Syrian T-55 with DZ "Contact-1"


In June 1982, the Contact-1 development work began on the development of dynamic protection for tanks T-80, T-72B, T-64A, T-62 and T-55. Duration of OCD - 6 months. In January 1983, the State Commission signed an act on the implementation of the ROC. By the end of 1984, almost the entire tank fleet was equipped with mounted DZ kits.

T-55 - medium tank developed by the design bureau of plant No. 183 (later - Uralvagonzavod software) based on the medium tank T-54B in 1958. It differs from T-54B by a more powerful engine, increased ammunition, increased capacity of the fuel system, introduction of anti-nuclear protection, advanced equipment, installation of smoke equipment of the new type, etc. Adopted on 8 in May 1958. Serial production at the plant number 183 (UVZ) started in June 1958, and in the first base modification completed in July 1962. Also T-55 tanks were made at the plant number 174 (Omsk, with 1958 g.) and at the factory number XXUMX (Kharkov). Repeatedly modernized (75 g., 1970 g., 1975 g.). The latest Russian tanks T-1983 were taken out for disposal from the Kuril Islands in 2011.

      Well, firstly, they’re much less likely to board, because it is almost always covered by a mask of the terrain.
      And secondly, the T-54 / 55 / 62 tanks much better tolerate shelling with cumulative ammunition because they have shells for the gun - unitary, in metal sleeves.

        Well, let this not be believed, 50 percent, or even all 60 videos of tank destruction laid out by barmaleys occur on board or in the stern of the tank.

      Usually 50 percent of hits are in the tower. And in Syria, where tankers often shoot because of an embankment or because of some other hiding places, I think the percentage of hits in the tower is much higher than 50 percent.

    Our throws? And then 90% of the tanks are bald. This is suicide.
