The Ministry of Defense received another batch of modernized T-72B3 tanks

The Russian Defense Ministry received another batch of modernized tanks T-72B3, overhauled. This was reported by the press service of the Uralvagonzavod concern (UVZ).


According to the concern, the tanks were transferred as part of the state defense order. The T-72B tanks received from the military department's repair fund were modernized with a major overhaul. The number of the transferred equipment is not mentioned in the message.

The work was carried out as part of the state defense order, in accordance with the conditions of which the T-72B tanks received from the repair fund underwent overhaul and deep modernization to the level of T-72B3

- said the press service of UVZ.

It is specified that all modernized T-72B3 tanks of this batch received Russian thermal imagers instead of previously installed foreign ones.

Thermal imaging channels of Russian production are not inferior in their characteristics to previously installed foreign ones

- said in a statement.

T-72B3 is an upgraded version of the T-72 main battle tank. The T-72B3 has more powerful engines of 1130 hp, an improved fire control system with a digital ballistic computer, a sight with a laser rangefinder and an anti-tank missile control system, and the latest generation of digital communications. In addition, tanks are equipped with a rearview camera to facilitate reversing.

The T-72B3 armor is reinforced with side screens with Relict dynamic protection modules, mounted lattice screens, as well as new dynamic protection systems in a “soft” case.

In early September this year, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu announced that the entire fleet of T-72 tanks in Russia would be upgraded to the level of T-72B3.

    I hope that the crews for them will be formed from the "kids" of our oligarchs, members of the country's government, the ruling council, the Duma, governors, so that if they use this "budget modernization" in combat, they will learn that the life of a tanker is really short-lived. ..

          I must always write that I do not consider Israel in principle))) I like the Merkava, but there is also a clear understanding that it is, well, a very highly specialized vehicle for a specific theater of operations) and the presence of 5000 tanks of various models on such a small piece of land always amazed me) but in general Yes. you're right.

      It was possible to continue to purchase the T-90. 63 pieces per year. Because UVZ quickly responded to changes in the military budget, raising the price of the tank (the last time increasing it immediately by 70%).
      And then we would now have court divisions on the T-90, and the rest of the army on the T-72B and A, made during the USSR. And their life would definitely be short-lived.

        And they are needed, thousands of tanks. Maybe we will also modernize the carts. Less is more. With the current saturation of the battlefield with anti-tank weapons, all these 72-ki and BMP1, 2, 3, without active protection, are nothing more than fraternal coffins. All this resembles the battles of the Tigers with the T34. They took the number, a deadly lottery, who will come closer to the Tiger. Here is one of 15 crews and got there.

Much more of these same chances are given by the development of military air defense and reconnaissance means. subunit training and command and control. AZ can and should be delivered. look for new remedies. but you yourself understand that the richest army in the world does not even have DZ on all machines. I am silent about AZ. from the age of 17 they became worried and then simply buying from those who developed at the same time they put it very slowly and then only in Europe. because it's kind of not cheap)

      Well, yes, of course it would be better to make 20000 new Armats, fill up all the warehouses with them and wait until they also become obsolete, or completely rot, as it already was.
      There is no money flow, no.
      And Armata is more of a technology demonstrator. To keep the industry in good shape, pull up to the "world" level.
      And, thank God, not a war, so that everything is for the front.

          If the T72s are still alive, why throw them away? There are more than enough recruits to teach.
          Resources must be treated with care.
          Even the T55 can cope with driving in the south of the Barmaley.

              Well, we made these tanks. Thank God the war did not happen, they are all stupidly rotten. And the money is spent. Iron, high quality, expensive, was also spent. People, again, worked.
              Instead of these tanks, they could build the same bridge across the Ob or a tunnel to Sakhalin, which they still only dream of, or Zhiguli / Muscovites for everyone, so that people do not stand in line for 10 years.
              But no, the warehouses were clogged.
              And for what?
              So that all this stuff turns into trash.
              Suggest to repeat?
              And by the way, in the army conscripts could be trained completely on the T55. One fig, machinery for slaughter.

          do not carry blizzards. in the first place, no one will change what already works. that the states or the Germans are in no hurry to change their MBTs to new ones, but modernize what is, enhancing their capabilities. secondly, the military only started last year. and you should first understand in general what military tests are in principle and why they are carried out.

