Vietnamese reporters: The reinforced armor of the Syrian T-62 does not save these tanks

90
As a result of the destruction of three tanks T-62, attacked in Syria in one battle, doubts arose about the defensive capabilities of both modernized and the latest Russian technology. This opinion was expressed by the Vietnamese edition of BaoDatViet.




Curse T-62M and T-90


In battles with rebels in Idlib and Latakia last week, Syrian government troops lost five tanks, and many other vehicles were damaged. Of the lost equipment, three units were identified as T-62M.

From the published pictures, you can easily notice that the attack on them came in the most vulnerable places - the projectile went down from above. Earlier, Lebanese Al-Masdar News experts said a similar “Achilles heel” is also characteristic of the Russian T-90 versions.

Anti-tank strike weapons back and top was always considered their curse

- writes the Vietnamese edition of BaoDatViet.

To overcome these fatal shortcomings, Russia had to modify the armor for the T-62 before they were delivered to Syria: a complex composite protection was placed or dynamic protection was placed around the machine body. This allowed to increase the combat stability of equipment.

As a result, the T-62 security level has increased significantly. But until the attack is carried out from behind or from above. And this weakness was discovered by a terrorist, for which Russian tanks had to pay a high price, although anti-tank weapons were not of a new type

- notes BaoDatViet.

According to Vietnamese authors, the militants most likely were on a hill nearby, from where they fired.

Vietnamese reporters: The reinforced armor of the Syrian T-62 does not save these tanks


Disease inherited by "Armata"


So the "death" for the T-62 was almost inevitable

- indicates the publication, noting that this "disease" is characteristic not only for T-62M, but even for "Almaty." According to him, during the tests of the T-14 this weakness cannot be overcome in any way, despite the powerful and highly effective dynamic protection. Where did the Vietnamese reporters get such data?

In the research institute of steel and alloys, meanwhile, they claim that the armor of "Almaty" is at a high level, allowing it to withstand all types of anti-tank shells in caliber 100-150 mm. However, BaoDatViet believes that in fact, you can talk about the safety of the machine when firing from a distance from 2 km.

So, Russia indirectly confirmed that “Almaty” is unlikely to have a chance to survive if you reduce the attack range to less than 2 km. If this is true, then there is no need to replenish the park with a new generation

- concludes BaoDatViet.

One gets the impression that this material gives an order from those who want to squeeze Russia on the market of Southeast Asia.

    Why discuss the T62 at all?
    Even more delusional is the fiction about "the entire line of Russian tanks."
    I support the version on the ordered nature of the article.

            Oh my God! Yes, you never know the dividends now. With a bottle of beer, they sit and issue expert statements. Moreover, such articles may have more than one bottom. For example, bring down the price of weapons purchased. You see how your weapon is written bad, but so be it, we will buy it if you drop the price every two or three.

                Russia with the sale of weapons has already flown and flew because of the price. The Vietnamese bought a license and a factory for the production of Jewish Kalash - ACE 31 and ACE 32. Ours offered for $ 250 million, Israel for $ 170 million. They also abandoned our Shells in favor of the again short-range Jewish air defense systems Spyder-SR. We bought only 3 air defense systems, but as they say the symptom is not good.

                  Funny you ...
                  You correctly noted about the Kalash - the tender was not for the supply of weapons. The tender was for the construction of the plant. The Vietnamese decided to be original. Can you recall when it was our military-industrial complex that traded factories?
                  In addition, the volume of production of that plant was such that we are not building it. But the Israelis are building for themselves.

                  With the SAM, it’s also somehow strange. The complexes described by you are painfully different.

                      For example, the fact that the Israeli one is several launchers assembled in a complex around a separate radar station that provides primary target designation. The shell is a "thing in itself" - a machine on which there is a radar station, a computer, and a weapon. Even if it integrates, it is only with our "large" air defense systems, S-400, for example, or with itself. On the one hand, this is good, any vehicle is combat-ready separately, on the other hand, a separate radar and computer are poorly upgraded and their parameters are easier to increase.
                      It depends on what you need.

