What will be the next generation of tanks next to the T-14 Armata compared to others

The heavy clumsy armored vehicles that appeared at the beginning of the 20th century during the First World War, called the “tank”, began to play an increasingly significant role in the process of ground operations of the Second World War and subsequent local conflicts. Currently Tanks are also considered the main striking force of the Ground Forces and it is not surprising that so much attention is paid to the development of this type of armored vehicles. At the same time, science does not stand still and soon other tanks will come to replace classic tanks.


Tank Generations


What is a tank generation? In the specialized literature, this concept is usually understood as a group of combat vehicles (tanks), the characteristics of which have approximately the same technical parameters and design decisions, regardless of the time the tanks were taken into service.

I note right away that despite the variety of designs and types of tanks developed before World War II, a generation is not visible among them.

К первому поколению относятся танки 1950-1960 годов, разработанные с учетом достижений конструкторов лучших танков Второй мировой войны. К первому поколению принято относить: американские танки М47, М48А1 и М48А2, английские "Центурионы", советские Т-54 и Т-55, японский Тип 61.



The second generation of tanks dates back to 1960-1970. Ballistic computers and stabilization systems, night-vision devices, the first defense systems against WMD appeared on these machines, and the caliber of guns was increased. The second generation includes: American tanks M60, M60A1, English "Chieftain" and "Vickers" Mk 1, Soviet T-62, French AMX-30, German "Leopard" of modifications A1, A2 and A3.



The period from 1970 to 1980 is considered a transitional period, during which the modernization of existing tanks took place. By the transitional generation it is customary to include the American M60A2 and M60AZ tanks, the English Vickers Mk3, the German Leopard-1A4, the Soviet T-64 and T-72, the Israeli Merkava Mk1



The third generation of tanks appeared in the early 90s and is currently in service with the armies of dozens of countries of the world.

Distinctive characteristics of the tanks of this generation is the presence of an integrated fire control system, an even larger caliber of guns, alternative power plants, crew reduction and much more. The third generation includes: M1 Abrams and its modifications, English Challenger, Soviet T-80 and its modifications, German Leopard-2, Israeli Merkava Mk3 and many other tanks. Note that the French Leclerc belongs to the 3+ generation by specialists, and the Merkava MK 4 and Abrams of the M1A2SEPV2 modification belong to the 3 ++ generation.



Recently appeared Russian perspective tank T-14 Armata, some experts attribute to the next, fourth generation. The T-14 uses a revolutionary layout - the tank turret is uninhabited, the crew is located in a special protected capsule in the hull with reinforced frontal armor. The tank is equipped with a tank information management system (TIUS), which controls all components and assemblies of the machine, as well as a radar with AFAR.

What's next?


Of course, science does not stand still, including in the field of tank building. Various versions of tanks are already being developed, which will differ significantly from the ones we are used to. And it is possible that tanks, like combat vehicles, will generally disappear from the battlefield, at least in the form we are familiar with. Development of unmanned technology and controlled weapons may simply not leave a chance for the survival of the clumsy "classic tanks". And is a rather expensive combat vehicle needed on the battlefield that can be destroyed by a "cheap" missile?



What will be the next generation tank? Today it is rather difficult to answer this question, since the designers can’t offer anything new and breakthrough, or just secret designs are not reaching us yet?

Take recent news on signing the Franco-German agreement on the development of a new tank. The parties signed an agreement, distributed the costs, even divided the intellectual property on it, but the project itself is still not there, it has yet to be developed. But even in this case, we can say that there will be nothing super-breakthrough in this tank.

Of course, the designers offer various projects of "tanks of the future", which are currently impossible to implement. The most more or less feasible project can be considered the creation of crewless, fully automatic tanks with artificial intelligence (AI), the creation of which is being carried out in many countries and quite successfully. In addition, many projects related to the use of lasers on tanks, not only as a weapon, but also in active defense systems. As a weapon, even a railgun is offered.

Summing up, we can say that with regard to the new generation tank, the following should be assumed: it will be smaller, crewless, with artificial intelligence, but optionally controlled with integration into a single information-command network and with new weapons. One of the important tasks for such a combat vehicle is actions in urban areas, when an automated system can determine not only targets for a tank, but also threats emanating from it. When controlling a robot-operator-format machine with analysis of incoming data on the situation in the zone of possible damage, the number of threats may be reduced, and the situation is more controlled than in the current situation with tank operations in cities. Monitoring can be carried out network-centrically - using drones, from cameras of the new generation tank itself, from cameras and sensors of other combat units and infantrymen located on the ground. The exchange of such data with their automated analysis can lead to a real revolution in warfare.

