T-80U in South Korea


The journalists captured an episode of the exercises of the 3 Tank Brigade, during which the crews of armored vehicles practiced the maneuvering and firing of the 125-mm smooth-bore gun and the 12,7-mm anti-aircraft machine gun. At the same time, there was an abnormal heat, which did not affect the implementation of the tasks assigned to the military personnel.



T-80U were delivered to South Korea in 1990-s in the number of 80 units. At the moment they are in service with the two battalions of the 30 tank tank brigade.

    There were rumors about the return of some of these tanks to Russia and further modernization for the needs of Moscow Region.

    News for 20 years. T 80U were transferred to Korea for debts. in the 90th. They are used in training exercises as opponents for the Korean army. The fact that they are in perfect condition, does the honor of the Korean military

      In the 90s, tanks could have gone to South Korea for a decent "pullback" in exchange for women's pads. laughing

      What's the point?
      Scare your own tankers?
      The North Koreans, perhaps, still have no analogues.
      They have them in linear units in service. And they are gradually being replaced, since they have already played their role as a "transition tank" from the old American "Patton" to national-developed vehicles.

    T-80 is a great tank, but Koreans in the last 10 years
    produce their own, and very good.

      Are you talking about Black Panther? And what do you think, honestly, as they say, after all, which tank is the best by far?

        There is definitely no better one, in my opinion.
        By "categories":
        To support infantry in open areas - T-90, T-80 and Leo-2.
        For a tank-against-tank battle - Abrams.
        For urban battle - Merkava-4

          With a nigra loader, a huge "zaman" and without the possibility of firing rockets?
          Feels "balanced" approach. ^ _ ^

            Amrams frontal armor with uranium plates uniquely
            more powerful than any of its competitors. Distinguishing the OMS compensates
            slower manual charging. Abrams OBPS - up to 85 cm of the length of the uranium rod - are the most powerful of the existing ones.
            In a face-to-face shootout, Abrams is more likely to beat the competition.
            A well-known shortcoming of Abrams is the frankly weak reservation of the sides of the case.
            The feed basket with shells is vulnerable, the defeat of which immediately leaves the tank without ammunition.

              Once again I repeat about the huge "zaman". Its presence greatly discounts the fatness of Abrashi. And about the missiles - the same T-90 or Merkava can knock him out of a distance at which Abrash is still not even able to start firing.

                These missiles - that of the T-90, that of Merkava - are weak in armor-piercing.
                They fly far, but pierce weakly.
                (Not comparable to Cornet or TOU).
                Therefore, in a tank duel, it is more reasonable to compare the exchange of fire with OBPS.
                KAZ OBPSs do not intercept, DZ - almost does not help.
                Only multilayer passive armor, with inserts, with ceramics, or uranium plates.

                The gap is not that big. The upper frontal plate is horizontal.
                At least it’s harder to get in than the mechanic’s hatch
                top plate T-90.

                  Weak on penetration. If you have not seen what a 30 mm shell from an BMP-2 does with a tank, then you can not fight at all. Deaf, blind and no will.

                  Bullshit fuss. Well, LAHAT is really up to a maximum of 800mm equivalent - here you are behind the Invar-M1 with its 900mm. But even if you shoot LAHAT - it’s already 6-12(!) missiles fired before Abrash can at least on his own marginal firing line exit. Those. the tank will already be at least seriously disabled. Least. If he was lucky at all, and all the hits went to the most protected places (which is very unlikely). By the way, the “safe maneuvering angle” at Abrasha is only 15 degrees. And against Invar-M1 it will be even worse.
                  Those. we have a situation - the duel has not yet essentially begun, and one of the opponents is already disabled, or even got a knockdown. But you continue to believe that as the "anti-tank" Abrash - the best. Faith is a private matter for everyone.
                  The gap is not that big.

                  You're right. It is just huge - in the whole projection.

                    Tank missiles - NOT "shot-forgot." They must be guided by the laser the entire distance to the target. The greater the distance, the more lost the bonus for escorting the rocket.
                    This will paralyze your tank. And therefore there will be no 6-12 shots.
                    Therefore, in Israel, Lahat was removed from the tanks. Ineffectively. Lahat is launched from a helicopter or a drone from above on the turret and tank engine.

                      Will be. At least with the Reflex-M complex (Invar from there). Read its specifications. Works when the carrier (i.e. tank) moves at speeds up to 30 km / h и for moving targets at speeds of up to 70 km / h. In this case, the hitability is not less than 0,8. With a gap of 2 km, which Abrash must overcome before reaching the firing line - these are 5-10 missiles (and if you also back off, it will just be 6-12). Statements from the manufacturer’s website, by the way. Not from the ceiling.

                The explosion goes out. The crew is usually saved.
                Leaves the tank later. This is verified in Yemen, where the Hussites
                hit the shell basket a couple of times. The detonation explosion is impressive
                but the tankers survived

      vague doubts torment me :) I recall an epic attack, well, just not very bad and expensive leopards. which ended with the advent of famous shots of lined equipment. a country without history and a tank building school is unlikely to create anything worthwhile in this area.

        The tactics failed the Turk. Tanks did not maneuver, they stood. Yes, substituting
        sides. Almost all penetrations are in the sides of the tower. Although one seems to be the forehead of the tower.
        But Leo-2 (like all others) must be equipped with KAZ - no doubt.

    Interestingly, they upgraded them for themselves? The tankman cheerfully told so, the conder is one hundred percent standing there.

    The tanks are not bad, they still run. I understand that the black panther turned out to be expensive and cut the initial amount for the purchase. They will probably do just as we will, will develop K1 modernization programs.
