The tankman told how to get out of a burning tank

The tankman told how to get out of a burning tank

Direct hit of an enemy’s shell in a tank is a situation that is perceived as a real nightmare by any tanker. Depending on what kind of ammunition “flies by tank"And what is the tank itself, the further development of events can go according to several scenarios.


One of these scenarios is when the crew of the combat vehicle remains alive, and the tank itself engulfs the flames. Tankers need to take all measures to leave the tank. Any delay can cost them their lives, because the ammunition can detonate from temperature exposure.

How to get out of a burning tank is described on the channel “Memoirs of a soldier”. The video, as the author says, was created on the basis of the recollections of a tanker whose tank was hit in the spring of 1945 near Berlin.

From the story:

Hands are trying to grab the red-hot rescue manhole cover. Before my eyes is a purple black, sometimes bursting with green flashes. Two heads hit the manhole cover at once. Instinctively, I push my loader down.

Further, all literary colors and images describe how the tanker managed to leave the armored car.



One of the comments to the video:

It is in such a literary language that he told how they got out of a burning tank?

    My grandfather burned four times for real ... But I was only once trained at a school to leave a burning educational machine.
    There was such a standard - the old T 54 was buried, four were put into it, they were doused with napalm from above, set on fire and knock on the armor - get out! The rest are from a platoon next to sand, a nightmare and fire extinguishers. Fire down if that ...
    There was not much fun even in the exercises ...

      Willingly I believe. In an emergency even from a house that is not burning to get out - amba. Everybody screams, shoots somewhere - ka-ak fucked horns past the open door laughing

        Yes. According to the instructor. Stacks of 200 liters of barrels stood next to the fuel depot. One from there was rolled out, opened and poured into the bucket the viscous mucus of yellow-green color. It flowed badly. Sorry, but it costed like glue or snot. Flashed from the torch wonderfully. Stewed badly.

          What you are trying to call napalm in the Soviet army was called a flamethrower mixture that you really can’t put out with a fire extinguisher or a nightmare, and if this rubbish gets on your clothes, then severe burns are guaranteed. So either your bosses were headless or you exaggerate to put it mildly.

        Yes, the Native American lied ... There was no such training in the Soviet Army, lying much to the red-skinned Vinnitus. He laughed at his violent fantasies and at those victims of the Unified State Examination who had been instructed by the pluses for this bullshit.
        1. Look for my colleagues from KVTIU. 1991 year. Place - Gorenichi training ground, near Kiev.
          The second standard is the extinguishing of a friend. He is in the old ozk. A blot of the same napalm is applied to the back. Arson. The task is to knock down and put out a tarp.
          If you are not lucky with the service, then I worked out all the required tank standards, including a 100km march, underwater driving (including leaving a flooded car), swimming in an infantry fighting vehicle, and so on. So I have the honor!

            a napalm blot on the back? Are you serious? Do you know what the burning temperature of napalm is? no protective suit will help
            1. Well, let's not argue. We were told that napalm. And we were taught to extinguish, not endure. And, of course, in addition to the OZK, there was also a summer jumpsuit and an Afghan.

              Combustion temperature from 500 to 900 degrees. It is a mixture of gasoline / kerosene with a thickener. Does not burn without oxygen / air. OZK holds the mixture, without through burning, from 30 to 45 seconds. In the military schools of the USSR / Russia, there was a standard for extinguishing napalm on a friend. Many couch generals confuse napalm with white phosphorus and termite. There are napalm mixtures that can not be extinguished with water, because they add alkali metals. Regarding the red-hot manhole cover - it’s quite realistic, since we are talking about a tower hatch and if the RP hits the tank, it is likely that the tank burned as much as a candle.

                Well, what napalm do you persecute bullshit? Napalm was developed in the USA and was first used in Vietnam and in the USSR a similar product was called a flamethrower mixture. By the way, it would not be superfluous for you to see what napalm did to those people on whose skin it got.

            I don’t know about the tank, but they worked out such a standard. Was there napalm. or I don’t remember something else. But some kind of combustible thick liquid was successfully extinguished if it was covered with a cloak-tent or covered with earth. That is, without air access.

