Following the minister’s statement: following the T-14 Armata tank, they are trying to send Kurganets and Boomerang to Syria


The informational silence, which lasted quite a while over the promising models of armored vehicles for the Russian army and caused, in my opinion, preparations for the military parade on May 9, was suddenly broken. The Minister of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov announced the sending to Syria of promising tanks "Armata" for testing.


The statement by Minister Manturov was puzzled by many experts. Armata in Syria ... There were conversations and rumors about sending other types of military equipment for testing. Why is this happening? Why do rumors continue to multiply?

T-14 Armata will participate in hostilities as a "civilian vehicle"


Most experts immediately had questions about this. Starting from the simplest, why such a statement is made not by a representative of the Ministry of Defense, but by the Minister of Industry and, ending, a little more complicated, which tests can be carried out only in Syria. Talk that until the machine has been adopted by the Armed Forces of Russia, the civil ministry is responsible for its creation and passing the tests, let us leave it to others.

Throw a new, fairly expensive and secret tank in a civilian crew into battle? How can this be done without the participation of the Ministry of Defense? Tests of the manufacturing plant can give a great head start to soldiers and officers in working on this tank, but they did not participate in real hostilities and their advantages on the battlefield disappear instantly.

It is clear that Denis Manturov, as a high-level government official, will not just throw words into the wind. It is real that several cars are actually delivered to Syria. According to my estimates, this is not more than ten cars maximum. Our BDK simply can not take on board anymore. 10-13 tanks is the maximum, and given the mass of Armata, 10 is not more.

Doubt creeps in from only one. The capabilities of modern intelligence allow the same Americans to control all deliveries to Russian bases. As, however, and we supply to the US. The appearance of "Armata" would have been noticed even during loading and transportation. “Know and be silent” is not an American principle. And the US military is silent. NATO is silent.

It is very likely that the hype that began in connection with the statement of Mansurov is needed precisely by the Minister of Industry and Trade. It is necessary to warm up interest in this car with potential buyers. What about Syria? Syria is a place comparable in its climatic and natural conditions to the conditions of precisely potential buyers.

Following Armata, “Kurganets-25” and “Boomerang” can “go to war”


Much more interesting is the fate of other cars, which are also "silent" today. But which are mentioned in a statement by Denis Manturov, published by RIA News:

I can preliminarily say that the Kurganets-25 and Boomerang tests are planned to be completed in 2022.

Many people remember that almost every year the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation and the manufacturers of these military vehicles say that “now, literally tomorrow, the day after tomorrow, or at the very least next year”, the army will receive new infantry fighting vehicles and armored personnel carriers. Naturally, there has already been talk about the fact that samples of these machines will also be sent for testing in Syria.

I must admit that this is not the first campaign "to send to Syria" such armored vehicles. The first time these cars were "seen" there exactly a year ago, at the end of March and the beginning of April 2019. It was then that the Russian media, with reference to the fighters of the Syrian army and pro-government activists, spread information about the alleged participation of these infantry fighting vehicles and armored personnel carriers almost in the fighting. True, the news came out on April 1, which added "intrigue". Confirmation, of course, no.

By the way, then almost none of their journalists had the simplest question about the competence of these same fighters and activists. Ask the Russian army officer now what he knows about the promising developments of the same Americans, Israelis, French, Germans, Chinese? It is unlikely that you will get a clear answer even about the appearance of promising cars. And the Syrian soldiers possess such information ...

Talk that the Kurganets and Boomerang will be tested in Syria arose simply after the statement of Manturov. To experience so to experience. All at once ... By inertia ...

And there are no official confirmations.

War as the most effective way to compete


Indeed, the costs of designing, manufacturing and testing combat vehicles are enormous. Producers today must not only produce, but also earn. That is, it is necessary to convince potential buyers that the purchase of products of this particular manufacturer will give the buyer advantages in the military field over potential opponents.

Competition at the level of “paper disputes” is not effective. Another thing is the participation of products in hostilities. Agree, even today it’s silly to advertise a Kalashnikov assault rifle. How silly to advertise Grad or Tornado. It was participation in hostilities that served as the best advertisement for a sufficiently large number of types of weapons and military equipment.

