Tank Leopard 2A7 +

227
This tank was first shown at the Eurosatory 2010 exhibition of the year by the German company Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW).


Tank Leopard 2A7 +


The updated tank is optimized for use both in conventional combat operations and for operations in the conditions of the city.

The Leopard 2А7 + is an upgrade of the Leopard 2A6, armed with an 120-mm smoothbore Rheinmetall cannon with a barrel length 55 caliber. It is also possible to upgrade the Leopard 2A4 / Leopard 2A5 version with a short 120-mm gun (barrel length 44 caliber) to the latest standard Leopard 2А7 +.

KMW at the exhibition announced that the Leopard 2A7 + is a modular update package that can be optimized to meet the specific needs of users. The version shown on Eurosatory is the top level of the Leopard 2A7 +, which uses all the modernization options, resulting in a combat weight tank is about 67 tons.



The upgrade package includes installation on the roof of the turret of the combat module with a remote control KMW FLW 200 with a machine gun of the 12,7 caliber mm, as well as an 76-mm grenade launcher. To increase survivability (especially from RPGs), additional passive armor was installed along the frontal arc, as well as along the sides of the hull and tower. Together with the main modifications of the changes in the hull and the tower, an additional reservation is placed on the bottom of the hull. Situational awareness is provided through a full review of 360 degrees for all crew members - the commander, gunner and driver, through improved thermal imaging cameras.

To improve the living conditions at high temperatures in the aft tower installed air conditioning system. To provide power for the onboard equipment, an auxiliary power unit of increased power was installed in the right rear of the hull. In the back of the case is equipped with a place to connect infantry phones. If necessary, the tank can be equipped with a blade.

The Leopard 2A7 + upgrade package, together with the extended reservation package, was developed and tested in close collaboration with the German army, which is expected to update at least part of its fleet of 225 Leopard 2A6 and 125 Leopard 2A5 to this standard after resolving the issue of financing. Some sources mention about 150 modernization plans in total. Other members of the Leopard 2 club have also shown interest in the new product.



"... Much more interesting is the second project of German tank builders, positioned as a revolution in the modernization of the OBT. Demonstrated at the Paris salon MBT Revolution was a deeply modernized Leopard 2A4. The main directions of improvements designed to turn the 1985-1992 produced in the modern tank, able to withstand virtually all existing challenges, the following:

- a dramatic improvement in protection, overhead elements covering the entire turret and frontal part of the hull, as well as two-thirds of the side (i.e., fighting compartment) should protect the tank from shots of all types of grenade launchers and above all RPG-7, from mines, improvised land mines, striking elements cluster munitions, OBPS, anti-tank missiles with optical-electronic, infrared and laser guidance systems;

- implementation of the “digital turret” technology, that is, the introduction of modern display tools, network solutions and components into the LMS, allowing tracking of the movement of their troops and enemy forces in real time, all-day observation and aiming devices, providing the crew with an almost all-around view from armor: all this will allow tankmen to reduce the response time to a particular threat;

- improving the characteristics of the SLA, so that the tank could hit targets with the very first shot, especially in motion;

- the introduction of a “commander” brake into the design of the machine, which allows the senior crew member to stop the tank from his workplace if necessary: ​​this function is positioned as very useful when moving a multi-ton mastodon through the city streets, largely depriving him of the well-known awkwardness of the elephant a china shop;



- introduction to the tank ammunition modern shells;

- equipping the machine with a modern, stabilized, remotely controlled combat module of auxiliary armament;

- the use of a communications system that allows the crew to exchange information with the surrounding infantry;

- introduction into the design of an auxiliary power unit, which supplies electricity to numerous electronic systems without the need to turn on the main engine: this not only saves the service life, but also reduces the thermal and acoustic visibility of the machine;

- installation of equipment designed to incorporate each main battle tank into a single automated rear support system: this greatly simplifies and speeds up the process of providing tank units with ammunition, fuel and other rear assets.

The set of proposed changes is more interesting than in the case of Leopard 2A7 +. True, it is impossible not to note two features that can be viewed as flaws: obviously, the high cost of alterations and a significant increase in the mass of the tank, getting out of the limits of sixty tons. That is why you should consider the individual elements of the modernization program MBT Revolution in more detail.



One of the most important factors in enhancing the security of a machine is the ROSY smoke screen system developed by Rheinmetall. It not only forms a multispectral smoke cloud on the detected radiation direction in less than 0,6 seconds, but also forms a dynamic smoke “wall” allowing the tank to quickly evade defeat in the event of a massive approach of anti-tank missiles.

The onboard equipment of the tank includes an optoelectronic detection system stabilized in two planes. It consists of a thermal imager, day camera and laser range finder. Necessary to the commander and the gunner to assess the situation data - the goal, the distance to it, the type of ammunition, the state of the system itself - are displayed on the display in the fighting compartment. On it can be displayed as a circular panorama of the battlefield, and its fragment, visible through a normal sight.

Constant circular surveillance of the battlefield, reducing the burden on the commander and gunner, is provided by the information system (SAS). Its functions include the automatic detection and tracking of potential targets. SAS consists of four optical modules (although to reduce the price of a modification, only two of them are allowed) at the corners of the tower, each of which has three lenses with an angle of view of 60 degrees, as well as a high-resolution color camera and night vision components. To reduce the crew’s response time to a threat, information about the SAS target detected can be immediately transmitted to the SLA, primarily to the new-generation Qimek remote combat module located on the roof of the tower.



