Kyiv announced the shipment of another batch of decommissioned T-72A tanks from Belarus to Russia

Belarus removes from storage Tanks T-72A, after which it transfers them to Russia, another echelon with military equipment set off from the Minsk region of Belarus to the Rostov region of Russia. Ukrainian sources suggest that these tanks will soon be in service with Russian army units participating in a "full-scale invasion" of Ukraine.

The Belarusian military removed from storage another batch of T-72A tanks, the equipment was located at the 969th tank reserve base in Urechye, Lyubansky district, Minsk region. According to Kyiv, a total of 24 tanks were included in the batch, they have already been loaded onto platforms and sent by rail to the Rostov region.



According to Ukrainian sources, this is the sixth batch of tanks sent from Belarus to Russia. In total, 94 T-72A tanks and 44 Ural trucks have recently been removed from mothballing, all of them have been sent to Russian territory. It is suggested that the equipment will go into service with new units, including those recruited as part of partial mobilization.

Neither the Russian nor the Belarusian Ministry of Defense comment on the transportation of tanks, now the military of the two countries are busy deploying a united group of the Union State on the territory of Belarus. According to the official data of the Belarusian military department, the Russian military is transferring to the republic about 170 tanks, up to 200 infantry fighting vehicles - armored personnel carriers, about 100 guns and mortars with a caliber of over 100 mm. The group will also include about 9 Russian servicemen.

It turns out that Belarus is sending to Russia the tanks removed from the mothballing supposedly for participation in hostilities, at the same time Russia is transporting its tanks to the republic.

Meanwhile, American intelligence reports that the Russian-Belarusian group is gradually building up forces near the borders of Ukraine, the danger of an invasion from the northern direction is increasing.

      Some kind of absurdity looms. Why drive tanks back and forth?

        Possibly for upgrading. Maybe the Republic of Belarus does not have the capacity and ready-made components for on-site equipment.

          Why modernize the T-72 when there are still enough T-72Bs in storage? The place, probably, is being vacated for equipment newly arriving in the Republic of Belarus. She must be somewhere.

              Duck, the fact is that 72B with a more protected tower are going into modernization. But, if, as they say here, already 72, 72A are going to the troops, then I don’t really understand what is happening

                The opinion that the T-72b suitable for modernization is running out has been circulating for a long time. This also explained the return to service of the T-80BV and their modernization program.

                  Doesn't it occur to you that the T80 is a completely different machine, with other capabilities? However, the diagnosis is disappointing, if so.

                  The return to service of the t-80bv is more likely due to their advantages in terms of gas turbine engines and certain problems in the production of engines of 1130 hp for the t-72b3.

                    I haven’t heard of this, but just look how many of them were returned to service. How many units rearmed from BV to B3 were wiped back in a couple of years. In my opinion, the most reasonable explanation for what is happening can only be a lack of 72s .. Perhaps engines for them, as you say.

                        Well, those who made the decision to withdraw the 80-k to the reserve and unify the park were not completely fools. Well, let me remind you again about Finov.

                          Yes please! Suspension: short torsion bars fixed in the middle of the bottom of the tank, small diameters of road wheels that rotate at a higher angular speed, do not close the sides of the hull, tracks with parallel RMS are used, one track consists of 14 nodes, in sand conditions the service life is minimal. The fact that they were not set to 72 was mistaken. Power block: fuel consumption up to 12 liters per kilometer, three additional barrels are not included in the power system, the failure of any element of the power block requires a complete replacement of the block, repairs can only be carried out at the factory, and the replacement of the power block in the troops was carried out only by the factory brigade, at least in the days of the USSR it was so. Everything is very expensive, and the fuel range is very small, in military trials the value was 247 km. The MZ is very confused by design, it works at a speed no faster than the AZ T-72, when loading it is required to remove the spent pallet from the cassette, the crew is inside the carousel with shells and charges. I remind you about the small diameter of the track roller. There are also questions about the FCS, in particular, the very inconvenient location of the "wind sensor", the rangefinder ring "hangs" on the central square, blocking the video review in the sight. If you remember, about a month ago there was an article about the integrity of the T-80 when compared with the T-72. Everything was interestingly written there, but the moment about firing failures was missed, so there are 36% due to system failures on the T-80, and only 2% due to system failures on the T-72. Other refusals from the actions of the crew. But the crew can be taught, but the system cannot. That article was written from an article in the Bulletin of armored vehicles 1989, number 1, p. 12. You can check, the Bulletin has already been declassified. Have questions - ask. So I wrote a lot.