          Native American didn’t lie, I had to leave the “burning armored personnel carrier” (a specially welded model that was pulled along the rails — drenched with napalm), and jump out of the burning trench, and overcome the “fire lane” and even put out the fire of my OZK (at the OZK) , on the back, the nachkhim napalm applied purely symbolically).

          There were, in all the programs of the SV schools, occupations on the subject of WMD, the struggle for the survivability of military vehicles in the case of the use of AP by the enemy. They burned and extinguished the equipment, as well as smeared and extinguished them (using old overcoats or OZKs) with napalm, a lot of “interesting” things were learned practically.

      A couple of years ago, I wandered into the copywriters exchange ... I found several tasks on the subject of an original text of the following nature: Write the text starting with the words "I woke up, but two Germans in front of me ...." and then the number of characters and content requirements .
      There were more than one such task ... But all on the theme of the Second World War.
      Now reading something you need to think hard - who wrote it .. Perhaps a talented dreamer for little money.
      Yes, reviews are written in the same way on product sites, etc.

I have a childhood friend / was, he was driving in an APC in the “minute” square, next to the driver. he alone and survived. his explosion from this APC and threw it away. all the others burned down ....... no one survived except him ...... and now he managed to tell me .... while he was in the hospital in ours in Saratov, he was lucky, on the one hand ... ...

      Sure, more than that, "be thrown out by an explosion"(through the commander’s hatch in the upper frontal armored plate of the hull?) - is not possible no .

        I can be confused. this is from his story. although of course I climbed into the APC. perhaps it was somehow different. but he’s just saying that he was thrown out by an explosion. then my friend was still adequate and could tell what happened. but alas, it was not for long. exactly half a year after he left the hospital .... now you can’t ask him anymore. if only from other BMPs and armored personnel carriers someone saw his colleagues, then yes. but if they see what I wrote. they will correct me.

          I can believe anything, especially if it's for the good yes

          BUT, you yourself look at the video (by your link), and evaluate whether we are talking about a crew member "hby the explosion", or surviving the man behind the aft T-72 , that is, OUT of the tank, at the time of contact ...

      Questions arise, why is the manhole cover hot, how did it heat up?
      If you find out, how it burned, what burned there?
      And if it warmed up inside, what was the temperature in the tank, that the lid was heated, and the crew was alive?

    "It was in such a literary language that he told how they got out of a burning tank?" (c) I also thought - the dashing grandfather about purple black and green sparks twists. In addition to me, I had to get into this white strip and nothing terrible came to my head. Maybe from the fact that there was no tank?

    The story, of course, was processed by a writer who wrote a little. In general, it is reliable.

    In my school, there was an almost blind teacher — a former tanker — who was scarred from burns. Very beloved and respected. But we - the fool - did not ask him about HIS war ... I VERY regret it now.

    Once popped up, though from MTLB, as I do not remember. Consciousness began when a pair of diesel fuel exploded, a column of flame flew out through the open hatch. They were put out by fire extinguishers. Then they tried using the launcher to start a stalled engine. Thank God wound up. Slowly went to the debriefing to the authorities.

      It was napalm that was usually used in the classroom, and this is according to the accompanying documentation of the party, and by the way, the name "napalm" is collective and includes countless combinations of fuel-based incendiary mixes based on the situation, the presence of additives and components. The man is telling the truth , these were classes on the subject of WMD, which is included in the program of all SV schools (I don’t know about aviation and the fleet, but I think that there it was studied in practice)

      Conducted these classes with cadets at the school. For this, there were barrels with a mixture of BBC in the warehouse - this is our analogue of napalm. And classes on applying this mixture to the OZK cloak, followed by extinguishing the student, were included in the curriculum of schools in the SA.

    I remember the late Fadin ironically described how he got out of the tank. He had Lend-Lease trousers in his car there, he kept them at the hatch, and thought, if that was what, I would also seize the exit. What is there, and the car does not seem to even burn, although a self-propelled gun was shown on it.

    The Soviet tanks were bad in that there were few hatches. The chances for each had its own hatch, and accordingly there were less losses in the crews. However, the Germans would not have been Germans if they had done the Russian language “randomly”.
