Polish Defense Ministry announced plans to modernize three hundred tanks

34
Polish military began market analysis on possible modernization tanks PT-91, based on the licensed version of the Soviet T-72M1. It is reported by Jane's with reference to the statement of the Deputy Minister of Defense of Poland Bartosz Kownacki, made in an interview with Gazeta Polska Codziennie.


We want to upgrade PT-91
- said the deputy head of the defense department
We focus on the price of about 4 million zlotys for the modernization of one tank (about 1,1 million dollars - ed.). We have about 300 such combat vehicles, so the cost of the program as a whole will exceed 1 billion zł


Polish Defense Ministry announced plans to modernize three hundred tanks


The procedure for analyzing and evaluating offers will last 18 months. Warsaw considers upgrading the PT-91 tanks as an interim solution, before a new generation of tanks will enter the troops. In particular, PT-91 should get new 125-mm ammunition, which will increase their anti-tank capabilities.

In September, at the largest defense exhibition in Poland MSPO, which was held in Kielce, Bumar-Łabędy, part of Polska Grupa Zbrojeniowa (PGZ), presented a possible upgrade package for PT-91.

The improved tank is proposed to equip with the active armor of the new generation ERAWA and equip it with a 2A46MS caliber 125 mm / L46 caliber made in Slovakia with an upgraded automatic loader and SAVAN-15 fire control system.

The driver’s seat will be equipped with a PNK-72 Radomka night vision device and a KDN-1 Nyks round-the-clock camera. Additional equipment will include a TKN-3Z night-vision sight for the commander and a SOD circular viewing system.

Bumar-Łabędy also proposes to strengthen the PT-91 suspension, upgrade the manual gearbox and install the S-12U engine with HP 850 power.

In addition, Jane's learned about the plans of the Polish Ministry of Defense to modernize in Czechoslovakia self-propelled howitzers vz.2018 Dana with the wheel formula 2020х77 in 8-8. At the same time, the local military intend to keep the 152-mm gun and not to replace it with the standard NATO 155-mm howitzer. We intend to focus on improving the Tatra T-815 VT Kolos chassis, reports "Voennoe.RF"

    possible modernization of the PT-91 tanks, based on the licensed version of the Soviet T-72M1

    The main thing is to have enough mind. And then to create your tank - it turned out to be not enough fool

        Integration is with friends, or at least not with enemies. And what kind of Poles are friends now, if on every corner Russia is called the main enemy?

          And I understand integration, Volodymyr, –– it’s not worth it to rest on the creation of your own something, which is not a fact that it’ll turn out good when someone’s possible good buy ... For example, I have a German chainsaw, with which I have prepared several trailers of firewood for the winter ... They all shared with us and Rodney, so I'm not a patriot? smile

            Completely - for! A good thing can be bought and exchanged for barter. Why reinvent the wheel? But the concept of "integration" implies the interconnection of two entities in any field. Do we have much in common with the Poles? And in the military field - especially. It sometimes seems to me that the last adequate Poles were four tankers and a dog lol

        T72B3 about. For 16 years he was very fit (this is the one with the relict, 2A46M-5 and V-92S2F from T90). The Polish version looks more modest.

    How are the Poles still not abandoned tanks developed in the USSR? Only due to lack of funds. Otherwise, they would have taken it and caved in front of the United States by purchasing from them hundreds of 3 new Abrams.

    300 tanks brought together is already a tank division. Two times to refuel, in Minsk and Smolensk and all arrived, Moscow. Why are all of the Westerners drawn to the east, to us? That’s whom you don’t take from our traitors, because they all break to the west, but as soon as they get used to it in the west, they immediately turn their faces and begin to bark to the east. Inexplicable natural anthropological phenomenon.

    From the ongoing modernization, it can be understood that the calibers remain the same, not NATO. Modernization itself is also only in the Slavic countries - Slovakia and the Czech Republic. Thus, in which case Poland can be both yours and ours, depending on the current situation.
