What is the modernization of T-64 tanks - told at the Lviv armored plant

49

The Armed Forces of Ukraine received a batch of repaired and "modernized" tanks T-64 The work was carried out at the Lviv Armored Plant (LBTZ). In an interview with Ukrainian media, the director of LBTZ spoke about what a modernized version of the T-64 tank is.


It is stated that the T-64 Bulat tanks received "the latest navigation and communications equipment, as well as night vision devices." From the statement of the director of the Lviv plant:

The modernization of the T-64 affected primarily communication systems and fire control. Now the crews will be able to use the latest digital radio stations, satellite navigation. New dynamic protection kits are installed there and many more options for more effective combat missions.

An order for serial repair and modernization of T-64 tanks was received from the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine in 2017. The very “modernization” was launched in 2019.

As noted in the Ukrainian press, earlier the modernization of T-64 tanks “to such a level” was carried out exclusively by the Kharkov Armored Plant. With the help of additional facilities - the Lviv Armored Plant - “the process of re-equipping the Ukrainian army will significantly accelerate.”

The exact number of T-64 tanks transferred to the APU after repair is not reported. The value is called "about ten armored vehicles."

T-64 is a medium tank developed in the USSR. Its combat weight is 36 tons, the crew is three people. It has a 115 mm 2A21 cannon with 40 rounds of ammunition. Engine power - 700 hp (upgraded version - 850 hp). Cruising on the highway - up to 650 km.

          In 1964, a model was developed, testing and refinement of which continued until it was adopted in 1967. The tank, called the T-64, was armed with a 115-mm smooth-bore D-68 cannon, the ammunition of which consisted of 40 separate-loading shots with a partially burning sleeve.

          In 1969, the production of a modernized tank began, which received the name T-1973A in 64, differed from the T-64 by the installation of a 125-mm 2A26 smooth-bore cannon, which caused changes in the design of the automatic loader, rangefinder sight and stabilizer ..... "

      It has a 115-mm 2A21 cannon with 40 rounds of ammunition.

      Well, since the 70s it (the tank) had a 125mm cannon, but as I understand modernized tanks have a later date of creation, then there can be no 115mm cannon on the tank in principle.

    The T-64 had a 115 mm 2A21 (D-68) cannon and a coaxial 7,62 mm PKT machine gun. For the first time in the world, an automatic system for loading a gun with a choice of the type of shells was used on it, which made it possible to reduce the crew by removing the loader from it. The tank's crew consisted of three people. The tank was first equipped with an optical quantum (laser) rangefinder. For the first time in the world, the armor of a tank became combined in order to increase the protection against cumulative shells and new types of shells with a deformable warhead and a plastic explosive. The undercarriage outside received protective turning shields, for the same purpose. Due to the inexpediency of the tank, the anti-aircraft machine gun was removed (since the speed of front-line aviation increased significantly, and the successful shelling of an aircraft flying at high speed became unlikely).
    Further modification of the T-64A tank (from 1968) received thicker armor and a 125 mm cannon, which actually changed the previous classification of tanks into medium and heavy. The new tank combined the qualities of both, so it became the world's first main battle tank. The modernized version of this tank under the designation T-64B (1976) became the world's first main battle tank with missile and cannon armament.

      If you are talking about the T-64 with a 115 mm TP, there was no laser (quantum) range finder, there was an optical one with a base tube,

      laser rangefinder appeared only on the modification of the T-64B

      And already much later, some of the T-64A tanks, during the overhaul, underwent modernizations, when the optical sight was replaced with the TPD-K1 sight

