      As always. They announced victory, and then quietly finish off for a long time. Currently, T-34 tanks are still fighting in different parts of the world. While the tank is operational and ammunition is a formidable weapon. In skillful hands.

        Declare this one thing, and do a completely different thing. It’s like they killed all the militants in Mosul, but there are still blocks where the government still doesn’t rush about. It's too early to relax too much work, just as in Syria it is still worth liberating all the cities on the banks of the Euphrates.

      They began to tear the Ishilovites in all directions, the most important thing is that the Syrians, Iraqis and others believed in themselves.

      The absence of a “fungus” of the FVU in front of the loader’s hatch indicates that it is a T-55. And yet, both of these tanks are the TOP of the post-war generation of our tanks.

        yes, it’s good against the tanks of his contemporaries, but it is poorly protected against anti-tank weapons and, as evil, the rebels in Syria have a large number of anti-tank weapons

          To begin with, everything has its time.
          There are in Romania, Ukraine and we have excellent options for modifying this tank to the T-72B level, but there is one “BUT", and a large one. This is money. It’s easier to buy one T-72B than to upgrade to its T-54/55 level ...
          So, something like that ... But still, WHAT is he tenacious and nimble ... Especially with the V-46M engine, a rocket, from the T-80 relatives

        (and there are) good, but for a tank battle - worthless. The armor is frail.
        English 105 mm tank gun L7 Kumm. shell
        from 3-3.5 km pierced their armor anywhere and from the first shell.
        And, as a rule, T-54/55 shells detonated, the tower flew away ... sad

          But how many of your gunners could get into the tank at such a distance? The only recorded case and that, getting into the T-62, and so the battles were at much shorter distances and smiling at the Syrians military happiness, it is not yet known how everything could have worked out.

            At that time, we had ultra-long firing of tankers.
            Reservist tankers of the Centurions told me how they brought to the training camp
            old basketballs. Additional blanks
            begged from ensigns, bribing them with beer. And for the argument (for the same beer) figured
            from 3-3.5 km on orange balls. They said they shot down with a 2nd shell.
            Be that as it may, it helped in the battles. Centurions set for the mounds, putting
            gun down. And when the Arabs came closer to their crown 1-1.5 km, then they still had 1/3 of the tanks.
            But when in the Golan in 1973 there was a terrible night tank grinder from several hundred meters, then, of course, the Israelis had no advantage. T-62 OBPS punched through the Centurions ...

            TBTR Akhzarit was hung from the outside with all crap so that
            increase survivability, but she could not confidently hold an RPG.
            The first tank to deal with the RPG-7 was the Merkava-3.

            Hundreds of captured T-54 and T-55, which
            Before the beginning of the 90s, sites in the center of the country were jammed ...
            These are the ones that did not detonate after breaking through and
            which "darned": brewed holes from the cum.

              And that they were all hit- "from 3-3.5 km"?
              No, of course, mainly the tanks were either abandoned by the crews due to cowardice or for some technical reasons.
              So we don’t need to tell our "Jewish stories", but give examples of the T-54/55 defeat, as you put it - "from 3-3.5 km pierced their armor anywhere and from the first shell"

                Penetration kumm. the projectile is NOT distance dependent.
                Even if the shell at the end bumps on the armor and the powerful jet - it will pierce.
                Just like when shot at point blank range.
                1) The L7 gun had exceptional ballistics - hence super-long range hits.
                They even put it on the early Abrams, and now they put it on the most modern Strikers.
                2) Its 105 mm cum. the shells were powerful enough to pierce the T-54 / 55's frontal armor
                With the advent of the T-72 with a DZ, it ceased to be effective (although in Israel they still keep 105 mm cumulative shells in reserve, like sub-caliber for Merkava-4)

          There is in Iraq (as if in the rear) another area under ISIS with the center
          in the city of Al-Khawaja (near the province of Kirkuk).
          They will be tackled after Tal Afar. And then the Iraqis will clean up
          Syrian-Iraqi border.

    Of course, this tank is still in demand, as it does not have special excesses. The war is going on counter-guerrilla. On the tank, it seems to be more convenient anyway than without it.

      In general, there is a huge cemetery of military equipment in Iraq after the defeat of the Saddam army where hundreds if not thousands of T-54/55/56 and other weapons are here, the Iraqis are gradually recovering them.
