The Ukrainians revealed our secret: "boards" were found inside the armor of Russian tanks

In fact, all this nonsense with boards and other lumber has been seething and seething in the Ukrainian, and also partly in our segment of the Internet, since April, if memory serves. It is understandable - just give them a reason, and they will cling like pincers. Therefore, I did not want to pay attention to this nonsense. Nevertheless, surprisingly, even after such a long time, the topic continues to surface in various military communities, so some clarity will still have to be made.

For those who are not in the know, it all started with a video showing a downed Russian tank with its frontal hull assembly torn apart. As a result, an internal armor filler appeared outside, taken by especially gifted individuals for wooden boards, and then it started. Moreover, those “laudatory” epithets addressed to the Russian tank industry, which fell from the side of the “whistleblowers”, it’s even shameful to publish here and cannot be remade into a decent form.




Some wrong boards


Well, if we are guided by the logic of those who announced boards in Russian armor, it turns out that the lion's share of the Ukrainian tank fleet is also equipped with these boards. Suddenly you can find that absolutely everything available in the Armed Forces of Ukraine Tanks T-64, whether it's at least the old "A-shki", even the "Bulats" or T-64BV arr. 2017, are distinguished by a high content of lumber in the armor. This also includes the T-72M / M1 transferred by Western partners. Yes, why be trifles: even the "eighties", including the legendary "Oplot" - with damned boards!

Conspiracy theorists, you're out. Perhaps they are hiding a terrible secret from us that secret sawmills worked for Soviet, and now Russian and Ukrainian tank factories, delivering high-quality wood straight to assembly shops. But if we discard all humor, then, of course, there are no boards. There is armored fiberglass, hiding under the harsh abbreviation STB in domestic specialized literature.

Perhaps everyone has come across this contraption - fiberglass - in their life, since it is easier to name those industries where it is not used. They make everything from it, from the usual printed circuit boards for electronics to even parts for machine tools and insulators. Layers of fiberglass fabric, fastened with a polymer binder, have also found their application in armored vehicles. True, in this case, high-strength grades of this material are used with a density of up to two (and even more) grams per cubic centimeter, which are very problematic to meet somewhere in everyday life.

At the same time, it should be noted that due to the layered structure, thick fiberglass sheets, when they are unrecognizably stained with dirt, soot, and so on, can really be mistaken for a board by a characteristic cut. But this cannot serve as any justification for the nonsense that has been carried on the Internet.

Why is he there?


It should be noted right away that the armored fiberglass in Soviet tanks, inherited both by us and Ukraine, has not been considered an effective material for armor barriers for a long time. The last remnants of relevance were squeezed out of it back in the 80s of the last century, when the most armored serial tanks of the USSR, the T-80U and its modifications, went into production. Nevertheless, he is, as they say, a hundred years old at lunchtime.

In fact, the serial use of fiberglass as an armor component began with the T-64 tank in the 1960s of the last century. The reason for this was the increase in the penetration of armor-piercing shells, especially cumulative ones, which it was no longer possible to oppose with a steel monolith - the mass of the tank would have grown too much. By the way, in the future, there were few chances for steel armor at that time: a 105-mm rifled L7 gun appeared and acquired a whole range of ammunition, which quickly dispersed throughout NATO countries. Yes, and older guns, as the “shell building” developed, they also pulled the parity of armor and shell in their favor.

So the way out in the form of the introduction of non-metallic elements into the protection scheme of the combat vehicle was the only one to maintain its acceptable mass. This element was fiberglass, which was installed exclusively in the upper frontal part of the tank hull, while there were a lot of variations on the towers: from experiments with solid steel and aluminum inserts to corundum, sand (in the T-72 and T-80 modifications) and non-explosive jet armor in the T-72B and T-80U.

By itself, fiberglass does not show any outstanding anti-ballistic properties and works only in combination with steel sheets, where its capabilities are revealed more fully. As an example, here you can just take the T-64, the upper frontal part of the hull of which was a puff cake made of an external steel sheet 80 mm thick, two sheets of fiberglass with a total thickness of 105 mm and a rear retaining steel 20 mm sheet.