But it will not be soon, therefore, until the middle of the 21st century, and maybe even further, classic tanks developed at the end of the 20th century will be in service with the armies of the world.

          From the same series. They planned to start production in 2018. To date, as many as 1 pieces have been produced. Of course it looks futuristic, licked everything that is possible. They put a gun in the casing. They called it a light tank.

      the bottom of the important tasks for such a combat vehicle is actions in urban development, when the automated system can determine not only the goals for the tank, but also the threats emanating from it.

    English "Vickers" Mk3, German "Leopard-1A4", Soviet T-64

    Refer the Soviet T-64 to the intermediate generation
    during which the modernization of existing tanks took place.
    ?
    The tank that led to the concept of "main battle tank"?
    An attempt to "find ends" led to interesting results.
    By the author:
    The period from 1970 to 1980 is considered a transitional period, during which the modernization of existing tanks took place. The transitional generation is usually attributed to the American tanks M60A2 and M60AZ, the English Vickers Mk3, the German Leopard-1A4, the Soviet T-64 and T-72, the Israeli Merkava Mk1

    On Wiki:
    The first transitional generation (1970-1980) [8]: American tanks M60A2 and M60AZ, English Vickers Mk 3, German Leopard 1A4, Soviet T-64 and T-72, Italian OF-40, Swiss Pz68 , Japanese Type 74, Israeli "Merkava" MK1.

    As they say find 3 differences. The whole article is a reprint of https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tanking_classification
    with the addition of photos. Those who wish can check.
    In such cases, it is customary to refer to the source.

    The author, as they like to express themselves here, learn the materiel. I will not talk about foreign tanks, but domestic ones belong to the first generation T-54, 55, 62. The second generation is the T-64, 72, 80 and 90. The T-14 is the first tank of the THIRD generation. The third generation only appears in tanks, the 4th generation in the submarine fleet (Borey and Ash) and the fifth generation is only in aviation.

    The future will be for crewless drones (Uranus is our first trial version), which will probably reduce their size and weight and increase their armament due to the lack of crew, so the T-14 will most likely not go into a large series

    Помесь букофф , непонятно на чём основанных классификаций и "прогнозов" на основе компьютерных игр . А мой прогноз , что танк в классическом понимании после арматы и её последователей исчезнет вовсе . Некуда ему уже особо заметно меняться без смены технологического уровня материалов оружия и движителей , а значит и концепций устройства - применения . Лет через сорок-пятьдесят посмотрим . А до достижения вышеозначенного уровня можно про пресловутый облик рассуждать до хрипоты , а можно к гадалке сходить , шобы карты на энтот самый облик раскинула ... Вероятность правильных выводов будет одинаковой .

And you laid out a tank with much more caterpillars than theirs, and they are so poorly arranged that if the caterpillar of the inner row flies off, it will be dancing with tambourines much worse than the Japanese in the video, and German menageries, "Tigers "and Panther.

          Well, she just can't fly there. Destroyed ... yes, that is, "torn", so what? I think that the designer thought over this question. Moreover, such a project was not an isolated one. The running layout of the Object 726 tank weighing 48 tons was also tested.


          sometimes loaded up to 88 tons.


          And its driving performance, and most importantly cross-country ability was significantly higher than that of the T-54 and IS-8 (T-10)


          Four-tracked vehicle (track depth 140-150 mm) next to the stuck T-10 tank.

