BMP T-15 "Armata" in the American press called a force to be reckoned with

39

The new Russian T-15 Armata infantry fighting vehicle is better suited for military operations in the Middle East and Europe, as well as for the survival of the crew and troops, than similar equipment produced in the US and NATO countries. Therefore, it deserves no less attention than the T-14 tank.


Peter Suciu writes about this in an article published by the American edition of the National Interest.

The expert believes that the new BMP can play a significant role in equipping the modern Russian army. He believes that this is no less valuable acquisition for our Armed Forces than its "relative" - ​​the T-14 tank.

The main task of the heavy BMP T-15 is the transportation of personnel, because it can accommodate nine troops and three crew members. But at the same time, it cannot be compared with other infantry fighting vehicles. Rather, it is something between the BMP and the armored personnel carrier.

NATO does not have a single BMP comparable to this Russian vehicle. Probably, its analogue can to some extent be called the new Israeli heavy tank "Merkava", which is also capable of transporting personnel.

In other words, the T-15 is a BMP equipped with heavier weapons. It weighs 48 tons, that is, it is heavier than any Russian tank, except for the T-14. Actually, it should be so, because these two models of armored vehicles are created on the basis of a single tracked platform.

BMP T-15 "Armata" is armed with an automatic cannon 2A42 Shipunov caliber 30 mm, two twin launchers ATGM "Kornet", and a PKMT machine gun of 7,62 mm. The combat vehicle can use homing missiles to destroy systems of dynamic armor and active defense of the enemy, operating at a distance of 150 meters to 10 kilometers.

According to the expert, the new Russian BMP is a formidable force to be reckoned with.

      I'm already tired of writing that the Merkava does not carry l / s. The troop compartment is intended for the crew and can be used to evacuate other tankers and transport 3 infantrymen several hundred meters. All.

        The analogue is not the Merkava, but most likely Namer (which, after all, was developed on the basis of the Merkava). National Interest as always in its own style

          To me. I'm not joking. Where can the listed things be placed here?

          I'm not even saying that those who are there are terribly shaking and the movement of people in this compartment is possible only a few hundred meters.

    It's just a mania to look for laudatory articles about yourself in the foreign press and to admire yourself by reading them. Where is this formidable force in the form of the T-14 and T-15? If someone else says something about the T-14, about the T-15 in general except for this expert, no one remembers the last time.

    The BMP T-15 "Armata" will become a force to be reckoned with when there is serial production and it enters the troops. In the meantime, this force can be restrained on paper, by playing tanks: for this game you need to take one sheet of paper in a box and two pens, preferably of different colors. Bend the leaf in the middle, and each player needs to draw tanks in his half. Tanks can be any, even BMP T-15 "Armata".

      Earlier, some media outlets, citing the Ministry of Defense, reported that the military department signed a contract for the supply of two battalions of T-14 tanks and a battalion of BMP T-15 for military tests.


      UVZ started serial production of the T-15 BMP. Modified according to the comments of the T-14 at the stage of readiness for the series, they are only waiting for the go-ahead. These are already their sources. So return the polymers where you took them.

    NATO does not have a single BMP comparable to this Russian vehicle.

    How many of these machines do we have? If not, when will they be?
    And so, there is nothing special to consider.

    The problem of equipping the ground forces with a heavy infantry fighting vehicle, not only has matured, but has long been overripe, and the need for it, probably, is even much greater than in a new tank (in my opinion). winked

    If you look soberly, the T15 is much more needed in the troops than the T14. Tanks like T 90 and T 72B3 are quite combat-ready. But the booking of any infantry carriers is frankly weak. With a deficit of finance, it would be logical to start deliveries to the troops from Boomerangs, Kurgansev and T 15.

    When she enters the troops, it is unknown.

      You will be surprised, but they have been in the troops for a long time, just while they were there to "touch" and modify. The modified T-14 and T-15 are already at the plant, the first serial ones are ready, the transport logistics have been debugged. Nothing interferes with unloading the first echelon, UVZ is waiting for the whistle. How much and where to supply - the prerogative of the headquarters of the Ministry of Defense.

        And, in fact, no more than 20, t14 and t15 were manufactured for testing, which is still happening.
        The RF Ministry of Defense did not sign a contract for t14 and t15.

    PKMT 7,62mm on such equipment (T-14, any other tank) should be replaced with AGS (you can even AGS-40 Balkan) - against "manpower without armor", better with shrapnel, without a direct hit.
    AGS-40 Balkan
    Here is AGS-40 Balkan for clarity. You can even try to make it removable (like a DT machine gun) - it took ... removed the Balkan, put it on the machine (lying somewhere in the T-14) and you can shoot outside the T-14, why? - there will simply be such an opportunity.
