US defenders intend to create tanks that will avoid enemy attacks

118
Over the last century ability weapons piercing armor developed faster than the ability of armor to provide reliable protection, according to the release of the American defense agency DARPA. Now, the agency has taken up the development of new types of military equipment, which will lose weight and become faster, which will allow it to evade enemy attacks and not test its armor. It is reported online edition Gearmix.



To this end, the agency launched the program "Ground X-Vehicle Technology", through which the following tasks should be solved: “Reduce the size and weight of modern tanks half; double the speed of their movement; and halve the number of crew they need to operate. ”. In addition, the developers want to ensure that “the armored vehicles created can overcome 95 percent of any landscapes they encounter, including various hills and elevations”.

DARPA claims that it will take 2 of the year to develop such technologies. After that, the agency will be able to conclude a contract for the creation of radically new cars.

    Now the agency has taken on the development of new types of military equipment that will lose weight and become faster, which will allow it to dodge enemy attacks and not test its armor for strength
    here I would like to recall the words of one of our tank designers, who told the truth about the T80: "... high speed is good, but it's not a fact that after leaving one blow, you won't move to the place where another was applied, so don't forget about armor ... "
    And as an "antidote" to this American novelty - homing anti-aircraft missiles ... So, in order to "avoid" it is better for him to "run deep into the rear", and it is better not to appear at the front line, although in the rear there is already something to get it ...

        This means a large increase in the amount of electronics to compensate for the decrease in crew. And such electronics will need to be additionally shielded so that this tank does not turn into a pile of scrap metal.
        The simpler the device, the more difficult it is to break it.

        A good initiative from the Communist Party:
        To prohibit the performance in Russia of artists supporting the punitive operation of the junta in the Donbass

        Musicians and other artists of Russia and Ukraine such as Makarevich, Noize-MC, Ruslana and the like, in fact, support the punitive operation of the Kiev junta in the Donbass. Whether they do it for ideological reasons or because of money is equally criminal in relation to Russian civilization and the Russian people.
        Take three minutes to leave your vote! If you, of course, are not a fan of Makarevich and Ruslana.

          I urge respectful of someone's opinion.
          If we stop honoring laws, we will slide to the level of Ukraine.
          If a person is to blame for something, then he must be judged by the laws, and not by emotions.

        Like in the old joke: at the time of World War II, the Fuhrer is shown a new 2mm armor tank, 200mm gun, 127 speeds-5 back, 4 forward. The Fuhrer says well, but why 1 forward ?!

          intend to create tanks that will avoid enemy attacks

          They do everything right. With high speed and the ability to move around complex terrain, you can quickly escape away from the front line. In the deep operational depths, they will definitely avoid direct enemy attacks. laughing

        Pindocnya, who does not have a serious military history and great undeniable national victories, did not understand the main concept of any war:
        "The war is being waged to destroy the enemy's manpower, first of all. The destruction of military-technical means, warehouses, communications is just an accompanying task.
        After the destruction of the enemy's manpower, the occupation of the enemy's territory and the destruction of his economy follows. "
        So the war of robots and fast-running and jumping tanks is a technological competition. They do not solve the main task of the war - the destruction of manpower - human biomass, as a condition for final victory.

          and what is the delusionality of transport robots in your photo?
          In principle, the idea is not crazy, but if you look, there are global flaws. Where do these robots have a center of gravity? If you lay it on its side, how will it rise? What is cross in swampy places or sand? Elements of the hydraulic drive (in particular, the high pressure hoses and hydraulic cylinders are not protected (it’s enough to get out of the bow), if you solve this problem by overhanging the additional armor, the structure itself will become heavier, which entails (if we consider a closed hydraulic system).
          1. The increase in pressure in the system, as resistance to the vector increases by the length and weight of the lever.
          2. As a result of p1, the flow of hydraulic fluid increases - a more efficient pump is needed (accordingly, its dimensions will increase).
          3. as a result of xNUMX, a more powerful pump drive is needed (another plus to the dimensions)
          4. As a result, the 3 needs more powerful batteries.
          You can continue for a long time, but in the end you get a monster from the Star Wars episode 4. Now the main question. Does anyone need him?

If they write that it has an 2 beat B&S on it, Brixes do not make 2 beat, 16 hydraulic drives are unprotected, it will devalue this machine so much, with its own weight 110kg, the net weight is 154kg (not enough). They didn’t really show anything, well, the slope is up to 35 degrees, well, it’s on the ice, but the question was how it behaves in the marsh terrain and in quicksand. So the question of expediency has not been removed.

                1) Everything is perfectly shown in the video, where the person will pass, the sample will also pass, and besides, they will improve passability.

                2) Why would he need a reservation, NOT going to ride on it to fight, this is transport for goods (food, ammunition, medicine) of the separation level. For rear support there is wheeled transport and helicopter of larger units.

