Militants succeeded in completely blowing up the Syrian army’s T-62

During the fighting in Syria Tanks T-62M traditionally demonstrated high security. There are a lot of photo and video materials on the web how these combat vehicles can withstand the hit of various anti-tank guided missiles, including American TOWs, writes Messenger of Mordovia.


Militants succeeded in completely blowing up the Syrian army’s T-62


Tanks, of course, failed. But never did anything fatal. Observers even had the impression that the Syrian army was losing more of such weapons, simply throwing them during the unexpected attack of terrorists.



“However, it also happens that even the most proven technology fails. During the fighting in the village of Abu Kahf. An anti-tank guided missile hit a standing T-62M CAA. As a result, the 41-ton tank turned into a pile of scrap metal, ”writes material author Dmitry Lemeshko.



Probably, the strike was placed in the shells placed in the stern of the tank, which exploded. If there was a crew in the car, then his fate is unenviable, he notes.

      If there are instructions on how to deal with Western tanks indicating weaknesses, it is foolish to think that the West does not have something like that. And not all barmaleis turned up with this instruction - someone could quite carefully study and apply.

          Greetings. I wanted to know about the video you posted:
          1. Did you hit it exactly? But there, the rocket seemed to hit the top of the tower with a small fire from above. And only then something blazed ...
          2. Why did the crew leave the tank if it was without serious damage, fire? You can also go down the hill to the ravine and evacuate there. After all, the second missile the tank will destroy.

              Yes there was no fire there. The actions of the crew were instant, like all cowards: if they shoot, then flee immediately. These runners did not even try to look around and take measures to save the equipment. And I am “touched” by the cohesion of the flight of all the Syrian units located nearby (and even at a considerable distance). Everyone is running! Why are they running ?! Where are they running ?!
              If we fought like the Arabs, then we would have had no state for a long time.

          The first video is strange, the impression is that the tank was not injured and they threw it, and then the barmale throws a grenade into its hatch.
          And according to the second, it’s not at all clear what was damaged, if all three so quickly dumped, it means they are alive or more or less intact. The tank might well have been combat-ready, but the second missile will burn an empty tank am . Fiddled these Syrians with "free" tanks. If they, like us, during the Second World War, were half-starved at the hands of adolescents and women in three shifts, then they would not have left them.

            The Syrians, in principle, are not able to lay down their lives to defend their homeland. The number of heroes from the volunteer corps is negligible compared to the millions of loafers who continue their studies at universities, go to work — from work, to the market — from the market ... Therefore, the Syrians did not create their own state, but received an evenly cut piece of territory from their hands the powerful of this world (however, like the neighbors)

    Probably, the blow fell on the shells located in the rear of the tank, which exploded.

    Probably, the person writing about the tanks, for some reason, does not suspect that the engine and transmission are located in the aft of the tank, and the shells are placed in the fighting compartment under the tower. Especially for Dmitry Lemeshko I’ll clarify - this is somewhere in the middle ...

        The T-62, as a result of the 1973 war in Israel, was generally rated highly.
        Its offensive capabilities - a gun, OBPS, sights - are good.
        And traditionally a great running gear.
        The armor protection and crew comfort were low.
        They were afraid that Soviet designers would increase their armor protection and then
        105 mm cumulative shells of Israeli tanks Centurion and M-48 / M-60 will cease it
        punch.
        But an inspection of the Syrian T-72 that was lined in Lebanon found that the armor was practically
        not intensified, but AZ appeared. AZ is not scared of the Israelis, since the high
        rate of fire only helps in the oncoming battle of tanks at a short distance,
        that the situation is not so frequent in reality.

    The sides of the T-62, like the T-72 - if there is no DZ, are very weak.
    ATGM rocket penetrates them effortlessly.
    Next, where will the jet get. If the tank has a lot of shells - detonation.
    At the same time, the T-72 e is even more dangerous than its T-62.
    If there are few shells, it can do with a gradual internal
    by the fire. Then the crew can be saved.

        They are below, but the charges are open and above the shells. Kumm.stray spray, punching
        and everything inside, hurt one and detonation begins.

        “Warrior” didn’t mean what you are writing about. Well, yes, in the T-72 and T-90 rounds in the AZ are horizontal, the carousel itself is on the floor of the fighting compartment; in the T-64 and T-80, the shots are arranged vertically and are located around those who are sitting in the tower, it is of the so-called “cabin” type ... it's the alphabet, and everyone knows that. I think he meant that the shells of powder charges were made of cardboard impregnated with toluene ... not the most fire-resistant construction, as you know ... much weaker than the steel sleeve of a unitary shot. In this sense, the T-72 / T-90 is safer than the T-64 / T-80, since its rollers effectively shield the AZ carousel. And the T-62, it turns out, is even less dangerous, because he has gunpowder inside the sleeves ... but the old woman also has a flogging.

    Dear expert (theoretical), any tank, even Merkava, makes its way into the bosom simply with a bang, sometimes even just from the RPG-7 or even from the Spear.

      From RPG-7 Merkava does not break through either from the side or from behind. This is verified
      repeatedly in Gaza. But ATGMs with a diameter of 150 mm and above are side
      hinged panels pierce in 2 cases out of 3 approximately. This is according to Lebanon statistics 2006.
      Therefore, I had to put Trophy.
      In addition, Merkava is the only tank in the world where the tower top is heavily armored.
      At the same time, I admit that Merkava’s frontal armor is not one of the strongest.

          If we talk about a double successive hit in the same place, then yes.
          The first rocket will spread the ceramics, and the second will pierce the armor in a bare place.
          But this is a very rare option. With such bad luck, the T-90's forehead will break through if the first rocket uses a DZ box, and the second - in the same place - breaks through the armor. But, I repeat, this is rare in battle.

    I am sure that thousands and thousands of our guys who were “lucky” in the war to remain alive, but crippled, sincerely and fervently envy this crew. If, for example, I had a choice - to die in a tank from an explosion of ammunition or to live-to be crippled by a helpless and useless vegetable, I would unconditionally choose the first.
