Catching up with “Armata”: the Germans showed their system of active protection of tanks

11
German weapons Rheinmetall demonstrated the test frames of the first domestic ADS armored active protection system.


According to the developers, the main difference between their systems and other KAZs is the small size of the striking elements that are fired towards the anti-tank missile. In addition to this, the complex itself is located at the top of the armored vehicle, and the menacing projectile is intercepted at the very last moment. This reduces the scatter area of ​​the striking elements. Because of this, ADS is less dangerous for soldiers who may be near an armored vehicle at the time of its shelling.



Rheinmetall specialists are confident that their active protection complex can be installed on any armored vehicle. Depending on the modification, the mass of KAZ can vary from 145 to 600 kg.



Recall that the latest Russian T-14 tank on the Armata platform also received an active defense system. However, by far the only a tank in the world on which KAZ is serially installed, is the Israeli Merkava MK4.

    It remains to compose a platform similar to Armata and that’s all ... absolutely nothing remains. wassat

      What for? With accuracy and mobility, Leo number 2 has no problems. Maybe the gun will be replaced on occasion, but this is, so to speak, working moments ...

      I strongly doubt that the Almaty platform was generally dopped, especially the engine, but when they finish it, it is unlikely to be more modern, more technologically advanced than the modern Leo2 platform, I mean the bathtub, transmission, automatic transmission, engine. And AMAP ADS already in 2009 presented, appeared, then the video disappeared, but the screenshots remained and this video seems to be from there. This is KAZ for light vehicles, for any in general. It is strange to read that the Germans say they are catching up with the Russian Federation and the declared Afghanit .., this is stated after we see Afghanit in action.

          NEXUS this video, by the way, since 2009)) Demonstration of AMAP-ADS clients. But Armata is hiding and hiding something for something, no matter what they say, the breakdown in cooperation with Nekster and Rheinmetall most likely influenced. Now imagine that you have to drive, servomotors, optoelectronic components, hundreds of expensive, high-tech components that are not able to do in the Russian Federation at the German-French level, all of a sudden, there is nobody to do it themselves. Be realistic, stop eating noodles, and the importance of the problem in Russia is not primarily tanks, not even a hundredth.

    The only tank in the world on which KAZ is serially installed is Merkava, but this will be exactly until the moment when the Russian T-14 tank and all equipment on the Armata platform begin to be mass-produced.

      And when will this happen? 5-10 years is not enough for the number of Armats to be at least equal to the number of T-90 (you can keep silent about T-72).

        and the amount of merkava already equaled?

    Well, the Germans a priori, will not catch up with anyone. Spectacular frames, MOVIES.
    a threatening projectile is intercepted at the very last moment. This reduces the spread area of ​​the damaging elements. Due to this, ADS is less dangerous for soldiers who may be near an armored vehicle at the time of its shelling.

    It seems like you had to say something, and they said. And what they said is not the point.

    Looking into the future, we can say that KAZ will be executed in a reusable version (possibly). So to say, automatic reloading - supplying a new container with explosives and a container with striking elements - then it will be full ....
