    Harimau latest turkish-indonesian medium tank reaches serial production

    Rather, Turkish-Belgian ..
    The hull and chassis of the tank are completely created by Turkish FNSS, and the tank tower is a Belgian steel double CMI Defense Cockerill 3105 with a 105 mm rifled gun CMI Defense CT-CV 105HP and a coaxial 7,62 mm machine gun equipped with a muzzle brake.

      ONLY for Indonesia. For myself. Births, Altai.
      Indonesia, too, you can understand, go down to the purchase of used equipment do not want. Modern tanks are not cheap.
      It turns out the "golden" middle. Moreover, it complies (for some who are dissatisfied) with NATO standards.

        What is the middle ground?
        With such a reservation .... While he will turn his 105-mm cannon and charge, the barmalei on their "carts" will make a sieve out of it. Indonesia is a Muslim country. The probability of the appearance of local barmalei is high.

          Compare the tanks of the 60s with these new generations of tanks. Or do you think that the Indonesians are completely stupid, do not understand what they need? And what about the self-propelled guns here, which has a large gun and a cardboard case? Harimau (Kaplan) is modern, comfortable, equipped with the latest control and fire systems. "What is there to envy." That comrade has "reasons," even without discussing technology and weapons. Reading his comments for months, we have experience.

            Sorry, but why compare it? here I have the same "perplexity" to this "armored miracle". Have armor that protects against 14,5 mm, at best from 25 mm ???????? And this with a weight of 32-35 tons ... Why is it there so "weighted"?
            Here is a tank of the mid-60s, T-64 ob. 432 Weight, up to 35 tons, but has a full anti-ballistic reservation and a 115-mm tank gun with a loading mechanism

            Dear Jeyhun, do you at least explain your position .. with the new modern control systems and fire you are right .. what about the rest? the gun okay well, 105 mm in modern design and with shots still suits, the speaker's mobility should also be good .. BUT at the same time, where did 35 tons come from with such insignificant armor? in fact, we get an average tank almost comparable in weight to the old T54-55, but at the same time the same T55 holds not only 14.5 with regard to the entire hull but also holds armor-piercing shells 25-30 mm in the forehead .. the logic is simply not clear why such a machine is needed if Is it not light if it does not swim or is it planned to drop it? I just don’t understand, explain the advantages of this machine .. to drive partisans in light weapons? Then should there be good protection against RPGs do they have? if not, then this is a step 70 years ago ..

      They themselves are going to Malaysia, which holds a bunch of ancestral territories.
      These tanks are a means of reinforcing amphibious groups.

      Or do you think they just have the largest airborne forces in the region, and the largest mobilized deployable landing potential in the region?



      These tanks are replacing the old AMXam.


      And they were selected just for deployment in the amplification forces of the attacking waves.


      That is an amplification of the amphibian wave. Because it’s not very convenient to unload Leopards2 right away, but you need to support Pandurs, BMP-3, BMP-2, BTR-4.

        But the BMP-3 is in no way inferior to weapons or armor. To put it mildly. It was enough to buy more than BMP-3. And it’s better and the logistics are easier, and the landing can be transported.

          BMP-3 is better than this Turkish-Belgian .. der'mo-craft in all respects. In general, for all. for all and fundamentally better. For that region, the car is almost perfect.
          And the Indonesians are buying them - they recently signed a third contract for the next batch. A little truth. But this is only the Indonesian Navy marines in the mind and adequate. The Indonesian land hunters - the consumers of this "tank" - are inadequate. I studied this army - a nightmare and a complete misunderstanding of what they need in real life.

    Reservation of the hull and turret of the tank provides protection against an armor-piercing bullet of 14,5 mm from 200 m
    What kind of tank is this? This "BMP" without infantry, with the weight of a medium tank. . In a word, "to hell with a bow on the side." In the war, the Germans had such, such as the T-4, just shot anti-tank rifles.

    It would be better if the holes in the hull were more covert, then the tank would become very invulnerable.

                They are so not so with the USA. The previous administration approved the sworn friends from Malaysia F-18. And in general, she was friends with Malaysia clearly against Indonesia. This administration is threatening terrible sanctions if the Su-35 arrives. From what the contract has suspended. Well, in fairness, the contract was suspended if you didn’t catch it because of the new EU legislation on a palm tree - a total of 50% of the product share:
                a) can not be sold quickly;
                b) palm prices are sagging due to overproduction and restrictions of one of the leading consumers, and in the future the situation will worsen, as the laws in other countries will also be tightened.

                Now they are looking for other products for a commodity share. Participants were also not found on Carnation with cardamom, because there is no way to pour so much into the market, and spices are expensive to store and big losses.

          They have more tanks right now than many of the old European giants. Moreover, there are heavy Leo2 in a fashionable body kit.


          Well, a different trifle just adapted to the region, which will be replaced by the Tigers.



          Well, they hit Wheeled tanks too. Pandurov bought with the same Belgian tower.


          They made their Badak with 90mm Crokelite. They bought used earpieces from Koreans - they also screwed 90mm Croquelite.

      Spacious, comfortable, technologically advanced. For spaciousness and convenience, dimensions, and this weight adds. This is an adult tank for the jungle, for moist forest soil, and the design is designed for this, not light, but much easier than the older brothers. You should not compare them with old, equally weighing, not technologically advanced devices. But the T-34s already show an example, which was a very good tank for its time. But I'm sorry, the 21st century, even tankers want to die in comfortable conditions. This happens once But before the incident, you will have to sit for many years, manage this device.

          KAPLAN MT is expected to have accurate direct-fire capabilities, a wide range of ammunition, and superior tactical and strategic mobility.

          KAPLAN MT is located at the rear of the vehicle and provides a power-to-weight ratio of “20 BG / ton”. KAPLAN MT, which has increased mobility thanks to a 6-wheel shockproof suspension system based on two-pin pallets and torsion bars, adapts to both terrain and terrain, especially in mountainous conditions with high rough terrain and bridges with low bearing capacity. It is a vehicle that can successfully combine superior motion control features. The car runs at full power and smoothly, in a wide range of heights and humidity, from -18 ° C to + 55 ° C.

    I believe the Indonesians know better. The Turks were able to offer them the right thing. Our not. It remains only to slander.

    We rejoice. There is gunpowder in the flasks from the island natives. Let everyone buy trash in a row. And the Turks unlearn how to do real things (do not study in the future), since it will come down ....

    Spacious, comfortable, technologically advanced. For spaciousness and convenience, dimensions, and this weight adds. This is an adult tank for the jungle, for moist forest soil, and the design is designed for this, not light, but much easier than the older brothers. You should not compare them with old, equally weighing, not technologically advanced devices. But the T-34s already show an example, which was a very good tank for its time. But I'm sorry, the 21st century, even tankers want to die in comfortable conditions. This happens once But before the incident, you will have to sit for many years, manage this device.

    Spacious, poorly armored and clearly visible car will help to die quickly.