The fate of the well-known modern Russian products is very indicative for understanding the situation on the arms market. How interesting was our S-400 complex to foreigners after Turkey purchased them. This is even without the direct participation of the complex in hostilities! How pilots are afraid to enter the zone that is controlled precisely by the S-400.

And another Su-57 aircraft complex. Even flights in the sky of Syria, confirmed by the Russian Ministry of Defense, even a “meeting” with American planes in the same sky, did not lead to an increase in buyers' interest in this aircraft. By the way, all of the above can be attributed to "Armata".

Brief conclusion


The coronavirus pandemic in the world has hit the economies of many countries quite strongly. Affected the military industry. If before the defense industry enterprises could afford to produce some kind of products for quite a long time, thanks to long-term contracts with their own armed forces, today the situation has changed.

And it has changed dramatically. Products became expensive and the Ministry of Defense can no longer purchase immediately and a lot. Manufacturers are forced to look for buyers "on the side." So, today in military production the same mechanisms are included that operate in the production of civilian products.

This explains the fact that the statement on the participation of the Armata tank in tests in Syria is made by the Minister of Industry and Trade, and not by the Minister of Defense or someone from the defense department.

    A Kurgan is much more urgent for our troops in Syria than Armata .... look at what level of technology the Americans and the Air Force are patrolling .... there is a difference in bullet resistance and explosion resistance. Typhoon only look adequately.

      Carrying out police and patrol operations on heavily armored vehicles is not always justified. Although, lightly armored vehicles should protect fighters from low-intensity conflicts effectively.
      In general, this is a compromise .... but it’s time to launch a new technique that is better in most respects. The life of our fighters is the most important thing, anyway.

              We need new models with the best performance characteristics.
              They, as it were, already exist ... I hope the new prime minister will not repeat the obscure "there is no money, but you ....."!

                  What vegetable? You yourself weren’t tired of these breakfasts and about the time shifts? The technique should work and be tested in the most realistic conditions. Well, mattresses will see all this in Syria, and then what? They saw it all at the Parade. There is one question, it’s important that this equipment does not fall into the hands of the adversary.

      Of course, the T-14 was not used for patrolling, nor was it used for classic databases. They tested it precisely - they set the task, prepared the provision and cover, performed the task, took indicators and analyzed the results. No one drags dozens of cars for such tests, a maximum of a platoon + one for insurance, and actions in a platoon are just one of the tasks, most of the tests are for 1-2 cars. Disguise during transportation on trailers and proper use of electronic warfare equipment will not be difficult. Manturov’s level of lies if it doesn’t exclude ... nevertheless inspires confidence.

              I have no illusions. I know what I'm writing about. And it is not counterintelligence that deals with such things, but intelligence. In the case of our tests, or sending captured samples, they work together with sappers, special operations forces, electronic warfare agents and away.

    What am I supposed to say? I already expressed my opinion about “Armata in Syria” in the comments! True, they blundered "childishly cruelly" ... but I am violet! The “minus” people themselves do not understand that a large number of minuses is an occasion for “pride”! For these minuses, as well as pluses show the number of people who paid attention to the comment! laughing Worse, I think when the zeros! As for the Syrian tests of the new armored vehicles, I am inclined to support those who claim that sending “Kurgan” and “boomerang” to Syria will bring more practical benefits to the troops than sending “arm” ... (Well, what about “armata”? The base district will ride around ... they will shoot at the targets ... and truncate, perhaps!) But you can use the "boomerangs", "Kurgan" practically by transferring special forces on sweeping highways! I don’t advise ramming the "john" ... they will take advantage of the occasion and try to knock out the armored vehicles ... As I have already said, in order to "ram", you must take IMRs with you!

      There was something similar in the Finnish War.

      It was. Experimental heavy tanks went into battle with mixed, army-factory crews at the Special Forces Fleet:
      The battle was tested by factory testers, for which a special permit was obtained from Moscow. The workers selected for this purpose underwent special training at LBTKUKS in driving cars, training in gunfire and other skills necessary in battle. The commander of the QMS crew was appointed senior lieutenant Petin, assistant commander-sergeant Mogilchenko, gunner-radio operator and gunner - two Red Army men. In addition, the crew included three workers of the Kirov plant: the driver V. Ignatiev, the mechanic A. Kunitsyn, and the transmission man A. Teterev.
      The T-100 crew consisted of servicemen of the 20th heavy tank brigade: commander Lieutenant M. Astakhov, gunners Artamonov, Kozlov, radio operator Smirnov and workers of the plant number 185 named after Kirov - driver A. Plyukhin, spare driver V. Drozhzhin and minder V. Kaplanov.

