American armored vehicles can get a system of active protection of domestic production. The US Department of Defense has signed a contract with Lockheed Martin for the development of MAPS systems, Warspot reports, citing armyrecognition.com.


US Department of Defense has signed a contract for the development of domestic KAZ


Modular Active Protection Systems (MAPS) is a modular active protection system. Under this name in the United States developed a program of comprehensive protection for armored vehicles. The basic tests of the American “active armor” have already been carried out, and Lockheed Martin has received a new contract for the further development of the system.

According to the contract, the company must prepare fully functional prototype systems within a year and in the year 2019 hand over them to the army for complex tests. Lockheed Martin's MAPS systems are modular and consist of threat tracking systems, computer and software, as well as interceptors capable of destroying missiles and rocket-propelled grenades at a distance from the target.

Since the United States does not have its own defense system, last year the US Department of Defense approved the purchase of Israeli active protection systems Trophy and Iron Fist.

    Development of KAZ on the old platform ... at the same time, about the new tank mattresses so far the network is littered only with cartoony videos. And Abrash in the lineup of CEP-3 is only being cut.

        That's right ... only we ALREADY developed a new Armat platform, and the mattresses didn’t even have a horse there. They promise by the year 30 ..
        The U.S. Army's Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center (TARDEC), an armored center for research, development and modernization of armored combat vehicles of the U.S. Army, is developing concepts for future high-tech tank platforms.

        While we are talking about the first stages in the creation of new tanks - conceptual work and modeling. The first model “in the metal” is still far away, but the US ground forces are already formulating their views on the future machine.

        He’s not happy anymore ... I’ll say more, he began not to suit them even after Iraq ..
        The appearance of the new main battle tank will be preceded by the modernization of Abrams to the M1A2 SEP v4 level in the 2020s, Konstantin Makienko, deputy director of the Center for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies, recalled in an interview with Gazeta.Ru.

        According to the expert, this will be an Abrams variant with significantly expanded fire capabilities. It is assumed that the tank will be equipped with the latest generation of various sensors with a sharply increased range: a laser rangefinder, video cameras, meteorological sensors and laser receivers warning of the possible use of enemy weapons in the tank. The equipment of the machines will also be adapted for conducting network-centric combat operations, including with the transmission of data on the ammunition used.

        Even in the same Syria, Abramsov was burned a lot, which greatly dampened his reputation as the most advanced tank in the world.

          In the entire history of the operation of this tank, only one case of complete loss of crew was recorded by mattresses. It performs its functions pretty well now, and there is still a modernization resource. And in Syria, Abrashi were burned not because the tank was amno, but because the training of the crew left much to be desired. With a fool and a cast-iron falic symbol you can break. So that's not an indicator request

      But what’s the problem? There will still not be a lot of fittings for the next decade.
      And the kaz even on the M60 will raise the combat capabilities of the tank by an order of magnitude. And the mention of modularity is hardly just like that.

        By the way, so for information ... the world record (unofficial) for shooting a tank in movement on targets was broken ..
        So, at one of the foreign demonstrations, the gunner of our tank hit 54 targets in 7 seconds, which were located at a distance of one and a half to two and a half kilometers. At the same time, he shot on the move, at a speed of thirty-five kilometers per hour. Past achievements belonged to the German Leopard 2. Under the same conditions, he hit one less target. For Americans, this figure is much lower.

        I’ll add and Leopard’s speed was lower. hi

            Rather, this is the case. The time from detecting a target to a shot at it in motion, with all the calculations for the abrashi, is about 10 seconds and the same 72ke is about 12-14. The mattresses have a more automated process of making corrections. Although our crew is well trained in principle, they would not give in. so all these numbers are very relative.

And its engine is not for Kazakhstan. So let Abrams hang and modernize us for joy. As I understand it, you can’t put the autoloader there, therefore, it will also lose in the rate of fire. hi

In speed, it does not lose, with certain skills (a Negro is charging (maybe faster than with az.plus in that scrap from lunch uranium can be made more authentically with it, it can’t be rolled at 72 and 90 meters, az will not give. The ammunition storage for the mattresses with a separate module is made, well, if the loader suddenly closes, the commander may be responsible for it if you’re grunting with us, then you won’t especially reload your handles. everywhere your pros and cons. well, our tanks will also not always get to the battlefield on their own, either a car or a railway platform. Engineers can direct bridges, so it’s not a problem either. normal tank good it’s just that it’s not very customary to praise someone else’s. Usually we love to underestimate it.

