Department of Defense continues to re-equip Marine Corps units, strengthening them tanks T-80. According to the press service of the military department, a new tank unit has been formed in the Primorsky Marine Corps of the Pacific Fleet.

The new tank battalion of the Pacific Fleet Marine Corps was equipped with modernized T-80BV tanks. The unit will be deployed in the Primorsky Territory, the tankers have already begun coordination and combat training. In total, the battalion received more than 30 tanks that have undergone modernization; delivery dates have not been announced. It is noted that the equipment entered the new part under the state defense order as part of the rearmament program for modern weapons.

That the Pacific Marine Corps fleet began to re-equip with new T-80BV tanks, removing various modifications from T-72 units and formations, it became known in 2019. The rearmament of the Marines began almost simultaneously with the motorized rifle units of the Eastern Military District. The Ministry of Defense decided that the modernized T-80BV tanks are best suited for the conditions of the Far East and North.

The T-80B tank and its modifications were produced at Omsktransmash JSC from 1979 to 1991. The last modification was the T-80BV tank, which was adopted by the Soviet army in 1985. Currently, the T-80 is being upgraded to the level of the T-80BVM, this year the troops should receive about 80 upgraded tanks.

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.

    Modernization is good, yes, great, but what is the state of the Omsk Tank Plant, is it still capable of producing new vehicles?

        Interestingly, modernization options are offered for the T-55 tank, while the T-62 is not. Why?

      Omsk plant is now part of UVZ (Tagil still gobbled up a competitor smile ). And now he is modernizing the T-80 and T-72.

      Well, as they say, the Omsk people will be engaged in the modernization of tanks, and UVZ will eventually be redesigned for the modernization and production of T-90M and T-14

    Article for the sake of article. Firstly, in the photo there is a tank that arrived in the Khabarovsk Territory, and secondly, the last modification of the tank, not counting the T - 80BVM, is
    T - 80U and its derivatives,
    thirdly, the Vladivostok marines received the 80 T - 1985BV from the western regions of the country, some of them, albeit small, already have a number of critical malfunctions that require military repair.

    I do not know how much the colors are distorted in the computer, but the color of this T-80BVM from the photo reminds me of PanzerGrau recourse

      Compared to the tank in this photo, the tank in the title photo is actually modernized.

      In my opinion, the T-80BV tanks, after modernization similar to the T-73B3M, still have great potential, especially for the troops operating in the north of Russia. For relatively little money, you can get a decent tank that poses a threat to the overwhelming majority of tanks of potential opponents.
      Of course, it would be optimal to replace the turret with the one in the T-90M, but this would definitely increase the cost of upgrading the vehicle.

        It will not work: the fighting compartment is formed in different ways. On the T-80, the automatic loading of the cabin-type cannon (attached to the tower), on the T-72-90, its part (conveyor) is attached to the bottom of the tank, which is why the shape of the bottom is different (more rigid).

          I wrote about a kind of "universal turret" created in the mid-1980s as part of the Improvement-72B design and development project for the modernized T-72, T-80 tanks, which in its versions later ended up in the "Object 187", T-90 or T-84



          The tower from this study was installed by the Ukrainians on the T-84 or "Oplot", so it is possible to mount it on the T-80.

    These are the coastal defense troops. There, for all tasks, you do not need to have a "super modern" tank. Until the early 2000s, the T62 was also there - therefore, the T 80bv is not bad for the task of coastal defense. Nobody is going to land in the Far East

      The 55th Marine Division in the tank regiment was armed with a T-54 battalion and a PT-76 battalion. Then they transferred to a state with three military units and promised to transfer the T-72 from the Far East Military District. As a result, they suffered for a year without a loader, the tanks did not give and the regiment was reorganized into a battalion. But the PT-76 did not last long either. Now this is the second part of the Marlison Ballet. By the way, the Marines are not VOKHR and they have other tasks. And the coastal defense units at the Pacific Fleet are only being formed and not in Primorye.

        That is, there were only two battalions in the tank regiment?
        The staff of the division is just very interesting.

      It just indicates the armament of the coastal defense marines

      It's just that today the marines are organizationally included in the coastal troops.
      Coastal troops include 2 types of troops: coastal missile and artillery troops and marines.

      At the same time, the Coastal Forces of the Northern Fleet and the Baltic Fleet have a third branch of the military that is not mentioned on the website of the Ministry of Defense - the ground forces. More precisely, the former corps, divisions, brigades and regiments of the ground forces and the Air Force (air defense), transferred to the Navy in the course of reforming the defense system of the Kaliningrad region and the northern territories of the Russian Federation. So they just represent the classic Coastal Forces.

    The T-80BVM modification is now firmly associated with the demonstration shooting at Army 2020.

    In 1990, the 77th RBS from Arkhangelsk relocated our battalion to the Murmansk region. and transferred to the Marine Corps (though not immediately, after the 1st Chechen). There was a separate TB on 80s, then subordinated to the Marine Corps Brigade. We had 5 companies, 2 training platoons, the rest were in storage. On training and drove and shot, BP was strong