                      This is explained by the fact that there are from 3000 to 5000 T-80s of various modifications at the storage bases. And most of them with almost zero mileage. It is a sin to scatter such a resource, and even spend money on the disposal of practically new (by resource) machines. Therefore, it was decided to start upgrading the BV to BVM and equip the Arctic direction and the Far East with them. And the choice of their place of service / deployment was precisely because of the possibility of a quick start in the cold.
                      T-72 at the storage bases are now at least 7000 units. , but the modifications there are very different. Modification B will be upgraded to B3 \ B3M, modification A will be restored with repairs and modernization is much more modest. Some tanks can be used as a base for conversion into BMPT-72 (Terminator-2) or TBTR, or simply - refurbishment and commissioning. Different tanks are needed, different tanks are important. Since the T-62M is being returned to service (and this is very good), then there will be a place for the early modifications of the T-72 in the ranks.
                      And there are also up to 4000 T-64s of various modifications at the storage bases. They are not touched yet, but if there is a need, it is possible to revive them. Moreover, the corps of the republics of Donbass have been fighting for such a ninth year. The towers of the Soviet MBTs are interchangeable, so there will be no special problems with them, but when restoring the chassis, you will have to do cannibalism. But 4000 tanks with an almost full resource are worth such an effort ... Of course, if necessary. This is also a very good resource.

                        Everyone talked about 7000 in storage, but it’s not known at all how many of these Bs are suitable for modernization.

                        Here is one more of the short things that surprise - the return of the T-62 to service with the T-72 and a large number of T-80s in storage, plus the T-64. There seems to be plenty to choose from.

                          The network can be found export modernization of the T-72A to the version of "White Eagle" - it was offered and delivered to Latin America and possibly Southeast Asia. "Contact-1" remains there, the sighting system and part of the avionics have been modernized. Now, when removed from storage, such tanks will most likely be subjected to refurbishment and minimal modernization - for the sake of the pace of delivery to the troops.

                          The fact is that the time and money to return to service / upgrade the T-62M need to be a multiple less than for the next generation tanks. The absence of an automatic loader with complex hydraulics and mechanics greatly speeds up and simplifies the process. Repair and maintenance of such tanks in the field is also much simpler and cheaper. Therefore, it is not surprising that the Ministry of Defense remembered such a tank. In addition, there are repair plants sharpened specifically for the repair of these particular machines. After all, now it is important not only the quality of tanks in the ranks, but also their QUANTITY and the pace of their delivery to the troops. Now there is a high probability that the armed forces of the NATO countries will act on the side of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, moreover, officially, having entered the territory of the former Ukraine. Therefore, there should be a LOT of tanks in the standing position, and since we have them, everything that is and is possible must be returned to service.
                          With the T-72, and even more so with the T-80, even without modernization, the hassle of repairing and returning to service is many times greater. but several repair plants, as well as Omsk and Uralvagonzavod, are engaged in their repair and modernization at once.

                But, if, as they say here, already 72, 72A are going to the troops, then I don’t really understand what is happening

                Everything is very simple. Our grouping in Ukraine numbered a little over 100 thousand and there were enough tanks and infantry fighting vehicles. And now 300 thousand will be put into operation, and to create a BTG, a huge amount of armored vehicles, including tanks, is needed. That is why they put into operation everything that is possible and the T-62M and T-72A.
                Ukrainians are doing the same, they are given not only export analogues of the T-72A, the T-72M tanks, but also the T-55, which is much worse than the T-62M, moreover, they throw lightly armored Hummers into battle, and ordinary pickups and jeeps are not at all intended for this.

            Dmitry, there is a lot of incomprehensible here. First, the video shows the North side of the Orsha railway station, and along it the traffic passes in the direction of Smolensk-Minsk, along the South side of Minsk-Smolensk. Probably the video was shot in the opposite direction, so, the usual video editing of the SBU. I have not seen oversized markings, such as those on the tank, on the Belarusian Railway, but everything can be. I assume that these machines could be sent to Borisov for 140 TRZ for modernization. From Urechye to Russia, they could get to Orsha only along a large circle. There the road is easier, Urechye-Osipovichi-Mogilev and further to Fayansovaya. Especially in Urechye, the platform is loaded in an easterly direction, here it is the other way around.