          Alexander, but Abrams cannot recharge on the go. Agree that this is a strong flaw. AZ allows reducing the reserved space, and therefore the weight and dimensions of the tank, quantitatively the crew.
          The gas turbine engine on the T-80, after all the dust-proofing, and this system is much better than the American one, still starts to swallow dust and lose power. In the mountains, diesel is also preferable. T-80 was not placed in Central Asia. After Kuwait, they understood the problem, even before Iraq. I don’t know about the modernization of the engine, but I read about rubber pads (so that dust does not fly into the engine’s duct) - but this does not solve the whole problem. My message is that Abrams is outdated against the background of Almaty - against the background of those T-72s I showed its cons. Of course, the Russian Federation does not have a T-14, but it is obvious that in the near future it will be - the number (T-14) is assigned to the development and there is a contract for the first hundred.
          I agree that Abrams can be dragged along the plains of western Russia. But everything is becoming very complicated with these trawls, railway platforms and engineering troops - it must be assumed that you will not leave the infrastructure for a gain in time when you retreat. And Abrams will have to know the thaw and all the other "charms", and his tankers will sniff his weight.
          You can praise them for the Navy and the Air Force in a number of ways. An ax and other high-precision weapons also showed themselves. Opportunities in electronics.
          We are used to the fact that they have something new, and then the answer follows. But now the situation has changed diametrically ... BTT Armata and Kurganets. New missile launchers against the old Minutemans and Tridents. New missile weapons. New rifleman and equipment.
          They have new developments (they somehow showed the development of a tank with a low profile and a cannon of triangular section), but about 5-10 years, if they invest now.
          Another interesting point. In artillery and MLRS, the states have always lost countlessly. And without this, there is nothing to do in Russia. hi

            It’s even very normal for it to recharge on the go. The gas load of the Abrasha will be directly higher than that of 80 and 72 and 90. The throughput is determined by the specific pressure on the ground. The difference is not that great. The difference in height with our tanks is 40 cm. is it critical practically not by how much. according to some particular parameters, ours is better, according to some of them. because the tank has still not lost its relevance and the resource of modernization has not been exhausted, it is a fact. well, the mountainous part of the Chechen Republic showed about the praised passability of our tanks that our 72 can also fight only where there are dorgs. they were mainly used as armored bunkers. for the mountains and mud is not the best kind of equipment. This applies to any of the tanks. And the difference is to dig out 40 tons of scrap metal and 63 no. that it’s dubious pleasure. soldier

      It clearly shows how well Abrams is protected in front and
      what a weak side of his body.
      It was created as an anti-tank weapon with a maximum frontal
      defense, but absolutely not ready for war with partisans (side attacks from an ambush).
      Therefore, KAZ Trophy had to be installed on it.

          Yes, it is specifically outdated, Sergei. The rate of fire without AZ is poor, on the move it can only make one shot (then you need to stop to reload). The weight is very large - Russia can sleep peacefully - the Armada Abramsov is not threatening. Missiles for his gun are not visible. That is, two characteristics from the main purpose of the tank (rate of fire and range) are bad. Let them upgrade further. And why does the warrior so admire them, I don’t understand?

            Yes, because this is complete nonsense, that he needs to stop to recharge wassat normally it shoots on the go and reloads. the normal apparatus, although ancient as an ammo mammoth. has a range greater than 90 tons, especially at night. They have the same firing range during the day. Yes, and the weight will only affect the passability on structures like bridges , but this is not critical. But in terms of specific pressure on the soil, the difference between t 90 and abrash is not so great. T 14, it seems, was also designed with a feather. T he already got to 50 t.

          The sides of the Merkava-4 are easily held by RPG-7 and 50-by-50 - ATGMs of caliber 150 and higher.

    Tank. It is alleged that he has no equal on the battlefield. It is necessary to modify the Hook: to shoot not just with a rocket, but with a cloud of shrapnel when approaching the tank. A part will intercept KAZ, other elements will destroy KAZ, damage the barrel. and the main ammunition will finally destroy the tank ... laughing tongue wassat

      When there will be steel terminators instead of living people in the infantry. KAZ not only shoots down shells in flight, it buckshot everything living in the shot sector with buckshot. It’s dangerous for infantrymen to be near such a tank. Therefore, instead of the Arena, they began to put the Curtain on the T-90. And for the T-14 redesigned KAZ conceptually.