                      Again, the Israeli complex fires aircraft missiles from GOS. Pacir's missiles are dumber. But cheaper. If you want to intercept single targets, then this is better, but if group, then worse.

          and the Vietnamese generals do not express negativity about the delivered T-90


          ... and also, when the USSR Vietnamese army was armed with T-54 and PT-76 (and many more with what kind of gadgets) - there wasn’t any doubt about the defensive abilities of the delivered equipment ... relaxed ... forgot or sold out "Vietnamese journalists"?

          The news is from Lattakia, where again, where 4 consecutive year stormed the heights of Zuweikat and the town of Kabana. Oh how much they fought there, and they fried with Solntsepek, and aviation ...

          But if we plan to take D-E-Shugur, then the capture of Al-Najay and Bdam (nickel of the mountain range km 10x10) takes the SAA directly to the last outpost in front of Idlib. From there, you can process the positions of spirits from above and capture the city quickly. This dime is the key.

          By the way, I was surprised to learn that al-Baghdadi was spanked not in a desert that was not controlled by anyone, but in ... Idlib. In a territory controlled by moderate green thugs. In the West, one must ask oneself “how is it that the leader of world evil hid among fighters with a bloody regime dying for Syrian democracy” will smell burnt plastic.

      Look for someone who benefits. And it is beneficial to the Chinese. America is not going to trade in "Abrams", even the production line was either mothballed or finally dismantled. Israel's Merkava is about the same. European, Japanese, and Korean models are expensive, and it is not their style to trade at a loss for the sake of influence, the USSR could afford it, and to some extent the RF, the USA, and the PRC can and do. Turkeys with their Arjun? Not even funny. So the only competitor of Russian armored vehicles, which is profitable to criticize them, is China.

      Fact is a fact, the last T-62 in the USSR was released back in 1975. And such a tank, even modernized, can not be called modern. Anti-tank weapons have since gone far ahead. And it is only natural that veterans are on fire.

    A strike from above and behind is dangerous for all tanks, not just Russian ones. What's the news? Abrams and Leopards also have such vulnerabilities, to close the tank in full on all sides? Then it will be rather a stationary bunker. No one says that Russian tanks are indestructible, they only talk about increasing their security. Compared with other tanks, you can only price - parameters and overall survivability. In general, the article is nonsense! The level of analytics is kindergarten!

    Well, on the basis of the use of the T-62 to talk about Armata ... I’ll say that the mattresses in WWII didn’t have tags at all - they were some kind of coffins, so Abrams was a guano. Although he is already laughing Husits ​​won Abrams with cardboard.
    In general, any tank burns, especially when there are many ATGMs. In Iraq, on the bridge. I remember two abrams in general were stopped by the PALS - one was immobilized, the second was drowned ...

      Is it a Sherman or a guano? Then D. Loza looks at you as ...
      abrams ksta is also far from guano. Now nobody builds guano tanks at all in massive series.

          Loza was a Soviet tanker, and it was not comme il faut for a Soviet tankman to praise an American tank. But between the lines it is clear that he really liked emcha, especially in comparison with matilda.

          IMHO emcha in combat qualities somewhere near t34 but at the same time much more comfortable and hemorrhoids with less maintenance

    In Iraq, at least two cases were recorded when militants destroyed the vaunted American Abrams tank using a DShK machine gun. The destruction of one of the tanks occurred by igniting the auxiliary power units of the tank, due to machine gun fire. The armor-piercing incendiary bullets of the machine gun easily penetrated the protection with additional tanks of the tank.

    Flammable fuel led to the ignition of the tank engine and detonation of the ammunition. There is also a known case that the “Abrams” was shot down with the help of the DShK, when its bullet hit exactly the left side of the tower from behind, it is there that the APU is located, which was disabled. The burning fuel-oil mixture from the APU rushed into the engine compartment and burned the tank.

        Already Yes. But still, nothing in the world is perfect. Despite the fact that abrams is 13 times more expensive than t-62, and dshk is many times cheaper than anti-tank systems.

    As a result of the destruction of just three T-62 tanks attacked in Syria in one battle, doubts arose about the defensive capabilities of both modernized and the latest Russian technology. This opinion was expressed by the Vietnamese edition of BaoDatViet.

