"A clear resemblance to the" Armata ": the network is discussing a new tank of the DPRK army

83

The military parade in the DPRK capital, Pyongyang, has attracted increased attention from military experts and ordinary people with an interest in military topics. Moreover, they pay attention to the parade held by Kim Jong-un in both Asian and Western media. The parade was dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the country's ruling party.


The Defense Blog draws attention to the passage through the central square of Pyongyang new tanks... The author writes that “North Korea showed the latest tanks - its own version of the Russian Armata tanks.

According to the author of the publication, “the newest North Korean main battle tanks are outwardly very similar to the Russian T-14 Armata.



From the material:

The photographs show a clear similarity between the North Korean MBT and the Russian-made Armata. Outwardly, the image of a Russian tank is repeated, which has repeatedly appeared at military parades in Moscow.

When discussing the layout of the tank, experts note that its turret is not uninhabited.

During the parade in Pyongyang, it was reported that the new main battle tank received improved reactive armor, anti-tank missile system. Some experts note the KAZ (active protection complex) of the North Korean tank.

And this is from publications in the DPRK media:

Military equipment and the solemn ceremony that marched across Kim Il Sung Square showed how our country has increased its military power a thousandfold under the banner of self-defense and admiration for the great party, how we ensure the sovereignty and dignity of the state and nation for the prosperity of the current generation and the happiness of descendants.

Also, an intercontinental ballistic missile, which is called one of the largest in the world, was transported across the Kim Il Sung square. An 11-axle tractor was used for it.

    The tank, I would say, looks more like an Abrams turret. From Armata there the shape of the frontal projection of the hull is visible.
    The ICBM is much more interesting.

      Yes, this is something new, more advanced in Kim's arsenal. If not a dummy, of course.
      They write that this is "Hwaseong-15" and that the radius of action also captures the United States. But it seems that we are talking only about Alaska.
      One way or another, this is a more interesting mobile novelty than the Korean "Armata".

        "Hwaseong / Mars-15" on a 9-axle conveyor, radius up to 13000 km. On the 11-axis, the new ICBM at the head of which, according to the expert on nuclear programs Vladimir Khrustalev, can house either a thermonuclear charge of several megatons and decoys or several nuclear units of lower power.

        Exactly! We all have similar associations wink also seemed like both Abrams and a little like Armatu.

        Yes, the tower is inhabited, and this radically changes the matter when compared with the Russian model.

        But let's remember the world of cars.
        Abs-plastic "kits" reign there, giving the cheap bucket the look of a futuristic starship fellow

        So I think that technologically there is no breakthrough in principle, but the appearance has been tightened up!
        Indeed, in modern hybrid wars, the picture sometimes fights more than the technology itself ...

      Not only the turret, but the color and contours of the hull, only the MTO still seems to have a "Soviet type" with a diesel engine of the "B" family, but this tank is not at all similar to the "Armata", both externally and conceptually
      But that's not all, there are plenty of other new, first-shown models of military equipment.
      To be honest, the parade impressed with the form of presentation, it is in the dark with artificial lighting and a swing. And how they changed their army into a completely modern form and the abundance of different options for modernizing our BTR-80, plus new self-propelled guns ...
      Yes, really ... impressed

    Well, of course "Armata", one to one. And also a dozen other modern tanks.
    Although, for the sake of fairness, the placement of some elements from the bottom to the sides of the tower is really reminiscent.

        Here it is, the main word - "filling". And the appearance ... Yes, a bunch of factors - from fashion and "world trends" to finding the optimal form. The same cars you take. "Banana" - he is "banana" (in the early 80s in the magazine "Young Technician" it was said that the most aerodynamically optimal shape for a car - "banana" "hump" up).

      Themselves. We bought 8 8-axle timber tractors in China. Then China banned their sale. We made a 9-axle conveyor ourselves, lengthening the base. Hwaseong (Mars) -15 with a range of 13000 km is placed on such transporters. For the even heavier ICBM shown at the parade, an 11-axle carrier was assembled - at least 4 pieces.

    "his tower is hardly uninhabited." - Excellent experts! Simply ingenious! The photo clearly shows the tankers in the turret hatches. Of course the tower is uninhabited! These are robots, damn it! laughing
    And what do they have in common with "Armata"? It looks like an abram, especially a tower.

      Analyzing the articles of modern experts, I note that most likely their tower is uninhabited.
      The photographs show a clear resemblance to the Romanian "Clownade". Outwardly, the image of Romanian clowns is repeated, who have repeatedly appeared in the arenas of the tent and city squares.

    Footage of the military parade in the DPRK:

    I am always amazed at the clarity of the DPRK and PRC parades. It's just hard to believe that these are human beings, not robots. True, they have a big advantage - you don't need to select them by rank. Everything is as if from under the stamp. And I am also surprised that the US has sharply "cooled" towards the DPRK. Their ASU stopped hanging out with Trump's threats - "to inflict a crushing blow on the DPRK, which the world has not yet seen."

    It is possible that the tank is generally medium or light.