    Doubt creeps in from only one. The capabilities of modern intelligence allow the same Americans to control all deliveries to Russian bases.
    What are you talking about, author ?! The merikatos slipped the beginning of OUR PRESENCE in Syria, and the supply of most of the weapons. And taking into account modern types of camouflage, zasherah a dozen tanks is not a big deal.

      Well, yes ... Somehow everything is unexpected for them. We know what they are doing, and they poor thing do not know. Maybe send them binoculars so that they can be screwed to their camera lenses with their companions ...

    Our BDK simply can not take on board anymore. 10-13 tanks is the maximum, and given the mass of Armata, 10 is not more.
    But with the mass, it’s just all the rules, but with the dimensions ... here with the “Armata” in the hold the BDK may have problems ...
    Yes, and “Boomerang” with “Kurgan” would be nice to run around there, especially the first one, there are many tasks just under it ...

      Sergey, and what is the difference between the conditions at our Armenian military base or at the Tajik base from Syria? You can test the chassis and the impact of climate on cars there. A weapon? What is the difference between shooting at a firing range from shooting in battle? Then the question is, is it worth sending civilians to war to test armored personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles?
      But to show the most militant nomads that armored personnel carriers are better than camels.
      I think most colleagues see both machines as the end result of their work. It seems to me that they have already moved to the base models for the production of entire families of cars .. Here from this point of view there is something to think about

        Each locality is individual. It's just that in Syria, our armored cars drive both in the tail and in the mane, every day to patrol, that's where a dozen “Boomers" would run around. Heat, sand, high humidity ... races on asphalt roads with the Americans, which immediately turn into mud races ... No, now Syria is an excellent training ground, which of course does not exclude the need to run this equipment in Tajikistan and Armenia

        Civilian specialists are already present there, but of course it’s better to carry out these tests within the military ... that is, with the transfer of equipment to the "very caring and skillful" "golden" hands of our fighters

    It is necessary to warm up interest in this car with potential buyers.

    Oh, this week we’ve been too busy .. (and not only us)
    We can assume that Manturov worked his piece of bread ..

    Why do many deny that the T-14 was directly involved in the battles and why they say that the crew must be civilian specialists?

    Strange questions, why this one, and why so ... Well, I'm sorry, the authoritative community of tyrnetic ants forgot to report on the plans of the Moscow Region, and Manturov personally does not follow the language - this is a mess. Sit already in self-isolation and wash your hands more often ...

    " The appearance of "Armata" would have been noticed even during loading and transportation. “Know and be silent” is not an American principle. And the US military is silent. NATO is silent. "

    If the USA is silent, NATO is silent, and our latest secret developments are loaded for "field tests "to a distant country where there is no absolute opportunity to provide them REMAINING to the enemy ...
    Yes, and for some reason, to a country whose climate, well, absolutely does not coincide with the climate at the European theater of operations, but is very close geographically to Turkey, a NATO member ...

    Well, it happened ... for some reason ... Someone decided for some reason ...
    But the United States and NATO are silent and are clearly waiting for something ...

    After all, there is war, but in war everything happens. Is not it?
    And in war, it is sometimes quite possible, so to speak, to accidentally (purely hypothetical) capture the secret technology by the enemy ...
    This is a war. But in war everything happens, including the capture of enemy equipment.

    It happens that secret weapons are delivered to the enemy whole and intact!
    And sometimes also with technical documentation inside ... it turned out there exclusively, so to speak, to assist the crew in operating new secret equipment ...
    Exclusively just for this and for nothing else! laughing

    And in a year or two, another in America will have its own Armata ... request recourse sad

    And someone from the Russian leadership ... hmm .. bureaucracy (I do not hint at anyone, a purely hypothetical assumption winked ) suddenly, in an incomprehensible way after this "trip of the latest technology" foreign accounts can become very heavier ... This is the same life ...
    Same life as the package our most advanced secret technology to a foreign warring country ...
