Thailand received from Ukraine the next "strongholds"


On account of this is the seventh party. Thus, the total number of tanks under this contract, delivered to Thailand, reached 36, from 49 contracted.

The remaining 13 tanks are likely to be delivered next year.

The resource reminds that last year Ukrspetsexport reached an agreement with the Thai side to postpone the completion of the contract to the “autumn of 2017 of the year”, however, as a result, this period was not fulfilled.



“Contract No. USE-18.2-356-D / K-11 worth over $ 240 million was signed by Ukrspetsexport GC in early September 2011 of the year and provided for the supply of the Thai army 49 BM Oplot-T tanks and two armored repair-evacuation tanks machines based on them, with a contract expiration date by the end of 2014. Thailand actually became the launch customer for the Oplot BM tanks developed by the Kharkov Design Bureau named after Kh. Morozov, representing the further development of the family of tanks T-80U / UD ", - stated in the material.

The agreed shipping schedule for the contract was as follows: December 2012 of the year - 5 machines, August 2013 of the year - 15 machines, December 2013 of the year - 15 machines, August 2014 of the year - 14 machines.

However, all the deadlines were disrupted by the Ukrainian side, starting with the first delivery - the first batch of tanks was made only in October 2013 of the year.

    They wanted to put everything in the 2017 year, the last 13 tanks are already ready, but the Thai acceptance committee should only come to Kharkov, and there are a lot of bureaucratic procedures, so they will not have time to fulfill the promise laughing

    They say that 2 BREM "Athlete" on the basis of the Bastion has already been sent to Thailand

        I can spread about the Russian Federation, just learning military affairs properly, so I know a lot of topics wink

        Ukrainian topics are now the most relevant, so I try to post a lot of information on it, because people often do not "fumble" in this, but write comments saturated with purely politics (and not a military theme).

        Judging by the four rounded objects, these are engines. Although, I could be wrong.

        How could you raise the MTO roof in the photo? belay laughing Where did you get that car without engines? Cars in the foreground, with towers deployed back. Packages on pallets are most likely an additional set of geese, but 3 boxes on the side are very similar to engines (maybe additional ones by contract).

      the last 13 tanks are ready

      in October, Oplot No. 41 was lit up at the test site, and in early November, the final batch of tanks was tested. It is difficult to say when they will be loaded, under NG or immediately after it.

      Did they tell you this?

      > That's when they start to pour in, then a big hemorrhoids will begin

      So far, the Thais have a maximum about horseradish pixel paint and screens complain, they did not experience any problems with the tanks during operation. They constantly drive them in the exercises.



      Side screens wear out relatively easily during extended use. Often they are removed and chased without screens over Thai mud.

        With stronghold screens, the trouble in general is very cumbersome in the city or in the fishing line for a long time. I always in such cases wondered what the designers are guided by when creating such a thing. They don’t understand how the tank will be operated? because after a day of war he will no longer have screens.

    So they did not get rid of the Soviet bureaucracy? I am disappointed, but where is advanced Europe, and maybe there are just accustomed to "lubrication"?

      Um ... what?
      Oplot-T / M was created on the basis of the T-84 "Oplot", which was created on the basis of the T-80UD. You are confused with the T-64BM "Bulat", which is only a modernization of the T-64.

      The fact that the tank was unsuccessful has been known for a long time, because the T-64 chassis is not designed for more weight than it was originally planned, and the Bulat is too heavy because of the VDZ and other hinged things.

          Yeah! Rollers with a low profile bandage, shortened shock absorbers, pre-twisted torsion bars made of super-super-spring steel? What brains powder?
