Recent "Bastions-T" go to Thailand in spite of the "military aggression of Russia"

24
Ukroboronprom finally completed the delivery of widely publicized Ukraine tanks "Hold-T" of the armed forces of Thailand.


The contract for the supply of the main battle tanks Oplot-T to Thailand has been successfully completed. The last batch of combat vehicles successfully passed the tests in the presence of customers and in the near future will be sent to the country of deployment
- the press service of "Ukroboronprom".

Recent "Bastions-T" go to Thailand in spite of the "military aggression of Russia"


Moreover, according to Pavel Bukin, General Director of the Ukroboronprom Group of Companies, the contract was executed "despite unfair competition and military aggression of Russia."

We are grateful to our strategic partners from Thailand for a wise understanding of the problems faced by Ukraine, and for the belief that Ukraine is able to overcome the artificial barriers erected in the way of our relations
- says Bukin.

After the completion of the contract with Thailand, Ukroboronprom is going to produce tanks for the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Bukin said that the work on the creation of new tanks "Oplot" is now coordinated with the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine. These works provide for significant modernization of T-64, which are operated in the Ukrainian army, for unification with the “Stronghold”.

We remind you that according to the contract for the supply of tanks between Ukraine and Thailand, concluded in the 2011 year, it was planned to supply 54 tanks "Oplot" to Thailand during the period 2011 – 2014. However, by the beginning of the summer 2017, only 35 units could be produced.

      In place of the Thais, I got the equipment, but I was in no hurry to pay the bills - a weighty argument was the disruption of supplies on time and let them sue, and there you can see the jambs will pop up the tanks (it’s hard to restore the bu and steam it like a novice).

        Fuel and lubricants would still be exchanged for the Thais in these Bastions ...

          So far, the Thais only complain about pixel paint and screens, the rest suits them. Otherwise, the buyer would refuse to pay for what is impossible to use and terminate the contract.

            =========
            How many contracts with Ukroboronprom were broken - it’s already lost count ..... As for the Oplotov (they are also somewhat modified T-80UD), the fact is that the Thais suffered 3 (three !!!!!) years disruption of delivery dates, says that there someone oh-h-h-horsh "smeared"!!!!
            Otherwise, they would not tolerate !!!
            .. Well, and about deliveries to the Armed Forces - so it was “gutted” last year that “it’s better to upgrade 10 T-64s (though we know HOW they will be“ modernized ”) than to buy (for the same money) 1 "Hold" ........
            Comments, in my opinion, are superfluous ........

              And if you didn’t “grease” it, but simply the normal price for normal equipment? Mainstay worthy.

                Given the penalty for failure to meet the deadlines, the Thais waited for the last tanks for free. And it looks like they were waiting in the form of donors for rem. sets.
                Now it’s artisanal (and they know how to do it) they’ll take 50 tanks into 20, and the rest will be sent to landfill targets or scrap metal (which is what it is).

                Any contract has penalties for missing the deadline and here either the Ukrainians supplied the latest tanks for free or corruption. The fact that the Thais transferred half of the amount immediately seeing what condition the plant is in, speaks volumes.
                The tank is undoubtedly very good, but it has nothing to do with the contract.

            Half of the amount paid immediately and apparently without corruption schemes could not have done it here; otherwise, it is not clear how long it is possible to endure failure to meet the deadlines for the contract.

      What the hell is an "understanding of problems"? The Thais simply realized that they would not be returned the money, so they waited patiently for the deliveries of the Oplot. But you could not wait ...

      What can I say, maybe ten times the Thai contract was canceled, but not fate.
      All the same, the stronghold became a serial tank.

      Thais paid money, and waited, albeit with a delay. Now another question, does Ukraine itself have money to buy its own tanks? Tanks are not produced free of charge, even for themselves.
      APU there is no chance they will not last so long!
      Come on, they will last as long as the overseas owner wishes.

    "Contrary to unfair competition and military aggression of Russia" it remains to wait for the epic of the description of a breakthrough .. a transport vessel with tanks on board, how they dodged torpedoes from Russian submarines and cruise missiles from aircraft of an aircraft carrier, how they stood in the way of Russian saboteurs armed with files to withdraw tanks out of order on the way to Thailand.

    It’s a pity, we nevertheless completed the contract, now we hope that during operation the Ukrainian tanks will not fail and will show themselves in all their glory ... So that from now on no one else has a desire to buy something from Ukraine from the military-industrial complex .. .

    “However, by the beginning of the summer of 2017, only 35 were able to be produced.” This phrase confuses, or rather the word - produce. How was the tank produced?
