"Russians have a lot to learn": Romania urged to transfer the experience of standardization to local realities

19

The Russian army has specialized armored vehicles designed to destroy tanks... However, in the future, the military intends to replace it with a new product that will organically fit into the line of armored vehicles based on the "Armata".


As Romania Military believes, this experience of standardization should be transferred to the Romanian army, taking into account local realities.

At present, the mobile "anti-tank shield" of the RF ground forces is represented by the "Chrysanthemum-S" systems on the BMP-3 chassis.

But Russia is seeking to standardize its weapons by developing a new tank destroyer.

- is noted in the publication, referring to the T-17 product, which is based on the Armata chassis.

Too much diversity can harm the army in terms of logistics [...] From this point of view, the Ministry of Defense has a lot to learn from the Russians. Let's move on to unitary technique, general motorization, simplified maintenance

- called on the pages of the publication.

As explained, at present, the mobile anti-tank forces of the Romanian troops are represented by BRDM armed with Malyutka and Konkurs ATGMs. However, these vehicles no longer fit into the army's arsenal.

We Romanians have to use what we have on the farm, that is, lightly armored 4x4 vehicles (Humvee or Vamtac), equipped with a Spike LR launcher

- the author writes, pointing out that his idea has both advantages (high mobility of new SPTRK) and disadvantages (low degree of protection), however, he believes, in this equation outweighs the need for standardization.

For our part, we note that in the Romanian army, according to the IISS for 2020, there were 12 BRDM-29P122 with Malyutka-M ATGM, 74 BRDM-29P133 with Malyutka-P and 48 BRDM-29P148 with Konkurs ( not counting such anti-tank weapons as 218 M-1977 guns and 23 Su-100 self-propelled guns in storage). At the same time, there are Israeli portable ATGM Spike LR, which are just proposed to be put on American or Spanish cars.

    In principle, why not? Suitable for the protection of Romanian citizens on the territory of Ukraine, because there is no other reason for using these pribluds. We don't need them for nothing.

      In my opinion, the (historical) value is
      stored 23 ACS Su-100
      It would be nice for the Russian side to redeem them, like the T-34 from Laos in 2019.

        Romanians? I don't think they are valuable to us.
        They have only one way to run into trouble with Russia - to try to resolve the Transnistrian issue by force. There are no other reasons for using their ATGM systems against Russia. But with Ukraine, in terms of the infringement of ethnic minorities, graters are planned for both the Hungarians and the Romanians.

    I remember an anecdote about how a Romanian fell into a trap at the border ... this is when he bit off his leg, but still could not get out. ... a very bearded anecdote ... heredity is a great power! ))

    I'm not sure that the Humvee is better than a mess in terms of cross-country ability, well, they want to change better for their worst case. in the mind. if there is no better platform. then in their place the spikes are better to put in a mess

    Come on, what besides Humvee or Vamtac is there in the Romanian economy? Having a weak arsenal of anti-tank weapons, Romania continues to talk about Russia as a potential adversary and declares its readiness to resist. The hope that the NATO chief will help in the end may turn out to be a fiction.

    I agree especially the Armenians in Karabakh after the exercises with Russia have shown themselves, and the Syrians have been studying for some year, especially around Idlib, or learning to steal as they all pushed themselves against Kuznetsov or the doomsday plane or at Putin's residence, too, you know, you cannot praise yourself, etc.

      I wonder if Turkey was not a NATO member, how long would she have stayed in Idlib?

    Inspired. King Mihai was a Knight Commander of our Order of Victory. There were five of these orders of the entire type. Who knows where this order is now?
