Deeply modernized tanks T-72B3 come into service with parts of the Southern Military District

45
The head of the press service of the Southern Military District, Vadim Astafiev, announced that the party of modernized tanks T-72B3 with high-power engines will go to the unit of the 49th combined arms army of the Southern Military District. The 49th Army, for reference, is deployed in the Krasnodar and Stavropol Territories.


RIA News cites Vadim Astafyev’s statement:
Distinctive features of the new combat vehicles in comparison with previous versions is a more powerful engine for 1130 horsepower, an improved set of weapons, aiming and control. For the driver has a gear shift, digital display and a rear-view television camera.


It is noted that the modernization has affected the protection of the case. On-board screens with “Relict” dynamic protection modules, additional lattice screens and dynamic protection modules in a soft case actually complement the effect of protection against multi-layer tank armor.

Operation of the upgraded versions of the T-72B3 tanks will reportedly begin with military personnel during the summer training period.

Earlier (at the end of December) 16 of deeply modernized T-72B3 tanks replenished the arsenal of a motorized rifle brigade stationed near Orenburg.

The tanks are equipped with a digital chassis control system, armed with an 125-mm cannon and two machine guns. A Sosna-U sight mounted on an armored vehicle with an automatic target tracking function and a thermal imager. The tank has a new generation of ballistic calculator, as well as a weather sensor.

    No matter how they were praised, but this "budget version" in the event of war will be destroyed very quickly! I consider the installation of dynamic protection blocks with such gaps a deliberate crime and sabotage!

      Calculate the likelihood of various types of enemy shells getting into battle from different angles of meeting, comparing them with data on damage to the tank, present them to the Ministry of Defense (get a doctor of military sciences) and the prosecutor's office (here you really get the rank of informer laughing ) and your goals will come close.

        Despite the fact that they began to save and instead of purchasing T90 or T14 we will upgrade the old man T72. It, of course, is correct in the current situation, but, somehow offensive, or something ...
        In principle, the latest modification of the T72 b3m pritenzy not so much. The only thing that confuses and revolts me in him is the very dead information field of the commander. At night he is generally a passenger. For the reconnaissance of targets and their defeat is carried out by the gunner through the thermal imaging channel. All this is based on open press materials.

            Order does not mean marriage))) We are going to order T14 ... The whole question is in quantity. And where they go. I heard that the very ordered "breakthroughs" will go to replace the 90s of early modifications. Which may well make a subsequent overseas voyage.

    This junk has long been needed for re-melting, or to throw blacks in Africa at reasonable prices. It has long been necessary to begin to equip the T-14 troops. T-72 is already 45 years old, tanks are rapidly becoming obsolete, for example, T-54 and T-26 have been separated for only 20 years, but these are completely different opportunities!

      Your opinion is divorced from reality. The modernized T-72 and T-90 compete with the main tanks of enemy countries. The cost of upgrading the old fleet is quite reasonable compared to the production of new T-14 tanks. Repair buildings are developed, a huge number of trained crews. The number of T-72s, T-90s and T-80s is enough to participate in a large-scale war, with which the NATO troops are driving us. What is a T-14? This concept is still about a lot of "raw", expensive, nor any repair base, nor any stock of spare parts in warehouses. Those measures that Russia is now taking on tanks are in line with normal military logic. By your own logic, we should also abandon the modernized reliable “Kalash” and switch to something conceptually new, because the “Kalash” has already exceeded half a century ...

    The battles in Syria showed that even the T 54-55 is quite capable of completing a combat mission. And the updated 72nd with the New engine and sights - well, a good car. Early on her re-melting laughing

    Dreaming. T-14, T-90. Hold on there (s).
    The tank is normal, thanks to the totalitarian past. DZ on it must be done on purpose, or return to the old form and methodology of the dodger just for this tower and the hull.

    luboko modernized T-72B3 tanks go into service of parts of the Southern Military District
    Enough to supply the "cheap" "semi-finished product" to the troops, it’s time to bring all the tanks to the level of "Breakthrough" during modernization, when we do this, then this will be a real transition to "unification"

    Dear tankers and experts. Please explain. I read the following sentence: "The external optical unit is not just covered with a lid, but also bolted with four bolts. In the field, this is a real threat to the entire crew of the T-72B3."
    What are you talking about? Thank.

      If it’s very rude: before you start using Sosna-U (one of the key advantages of the T-72B3), you must say “Wait a minute!” and unscrew the cap bolts. It's better,
      Of course, 15 minutes. This is especially "funny" given the automatic armored curtains already existing in the USSR.

          In order to avoid accidentally damaging expensive equipment during pokatuschi at the training grounds (without firing), as well as during downtime / maintenance / repair of nearby nodes. In my opinion, this is obvious. When training firing, and even before the outbreak of hostilities, will be removed in advance. The same automatic armored shutter can jam at the most inopportune moment - garbage, pebbles ... But here everything is simple and reliable. So panic is not appropriate, but jokes about a “minute” from ignorance of equipment.

            Hooray, finally someone who knows the materiel))
            Enlighten, please. Earlier, even during the Second World War, automatic curtains were used. And now, progress has come to the point where they are bolted.
            So, tell me: what about the latest or promising models of abrams, leopards or leclercs with this? Are competitors behind on this issue?
            And the second question. And why, after such an overwhelming technical breakthrough, we are again experiencing a decline in tank building - Armata does not have 4 bolts ...
            Do I need to urgently write somewhere to fix it? wassat

            and before the start of hostilities, they’ll take off in advance
            Fighting is now an unpredictable thing, you need an armored curtain, and if it gets stuck then it will be necessary to climb out and open it, and in this case it’s like going to the toilet in the morning right on schedule. It would be better if such plates with bolts patched the holes in the protection.

          A batch of T-90S is being delivered to Iraq. And with active protection, complete order, and armored curtains are present (and there are probably air conditioners).


          And in the Russian army it is "deeply modernized" ... The word "deeply" was especially amused. I look forward to the epithets "slightly" and "half a bump."

    They are modernized only because the legacy of the Union to modern shit is still not able to cut or sell. Although they saw and sell from the beginning of the 90s.

    Those. expensive equipment "during pokatushek at the training ground" is easy to damage, but during the march during the fighting is not possible? In my opinion, it is obvious that this is an idiotic solution, suitable only for “idle-conservation”. In the conditions of a DB this blind will be thrown out the fuck and correctly done. True and Pine will live normally until the first pebble.
