Fastest main battle tanks in the world

76

High speed is an important advantage, but not the main characteristic of the main combat tank... However, we decided to compile a rating of the fastest main battle tanks.


We note right away that a number of modern main battle tanks have approximately the same speed - within 50 km / h on rough terrain and 70 km / h on the highway, therefore, among tanks with similar characteristics, we selected only a few of the most popular representatives.

Our rating includes both Russian and foreign tanks, both currently in service in the armed forces of various countries of the world, and promising ones.

"Merkava"


The Israeli main battle tank "Merkava" is deservedly considered one of the most effective and reliable MBT in the world, but it cannot boast of high speed: off-road, the "Merkava" can reach speeds of around 40 km / h, and accelerate on the highway to about 60-65 km / h. The mobility of an Israeli tank is complicated by its very powerful and heavy protection.

However, given the specifics of the hostilities waged by Israel, and this is a relatively limited area and often street battles, high speed is not needed for the main battle tank of the Israel Defense Forces, but the protection of the crew from enemy shells is very important for it.

T-90


The modern Russian main battle tank T-90 in its original form cannot boast of a high speed, which is only 40 km / h off-road and 65 km / h on the highway. However, the latest modifications of the T-90, which have not yet entered mass production, have more interesting characteristics in terms of speed.

In particular, the T-90AM is capable of speeds of 45 km / h on rough terrain and up to 70 km / h on the highway. That is, the latest modifications of the Russian tank have better speed characteristics than the Israeli Merkava and are comparable to fast foreign MBTs.

K2 Black Panther


The South Korean Black Panther main battle tank uses a new transmission unit with a 1500 hp engine. In addition, the tank also has a 400 hp gas turbine unit, which ensures the operation of the generator and electrical equipment of the combat vehicle when the engine is off. As for the speed, the South Korean tank demonstrates quite high performance: on rough terrain, it is capable of accelerating to 50 km / h, moving along the highway at a maximum speed of 70 km / h.

AMX-56 Leclerc


The French MBT "Leclerc" was developed in the 1980s to replace the outdated AMX-30 tank at that time. The Leclerc is currently considered the most expensive main battle tank in the world, which explains the relatively small number of copies in service with the armies of France and the United Arab Emirates.
Among other advantages of the tank, which we will not talk about today, it is worth highlighting its high speed. On rough terrain "Leclerc" can reach speeds of up to 50 km / h, on the highway - up to 71 km / h. Although this speed does not provide the tank with the first place in terms of mobility, it can be attributed to the number of fairly fast tanks.

Leopard 2A7


One of the latest modifications of the famous German main battle tank "Leopard" 2A7 differs from its predecessors in its higher speed. 1500 hp engine allows the tank to accelerate on the highway to a speed of 72 km / h, which is even higher than that of the "French" "Leclerc". Currently, "Leopards" are in service not only with the German Bundeswehr, but also with the armies of many other countries of the world. The Revolution MBT modification of the Leopard 2A5, which is in service with the Bundeswehr and the Indonesian ground forces, also develops high speed.

Type 99 (ZTZ-99)


The Chinese Type 99 main battle tank is a logical continuation of the concept of the Soviet T-72 tank, but with modern additions. Serial production of the tank began in 1998, currently the PLA has approximately 600 Type-99 and 250 Type-99A.
One of the undoubted advantages of the Chinese tank is its high mobility. On rough terrain Type 99 is capable of speeds up to 60 km / h, on the highway - up to 80 km / h. At the same time, the tank accelerates to 32 km / h in just 12 seconds.

T-14 "Armata"


The promising Russian main battle tank "Armata", if it is put into mass production, will rightfully become the fastest MBT in the world. According to the Russian military, the T-14 "Armata" tank is capable of speeds up to 90 km / h, not only on the highway, but also over rough terrain, which makes it definitely faster than almost all existing battle tanks in the world. However, although the T-14 "Armata" tanks have already been demonstrated at military parades more than once, they have not yet entered serial production.

