Light tank "Sprut-SDM1" interested in the Middle East

Russian light floating a tank Sprut-SDM1 has become interested in the Middle East. According to the chief designer of the Special Design Bureau of Mechanical Engineering (SKBM, part of the Kurganmashzavod structure of the Rostec state corporation) Sergei Abdulov, one of the countries in the region has already submitted an application for the purchase of the tank.


According to Abdulov, one of the countries of the Middle East is a potential customer of the Sprut-SDM1 light tank; it has already submitted an application. Several other countries are expressing interest in the tank, but the matter has not yet reached a substantive discussion. Which country wants to buy Sprut-SDM1 is not reported.

So far, one of the countries of the Middle East is showing substantive interest, but work is being done in several regions.

- he said.

Recall that on August 21 this year, the press service of Rostec announced the start of state tests of a new light amphibious tank Sprut-SDM1, which will last a year and a half. At the end of the tests, the vehicle will be recommended for adoption by the Russian army.

The Russian combat vehicle Sprut-SDM1 "is armed with a 125-mm cannon, a 7,62-mm machine gun paired with it and a 7,62-mm machine gun mounted on a remote-controlled module. destroying enemy strongpoints and defensive structures, conducting military reconnaissance and outposts.

      The tank does not differ in either weapon or armor. This is not a tank or an SPG, but rather just an assault support vehicle that can be used as a support tank and SPG. If it is like a tank in mountainous terrain or where there are forests, shooting from ambushes, shelters is his element.

          Remember, it's better to have a light tank here and now than the main tank somewhere out there. This is a mobile cannon, 125 mm, which will not seem like a little if it hits.

            If! Stupidly a cannon for a motorcycle league (as on carnations-acacias, which cost a penny, because there is no complex MSA, stabilizers and other nishtyaks.) - this is still understandable. But to fence something on the base of the Shell, which is not cheap even once ... Do you want a light tank? So even the Papuans now have RPGs and mortars and just large-caliber machine guns in their hands. Or, so that if you really feel sorry for the machine, not let it out on the battlefield?

              And who told you that the Octopus will approach the Papuans at the RPG range? Octopus will hit firing points from a distance of 2 km, for this it is intended, the maximum is suitable for a kilometer. Let me tell you a secret, in Vietnam, as it turned out, PT76 were effective, since sometimes a striking charge simply pierced the armor without hitting either the crew or ammunition, and the conditions were unsuitable for heavy equipment. Armor, even light armor, did not interfere with anyone, and speed and maneuverability are the best means against enemy shells.
              I see you liked the word "motorcycling". By the way, there is a howitzer on Acacia, and a cannon on the Octopus, Acacia is heavier, lower mobility.

                By the way, if there were then a carnation with acacia, they would have been in Vietnam! And 76 got there precisely because of its buoyancy and lightness - speed in the jungle is not needed (and they often carried it out of the mud on their hands! All that - = BMP-1 weight) And the fact that the tank is now, as soon as its exit to position is detected -there is covered with mines, we have already seen and felt this! Firstly, the infantry is cut off, and secondly, all the husks from the armor are demolished. And it's good if you have counter-battery goodies - in 14 they were not with us, or with non-brothers. Who fired from, from where, until the reconnaissance is lost, until their gunners wake up, you already have a bunch of 300, and you change the triplex, it's good that the outer optics of the sights were not beaten. Outside tanks, zips, everything is in dust! And if the hatches were also open, hello concussion. With PLYWOOD, everything is different! Almost everything is bulletproof, it is already on fire, There is a stench of burnt rubber, oil and shish kebab. !

                  Have you tried to see what tactics NATO countries use in breaking through their defenses? By the way, the landing should not carry out the task of breaking through the defense in depth, in this case the landing has little chance of surviving. And if the Octopus is used in the mountains, forests, then it will be there in its element. What you have described testifies only to one thing: if the defense is strong, no tanks can do anything, and here nothing matters, neither the armor nor the control system.

                    Well, if you develop the idea further, then for the barmaleev, that's the thing! They are also glad to the carts on the pickup trucks with quadruple checkpoints! Yes, and our anti-aircraft guns and rapiers are screwed onto trucks. So they fight. There is no place for a tank in the mountains. My Afghan battalion commander painted. For this, BMP3-4 is made. And I repeat, no octopus has that mass, transmission and chassis that will reliably withstand our gun

      it also says "Sprut-SDM1 combat vehicle" more precisely, an airborne self-propelled anti-tank gun, designed for airborne landing. Or will the T-90 be easier to drop? Plus multitasking
      The vehicle is designed for fire support of subunits, fighting armored vehicles, destroying enemy strongpoints and defensive structures, conducting military reconnaissance and outposts.
      so it's a light all-round unit. And it doesn't matter if it's an SPG or a light tank. The point is not in the name, but in the purpose.

          I will reveal a secret, from non-brothers in Malyshev and warehouses of the Kramatorsk type, both before the war and now, mountains of armored hulls, towers, guns and engines. Stacks with bandaging! There is no money for the restoration of the filling, sights, electronics, electrics, etc. That is exactly the FILLING, and there is the main part of the cost of the tank!

    Well, now the interested parties have appeared, the arms market is not held only by the Indians. The fact that a tank can cross a water barrier on the move and immediately engage in battle is worth a lot. The Euphrates River is wide, but it must be forced ...
    And it is more convenient for him to run on the sands - the weight is small, the thrust-to-weight ratio is high.

    Where he is there (on the BV) will swim, it is not clear. But if a special export version is made for them, removing water cannons and by saving weight, adding something else (active armor, launcher or something else) or simply increasing the speed (power reserve) and cross-country ability on sandy soils, then it is very high-tech.

    Plywood armor is not related! So we called the crews of the BMP. If, when firing from a spot, the T-80 jumps back 3 rinks, and woe to the gunner who did not rest his forehead on the fingal sight, or even dissection of the eyelids even through the eyecup. And here, a beer can with a cannon, all hope for the armor, so that the ribs are not broken! We didn't even have armored vehicles. And how does electronics withstand such blows in the Octopus? Reblock after each shot of AZRs with gas stations?

        Against the "shahid-mobiles" and "carts" you need an AUTOMATIC cannon with a caliber of 25-30mm - to shoot at moving targets like a machine gun in bursts, and not with SINGLE BOPS, which only make a "hole" from the "scrap" in the case (at the exhibition " trophies "from Syria showed photographs with such holes, there is a hit, but the target is" not killed "). Say - "... we will shoot the OFSs ..." - so on the "cart" that still needs to be hit on the move ... I can offer an BTR-90 with a 30mm cannon and on wheels, and it will be able to swim across the river.

    I always thought that the fundamental difference between a tank and an SPG is that the tank turns the turret, while the SPG does not have this option. Judging by some features, "Sprut-SDM1" is a tank with a turret. Why are some of them enrolled in the ACS? Is his tower motionless or what?

      well, that means you were thinking wrong ... the Americans already had SPGs with a rotating turret in World War II ... for example, the 76mm GMC M18 Hellcat and others ...

    Just in the sands of the Middle East, a floating light tank is the most it. Although maybe they were going to storm the seas on it))
