India develops anti-mine devices for T-72 and T-90 tanks


A local mine flail will be developed for the Indian armed forces. They plan to equip the main combat Tanks T-72 and T-90 Bhishma.


This was reported by the State Bureau of Press Information (PIB).

The development tests of the trawl units developed by the Indian Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) have been approved by the Defense Procurement Council. According to the PIB, this will provide the Indian armed forces with their own mine clearance facilities.

Neither the technical specifications of the new anti-mine system, which will be installed on the tanks, nor the timing of its creation have been released yet. But prototypes have already been demonstrated during the DefExpo India 2018 exhibition. The devices were installed on several tanks, including the domestic Arjun MK.II.

The Hobart Amusements anti-mine device used today on Indian tanks has long been outdated.

It was first used during the landing of the Allied forces in Normandy in 1944. Tanks equipped with new anti-mine devices then played a big role in overcoming German defense. They were named after British Major General Percy Hobart.

      Laughter laughs but Indians are far from fools. In vain you laugh and it is very good that they are conditionally on our side, like China. I would have seen in a coffin with Indians and Chinese on different sides of the sight to stand.

        Fools, of course not. But with pomp and pathos "reinvent the wheel", this must be able to. Although, the Indians with their mentality, sometimes give reason to think about whether they have everything at home. From our point of view, of course.

    I don’t know how anyone, but from one type of Indian tank trawls I already become “scared” ...

      Good day, Sergey. Looking at the photo, although not a tanker, you are amazed. Are they specifically doing kirdyk to the crew. What are they going to dig mines, when detonated at any point of the trawl, the tower and the front end take the blow - all the attachments that are outside the tower are to figs. I don’t understand their calculations. Our trawls, on the contrary, the first defense activates the mine where it is and the guards protecting the surface of the tank, well, the second, heavy pressing.

        Believe me, this is normal practice, our mine trawls also have such sections, the mine is simply discarded from the tank’s tracks

        This is you about ice rinks, but they also have “knives”, here is KMT-7 with knife sections, they are closed here and are in the stowed position

        But the "rutting mine trawls" they are purely "knife"

      Well, they are now switching to "self-sufficiency", such as "very smart"

        Sergey, run into a mine and step on a rake, these are generally different results in the end! Do your own thing and do your thing in a quality manner, and as it should, and if you can’t do it as it should, buy someone else’s, but nevertheless, even on the basis of someone else’s, do your own!

          All right, on the basis of foreign weapons, long-term defense of the state cannot be built. Alien, it will remain so alien

        Yeah, smart as a wuther. And terribly "independent". Everyone is trying to show "nevermind" the RF. And when the roasted cock in the seat bites, to whom will they run? To the mattresses? I doubt it very much.

      Well, all the same, the trawl is not so high-tech, it is certainly simpler than a 4th generation fighter, into which the Indians may well.

    They just need, they want to have, do their own.
    Everything, nothing more is visible.

    I hope the tests of the T-14 will finally be completed soon. And then they were already waiting.
    The latest modification of the T-14 battle tank, which was created on the basis of the Armata platform, successfully completed preliminary tests. This is confirmed by the leadership of the Russian Defense Ministry, reports comandir.com. Preliminary tests also affected the BMP T-15, which were created on the basis of "Almaty".


    The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation reports that according to the results of preliminary tests, combat formations are awaiting the arrival of a batch of five vehicles based on the "Almaty". Such combat vehicles will continue to participate in state trials, informs comandir.com. They will be handed over to the Russian Ministry of Defense in the first half of this year.


    The Armata tank reaches a speed of 90 km / h. At the same time, the cruising range of the combat vehicle on the highway reaches 500 km. The total weight of the tank exceeds 55 tons, reports comandir.com.
