armed enemy and an acute shortage of funds in the Arab Republic, the delivery of this equipment, which has not been used in the Russian Armed Forces for a long time, seems to be quite appropriate and sufficient support from Russia for the friendly regime of Bashar Assad. It is possible that this technique is designed for militia groups, and not the regular army of Syria. Most likely, the cars will be upgraded by local craftsmen, like this BMP-1:

    Well, why not. The T-62 needs a remote control system, these are very early versions ... On the last KAZ "Drozd" even stood. I saw such troops in Baku with troops in the water and climbed nm as a child.

        For Syria, the car is a beast? With disgusting ventilation and heat from the engine? I rode it in the heat, it’s still a pleasure :) Its current chip is cross-country ability (the main thing is that there shouldn’t be deep fords), a cheap price, and ease of maintenance.

        Latakia is a mountainous country with coniferous forests. On the flag of Lebanon, which in the southern part of these mountains, cedar is generally depicted, is the main tree of those places. The presence of ship forest from ancient times gave Phenicia dominance of the seas located there.

      Many probably in the military leadership thought about the hastily written off and unsaved equipment - and regretted that the technology was written off the sea. Yes, I agree that funds are needed for its storage and maintenance, but this is relatively small money (I know because I was once the head of the storage department), and the benefit justifies it by 200%. They just ruined a lot of military equipment - either for spare parts, then plundered, or simply could not save. And it won’t come in handy as it may. You have to be thrifty ...

        Even in the first Chechen elbow, they bit that the MiG-27 was scrapped, including brand new ones with the latest aiming systems of the time. The fifth column then acted clearly. Alas, she can still do a lot.

      It was not the T-62, but the T-55AD. On the T-62 and T-80U only planned to install, but because of the collapse did not have time. After the collapse, all T-55ADs were withdrawn from service and disposed of, two tanks found in Ukraine were sold to the United States for study. We have only one left in the museums of Kubinka.

      I do not agree, judging by the photo, an additional combined case protection is installed, which speaks of the modification of the T-62M, only without gratings ... It is already overloaded so that it excludes DZ, and screens are likely to appear ...
      Reference: T-62M / "object 166M (second)" (1983) - a variant of the T-62 modernization, developed by the Uralvagonzavod design bureau, put into service in 1983. The modernization was carried out by the repair plants of the USSR Ministry of Defense. The tank is equipped with a Sheksna ATGM system, a T-72 track is used, an additional combined turret protection is installed, the hull and bottom protection is enhanced, side anti-cumulative screens are installed, and the gun is equipped with a heat-shielding casing. A part of the equipment is equipped with a laser rangefinder KTD-2 (KTD-1), a ballistic computer BV-62.

      Actually, the T-62M was sent to the Syrians and this is not an early version. This is a version of the Afghan war that already has additional armor protection for the tower (in the form of the so-called "Ilyich's eyebrows"), hull and bottom. And also the new MSA is quite suitable for the conditions of war in the SAR.

          In the troops of constant readiness T-90MS ...

          The T-90MS will not go to the Russian troops. Only the newer T-90M.
          "The T-90M tank was created as part of the Proryv-3 development work and is a further modernization of the T-90AM (Proryv-2) models, as well as its export version, the T-90SM, demonstrated back in 2011. The key difference from the previous models is a tower of a fundamentally new design with the placement of ammunition storage outside the fighting compartment, which should increase the survivability of the tank in battle.
          It is according to this option that in the near future it is planned to modernize the entire fleet of Russian T-90 and T-90A tanks "

        A. Prokhanov would be here. He would tell that the Russian Empire is still alive, and gives its strength to the Syrian people in the fight against world evil, expressed in the form of ISIS and other forces of darkness, trying to take over the World, representing the strength and power of Soviet technology that will crush demons in human form.
        What is right. The 115 mm OFS is not khukh-mukhra, from a shaitan-arba with a machine gun in the back, only small fragments will leave at a decent radius.

      As an example, they reduced the air defense forces in the neighboring garrison, bought GAZ-66 (kung, with a winch that helped more than once) through the military registration and enlistment office (there was a USSR) more than once, the owner changed after me three times, until now running without engine overhaul. I'll tell you a secret, instead of the engine number there was an asterisk (military acceptance) and I had to make tracing paper from this asterisk in the place where the number was for the traffic police. This is how quality was made. Therefore, everything will work as new, in good hands. And don’t let the fools die. hi

We remember they drove BMPs, Zil-131s from the Germans, hid a bunch of radio stations, and even the "rain" uniforms brought several cars. It was possible to buy a wrecked GAZ-66 with documents for a hundred marks, of course, enter the numbers removed from storage in the GDR and calmly go to the union. But what is interesting is that old Mazy, Krazy and Urals were sold to entrepreneurs from Belarus and Ukraine, and all new machines of the combat group were dismantled into units and handed over for scrap.