With a total thickness of the armored piece of 205 mm (taking into account the angle of inclination of 68 degrees from the vertical, already 547 mm), it showed a good resistance for that time of about 430-450 mm against cumulative and within 330 mm from sub-caliber armor-piercing shells. And all this with a significantly lower mass than all-steel armor with a similar protective ability. To do this, the same T-55 or T-62 had to get fatter in the forehead of the hull more than twice - a gloomy prospect.

Such anti-cumulative indicators were achieved with the participation of fiberglass due to several factors. However, in order not to repeat myself, I will quote from the material I published on another resource:

When breaking through a typical combined barrier, which in our case is the upper frontal part of the T-64 with fiberglass, the following processes occur. Penetrating into the front steel armor plate, the cumulative jet begins to be consumed according to the scenario typical for a steel massif, with a moderate touch of the side walls of the hole for the initial stage of penetration. Deepening, the cumulative jet is more and more exposed to discontinuous effects due to the difference in the velocities of its elements.

Having overcome the steel mass, the head elements of the cumulative jet encounter a fiberglass layer on their way. Since fiberglass has a much lower density than armored steel of medium hardness, the nature of the penetration of a cumulative jet into it also changes somewhat. The flow rate of its head part decreases, the elongation of the jet increases and, as a result, the amplitude of its zigzag movement also increases, the division into fragments and the density of contact with the edges of the hole increase. As a result, the cumulative jet, having entered a medium with a lower density, begins to break more intensively into fragments. An additional jet dampening factor is the fragments of fiberglass in the channel of the hole, crossing the line of the cumulative jet and providing an additional discontinuous effect.

At the end of the path, the fragments of the jet meet the rear retaining armor plate, which acts as a trapping screen, which they are not able to break through.

In fact, fiberglass in this type of armor barriers is a more effective replacement for empty space, as in spaced armor.

As for the effectiveness of fiberglass against sub-caliber projectiles, in that puff cake it rather performed the function of a kind of denormalizer of short hard-alloy cores, bending their trajectory in the armor towards parallel with the slope of the armor plates with all the ensuing consequences in the form of destruction of the striker under the action of deforming forces. However, sometimes a strange phenomenon also happened - a core rebound from one of the fiberglass sheets, but this is rather an exception to the rule. For more modern shells, textolite, including also denormalization, does not work.

Not only "sixty-four"


As a matter of fact, starting from the T-64, fiberglass was firmly registered in Soviet tanks for many decades, although its further use required significant changes in the design of the armor. Nevertheless, a similar scheme, albeit with some discrepancy in the thickness of the sheets and millimeters of anti-shell equivalents, was present in the early versions of the T-72 - for example, exported and licensed in other countries T-72M / M1, intended for the domestic consumer of the T-72A , as well as the first modifications of the T-80 tanks.

However, the armor penetration of shells was steadily growing, and the physical properties of ammunition - sub-caliber shells - also changed, which forced them to look for new protection options. But they were not going to refuse fiberglass (as fiberglass is often called). Those machines that had already been produced and were in service were subject to revision: an additional steel plate was simply welded onto the upper frontal part of the hull. For the T-80 and T-64 series, its thickness was 30 mm, and for the T-72 - 16 mm. The new ones, which is quite logical, had already updated protective structures.

So, closer to the mid-1980s, the T-64B (BV) tanks with improved frontal hull armor, which was built according to the “steel + fiberglass + steel + fiberglass + steel” scheme, went into production. Such a five-layer composite, due to the redistribution of thicknesses and differences in the densities of materials, gave a significant increase in resistance, primarily against sub-caliber projectiles, which increased, according to various estimates, to 480-500 mm. From cumulative ammunition, the figures are approximately the same as from sub-caliber ones, but with the use of the Kontakt mounted dynamic protection complex, resistance could even exceed 800 mm.