    Even 20 km / h on crossroads is really a lot ... let alone 40 ... not to mention 60 ... And by the way, where are the real "sprinters" of the T-80 and M1 Abrams tank community in the rating?

      We do NOT have an "Armata" tank. there is universal platform "Armata", and one of its applications is the T-14 MBT. = _ =

      The T-80 is good for the BM driving exercise. And the rest is still a big question. It is not for nothing that after the collapse of the union, this tank was forgotten, they left Germany and that's it, only now they are joining it to the northern territories.

          Yes, in the Far East in post-Soviet times, a division was formed, which was based on the Kuril Islands. My former commander became the division commander. With the relief of the islands, the use of tanks is generally problematic. Previously, there were IS-3s, without engines, but with BC 3,5., As stationary firing points.

    We love all kinds of "experts" to measure themselves with pipis in ratings.
    The only and irrefutable rating for any military equipment is real military operations, and not with the Papuans as the United States is fighting, but with an equal rival. Whoever wins in the end gets the rating.

        [quote] [/ quote [quote = Soko] In my opinion, comparing the speed of tanks on the highway does not make sense at all. [/ quote]
        Absolutely right. Speed ​​on the highway is determined by the speed of the convoy, not a single tank, in addition, the tracks, by definition, do not provide traction on the asphalt, and the rubber pads are good only for peacetime, since they are not universal and do not work on the ground. Any attempt to turn at 70 km / h on asphalt is still a circus. Cross-country speed rating, the same guessing on the coffee grounds. The ratio of mass and power is of course comparable figures, but there is also a dependence of soil and mass. There are big doubts that Abrams and Merkava will be able to walk on virgin snow or black soil even on equal terms with the T-90. After field tests, the Swedes were shocked by the T-80's cross-country ability in the snow. The main thing is that the maximum speed does not in any way characterize the mobility of equipment in real conditions. How many of those personnel and equipment do you need to carry for each Leclerc or Abrams? How many km. march will withstand the Merkava in the European theater of operations? How efficient will each of the listed tanks remain in conditions of disrupted fuel and lubricants supply (use of pasture), how maintainable is the chassis and engine by the crew? The maximum speed figures, in no way, will not affect the time of the march in the battalion (regiment, brigade) and in no way characterize the speed during the battle. The thrust-to-weight ratio is a much more important value, since it really affects the tank's ability to quickly change position. It's like by car - well, maybe it's 250, but I don't drive like that, but when overtaking 300 horses are very useful, since they reduce the time in the oncoming lane (under fire)))

    Fans of fast and jumping tanks have not yet disappeared. But the speed of movement of one tank company, even without the forces and means of reinforcement on the roads, is a maximum of 35-40 km / h. And if a battalion is coming, it is even slower, even slower on the battlefield. If we talk about the movement of a single tank, then yes, it can move quickly. From personal experience winter, Transbaikalia, tank ob. 84 on military trials in 1984, 330 km in 6.5 hours of movement, evening turns into night, with overcoming Onon on the ice.

      Yes, this habit of comparing single machines all the time by parameters is tired even. after 60 km, even on a flat surface, the tank is practically 40 + tons of metal flying and, more importantly, not controllable.

        The battalion is much slower than the company, the column of mixed equipment, with the indicated distances. If you prepared an order for a march for TB, everything is discussed there. And in battle, the speed of the tank will be limited by the speed of the slowest sample.

            Sergei, I, of course, quit almost 20 years ago, but you want to say that in modern conditions, the Combat Regulations determine the movement of a battalion in two columns? In my time, two columns were for the regiment. And the division into wheeled and tracked vehicles was not envisaged at all. Or are you talking about a peaceful life?

                In ZabVo we always walked in one column, and in Belarus wheeled vehicles could move in the rear column of the regiment, but it was very awkward. Who in the rear column of the regiment also needs battalion rear services. There are enough of their worries. And the battalion commander is worried about what happened to the rear and where are they, and who should be appointed senior there? As a rule, the most important slacker on the march is the political officer. There are also 24 vehicles and only one support platoon commander, who also needs to make food for the battalion.

