    Modernization of the equipment in service is the right decision, the T-72 fleet is the largest in the army. The characteristics and combat capabilities of the tank have increased, the cost of a reinforced tank is cheaper than making a new one. Even the USA has not been producing new "Abrams" since the 90s, but only modernizing the old ones.

        The right decision, approve! Heartily endorsed! In the morning, the boys had fun good
        We don’t think that the tower is closed by this Relic because the dofig of unbroken new zones was formed in connection with this sophistication, and they saved on cameras - just as it was blind-blind in the near dead zones, it remained because it would be very expensive and it would be extremely difficult to render 360-degree camera views.

      Just think, 46 years ago, the T-72 was put into service and still has not exhausted its technological reserve! It is worth paying tribute to the design team that created this tank !!! hi

        Apparently another 100 years will not be exhausted. As in their time they drew and didn’t get it from the inexhaustible "legendary three-inch model". Which, back in the 30s, it was time to be scrapped.

          The Germans in the thirties for some reason did not throw out their Mauser rifle. It was she who was the main infantry unit in service with the Wehrmacht. Now the question for you is: why is Mosinka worse than Mauser?

            Did not make it. From 1933 to 1939, only 6 years passed. There were more important tasks.

            Mosinka? What is "Mosinka"? Pug (which is with the elephant), I know. Mosinka, no.

          Well, the current is understandable, the only power that could use tank columns as a necessary offensive weapon was the USSR, in fact, it developed advanced solutions in this industry ... The USA always regarded tanks as auxiliary weapons, the main bet there was always on aviation , in fact, the trends of NATO countries have always followed the United States.
          The only ones who are now actively using tanks as offensive weapons to Israel, he sets the trends in tank building

        Because I didn’t have to fight with any serious enemy. So, modern anti-tank weapons have already gone far ahead. It is difficult to understand how this is how to fight against the Javelins, Spikes and similar complexes.

      Oh well, because I was worried that the plan of 150 units of T-72B3 for 2018 would not have time to be done.

    Not bad, but! Where are the Almaty? Why was it necessary to spend money on development, so that later they would be released in milliose copies? Or Su-57. The plane is excellent, no questions. But 2 pieces a year, and even FIG knows when these deliveries really begin? This is ridiculous. Go fight with your 2 pieces

    Russia needs a tank fist (tanks have radiation protection) .. They can explode in the last attack.
    Our tanks are remembered by everyone in the west .. And sly tank crews! soldier
