The Ukrainian Ministry of Defense has ordered 12 modernized T-64BM2 "Crab" tanks

50

The Ukrainian Ministry of Defense plans to receive the "latest" Tanks T-64BM2 "Crab". According to Defense Express, two Ukrainian defense enterprises are already working on the first batch of 12 tanks.


Reportedly, the work on the modernization of 12 T-64 tanks to the level of T-64BM2 "Crab" is being jointly carried out by the plant. Malyshev (Zim) and the Kharkov Armored Plant (KhBTZ) as part of the order of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine. The resulting tank should be the most powerful version of the T-64 and, most likely, the very last. It is also impossible to endlessly modernize a tank that is more than half a century old.

As a result of the modernization of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, a tank with a new power plant, fire control and aiming systems, as well as enhanced firepower with the use of Kombat guided missiles should be obtained. And most importantly, without Russian components. It is emphasized that at the same time, Ukrainian engineers will take into account the experience of the combat use of tanks in Donbass and "will be able to avoid the mistakes of the Russians, which they made with the T-72 and T-90 during the modernization."

The creation of the tank, and we are most likely talking about a prototype, is scheduled to be completed at the end of this year, or early next. At least that's what the KMDB said. Of course, it is hard to believe in this, as well as in the plans to assemble 12 new Crab tanks and in the future to receive ten new vehicles every year.

Despite the fact that the T-64BM2 "Crab" tank is not yet available, the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine has already announced that the upgraded MBTs will become the main tank of the Armed Forces of Ukraine for the next 25 years.

      and bitterness too: the plant to them. MALYSHEVA -Russian man, People's Commissar of Heavy Engineering of the USSR, works, in fact, against Russia.

      Vyacheslav Aleksadrovich, I think, could not have dreamed of this even in a nightmare ...

        But seriously, I was always surprised that the military infrastructure of Ukraine works without problems. And this is in the presence of hostilities on its territory. To the east, trains with equipment and HP are flowing along a piece of iron. Where are the guerrilla and sabotage actions? Why is the LDNR army waiting for all this "wealth" to reach the front line and begin to blame them?

          Even the Nazis smeared snot that the partisans were not fighting honestly. And the SNN with the BBS will instantly show partisan activity as terrorist, but this is not fashionable .. Here in general it is. And not to partisan is bad, and partisan, unfortunately, is also not the best option. Because so far only rabid Ukrainians are barking about Russian-terrorist troops, and if you take them seriously, it will be even easier for Congress to push European jackals into various nasty things.

        One cannon doesn't solve anything. The electronics there are still from the bottom, and you have to crawl out to fire a machine gun. I am inclined to think that the T-72 is completely outdated technically and it is most reasonable to use it for the construction of reefs. Russia needs a completely new Main Tank.

            Just look at the Americans. Abrams is old, but great electronics keep it relevant. Or Leclerc, after all, before the sanctions, we bought just French electronics - of course, outdated in France, they keep the best for themselves, there is no such perversion that products are sent for export better than in their own army. This is a purely Soviet-Russian idiot, there is no such thing in any normal country.

                Does it make sense to save? When the fight begins, will we end up in a Tsushima situation? When our people are seen from afar, out of our visibility range - and they pierce with the first shot? There are suspicions that most of our current tanks are not that far from the Iraqi ones. But the western ones are improving all the time. It may not even happen Karabakh.

                  laughing Well, your suspicions were such that half an hour ago you did not know that the T-72b3 had a new AZ and a new cannon ... so your suspicions are worth very little ... and yes ... Bringing Karabakh is very funny, you can still give a stupid example ? and about "they see from afar" .. the current range of any modern tanks is 3,5 km ... and at this range he sees both the T-72b3 and the Abrams .. no difference ...

    Do not forget to place the tracks across the tank when upgrading them. To match the name.
    the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine has already announced that the modernized MBT will become the main tanks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine for the next 25 years.
    All 12 pieces ordered.

    Imechko have come up with something. In English (American for sure, most likely in British too) slang the word "Crab" means a louse, moreover, not a head louse and not a louse, but one that cannot be called by its own name in Russian by the rules of the site. Therefore, I will give the scientific Latin specific name: Pthirus pubis.

    Everything has been clear with them for a long time ... they need to turn off the gas, raise duties, impose sanctions and meet everyone in Donetsk and Lugansk ... with applications for obtaining Russian citizenship. Those who have a lot of money have been gathering for a long time for a drill, they will be dumped there in the end. And the rest, who are not moral or not, will not go to Poland for apples, but to Russia for the truth. Everything else will not justify itself in the end.

    But will they be able to eliminate the "fatal" shortcomings of the T-64? No, they won't, they will stay with this tank

    Full material on the modernization of the "newest" tank to the level of T-64BM2 was published in the Ukrainian edition https://defence-ua.com/minds_and_ideas/spravzhnij_t_64_krab_bez_pomilok_rf_simbioz_bulata_t_64_zrazka_2017_ta_tml_84-2412
    But the most important answer to the questions was under the material:

    Alexander Labuz
    The article as a whole and about what, at least because we do not have a 6TD-1 engine. It used to be, but now it is not. Reflections and fortune-telling on the coffee grounds. That's when we see in the metal then everything will fall into place. Although the picture of the probable appearance of the crab is similar to its first variant - with lattices. Confusion with the names - T-64BM is not Bulat, it is a "crazy" name for one of its prototypes. BM Bulat is its official name. T-64BM is a T-64BV modernized in 20177. And the T-64BM2 (again, not to be confused with the prototype of Bulat) is the same BV but with a new engine which is not yet available (available in the 6td-2 series) and vague modifications

      "Rzhaka" here is most likely in the fact that after the T-64 is not visible in the APU and the production of the NEW MBT. The fact that Ukraine is prudent about 64s and does not melt them down, but modernizes is of course understandable and normal ... but there is NO tank that replaces it. In the Russian Federation, the same zealous attitude towards 72 MBTs (in general, everyone has a zealous attitude towards tanks in the world), BUT 72 is not the final tank in this line ..... there is a 90-ik serial and is already on the basis of "Armata" probably so to speak pre-production

    so we have ....... T-64 MBT for another 25 years .... officially ..... that is, there is no talk about the production of new tanks ..... there is no talk about the design of new tanks either. ... that is, tank-building factories and design bureaus are not needed ... tank repair workshops are enough .... for 10 tanks per year for 2 enterprises, then the scale is certainly NOT a factory. Now about the number of tanks in general ... 25 years X 10 tanks / year we have 250 Crab-level tanks on the exhaust ... with 1300 T-64 tanks in total ... mmmmmm ... .not bold ... not bold at all ...
