The first photos of the secret "jet tank" Object 477

The domestic tank industry still holds many secrets. One of them is the creation of a promising Soviet tank Object 477. Since the development remained in Kharkov, all the data is still fragmentary, writes Messenger of Mordovia.


The first photos of the secret "jet tank" Object 477


The agency reports that in the blog of the Russian historian of tank construction, Alexey Khlopotov, there appeared photos of the running layout number two (XM-2) of the 477A Object.

“It is interesting that the Kharkov undercarriage of the tank with open caterpillars and saucer-rollers was replaced by the one currently on the Leningrad-Omsk T-80 tank. It also catches the eye that the experienced machine is “jet” - with a gas turbine, ”says the material of Lev Romanov.



Here is what Khlopotov himself writes about this: “With a mass of about 57 tons, this monster required an engine of at least 1500 hp. - and it was not in Kharkov. There was a 1200-strong 6TD-2, but also not without jambs in the form of a limited resource and a number of other charms. About 1500-strong motor had only to dream. Rescued Klimovtsy with their GTD.

It seems that the Russian engine and chassis - the only thing that worked fine in this car. All the rest remained raw. Although the project spent a lot of money.

Further, the historian notes that "Chelyabinsk Special Design Bureau" Rotor "shared with the Kharkiv citizens a tank information and control system" Brooch-1 "." According to him, "the combat vehicle never received thermal imaging sights, the gun also did not really work."

It is known that with Russian funding for some time work in Kharkov continued. However, it was then decided to completely switch to the Nizhny Tagil 195 Object. As a result, the remaining tanks in Ukraine for the third decade have simply rust in an abandoned state.

        IR sculpt over the tower does not make sense. Such an arrangement can only indicate surveillance devices, possibly a panoramic sight.

        IR spotlight was not expected. They should have installed a thermal imager and even a radar.
        But there were problems with them.

        He was especially secret in Kharkov, alas, they do not allow anyone to take a picture or come close. There is not one car, but several options. "Rebel", "Hammer", "Boxer", "Note" and so on.

        The photos that have now surfaced, I think, were taken at the end of 90x - the beginning of 2000x

      If you're on top, then this is the panoramic sight of the commander.
      To the left below is the commander’s hatch. With the thickness of the hatches on this tank, everything was in order).

    To find out once and for all whose tank school is better, I suggest Khlopotov and Tarasenko be closed for a week in a room or on an uninhabited island. Only one should remain alive. laughing

        The main thing for Petit is to paint the tank, drag it to Kiev and crowing at the expense of the great change. And then at least in scrap metal.

    It is also striking that the experimental jet engine is a gas turbine. ”

    Seem to be, Russian the engine and chassis are the only things that worked normally in this car

    How could you write such nonsense? There were then neither Russian nor Russian women, but everything was Soviet. And if someone did not know, then after the collapse of the Union, Moscow simply abandoned the design bureau and that's it. It had the status of an all-Union and therefore could become Russian. But in Moscow, then the power was divided, because the financing of work on the tank ceased. And in KB there was a meeting at which they decided to become zhovtoblakitnye or blue-white. And since Moscow didn’t care, the first ones with slogans took notice at the meeting - it’s enough to feed who knows and soon we will live in Germany. An interesting fact is that the head of the design bureau did not want to become Zhovtoblakitnye, on that his work ended. How did the tank work stop? As the snowfields stopped working, for example, work on the CIUS, on fiber-optic observation devices, etc. And there, at the stand, an automatic loader with two drums worked. Moreover, one prototype tank remained in Russia, on which this machine already stood for a 152mm gun from which they even managed to shoot at the firing range.

      You write some nonsense. How could design bureau in Ukraine remain Russian?
      Joint work on the Note and their limited funding by Russia continued almost until the end of the 90s.

    It would not be bad for us to restore this project in Russia. By modern technology, such samples can be improved. yes

      What for? We already have a direct successor to our Object 195 - the T-14 is called, and, unlike the boxer-rebel-hammer series, it’s quite functional for itself))))
