The madness of the Ukrainian defense industry: how in Nezalezhnaya created the "newest tank" of scrap metal

Each time, when studying the new Ukrainian armored vehicles, experts unwittingly ask themselves about the direction in which not only Ukrainian tank construction is heading, but the entire defense industry as a whole.

The madness of the Ukrainian defense industry: how in Nezalezhnaya created the "newest tank" of scrap metal

Marketing campaigns associated with the presentation of new products are invariably accompanied by the slogan “Better than in Russia” and from time to time amaze military specialists with “depth and madness” of design ideas.

Scrap metal for the price of foreign cars

The main measure of the success of military equipment has always been and will be its combat effectiveness. The ability to make march-throws from exhibition to exhibition has never been seriously evaluated by any potential buyer. It is important to note that one of the components of the commercial success of any military equipment has always been the ability of the manufacturer not to repaint Tanksremoved from storage, and if not create fundamentally new combat vehicles, then, in any case, significantly increase the combat power of existing ones.

    The fruit of creativity of the Ukrainian farmer-inventor Boris Tkach - the armored tractor is made by remaking the T-150 tracked agricultural tractor. wassat

      In addition, the article describes that the Ukrainians have another "breakthrough", they presented the "killer" of our BMPT "Terminator" and quietly howl with happiness that these "cursed m ....." are just hysterical from this fact

      Honestly, I only found out yesterday about the existence of such a development among Ukrainians and honestly, I am sorry for the country that decides to buy it ... the T-64 tank is still a TA thing ....
      And while Ukraine is cherishing rainbow dreams, the first nine Chinese VT4s have arrived in Thailand

        Looked at this commentator. Show any BTT designer the location of the front hatches of this super car and no longer need NOTHING. About the internal filling, in our Terminator one of the most important elements is a multi-channel fire control system. Let them show on this machine. About rubbing brains with a superbase from the T-64, this is simply disrespect for the respectable public.

      I have a friend from there. For any questions (Kharkov small enterprise) using the technique "knows everything and everything" and even "mass-produces". But besides laughter, these crafts do not cause anything. And he is getting wild from this. And friends for 15 years ..

    Thai Armed Forces also refused because the new, strong armored corps paid in hard currency, after minor checks, turned out to be B / U category items - the T-80 tanks that were removed from storage. After five years of waiting for scrap at the price of a modern combat vehicle, no one wanted to buy, and the deal between the Thai army and Ukroboronrom was canceled.

    Hmm. Photos of the new buildings showed, but there was no official termination. The author is different.
    independent military expert Alexei Khlopotov.

    it’s clear, all the same, that Tarasenko has an opinion on t72 (they should never be asked for two, knowing their “love” for Tagil / Kharkov)
    in general, the whole article is an advertisement by Tagil, Khlopotov, a comparison of the Russian Federation with Ukraine (it is understandable in whose favor) the use of words that are not related to the vocabulary of specialists.
    However, there are many similar articles.

      most likely it will not, they will complete the execution (49 tanks and two ARVs), just a new contract, which Ukroboronprom expected to conclude another 50 T-84s, will not be concluded, because Chinese VT4 is already selected.
      As TsAMTO previously reported, in addition to Thai BTR-3E1 armored personnel carriers in 2011, 49 Ukrainian T-84 Oplot tanks were ordered, the delivery of which was disrupted in connection with the conflict in eastern Ukraine. Ukroboronprom transferred 10 units to the customer BM "Oplot". According to a recently revised schedule, another 10 MBTs are scheduled for delivery in April 2016. The remaining 29 vehicles were expected to be handed over in 2016-2017. At the last stage of the implementation of this contract, Ukroboronprom expected to conclude a new contract for the supply of another 50 MBT T-84 Oplot.

        at such a pace of production, patient customers are unlikely to come across.
        For 6 years it was already possible to accelerate.

    Yes, judging by the regularity of articles on similar topics, the annoyance for such a foreign policy failure as Ukraine will not fade in our hearts for a long time. Attempts to dampen the chagrin result in a trend such as "why do we need it, everything is so bad there that it’s worse than ours."
    The situation in Ukraine, including in the defense industry, is really, to put it mildly, not simple. However, a wave on this topic is regularly raised by the media of only one country. Obviously, in other countries there is something to do. Or do they have no resentment?
