ZVO continues rearmament with upgraded T-80BVM tanks

The Western Military District continues to receive modernized Tanks T-80BVM. According to the press service of the district, another batch of tanks entered the Kantemirovsk division.


According to the report, 10 modernized T-80BVM tanks were transferred to tankers at the Alabino training ground in the Moscow region. It is emphasized that the division is completely ready for the operation of the modernized vehicles, since this is already the second batch of T-80BVM tanks that entered service. In total, today, taking into account the new tanks, the division has 20 modernized MBT T-80BVM. Most likely, a battalion set of modernized vehicles will be delivered to the division.

The command of the division noted that live firing of the crews of the modernized tanks will be held this week.

The T-80B tank and its modifications were produced at Omsktransmash JSC from 1979 to 1991 a year. The latest modification was the T-80BV tank, adopted by the Soviet army in the 1985 year. MBT T-80BVM - a new version of the modernization of the tank, developed in Omsk.

The tank is equipped with a modified 1250 hp gas turbine engine, which can reach speeds of up to 70 km / h. The vehicle is equipped with a 125-mm cannon capable of firing guided missiles, a multi-channel sight, a weapon stabilizer, and a driver's observation device. The tank is protected from fire by a complex of modular reactive armor.

In Soviet times, more than 10 of thousands of T-80 tanks of various modifications were produced. Currently, 3 thousand "eighty", which are considered a strategic reserve in case of war, is located in military warehouses. The decision to de-arm part of the tanks and modernize it was taken by the Ministry of Defense in 2016.

      And especially considering that the Russian Federation intends to further strengthen its Arctic borders, then such a tank with a power gas turbine engine, from the "reserve" in storage, will be very yes

          What prevents you from thinking more broadly, not focusing only on the information from the article about the receipt of the T-80BVM by the Kantemirovites?
          Currently in army warehouses there is 3 thousand "eighties"which are considered a strategic reserve in case of war

      I love hodgepodge, but not this "hodgepodge". They removed the tongue and how many types of tanks they have at the moment. Armata by any chance in their pre-production operation? hi

      I remember that in the 80s a battalion of new tanks was brought to us from Nizhny Tagil on one flight. There was a time! laughing

    The very first fact of the combat use of T-80 tanks took place during the October events in Moscow in 1993. On the morning of October 4, 1993, six T-80UD tanks of the 12th Guards Tank Regiment of the 4th Guards Kantemirovskaya Tank Division moved to the Kalininsky Bridge opposite the "White House" - the building of the Supreme Soviet of the Russian Federation. At about 12 noon, the tanks opened fire. So they deservedly got the new T-80BVM.

      Yeah, merit so merit fellow - crush your own citizens with caterpillars and shoot them with cannons. That's a reason to be proud negative If then the commander decided not to carry out the criminal order and stand up for the defense of the Supreme Soviet, then today we would live in a completely different country, without the nullified Wrotenbergs, Chubais and Grefs.

        If only mushrooms would grow in my mouth.
        Where did you get the idea that there would be no nullified, Wrotenberg, Chubais and Grefs? They would just have different surnames.

    And did the T-80U do little or did they get the limitrophes during the division of the Soviet inheritance? Everywhere some BV-ex are mentioned.

      There is one point. For tank power plants with a gas turbine engine, the minimum cold start temperature is determined, first of all, by the temperature of the electrolyte of the storage batteries. If the temperature does not drop below -30 ° C, the currently used tank batteries can be located directly in the tank. At lower temperatures it is necessary to install so-called "warm" batteries.
      Duplicate energy sources for launching tank gas turbine engines are not provided. Installing an autonomous power unit on a tank does not solve this problem. For tanks with diesel engines, a tug launch is sometimes used as an emergency aid. It is impossible to launch a tank GTE by towing a combat vehicle.

        I have never seen a diesel tank started with a tugboat! laughing Have you tried it with air? laughing

          In training, it happened that the tank was not jammed, because then it could only be started from the tug. It starts up quite normally. It takes literally three tracks to pull the tank from its place and the engine starts to work.

          Have you tried it with air?
          I came across T-55, which did not have its own compressor, and in order to have a supply of air, it was necessary to bring an air cylinder and connect it to the system. All T-62s have compressors, so there is no such problem. Somehow he drove the tank to the landfill, so there were no batteries at all, but there was air. The air supply solenoid valve for starting the engine is located on the left on the wall, next to the driver's seat, it can also be pressed manually - it is not correct, of course, to start the engine without raising the oil pressure, but when there are no options, it starts like that.

            Even with very dead batteries, you should first turn on the MZN! This is about the launch of the T-62. Well, if there is no battery at all, then of course. Although I have not seen this in the troops. I don't remember the T-55 anymore, but, in theory, there are no big differences from the T-62, there should be a compressor. And on the T-72 in general, everything is simple - press "emergency launch", and you will be happy! laughing There, and the "remnants" of the battery will help, and the air. And no tug laughing I was also in training, however, on the T-80, that's where they really were afraid that at -40 the batteries would die, and then they wouldn't start. In severe cold weather, the training group was not jammed all night. And one was driven into a VET with a booty and warmed laughing

              I basically started the T-62 like that: I raised the pressure above 4 and press both the air and the starter. I even started it underwater when I gave up underwater driving (my engine stalled twice). The first time on command from the shore started, the second at the same. The depth was good (the air intake pipe protruded from the water less than a meter)

                Cool! drinks Many are lost, kapets. In my experience, after getting out of the water, a mech.water (a very young Georgian) drove into the stern of the tank in front laughing On the T-62, I remember, the air tap is on the left, and the "starter" button is in front on the right. They did everything right on the T-72 - everything in one place. True, they put them under "protection" so that they would not reap every day laughing

                  On the T-62, they are the same in one place: an electric starter with one button, to the right of it a rotary toggle switch, which, when turned 90 degrees, turns on the meat pump, and if it is turned further, air is supplied to start the engine (air is considered the main method of starting) ... The very same air solenoid valve is located on the left on the wall, which allows, if there is no electricity, turn it on manually (a lever on top of the valve)

    The main plus of the GTE with the minuses is 100% start-up and quick readiness to move.

    Yes, everything is simpler: the T-72, suitable for budget modernization, are over. And the T-80s still remain.
