Algeria considers Russian tanks to be the best in the world


According to the expert, in 2006, Algeria announced and conducted an absentee tender for the modernization of T-72 tanks with the participation of leading developers.

"Research and Production Corporation Uralvagonzavod JSC and UKBTM JSC under the auspices of Rosoboronexport JSC made a decision to participate in this tender. In the same 2006 year, in the shortest time, according to the documentation developed by UKBTM, and with the use of a modernization kit, refinement was completed and testing of the product at the customer’s site, ”the material states.



The Russian project made a positive impression on customers, with the result that in May 2008 of the year a contract was signed for the modernization of T-72 tanks in the republic.

It is reported that the “tank” Product 172М2А “modernized in the interests of the Algerian armed forces from the base product T ‑ 72М1 was distinguished by an SLA, including the multichannel gunner sight“ Sosna ”, a remote-controlled machine gun installation, a curtain system”. The new 2А46М5 gun is installed on the upgraded cars.



There was a proposal to strengthen the protection by installing the Relict Relict Department, but the Algerian command decided to save and upgrade by improving fire capabilities, leaving the protection issues "for later."



In total, the 159 linear tanks and the 21 commander were modernized. In total - 180 units.

          You are joking. In general, I do not share the USSR and Russia. Yes, we lost the Cold War (probably), lost part of the territory and population, but the country is the same

        they will become the best ONLY after winning some sort of xxx, when the surviving Algerian tankers will become the Winners and the "best tankers in the world."
        every time you have to confirm your "best"

      Russia is the successor of the USSR, therefore, to say the USSR - Russia is correct except for the difference in the time of existence. Unlike the republics of the former USSR. Well, I agree about the article, the stuffing is about nothing ...

    The weakest spot was left "for later." Or did not satisfy DZ "Relic"?

    Maybe the Syrian experience will correct their brains?

    I once thought that the Skorokhod shoes were the best in the world. lol If we consider that in Algeria there were never other tanks besides the Soviet ones (except for the French ones in the 50), then why not consider “Russian tanks the best in the world.”? hi

        Let's not pathos. The T-72 is a perfectly normal tank for its class and its time. After upgrading, it certainly became even better. Point.
        Algerians do not know the other. For them, he is the best in the world, because there is no other and will not be soon. hi
        By the way, no one has long attacked Algeria. In 1962, Algeria becomes an independent and even (hahaha!) Socialist state! For almost 60 years, they have been ruining themselves in endless internal feuds - coups, "spring", civil wars, recalling the golden days "under the yoke of the French colonialists." hi

          To whom powder - then ...? Until the 90s, absolutely calm situation in the country. For 4 years he worked at the turn of the year 80, a hundred kilometers from the border with Marroco, with which there was tension, but this was not felt at all. And then not only Algeria was planted with "orange poison". Of course, you do not know this and it is not interesting who ruined a beautiful country with friendly people. Moreover, in the 90s eltsinoids threw them to the mercy of predators. Personnel from aviation and tank forces were recalled from military camps ...

          in Iraq, as they like to say, everything is not so clear. In general, in 1991 it was leaked by everyone who could only, including and the USSR.

          and Libya at one time?

          in 2010, tanks were burned from the air, after crushing half-dead air defense.
          What's the problem?
          And what can a tank oppose to an airplane?

            The title does not correspond to the content ... From the article, Algeria modernized what was, moreover, krivinko, cheap and for a long time .. They didn’t talk about the best tank (because it needs to have something else to compare) ...

    do these kind gentlemen have experience operating other tanks besides ours? I doubt it ... so the best or not is not for them to judge.
