City tank from "Uralvagonzavod"

49
The Syrian conflict has once again demonstrated that the troops need special modifications of armored vehicles for fighting in populated areas. Such a machine has existed for several years in Russia - it was created in Nizhny Tagil, writes Messenger of Mordovia.


City tank from "Uralvagonzavod"


"The main external difference of the modernized tank T-72 with an urban set of protective equipment is the presence of a powerful bulldozer blade, which is designated TBS-86. With the help of this device, “seventy-two” is capable of destroying barricades and various blockages, ”says the material of Lev Romanov.

Also striking armored cabin mounted on the tower. It will save the life of the commander of the machine during the application of large-caliber machine gun.



“The experts, however, still have not come to a single conclusion that it is better: such a cabin or remote-controlled installations. The fact is that this kit can be installed on existing tanks without significant rework, while remote control units will require more serious costs for upgrading, ”explains the author.



It is necessary to mention the new modular dynamic protection installed in the front of the tower and the hull, as well as on the sides of the "urban" tank. The back is covered with special lattice screens. Also there is equipment that suppresses the work of radio-controlled land mines.

The tank is equipped with an 1000 horsepower engine, the maximum combat vehicle speed is 60 km / h, and the weight is 50 tons.



“Military experts spoke highly of the" city "tank from UVZ, rightfully considering this development one of the best in the world. It was expected that it, like the BMPT, would be tested in Syria, but so far we see this combat vehicle only at training grounds and armory exhibitions, ”the author concludes.

    Some kind of archaism, a remote control module is needed, but not a fence, which also does not cover from above, in the city there are high houses
    The back is covered with special lattice screens.

    but this is the thing for the city, though the question is how much does it weigh?
    In general, for the city, the most important thing is to cover additional. to protect the sides, the back and top, seriously, even to the detriment of mobility, and this is not, and tankers in the city have to sandbag the tank.

      Here is another "fence" - from a country that does not have problems with the SAMP.

      Only here the glass blocks are larger and there is a shield on the machine gun.

        such machine gun options do not really protect against an enemy armed specifically for urban conditions, when the armament is equipped with an SV-1367 or a screw cutter, or at least a colt with a collimator, and if there is an ags flame, then it's just tin.
        Yes, even duck shot from an ordinary hunting rifle is quite capable of incapacitating the shooter.
        In other matters, I saw on the Abrams turrets much more quality

      How many experts are here! And to cut the gun, and add fences, and file the springs .... well, then you all do not go in formation ?!
      1. This is not a tank, but "tuning" for old tanks. So the "constructive" did not change: suspension, engine are the same and ext. weight of 4-5 tons, judging by the description - the limit. It was made mainly for sale in third countries as a modernization kit of old versions of the T-72.
      2. "they put such a lattice so stubbornly, it has already been proven a hundred times in practice that there is almost no sense in them" What makes sense and what is absent is probably more visible to experts. In Syria, which has been at war for so many years, the grilles are put on everything, the United States uses lattices on the Abrams, which means there is some sense. It is clear that DZ is better, but the mass and price are greater.
      3. “The most important thing is to cover additional side protection, the back and the upper part” The task of the body kit is to save the crew’s life, therefore they covered the main part of the hull for the most part. To build up all the reservation within the available mass would not work or work, but not much.
      4. "A remote control module is needed, not a fence", right, and it is on the T-90m, and even for the T-72 with PCMT it is available as an option. But it is more expensive and more difficult to install, and also reduces the number of hatches for evacuation (when installed on serial T-72!). Then the customer selects. Even for the same Abrams put extra. fences instead of the remote control module, as high-quality remote control module is much more expensive, and the "anti-aircraft machine gun" weapon is very auxiliary.
      5. About "to the detriment of mobility" is generally cool. Still, a standing tank will be burned or captured, if not booked. Mobility on the battlefield is important. Plus the engine’s capabilities are suspensions .... A broken tank is like a wrecked one, only an enemy of an ATGM or an RPG has saved.

        In theory, a modern tank should have a guaranteed reaction rate. In principle, the concept of transparent armor and the combination of an optical and thermal imaging channel should be implemented. And so bullets get into the tank much more often than anti-tank ammunition.

          the question is not in the reaction, but in the fact that the review is not the same as in a living person; in addition to the eyes, a person has other organs. For example, he will hear a window breaking. The speed of the analysis of the situation is therefore different.

    that's who smacks this grunting nonsense ????
    modification for the city is good, but is everything good in the modification itself?
    as for the turret, I’m sure that it’s better not remote (the person controls the situation better), but a more thoughtful design is needed! What is now, this is a primitive and not a successful design, not better than a remote control. The price here should not play at all. Need quality.
    Active protection. What for a tank in a city with great mobility? I believe that there are unused reserves to enhance protection, including screens. It may be worthwhile to provide an additional firing point for passengers, like on an old M5 light tank or Sherman. In general, it is better to adapt the tank to support the infantry squad. I am not an expert, but I think that the adaptation of the tank is far from being done as it should. There are tremendous opportunities for improvement.

      Continuing the theme - the Israelis are now doing a lot of high-quality developments to strengthen tanks in urban environments. Let the “specialists” at least look at what has already been introduced into the troops.
      Especially interesting are the bells and whistles on their new heavy merkava-based transporter.
      from high-performance machine-gun points with response functions to the approach of subsonic targets, ballistic countermeasure complexes (anti-sniper, mortar response, blinding systems, noise, etc.) to a well-thought-out personnel protection system.

      Well, if we are already talking about specialization, it’s worth shortening the length of the gun barrel - the range in the city does not play such a value, but deploying a tower in cramped street conditions is a problem. Put, for example, a 37 mm automatic gun paired with the main gun. etc.

    The best armored combat vehicle in the city is the Shilka ZU 23x4, but it was magically removed from the armament of the ground forces in the period from 1994-2000. And it was used so well both in the mountains and in mountain cities. The lifting angle of 4 trunks is 90 gr, frantic firing rate, bulletproof armor. And now they advertise a miracle - a carapace that does not shoot on the go and is clumsy either in the mountains or in the city.