    Что вообще можно думать о танках в 21 веке? Только то, что при современных военных технологиях таких, как мощное пехотное противотанковое вооружение в виде гранатометов, как боевое использование дронов и ударных вертолетов вкупе со штурмовой авиацией и, наконец, просто ударов системами РСЗО с воздействием систем РЭБ на танковую электронику. Я уже не говорю об артиллерии - традиционных средствах борьбы с танками, становится ясно, что танки серьезно подвинули в военных конфликтах описанные выше средства вооружения.
    Well, perhaps in a war against wild tribes with stone bows and arrows, and against civilians, a tank will become a real threat, but, I repeat, this is only until the time when they have modern grenade launchers and Molotov cocktails.
    The proof is the war in the Donbass, when tanks were destroyed almost hundreds a day.
    Therefore, the arguments about the advantages, advantages and disadvantages of Russian and American tanks are most likely of a purely academic nature, and they, the arguments, are similar to the arguments of children on a bench at the entrance - And we have gas in our apartment, and you?
    I think that in future conflicts there will be no battles like the tank battle near Prokhorovka, the Germans have no motivation, and the Americans, with all their technologies against the Russian warriors, have a small intestine - this is clearly seen from local conflicts around the planet.
    On February 20, 2019, Putin announced the readiness of the RF Armed Forces to strike, if necessary, not only in the territories where the "enemy" missiles are based, but also in "decision centers."
    Now the war will go according to this scenario - nuclear charges explode off the coast of England and the United States and the war ends - there will be no one to fight with. All!

      In 21 years, the Universal Wave Oscillation Generator (UHVK) will be created.
      The principle of operation of the GWHC is to generate and transmit wave information of an object of different levels from one point in space to another. Thus, the superposition effect in quantum mechanics is confirmed, according to which the location of an object is assumed immediately everywhere, and only after determining its properties, it materializes in space.
      The levels of information transmission can be different, from the transmission of sound and image to the transmission of the object itself.
      In the same way energy can be transmitted, in fact, wave information of a higher level is transmitted in order to receive energy. GWHCs are possible both for home use and for industrial use, up to moving in interstellar space.
      It is probably possible to adjust the transmitted object during transmission. For example, when teleporting a person, it will be possible to conduct his rejuvenation or health adjustment. Moreover, during materialization, they arose at the desired point in space-time, and not only within the materializer.

          How do you know what will happen in 21 years?

          A conversation between two astronomers.
          According to my information, a comet will fly past the Earth through 2 billion 638 million 384 thousand 472 years 4 months 9 days 23 hours 48 seconds.
          Are you sure ? And then they will laugh at us.

              Наш энергетический мир – это один из уровней гармоничного состояния покоя колебаний и амплитуд Вселенской Разумной Энергетической Системы (ВРЭС), в пределах одного энергетического поля. Остальные миры имеют другой уровень состояния покоя колебаний и амплитуд, отличный от нашего мира. Миры вплетаются и пересекаются между собой, но почти никогда не конфликтуют из-за разности уровней колебаний и амплитуд. Места, где они пересекаются, называются в народе местами силы, они обладают повышенным источником аномальных явлений. Вероятно, в тех точках, где пересекаются одновременно несколько уровней эта сила очень мощная, вся эта конструкция напоминает перепутанную рыбацкую сеть и матрешку в пространстве и движении. А, при конфликте, резонансе колебаний и сбое происходят аномалии, привидения и НЛО в результате проникновения одного мира в другой. Количество миров бесконечно на всех уровнях. Все процессы, происходящие в нашем мире цикличны, и предыдущий цикл отличается от следующего наличием новой информации и, конечно, последствиями, связанными с этим.
              And the fractals of the level of the Universes that enter into resonance become the initiators of the formation of black holes on the one hand and new stars, planets and galaxies on the other.
              Universal Intelligent Energy System (VRES), people call God.
              And the division of the world into material and ideal is in general an ancient error. Our energy world is material, everything is material in it, including words, thoughts and the human gaze, and dreams, it's just a matter of levels.
              I had the experience of making sure that mirrors also have an energy effect on the environment.
              The lower level idealism is the highest level materialism. And so on to infinity, both up and down the levels. In fact, this is a confirmation of the fractality of the whole world. This is the main thing in understanding the essence of the universe - everything in our energy world is material, only everything depends on the levels. And the impossibility to confirm this speaks of our weak instrumentation. The materialism of an ideal world is available to us, so far, on a subconscious level.

