The first modernized MBT Leopard-2PL entered the Polish army

Polish army began to receive modernized Tanks Leopard 2PL. Work on modernization is carried out by the consortium "Polish armory group "(Polska Grupa Zbrojeniowa SA - PGZ), according to TSAMTO.


According to the publication, the Polish consortium PGZ delivered the first two Leopard-2PL tanks that underwent modernization to the Polish armed forces. The delivery of three more tanks is expected within the next week. The tanks will go into service with the 10th Armored Cavalry Brigade of the 11th Armored Cavalry Division.

Reportedly, modernization are tanks "Leopard-2A4", which are in service with the Polish army. The modernization includes: replacing hydraulic gun stabilization systems and turret drive with electric ones and improving the gun while maintaining its length and adapting it to new ammunition. In addition, the Leopard-2PL is equipped with modified sighting and observation systems for the commander and gunner with the 3rd generation thermal imaging camera. Additional armored modules and a new fire extinguishing system are installed on the tower. The technical condition of the tanks is also fully restored.

All work is carried out by Polish defense enterprises. A total of 2 Leopard-128A2 MBTs of the Polish army, obtained from the presence of the Bundeswehr in 4-2002, will be upgraded to the Leopard-2003PL level.

      128 cars is a serious amount. Modernization to fit today. Fire hazardous hydraulics were removed, the scope was replaced, the protection was slightly improved, and the life of the machines was restored.

        142 Leopard 2A4 want to upgrade to Leopard 2PL by 2023.
        Five Leopard 2PL tanks were handed over to the Polish army under a contract of 2015. In total, it is planned to upgrade 142 Leopard 2A4 units for the needs of the Polish Armed Forces.
        During the upgrade to the Leopard 2PL level, the tanks underwent the following changes:
        mounted hinged composite armor, significantly improving protection against certain types of ammunition;
        increased ballistic protection of the tower;
        hydraulic mechanisms for stabilizing the gun and turret drives were replaced by electric ones - this improved the operation of the mechanisms and increased the space inside the machine;
        cameras were installed to improve visibility for the driver and a new surveillance system for the crew;
        the L44 gun was modernized, which allows him to use new, more powerful shells;
        an automatic fire extinguishing system is installed;
        increased ammunition;
        auxiliary power unit installed.

    The side protection is not impressive at all. Zloty was not enough for the new L55 cannon and the remote anti-aircraft machine gun mount. There is no talk about KAZ and KOEP. Just as they did not master the removal of the gunner's sight to the roof (like A5 / 6/7): the hole in the turret defense is much more significant than the notorious "gaps" between the dynamic protection of the T-72B3. Not that any BOPS will go there, but the simplest RPG seems to be enough. Reminds an analogue of the early T-72B3 (arr 11) in Polish. Numbers to make it bigger and cheaper. Only here the price is like 4-5 pieces. T-72B3 (the last prices of about 90 million rubles were announced) wink . And 142 pieces against the 1500-1600 T-72B3 do not look convincing. So you need to increase costs crying Conclusion: German "businessmen" threw the Polish goyim. Instead of selling full-fledged modern combat vehicles, they first sold them the ancient Leopard-2A4 from storage on a deshman, and then sold an expensive upgrade package to make the ancient 2A4 look a little less ancient 2A4 at the price of almost new 2A7.

        what model Russia wanted to buy, I remember ifa slipped ten years ago.

        In 2011, the commander-in-chief of the Russian Ground Forces said that one T-90 could buy three Leopards. In those years, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation purchased T-90s from Uralvagonzavod at 118 million rubles apiece. Prices for "Leopard-2A6" in those years started from 143,5 to 287 million rubles. In fact, no one was going to buy Leopards, the commander-in-chief just drew attention to the rise in the cost of the T-90. Its cost grew from year to year: in 2004 it was 36 million rubles, at the end of 2006 - 42 million rubles, and at the beginning of 2007 - T-90A ("Object 188A1") cost - 56 million rubles. rub. In 2010, the purchase price of the T-90 under contracts for the supply to the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation amounted to 70 million rubles. And for 2011, the cost of the new T-90 increased significantly and reached 118 million rubles.

        The first versions of the T-90 Russian troops received back in the 90s, about 120 units were purchased. At zero, they bought two battalions per year T-90. In this case, the bulk (more than 2000) of tanks of combat units (T-72A / B and T-62) was released back in the USSR and required an urgent replacement. Therefore, the task was set: to keep within 52 million per tank, superior to the main for the BTV T-72A / B, and to give the army at least 180-200 such vehicles a year. Otherwise, the BTV would simply be degraded, turning into an infantry. Therefore, they stopped purchasing T-90s and began mass-building budget T-72B3.

          T-72BZ is not CONSTRUCTION of New tanks, but only the modernization of old ones. And again - the Leopards were set back in 02-03, when there were no BZs. What is 120 tanks for the country? For Germany, this is a good amount, for Russia, something is about zero.

      All work is carried out by forces Polish defense enterprises.

      ... maybe in the future the psheks, having received the experience of modernizing used Leopards, will then drink them to Ukraine (sooner or later, Ukraine will completely lose its competence in tank building) ....

              One BTZ and three TRZ is too much for Ukraine, provided that BTZ them. Malysheva, can only carry out repairs and limited modernization of tanks ..... and then until the stocks of Soviet tanks are in storage, all the rest needs financial investments and personnel ....
              TRZs can only carry out major repairs of tanks ...
              The first one is probably the Kiev armored factory (in fact, it’s not an armored one but a repair one), because located in a prime location on the outskirts of Kiev ...
              There is no point in investing in Kharkiv TRZ and BTZ, everything is outdated and Kharkiv is on the border with the "aggressor", there is only Lviv, where you can arrange the modernization of NATO used tanks after huge financial investments, but this is utopia ...