                          Well, what's the point in light tanks, if the concept of MBT is already looming? I am already silent about the fact that the BT comes from the Christie tank, when the topic of wheeled-tracked tanks was still developing. Then, in general, the obsolescence of armored vehicles went faster, as it always happens when a new type of weapon just appears, and you decide to compare something there.
                          If my goal was to overwhelm you, I would have done it at the snap of my fingers, because I wouldn’t take into account, for example, the fact that industrialization had just passed in the USSR and would ask a petty question, but how was the Red Army equipped with cars under Stalin? How many three-ton trucks have we produced, for example? The Germans have an Opel Blitz, is this the norm, but what about us? And we have a lorry, i.e. to transport one mass of goods, the Germans needed one car, and we needed two. And how many modern Russian army took trucks from the national economy, can you tell me?
                          Self-propelled artillery as a class became noticeable at the front only in 1944, and the Germans had complete order with this from the very beginning of the war and they produced many types of various self-propelled guns. In 1944, Germany, having a lot of problems, produced 17 thousand units of armored vehicles, despite the fact that the country is a capitalist country, and therefore the equipment itself was more complicated than Soviet, and, as a result, more expensive.
                          in principle, we didn’t produce such a type of armored vehicles as armored personnel carriers, and we also didn’t have armored tractors, cable layers, no matter how well you and I treated Stalin, the USSR was technologically lagging behind, you are talking about lagging behind the leader from developed countries by 50 -100 years heard? As for technology, somewhere, in the most important areas, like nuclear physics or space, we have taken the lead, but for example, I watched the movie "Following my own course" not so long ago, released in 1974, it is black and white. At the same time, I saw a private pre-war shooting in Germany. This is just one of the illustrations.

                          Now let's get back to the present. What's wrong with using T-62 tanks in the fight against an enemy that is short of armored vehicles, as evidenced by their pickup truck rides? The only drawback that I see is the issue of supply, the gun is different. No one will feel sorry for the motor resources of these tanks, just like the barrels, and it is necessary to dispose of 115-mm shells this way and that, and these tanks are not used to break through enemy defenses, it is rather a means of supporting infantry, and as for the tank’s function of influencing the rear , then what's the difference which tank will hooligan in the rear?

                          There is a difference, just like there is a difference between the T-62 and a pickup truck. And will we compare the firing distance of the T-62 and ATGMs? Any tank can be stung from an ATGM, but the main tank killer is artillery, and a projectile from the same rapier is about the same as a T-72 or a T-62. And newer tanks will be useful to us for battles with a more modern enemy, so they save them.
                          Humanitarian, this is not a purely military task, but as for the bus, well, it’s probably more comfortable, or they removed it for show. In our rear area there are a lot of KAMAZ trucks and Urals riding back and forth.

        a good option ... only Belarusian tanks are being transported to Crimea along the Crimean bridge, you can’t snitch on everyone’s smartphone there, and the enemy clearly understands and knows that it’s not just that tanks are being driven along the railway to Crimea (without any modernization), therefore, near Nikolaev, the troops of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are now concentrating, which are being removed from other directions ... and people are being called to leave Nikolaev ... so the direction of one of the strikes is clear to EVERYONE. In the same western Belarus there is no photo evidence, but almost everyone is aware that there is a considerable group hanging over the "Lviv transit", MI-6 announced three weeks ago that trains to Belarus were packed to capacity with Russian troops, and only three days ago they showed us "arrival of the first train with Russian servicemen." Secrecy from its citizens when the enemy has been in the know for a long time - there is nothing more stupid, so at least we are proud of our Army and believe in its success, because any maneuvers and movements towards the ENEMY are inspiring ... but the silence of the RF Ministry of Defense with dry reports - drive the people in melancholy, and ordinary people begin to exaggerate someone else's information, thrown in by enemies. To squander communication with one's people is for all authorities in the old Russian tradition. For example, I am proud that ours so quickly hung over the "Lviv transit" that even the Clown yelled at the G-7 "put G-7 peacekeepers on the border of Belarus with Ukraine" and the Poles and the Balts moved everything to the border with Belarus, what they had from the troops. The entire Internet is in these photos and videos, and our Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation is holding us for idiots ...

And besides, we are armed with the T-72B and B3M. Yes, and "Urals" that, too, for modernization, or what? Who will modernize the trucks? They are already in storage and in the Armed Forces of the Republic of Belarus at least in one place. So it is quite possible that they will be sent mobilized, if the T-62 is in business again, what can I say. In any case, it’s good if we help, it won’t be superfluous (taking into account the loss of armored vehicles) and how many mobilized are called up.

      Belarus removes T-72A tanks from storage, after which it transfers them to Russia, another echelon with military equipment left the Minsk region of Belarus for the Rostov region of Russia.


      this is a kind of exchange, because in their place Belarus receives new tanks from Russia.
      Why is this being done? .Everything is very simple, namely, the military potential of Belarus must be quickly increased as it becomes the new front line of confrontation with NATO.
      By sending Belarusian equipment to Russia, two problems are solved, namely, it frees up space for new equipment in Belarus, and it immediately receives this newest equipment, since it takes time to modernize and repair its equipment, but it doesn’t exist. Unlike the Ukrainian direction, where this time is still going training of the mobilized, and when this equipment is needed here, the "Belarusian" T-72A, after repair and modernization, will be ready for new military groups from the mobilized.
