The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine named the main battle tank of the Armed Forces of Ukraine for the next 25 years

Main battle a tank The Armed Forces of Ukraine will remain the T-25 for the next 64 years. Deputy Defense Minister Alexander Mironyuk, who is in charge of weapons issues, told Defense Express about this.


According to Mironyuk, the T-64 will remain the main battle tank of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the coming years, albeit in a modernized version. The deputy minister specified that at present, development work is underway under the code "Crab", within which the tank will be modernized, which will allow it to operate for another 25 years. The first prototype of the improved T-64 of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine is expected to receive in late 2021 or early 2022.

The main battle tank of the Ukrainian Armed Forces is and will be the T-64 in the coming years. Now the development work of the "Crab" is underway, which provides for the modernization of the tank so that we can operate it for another 25 years. The first stage has already been completed - the development of design documentation. We hope that by the end of 2021 or early 2022, we will receive the first prototype of the modernized T-64.

- said Mironyuk.

The Ukrainian Armed Forces also require, in addition to the T-64, the supply of Oplot tanks. The deputy minister specified that development work is also underway with respect to this tank under the code "Bastion", which provides for the complete replacement of Russian parts in the tank with domestic or foreign ones. The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine plans to receive the first sample of the new completely import-substituted "Oplot" in 2023.

    development work is currently underway under the code "Crab"

    Crab is a symbolic name. Probably claws and will collect ...

          As Khoja Nasreddin said: either the donkey dies, or the padishah, no one can check))) but in general - sheer nonsense. In combat units, they do not want "bulat", because it is heavier by 3,5 tons - the "hodovka" does not stand up, if we make it more heavy - it can only ride on asphalt)))

        Crab is the name of the Polish self-propelled gun, Bastion is the name of the ground-based launch complex with the Onyx anti-ship missile system, although new names could be invented.

      And also ... sideways, sideways ... to move ... Earlier, in Soviet times, Kharkov tanks had more and more "plant and river" names: "Ob", "Alder", "Birch" "and so on, etc...

    Oh, gods, a whole new OBT was conceived, but the fact that this is another variation of an old car with new whistles is apparently the norm. And where is the new tank? Armata is new, but in what place except letters after 64?

      And this is generally a CLASS!
      The deputy minister clarified that with regard to this tank, development work is also underway under the code "Bastion", which provides for full import substitution of Russian parts in a tank for domestic or foreign production.

      Change one "imported parts" for others, but also imported! laughing
      This is what import substitution means "Ukrainian"! good

      Tirex, if I remember correctly, was not a project of the Ministry of Defense, but a private initiative of the neo-fascist Azov.
      Another thing is that if you look closely at the drawings presented, it was also de facto based on the T-64.

    As long as the resource of operation and modernization allows, the Armed Forces of Ukraine will use them to the holes, but what will happen next, they will probably adopt military cars of the times of the civil war!

    Who would doubt that. However, not only for the coming years, but forever. How much time is left for them.

      Rumor has it that the hulls of tanks at the burial grounds are running out, they probably choose on the basis of what they should create a new tank, on Altai or Centurion.

          I think it has nothing to do with faith, real Catholics probably only stayed in Poland. Ukraine, through the efforts of the oligarchs, has long been a banana republic, we have one sheer theft. But our society is developing and after the Maidan, not a single president can already feel free - sho gunpowder sho Zelya they are like on a powder keg, they can burst at any minute. And you? While Putin lures and does not allow the oligarchs to get very impudent, you sit in the stall straight. Our oligarchs have lost their shores completely, the only benefit from the Maidan is that more and more people understand that it is impossible to live like this.

              He understands at the everyday level, and as soon as he becomes either a deputy or an official, one thought at once - How to steal!?!
              We do not need any loans for a long time, they themselves have a lot of money. But firstly they steal, and secondly they force them to take more, driving future generations into bondage and putting Ukraine in a pose of cancer. There will be another civil war - between the poor and the rich, or they will go abroad, while the coronavirus has suspended the mass departure.

    In my opinion, this shows very well the scale of the country's collapse.
    Ukraine inherited from the USSR a really developed industry, powerful factories in Kharkov. Their design office was one of the best in the world.
    Many breakthrough projects, Favorite "Rebel", "Hammer", "Boxer", "Nota" showed potential and possibilities.

    Initially, it ended with a modified T-80UD with a new turret and the name - Oplot.
    Now it turns out that even this has surpassed the capabilities of the fallen state, and there remains one more modernization of the old tank. The T-64 is a revolutionary tank for its time, but already in design, at the beginning it was extremely modified and without any modernization potential - and that was half a century ago !!!

    It is better to let them get along with Poland and take the PT-91 and T-72M1 and upgrade them in Poland even to the level of PT-91 - this will be more effective until the money is stolen by other "shadow" intermediaries.
    It won't do much good, but it might be possible to avoid ridicule and blame someone else.

    In a sense, Malysheva, Kharkov, I'm sorry - you really need to be able to screw something up!

    I will not be surprised if soon "Decommissioned Abrams" of sand color will appear at the "valiant APU" ..
    And if you recall, after the collapse of the USSR, the Ukrainian Army was the second most equipped in Europe (after Russia)! Where is everyone? There, after all, not only weapons and warehouses were left, but also the powerful military-industrial complex of rocketry, tank building, shipbuilding and other other things ... Until now, they cannot plunder and destroy everything.
    Soon Biden will complete everything completely)))
