China will supply upgraded tanks in Bangladesh with 300

38
China upgrades 300 obsolete tanks Type 59 for the Bangladesh army. The fact is that budgetary restrictions do not allow this state to acquire modern equipment for the ground forces. Therefore, it was decided to acquire the combat vehicles of the Chinese army that were in operation and withdrawn from service.


China will supply upgraded tanks in Bangladesh with 300


As reported on the Facebook page of Bangladesh on Facebook, the upgraded Type 59 will receive the designation Durjoy and will be in line with their modern tactical and technical characteristics of the modern Chinese tank Type 96.



As the main armament selected 125-mm smoothbore gun. Ammunition 28 shells, including armor-piercing-sabots, capable of piercing 550 mm armor at a distance of about 2 km.

The 7,62-mm machine gun is paired with a cannon (6000 ammunition ammunition). To combat airborne and ground targets, an 12,7-mm machine gun with ribbons on 600 shots will be mounted on the turret.

The tank will receive a modern computerized fire control system with a laser rangefinder. A thermal imager is installed for night fighting.

The main armor is enhanced by dynamic anti-cumulative protection. The radio station allows you to maintain communication in a radius of 30 km.

Engine power - 800 HP Maximum speed - 49 km / h. Power reserve - 450 km. Tank weight - 40 tons. Crew - 4 man transmits "WG-Force"

        I would be glad if we sold our old, but modernized tanks in Bangladesh, in the amount of 300 pieces, this is not only money, but also influence ... And the money is not only for the tanks themselves, but also for maintenance, spare parts, ammunition...

    So the Chinese are slowly getting rid of old tanks, of which they are armed with thousands! They can safely send them to Africa, fortunately, that the Chinese have huge plans on the black continent that they are realizing! What could be the best way to bribe the loyalty of local kings? Correctly-free military equipment and weapons!

    How old are these cars, created on the basis of the Soviet T-54, 50-60? Surely the guns of tanks have already managed to exhaust their resources, but it seems that this nuance is of little concern to anyone.

      The gun will be replaced by a type 96. Normal modernization. For Bangladesh and its tasks, the device will work out quite well.

              Here’s the thing: with this modernization, each tank is completely disassembled, defective, and then assembled only from those components, assemblies and parts that are recognized as suitable for further operation, and here I look so little remains of my own ... honestly, it’s a mystery for me how they combined a 125-mm gun with a T-54 turret, in the same place the loads during the shot are completely different than those of the native 100-mm gun, it seems to me that they cut the barrel ... to partially reduce the power and remove additional load from the front roller
              Here our Omsk factory somehow displayed on the T-55M6 exhibition ... a tower, a la "Black Eagle", with a 125-mm cannon and an inflated MZ, significantly strengthened by VLD, but also an additional nose roller ...

                Sergey, my respect! hi I understand that the Chinese choose the best for modernization, and not what turned up on their arm (following the example of Svidomosaurs). The result is actually a new car, but after all, what it is based on does wear out anyway. It is a pity that the article does not contain a word of an approximate ratio of old / new components - it would be easier to evaluate the possibilities.

                    By the way - I was shocked by this, I personally assumed that "breaking the wheel" of the tank is an exorbitant load or deblism, but it turned out - EASY belay negative

                        Can you give at least one more example of a fragment of a torsion (if it was) on the "comb"? How many tank "pokatushki" and "biathlon" didn’t look at; well, never such a thing happened. They stuck it in with a muzzle — it was, they even turned it over at a bend, but whatever they broke it off, no. Only the Chinese and only on their own - managed to break off.

            Tried already, on the T-55. The price tag is unhealthy. Compared to the new tank.
            It’s easier to put 500 of them 200 to cannibalism. Against the AK-47 is the thing.

              Well, this is how to bargain ... You can lower the price tag, and then shortage back, due to the service, to return. But for this it is necessary to conclude a very AGREEMENT

      in general, I wonder how from the old Type 59 (consider T-54) you can get a tank that meets the technical and technical characteristics of a modern Chinese tank Type 96 (as I understand the competitor T-72) and even for little money, given that "budget restrictions do not allow this state to acquire modern equipment for the ground forces "?
      Ukraine offered something similar - the modernization of the T-55 to the T-55М8А2 (also with the installation of an 125-mm gun) Peru. nothing about procurement. or the specifications did not satisfy the customer or the price

      Bangladesh arose only thanks to the military intervention of India against Pakistan, the eastern province of which it was. I think that the "anger" of the Hindus to the Banglans is somehow not handy. Although whoever understands them there, the East, in a word!

    Leaving the Hindustan Peninsula, Britain left a time bomb, which, sooner or later, was supposed to explode. The name of this mine is Pakistan.
    Initially, East Pakistan was assigned the role of a poor relative. And the gap between the welfare of West and East Pakistan has only widened over the years.
    The central authorities of Pakistan have done everything for the emergence of separatist forces in East Pakistan.
    The logical result of which was the proclamation in March 1971 of the independent state of Bangladesh.
    Pakistani military authorities sent punitive units to Bangladesh, which, as expected, staged a massacre.
    The exodus of refugees to the territory of India began. When the number of refugees exceeded one million, a humanitarian catastrophe arose, and the inevitability of a military clash between India and Pakistan became apparent.
    Already in November 1971, the first clashes took place between the regular units of India and Pakistan, and on December 3, 1971, a Pakistani air raid on the Indian Air Force bases turned the conflict into a large-scale war.
    And in this war, luck was with India.
    Already on December 16, Pakistani troops surrendered in Bangladesh, and on December 17, hostilities ceased in the West.
    With the help of India, Bangladesh managed to defend its independence from Pakistan, but the expected growth in wealth did not happen.
    And now Bangladesh remains one of the poorest countries in the world.

    And in my opinion, all sides were cut down by two tails. The Chinese have made money on old tanks a) on modernization, electronics, etc. b) repair kits that rely on modernized tanks but are unified with type 96, which are armed with about 2000 thousand. (1000 type 96 and 1200 in my opinion 96a) c) 125 mm cannon - implies shells, which, taking into account the number (see point b.) Of tanks, have made a whole bunch. Of course they can be purchased from us or Kazakhstan, but I'm afraid this is not provided for in the agreement. D). Political capital, now if you have to buy something, they will buy unified with this modification.
    Bangladesh received a). Reducing the cost of upgrading the tank fleet b) accounted for such upgrades with big words [quote] according to their tactical and technical characteristics they will become modern Chinese tank Type 96 [/ quote] we delete the words “Chinese” and “type 96” from the press article - we get a loud headline for voters (are they elected there?), the population, and the authorities.
    Well done Chinese, to say the least. Again managed to earn money out of the blue. And everyone is happy.

    The main adversary today is Bangladesh neighboring Myanmar. And there are Chinese tanks in service - 100 T-69-2 and 50 T-72. Both those and other glorious tankers, but 300 tanks against 150 weather will do in case of conflict. And the PRC benefits. You need to learn from them.

    Have you read the "tank" literature on the Internet? And try to shoot a series of ten, at least shells with closed hatches ... This is called "they didn’t smell gunpowder." And 550mm is not a little. And the enemy’s tank has tracks, gun embrasures, sights (optics) on a tower the total size of the screen of your computer ... And even if the armor is not “broken through”, the effect on the crew is stunning. This is me, as a former tanker practitioner I know. And in a horseradish tank under fire, anyway is better than in a cotton field laughing
