Not a single weapon: on technologies for the protection of modern tanks

13

What are the characteristics of modern tank can play a decisive role? To answer this question, it is necessary to take into account for which specific combat missions this or that vehicle will be used.


For a truly versatile tank, the most important parameters are a whole chain. This is speed, maneuverability, of course - and weapons. But not a single weapon ...

Also, a modern tank, even if it is perfectly armed and has the ability to develop an impressive speed for a multi-ton vehicle, is unlikely to be able to complete the assigned combat mission if it has relatively weak protection.

Today it is important for tank developers to solve a complex task, part of which is the creation of several levels of protection. Moreover, such protection should not lead to excessive weighting of the tank itself, otherwise it will directly affect both its speed and maneuverability indicators.

Therefore, technologies for protecting tanks from various ammunition are developing very actively today. These technologies, their specific performance on specific tanks are described in the release of the Military Acceptance program at the Zvezda shopping center. The video also presents tests of the KDZ (explosive reactive armor) "Relikt".

    Fabulous. They showed how a Turkish tank was hit in Syria, and the Syrian T-72 withstood the hit of the TOU.
    It was not easy to find such footage. good

        Surprised by the "forgetfulness" of the filmmakers about the combat stability of the T-72 in Syria and not surprised by the combat "stability" of the T-72 in Syria. hi

          Surprised by "forgetfulness"

          You just watched the article and the video, but immediately "forgot" that we were talking about tanks with and without reactive armor. I'm not particularly surprised by your "forgetfulness", this is the standard for you, "remember here, don't remember here."

            Well, what are you? Turkish M-60s were equipped with DZ as well as Syrian ones. I haven't forgotten that at all. After all, all the video materials are at hand.

              Not all M-60s have been brought to the level of "Sabra", far from all DZ are covered at least from the forehead. As well as the Syrian T-72.

                Tell this to the filmmakers who have been looking for footage of the T-72 that did not burn immediately.

                  Are you with a head or something? The film clearly states that the undestroyed T-72 was equipped with DZ, while the destroyed M-60 was not. And this does not contradict reality in any way.

    Also, a modern tank, even if it is perfectly armed and has the ability to develop an impressive speed for a multi-ton vehicle, is unlikely to be able to complete the assigned combat mission if it has relatively weak protection.

    Even the most protected tank will not be able to complete a combat mission if it is blind.
    And the "eyes" for the tank is its integration into the network centricity. Since the possession of a real combat situation for a tank commander, within a radius of 10 km around him, and in online mode, is already 50% of victory.
