Armored fighting vehicles and aviation. It would seem that there may be something in common between them? In fact, there are many more points of contact than might seem at first glance.
In the 70s, a tank was adopted, aviation specialists were involved in the development of a fundamentally new tank engine - a gas turbine. This type of engine has already been successfully used in jet aircraft. As a result, the T-80 tank appeared. Comparative tests were conducted in the mid-70s. tanks T-64, T-72 and T-80. How they ended, you will learn from this film.
After the war, armored anti-aircraft self-propelled guns developed in the USSR. Their main task is to fight the enemy’s air attack weapons. Some of them must destroy the aircraft at long distances, and some - to cover the tanks directly above the battlefield (ZSU-37, ZSU-57-2, ZSU "Shilka" and "Tunguska", "Strela-1").
The film presents a range of self-propelled artillery mounts: Carnation, Acacia, Tulip, Hyacinth, Peony, airborne self-propelled gun NONA-S, as well as the Luna tactical missile system.
The film sums up the nearly 100-year-old development of domestic armored combat vehicles: from the first Russian tank MC-1 to the supertanks T-80U and T-90.
At the beginning of the twenty-first century in Russia, in addition to modern tanks, there are infantry fighting vehicles (BMP-3), amphibious combat vehicles (BMD-3, BMD-4), armored personnel carriers (BTR-80 and BTR-90), self-propelled artillery guns "NONA SVK "and" Vienna ", SAU" MSTA-S ", combat vehicle support tanks BMPT, airborne self-propelled installation" Sprut "and a number of engineering vehicles: mine trawls, bridge laying, obstacle machines and much more. And at the head of all this armored armada still stand tanks.
In the film, using computer graphics shows various means of protecting combat vehicles from modern weapons: Drozd, Arena, Blind systems, dynamic protection, modern disguises.
