40

The Indonesian Armed Forces will soon get into service "tank boat "(tank boat). Tests of the first prototype have already begun.


The Tank Boat is designed for operations in swampy areas, sea and river expanses, on coastlines such as the Strait of Malacca, Sulawesi and Natun. The prototype put up for testing is armed with a 30-mm cannon, but in the future, the "tank boat" is planned to be equipped with a turret with a 105-mm Cockerill CT-CV 105HP tank gun with a maximum range of 10 km, as well as a remotely controlled turret with a machine gun up to 20 mm or with a gun up to 30 mm.

According to the requirements of the Indonesian army, the Tank Boat must accommodate 5 crew members and 60 landing people, develop a max. speed of 40 knots, work at a minimum depth of 120 cm. Cruising endurance is 350 miles at a speed of 30 knots and up to 900 miles in patrol mode at a speed of 9 knots.

The first display of the computer model X18 Tank Boat took place in 2015; on March 11, 2020, the Indonesian Ministry of Defense signed a contract for the production of the first prototype. Despite the fact that the serial production of the "tank boat" is still far away, the company PT Pindad, which developed the Tank Boat, reports a large number of orders for the supply of the boat for export. True, the customers have not yet been named.

      So I thought. And what rate of fire and ammo? Maybe it was easier to put a 57 mm universal one? So it is easy by air. And what will 105 do. Although there is a turret up to 30mm. But nothing is said about ATGM or MANPADS. Space?
      In general, it would be better to install a universal combat module with all possible range of weapons to choose from.

        Exactly, put up two towers. One from the "Air Defense derivation", the second from the mortar "Drok" and no one will leave us. We don't need a tank gun.

      Tank boat?
      Where are the caterpillars? laughing

      Although, joking aside, an armored catamaran with some firepower is really needed by Indonesia. There are a lot of islands, speed boats are quite common, even pirates have cool technical equipment. It is especially respectful that it is of local production. Well done, Indonesians.

      In Indonesia, boats are like our cars. They are very much needed, in particular by the security forces. And whoever has more powerful motors has an advantage. I remember moving from Jakarta to a small island on a high-speed catamaran. We flew along the waves of 40-50 knots, European tourists were already sitting next to them ... And I had fun, the last day of the business trip was free and foreshadowed gorgeous beaches! To catch such a vessel, you need to go faster or have a "long arm" of good caliber ...

        He is still a catamaran, he will not be turned over by the recoil of a 152 mm howitzer, it must be installed. In the Caspian flotilla there are boats with 76-mm cannons, a catamaran with a howitzer on board for replacement.

      ?????? So what? Not enough, apparently the gun lift angle is small. Our 100-mm tank gun sent a projectile to 12 km.

    And what about the protection, the case is plastic, or steel? It looks normal, we need a similar one for the Sea of ​​\ uXNUMXb \ uXNUMXbAzov. This is an armored boat, in terms of armament, and a delivery vehicle for the landing - special forces.

      These are the means of support for the landing force. And the landing is purely infantry.

          Poles complain not only about swamps, but also about birches. But in Indonesia there are few birches, and it will be especially difficult for them to get to the swamps, because they are on islands, and the islands, by a strange coincidence, are in the ocean.

    "tank boat" is planned to be equipped with a turret with a 105-mm Cockerill CT-CV 105HP tank gun with a maximum range of 10 km. "
    What the sea cannot endure with the surf ...
    Judging by the photomaran. This is already a plus for the designers.
    The speed is eighty km / h. This is no longer steel but AMG. Presumably.
    Wouldn't crushing the hull for an hour take place during active firing from 105 mm?
    Judging by the photos, you stupidly tear off the superstructure.
    You will have to place a barbet under the tank turret.
    It won't be a boat anymore. And even forty knots ...
    Some miracles ...

    A tank gun would be wrong. Direct fire is needed at moving targets, where will they come from on a river or sea coast? Unless it is hoped that the lost Abrams will hang its caterpillars over the cliff. A sea battle or a duel with coastal batteries in the spirit of the last century is also unlikely.
    Much more appropriate would be a mortar, as an example in the form of a turret from the new Drok system, or some 152 mm howitzer, like a cannon from the 2A61 PAT-B project, in order to scare American aircraft carriers with tactical nuclear ammunition.