They use T-80 tanks, BMP-3 and Ka-27 helicopters, build S-350 air defense systems under our license, their new operational-tactical and cruise missiles are suspiciously similar to Iskander and RK-55, I will simply keep silent about economic cooperation.

      "Koreans have chosen their own path - and this path is not the herd of consumption and the deification of money." - This path was chosen not by ordinary North Koreans, but by the Supreme Leader of the DPRK, the leader of the party, army and people, New Star, "Genius among geniuses" in military strategy, Brilliant Comrade Kim Jong-un. But in general, the North Koreans are the same people, like everyone else, and, as they say, love dollars very much. The top leader cares very much about the well-being of his citizens, therefore the authorities (for a moderate bribe) allow underground entrepreneurship (such as workshop workers in the USSR), lease of enterprises to labor collectives (in fact, directors), public-private partnerships (i.e. buyout of a state enterprise by private ). Everything is still ahead of them.

      Two comic laughing assumptions:
      1. So that the enemy UAV does not crash the leader on the podium, as happened with one high-ranking Iranian. Kimchik all the time examined the sky, as if he was afraid of something. At least for a modern UAV, it does not matter whether it is day or night.
      2. So that there were no prominent dummies (plywood, etc.), from which the technique was made. I spend the night for the evening lighting, everything looks much worse! Kim is as scary as she can. Many small animals do this, straightening on 2 legs or straightening their feathers, who has something in cash ...

            And with those scarce resources that they have at their disposal, they are doing a good job with the assigned tasks - they have created a completely viable, promising seven-roll "base" for further working out their own concept of a "network-centric" MBT with KAZ! yes

          Radio-controlled wheeled chassis and drones with bolted video cameras. Vladimir Khrustalev, an expert on nuclear programs, commenting on the parade for the media, noticed a drone circling the flagpole. A wheeled chassis with a camera can be seen in the video of another parade, filmed when Kim Jong Il was alive.

    I was more pleased with OTRK similar to Iskander))
    Well, the "timber carrier" with 11 axles

      The technique (if not the layouts) is impressive. The director's work is excellent, the technique is removed from all angles - not like in Moscow. The tank has a different concept - an inhabited tower, but most likely there is an active defense (if this is not a layout).

    It doesn't smell like reinforcement. A reduced copy of Abrams is even more or less similar. And judging by how the trunks are shaking and the appearance of the towers themselves, these are some kind of dummies of a new tank and nothing more. Did not impress. Smells like eyewash.

    Is the KAZ system in the tower?

      Apparently, they bought something like the old Soviet "thrush-2", most likely our "non-brothers" sold them (as in the case of missile technologies), although according to rumors, our "Afghanite" grew out of this system.

    They write that this is "Hwaseong-15" and that the radius of action also captures the United States. But it seems that we are talking only about Alaska.

    This is not Hwaseong-15, but Hwaseong-16. The previous missile, the Hwaseong-15, was theoretically designed for firing at a range of 13000 km. But this is only in theory. In reality, it reached a range of 950 km with an apogee of 4475 km. How much the Hwaseong-16 is theoretically designed for is not yet known

    Almost all of this has already flashed. All of them, one way or another, flashed at parades.

    Advanced.






    Self-propelled ATGM in the first photo is shown for the first time. As well as the self-propelled gun (wheeled tank in the second photo). But the SPG in the third photo was shown at the 2018 parade.

    For the even heavier ICBM shown at the parade, an 11-axle carrier was assembled - at least 4 pieces.

    Three. They had missiles with numbers ending in 406, 408, 912. Hwaseong-15! bflo really 4 (missile numbers 004, 012, 0,30, 401)

    Thanks to the author for the WHOLE parade. I looked with interest ... It is clear why the United States is afraid of the DPRK. The power and power is not ostentatious. Koreans have chosen their own path - and this path is not the herd of consumption and the deification of money.

    I also looked with pleasure. The only negative, which is not yet with Russian translations, even on Yuri Lyamin's blog. I think that a Russian-language version will appear in a couple of days.
    Power, frankly ostentatious in relation to missiles. Where they will fly - no one knows. They never fired at maximum range. The Hwaseong-15 ICBM flew 950 km, although the declared range was 13000 km. True, it broke the record for the apogee - 4475 km.
    As for the MLRS, I agree here. They participate in exercises and show good results. So it's still partly showy power

    In order to help the Koreans along this path, Russia needs to completely withdraw from the sanctions regime against the DPRK. Restore cooperation in all areas. Whoever needs it badly, let them authorize it themselves.

    The sanctions were imposed by the UN Security Council. Okay, we counteracted the sanctions of certain countries such as the United States, the Federal Republic of Germany, etc., but will we blow the UN sanctions that apply to all UN members? Or will we become the same outcasts as the DPRK? Probably just for that it needs to be done to annoy America, not caring about itself ??? Oh well...

    The parade was held at 4 am. As stated for the safety of the population in a pandemic ...

      Sanctions imposed by the UN Security Council ...

