Military Review

A visual comparison of the compartments for the T-14 Armata crew and other tanks is presented.

71

Continuing the theme of comparing the linear dimensions (along the length of the case and its height) of the Russian Tanks T-14 “Armata” with tanks of other countries released material with a comparison of a slightly different sense.


The Canadian engineer from Toronto (Ontario) Michael (Mike) Mikhailovich, whose diagrams the Military Review reported the day before, presents a new comparative visualization. This time it is dedicated to crew compartments.



The comparison is carried out on the T-14 tanks "Armata" (Russia), Type99 (China), Merkava (Israel), Leclerc (France), "Leopard-2" (Germany).



It is noted that the compartment for the crew of the Russian T-14 Armata tank is the most protected in comparison with other tanks.



This is understandable. After all, the tower is not used to accommodate the T-14 crew, unlike the tanks of the previous generation. The crew of "Almaty" is an armored capsule located in front of the tank corps. The volume of this capsule is not as large as in a number of other tanks (including those for which a visual comparison is made), but ergonomics (convenience) for the tankers themselves are significantly increased. The capsule is able to protect the crew, for example, from the consequences of fire of the ammunition, giving time to the military to leave the car before detonation.

      It is not correct to compare only by these pictures. We need to add pictures "top view".
      Then our compartment will look like a rectangle from side to side, and for example, Leopard-2, the crew’s living space is something like this:

      In the basket on the right side of the breech gun 2 people are sitting on the left side 1-in (charging). The height from the floor to the roof is 1,65 m. Well, in the case, the driver has less space than the loader.

          They are the same as everywhere else. Only a lot of attention was paid, so that the penetration of the armor does not lead to explosions and fires. 2nd generation ATGMs such as TOU and Kornetov with a penetration of 1200mm for DZ already allow you not to choose a place to hit. Punch everywhere. And 3rd generation hit the roof.

            In the forehead is not everywhere, do not exaggerate. It definitely won’t penetrate the forehead of the tower, the building is 50/50. The third generation is only in the west.
            Now armored vehicles are starting to be serially based on KAZ. In Israel already, in the USA they began to appear in the army.
            In fact, a tank is a very vulnerable vehicle; in itself, it is an easy target for infantry. Without the support of infantry and other vehicles, it is useless. It must be used in the right tactical formations.

      "Is there no infantry compartment in the back of the Merkava?" ////
      ----
      There is no longer a special compartment. While the shells were 105 mm, there was a place.
      Racks with 120 mm shells almost "eaten" it.
      There is a passage between the shelves, where three infantrymen can squat down.
      Another person can be squeezed into the tower below the commander. In 2006, Lebanon in tanks sometimes carried with them the spotters-coordinators of artillery and aviation.

    The volume of this capsule is not as large as in a number of other tanks (including those for which there is a visual comparison)
    Absolutely incorrect judgment based on the "pictures", as they do not show that the "living space" of classic tanks is not completely given to the crew, it is heavily crammed with various equipment, assemblies and mechanisms, one breech is worth something, and what remains for people is quite commensurate with the internal volume of the "Armata" capsule

    From the Canadian infographic, everyone now understood that our new T14 tank is the largest, and the crew compartment in it is the smallest, but the most protected. ... win!
    Instead of ellipsis, depending on who is from which country, they can put either "We" or "They".
    Such is the power of infographics, anyone can draw their conclusions, either that it’s easier to get into a large size, or even if you get in, the crew will remain intact, or that the crew in a small allocated volume will be uncomfortable.

      And the Americans claim that the armored curtain in the tower of Abrams saves the crew from detonation. Like, when knocking out the knockout panels of the tower, the curtain saves the crew. In any case, they remain alive. Most likely, there is something similar in Armata too.

        I did not know that in Merkava dry closet.
        Then on the Abram urgent hot tub, they love comfort.
        Actually, in the world, I recognize only 2 tank schools, Jews are almost Nashin guys - Germany and us. Tanks are made for combat, not for driving. The rest have either overly sophisticated or imitation. As an example, South Korea with the "Black Eagle".

          Well, such an attitude to the issue of natural need will be fraught with additional. victims of a nuclear war or biological / chemical contamination of the area. So the question, although ridiculous, is far from idle ..

    It's not like moderators, here are the owners of the site Ottudova ...

    And this is very not good, the Jews are still those terry Rus-haters and merge such a site to them - this is sabotage, coupled with betrayal))

      In Armata, all three crew members are seated in one line (shoulder to shoulder), which greatly limits the thickness of the side armor, I think it would make sense to remove the ammunition in the turret making it larger, and place the crew one by one in the free space, this would reduce the area of ​​the front armor plate and increase the thickness of the side plates, and the tank itself will become shorter by one rink and maybe even narrower, that is, approach the dimensions of the T-72

    With this, the t-14 has already wiped the entire bald patch, it’s better to brag about how many of them are in the army, one, two, and miscalculated. Even if they buy 100 units, as they say, for such an army as the Russian, this is nothing.