The composition of the ammunition upgraded tank is proposed to include new types of ammunition. In addition to the DM 11 high-explosive fragmentation projectile already mentioned, this is a feathered sub-caliber projectile with a separating pallet DM-53 (LKE II) 570 mm long, equipped with a tungsten alloy core (adopted for 1997), its modification DM-531 and further development DM 63. The last two munitions are positioned as the first in the world ITS, maintaining constant ballistic characteristics regardless of the ambient temperature. According to the developer, shells are optimized specifically for punching "dual" reactive armor and can hit all types of modern tanks head on. These armor-piercing ammunition can be fired from 120-mm smooth-bore guns made by Rheinmetall with a barrel length of both 44 and 55 calibers.



The onboard equipment complex is integrated into the INIOCHOS ACS of the tactical level, developed by the same Rheinmetall company and allowing to distribute information from the brigade commander to a separate soldier or combat vehicle. This system is used in the armed forces of Greece, Spain, Sweden and Hungary. All of them, with the exception of the sun last, have in their arsenals and various modifications of the Leopard 2.
Thus, the modernization of the tank, carried out under the MBT Revolution project, makes it possible to transform an armored monster, the creation ideology of which provided for conducting tank battles in the image and likeness of the battles of World War II, into a modern machine equally well prepared for both battles with enemy tanks and guerrilla formations possessing only mobile anti-tank weapons. The latest developments in the field of electronics, optics, communications give the crew, instead of very limited in angle of view and range, fragmentary “pictures” in periscopes and sights, a complete panorama of the surrounding space, reflecting the enemy’s location and maneuvers of his unit. The concept of a digital tower actually helps the crew to look through the armor. But it is precisely this property that is one of the most important when creating a new generation tank with an uninhabited turret and armored capsule for the crew, which was conceived by the domestic T-95.

          mertvoe_exo Unfortunately, I don’t remember the mentions where Is shot several 10s of PZ4, but there were cases of KV, but against them were light tanks and it was difficult to compare them of course. But 1 tank Tiger could burn 10 ok tanks and there is a lot of evidence for that. I do not belittle the merits of our grandfathers, I only emphasize that it was damn difficult for them to fight against Germany with such tanks.

            you are probably talking about the Kursk arch, when a t-34 with an old 76-mm cannon could hit new tigers from a distance of only 500 m, and they could shoot our 34s with 1,5 km with impunity, thanks to a powerful 88mm cannon and excellent optics, in addition, all tanks were equipped with good walkie-talkies, so that the controllability of the troops was at the level ...

                Here is an opinion from our own resource what IP really is, in confrontation with the Tiger.http: //topwar.ru/1952-is-protiv-tigra.html
                Is it then worth telling a fairy tale that T3, T4, to some extent, were there against ISa?
                No wonder the Panzerwaffe, for its tankers in the form of instructions for combating IP, issued a recommendation in the form of an order, not to engage in a direct clash with IP, only from ambushes?

                  Tiger N1 was developed in 1941, and operated in 1942, the IS1 was developed in 1943 and was operated the same year. What do you just compare? If and compare IP 1. it’s only with tiger 2 from the Porsche! I’m also a wise guy damn.

                  e. if we compare is 2 with tiger 2 from Henschel, then it turns out that the gun is 88 mlm. flings more than a cannon is 2 122 mlm. Oru ...

            Of course, there is a lot to believe in 100%, neither the Germans, nor the allies, nor the Allies - after all, war.
            As for the metal - the 95 000 tanks were irretrievably lost on the way to Berlin, this is not counting damaged / damaged. In the observable figures, 75 percent of the produced / received was lost.

            A list--

    At Institute 4 in Russian? Are you a philologist?
    Yes, what kind of water? At the beginning of the war, more advanced HF felled German and Czech light tanks. And with dozens of action, too.
    At the end of the war, new, more advanced German tanks had some advantage over our T-34s. And, acting from ambushes, they could also bring them down by dozens. That's just ours were able to establish a mass production, but the Germans, fortunately, could not, the system is not the same.
    Well and an indicator - Germans were actually forbidden to engage in open battle with the IS-2. And acting from an ambush, they had an advantage. Our attack from the ambush was extremely inconvenient, and that was the loss. Like the Germans in 41. That's all there is to say on the topic. Yes, German tanks are good, but they lost technologically. And moral.

    but I remember a story at school, where one light tank (a picture from the memory of t-70) destroyed several medium (i.e. t-3 or t-4 because there were no others) maneuvering between them. and photographs of a 70 square dent captured by the Germans, which one hell knows how many threshed the T-3 and T-4. and it’s the same as comparing a tiger with 88 on the defensive and a t-34 with 76 on the offensive.
    and you know why you are "Unfortunately I do not remember the mention where Is shot several 10-pz4"? because the IS were advancing and the T-4s were defending, with all the consequences (ambush, dug-out, support of their own, etc.), this period was already in the war, when there were no situations with rushing T-4s.
    ps German tanks are good against anyone, but not against Russians - 18 Panfilov proved

      vaddag1 Dear, if you didn’t know for a long time it was proved that there weren’t 18 Panfilov’s, there were 2 companies, since the German troops stood near Moscow, did you have to somehow cheer up your soldiers? So this story appeared, really proven, double-checked. Again, I do not belittle the heroism of Russian soldiers, we are heroes, we saved the world, BUT the mention of 18 Panfilov’s is not correct. I'm not sure that the t-70 could knock out the t4, since its gun did not allow it, the t3 could be. Isa could not knock out by definition, the Wehrmacht war machine was broken, and Isa appeared only at the end of the war. This is a very long debate, very.