                Proof of the existence of parallel worlds.
                Корпускулярно-волновой дуализм и эффект наблюдателя в опыте Юнга скорее всего результат нашего примитивного наблюдательно-измерительного аппарата. За корпускулы мы принимаем, как нижнюю часть волны, а всю амплитуду энергетического колебания электрона мы не видим. Электрон – это часть энергетического поля в определённой частоте и амплитуде, он волна с известной силой энергии, и только проходя, через щели у него меняется частота и амплитуда колебаний. Вот тогда-то мы и видим волновое состояние электрона в виде корпускулы. Это как с водой, при изменении ситуации она может менять своё агрегатное состояние. Вероятно, наблюдатель меняет частоту колебания и амплитуду электрона высшего порядка колебаний и амплитуд на низший порядок, который уже доступен нашим приборам.
                In the lower part of the sinusoid, the wave, as it were, stops and we observe the corpuscle, this is our world, as well as parallel worlds that are on the upper and lower parts of the sinusoid. I wonder what percentage of the state on the wave sinusoid we exist in this energy world?

                  The universe consists of levels. It looks like a pyramid. At the top is the energy wave of the Moebius band, which oscillates, rotates and moves, changing its size, creates a lower level with particles of matter. It is the basis of the universe and matter. Below the level is the product of its activity - particles, which are the initiators of the creation of the lower level, which also oscillate, rotate and move, me their size, create the lower level of matter. And so on ad infinitum, both up the levels and down.
                  And ether is not a term, but a very dense energy substance, therefore electromagnetic waves and light are transmitted at such an enormous speed, it is like a shock by a locomotive of composition, the shock impulse is transmitted very clearly and without failures. Tesla believed, and I agree with him, that the ether is very dense, which is why the waves instantly move in it.

                  The Universal Intelligent Energy System (VRES), - this binary system is the basis of the whole universe, it is similar in design features to the Moebius band. Which has one surface and two charges at once - plus and minus, which fight for their survival and are reasonable as a result of this struggle, people also call this confrontation as a struggle of unity and opposites, in fact - this is the Alpha and Omega of the whole universe, people call this binary system God.
                  Actually, these are the very principles of superposition and quantum entanglement of particles at the same time, about which everyone tries with a smart look.

                    And how does the VRES report that in 21 years a Universal Wave Oscillation Generator (UHWC) will be created? I wonder how this is done technically

                      Вселенная имеет энергетическую основу, в ней всё материально, она состоит из энергии, я называю её Вселенская Разумная Энергетическая Система (ВРЭС).
                      Man is a part of this energy world, we are one with him. Each of us is the cosmos itself, knowledge of it in us from birth. Another thing is that we are aware of this only at the subconscious level.
                      Information from VRES is in a continuous stream to absolutely everyone, but not everyone understands and perceives it due to an imperfect transceiver apparatus, that is, the brain.
                      You know that too.
                      And really, only a few can explain it. And the bulk of people, due to their weak mental development, lack of education, and simply linguistic deficit, remain in a happy idiotic and moronic ignorance.
                      So, in creative people, the transceiver apparatus, that is, the brain is better connected, works better with VRES than in an ordinary person. Therefore, we have geniuses scientists, musicians, poets, artists and other creators who, in fact, move civilization. And the rest they are only spoiled by what will be immediately apparent from the moronic comments on this comment.

      On February 20, 2019, Putin announced the readiness of the RF Armed Forces to strike, if necessary, not only in the territories where the "enemy" missiles are based, but also in "decision centers."

      The same thing was said in Syria.

      MBT is the most protected and dangerous target on the battlefield, its opponent is trying to destroy in the first place. His cannon is the fastest and cheapest destruction of everything within the line of sight.
      Think about the fact that if you do not have tanks, then the enemy will direct a bunch of forces and means that are usually directed against them against your infantry and artillery. Tanks save the lives of infantry ....

    I note right away that despite the variety of designs and types of tanks developed before World War II, a generation is not visible among them.

    "I am an artist. I see so!" - Otherwise, this nonsense can not be explained. To put it mildly, the author controversially began his classification of tanks. The article pleased with good photos and was bewildered by its content. Bullshit is a complete detective. negative

    Кто автор по образованию? И откуда он взял классификацию танков по поколениям... у нас в танкостроении Армата это вообще-то 3 после военное поколение, в отличии от авиации.

    Oga, T-64 and 72 are transitional generation along with the usual modernization of the M60. And M1 and Leo-2 born in 1980, generation 90s !!! And the T-80 with them ... and he is a different generation than 64 and 72 ....
    Or it was written by a child, or an idolater in front of the West, even afraid to think about the fact that a new generation of tanks in the USSR appeared more than 10 years earlier than in the West ... Actually, like the T-14 ..
    Given the fact that the T-14 has not yet been adopted, and its counterparts are just beginning to come up with, the next generation after Armata will be in the year 2070m ....

