Syrians continue to equip old tanks with thermal imagers

Syrian military experts continue to equip Tanks thermal imaging sights. Previously, such equipment was installed mainly on the T-72, now it is increasingly found on modifications of older machines, such as the T-55, writes Messenger of Mordovia.

Syrians continue to equip old tanks with thermal imagers

Thermal imagers are replacing infrared devices that react to various interferences and often fail. Moreover, their real range of application was only a few hundred meters.

Thermal imaging, however, does not react at all to bright flashes and “other illumination” like the flames of strong fires, the author notes. And he “sees” much further: for example, the Syrian Viper, according to information published on the Internet, is able to detect targets like “tank” at a distance of 4 km. More quality objects are fixed at a distance of one and a half to two kilometers.

These scopes were developed by specialists of the Syrian Research Center. True, they are assembled from components of foreign production.

On T-55 tanks, thermal sights are mounted above the barrels of 100-millimeter guns, on top of the laser range finders, or to the place where the infrared illuminator was previously located.

      No, not any. Extra losses are not needed. It is necessary to beat the most effective.

    However, it is too early to send the T-55 Veteran to retire. Still work hard.

    Just think, so the Syrians find money for these devices. They also find money for “birdhouses” against anti-tank systems. Maybe we should cooperate with them a little, for the common interest

    T-55 and especially T-62 were the best in recent regional conflicts. Ours need to draw conclusions and not to melt them, but to repair, install dynamic protection, LMS and sell for quite a lot of money. Or for some kind of preferences, such as oil and diamonds.

      They turned out to be the only ones massively represented (although the Syrians and T-72 have a lot), but not the best. They are by no means using a good life, and therefore the Syrians do not refuse the T-90 at all.

      As for modernization programs, they exist of varying degrees of radicalism. There is even a modification with the installation of a tower from the T-72B. Of course, they are all designed for foreign customers from poor countries.