        Do not belittle the feat of the Panfilov’s division soldiers by repeating liberal ravings. The T70 armed with a 45 mm cannon could well incite the T3 and T4 under appropriate conditions, do not forget what role the LT had in general.
        IS, a tank with which Wehrmacht tankers were generally forbidden to engage in open combat, only from ambushes.
        A hit from the IS, guaranteed to break and kill any Wehrmacht tank up to T5.a on board from T5 and above.

          1. Once again I tell you, there was no feat - it was a collective myth for raising morale at a critical moment for the country. (There were 2 companies on this site, not 28 people)
          2. The T-70 unfortunately doesn’t have a lot of chances to hit the T-4, the reason is the barrel length is very small, which means that the penetration force at a great distance is again not enough to break through the armor, but the T-4 is enough to get into the T-70 to stop and his range for defeating the t-70 is much higher.
          3. I agree that it was forbidden to enter the open battle with the Isami, since its 122 mm cannon quite confidently hit all existing tanks. True, our command did not always correctly manage them and send them to the city without infantry cover, which was fatal for the Ises.

            Hmm ... there was no feat, and who then stopped the tanks there? Martians? To raise morale, call me the army of the world, where morale rises differently. Even if you assume a liberal point of view that supposedly, Soviet soldiers, they didn’t accomplish feats. Only that of which they ended up in Berlin. Think when you write such things.
            The length of the barrel of a T70 tank gun, but what does it not like?
            The same as on other types, T26, BT5,7, which did not prevent them from using T3 for proper use, and, if necessary, T4.
            The main gun of the PTO-45-ka, up to 42 years old, managed? And what prevented the T70?
            Didn’t you reach the fact that the tank wasn’t created to fight the tank? The T40, T60 were armed with 20mm ShVAK at first, don’t know why?
            And apparently, because of this, you admire the exploits of the German tankmen sitting on the defensive, firing from a place, at tanks attacking, where the observation conditions and correspondingly effective fire are many times worse than those buried in the Tiger tower?
            LT, in the first period of the war, the ersatz, designed to replace the ST and TT, expended for obvious reasons, during the war, the level of supply of troops, from the age of 42 began to shift steadily towards the ST and TT, to the detriment of LT, it is not clear to you

            the length of the barrel of the T70 gun is 46 caliber (45mm), the “normal” T4 is 43-48 caliber (75mm) ... however, it must be guaranteed to hit the side and the stern (30-20mm) with half a thousand

        I don’t much follow the various “revelations” of Soviet myths and in order not to develop this direction in discussion, I will cite an example of a man who proved that German tanks against shit are Russian - Nikolai Vladimir Sirotinin, senior artillery sergeant. Covering the retreat of his regiment, in one battle alone he destroyed 11 tanks, 7 armored vehicles, 57 soldiers and officers of the enemy.
        "Isa could not knock out by definition, the Wehrmacht’s war machine was broken, and the Isa appeared only at the end of the war" - your answer to yours is "Unfortunately I do not remember the references where Is shot several 10-sz4."
        and yet the t-70s pierced the t-4 perfectly, for the thickness of the side for them throughout the war has not changed

          On July 3, 1941, a T-28 tank raided occupied Minsk. The crew included cadets of the school, a senior sergeant with long service and one officer with the rank of major. In the course of movement, this random crew repeatedly entered into battle, destroyed an enemy convoy, a large number of manpower and armored vehicles. On the outskirts of Minsk, the tank was hit. Two died immediately. The fate of the others was different. Witnesses of this raid were residents of the occupied city. After the war, they restored this story ..

            On the night of June 30, 1944, Pavel Rak's tank platoon was tasked with breaking into the city of Borisov, occupied by German troops, engaging in battle and fighting until the main corps forces arrived. Of the four tanks, only the T-34 crew consisting of tank commander Pavel Rak, tank driver Aleksandr Petryaev and tank gunner Alexei Danilov was able to break through the Berezina River to the city of Borisov, Minsk Region, over a mined bridge. The second and third tanks of senior lieutenant Kuznetsov and lieutenant Yunaev were burned before approaching the bridge, and the fourth tank of captain Selin jumped over the bridge to the opposite bank of the river, but was hit and caught fire, the crew died. Then the Germans blew up the bridge across the Berezina
            For 16 hours, the crew fought on the streets of the city. They destroyed a lot of enemy manpower and equipment, which contributed to the liberation of the city on July 1 by Soviet troops. German troops threw several tanks and self-propelled guns against the crew. In an unequal battle, the soldiers died.
            The title of Hero of the Soviet Union was posthumously awarded March 24, 1945. The crew members A. A. Petryaev and A. I. Danilov were also awarded this title.

      not so simple. If you take a tank, in your case the average one, then the weight distribution diagram does not wake up so straight, it wakes up wavy, with an increase under the rollers and a decrease in the gaps between them, and to the maximum it will be somewhere 0,85-0,90, much still depends on the number and location of the rollers. At “Leo” A6 with a weight of 62 tons, the average specific pressure is 0,84, which means it rises to 0,9 under the rollers. "A7" weighs 67 tons, the caterpillar is the same - meaning the specific pressure indicators are higher ...

