Poland is deciding what communication facilities will be on modernized Leopard 2PL tanks

13

Currently, Poland is deciding what communication facilities will be on the modernized tanks Leopard 2PL. The final decision will be made based on the results of analytical work on the modernization of this equipment, which is being carried out by the Arms Inspectorate.


The official representative of this organization, Major Krzysztof Platek, reported this to the Polish edition of Defense 24.

The phase of solving analytical and conceptual tasks, within which the communication systems of Leopard 2A4 tanks will be upgraded to version 2PL and 2PLM1, is currently at its final stage.

- he said.

Thus, the Polish Arms Inspectorate is completing preparations for the implementation of procedures, as a result of which new communication equipment will be ordered for the modernized tanks. This is necessary because today the German radio stations installed in the Leopards are outdated. The Weapons Inspectorate is considering several options for communication systems to replace existing ones, in order to choose the most suitable one.

Leopard 2A4 tanks, transferred to Poland by Germany in 2003-2004, went to it practically for nothing, since Warsaw paid only for the re-activation and delivery of these combat vehicles. True, they cannot be called new either, because they were made in the second half of the 80s of the last century.

    The commander of the tank regiment informs the officer that a vehicle with new radio stations has arrived.
    The young lieutenant asks: radios based on lamps or semiconductors?
    Ladle: I repeat, the radio stations on the tanks ...

          So what are the means of communication, this is not communication. Communication is when the flags are semaphore. The construction battalion is immediately visible. laughing hi

    "Poland is deciding what communication facilities will be on modernized Leopard 2PL tanks"

    Install radiation-resistant ones, although this will not help the Poles either.
    Nobody is going to fight against Poland with conventional weapons, wait for a vigorous loaf, you deserve it.

    Although the equipment is old, but the Germans handed it over very cleverly. All maintenance and modernization should be carried out only at branded enterprises and licensed spetsmuialistami. Poles and are dissatisfied with the expensive maintenance of German equipment. And they don’t expel once again.

      I heard about such a German trick with my ears. And in this regard, the question: Why are psheki muddying the water there? What the Germans say, they will bet. No gag !!! And then they came up with - some kind of inspectorate. Shoot under the bench and sit still !!!

    But will the manufacturer give something to change there without coordinating it? Or was it such dung that the Germans didn’t care what would happen to him .....................

      Most likely they will agree with the manufacturer. But the tanks are not very modern either.
