The Ministry of Defense is interested in the speedy equipping of Russian tanks KAZ "Arena-M"

Work continues on the modernization of various modifications of Russian tanks. Moreover, this is happening against the backdrop of complaints from Ukrainian officials about the fact that Russia "has not lost its production potential, despite numerous sanctions, and today it produces several dozen tanks a day."

According to the press service of "Rostec", the Ministry of Defense expresses interest in the speedy equipping of Russian tanks KAZ "Arena-M" from the holding "High Precision Systems". These are active protection systems with which it is planned to equip, first of all, the T-80BVM and T-90M Proryv tanks.



KAZ "Arena-M" is able to protect the tank both from shells and anti-tank grenades, and from guided missiles.

It was noted that the discussion on arming the KAZ "Arena-M" tanks T-72B3 and T-72B3M is at the final stage.

KAZ "Arena-M" special directional munitions are placed along the perimeter of the tower and have the possibility of all-round protection of the tank from weapons fired at it. Also, the active protection complex includes a multifunctional radar with a high degree of noise immunity. It is also capable of working when the enemy tries to use electronic warfare systems. The station detects flying targets and transmits a signal for the narrowly targeted action of special ammunition.

      Then there will be the final stage, then the final stage of CHATTER, and only then the first stage of decision-making will begin.
      At least 30% of officials should be reduced, including officials of the Ministry of Defense.

          "No, they need to be planted in the T-62 ..."
          Naive righteous anger....
          By the way, it’s much safer to “sit down” in the new modernized T-62M “wrapped from head to toe” in DZ than in a 72-deuce or T-80BVM, stripped “like sticky” in battles, where half of the DZ containers, screens, etc. will be missing.
          What about KAZ. Need to equip. Certainly. But the main question is: is there a "boy"? Those. is there a reliable KAZ that remains operational after shelling from small arms, hit by fragments, small-caliber artillery shells.
          Or an expensive display system?
          I would like to believe that Arenv M is such a KAZ. God bless. But any system in itself is not a panacea. Only a combination of main armor, remote sensing, grilles, camouflage systems, maneuverability, good visibility and KAZ, among other things, gives a real increase in security.

            about the main question: is there a "boy"? Those. is there a reliable KAZ that remains operational after shelling from small arms, hit by fragments, small-caliber artillery shells.

            The practice of SVO shows that tanks are destroyed by ATGMs from ambushes. Until the moment of defeat, no one fires at the tank from riflemen and small-caliber artillery. In general, a far-fetched argument.

        Yep, they shortened it. Not a single full-time employee who is engaged in the construction of shipyards and shipyards, and we are already two freelancers ... I think the same is true in other industry departments. 1 people for the entire shipbuilding industry. I don’t leave work before 2 pm, and there is almost no time to do work, we only have time to write certificates and replies ... And then people ask why factories are built so badly and no one controls the waste of money ...
        But because they were downsizing ... There is no one to work ... And there should only be at least 2 officials for each shipyard or a plant / research institute there, we have about 100 subs, so only 200 employees are needed in my department, well, okay , some related, some half-dead, but for normal work you need at least 15-20 people ... To cover at least the main enterprises of the industry ...
        And ideally, yes, 2 employees for each subdivision (well, some can be combined), that is, there should be 100 people in the department, so that there is, firstly, succession, and secondly, people not only sat in the office, but could go to objects, get acquainted with them ... That is, for good, only in the Ministry of Industry and Trade it is necessary to add 1000 people precisely to lower positions.
        The country needs rockets, but there is no one and no time to work with enterprises, they have been reduced.
        PS I only visit enterprises on vacation on my own initiative, only management goes on business trips. We are building factories that have only been seen in the picture...

      Having studied and analyzed the use of anti-tank weapons by the enemy, our Defense Ministry made the right decision. Probably in a week all tanks with KAZ will be, and in another week BMPs and armored personnel carriers.

        And let's have fun with KAZ "Standard"?
        The installation of a promising KAZ ("Standart") provided protection against all types of anti-tank weapons - BPS, armor-piercing cumulative projectiles, ATGMs, including those attacking from above, RPGs and submunitions. Probability of protection against ATGMs; RPG, KS and BPS were 0,8, 0,7 and 0,5, respectively. The action of KAZ within the frontal projection is double, in other areas it is single.

        I'll hint a little ... "buckshot shelling" due to what happens? as a result of the detonation of fired ammunition with buckshot, right? detonation produces a shock wave, right? do you doubt that the shock wave will change the position of the crowbar in space? or do you assume that the penetrating power of the crowbar is the same regardless of whether it hit the target in a normal, stabilized state, or flew sideways destabilized by a shock wave?

      If the protection system is not more expensive than the tank. Although the crew is more important.

      And where were you so smart before? Biathlon festivals and parades with self-propelled models of the Armata? Been wildly busy cutting the budget? The wives of Shoigu's deputies and sons-in-law are rummaging through enemy Courchevels, why?
      Why haven't the thieves of the military budget Chemezov and Shoigu been shot at the Kremlin Wall yet?

      The Ministry of Defense expresses interest in the speedy equipping of Russian tanks KAZ "Arena-M" from the holding "High-precision complexes"
      Strange wording. Lack of specifics - either a PR move covering tender places in case of disruption of work, or calming down the so-called. public opinion due to the unavailability (underdevelopment) of the system and the delay in the timing of its implementation.

      I have no doubt that in the comments everyone kicked MO for its slowness. All the great managers / commanders ...
      However, the technical aspect is completely incomprehensible. Did the Arena confirm the declared characteristics during tests, how much time is needed for improvements, how much time is needed to start production, what are the problems in integration into the tank (for example, the APU is needed), etc.

      If KAZ is issued to at least one tank battalion, the effect will be like the appearance of HIMARS at the front. Ukrainians will need to rebuild tactics. In general, the very fact that tanks are coming at you, and you can’t do anything with them, will greatly affect the infantry of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

      The first KAZ was created in the USSR. A small series of KAZ "Drozd" in the USSR is installed on the T-55. Then the Gobi came to power. EBN etc. The developments and the KAZ series were buried for a long time with everything else. About "Arena-M", look at the advertising booklets of arms exhibitions over the past 10-15 years and you will see this KAZ. And why it is not in the series, like other new designs, is a question for the Moscow Region and the military-industrial complex. And finally, we have already heard about the KAZ series more than once, but so far the serial production of KAZ is only in Israel.

      It seems that the author took the news out of a dark corner of a dusty closet and threw it on the fan. This Arena is XNUMX years old at lunchtime and there is talk of equipping tanks with it for the same amount of time.

      Kaz was developed a long time ago. It is strange that it is still not on the tanks of the Russian Federation
