The fact of Vietnam’s acquisition of a Russian party tanks T-90S aroused significant interest in neighboring China, reports Rossiyskaya Gazeta with reference to the portal mil.news.sina.com.cn.


Supplies of Russian tanks to Vietnam aroused interest in China


The tropical monsoon climate of Vietnam with its abundant precipitation and high humidity, as well as the difficult terrain, makes it difficult to use heavy machinery in this country. Nevertheless, tanks are indispensable, they are needed to support infantry, the resource writes.

Assessing the state of the current armored fleet of Vietnam, the author notes that combat vehicles have been in service for more than 30 years. “There are even samples adopted half a century ago: for example, Vietnam still operates T-34. Therefore, the desire to buy new equipment is fully justified, ”the article says.

The publication calls the T-90S the best choice, since the characteristics of the Russian machine are most optimal for Southeast Asia: “The Russian tank weighs only 46 tons, it will be easier for it to overcome difficult-to-reach parts of the terrain. Firepower and armor protection must also satisfy the Vietnamese military. "

True, the author asks the question "how T-90 is adapted to the hot and humid environment" of Vietnam. In his opinion, Russian tanks "tolerate winter frosts more easily." Allegedly, in India, they "could not stand the heat and experienced serious problems."

The meaning of such articles is obvious - “if tanks exist for a tropical climate, then only Chinese ones,” the newspaper notes.

According to Alexei Khlopotov, an expert on armored vehicles, Russian T-90Cs can successfully operate at temperatures around 50 degrees Celsius and above, which is what their operation in India has shown.

The "nineties" for the most part serve just in hot countries - Algeria, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Uganda. A separate theme is combat use in Syria, here the Nizhny Tagil combat vehicles demonstrated their best qualities. At present, our armored vehicles are equipped with high-performance air conditioners, which significantly improve the working capabilities of the crew and equipment of the tank. Therefore, this publication, most likely, aims to question the quality of Russian technology in order to promote its own,
explained Khlopotov.

        hi At least, the Chinese do not spray the T-90 with mud from the hoses, as some do. wink And the fact that the Vietnamese want to put their tanks is understandable.

          Paul hi China has now successfully delivered VT-4 tanks to Thailand. In general, the tank came out very "Stuffed" with modern devices. Cameras, compact laser irradiation sensors, machine gun installation with an autonomous guidance channel. Plus, this is a BPS of a modern level with solid armor penetration. I think that the Ukrainian tank industry will be ousted from Thailand - this is almost a fact, and they will oust it from Pakistan, almost completely sure. And they are interested in the Vietnamese market.

                No, I ask you not to turn my words inside out. I meant that those who were opponents yesterday or even the day before yesterday could well cooperate. There are enough such examples: China-Russia, Japan-USA, Russia-USA, etc. But each side retains its position.

                    “Both hate the Arabs.”

                During the Vietnam War, China supplied Vietnam with a breakthrough in military equipment, weapons and equipment of the entire nomenclature. Including T-69 tanks (Chinese version of the Soviet T-55) and F-6 aircraft (Chinese version of the MiG-19).

      But they cannot buy a lot of them, therefore, they act on the principle: "Goal is a cunning invention."

      TSAMTO, 11 of January... Vietnam has launched a large-scale modernization program for T-54/55 tanks, Soha.vn reports, noting that despite the recent order in Russia for 64 new T-90SKs, the upgraded T-54 / 55s will form the basis of the country's armored fleet in the near future.
      According to the resource, the upgrade option under the designation T-54M3 has been developed for a long time. The project was carried out jointly with Israel, which supplied the 105-mm gun M-68 to replace the 100-mm gun D-10Т2С, meteorological sensors, a modern telescopic sight with an IR channel, and sets of additional composite and dynamic reservations.
      However, later, due to the high cost of the project, the M-68 tank gun had to be abandoned, however, the tanks began to be equipped with an additional guard that minimized the cumulative effect, and the electronic components of the tank were protected by special modules.
      More recently, a photograph was taken taken at the Z153 factory, where the T-54 / 55 tanks were made, which featured at least two modernized tanks. Later reports appeared that some of the T-54 / 55 tanks were at different stages of modernization. Thus, the resource Soha.vn concludes that Vietnam has launched a large-scale program for the modernization of T-54 / 55 tanks, taking as its basis the T-54M3 version

      Vietnamese are very practical and pragmatic. For example, they ordered a factory for the production of automatic machines to Israel, and not to our traders, who are sure that Vietnam will buy the factory only from Russia, under any conditions, at any price and with any composition of equipment.

    It seems that the Indians were experiencing problems because they clamped on the kondeas to deliver, and these are their problems and not 90.