      I have a friend, a colonel, a tanker. Just went to the reserve. The division was very famous. When I talked, all my optimism vanished. Show-off, lack of spare parts, a lot of downtime for equipment, bosses strive to please their superiors, criticism or any wishes to improve the current state of equipment are suppressed by the army quickly and to the root. Therefore, everyone is silent.

    With our tanks, during transportation on railway platforms, there was a case in the GDR: the turret rotation stopper was poorly fixed (or they forgot to lock it) and the turret was turned by a cannon across the train. The oncoming passenger train spun her and revolving, she stabbed part of the passenger cars. There were victims. After that, a rule was introduced: when transporting a tank on a railway platform, the cable for towing the tank (included in the kit of each tank) must be hooked onto one hook, make a turn around the barrel, and then it was hooked onto another tank hook.
    Or so

      credit i.e. They found time to completely hide the tower during loading, but there is no need to follow the fastening rules?))) For many years of service, I personally have not met the fact that someone would even think to ignore them in this way. fasteners are always standard and are checked three times. so you were told correctly, everything is under the tarpaulin and the trunks are turned back)))

        Yes, it looks like under the tarp.
        Not a cable, most likely an armature.

      One more thing I noticed, which is insignificant for most commentators:
      on the last modification of the T-72B3, the track was changed again.

      now they put this (with an oblique tooth)

      for comparison T-90

    Interestingly, do drones with guided munitions deal with the T-72B3, T-15, T-80, T-90 in the same way? But is it the same with the Abrams?

        Yes, only Abramov is actively defended. All cars will be equipped. Now in Israel, work is underway on the protection of the upper hemisphere of the tanks.

      And what is "abrasha" better?
      There is no indestructible technology, the only question is the price.

      when a war goes on with a normal army, firstly, there is a military air defense to cover them, and secondly, a lot of things fly in in response.

      The Abrams from above have the same "tin" as everyone else. It's not for nothing that they put a 30 mm gun on the Warthog.

    Without KAZ, tanks in modern combat are simply useless self-propelled coffins !!!

      So after all, at first the generals need a new dress uniform with buttonholes, KAZ will wait. They will not sit in these coffins.

      But KAZ, unfortunately, is not a panacea.
      There are ways to "break through" it and have been known for a long time. It's just that so far they have rarely been used as unnecessary.

        Certainly not a panacea, but the chances of survival in battle are seriously increased.

    Commentators, please, do not use numbers of tanks in the Russian Federation.
    All of you, almost 99,9% of those who are here, even serving in the Russian army, and even in the tank troops, DO NOT KNOW the exact number of tanks (by the way, and aircraft) and NEVER know.
    This information is absolutely secret. Moreover, all the stuffing in the media about the number is manipulation and deliberate misinformation of a potential enemy.
    The exact number of tanks, their location, how many are under repair, how many are for modernization, how many were transferred from modernization, how many are in the project for the future - this is totally classified.
    To the question why ?, I will answer like this:
    Tanks are the only universal combat units, maximally protected, capable of moving in conditions when there is large-scale destruction around after the use of weapons of mass destruction.
    Directly even in this article it is stated:
    The number of the transferred equipment is not mentioned in the message.

    Still would.))

    Normal tank. For rolling experience will go. To master the innovations of the electronics industry too. Do not hit in the combat units of the T-90 and Armata ... And so the young people to learn and biathlon and exercise to ride. Again, tanks don't work on their own for a long time. And in the conditions of network-centric war, even such an old man only have time to cut goals.