      The mistake came out, on the samples T64 (ob.432) (I still found such machines in the army) and T64A (ob.434) sights TPD2-49 were installed, NO LASERS THERE ARE STILL SUN.
      TPD64-434 was also installed on the T2B (vol. 49A), the upgrade went through the hull and the engine became 5TDF. With the declared 720 hp, but if you believe your seat, there was no smell of such a herd, the engine was very gentle, prone to overheating and dust wear , and this is only a replacement for the motor. Although I and I tried to repair them (I was the deputy for technical companies_86g_GSVG), but rested on the availability of components, a classmate in Leipzig on tank repair slightly helped, but only the control unit in good condition, was not enough for a long time.
      So let's continue to T64B1 (vol. 437) we have completely redesigned the turret on the 1G42 sighting system integrated into the guided projectile system via the RF channel, in order to control it we had to keep the marker on the rocket tracer (in the back) and the remote control to the right to the left. with the 1A40 sighting system and the 1A45 evolution on T72B machines (vol.172B), the missile was controlled by a modulated laser beam there. Different manufacturers have different concepts.

    It should be noted that the troops do not like Bulat. The tank was heavy by 3,5 tons, but the hodovka remained the same. A sharp ride is not advisable, in order to avoid damage to the torsion bars and rollers.

    Hahelys so boast of "the best tank in the world" (worthless to say aloud) that they prefer Him to upgrade the T-64.

    And the whole tank industry of Ukraine is reduced to "our tank is the best, but we certainly won’t produce it"

    All the power of tank Ukraine was in alliance with Russia, but now who needs them? NATO? Europe? So there unification goes to Leonard, and Kharkov - to the reproductive organ.

    No one will allow the "Europeans" to push their own into Europe, for competition. Euro-NATO school is not Soviet. It was in the Union that they could rivet their own, and now let them at least try to get a license for Leopards.

    I want to see how the Hahels sing in 20-30 years about their tanks and aircraft. Nothing of their own will remain, but they will buy over the hill.

        at another plant (St. Petersburg), changed the chassis (twin rollers, instead of plates, long torsions, instead of shorties), changed the engine, the housing in the area of ​​the engine was changed, the tower was changed. In general, from the T-64 imposed on the release, only the loading mechanism was left, and the weakened zone in the driver’s area, which they could not get rid of.

    The main thing in "modernization" is the replacement of tank helmets with pans. When communicating inside the tank, the commander does not speak in a voice, but knocks on the pan with his boot with the alphabet "Morse-out" and the number of blows the tanker knows for which piece of iron to pull.

    Replaced the r-123 with the r-173 and painted ... that’s all “the latest navigation and communication tools, as well as night vision devices”

      Not respected, the connection there was good in kind, “bluepoint” we read in German, we also added a satellite translator with output to a tablet, the manufacturer went on a trip to China, but it’s not done badly. Some T72 installed Nokia communications equipment. These are the machines that moderated the Poles. Also they showed the infrared imager for observation and target designation at the commander and the thermal imaging channel at the sight, the sighting system is also new, whose I didn’t know (well, I couldn’t subtract who did) the characteristics are not bad, the Pts sight is similar to Leopard. The truth is that protection against illumination is weak, it needs to be increased reaction speed. Let's say it worked out so well.

      There was no such thing. ob. 430, To clarify, they were released no more than 50 cars. Later gunsmiths won when in 58 or 59 they nevertheless sold the 125mm tank gun project. And also a new young team of designers in Kharkov quickly took off and presented a new tank project .432. I read about this in the secret library of KVTIu. winked

        I will not argue, in the USSR there were probably different projects, they could afford to experiment, but now 115mm on a modernized tank is completely irrelevant and archaic

    I’m generally a signalman, and I perfectly understand the essence of such digital communications. I don’t know how it is now, but in my time such digital radio stations were from enemies of the people! Moreover, the factory workers themselves were sitting in a puddle with their "products"! I don’t know how it is now, but in my opinion, the tankman in the tank is repeatedly remembered in the appropriate terms .... And such digital systems are just getting out of order!

    [quoteТ-64 - medium tank developed in the USSR. Its combat weight is 36 tons, the crew is three people. It has a 115-mm 2A21 cannon with 40 rounds of ammunition. Engine power - 700 hp (upgraded version - 850 hp). The cruising range on the highway is up to 650 km.] [/ Quote] This is a clear gag of an anonymous ignoramus, there is not a single source with such words in an interview
