Kharkov "Malyshev Plant" intends to receive a possible contract for the modernization of Serbian tanks T-55. Preliminary informal negotiations on this topic took place during the exhibition "Weapon and security-2019 ", passing from Kiev. The Ukrainian portal mil.in.ua reports with reference to the Serbian publication V92.


Ukraine intends to modernize Serbian T-55 tanks

According to the Serbian publication, during the exhibition in Kiev, an informal meeting was held between representatives of the Kharkov "Malyshev Plant" and the Serbian military analyst Vlad Radulovic, during which they discussed the possible modernization of Serbian T-55 tanks, which should be restored and modernized to form a strategic reserve Armed Forces of Serbia.

According to the publication, the Ukrainian company expressed great interest in this proposal and assured that it has every opportunity to carry out major repairs and modernization of tanks with the installation of modern fire control systems, a new engine and a gun. It is added that "KhZiM" proposed several options for modernization, including the one developed by KhKBM named after Morozov project T-55AGM.

Our design office has the ability to overhaul and deeply upgrade the T-55 tank. In addition to maintaining the current 100 mm caliber, there is the possibility of installing a new 125-mm smoothbore gun, and, depending on the type of modernization, engine power can be increased

- said the Deputy General Director of the State Enterprise “Plant named after Malysheva ”Dmitry Ivantsin.

It should be noted that there has not yet been an official appeal from Serbia to modernize the T-55 tanks. Most likely, the proposal of Ukraine will be considered among the proposals of other countries, after Belgrade makes the final decision on the modernization of tanks.

      The planes killed the Croats like that, there’s nothing to pay the forfeit, they decided to disable their opponents-Serbs from the tanks as a moral compensation.

        Despite the fact that Ukroboronprom expressed criticism towards the Bulgarian Ministry of Defense, the country's authorities decided to transfer the MiG-29 fighters for repair to the Russian side. This is due not only to the acceptable cost and timing, but also to the quality of the work performed. It should be clarified that the main argument from the Ministry of Defense of Bulgaria to the authorities was the scandal between Ukraine and Croatia, when it turned out that Ukroboronprom specialists, repairing MiG-21 combat aircraft, brought them into complete disrepair, thereby undermining the country's defense
        .
        But even more fun was the story associated with the MiG-21, purchased from Ukraine. Four out of five aircraft crashed almost immediately. When the Croatian investigators began to find out what was wrong with the fighters, it turned out that the Ukrainian company acquired them in Bulgaria. The decommissioned MiG-21s, which have spent literally the last five years in a landfill, were bought by Ukrainians “for spare parts”. At the same time, the Bulgarians also distinguished themselves - in their report sent to NATO, the sold MiGs were listed as “recycled”

        According to the latest information, under the contract, Croatia paid Ukraine $ 22 million.

        Bulgarians are smarter, or trickier ??? laughing

        And also find out from the APU how tanks were modernized for their own. It's not bad to talk with Thais about the supply of new cars. In general, only a madman or one bought on the vine can sign a contract with the outskirts for the modernization of something.

      One hundred poods applied, but wanted, as usual, "for free." Most likely, they received a polite refusal indicating the cost of such work. We sat and scratched their "turnips" and decided that the other Slavic brothers would be cheaper. And all business.

      Unfortunately, we have only one worthy modernization so far - the T-90M, where both the ZPU and all are covered with dynamic protection, and the SDAs and communications are no worse. And if you look at their modernized T-64 T-80, etc., you can see that they do not save on the protection of tanks, i.e. the crew, the Serbs chose them.

            about how) there is such a term, combat readiness. which includes everything. so yours did not lead to the proper level it is the level of it. I saw a bunch of mess, but I can’t even imagine this. there were cars in my park and I always knew that there was any alarm and they would all come out and complete the tasks. and they won’t get up on the march. and then the competition is international. with regard to their protection, this is a complex topic and it is not solved by DZ alone. you can hang the car with anything at least, but as soon as the projectile hasn’t gone or the cannon is jumping in all directions of the world, you simply ride a tractor. to repair or upgrade to carry out such specialists can be given only after a week of hard drinking something and that is not a fact.

        The practice of recent wars in Libya, Syria and Yemen has shown that it makes no sense to build an expensive tank. It is optimal to have a lot of cheap tanks with cheap crews. Upon their retirement, you can buy a bunch of cheap tanks and hire new cheap crews.

            Papuans with a 2-4 month course of study. At $ 10000 per cadet per month, we get about $ 120000 for accelerated crew training. Enough to push the shell into the breech and point the gun at the optical sight.

      People!!! Do not fall for such messages. Some analyst met with a representative of the plant and asked about the possibility of modernization. So what? This is about the same as if Viktor Murakhovsky or Yakov Kedmi went on a trip to a defense enterprise and showed their curiosity.
      Ukrainian company has expressed great interest in this proposal
      Well, here and do not go to the grandmother. Who would doubt that. But all this modernization is a chicken in the nest. Especially since
      there has not yet been an official appeal from Serbia to modernize the T-55 tanks
      and it’s unlikely to be. We give them MIG-29, T-72 and BRDM-2, and will they give us figwam? Very unlikely (and if suddenly they also plan to free Kosovo feel).

    T-55 tanks were removed / decommissioned from service as "unnecessary" equipment back in 2005-2006, more than 700 units.

    The Ukrainian military-industrial complex does not have a reputation for putting it mildly. Many are thrown, deceived, and the quality is lame, as shown by the same contracts on the MiG-21 of Croatia or armored personnel carriers with cracks in the armor of Iraq. Too cunning and unscrupulous to deal with them.

    The Malyshev plant desperately needs at least some contracts to load the available capacities. Otherwise, qualified specialists will finally run away. The management of the plant can be understood: there are no orders from the Ministry of Defense, nor is there state funding. Therefore, the situation, as in the well-known saying: the salvation of drowning people is the business of the drowning people themselves.

    If Serbia orders Ukraine’s modernization of tanks, it will be just another blow to the back of Russia. We supply them with armored vehicles for free, support them in the political arena, are adamant about the territory of Kosovo and Metohija.

    Are they really so easy to betray us ?!

    Serbia’s order for tank modernization, it would be all the same if Russia began to sell and partly give military equipment to the Albanians from the territory of Kosovo and Metohija.

    Almost nothing remained of the Kharkov plant, everything was sold out in a quarter of a century. With what capacities are they going to modernize something? In KhZiM except for the destroyed buildings of cracked concrete and grass there is nothing. These are the workers of this plant themselves tell. What nafig 125mm barrels? It's like a "modernization" of the Croatian MiG-21, out of 12 aircraft only 2 fly, the rest to the Balkans by train

    Serbs are a wise people. I don’t think they will need a batch of defective tanks in their strategic reserve. In which there are not enough components, "steel fasteners" will break like paper, and the vaunted "electronics" will refuse to work .. Examples have already taken place. Putin, in principle, correctly said that Ukraine has lost its compensation in high-tech industries.
