India received an extension of the license for the production of Russian T-90 tanks


Last year, Russia entered into an agreement with India to extend the production license. tanks family T-90. Such a message was made by Deputy Director of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation of the Russian Federation Vladimir Drozhzhov at the International Arms Exhibition in the Indian city of Lucknow.


Thus, he confirmed the information shared on Tuesday with RIA reporters News In an interview, the head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia Denis Manturov.

He informed them of the following:

In 2019, a contract was signed with the Indian side to extend the program for licensed production of T-90S tanks until 2028, and the Defense Procurement Council approved the production of 464 tanks of this model.

Manturov also said that the Indians were offered to supply or organize joint production of other equipment. In particular, it was about BTR-82A, BMP-3 and self-propelled anti-tank guns "Octopus-SDM1".

The Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation of the Russian Federation mentioned its intention to extend the license agreement with India in April last year. It is associated with the decision of New Delhi to purchase tanks from Russia in excess of the amount that Indians produce under license. Moscow has repeatedly met all of India’s proposals for the purchase or joint production of tanks.

        This article is about the model T-90MS
        T-90MS - an updated export version of the T-90 tank, first presented at the RAE-2011 exhibition. The combat vehicle uses the same types of ammunition that were used on the T-90. Additionally, a fragmentation-type projectile with remote detonation is included in the ammunition, which provides a more effective fight against enemy manpower. Also, the T-90MS received a more powerful engine, a new air conditioner, enhanced armoring and a machine gun on the tower.

      The T-72B3M tank is a really good tank with an excellent price / quality ratio.
      Its modernization in relatively large quantities is indeed a great reinforcement of armored weapons.

        Purchasing T-90 instead of the long-suffering Almaty?

        The failure with the Armata tank was acknowledged by Russian Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov, who is responsible for the country's defense industry. According to him, it makes no sense to "fill up the army with expensive Armats, each of which costs $ 4 million." The Russian military today has a lot of T-72 and its updated version of the T-90.
        Something like that...............

            Thank you for the ships of the first rank, which remained the only opportunity for us today to demonstrate the naval flag in the ocean ...
            Thank you for all the equipment that now flies, now even the Be-12 was sent for modernization (it was produced from 1959 to 1979) ... After 30 years, we will mark the centenary of this aircraft in the ranks of our celestial falcons.

                Don’t tell me about tanks! We will not have a nuclear war in the near future, but there will be local (semi-official in the presence of the regular army) conflicts such as New Russia, Syria, Libya, etc. This is where exactly modern tanks are needed, with decent active and passive protection, sighting systems, etc.
                It's not about the number of tanks, but about their equipment! All of our Soviet armored vehicles in large numbers were inferior to a smaller number of modern counterparts in the enemy. Any war in the Middle East will be a good example to you. Arab-Israeli wars, Desert Storm, etc.

                  for Syria and Libya, the T72 is enough, the older tanks are fighting there, that's exactly what they are modernizing with new sights, there is no difference between the T-64 and T-90 or Abrams in the city, if they don’t fight correctly, they’ll burn everything

                  if in these conflicts those who used our machines at least understood that the correct use of forces didn’t stupidly get into tanks and go, everything would go differently. that the tank is not a pillbox. that the ability to use the strengths and weaknesses of their technology is an art. that tanks should be used in conjunction with all forces. that the equipment must be modernized and not produced obsolete like in Iraq just because 10 years ago in the last war those old 72 tore the cartridges as they wanted. All wars in the war were won not just by new and technologically advanced models, but by total superiority in everything. If you look at the data, then the defeat of the tanks in at least 70 percent of the cases did not come from enemy tanks. but I think a lot more. the tanks didn’t decide whether they were developed or not, but the interaction decided. the very word that BV apparently does not understand at all. give them anything to lose anyway.

          you when you give out your thoughts for strangers even more modestly or what you behave) who admitted what?) the mass production of tanks means the transition to this machine as the main one. that T 14 will not receive for a long time. it was clear to all even the strangest people. no one even understands its role in principle on the battlefield and how to use this machine in principle. start to understand that for the troops this is a conceptually new machine in everything. its first years after being adopted, they will put a maximum of one regiment on the baht if not in the division stupidly for familiarization. And combat readiness is needed now, which means a massive purchase of already familiar vehicles. understand the meaning of the word to fall asleep and you’ll become easier to perceive the information.

        But during the design period, no one suspected that there were restrictions on soils and infrastructure in the country. smile

        Reminds the story of the creation of the Tiger tank Henschel.
        Given: there is a Tiger tank with an average weight of 55/57 tons. He should have been sent somewhere to fight, the Führer warmly asks. But.