      APU is behind the bulletproof armor. The batteries are covered with the same armor from the other side.


      Engine compartment (Leopard-2A5). It can be seen that the sides are not very protected. At the expense of a heavy machine gun, I won’t say that the caliber of the 20th is already enough to damage the engine cooling radiators through the rear grill.


      Leopard Tank Tower 2A5. Inside this iron, there should normally be three crew members. There are people who want to discuss on the topic that in large western tanks, much space is assigned to the crew and they are much more comfortable than the tankers in our tanks?
      By the way, it is clear that the tower’s additional protection has no filling, just an angular piece of iron

    Constant all-round observation of the battlefield, reducing the load on the commander and gunner, is provided by the information system (SAS). Its functions include the automatic detection and tracking of potential targets.

      such an “better” could be an automated weapon control system from platoon to company, which allows you to “turn on” the weapons of a second, abandoned but not completely destroyed from one tank (at least shoot the KAZ from a dangerous direction, or put a smoke curtain)

        Judging by the advertising statements, the South Koreans allegedly solved this problem ... right down to the external control of the weapon systems of the abandoned crew, data and target designation from surveillance devices and sighting systems ... though, according to the Koreans, their cars are the best in the world. .. :))))

      Finding a target and correctly classifying its danger is more difficult than getting into the target itself.
      At 7 +, something similar was done, now the word is up to our developers, we have been waiting for something like this for a long time, but it is better - a system of "looking from behind the armor" that is more tenacious to a small caliber.

          Add a multi-camera observation with overlapping viewing angles in the event of the destruction of part of the optics - an excellent machine is obtained.

          The word is ours. I believe that they will do it, plus a backup optical observation line without the participation of electronics, if only they would not pull for a long time.

                      On the T-72B, in my opinion, they didn’t drive it with the installation of DZs, they stuck on whatever came to the tower, what to the screens. On the T-72B with Contact-5, the elements on the tower are set at an even sharper angle than on the T-72AV, on the Slingshot the angle is even greater, on the Burlak they just made one long element.

                        When a shell hits, the “box” is triggered, which means that the armor section is “exposed”, for which they are set at an angle to cover the armor sections with a large number. But this is yesterday - the future, for the "modular" booking

                        The effectiveness of active armor depends on the angle at which the projectile hit it, the sharper it is - the higher the efficiency. Modern active protection protects not only from cumulative, but also reduces the breakdown effect of BOPS (it can break it).

                        "The complex of the first generation" Contact-1 "was implemented in a hinged version. The installation of ZUDT was carried out according to a two-row planar directional scheme, so as to achieve large angles at which the interaction of the plates with the cumulative jet would be most effective. This is because the impact efficiency for a cumulative jet of HUD using throwing platinum depends on the angle of impact of the cumulative jet with them.At the meeting angles (the angle is measured from the normal to the surface of the container) 50-70 degrees is reached the greatest effectiveness of the impact of the movement of the metal plates of the container on the cumulative jet.At the meeting angles of about 30-45 degrees, the impact of the reactive container still significantly reduces the armor-piercing ability of the cumulative jet, although it decreases by 60 or more percent from the optimal one.When the meeting angles are close to normal to the surface of the container, the device loses most of its effectiveness and, as a rule, cannot protect the main armor barrier from a cumulative jet.

                Andrei ... brother, I’ll try to type something intelligible on the “clave”.

                Always worried (not afraid) for two things:
                - stupid in its development of intelligence "crowbar" armor-piercing.
                - the cumulative head of all crap, from RPG-7 to ... I don’t remember.

                Shitty to remember ... this is the most difficult.

                The main thing,
                1. What would be the maximum protection against "crowbars" ... and this is the "tilt angle" and ... the "thickness" of the armor (composite is the secret so far).
                .YES....
                2. "Diverse" (no data in the public domain) armor, protected from a cumulative funnel, and ...
                The same simple "DZ" protected against all cumulative misunderstandings ...
                .YES.

                Total...
                Do not forget the protection against the RPG-7, there is so much of this crap all over the world that there probably is in Antarctica.
                And fear the Hyacinth shot a.
                ...YES...
                Something like that.

                Need a set of protection.
                And this is just a "complex" of tank protection.

                And its main purpose is PROTECTED IMPACT.

                I'm sorry, Lesh, maybe it’s amateurish, but I’ll say that in order not to fall under the “cumulative” scrap and other chiaroscuro, the tank commander must have all the tactical information in the air and on the ground. To do this, equip the machines with certain equipment, such as an indicator of the tactical situation, data transmission equipment, and all this should be integrated into one information system.

