India will buy ammunition for tanks from Russia

India signed an agreement with Russia on the purchase of 66 thousand armor-piercing sub-caliber ammunition "Mango" for tank 125 mm cannons, which are equipped with T-90 tanks. This was reported by the Press Trust of India news agency.


The cost of the agreement is estimated at 26 billion rupees (419 million dollars). Previously, it was approved by the Cabinet of Ministers of the Government of India in accordance with the necessary procedures.

The agreement also provides for the subsequent production of these ammunition under license in India. The Office will take care of it armory factories OFB (Ordnance Factory Board).

The need to purchase the Ministry of Defense explained the acute shortage of tank ammunition from the Indian armed forces.

    The main thing is that the Russian military should not go to the detriment of ammunition. It is necessary to develop power.

        And what will Armata have a different caliber? I doubt it. 125 mm is our caliber. In my opinion, the caliber of 120 mm is more widespread throughout the world. So you have to buy from the gun manufacturer. Neighbors from the northeast could sell cheaper, but ...

          Israel entered the market with the offer of 125-mm tank ammunition with an eye on the tank fleet of India.
          At Defexpo 2012, Israeli company IMI introduced a multi-purpose tracer (HE-MP-T - High-Explosive Multi-Purpose Tracered) M710 and armor-piercing shell MK-2 (APFSDS-T - Armor Piercing, fin Stabilized, Discarding Sabot-Tracer).
          And the purchase by India of "Mango", as I understand it, from a series of contracts for the supply of tank and artillery ammunition, signed at the exhibition "Technologies in Engineering 2012".

        And then .. think about sales.

          In general, my opinion is that armature, C-400,500 and the latest types of weapons cannot be sold, even if you fully equip your troops with them. You can sell them through 10. I’m pretty sure that they will sell the armature, even if not immediately, but they will sell 2-4 in a year. History with the intention to sell SU-2016 to China in 35 confirms my concerns.

        In the USSR and Russia, several types of BOPs are widely known, created at different times and having their own names that arose from the name / code of R&D. The BOPS are listed below in chronological order from old to new. The device and body material of BOPS are briefly indicated:

        "Hairpin" 3BM22 - a small tungsten carbide core in the head of a steel body (1976);
        “Nadfil-2” 3BM30 - uranium alloy (1982);
        Nadezhda 3BM27 - a small tungsten alloy core in the tail of a steel body (1983);
        "Vant" 3BM32 - a monolithic body of uranium alloy (1985);
        "Mango" 3БМ42 - two elongated tungsten alloy cores in a steel body shirt (1986);
        “Lead” 3BM48 - monolithic body made of uranium alloy (1991);
        Anker 3BM39 (1990s);
        "Pattern" 3BM44 M? - advanced alloy (details unknown) (1997); perhaps this BOPS is called "Projectile of increased power";
        "Lead-2" - judging by the index, a modified shell with a uranium core (details unknown).

        Yes.
        And the future lies behind them.
        The crowbar will also be dispersed at high speed:
        - "Initial" for cannon shots.
        - "Flight" for ATGM.

        Metal physics for the core and chemistry for fuel (the same HMV) are already coming to the fore.

        And about the crowbar ...
        I have been saying for a long time that the most terrible anti-tank weapon is a simple 2C5 "Hyacinth" blank. It will stop ANY modern and promising tank.
        With the same 152mm caliber, the 2S5 is much more powerful than the 2S19 in direct fire, because The Hyacinth's ammunition is unique and fits only her one - they are ... elongated.
        Himself, as a tanker, I’m afraid of this self-propelled gun ... and more than abrashka, leo and carrots ...

      Why does he need unitary ammunition? Do you seriously admit that Russia will begin to make new shells for the armament, and will send a gigantic supply of old cartridges to the landfill? Uninhabited fighting compartment allows to use a unitary charge on armatures, but for what? Firstly, you have to increase the free zone behind the breech of the gun by the length of the charge (the cartridge will be longer). Secondly, after the current shots in the barrel, a compact pallet remains, the rest burns out, it is easier and faster to remove it when reloading than a long sleeve (the bullet glued to the combustible sleeve exists only in handguns and is never accepted for service). The complexity of loading a unitary cartridge into the machine (it is stupidly heavier and larger), the inconvenience of storage (the same OBPS will never tear during storage, and with the maintenance of tank guided missiles necessary during storage, you do not need to be protected from accidentally undermining their expelling charges).
      A separate shot for a tank gives much more opportunities for its modernization, which is why there are more of our different shots than NATO ones (there is the possibility of separately upgrading charges and shells).
      I gave it offhand. Increase the rate of fire of the tank by 2-3 rounds per minute with an ammunition load of 20-30 shells in the AZ, while receiving a bunch of problems and the inability to use old ammunition ...

      Armata plans to return to unitary ammunition.

