Ministry of Defense of Bulgaria: Repair and modernization of T-72M tanks will be carried out with the involvement of foreign companies

Reports come from Bulgaria that the country's defense ministry has signed a contract to modernize its tank fleet. At the same time, it is reported that the "modernization" will consist of repairs so far 44 tanks T-72M and three command armored vehicles MT-LB-U.


According to the latest data, the total cost of such a contract is about 40 million euros.

The state-owned company TEREM-Holding will carry out the repair of tanks. She will carry out renovation activities for 2 years. Earlier, the same company repaired 13 tanks of the Bulgarian army, which was also called "modernization".

Defense Minister Krasimir Karakachanov signed an agreement with the said company on December 16. From the statement of the Bulgarian minister:

The contract is aimed at improving the combat capabilities of the ground forces. This is a useful step in the right direction. We are restoring the balance in the modernization of our armed forces.

It is argued that the modernization is carried out, among other things, in order to improve the accuracy of fire from the 125-mm T-72M cannon.

At the same time, it was added that the modernization of T-72M tanks will be carried out with the involvement of foreign companies. What kind of foreign companies we are talking about, whether they are from Russia, has not yet been reported.

The complex of repair and modernization works will be carried out at the plant in the Bulgarian Targovishte.

    Not otherwise will they negotiate with the Ukrainians. But these are their (Bulgarians) tanks, which means it is up to them to decide. Although 40 million euros are also not superfluous for us.

      Elbit systems. Ukraine does not have such technologies. Plus, IAI will supply, perhaps again through Elbit, new radar systems for the Air Force, worth 200 million euros, so Israel has a position among the Bulgarian military. And technology too.

          Yes, it turns out that way. So far there are no problems, but you don't have to be Wanga to see that the world is restless. So they started spending more on the army this year. Fortunately, there is money, only there would be a desire. And the call was restored and I suspect that this is a step to the obligatory call again. Otherwise, in this year began the darkness of military projects. If we continue this way for several years, we will quickly turn into a rather militarized power. laughing Well, by European standards ....

          So far, only voluntary service. hi
          Voluntary military service introduced in Bulgaria (Dec 16, 2020)
          Any Bulgarian citizen under the age of 40, at his request and provided that he meets the requirements of the law, can undergo a 6-month service in the country's Armed Forces. This became possible after the adoption by the deputies of the People's Assembly of amendments to the Law on the Reserve of the Armed Forces of Bulgaria, the press service of the Ministry of Defense said. The changes create an opportunity for compulsory military service in the voluntary reserve. An agreement will be concluded with everyone who wishes, providing for remuneration, social security contributions and medical insurance.
          The amendments to the law enable employers to retain their staff by allowing them to take unpaid leave to perform compulsory military service in a voluntary reserve.
          The changes will also expand the education of students who can acquire skills related to defending their homeland, surviving military crises, and knowledge of the missions and missions of the military.

        By the way, the Belarusians received 40+ million euros from us for the modernization of the 8x SU 25. They coped just in time, perfectly well. And they will probably get a job for the rest of the drying.
        By the way, they stuffed everything that is possible inside:

          Belarusians produce only part of the equipment for SU 25, and the rest has to be purchased from the Russian Federation.

                I don’t know, dear, I’m not an expert on NATO countries. Each country has its own policies and laws. At our tenders, especially aviation ones, guarantees are needed, to prove the possibility of repair / modernization, and so on.

                As an example, our Mig 29s are capitalized only by you. And what we can and do ourselves. Otherwise, RSK Mig received from us, in the last 10 years, probably about 140 million euros.

      Replacing with another 125mm gun. For example, replacing 2A46 with 2A46M increases the accuracy of fire on moving targets on the move by 1.5 times. And then there is M2 M3 M4 M5. The latter are already mainly on the T90. Poles have M, they put it on their firm. The Chinese have an analogue.
