New machine-gun installation on the T-90MS

24
On RAE-2015 in Nizhny Tagil, along with the innovations of the domestic "defense" put up a tank T-90MS, which, according to foreign experts, who arrived at the exhibition, is one of the best in the world, reports Messenger of Mordovia.

New machine-gun installation on the T-90MS


The T-90MS was equipped with a new remote-controlled installation, equipped with a 12,7 mm Kord machine gun. Previously, the tank had a 7,62 mm machine gun 6P7K PKTM. It was believed that this caliber is enough for self-defense and the destruction of the enemy’s infantry. Nevertheless, the developers stated that they are always ready to change the machine gun at the request of the customer. Now they have demonstrated it.



As a result, the sighting range increased to 2-km, in addition, it became possible to defeat lightly armored targets.



“Control of a remote machine-gun installation is possible both from the commander’s workplace and from the gunner-operator panel, including using the existing thermal imaging channel. The system is stabilized in two planes and has large angles of vertical pumping, ”says the publication.

      It all comes down to money.

        I think the question is a little deeper than just money, and Park 72 is huge + the base for its modernization is far from over.

      Why is he needed in the army if there is a T-72 and a T-14 is being prepared? Let's buy a T-90 to the detriment of the T-14? After all, the plant will not be able to immediately issue hundreds or thousands of T-90s, which means deliveries will drag on for several years and will automatically affect the order and release of the T-14. And the T-72 is already in large quantities - upgrade and gradually replace it with the T-14.

      This is not rational, the T-14 is on the way. Let T-90 for export, money for the production of Armat somewhere after all, you have to get it, understand? And upgrade the old T-72.

      Everything is simple here. With a good upgrade, the T-72 is not much different from the T-90, and the cost of modernization is 10 times lower. And for the price of the T-90 it is easier and more expedient to look at the Armats. What sobsno and done now.

      tank - 150 rounds of ammunition, for conventional combat as part of a unit, given that this is an auxiliary tool for particular tasks, in most situations, it’s rather enough.

        Have you ever seen the box for 150-200 rounds of 12.7mm? The standard box is clearly visible in the photo.

          Here is 56-ZhL-542M - standard box for belts for machine guns 56-P-542M, 6P11, 6P17, 6P49, 6P50, 6P51 for 50 rounds.

          IMHO in the photo of the tank the box is more authentic and higher, apparently there will be more than 50 cartridges there.

          Here is a box of 150 rounds on Vladimir T-90A.

          The second box (spare, also for 150 rounds) is almost invisible; it is attached to the right side of the turret behind the Shtora AG KAZ launch module.

    At least DZ is tightly mounted on this machine, not like on the T-72M3. True, the nomenclature of elements of remote sensing is large. There will be problems with the supply.

    All this is good, but how much has the tank's silhouette increased in height? Previously, the T-90 was positioned as an "armored frog" with a low silhouette, which could hide in a cornfield, but now? This is especially noticeable in the third photo from the stern side. Although ... the customers know better, maybe they will shoot camels from behind the dunes in the desert. Then - yes, just a higher stand will come in handy.

      This is a type of sub-barrel sighting and radar complex in a helicopter laughing

    It’s never a tanker, but it always seemed to me that 7,62 is too small for a turret ... well, why waste shells if easily armored targets can be destroyed from a heavy machine gun. Yes, and a tape of 50 rounds ... this is not to carry on yourself.

    I will also express my opinion. I do not pretend to be absolute truth, this is a very difficult question.
    For any types of weapons, we have several options, which is good news. Duplication of beautiful designs only enhances combat capabilities. And I have not heard categorical claims that the T-14 in all respects exceeds the T-90. And there is a lot of talk about this - and not amateurs. I work as a director of special production as part of the Kirov Plant and I know the opinion of both St. Petersburg designers and specialists from Nizhny Tagil.
    And then we never had this - only one type of tank, only one type of fighter, only one type of machine gun. Even in the most difficult war years, there were several designs in one segment of armaments - that of the rifle, that of the aircraft, that of the tank troops.

    And what, in other places, the opportunity to stick out the periscope from the shelter, and even with the barrel, will not be useful?

    The Kord machine gun has been installed on tanks and other self-propelled equipment since 1998 and replaced the Utes and DShK. It serves primarily to protect equipment from enemy helicopters. tank version 6p49 differs from the infantry by the presence of e-mail. drive, a long and extended box for 150 rounds. The rate of fire is 10 rounds per second. Against the infantry, the tape will not last long, I think that 7, 62 should also be in the twin.