And only on small episodic deliveries not a single engineering industry can hold on. Tank repair plants can still support the pants on this, but there is no production of new tanks.

          Why should she lose?

          I apologize. Already lost.
          When analyzing the capabilities of the Ukrainian industry in the production of tanks, it should be borne in mind that since the Soviet Union in Ukraine was serious industrial potential for the production of tanks. So, the Malyshev Kharkov plant mass-produced tanks, and in the mid-70s he produced 96 T-64B tanks a month. In addition, there were a number of tank repair plants, the Kharkov tank repair plant was focused on overhaul and modernization of the T-64 tanks, and the Lviv tank repair plant - on overhaul and modernization of the T-72 tanks.
          Over the years of the collapse of Ukrainian industry, this potential has been seriously undermined, but the foundation is still preserved. Ukraine can no longer produce new tanks, but it is quite able to restore and upgrade previously released ones.
          Ukraine today is not able to produce new tanksbut it is quite capable of upgrading previously released tanks and bringing them to the modern level. It can upgrade tanks of the T-64B family to the level of the T-80UD tank, which in terms of firepower surpasses almost all modifications of the T-72, with the exception of the last T-72M1M and T-90M. This is possible subject to appropriate financing and restoration of technological processes for the production of components for the T80-UD tank in Ukraine, which were carried out during the implementation of the Pakistani contract.

                  It’s interesting just what tanks the APU will change to in 10 years ....

      Nato does not forbid his tanks to do.

      For example, Poland does just that, produces its own "clone" of the Soviet T-72, which does not prevent it from purchasing used German "Leopards" from the storage warehouses of the Bundeswehr, which the Federal Republic of Germany had cut to Poland, "Leopards" of old modifications stored in Portugal Spain is in poor condition ... therefore, the Poles are forced to "pick up" from the FRG the tanks it is removing from service ...

    Part of the money, and this is not a small amount, was spent on Polish enterprises. It seems, of course, a little expensive for such a tank. But it was just a way to subsidize the Polish defense industry without the risk of problems with Brussels. On the other hand, Poland also has an additional 100 Leopard 2 a5 tanks. And Russia is not able to use all of its best tanks against Poland ...

    A rare delirium from Aristarchus. The Leopards have never had a KAZ, the level of protection in the frontal projection is +/- 30 ° about 1100 mm, more abruptly than that of Proryv.
    Whence the figure of 1500 T-72B3, it was about 1000 cars. Yes, for a second, Poland has about 1800 tanks ... How do we like to fault someone else's (hostile)
    PS: But the tank is beautiful, the Germans know how to do it. Well, who doubts, compare the Lada and Mercedes. We still have not mastered the diesel engine to Armata. 1130 l / s is the highest achieved, serial. Roots grow from B-2

      All these Polish attempts to become at least some significant power are being broken into the lessons of history. Everything always ends with the next partition of Poland.

      In fact, the Polish hereditary dynasties, first of the Piast and then of the Jagiellonian dynasties, would not have been suppressed, there would have been Poland from sea to sea and in the east to the Volga, or even the Urals. Siberia would be seized by the Chinese, or the Japanese, or some other Asians. But the dynasties were suppressed, and the Panovs wanted crap. So that the diet appointed and removed the cruel. And so that any lord in the Diet for his "not dozvalam" could cancel any decision. Well, the famous right to rokosh. And after all, even with this crap democracy, they took Moscow and almost crushed the whole of Russia. And if they had a solid central power, they would have crushed it, not in the Troubles so a little later. All too loudly screaming lords would be shortened to the tongue, if necessary, then along with the head. And it would be the same in Russia as in Ukraine. The nobility would have joined the ranks of the heraldic gentry. Over time, many would be baptized into Catholicism, like the same Gediminovichs and Vishnevets, in the past Orthodox families. Orthodoxy would remain for cattle, and that would gradually be replaced by Uniatism.
      Thank God that the Russians were smart enough to choose not a diet or a chamber, but a king. Whether the choice of the Romanovs was good, whether it was bad, is another topic, but the main thing is that there was a tsar and not democracy. As a result, Russia ended up where it is, the greatest power of Eurasia, and Poland where it is, a little more than the Baltic Limitrophs. And it could have been where she was from Catherine to the end of the 1st World War, if not for the famous events of 1917 and not for Tukhachevsky, who had set foot near Warsaw.
      So the Poles feel this at the subconscious level, and they hate Russia and the Russians because Russia has taken a place that, it would seem, was destined for Poland by history and geography.

    The modernization of the Polish Leopards is carried out by a joint project with Rheinmetall / Germany /.
    The following improvements are envisaged: a new hinged composite armor, which significantly improves protection against certain types of ammunition, increased ballistic protection of the turret, replacing hydraulic mechanisms for stabilizing the gun and turret drives with electric ones, which improves the operation of mechanisms and increases the space inside the machine, the upgraded L44 gun (allows the use of new , more powerful shells) and increased ammunition, auxiliary power plant, a new automatic fire extinguishing system, cameras to improve visibility for the driver and a new surveillance system for the crew.

    Well, the tank is good in its own way, like all the maid in Jormani ..., but in principle it is good for it, as well as for 72 with a Polish body kit. The birds from the RPGs in Syria both burned the Turkish tigers and will burn.