I think that it would be better if this is done by a specially trained person - the UAV operator. and the tank commander’s tablet should no longer transmit video, but a graphic display of the situation ... with identified goals and objectives.

        During the 2 November 2007 offensive, the 2A6M tank was blown up by a makeshift explosive device, but remained intact: "The crew got to the IED and became the first Leopard 2A6M to be modified," wrote a Canadian officer to German media. The General Staff of the Canadian Armed Forces, General Rick Hillier, reported that the tank, having been blown up on IEDs, was decommissioned, but returned to the ranks after the repair.

        In October 2007, Denmark also introduced the Leopard 2A5 DK to southern Afghanistan. The tank was taken from the Jydske Dragonregiment battalion (Jutland Dragoons Regiment), which had 3 tanks, one M113 infantry fighting vehicle, reconnaissance vehicle and other tanks in reserve. The Danish version of the Leopard 2A5 is equipped with Swedish Barracuda camouflage, which limits the absorption of solar radiation, which reduces the infrared signature of the machine. In addition, the tank has a traditional outdoor driver's seat, while the Canadian 2A6M uses the Dynamic Safety Seat as a protection against mines, thanks to which the driver is secured with similar parachute belts. 6 wide belts hold him in the right position in limbo. In this case, the driver’s contact with the tank’s hull is excluded, which reduces the impact of the explosion on it.

        In January 2008, Danish tanks stopped the Taliban flanking maneuver near the Helmand River, provided fire support to the Danish and British infantry from the hill. 26 February 2008 year, the Danish Leopard 2 was blown up on a land mine and one truck was damaged. The car under its own power returned to the camp for repair. The first fatal incident for the crew occurred on July 25 2008 of the year. Danish Leopard 2A5 was blown up by IEDs in Helmand province. The car drove another 200 meters after the explosion. Three crew members, being wounded, left the tank, the driver could not be saved. In the same incident, a second tank hit a land mine, but none of the crew members were injured.

    A little off topic, recently in Alabino there were held competitions in tank biathlon on the T-72B. The next year, the Germans want to take part in this Leopard and the Amer in Abrams, and possibly Italians.



    In Alabino, tankers carried out training tasks that are on every military training ground for speed and accuracy. We fell into the layout of the helicopter and covered the route of 18300 meters, overcoming obstacles hill, wall, escarp, minefield, ford. According to the rules of ski biathlon, in the event of a miss during shooting, the tank made a penalty loop 500 meters long. Two misses turned into an extra kilometer. Shooting was carried out by an anti-tank guided missile from a 125-mm tank gun, a NSVT machine gun at a range of 1600 to 2500 kilometers.
    According to the results of inter-district competitions, the tank crew of the 138th separate motorized rifle brigade of the Western Military District became the best. The tank commander is Junior Sergeant Nikolai Morokov, the gunner-operator is Senior Sergeant Ravenalya Ivan, the driver is Private Igor Artemyev. In the international race, they again became the first.

    installation on the roof of a tower of a combat module with remote control KMW FLW 200 with a machine gun of 12,7 mm caliber, as well as an 76-mm grenade launcher

    When will we wait for this in a series?
    To increase survivability (especially from RPGs), additional passive armor was installed along the frontal arc, as well as along the sides of the hull and tower. Together with the main improvements to the changes in the hull and turret, additional reservation is established on the bottom of the hull.

    I correctly understood from the photos that damaged armor can be replaced in the field?
    The latest developments in the field of electronics, optics, and communications give the crew, instead of fragmentary "pictures" in periscopes and sights, which are very limited in viewing angle and range, a full panorama of the surrounding space, showing the enemy’s location and maneuvers of his unit. The digital turret concept actually helps the crew look through the armor. But it is precisely this property that is one of the most important when creating a new generation tank with an uninhabited turret and an armored capsule for the crew, as the domestic T-95 intended. "

    While ours are pulling the cat by the eggs, the Germans are already introducing the latest panoramic multispectral systems .. no

      The longer the exhaust pipe - the greater the loss of engine power, and it will take up more space, and in the tank it means extra armor and extra weight, which makes it shorter. You can’t bend it up, it already “glows” in the infrared range, but here in general, the sun is the best present for instrumental intelligence tools and homing heads ...

    By the way, what kind of “modernization” is “diving” in one of the photos, it seems to have turning lights there, and what other way to put mirrors if it’s already provided with a circular one or something for every fireman? And since the tank doesn’t look at its tonnage, it was very visually striking in a good way, by the way the question is for specialists, and with a molybdenum core someone releases.

    I do not understand the enthusiasm for this modification:
    1) an armament module with a 12,7mm machine gun - 70 years since it is put on tanks. If I'm not mistaken on the T-80, it is remotely controlled from the tower
    2) improvement of armor - it’s not surprising at the expense of weight to “improve” how the survivability index changed, Tiger B had a good reservation too ... Gusli, engine and gearbox remained the same? And then this tank started with a weight of 55 tons approximately (I don’t remember exactly). Added 10 ... 12 tons to the original weight - a cool upgrade. Yes, and for the dimensions the armor climbs out well - it’s interesting, but in the event of a collision with obstacles in the city, this armor does not crash, but do you need to remove it on a standard railway platform, but will it go through a tunnel with a bend?
    3) only the lazy did not put air conditioning on tanks
    4) APU in the 21st century on a tank - this is a revolution - well done designers.

