Argentine journalists were impressed by the underwater driving of Russian T-72B3 tanks

Exercises held in the Orenburg region, during which tankers worked out underwater driving tanks T-72B3, "impressed and shocked" the journalists of the Argentine publication Clarin. The video was posted on the YouTube channel of the Russian Ministry of Defense.


Reportedly, the staff of the Argentine publication drew attention to the video of the Russian military department with footage of underwater driving of T-72BZ tanks during the exercises of the Central Military District, held this month. An explanation to the video says that the tankers overcame a water barrier up to 5 meters deep. These shots impressed and shocked Argentine journalists.

It's amazing how a battle tank manages to completely disappear under water and then reappear on the opposite bank to continue its mission as if nothing had happened to it. This "shocking video" of the Russian Defense Ministry is "simply impressive."

- said the Argentines, calling the Russian T-72B3 tank "unprecedented lethal weapons".


At the same time, they compared the Russian tank to a submarine capable of performing combat missions on land.

Also, the authors of the article in the Argentine edition drew attention to the fact that under water the driver is guided only by instruments and commands from the shore, since "nothing is visible at the bottom." Air supply to the tank is provided by a special air duct installed on the tank turret.

    Now I understand why the Argentines lost in the Falkleno-Malvinas war ... If their ordinary exercise is shocking ...

      Then they fought with dignity.
      And then there are journalists.
      Nothing really shocks them.

        I studied this conflict well in my time. If anything, then in my heart I was on the side of the Argentines.
        I frankly regretted that half of the old bombs did not explode, and so on ...

    Argentina has a poorly armed army, inferior to Chile and even Peru

      Exactly! One - by the amount of drugs eaten, and the second by amazing greed at the conclusion of each new (annual) contract with Barsa!

        The amount of drugs did not prevent Diego from practically single-handedly dragging Argentina to the World Cup finals and winning titles. If it helps our Buratins, let them eat. They eat. But it doesn't help.
        PS Maradona is the God of football. I've seen him play.

    If they are just journalists, they have never seen anything like this !!! then it's understandable, it's impressive.
    But military journalists should have seen this, because it is practiced in many places, in different ways, but something like that.

    So, on the basis of someone's positive commentary on the video about T72 on YouTube, there are already articles on VO doing?
    Super cool experts, these "Argentine" YouTube rangers.)

    Somehow Argentine journalists were late with such enthusiasm. Godkov is somewhere like that at 79.
    The first COMBAT use of tanks with devices for underwater driving was on June 22, 1941, when German Pz.IIIs crossed the Western Bug along the bottom in the Brest region.

    In Hungary, I drove a T-62 under water, but there really was 5 meters (there was the end of the air intake pipe above the water), and according to the film the tower disappeared from the tank, and that's it. The film was not impressed.

    Judging by the text, the article was written by an Argentine with a non-traditional sexual-democratic orientation. A normal soldier would take this video quite calmly. Maybe I would have praised the training of our "mazutniki", but certainly not in such epithets.
    I noticed for a long time that VO is sliding more and more towards OK. What kind of yellow nonsense they will not post, for the sake of seething hmmm and activating hamsters ...
    However, this is natural. Over time, any car gradually turns into an Opel.

    "Argentine journalists" is the criterion.