        - The designers were so carried away that they did not at all take into account the restrictions imposed by the transport infrastructure.
        - According to the release of the tank in the Third Reich in 1942, there was not a single railway platform capable of holding a mass of more than 50 tons.
        - The Henschel firm producing Tigers was initially the largest producer of railway equipment. But the civilian and military departments from the very beginning did not even think about cooperation on this topic.
        - When the first “Tigers” were riveted in Kassel, SUDDENLY it turned out that there was nothing to carry them.
        - Instead of releasing tanks, Henschel hastily begins to craft six-axis SSyms platforms developed on the knee in three days.
        - There are platforms, but now they forgot about the railway gauge, and the Tiger doesn’t fit into it.
        - If the "Tiger" does not fit, there are problems with the alignment of the platform, if the loading is unsuccessful, the center of gravity shifts, increasing the likelihood of the platform toppling over on curvatures of a railway with a small radius.
        - The railway gauge can only be changed by re-gauging the track, expanding the tunnels, turning radius and, as a result, the predictable bankruptcy of Germany three days later.
        - All this is done by ONE firm - Henschel-Werke. Same le-zno-do-ro-zh-naya firm. And he does it simultaneously, in the summer of 1942.

    Yes, I’m kind of in the know, I’m talking about a UVZ branch in India, on the principle of car factories, where, say, the Bavarians have a plant like in Kaliningrad, and they produce assembly products for the Russian market on the territory of the Russian Federation, I had something similar for the Indian market, well there some critical technologies may not be worth making there, but some kind of joint venture that would have access to the Indian pie, and let them think up techniques and produce them there, and grandmas are in the general trough.

        unfortunately, this is exactly what is being done, the experience of the USSR and then of China proves it, first we stupidly copy and we get kaku, and of course we continue to copy bringing changes to our grief-product, which would allow the counterfeit to approach the indicators of the copied sample while developing our specialists by reverse engineering.
        My thesis is that capturing the market is the defense of the market :) but what the heck, the main thing to remember about the risks and consequences, no matter how Nixon and China.

            That is, China, over the past 30 years, from a country capable of producing only if bamboo sticks, has not become a country whose shipyards produce ships like pies, their tanks, their aircraft carriers and even 5 generation fighters. All this, by and large, is either copied, or is based on knowledge obtained through "mindless" copying. Give them another 30 years without shocks, and we will all say “Nihao” at the meeting.

                what ?! I know how China developed economically, I may have slept at lectures, but still, and when I am seeing, I see that Americans are reassuring the Chinese.
                I'm talking about the technologies that they developed by copying;
                If their ZTZ were built at UVZ factories, albeit in China, and not at factories like Norinko, it would be better, it seems to me. (Otherwise, it is unlikely that the Chinese comrades would allow something like this, but the essence seems to be clear)
                All technologies can be obtained not early, so late ... but getting a market for your products is not much more difficult

                    The poor USA will at least deal with itself, but I know how they work :) China and the USA have an interesting story with them - the main trading partners, where before only one of them had the opportunity to project power and their repressive apparatus to the whole world. And then suddenly the Chinese decided to amplify the sound of their violin in this duet, while they seemed to be explained to them that everyone sees and understands everything and offers to return to the boyfriend on old conditions, when the Americans intelligently explain to the Chinese what and how to do.
                    it is not for nothing that Monsieur Trump sent one of the aircraft carriers into a lonely sail without a cover off the coast of China.

                      that’s precisely what China is a problem for them and not the rest of the country, if it will continue to be a world production without ambitions it will live

                        your words to the ears of the American god, unfortunately all countries are the problem of the United States, if you are building a global empire, then accept global problems, if you try to focus on one problem, take all the surprises of life from the side where your focus has glanced. And they are directly competing with China, it’s like death for them, the old Europe wakes up with such eagerness that she’ll gobble up north and central Africa and central America; or why do you think Merkel and Macron stick to Putin?! :)

    Yes. The copy machine is not the same. Create your own metallurgy so that the armor is and aluminum does not melt at a temperature of more than 500 degrees. This is about 50 years old.

      aluminum does not melt at a temperature of 500 :) but since I understand that you are talking about alloys, well, metallurgy is not a muhra of you, but 50 years I think it’s too long, taking into account the capabilities of modern computing technologies, I would say 10-20 years

        Itself melted. On an industrial scale, with the addition of titanium and a bunch of other metals. Even rocket cases. Not flowing, but like plasticine.

          maybe my knowledge in metallurgy ends with lead melting in childhood, and my knowledge of chemistry with video clips from thoisoi :)

            Maybe the alloy is different, there is different pressure you need from 18 to 30 tons, you don’t need to squeeze out a lot of A4, 6060 is American. It's like squeezing figurines on a cake.

    This suggests that the products of domestic designers of the Indian army are still not too happy, despite all the negative cries of foreign media about Russian technology

    I am glad that everything is fine with us (in metallurgy), Ukrainians assembled engines for helicopters, but they received blades from Russia. The gut is thin.

    On T90M interesting news:

    In December 2019, Deputy Defense Minister Aleksey Krivoruchko said that according to the test results, a decision would be made on adopting and starting the serial supply of new tanks. In September, the Commander-in-Chief of the Ground Forces Oleg Salyukov said that the army began to receive the T-90M.
    T-90M "Breakthrough"
    T-90M - modification of the T-90A, created in the framework of the "Breakthrough-3". The key difference between the tank and previous models is the new design tower module with multi-layer armor, the placement of the combat unit outside the fighting compartment and with 125 mm 2A82-1M gun, the same as that of Almaty.[i] [/ i]
