The Ministry of Defense signed a new contract for the modernization of T-80BV tanks

The Russian Defense Ministry signed a new contract with the Uralvagonzavod concern for the repair and modernization of more than 50 tanks T-80BV. This was reported by the press service of the Omsktransmash enterprise, which is part of UVZ.


The contract was signed within the framework of the Army-2020 forum and provides for the repair and modernization of T-80BV tanks to bring them up to the level of T-80BVM. Under the terms of the agreement, the company must modernize more than 50 T-80BV tanks, the timing of the contract has not been announced.

Within the framework of the VI International Military-Technical Forum "Army-2020", a contract was signed between JSC "Concern" Uralvagonzavod "(part of the State Corporation" Rostec ") and the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation

- said in a statement.

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 machine, which has undergone a thorough modernization, is equipped with an 125-mm gun, which has the ability to fire guided missiles, a multi-channel sight, a modified gas turbine engine with 1250 horsepower, an arms stabilizer and a driver’s observation device. The tank is protected from fire by a complex of modular dynamic protection and an anti-cumulative lattice screen.

In Soviet times, more than 10 thousand T-80 tanks of various modifications were produced.

    So Armata will have to wait ... operating and modernizing Soviet tanks is much cheaper and more economical than producing a new vehicle.

      The T-80BVM tank should be equipped with a GTD-1250Т gas turbine engine capable of developing power up to 1250 hp. It is expected that the use of the new engine will allow to a certain extent to improve the driving characteristics and mobility of the car in all landscapes. It does not require serious processing of the engine compartment, which could be needed to install a diesel engine. The proposed power plant allows you to reach speeds of up to 70 km / h and have a power reserve of 500 km.

      The armored body of the car in the new project does not change, but receives additional protection. The whole frontal projection and a significant part of the hull and turret sides are equipped with the Relict dynamic protection modules. The hull food, which cannot be covered with such products, is additionally protected with lattice screens. Installing a new dynamic protection in a noticeable way changed the appearance of the tank, giving it some similarity with modern versions of the T-72 and T-90 machines. According to some sources, the tank can be equipped with the Arena active defense system, but reliable information on the plans of the Ministry of Defense to install such equipment is not yet available.

      The most serious changes have been made to the composition of the weapons complex. The tank is still equipped with a 125-mm 2A46M1 launcher and NSVT and PKT machine guns, but new means are now used to control the weapon. The Sosna-U fire control system was used, which includes the commander's and gunner's sights with day and night channels, as well as a laser rangefinder. Thus, in terms of weapons control, the T-80BVM tank is unified with another modern combat vehicle of the Russian army - the T-72B3

        Let me tell you a secret, I served on a T-80B with a 1250 hp engine in ... 83-85! And the gun is the same, and the stabilizer is the same! Well, maybe the GTNs were removed. And so she is!

      why such thoughts? 80 go only to the north and the marines. well, plus Kantemirovskaya. t 14 tests passes.

        But this is the dumbest idea - to send eighty to the north. On the verge of sabotage! She has a start-up-only electric-when seated in the cold battery-mashia-corpse.

          they have a second engine for a long time. I served on them since college and we had no problems with launches. do not write nonsense.

            Yes, it is, but winter in the north is more than half a year, and will the ENGINE thresh all the time? Or remove the battery for storage-in the battery? Or a tank in a warm box? And if 4 batteries are defrosted, then you won't get it from snot! But in the GSVG at 85 in the winter, just so it was DAVONULO -30 in January, and half of the cars in the emergency area on alarm, someone on ties, someone started up from snot. So that's 30! And at 50, all this will start from some former BMP or an old T-10. For OOOOOO very long time.

              all this is treated by a competent organization, taking into account the place of service of the equipment. warm boxes and battery service are very easy to set up. and gives an advantage in operational deployment and cover, since 80 parks will be abandoned almost instantly in comparison with diesel engines. and this is very important for MP and BO. I studied in Blagoe. minus 30 there is not minus 30 in Germany, believe me) humidity is different and it affects. I do not remember a case that at least once our cars stopped for this reason. there was everything. and burned the turbines and flew away to the forest. but it was not. in 4 years

      In terms of operating costs, in the case of the T-80, they were probably the highest among Soviet tanks. However, the decision to upgrade is absolutely correct. This is a very good tank, and thanks to the modernization it is still modern, with specific properties, very useful as well. in the Arctic.

        Don't shit ... those! Eighty operation is the most hassle-free! Proven by my own experience.

          Nie napisałem, że eksploatacja tego czołgu była problematyczna, tylko, że była kosztowna- o wiele więcej niż w przypadku T-64 czy T-72 o ile dobrze pamiętam tabele zamiesz andczane.com

            I did not write about the problems of operating this tank, but about the fact that it was expensive - much more than in the case of the T-64 or T-72, if I remember correctly the tables posted on the blog andrei-bt.livejournal. com

              Yes, let it be at least GOLD, that operation, the main thing is that it is PROBLEMLESS! And not like on the 72 and 64-MTO cover on ALL machines screwed with 2 bolts. Otherwise, you will freeze to dive there every time you send.

      Armata fittings, modernization modernization. Two different things.

    Soviet stocks of T-80 and 72, without war, will last for 10 years. The cannon could only be changed to 2a82.

      So it was planned in the USSR when creating the 2A82 gun. She wanted to upgrade the T72 / 80 in the future.

    So, we still have three tanks at the same time in service. Or even four. With varying degrees of modernization and unification. In my opinion, a person who is far from armored forces, but who has some life experience associated with military and other service to the fatherland, this approach is unacceptable within the framework of real state realities. If we talk about the fact that it happened historically under the USSR, then it is probably worth understanding that that country, firstly, could afford this variety for some time, and secondly, it was in a constant process of additional selection among the available samples and the design of new promising models based on the data obtained from the operation available. As for the current situation, I see only one option for changing the situation. Namely, the rejection of the type of modernization of armored vehicles that is taking place now. It is necessary to have one MBT sample, in different modifications, for different climatic zones, taking into account the possible theater of operations. I do not know how quickly and in what quantities the Armata platform will be adopted and delivered to the troops, but the possibility of upgrading t 80 and t 72 to the characteristics of t 90 m probably makes sense, with the maximum possible unification of all equipment and weapons systems, but having the ability to preserve the best qualities of each model as above.

    modern MBT simply MUST have a KAZ. for some reason in the Ministry of Defense they cannot understand this in any way ... or do not want to, maybe. the life of tankers is obviously worth a penny in comparison with the cost of KAZ .... I'm generally silent about the unification of the T-80 and T-72/90 of any MODs.
    2A-46M1 needs to be brought to the level of probably already M3 or M4 because we have already seen the "accuracy" of this weapon .. or let the stub be finalized so that it does not tremble.
    hmm, but ARMATA seems to remain a ceremonial tank wassat
