The "Shtora" complex increased the survivability of the Algerian T-90CA

14
Algerian Armed Forces are currently one of the largest operators of the Russian main combat tank T-90 With about 300 modifications of the SA, the ground forces of this African state are second only to India and, in fact, Russia.


The Algerian version of the "ninetieth" is distinguished by the installation of a powerful air conditioner, the presence of an advanced version of the night thermal sight. Also on the tanks were mounted sensors that capture the laser radiation of high-precision guidance weapons and rangefinder sights of the Shtora-1 optical-electronic countermeasures complex.

The "Shtora" complex increased the survivability of the Algerian T-90CA


These devices dramatically increased the survivability of the tank on the battlefield, since, having received information that the combat vehicle was illuminated by an enemy laser, the crew could promptly hide behind an impenetrable smoke screen and find a reliable shelter.

On the first machines that entered the Algerian army, two infrared searchlights were missing to disrupt the guidance of precision weapons, they appeared a little later. In the summer of this year, photographs of the exercises were published, where T-90 with anti-missile searchlights were already massively involved.

It is difficult to say how the Syrian experience of using the T-90 influenced the choice of the Algerian military. Quite possibly, they decided to acquire a complete set of "Curtains-1" even before the appearance in the Middle East of modern Russian-made cars. However, with full confidence we can say that now the Algerian tankers are very pleased with the timely choice of their command, reports RG-Force.

    And this, in turn, indicates that it is not technology that is fighting, but people who know how to use it. So if Indians don’t have their hands on it, there’s nothing to kick on equipment.

    Device data sharply increased tank survivability on the battlefield, because, having received information that the combat vehicle was illuminated by an enemy laser, the crew could promptly hide behind an impenetrable smoke screen and find reliable shelter.

    "Increased"? Where did they raise it? What are the statistics of the "sharp rise"?

    However, with full confidence we can say that now Algerian tankers are very happy with the timely choice of their command, reports “RG-Force”.

    What kind of agitation? Did the author read reviews from Algerian tankers?

      On July 14, 2016, a party of 67 T-90CA tanks departed from the Russian port of Ust-Luga to Algeria aboard Ocean Pride and Ocean Energy transport vessels, and is currently sailing to the port of Skikda in Algeria. This next batch under the 2014 contract for the purchase of 200 T-90CA by Algeria. Deliveries under this contract began at the end of 2015 and will continue until 2017. Taking into account the last order, the total number of T-90CA tanks in service with the Algerian army will reach 540 units.

    Against "Milan", "Baby", "Competition", old versions of TOW - "Curtain" will be effective. Against the TOW-2 (BGM-71E / F / G / H) versions, the "Curtain" is actually useless - an infrared emitter with its own modulator is installed there. The "curtain" was good at the time - at the end of the 80's and in the first half of the 90's.

      And for Javelin and Spike, the "Shtor" is just a dream illuminating the tank for many kilometers.

        One of the few restrictions "Javelina" is the radius of its action - only 2,5 kilometers. Although this is sufficient for most combat situations, old missiles like the TOW or the Cornet boast the ability to launch at a distance of five or more kilometers.

        Russia also understands the capabilities of the Javelin, and its latest tanks demonstrate some countermeasures aimed at combating them. The new Relict and Mekhanit dynamic defense systems have a double layer of protective plates that are fired from the radar to destroy tandem warheads. The Shtora active defense systems and the newest Afghanit can also use non-lethal multispectral grenades and signal missiles in order to hide the tank from infrared seekers or distract the latter to other heat sources.

    maybe it’s so (let’s say so) -but 20 ..T -000 (without any curtains or wallpaper)))) they will tear your tricked Merkavas like an ace ... just because there are more of them (simple mathematics)