      And in more detail, please ...

    So the Hindus still “gave birth” to the contract for ammunition ...
    Well, well.
    They procrastinated this topic from 2012 of the year ... everyone tried to establish their own production.
    So - it didn’t work out.

    The 3VBM17 (3VBM17M) "Mango" round with the 3BM42 (3BM42M) armor-piercing sub-caliber projectile is no longer young, it has been produced since 1986.
    But this is the most reliable "crowbar" of ... simple ammunition that "fit" into a standard AZ.
    Other shots?
    - shots of increased power ZVBM22 with BPS ZBM59 "Lead-1" and ZVBM2 with BPS ZBMb0 "Lead-2" with a uranium core. But this is not a barrier to export. The fact is that these are elongated ammunition. It is necessary to increase the length of the AZ cells to 640mm to use Lead.
    - The 3BM39 "Anker" was developed with an aspect ratio of more than 20. This is a uranium OBPS monoblock for a 2A66 high ballistic cannon for the failed Object 187 (unfortunately). Those. "Anker" simply does not fit into the standard AZ.

    To ensure the use of new BPS, the loader is undergoing refinement. Changes are made to the mechanism of lifting the cassettes, the rotating conveyor, the drive of the conveyor and its crankcase, the receiving tray of the autoloader and the cartridge itself are being improved.
    This is a rather time-consuming process, and since the Indians decided to buy Mango, then they did not begin to modernize their tank fleet ...
    But that is their decision. The master is the master.

    -------------------------
    ps And also for new ammunition, the 2A46M-5 gun is desirable.

    For your information:
    In the RS of the Russian Federation, such changes (AZ) were made at the T-72BA and are declared for the modernization of the T-72Б3.

      Here is a schematic designation of the necessary rework of the AZ for the use of longer "crowbars" in comparison with the "Mango":

      This is also ARCHIVAL for the modernization of our tank fleet:

        Good day, Eugene.

        They were made for promising tanks and ... within reasonable limits of the possible modernization of existing AZs.
        About MH - not in the know.

        ------------------
        By article:
        I would like to stress once again that the purchase of Mango is a very serious decision for India.
        For several years they fought with the creation of their own "crowbar" and were tormented by the issue of modernizing the AZ of their T-72 and T-90.
        The Indians have chosen - "Mango".
        The purchase issue was almost resolved in the 2012 year and was already sucked up at the TVM-2012 exhibition, but ... they were delayed with the adoption of the final decision until now.
        Not so simple.

        These BOPS did at all. It turned out that a sub-caliber projectile with an elongated bow could break through a tank’s DZ without triggering a DZ charge, after further firing the shots, it turned out that not one of the shortest new OBPS could fit into the T-72’s automatic loader, since it didn’t work, the shells lengthened to the calculated optimum ...

    The need to purchase the Ministry of Defense explained the acute shortage of tank ammunition from the Indian armed forces.


    They told them to take more bullets from our dash, while you shoot, your appetite and excitement will appear.

      Grew up, they rarely shoot "crowbars" at school (finally, they almost never shoot), they thoroughly wear out the bore.
      These shells are a strategic reserve for a possible war.

      And the training staff is made with "practical" shells (a real blank, verified in terms of mass and dimensions) in the form of K and HE.

    Pyotr and Mazepa were shooting with cast-iron blanks ... And the BOPS is, "like" such a high-tech arrow, which is released from the cannon, it flies straight and without any homing heads, which break from storage, theoretically capable of covering a tank that is millions of uev ...

    Is BOPS harder than a ballistic missile? And India has been launching them for a long time.

      Simplicity is always more complicated. A correctly made sub-caliber will not break until it decays nafig, and ICBM after three years of combat duty it is not clear where it will fly away ...

    Armata ...? First, you need to fully equip your units with this new tank.
    And then .. think about sales.


    Well, it’s clear that in about 10 years (an optimistic forecast), then the most things will be thought about.

    Hello, in general, it’s a very correct decision, It always saved the country's finances, Tell me why to reinvent the wheel if they sell a license for its production, It was always like that and we bought it where there was a possibility, It was always like that, And the next step is our own developments and our own ammunition, What can I say India is building up its economic potential, you just look at what is reaching for this deal, Well done is a wise decision and perhaps some vision is not some of our decisions, This is the production of new alloys in metallurgy expansion ins life will force the unequivocal base, The next stage is the development of research and development work, and it is already becoming clear that India is beginning to be famous not only for elephants, but also for many products that are at a high technological and scientific level, all the more so there is a neighbor to be equaled with, This is China , He also doesn’t doze off and is developing very quickly and the pace is simply overwhelming. and envy, China is now showing and setting the development of the entire region and everyone knows who is behind who will fall under the guardianship of China. Without war, therefore, giant attempts are made to keep up,