    The author is mistaken. No analytics, everything is out of my head. Nevertheless, the “tank of the future" developed in the USA and going if not to replace it then in addition to Abrams is a classic four-seater trough where only the integrated KAZ is new from the novelties and the tank’s weight is reduced while maintaining the elephant’s dimensions. Rails, lasers and other fantasy require non-existent compact power sources. Recently developed Chinese MBT-3000 was created according to the classical scheme. The T-14 developed in the Russian Federation is not devoid of structural problems and has not yet become the tank of today so that you cross it out of your "future" so suddenly. Traditional chemical guns have not yet exhausted themselves, it is definitely too early to talk about lasers and rails. For example, the author - plasma initiators in shells and liquid propellant mixtures allow to achieve results unattainable for powder shells with capsule initiation. With regard to protection, KAZs have not yet left childhood, as once-on-board defense systems in aviation, which became mandatory over time despite the increase in the cost of the machine. As once MANPADS and SAMs did not displace airplanes, so ATGMs will never displace tanks. For the choice "on the tank or on foot" is never a choice. Tanks can become more expensive, meaner and less numerous by analogy with aviation.

    The next generation of tanks will most likely be powered by batteries. Small-sized 1 or 2 diesel engines will be rotated by generators, and tanks will move thanks to electric motors.

    and whether a rather expensive fighting vehicle is needed on the battlefield, which can be destroyed by a "cheap" missile

    Our army neighbors had a case when the DNR T-64 from PCMS was destroyed. Apparently - the bullet hit the barrel when the OFS with the cocked fuse was driven into it. The tower smashed into smithereens small nafig. But to draw a conclusion from such and similar cases about the "uselessness of tanks" - I would somehow not risk it ...

      Somewhere deep in my head, I remember that the detonator cocked already after the shell left the bore ... although this may be a false memory request

        Honestly I do not know. I'm not strong smile in tank weapons and artillery ammunition. SVD is closer to me. smile Факт тот, что после простой пулеметной очереди - его разнесло вдребезги. Потом все репу чесали, даже командующий ОК подробности запрашивал. Кто-то из дедушек, чуть ли еще не в доперестроечном Союзе служивших в танковых - выдал вот такое предположение.

          Rather, I believe that at the same time as this line, something more serious flew into it.

          Here, I found:

          After the projectile leaves the channel of the gun barrel the compressed spring 7 (Fig. 4) presses the sleeve 8 against the impact drum 6 instantly, the lower balls 4 (see Fig. 2) roll out into the cavity of the fuse head sleeve 10 under the action of centrifugal forces, enable the sleeve 8 together with the instant action drum rise to the stop in the ledge of the sleeve 10 and release the sting 9 passage to the igniter capsule 14. In the locking device, the spring 23 compressed during firing lifts the settling sleeve 22, and the spring 24 (compressed during fuse assembly) opens and raises the stopper 25, the lower end of which come out detonator sockets of bushing 33, thus releasing the pivot bushing 37 which pivot under the action of the spring 20 wound up turns and puts the detonator capsule 36 in a combat position (over transfer charge 49)

            I will not argue - because it's not rotterdam copenhagen. smile But I think that if “something else had arrived”, then they would have written to those who had arrived and recorded. There are always many who wish in such cases. Anti-tankers also love stars on their MT-12s. Especially - there for calculating not only asterisks in this case.

    The most more or less feasible project can be considered the creation of crewless, fully automatic tanks with artificial intelligence (AI), the creation of which is being carried out in many countries and is quite successful.

    And if you think a little? Biological intelligence? What will happen if in a company of robotic women with "artificial idiots" (which has not been created anywhere by the way) in the tower - will these AIs equally appreciate the priority of the target, for example?

    The following comes to mind:
    1). The main weapon will be a gun working on the principle of coilgun, that is, "Gauss gun";
    2). The tank will be controlled by an onboard neural network;
    3). Protection against electromagnetic and microwave radiation;
    4). Extensive use of active camouflage technologies, stealth in the radio and infrared range;
    5). Electric transmission;
    6). The energy source will be either a hydrogen fuel cell or a device (unit) based on an ionistor.
    This will most likely appear by the end of the 21st century.