    By the way, a question for connoisseurs: is it true that with a 44-caliber gun, the speed of defeat is 1min. higher than with 55k?

      Starting with the T-64A, but only in Kharkov, the T-72 and T-80 (gas turbine) was not installed. On the T-90 set. But this is still not a module. The module should be autonomous, and on the Kharkov ZPU the tape is changed manually. Modular installation on the T-90MS.

                I'm all about the tank, Black Eagle, (Object 640). Developed in the 90s by the Omsk Design Bureau. It was demonstrated in 1997. The undercarriage, from the T-80U tank with a newly built turret.
                Maybe I'm wrong, correct.
                1. But the modernization of the T-72, started with the installation of the V-92C2 diesel engine, 1130 l / s.
                2. A new tower, type ,, Object 640, ”with the removal of the entire BC in the stern of the tower. Maybe this does not solve all the problems, but still !!!

                  1. But the modernization of the T-72, started with the installation of the V-92C2 diesel engine, 1130 l / s.
                  2. A new tower, type ,, Object 640, ”with the removal of the entire BC in the stern of the tower. Maybe this does not solve all the problems, but still !!!


                  A variant of such modernization was proposed as part of the Burlak ROC, but the Acorn remained there and 22 shots were placed in the aft AZ.

                    It’s a good idea, but installing two AZs on one MBT, then why the idea of ​​a fodder arrangement of BC. If in the tower of the tank with the fighting compartment there is a second automatic loader, carousel type (similar to the AZ of the T-72 tank). Again, the BC in the fighting compartment.

                      inside the tank, the ammunition remains only in the carousel, which is located in the most infested area of ​​the tank.
                      Of course, the crew in the armored capsule separately from the shells is much better, but also an order of magnitude more complicated.

                        There is only one question. About the synchronization of the two AZs and their dimensions. In a tower with a standard volume for the T-72. Then you need a completely new welded (stamped) tower with a large internal volume.
                        And all HE shells, in the stern niche of the tower.

                        It’s good for everyone ... only nobody has created it yet (the created military men are not satisfied). On about. 640 AZ is too weakly protected. When it is damaged, the tank becomes unworkable. At the Burlak, damage to an infested AZ will not lead to a loss of the ability to fire, as well as damage to the Acorn. Even if both AZs are damaged, manual charging remains possible.

                        Once again, this is an ersatz, but, in my opinion, an ersatz is adequate. So to speak, what can be done now. The future, of course, is for isolated AZs.

                No doubt, this is ersatz.

                But. This allows you to fully mechanize the ammunition, allows the tank to remain combat-ready in case of damage to the aft AZ, allows you to install the module on tanks already released. Fodder AZ is smaller in width than about. 640, which allows you to apply for its protection from the sides of a remote booking or remote sensing.

                The disadvantages of the two types of AZ, unfortunately, are plus.

The conversation was on the site Khlopotov, or rather I will not say.

              I am a little familiar with the production technology of wagons (tanks), a press for making tanks should be mandatory. Otherwise, do not bend (stamp) the side surfaces. Another thing is that the thickness of the metal there depends on the type and aggressiveness of the fuel and chemical .. liquids from 10 to 30 mm. As far as I remember.
              Such a press for stamping armor is clearly not enough.
              Therefore, they bought a more powerful one.

    installation of equipment designed to include each main battle tank in a single automated rear support system: this greatly simplifies and speeds up the process of providing tank units with ammunition, fuel and other rear equipment.

    The right thing. It turns out that superior officers and rear will be able to have real-time information on ammunition and fueling for each tank.

    And in what climate and on what soil is this 70 ton Wunderwaffe used? By Russian chernozem and Belarusian forests? By autobahn only. What is its cost and how many hours do you need to make it? Under it, we need miracle-railway-platforms for the transfer, miracle bridges, miracle remrotes, miracle mud and many more miracles unknown to us. Either a Douro or Bert cannon is transported at several echelons, then a Mouse of 170 tons is molded for the factory yard. An eastern camping trip in 1941 did not teach the Germans anything.

    Fritz blurs on the film, that the main attention in the development of this tank was paid, as before - is "the safety of the body and life of the crew and protection against RPGs." So he said from the RPG.

    The opponent is serious. I believe that domestic developers of anti-tank weapons have already prepared or are preparing the killers of this monster. EIf you consider that the tank protection was developed against the RPG-7, which was developed at the beginning of the 60-th years, it’s interesting to know how the armor of this tank resists against more modern anti-tank weapons (tandem, etc.)

    Well, armor does not oppose its modern means! With all due respect to Soviet weapons, RPG7 can be considered a modern anti-tank weapon only against the Abrams with their 70mm unprotected side. Cracking all this dough from Leo2 buyers and nothing more. There is such a criterion in armament: cost-effectiveness. So nichrome she will not work here. It will be like with the Tiger in the Second World War - we fight for one day - we repair / transport / equip for three days ... The tank is a fighter who is always ready for battle and not inviolable. There Jews improved with their Merkava to 70 tons, so what? In recent battles, they were used as a mobile pillbox in the likeness of Mouse. And why? Yes, because it is no longer a tank. So why ask all these "bells and whistles" for extra armor if the tank works with distances beyond the limits of ATGM systems.

