Defense Department Continues Strengthening Marine Corps Units tanks... According to the press service of the Eastern Military District, a batch of modernized T-80BV tanks entered service with the Pacific fleet.


According to the report, the equipment arrived in Vladivostok by rail and, after unloading, went to the places of deployment. The tanks were transported on special trawls, the entire Marine Corps of the Pacific Fleet's Coastal Forces received "more than 20" modernized T-80BV tanks, the exact number has not been reported.

It is noted that this is not the first delivery of the T-80BV to the marines in the Far East; in 2018 and 2019, Kamchatka and Primorsky marines received 10 modernized T-80BV tanks. As previously stated in the Ministry of Defense, the T-80BV tank is fully suitable for operation in the Far East.

The T-80B tank and its modifications were produced at Omsktransmash JSC from 1979 to 1991 a year. The latest modification was the T-80BV tank, adopted by the Soviet army in the 1985 year. MBT T-80BVM - a new version of the modernization of the tank, developed in Omsk.

The machine, which has undergone a thorough modernization, is equipped with an 125-mm gun, which has the ability to fire guided missiles, a multi-channel sight, a modified gas turbine engine with 1250 horsepower, an arms stabilizer and a driver’s observation device. The tank is protected from fire by a complex of modular dynamic protection and an anti-cumulative lattice screen.

The decision to reactivate a part of the T-80B tanks in reserve warehouses and their modernization was made by the Ministry of Defense in 2016. The modernized tanks go into service with the units deployed in the North and the Far East.

    The last version adopted for service was the modification of the T-80U (Omsk) and T-80UD (Kharkov).

          If this is the T-80BV, then this is the GTD-1000TF engine (1100 hp), and without an auxiliary power plant, which allowed all the mechanisms of the tank to work without starting the main engine, saving the engine's service life and a lot of fuel. And the air intake into the engine is not at the level of the turret roof, but behind the turret, in the hull. That is, in a place less protected from dust.

            Well, I really won't. Consumption of GTD-1000TF tank T-80B / BV 70 liters per hour when working on site. GTA-18 consumption - 60 per hour.
            The savings are not very big. The main thing here is saving the resource of the main engine.

              More than once I came across statements that the T-80 with the APU, in terms of fuel consumption, is comparable to the T-72 (meaning, fuel consumption on the march + fuel consumption when the tank is in the position where the T-72 drives its main engine, and the T- 80 - APU).

              That's her ?:

          At best, the R-173 was replaced with the R-168.
          That's the whole "modernization".
          Or even it was meant that the T-80BV is a modernized T-80B.

          and so redundant
          based on even 10 T-80BV tanks,
          if a battalion of marines from 4 companies of 9 BMP-3F = 36 BMP-3
          2 BDK: 1 Project 775, and 1 Project 1171
          the landing usually goes along the front of 2 km of the coast - no more (!)
          overlaps already at least 2 times
          10 guns 125 mm
          36 guns 100 mm
          36 automatic cannons 30 mm
          per 1 km of coastline: 5 125-mm cannons, 18 100-mm launchers, 18 30-mm assault rifles
          it will not seem to anyone
          it will be clear and understandable if you draw a fire map - there are no opponents equal to us for us

            Simple arithmetic will not help here, the trunks must be counted after going ashore.

        Yes, this is not even a battalion kit (31 vehicles). I don’t know how they will be distributed, there is a tank battalion in the 155 Marine Brigade and a tank company in the 40 Marine Brigade. Reminds of an old joke about how the lieutenant was distributing new tanks.

          What to distribute there? We have already written that there will be a company for the T-80. They gave me the materiel.
          True, they wrote that there would be a separate tank company. Apparently not in the battalion.

          Before that, there were also deliveries of 10 tanks to both formations .. The article says about this. One now has a battalion without a commander's tank. And in the second company. Although there are usually 13 tanks in a separate company. 4 in a platoon, not 3. But now everything is relative. For example, in the Serdyukov Omsb brigade, there were 4 companies of 10 tanks + 1 commander. And that 41. With the arrival of Shoigu, there were 3 companies of 13 + 1 commander. Total - 40. smile