      Russia and China in the UN Security Council have a veto right. The US and Britain easily block any resolutions if they need to. In relation to the North. Korea, Russia simply could not stand the pressure of the United States.
      At the request of the United States and Japan, they even blocked labor migration.
      Washington's demand for Moscow to abandon the "North Korean guest workers" by the Director of Political Planning of the US Department of State Brian Hook voiced back in mid-November. According to him, workers from the DPRK send home up to $ 130 million every year, and this money is also spent on government programs. Read, nuclear missiles.

      Although in some areas Moscow still insisted on its interests. Thus, Moscow abandoned its participation in the large economic project "Khasan-Rajin" and retained air traffic.
      Oleg Burmistrov, Ambassador-at-Large of the Russian Foreign Ministry, said.
      We oppose, firstly, a complete economic blockade of the DPRK and, secondly, we defend our own economic interests.

      Or will we become the same outcasts as the DPRK?

      Sorry, but this is not a serious argument on your part. Russia was identified as an outcast on March 5, 1946, after Winston Churchill's Fulton speech. They do not hesitate to shit even in sports.
      Probably just for that it needs to be done in order to annoy America, not caring about itself ??? Oh well...

      This must be done in order to defend your interests. The same Americans calmly deploy their missile defense systems in Poland, Romania and South Korea.

    Paradox! The poor, half-starved country of the DPRK lives by the standards of the 60s of the last century. But ... With 1000% sanctions and without any foreign cooperation, he creates quite advanced weapons ... How does this happen ???

    The most curious thing about this tank is the twin ATGM launcher on the right side of the turret. This is original, no one has yet installed a mounted PU ATGM along with a conventional tank gun on a serial main tank.

      For North Koreans, tanks are not weighed in anything at all - both ATGMs and even MANPADS are screwed onto the turret! Googling - you will see a lot of interesting things)) Evil tongues, however, say that all these gadgets are not from a good life - they supposedly cannot yet create a full-fledged ATGM launched through the barrel, or they have problems with BOPS ..

    Nobody but the North Koreans. They have such a tank - "Songun-915" (model 98 Juche, ie 2009). At that over the mask of the gun there are 2 containers with ATGM Bulsae-3 (analogue of our "Cornet", and on the right side of the turret there is a twin MANPADS

    One did not understand why this action takes place in the dark?

    If you believe what they write, there is no crowding in the streets, although there is darkness for the people on the square itself. The parade was at 4 a.m.

    The country lives under the eternal sanctions of the West. They say they live badly. The answer is that many Western countries would not have survived in such a situation at all.

    And while watching it, I got a certain feeling of nostalgia for the days of developed socialism in the USSR. The feeling is twofold: on the one hand - the parade to the 75th anniversary of the formation of the DPRK, the column of soldiers and equipment; on the other hand, Eun's speech, so similar to the reports of the Soviet secretaries general.
    Comparisons of "experts" of the site are very interesting. What weighty arguments, what a thorough analysis of the characteristics, habitability of the tower, the diameter of the rocket tube. For some reason, no one remembered that this tiny country has been under sanctions since 2006. A country against which the whole world is up in arms (in the person of the United States and Japan in the first place) for ??? For the desire to have actual and not declarative sovereignty?
    What strange tendencies. Israel has literally the same (albeit in an improved version). His "friendly relations" with neighbors are highly doubtful. But what different fates ...
    And I like the fact that having practically no "partners" except China, Russia, this small, but a very proud bird but a very proud country has bitten the bald patch of more than one American president. And she is not embarrassed by the absence of foreign composites, the dollar rate, or the price of hydrocarbons. Nothing has been heard about corruption in the echelons of power, and there can be no double opinion about the orientation of the North Korean "elite".
    What an interesting example. They didn’t want to, as in Ukraine ... Do not "fall for" lace panties. For them, the content is more important than the form in which it is located.
    And the question of demography in a country whose population from 1945 (about 10 million people) to 000 (more than 000 million people) has grown 2020 times, increasing every last year of sanctions by 25 - 000 people.
    And, remarkably, the country will have a future. If someone does not know, then statehood determines the presence of indigenous people in the territories ... Therefore, if in Siberia, for example, the number of inhabitants of Chinese origin exceeds the number of the existing population by several times, then a problem may arise in the territory belonging to ... If of course, these migrants will not receive Russian passports.
    You can scoff at the fatness of the North Korean leader, you can discuss the diet of the inhabitants of the DPRK, you can exaggerate information and rumors about the right to leave and enter "from" and "to" the territory of the country. One cannot but admit. The country (residents of the country) solves its problems without complaining about any administrative lawlessness, or the callousness of officials, or medical care, or education.
    Moreover, the average life expectancy in the country is 70 years (m-67, w-74) If we talk about pensions, here:
    It is known that in North Korea people of retirement age receive an average of 30 USD per month. They do not have to enjoy old age, since the authorities oblige pensioners to work for the good of society. North Korean old people in the countryside cultivate the land and grow food, in the urban area they look after flower beds. Senior citizens of the North Korean territory cannot go on a well-deserved rest.

    True, they do not collect funds for the operations and treatment of children using SMS messages. Yes, and "majors" in Pyongyang on foreign cars also do not "cut". However, only the scarcity and lack of agricultural land affects the diet and other household needs.