Yes, the T-80U also has these fiberglass "boards"
Yes, the T-80U also has these fiberglass "boards"

A similar principle of layering was used in the construction of frontal protection and the most protected serial tank of the USSR - T-80U / UD and its modifications. True, the figures there are much higher than those of the modified "sixty-fours". They even exceed those of foreign-made cars of the 80s. Including "Leopards 2" and the British "Challengers".

In general, the legendary Ukrainian "Oplot" can also be attributed here, since it is a modified version of the T-80UD. Although he also has a difference: one layer of textolite from the frontal armored part of the hull was torn out and replaced with a layer of dynamic protection "Doublet".

So yes, "boards" - that's the thing. Everywhere they were crammed, and they also work on both sides of the conflict. However, we have tanks that can surprise: the T-72B/B1 and their upgraded version, the T-72B3, equipped with non-explosive reactive (semi-active) armor in the hull and turret. Since it contains rubber-like components, it’s scary to even imagine what kind of “sensation” when it is discovered, storytellers about lumber in Russian tanks will inflate.

            They forgot to mention that not each plant separately was engaged in the development of tank protection, but one enterprise (“Scientific Research Institute of Steel”) for all factories of armored vehicles.

            Once upon a time (under Yeltsin and Grachev) the question of what the future T-90 would be was decided. The option was chosen between objects 187 and 188. As Grachev later said, “they chose cheaper (187 came out at a price slightly lower than the T-80, and 188 was somewhere, one and a half times cheaper).

    These are exactly boards, sawn timber from coniferous trees. I claim to be an expert in this field.

    The idea for counteracting BOPS: the armor under the DZ is covered with a kind of two-layer "scale" (the top is relatively soft, the bottom is relatively hard). The key word is loosely fixed, literally four tacks in the corners. The mechanism is this - BOPS, getting into the "chehuinka", tears it off the mount and slides along with it along the armor plate, receiving a moment of rotation and changing the optimal entry angle to a strongly non-optimal one.
    Specialists, don't throw dirty socks at me, this is just mind gymnastics from an already middle-aged engineer with a rich imagination and a good education.

      You forgot to mention that there is a thin layer of sunflower oil on the bottom to make the flake glide better. And since it takes a lot, then it disappears from stores and rises in price!

    There is already a video on YouTube where a Ukrainian tanker shows "rubber" in dz blocks.

    And even if there were boards?
    In WW1 and even WW2, battleships had multi-layered armor with a bottom layer of wood. Usually used teak. The wood was later replaced with concrete.

      On ships, the plates of the armor belt were installed on a teak wooden gasket to absorb impact on the hull structures.

    Composite and multi-layer armor protection of the most exposed parts of the armored personnel carrier has long been replaced by "solid" all over the world. This explains its external "bulkyness". This is how it looks and works

      There are a lot of simulations on YouTube, where it is shown in detail what and how happens with all combinations of armor and shells, including any exotic.

    To be honest, I don’t know what kind of boiling we are talking about, since I generally hear about it from you for the first time. Doesn't really mean boiled.

    Why not use a magnetic field to protect armor?

    so in Russia and hypersonic missiles of the "wrong system"! laughing fly and hit the right target.
    ideally it would be like a mattress, but alas, the Russians are used to finishing everything to the end.

    Let them at least find cotton wool. The main thing is that our armor is the best in the world!

    By the way, in the latest issue of the "large-caliber commotion" on YouTube, it was clearly seen that even the komul jet left its trajectory and turned up, without breaking through the high-pressure line.

    It's stupid to not use fiberglass. The crux of the matter is in a hot metal jet. So it just needs to be cooled down. It is enough to pour a bunch of metal balls. The jet will penetrate this layer without question, flowing around the balls and losing temperature. Everything ... the article is about nothing.

    By the way, when burning, the board turns into carbon, and it has a MELTING TEMPERATURE of 3500 degrees. WITH.
