Tests of the modernized T-72AMT tank started in Ukraine

In Ukraine, tests began on a prototype of a modernized tank T-72AMT, presented in 2017. Testing takes place at the Desna training ground in the Chernihiv region. This is reported by Ukrainian media.


Reportedly, specialists from the State Research Institute for Testing and Certification of Arms and Military Equipment are testing a prototype of the modernized T-72 tank, made for the Ukrainian Armed Forces. The planned test of a new modification of the tank under the designation T-72AMT was previously reported by the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine when transferring the modernized T-72 tanks to the Armed Forces.

This time the military department limited itself to reporting that new devices were installed on the prototype of the tank, the engine and the tank were being tested in conditions close to the combat ones. Fighting is planned.


However, it was previously reported that in the course of modernization, T-72AMT installed "night vision devices with a third-generation image intensifier tube", a commander’s observation device TKN-3UM, a sighting device 1K13-49 Neman (from the T-72B tank) with the ability to conduct of fire with the Combat tank guided missile, the night device of the driver TNK-72 or TVN-4BUP, the radio stations of the Turkish company Aselsan and Libid-K-2RB (Motorola assembly of the Kiev company Dolya and Co. Ltd.) instead of R-123 (R-173), a set of navigation equipment GLONASS / GPS SN-3003 "Basalt" (produced by the state enterprise "Orizon-Navigation", Smela, Yernigov region), a V-84-1 engine instead of a V-46, an auxiliary generator, a dynamic protection complex modeled on the T-72UA tank (using part of the Knife system elements), protective grilles at the rear of the hull and turret, drive wheels with caterpillars of the T-80 type, neon headlights, a 12,7-mm anti-aircraft machine-gun mount with remote control from the T-64BV tank and additional armor, rear-view cameras and rear-view mirrors.

Which of all of the above is precisely established is not known.

    Just a question: who and where will they be assembled / upgraded?
    And what kind of shisha?
    How many modernizations of everything and everything have already been? And where is it all? But no.

        Do you need to burn them?
        How many years has there been a pseudo calm?
        APU works mainly with artillery. Tanks are out there somewhere.
        And stand, it seems they will be for a long time.
        And, after all, no one here knows where these "modified" tanks are being taken, which, most likely, they are taking from the front line, because stocks are already not enough. Maybe they are quietly selling "monkeys with a grenade" to the Afrocontinent.

            Handbook "Armed forces of the world", Potpourri, Minsk, 2002. The Armed Forces had 4063 tanks, of which 320 T-80, 2200 T-64,1300 T-72,150 T-55. It was withdrawn to Ukraine from Eastern Europe in 1992 -1995, about 800 soldiers and officers of the Soviet Army with all weapons. Now nothing new is being done, only modernization from storage bases and overhaul by donation method — from 000-3 vehicles restore one.

        I do not know: according to UkroSMI, over the past five years, almost a hundred new types of weapons and modifications have been developed and put into production. Has anyone seen them?
        From riflemen to heavy weapons.

        People from the republics should know better, but from there there is no information about the wunderwaffles in service.

        Surely, it's like in Matrasia - cut dough. Only there is something to cut, and then the rest is finished.

          The only thing I liked about the modernization of the T-64 in the T-84 Oplot was that the tank began to move back at a speed of 35 km / h, convenient for maneuvering.

            Humor appreciated good (incompetence too! negative ):
            - Firstly: the T-84 is based on the T-80UD, and not on the basis of the T-64!
            - Secondly: T-84 and BM Oplot - these are DIFFERENT tanks, although they were created on the basis of the same T-80UD!

        So the whole world uses GPS (including you, it’s in your phone, navigator), although a third of the world has a fire on what the Americans are worth (and you don’t glow with love for them, for sure). The Yankees themselves use the Russian GLONASS and the Chinese Beidou together with GPS, although they consider these countries to be a probable opponent No. 1 and No. 2.

      They are modernizing in sufficient quantities, very often there is information on the transfer of the next batch with photos. Another question is that Kharkov produced the T-64 and T-80 (and their modifications), but the T-72 did not, but there is a certain amount, do not throw it away. And yes, basically T-64 (including BM Bulat) is produced / modernized.

          But did you look at the details that make a tank a tank, or did the fence draw all the attention? The T-72AG with respect to the T-72B3 has a larger DZ coverage in the frontal projection, there are no wild holes between the DZ blocks on the tower, and it also has better heat-and-television equipment (albeit imported)

    And Belarus allegedly bought 300 V-84-1 diesel engines from Russia, allegedly for itself, and resold it to Ukraine in 2016. The Russian general Melnik, who lobbed this deal, received 5 years and is still polishing it. After six months, Ukraine also received 300 GTD-1000 for repairing the T-80s that the AFU had. Before that, Ukraine did not commission the T-80, hoping to win LDNR T-64-mi.

        Pakistan was sold with guns of its own production. Not 450, but 300. And the tanks were not T-80, but T-84. The same eighty, only with the Kharkov horizontally opposed engine 6TDF. And he is unreliable and moody in the adjustment. They disassembled the cannon, took the dimensions, ordered trunks to the Sumy pipe plant. Well, the chemical composition of the steel was cut off, in the chemical laboratory and order. And the hardening mode? The Russian GRU did not interfere, it simply whispered to Pakistan that they say you shoot the cannon at the firing range, after 50 shots it starts to spit and the shell flies into the milk. That’s Pakistan and returned the tanks. The same story happened with 800 armored personnel carriers delivered to Iraq - cracks in the hulls; half of them lack batteries. In the same way, they paid off gas for Turkmenistan: they promised new diesel locomotives, and put tinted control units. Result: Turkmenistan does not sell gas to Ukraine after that.

    But this scheme of modernization is not banter, by chance? Question cabe about the side rear-view mirrors a la as in ancient Toyota. What is the functionality? Or is it such a collective farm tuning? Then why in the best traditions of postmodernism the chromed three-beam logo from the gelding on the VLD was not screwed on?

    Which of the above is precisely established is not known

    the press service of the GNII ISO VT reported that
    The prototype has a night vision device with electron-optical converters and a night sight with the possibility of firing a guided missile. Given the increase in mass, a more powerful engine was installed, the chassis elements were replaced, and a video parking system was added to simplify the maneuvering of a combat vehicle

    Also,
    T-72 version is equipped with a new digital radio station, satellite navigation system, a new complex of dynamic protection, an updated fire extinguishing system

    so almost everything that was stated is installed.

    The phrase in the article made fun
    neon lights
    What kind of know-how is this? There are xenon, there are LED. There is a neon light. For the first time I hear the neon lights)

    It cannot be that))) T - 72 is a Moskal tank, an orthodox banderlog cannot even come close to it.
