"Can play a decisive role in a military conflict": the Pakistani army received new tanks "Al-Khalid-1"

A solemn ceremony of transferring the upgraded version from the factory to the troops took place in Pakistan tank Al-Khalid. We are talking about the "Al-Khalid-1" version, which, as stated, is intended to replace the tanks of the previous version.


Al-Khalid-1 is a development of the Sino-Pakistani MBT-2000 main battle tank.

The ceremony took place at Heavy Industries Texila (HIT), a Pakistani state defense enterprise. The tanks were received by the representative of the Ministry of Defense of the country, General Qamar Javad Bajwa, according to whom, the new tank will give "additional opportunities for the Pakistani army to repel aggression on land."

General Bajwa:

Al-Khalid-1 can play a decisive role in a military conflict.

According to the representative of the Ministry of Defense, it is extremely important for Pakistan to develop its own production of armored vehicles, to follow the path of improving technologies.

Bajwa:

In case of any provocation, our army is ready to respond.

The Indian press has already noted that the Pakistani general "made threats."

The Al-Khalid-1 tank, like its predecessor, has a 125 mm cannon with up to 40 rounds of ammunition. The main difference between the upgraded tank and Al-Khalid is the presence of multiple on-board electronic options, including screens with multiple cameras. "Al-Khalid-1" has an increased range of at least 50 km. According to some reports, it has a new engine with a capacity of about 1280 hp. Updated fire control system.

Pakistani notes that at one time the creation of this line of tanks began with the work of a joint Pakistani-Chinese-Ukrainian enterprise. That is why Al-Khalid has a certain similarity with the T-84.

    Al-Khalid-1 is actually a licensed version of the Chinese Type 90-IIM and is associated with the T-84 only by the engine (and this is not confirmed) and the caliber of the weapon.

        Al-Khalid for sure, or Al-Khalid-1 too? The engine power is given at 1280 hp, and the Ukrainians did not boast that they got over 1200 hp. from 6TD-2

          Oh, the "Malyshevites" back in the 80s squeezed 1500 "horses" from this engine, though the resource suffered, and so, according to the site of the Malyshev plant, they are ready to supply 6TD-3, just 1500 ...
          And the fact that the TD engine is there is excellent in the video.

            I was convinced that the 6TD-3 did not go into mass production, and 1200 hp. with 6TD-2 were maximum. My mistake

            Ukraine, is you ready to supply something? Vague doubts plagued. Maybe ready, but the further, the less and less. The legacy of the "bloody communists" is not eternal. The Soviet resource, Ukraine has already worked out, but has not increased its own. A maximum of a couple of years and that's it. If I were Pakistan, I would be more serious about the choice of partners, especially in the military sphere. Well, okay, the Pakistani "warriors" know better, but let them not cry later.

              In this they are quite adequate ... Except that Muslims inside China are strongly pinched, and Muslim Pakistan turns a blind eye to it

              You can rest assured that Pakistan will not suffer much. China has proven that it has the ability to produce a 6TD series engine, they simply abandoned this, so as not to spoil relations with Ukraine, while with that that something else could be taken ... So there will be a replacement. And if they do not want to, they will transfer these tanks to the descendants of the Soviet B-2 ... Now the Uzbeks are changing the entire MTO for their T-64, installing quite a B-5 instead of 84TDF ...

                Actually, I don’t worry. We still have to worry a lot, for Pakistan, especially for Ukraine. If China is involved there, then it is clear who will "settle" everything.

    Where is without the Soviet legacy? And these tanks are essentially a deep modification, with the local "color" of the T72, T80 tanks!

      Look closely - both the shape of the hull and the turret. Where is the copy or deep modification of the T-80? These are completely different tanks. More like the suspension and wheels copied by the Chinese from the T-72.

          The use of the components that you are writing about does not yet give reason to assert that it is:
          These tanks are essentially a deep modification, with the local "color" of the T72, T80 tanks!

            Why? Borrowing from these models of tanks is clearly visible there ...
            And honestly, I have a BIG doubt that these tanks will be able to fight on equal terms with the Indian T-90S and especially the T-90-MS ... But practice will show

              the first versions of the T-44 are clearly seen borrowing from the T-34/85 a turret with a cannon, an engine and no one seriously says that it was
              essentially a deep modification, with the local "color" of the tank
              T-34/85.
              Similarly here - borrowing components from these models of tanks Obviously, the influence of the "Soviet school" of tank building on Chinese tanks is also undeniable, but such a formulation is an exaggeration

                Well, only for you ... and what is a "turret" for a tank gun, enlighten
                And one glance is enough to see how much the T-44 differs from the T-34, and if you climb inside ... so in general. The T-54 from the T-44 and the T-55 from the T-54, the latest modifications, cannot be immediately distinguished;

                  tower - I am writing with a translator and have not noticed the use of this form, actually not very good for a tank.

                  In fact, these are licensed versions of the Chinese tank, using elements and solutions known from the Soviet T-80UD tanks.

                    Using the solutions used in the Soviet T-72 tank, they even use it AZ, without a little doubt, not to mention the chassis
                    By the way, about the T-34/85 and T-44 towers
                    Here is the T-44 tank

                    And here it is, but with the "attached" turret from the T-34/85

                    Do you notice the difference visually?

            Can anyone really assume that Pakistan or China can come up with a new tank? -It's not even funny At best, they pushed with different models more or less successfully (because it is not a fact that the whole thing will be durable and efficiently work) they connected and everything Just everything, nothing more

    Nowadays, not the 40s, the decisive role in the conflicts of powerful holdings is not tanks but aircraft, but tanks for local conflicts.

    It is rather a global conflict and aviation will decide everything there. Nowadays, not 40s, tanks for local use are mainly used.

      Andrey, it will be the air defense that will decide - who has the "longer" air defense and the tanks will go further ... by the way, Pakistan, India, China have nuclear weapons ...