        You're lucky. Apparently you bought a GAZ-66 with a Btrov engine. Judging by the fact that there was no room. In appearance they are the same, but were not produced at the ZMZ but in Gorky at GAZ. In addition, there is another crucible and traction engine. When I served us, they brought such a baby instead of the deceased to the PAZ. So he flew with this engine)))
        Incidentally, it is easy to check .. in the BTR engine other candles similar to Ford ones. Under the big key.

        And the GAZ-53 engine has a thrust of 250 N / M ... it's less by a hundred ..
        That dramatically affects the resource .. ZMZ-53 engine is known for ever flowing oil from under the valve covers.

          bought through the draft board (there was still the USSR) GAZ-66 (kung, with a winch that helped out more than once) from the pads

          You're lucky. Apparently you bought a GAZ-66 with a Btrov engine. Judging by the fact that there was no room. In appearance they are the same, but were not produced at the ZMZ but in Gorky at GAZ. In addition, there is another crucible and traction engine. When I served us, they brought such a baby instead of the deceased to the PAZ. So he flew with this engine)))
          Incidentally, it is easy to check .. in the BTR engine other candles similar to Ford ones. Under the big key.
          Here he is.

          . Htm
          And the GAZ-53 engine has a thrust of 250 N / M ... it's less by a hundred ..
          That dramatically affects the resource .. ZMZ-53 engine is known for ever flowing oil from under the valve covers.

          1000% you guessed right, or right. But the fact is clear. hi The way it is!

      In general, the bulk of the Syrian Army armored vehicles are the same T-55,62, BMP -1. It is not surprising that they were sent such equipment. They are familiar with them, they do not need retraining, refuel, fill up the ammunition and go to war.

      To equip Assad’s army with our junk is, in my opinion, the best option. Of course, this technique must be brought to mind by adapting it to maintain a database precisely in the context of the Syrian conflict - to weigh DZ with anti-cumulative screens. Why equip the Syrians with the T-90 if the tasks they face may well be carried out with older equipment. After all, our old T-62 and T-72 in Syria will not have to confront the Abrams or Merkava ...
      Of course, you need to support Assad, but you also need to count money!

        I agree with you and the question is not only about money. Russia itself lacks new technology and distributing it to foreigners, and if they’re fighting something old themselves, it’s not just stupid, but also criminal.

    They (Syrians) are familiar with this technique, so do not retrain. At one time, technology has proven itself in armed conflicts and I will not talk about the financial side of the issue. But against the background of this, ours perfectly test new equipment in combat conditions, but on their own.

    How to understand the decommissioned? Where is it written off? Why does the decommissioned equipment carry out a CAPITAL REPAIR, they write it off from the books of account and turn it into tons, kilograms and grams of ferrous, non-ferrous and rare-earth metals, which must be handed over during disposal.
    The same equipment arrived from the warehouses where it underwent a full training course and it is fully operational, that is, it is NOT decommissioned, but DISCONTINUED and transferred

    These tanks are good, new (from storage), and the ATS is necessary, because judging by the chronicles, a rather battered equipment sometimes flashes there, it is necessary to change it, let them figure out how not to substitute them for ATGMs. Or hang DZ. And it’s better both this and that.

    I think that all the money has already been calculated in advance. This is how you look - "given away for free." First, Russia has great interests and plans in Syria, which means that the overall benefit, with the preservation of the current government, exceeds the price of these "veterans." Secondly, well, they are not written off for remelting, and, to some extent, will continue to protect our Russian borders. This is differently better than gathering dust under a tarp on the territory of the UVZ (and there are so many of them along the Tagil highway). The main thing now is that Assad is not replaced by some pro-American president.

      There are no big plans there. If they were, troops were sent in much earlier for help. Rather, they calculated the losses of the hydrocarbon market during the regime change and decided that it was more profitable to support. But Assad is better to replace after all, he did not cope with the country.

    GAZ-66 for hunters and mushroom pickers, especially if gas is supplied, is an irreplaceable thing. I’m generally for a comfortable stay, but a friend traded this for the old Moskvich-412 and we can say "cried" with happiness. He also "hacked" on it - pulled out all sorts of jeeps from rivers, swamps and lakes.
    In general, there would be an opportunity, I would have bought a GAZ-66. Especially if from "storage". Life is an unpredictable thing and such an unpretentious all-terrain vehicle, unexpectedly it can even come in handy.