      Well, in the tank you need to see this very ATGM calculation. And a fighter with RPGs, especially in the city, is not an easily noticeable target. And he will work from beyond the bounds of distance just like self-propelled guns, and not like a tank.

    A tank is a complex weapon and like any other weapon it fights in conjunction with other types of troops: infantry, artillery, etc. If you make the car absolutely invulnerable from all types of anti-tank weapons, then such a machine will outgrow itself. Those. for its destruction, it will be beneficial or expedient to use other types of more expensive weapons. An example - aircraft carriers - are so expensive toys that it is advantageous to destroy them not with conventional torpedoes or missiles, but with an intercontinental ballistic missile with nuclear warheads. The same Mouse had almost complete protection from the barrel artillery, but it was already possible to get into it with a high probability of a free-falling bomb from a dive. An infantryman with an RPG that shoots into the tank’s side is a miss of the crew or infantry escort, not the tank’s designer. But if the tank modernized in this way doesn’t reach the battlefield, then this is primarily a blunder of the creators of such a machine. My opinion is that the tank will lose significantly in driving performance, especially in the initial dynamics of acceleration and patency.

    2. The T-70 unfortunately doesn’t have a lot of chances to hit the T-4, the reason is the barrel length is very small, which means that the penetration force at a great distance is again not enough to break through the armor, but the T-4 is enough to get into the T-70 to stop and his range for defeating the t-70 is much higher.
    3. I agree that it was forbidden to enter the open battle with the Isami, since its 122 mm cannon quite confidently hit all existing tanks. True, our command did not always correctly manage them and send them to the city without infantry cover, which was fatal for the Ises.
    I read books of "historians", a real battle refutes a lot of "may or may not", if your head is on your shoulders, your hands are also closer to your shoulders and experience has been gained, then t 70 will beat with panzers.

    I just imagine the situation: some Taliban are sitting in the ruins and they are pecking with laser pointers for children on the tank from all sides. Moreover, it is not necessary that a person with a pointer is sitting, a fairly simple device. Will the tank begin to hide from this radiation or not? Or then some citizen comes out with a rocket on his shoulder and shoots the eggs of the tank?

      10-12 pieces, depending on how many blocks of smoke grenades. But you still have to forget that in addition to placing a smoke curtain, the tank’s tower unfolds toward radiation, and shots are fired from both the main gun and machine guns.

      Most likely, the laser detection units will be able to cure the laser pointer from more powerful laser guidance systems.

        As I understand it, the Germans are not just a "smokescreen". Due to the addition of synthetic fibers to the aerosol cloud, it becomes impervious to thermal imagers and radar devices.

            I mean, the Germans seem to have these smokestacks that play a more important role than simply shutting down from laser-guided munitions.
            And what else is interesting to me: what or who gives the command for their application? There are no separate laser detection sensors. They, it turns out, the SAS system does this.

              the Korean smokescreen was impressive, only it should be installed not symmetrically from the center - to the sides, but asymmetrically: from the center - to the right, to the left - somehow

        So I say: it is not necessary that a person with this “pointer” sit there, a simple device is enough ... Let him (the tank) turn his trunk to the right, and fly to him on the left ... It turns out almost from the back to the tower ...

        After all, you can make power adjustment of the same GOS. And it will not be distinguished. Nevertheless, it’s interesting how this figovina determines that they were going to shoot at it, and not the boys indulge ... :)

    My friends, what are you talking and arguing about?!. I myself am a tanker with over 25 years of experience. “Profession” was chosen in the footsteps of his grandfather, a tanker who fought from 1942 to 1944. All our tanks arr. In 1930-1945, in all weight categories, in reality they were not such shit as English, French or American relatives. The British, who invented the tank, made "gas lighters" - these are the words of the British themselves, adopted by the "Germans" of clever Rommel back in Libya. Those. themselves recognized their products "gov ... ohm." This situation developed until 1945, and even today, their tanks are iron carts in all respects. Cruzers-churchy-cromwells - this is all the "death of the tankers" (English and ours: Lend-Lease).
    And with them, and the French - erected by illiterate scribblers, including ours, to the rank of some kind of invincible "hammers" for Panzer 3 and 4 - "Samoa". This tank could have been invented only by "dumb engineers ... would."
    Our tanks for 1941 in terms of armor and armor penetration of shells in all categories exceeded the German ones. There are detailed, competent articles by our military historians (both Soviet and Russian) where everything is painted from a technical point of view. BUT, there is an important BUT. A tank is a means of warfare, not a firing range for target shooting. And here we are in full "... opera" in comparison with the Germans. Those. briefly - "Man controls a tank, not a tank man." In 1941-1943, according to such important parameters of conducting a tank battle as: interaction with other types of troops (we have bold "-" compared to the Germans), crew training (we have bold "-" compared to the Germans), quality of material service and technical staff qualifications (we have bold “-” compared to Germans), quality and design of fire control and surveillance systems (we have bold “-” compared to Germans), communication quality (we have bold “-” compared to Germans ) Therefore, losses in tanks 1 to 4 (rounded) in the period from 1941 to 1944 is not surprising. And most importantly, most of our vaunted T-34s were not burned by the Tigers and Panthers, but by ordinary soldiers of the war: Panzer-3, Panzer-4, Shtug-3. And this despite the fact that 35 thousand destroyed T-34s (even without taking into account numerous other T-26s, Bt 5-7s, T-28s, KVs) are more than the entire production of German tanks of all types for 1934-1945. What can I talk about? How many lives of our tankers were put on the altar of victory for a stupid one, for example, due to the lack of a penny commander’s turret on the T-34 (extremely poor visibility), or a hatch on the frontal armor plate, or poor location of fuel tanks (when breaking through the armor and tank for a diffuse (volume) explosion of diesel fuel pulled out !!!! a frontal armored plate, moreover, the tank did not even light up and did not detonate the ammunition load), or useless optics - this is a separate issue in general, or the lack of basic communications in the tank, not to mention the walkie-talkie. And such "little things" completely nullified the advantage in the armor and shell of our tanks over German tanks.
    As for the Tigers and Panthers, these were in many ways unique designs, as if our scribes or the English-American roosters did not want to discredit them by copying the heresy from book to book. I am familiar with one of our “writers,” whose books are in stores. Familiar in a good way. It turns out that he did not even serve in the army, and the tank theme for him is "just a commercial project", demanded by the consumer. Repeatedly reviewed his works, using technical facts, and not the "memories" of some veterans (no offense is said), who for one battle out of 45 matches for 5-10 "Tigers" fell.

