The Czech Republic will modernize a batch of T-72 tanks purchased for Ukraine in one of the African countries

Ukraine next year will receive 30 more tanks T-72 upgraded at Excalibur Army enterprises in the Czech Republic. The work will be carried out as part of an option for 30 additional tanks to the ninety already purchased, which the United States and the Netherlands paid for Ukraine.


Additional armored vehicles in very poor condition were purchased from one of the African countries, which agreed to transfer them to Ukraine for a fee, of course. The name of the country is not given. In general, the Excalibur Army buys former Soviet tanks around the world, modernizes them and sells them to needy armies, in particular Ukraine. Pays for this entire US banquet.

The first five units of tanks for Ukraine will be received next week, we want to deliver 18 units before the end of the year

- said the Excalibur Army.

It takes about 66 days to upgrade one tank, but the technology has already been worked out and takes much less time. In the course of the ongoing work, the tank is completely dismantled, after which almost everything is changed, as a result, in fact, getting a new vehicle with dynamic armor, modern devices and means of communication. The tank is being upgraded to the Avenger version, supposedly a new Czech upgrade of the T-72 tank, making it comparable to 3rd generation tanks. NATO standard communications, GPS, thermal imagers, etc. are installed there. in general, all the same T-72M1, but received a little upgrade.

The first 90 T-72 tanks that the Czech Republic is modernizing will be taken from the storage of the Czech army, and the work will be paid for by the United States and the Netherlands, each country for 45 tanks. The first batch of modernized vehicles should go into service with the Armed Forces of Ukraine in December, it is possible that they have already been delivered to Ukraine. All this is served as a supply of tanks from the Netherlands.

    As I have already said, Africa is full of our tanks.
    So they will buy, modernize and give to Ukraine.
    What is not good for us.

      Yeah. Ukrainians are very happy. Even 30 tanks a month is quite decent.

      And if the Americans paid for the upgrade to the Scarab level, then it would probably be a T-90 level tank.

      It can be said that the territories are being cleaned from the equipment of the USSR-Russia and are preparing for the supply of equipment from the United States there. Cool move! Redemption of junk and supply of new on credit! That's how to clear and prepare sales markets!

          Well, here's the story to know. Actually, it's not that free.
          Natural resources from there received both a part and were paid for with money.
          To say that it was completely at a loss is wrong.
          By the way, we are now returning to Africa and it greatly facilitates the fact that they remember us there and treat us well.
          Debts were forgiven under Gorby and Yeltsin. Although, as far as I remember, African countries were ready to pay off part of their debts with resources and money.
          Under Yeltsin, in my opinion, there was a corrupt one, there was a scheme.
          It seems like the debts were officially written off, but on the condition that 15-20 percent of the debt was secretly transferred to dummy accounts.
          It was beneficial for the Africans, and it is clear who enriched themselves at the expense of Russia.
          But this did not work with India and there was a scandal.
          The Hindus declared that they would officially pay off the entire debt and would not participate in any murky schemes.
          The fact that Morocco wants to put something is not the fault of the communists, but the fault of those who destroyed the USSR, and now there is not enough strength and will to punish the Moroccans.

      Yeah, they lent and then wrote off the debts. Now they will also be sent to fight against us. And we still supply grain to Africa for free, and they sell the tanks donated by us so that they fight against us. Where is the logic ?

        Were the debts written off in the 2000s? I remember that the Tsar's debts were returned in the 2000s, although no one asked, and did these billions returned to the enemies go to finance actions against the Russian Federation?

        Well, you are wrong. There were 8 tank divisions in the BVO, plus tank regiments and tank battalions of 2 motorized rifle divisions, plus a training tank division, which formed another tank division. This is not counting the Tank Reserve Base and the reserve tank division in Brest .. Now there are fewer, something was cut under the Paris Treaty, something was sold. but there are one and a half to two thousand.

    All these tanks are dangerous, but Russia could create problems for Ukraine to use them. We need to work on the creation of heavy ballistic missiles to destroy infrastructure. We need to work on drones. Then all the deliveries of equipment will not be felt that way.

      During the years of the Second World War, the Czech industry produced a quarter of the tanks and vehicles of the total number of tanks and vehicles of the Wehrmacht. Then they made good money. Now it's the same. As the saying goes, "to whom is war, and to whom is mother dear."

        So the war is not declared, so whoever wants to, he delivers to him. And if war were declared, then it would be impossible to supply weapons and any supplier country immediately becomes a party to the conflict.

      Who wants to whom, he sells to that. It is forbidden to sell only to warring countries, but since neither Ukraine has declared war on Russia, nor Russia on Ukraine, from a legal point of view, no one violates anything with their supplies. But if war were declared, then it would be forbidden to supply weapons to the warring parties and any suppliers would become parties to the conflict. But apparently no one is going to declare war, as this will create a problem with arms purchases, trade and banking operations.

There are indeed quite a few of our T-72s outside Europe, not everyone is ready to sell them, not all of these tanks are in a combat-ready state, but the West is still buying and modernizing something ...