    The Vietnamese "expert" is simply a captain of the obvious.
    Quote: "As a result, the level of protection of the T-62 has increased significantly. But until the attack is carried out from behind or from above. And this weakness was discovered by a terrorist, for which Russian tanks were forced to pay a high price, although the anti-tank weapon was not a new one. type ". According to this guru, only terrorists discovered the vulnerability of tanks in the upper and rear projections and only in the T-62 ..... Sorry, even in Armata. Brilliant.

    Regarding the T-14, in my opinion, without a crew tower, there is one solution to minimize personnel losses. There are no hatches on top; solid armor allows increasing the thickness of the turret roof armor.

    Interestingly, which tank is well protected from hitting from above? There everyone has the thinnest place - it is impossible to cover the tank over the entire surface with 20+ cm. Of armor - it is still a tank, not a bunker - it should still drive))) By the way, western tanks are even worse protected from hitting from above - they, firstly, in general, the tower is much larger, since there is a loader (except Leclerc) and BC (for all), and secondly, in our t-72, -80, -90, a significant part of the top of the tower is covered by a ccd, which is not at western completely.

    Representatives of the "Vietnamese Press", are you sick !? Recently, I often see in the news all sorts of getting on from "Vietnamese media". Explicit order. As an anti-tank operator in the first army specialty, I will say: not a single tank in the world is properly covered from above! That is why the Javelin system works this way. But! You still try to have time to shoot and hit a dynamically moving modern tank (I'm talking about howling about the T-14 and T-90 "Armata"). I do not mean the Syrian specifics of burying tanks in caponiers and standing still. Still, the tank is not designed to stand still as a bunker. In this particular case, the infantry must clearly monitor the heights and monitor the occurrence of an ATGM attack. And, if not detected, then suckers ... Any ATGM operator knows: he is actually a suicide bomber. The shot and torch of the starting ATGM instantly hits the target designation, and then: a short run "our hill, your hill" from a high-explosive fragmentation ... And what, some NATO tanks with a profile two times higher than ours are somehow protected behind or above? And on board? I am laughing out loud! And the last: T-62M ... They would have crowed about the T-55 ... No, well, this is obvious yellowness, with brown coplets ...

      At a javelin to capture a target for at least 35 seconds, you must continuously keep a mark on the target if the target hits an obstacle; And now the all-beautiful stewar should all this time stick around his waist from the trenches with a huge fool on his shoulder.
      Well, there are a lot of javelin failures and the armor penetration is small (compensated if the blow is from above) and the price of the shot is sky-high.

      it’s unlikely that ours will bother with kombie-bombers .. it’s easier to start the production of kamikaze drones like Kalashnikov’s Cuba — there the mass of the payload allows you to place at least a cumulative fragmentation from the S-5 with a penetration of 250 mm or from the RPG-7 in the form of the PG-7VL Luch, and if you try, then put the Summary in there if the topic is developed .. then all will be pressed

    From the published pictures, you can easily notice that the attack on them came in the most vulnerable places - the projectile went down from above. Earlier, Lebanese Al-Masdar News experts said a similar “Achilles heel” is also characteristic of the Russian T-90 versions.

    To be honest, I don't care much about how and what the "Abrams" or "Merkavas" or "Leopers" are holding.
    Considering that now they are massively producing rockets that hit tanks from above - each "vaunted" article about our vehicles constantly raises the question of protecting it from above. And it becomes sad. Many bosses in our country consider such protection as some kind of expensive toy - like a tribute to the new fashion, etc. Say, and so it will come down ... especially against the backward barmaley.
    Okay. And did the T-14 also design for war with the tribes? And even in our promising tank, the upper part is not completely covered.

    What other Vietnamese experts! You can hear the stench of local liberals behind West’s news, only to grease Amers for their reward, that they painted the disease of all tanks, even American, even European, as they were beaten and continue to be beaten. It has long been known as soon as they come up with something to protect tanks, they immediately develop how to crack it. And as a rule, the developers are the same. And often the equipment is hit with the same weapon that was invented to suppress new armor.

Yes, they did not go beyond the parades, Merkava? the meeting with the cornets took place to the full advantage of the latter ... who else? mythical south korean indian and turkish japanese? and they went beyond the hangar?