    CONTINUED: And when we started using a specific historical method and analyzed a specific battle, it turned out that "local battles were fought on this section of the Soviet-German front of such a certain number. Gunners of the N regiment with well-aimed fire destroyed so many enemy tanks" . We took German reports (detailed, recorded with German pedantry) in the original, translated and turned out to be there at the same time: destroyed --- enemy tanks of them 2 KV-1, 27 T-34 (3 evacuated for repair), 7 T -26, 3 BT-7 (1 evacuated for repair), 3 - not identified ......, .... artillery guns ..... Our losses: completely destroyed: 4 T-4 (1 commander) , 5 T-3, 2 T-38, evacuated for repair .... ". The most interesting thing further - on this sector of the front the Germans didn’t have any Tigers at the time where our gunners" riveted "them with a stack. Was not there x IN GENERAL. This is how myths are written. But in reality the truth was tragic - the Germans released only 1354 Tigers ("first"). This is a minuscule for global war. But where they really appeared even in small numbers then they smashed both us and the Americans “to the smithereens.” If they riveted the “Tigers” well, at least 10 thousand, they would have won the war for sure. With some of its shortcomings, the tank was excellent - powerful armor, an excellent gun (the best in the world at that time), excellent optics and guidance system allowed the Tiger to begin to shoot our T-34 tanks from 2 km away. My grandfather said: "The German saw us in his optics in the palm of his hand for 3 versts and beat like a partridge." Shell "Tiger" for 2 km. even ricocheting knocked out pieces of armor inside the T-34, killing and mutilating the crew. From a distance of 1,5 km. guaranteed to break through the frontal armor. From a distance of 1 km. the shell pierced the T-34 right through from the frontal armor to the stern sheet. Not far behind the Tiger and Pantrera, which lost the title of "best tank of the Second World War" due to an insufficiently reliable engine. I am a patriot of my weapons, but I have to admit that historically the facts about the confrontation between our and German armored forces are all against us and our allies. All the “records” on the German side are the number of enemy tanks destroyed in one battle, in one hour, in the career of a particular tanker, etc. And the merit of these German records in the aggregate of technically advanced tanks and competent crews. There is no primary criterion or “iron” or “man”. Here the primary "tank with crew." And they outplayed us both in Senno, and near Dubno, and near Krsk and near Balaton ... This is a fact. On average 1 to 4 ...

      That is all clear. Only something with all the records we won, not the Germans. Probably, the essence of the war is not in measuring n ... mi, i.e. records, and real military successes. And the real military (both Soviet and German knew this). And those who wanted to measure records, created prodigies, and raked in full function, despite the “records”.

    1. Once again I tell you, there was no feat - it was a collective myth for raising morale at a critical moment for the country. (There were 2 companies on this site, not 28 people)
    2. The T-70 unfortunately doesn’t have a lot of chances to hit the T-4, the reason is the barrel length is very small, which means that the penetration force at a great distance is again not enough to break through the armor, but the T-4 is enough to get into the T-70 to stop and his range for defeating the t-70 is much higher.
    3. I agree that it was forbidden to enter the open battle with the Isami, since its 122 mm cannon quite confidently hit all existing tanks. True, our command did not always correctly manage them and send them to the city without infantry cover, which was fatal for the Ises.

    That is, you believe in the memoirs of the German "tank aces" (which are not documented), do not hesitate to call them Ases and do not call them myths, but do you call the feat of the Soviet foot soldiers a myth? Think yourself - who are you after that? Even if Panfilov’s were a thousand against the tanks and they stopped the tanks, then this is already a feat. If you don’t consider a feat, come to Donbass, take 2 companies and go against at least one tank. You will tell later, crap, what a feat this is not.