                3) Horses / mules / donkeys also weigh a lot and carry not very much - they have always been used. Especially in difficult terrain.
                The advantage is that this drone follows the owner and executes all his commands - lie down, calm down, run away, go somewhere, stop. And not afraid of shooting.

This is the latest modification, they cannot support you and generally fight! - Why? - So they're just to avoid attacks! - What is it like? - Everything is simple!

With proper use, they could well fight up to 45 years. Do not forget about the T-60, T-70 and T-80, also light tanks like BT. They fought well. By the way, in the war with Japan, they showed what they are capable of, those that remained in the Far East BT-7 were used very successfully. We learned how to fight pancake.

      In general, while this is a utopia, taking into account smart shells and missiles, if an aircraft with its frantic speed cannot dodge them, then ground-based equipment, and even more so, it should at least not travel, but fly above the surface in all directions. Something like this.

      The weapon of the future is a lot of relatively small and cheap ammunition, operating on the principle of "smart swarm". First of all, this will manifest itself as always at sea, why super-high-speed and super-expensive anti-ship missiles, if you can launch one, two simple carriers - which, upon approach, will release fifty submunitions (too small for anti-aircraft artillery), which in turn will surround the "victim" and strike at once from all sides on weapons installations, radars and wheelhouses. Then you can go up and drown the blind and unarmed from a machine gun. And then it will reach the ground forces.
      In 100 years, a technique (except for carriers) larger than a mini-UAV will become an anachronism, battles will be - a robotic swarm against a robotic swarm.

      I agree with Rus2012. First you need to figure out a secure communication channel, which will be extremely difficult to crack and suppress interference. If the first is still possible, then the second ... I'm not sure.
      Well, of course, these "masiks" have a grenade launcher to carry a tank into the bochin. I am sure that they will immediately begin to hang side screens on tanks. Only the caliber or a fundamentally new shell will decide. With the caliber, alas, it will not work because of the size of the machine, the projectile - R&D is needed!
      but in general a cartoon ... patriotic I would say))))

        It is impossible to crack a 256-bit encoding of a signal in real time (to crack such an encoding it takes months or even years of resource-hours of a decryption supercomputer with a performance of 20+ petaflops).
        With interference, too, it’s not all so sad, drowning all the air over large areas is unrealistic in terms of the monstrous energy expenditures for such an action, and pinpoint suppression is possible only with the direct detection of a monitored object.
        EW tools are good against radars and guidance tools, but against encrypted communication channels, they are not so effective. It is especially difficult to suppress a narrow channel of communication with a satellite.

        Yes, "North of Gansovsky" ... hi
        ... And why then the tank does not move
        just from thoughts? For example, at this moment I think that it would be nice to
        hit him with a shell directly into the tower. Where he stands now. I think but
        the tank does not move. However, they told us that we will all be in the field

Min and electronic warfare may not be at hand, and judging by the declared goals, it will be extremely difficult to get into this wunderwolf from a grenade launcher ....... And more ... I think that the Americans (or American oligarchs) are developing a new concept of warfare "ala terminator" where the leading role is assigned to combat robots and unmanned vehicles

          with the widespread use of such lightly armored vehicles, the answer will be the development of a guided anti-tank missile grenade for a grenade launcher since the armor of such a technique is quite tough for them, because back in 60-70 years. a cumulative grenade was developed for a grenade launcher with armor penetration of 40-50 mm. armor

      So at the checkpoint, too, not salabons-conscripts can be. To prevent this "gnat" from turning into scrap at the cost of Maybach, a very advanced AI is needed. And this is not yet even in games where you only need to control a set of pixels. If there were such opportunities and appropriate specialists, game makers for the sake of super-profit would have lured them away from the warriors long ago.

      PS: In general, a tank is like a big soldier with a big gun. Even if you remove the armor, to carry the guns + ammunition that meets the tasks of the machine, you need a chassis of a certain carrying capacity, cross-country ability and dimensions. Without this, this is another machine-gun buggy. Remember Discovery showed Ripsaw? Something does not order them with hundreds of pentagon ...

And if he, at the slightest danger, will rush off and hide in the gap, throwing infantry and armored personnel carriers - what the hell is such a tank for?

    The whole truth is that DARPA generates thousands of new projects (regardless of whether the military ordered them or not), the most worthy ones are selected from them (to offer or participate in an existing tender).

    There is no need to react to all the fantastic DARPA projects, this is not the position of the Pentagon - not everything will even be created in metal.
    In general, Skolkovo everyone should work on their principle, and not so that development takes place either in budgetary institutions or in the design bureaus themselves and often only according to the existing military order - for example, to make a new BMP - and everyone started looking for an economical and better way and came to opinion that you need to upgrade ...