            In self-propelled artillery - where I served (not in the USSR / Russia) - the speed in the convoy is the speed of the forklift (which removes the shells from the trucks). It's just a bullfight such a happiness to drive. No cab, no shock absorbers, off-road.

      The Syrian experience has shown that the dynamics of the tank, that is, acceleration, goes into the chapter. High acceleration is needed when changing positions quickly, evading modern AT, etc. A sharp maneuver on the battlefield is becoming an accepted tactical technique. The dynamics of acceleration must be introduced into the characteristics of the MBT under consideration ...

The highest speed that. I saw -105 km / h on my speedometer. But this is from the hill on a straight road with a slope of 30-40 degrees.

The company makes a 120 km march with the stabilizers turned on, with an exit to the firing area, when approaching by communication, the numbers of the cars are indicated, which go to the headmistress and without stopping perform the combat firing exercise. Nobody had any refusals. Companies T-80, T-72 and T-64. More accurate information will not be available. On VI everything is carried out to the limit.

                    So what is the speed of the company? 30-40, and when driving 20-40 km / h. it would be better to focus on throttle response, with the gearbox they also thought about reverse gear from 5 km.ch. raised. 70km.h and according to the fantasies of our designers and 100 km / h. a tank needs a fifth paw like a dog

                      Yes, the speed of the company is 30-40 on the highway, on forest roads even less. In battle, generally calculate, it all depends on the theater of operations. In the bogs of Belarus one thing, in the Siberian taiga another, in Transbaikalia the third. On the T-72b, 840 horses are not enough for Transbaikalia, but in Siberia and Belarus, in my opinion, there were enough.

          No matter what ... And the ability of a tank to be able to pick up speed very quickly from a standstill, that's what ...

            Well, on the defensive, maybe even when changing positions. On the march 30 km / h and no more.
            In the offensive (battle line) at the speed of the infantry (100 m / min.) And not come off. The echelon of development of success - it is advisable to bypass the centers of resistance, and if you attack, then you shouldn't be fooled without artillery, aviation and infantry (that is, at the appropriate pace).

              Yes, in any kind of battle, the ability to quickly change your location is important, especially since you can attack by moving from cover to cover

              Yes? And from the line, to the line of deployment and transition to the attack? And if the attack goes without dismounting the infantry?

              And if by a separate train? For this "echelon" to set in motion, many others will have to work hard in laying "paths"

    It is not correct to compare the tanks used and the project that is exhibited at parades. At least a hundred will be released, then it can be considered a participant in the ratings.

      They pressed the pedal to the floor and rushed away so quickly that the author did not notice them ... The rating was written on the basis of those who remained.

    I wonder what is "rough terrain" in general?
    Perhaps the fact that for the Germans or the French this is the same "area" for Russia is quite a "highway".

        This is a very correct observation. In normal countries, the transport of tanks on the highway is carried out by tank carriers. Including in Israel. Only tanks will be driven on the asphalt. The author is just a clown, comparing highway speeds. I just don't even talk about the rest ...

    Tankers said that at a speed of over 70 km / h, the tank becomes uncontrollable.

      At speeds over 70 km / h, the power loss in the tracked drive increases sharply. A further increase leads to increased wear of the chassis and even greater losses (you have to pay for everything)

      I will say more, problems begin at 40-50. And this is not because of the hardware .. for some reason, no one during the discussion does not think about the mechanics of the driver.

    "Merkava" is not a tank, but an SPG. Moreover, in full body kit it has a mass of 75 tons and crawls along the highway in exactly the same way as the British Challenger - at the speed of a snail.

        Saw under Kemijärvi dates were dragging their Leopard, such a beautiful one, but the first thought was "to burn it". Somehow this idea popped up on the machine.))))
        The Finns themselves post the movements of their technique on YouTube.

    Israeli tank mobility gets complicated its a very powerful and heavy defense.

    What makes it HARDER and why? Have you not tasted what Google translate gave you when translating an English source?

    Quite a strange selection, but where did the T-80 go?
    It has not been removed from service at all, but is being modernized.
    Just he is the most "smart".
