Poles talked about the next modernization of Soviet T-72 tanks

At the international defense exhibition MSPO 2020 in the Polish city of Kielce, a modified T-72M1R tank was presented, which is in service with the 20th Mechanized Brigade of the Polish Armed Forces. The combat vehicle has undergone minor upgrades.


It is reported by the Polish edition of Defense 24.

The delivery of these machines to the troops began at the end of 2019, and by the end of 2025 there should be at least 230 of them, and a total of 318 needs to be improved. tanks... The upgraded T-72 will be required by the Polish Army before the commissioning of a new tank, codenamed "Wolf".

The modified equipment also entered the 19th Lublin Mechanized Brigade. The first eight tanks hit the troops in December last year.

The improvements made to the T-72M1R tank relate primarily to fire control and communication systems. Their goal was to increase the combat capabilities of equipment without significant financial investments. In addition, it was conceived to limit ourselves to minimal changes in the method of service, so that even the reservists would not have difficulties during operation.

The most noticeable difference, allowing you to visually determine that you are in front of a T-72M1R, was the lack of an infrared system on the modified tank, located to the right of the gun. It is no longer needed as short-range active night vision systems have been replaced by newer solutions. The tank commander and driver received new Polish-made night vision devices, and the gunner's seat is now equipped with a third-generation KLW-1 Asteria infrared camera. The same devices are used in the modernized Leopard 2PL tanks.

    The T-72 will still serve!
    If T-72s are still running in Africa, then how many decades will the T-XNUMX still be relevant.
    Well, psheki ...
    Technology was transferred to them.
    Taught on my own head ...

      Oh, and for a long time our tankers did not drink Polish beer and did not spoil Polish beauties. But everything goes to that. The former from the Russian tsarist colony whisper to their soft transmission.

            This opinion is wrong. And it went, most likely, after the lines of Pushkin. Maybe in the 17-18 centuries sleek polkas seemed to be painted by beauties, but ... I was in Poland, Germany, Hungary. Hungarians still did not go where, and the rest of Europeans, those who are prettier, probably from school, are taken to the cinema, on TV, on the podium. And there are few of them. It's hard to walk down the street of a Polish town and meet a BEAUTIFUL woman. Rarity.

              Maybe the fact is that after the occupation and impoverishment, all the beautiful ones left for the panel over the hill?

              The Inquisition has done well. Not only in Poland, but also in all Catholic countries. They are celibate, and priests looked at women, especially beautiful ones, only as witches. And our priests have always been womanizers and they welcomed beautiful women.

            ... a strange opinion ...
            Judging by the beauty contests, these are girls from the Philippines and
            Venezuela / Colombia IMHO. hi

              Especially Miss Finland 2017 touched me. Not only is she black, but also scary like my life.
              But Miss Finland 2018 is really good. This is understandable: her name is Alina Voronkova.

      The Soviet Union is gone for 30 years, but it still feeds half the world! Tomorrow, by the way, is our Tankman's Day! Therefore, with the coming!

    Let's better discuss "RUDY" (Red). Every day, news about the armored troops of Poland. We have already defeated them in the VO! Then only the English Channel. By the way, in my opinion, masochists are resting at the resorts on the English Channel. It's a cesspool. Cod. I threw overboard when I was caught with a fishing rod, she was all amazed.

    The improvements made to the T-72M1R tank relate primarily to fire control and communication systems.

    Most likely, this is the current modernization (but not as an epoch-making action) - while we can say that the Poles are not particularly willing to invest in the modernization process!

    It would be interesting to compare the Polish modernization with the T72B3M. In particular, worse / better new sights in relation to the Belarusian Sosna-U

    That's right - it's hard to find a beautiful polka walking down the street. If beautiful - she is already married and DRIVES by car.
