Going for conservation? Vietnam creates storage facilities for T-90 tanks

25

The Institute of Chemical Materials of the Ministry of National Defense of Vietnam is currently conducting research on the development of a sealed "bag" for storing major military tanks T-90S / SK.


As indicated by the VietDefense publication, it is necessary for the conservation of these machines, the deliveries of which have recently ended from Russia. According to the author, the basic technologies are already available thanks to the cooperation with Havana. Contacts with her made it possible to obtain equipment for the conservation of Cuban military equipment, which was first used by the 147th Marine Brigade of the Vietnamese Army.
After revision, the storage system will be transferred to the 201st Tank Brigade, the main operator of the T-90.

In total, Vietnam ordered 2016 T-64s in 90, the transfer of which was completed in 2019. Apparently, they are designed to partially replace the Chinese Type 59 tanks and Soviet T-54 tanks. Being the most modern MBT models in the Vietnamese army, T-90s are constantly featured in news in the local press, being a kind of pride of the nation.

It is possible that the Vietnamese military decided to mothball the bulk of the vehicles, leaving several units in operation for training. In general, this is consistent with the special thrift that Hanoi shows to military products: be it American wartime rifles or the PPSh transferred by the Soviet Union.

    The Vietnamese are very careful about weapons. I saw pictures of their equipment (Soviet and Russian combat aircraft .... hangars), as if only from an assembly line. Well done. You will not say anything.

        Tanks are not afraid of mud wassat
        They knocked out the French with their weapons, bitterly upset the Americans and beat the Maoists in the horn. Three nuclear powers among other things. They stopped the spread of the PRC in the APR. Although the PRC and the empire that captured the backward Tibet, and Stalin gave them Uyguria and Manchuria, the Vietnamese showed that it was worth a penny. And all this in the second half of the 20th century. Therefore, the price of weapons is known, weapons are treated with awe. The climate is extremely aggressive, and therefore it is necessary to protect equipment from high humidity.

                  Hydrogen will be pumped into the bag and the whole business. We have many generators at CHP plants filled with hydrogen so that there is no moisture inside.

              Most likely not, inert gas injection will be more useful.
              1. When pumping out, the bag will wrap around the surface of the tank and "crawl" over it during pumping. And there are corners, burrs ..... They will cut the bag, definitely.
              2. Air itself is not dangerous, a little oxygen, but moisture - yes.
              3. It is convenient to control the tightness. The bag is opal or not.
              I think pressurization with any inert gas, even helium. repeat

                Easier with the same dry air, well, nitrogen. Even though the air is almost 80% nitrogen. We have no task to blow up a tank with hydrogen from the slightest static spark of a synthetic bag. Well, helium requires a lot of problems, especially the price. Probably ignite the air ...

          Without the help of the USSR and China, Vietnam could only show dirty cowards. And the Sino-Vietnamese conflict showed that the Chinese are enemies of the local population. Thousands of Vietnamese Chinese were saboteurs, they created partisan detachments, etc. And here the Chinese are invited to visit, it seems they will soon be called.

            Let's put it another way, they say, without the USSR, China could only provide
            dirty panties
            ... And help from them was like milk from a goat. And without the USSR, the Chinese would not have
            dirty panties
            , but according to the Japanese method - sticks in the nose ... There has already gone subordination of the PRC to the west ... Not the point. There was a period when Chinatown markets began to appear in all cities of the Russian Federation with the capital in Cherkizon, and there were millions of them in Russia. But a tough struggle began with this phenomenon, the receiving-distributors worked for wear and tear. The situation was reversed. Now the Chinese in the Russian Federation reached 200 thousand or more, but this is taking into account the tourists, because some of them got rich and dispersed. There are even fewer permanent residents of the Russian Federation, about 40 thousand. Now, due to quarantine, there is a sharp drop in tourists. This is an interesting and effective experience in combating illegal migration that went unnoticed. Or rather not consciously, everyone noticed the fall of Cherkizon. By the way, their elite climbed to intervene on this matter, including Mr. HuJintao. Millions of Chinese have lost their jobs here and tens of millions there. And they piled home. The PRC had an economic upsurge and expansion of production, so the PRC suffered it painlessly. Now, if this happened now, then the country claiming to be the first economy would be swayed, like a sprat reversal of the Balts. Now, under 10 million, Hong Kong has begun to shake the entire PRC, and the joy of its return may be premature. The contagious infection of liberalism and is concentrated in large numbers.

              When we carried out the supply of weapons by railway, the Chinese brazenly removed our brand new cannon-tanks, and in return, on the platforms, they put broken and dead systems. Therefore, supplies went by sea, with risks for ships and crews.

      It's time to return to the Vietnamese Cam Ranh. Let's go back - and there it is like in 1991.

    The climate in Vietnam with 100 percent humidity and military equipment inevitably requires rescue from high humidity ... so the actions of the Vietnamese are logical and understandable.

      Are they having a war right now?
      It seems not.
      Part of the equipment for training, the rest in reserve, just in case.
      And so that before this incident does not rot, as we do, we have to make efforts.

    The Vietnamese invent the "tank storage bag". Others simply "store in two layers" ...
    armored vehicles in storage
    equipment in storage 2
    If there is enough space, then they put it "in one layer" ...
    equipment in storage 3
    equipment in storage 4
    equipment in storage 5
    There are many such photos. Just before the Second World War, the USSR also had a lot of equipment in storage, the crews were trained on models and in "theory". It's not a bad thing to store equipment - only the crews should be prepared and not far from the storage bases, or are the tanks stored right in the unit? Can you send "old equipment" for storage?
