RT compared the cost of the tank Armata T-14 with advanced armored vehicles from other countries

50
The Director General of Uralvagonzavod Oleg Sienko provided data on the cost of the latest Russian tank T-14 “Armata” after the launch of mass production. According to him, one combat vehicle will cost the customer 250 million rubles, or $ 3.7 million at the current rate.




TV channel RT used information from open sources to rank the most popular tanks in the world based on their price.

First place went to the French tank AMX-56 Leclerc, whose mass production was launched in the 1992 year. The cost of a combat vehicle with a classic layout, equipped with an 120-mm gun, is 10 million dollars, largely due to the large amount of sophisticated equipment.



In second place is the South Korean “Black Panther” (K2 Black Panther), which appeared on the market two years ago, also equipped with an 120-mm cannon and automatic loader similar to the French Leclerc, which provides for the rate of fire of 20 shots per minute. The tank is worth 8.8 million dollars.



Third place with the cost of 8.6 million dollars went to the American Abrams - M1A2 SEP - a deeply modernized version of the previous generation tank, which received a modified engine, new communications, as well as other technologies created under the program "Combat systems of the future."



The fourth place was taken by the main battle tank of the British ground forces Challenger 2, which has been in service for more than 10 years. Its price is 6.5 million dollars.



In fifth place is the main battle tank of the Federal Republic of Germany, Leopard 2, which is sold for 5.7 million dollars. German cars are used in the armies of many European countries.



According to the channel, in addition to the five of these tanks between the "Armata" and the most expensive option are still at least Israeli Merkava Mark IV and Indian Arjun Mk II. The only thing that can compete with the Russian design is the Chinese ZTZ-99 tank - the further development of the T-72 concept with a new welded turret, dynamic defense and some other changes.

      I read the last article about Armata, it says 1 car (500 million rubles) and it is said that they reduced the price by half.
      And here is 250 million.

        The phrase is taken out of context. It was an interview with the general director of UVZ, it was said that upon reaching serial production the cost of the tank MUST be halved, to 250 million. And the order should be 2300 pcs. to 2020

        The key phrase is "in mass production." Single models are always more expensive. By the way, the article also has the same Abrams error. The average book price of the tank in the M1A2 modification for 1999 was about $ 6,2 million.

        At the same time, the purchase price of the tank is much lower: for example, the newly built M1A1 SA, delivered to the Iraqi Armed Forces, were paid to the manufacturer at the rate of $ 1,4 million per car; for Australia, the M1A1 AIM with more advanced equipment, however, received from US Army reserves, cost $ 1,18 million for each tank.

        The cost of major repairs with deep modernization under the Abrams Integration Management program, including the installation of FBCB2 automated control systems, new thermal imaging cameras, armor modernization, etc., is $ 0,7-1 million. The cost of the most comprehensive upgrade to the M1A2 SEP level, including the replacement of the entire fighting compartment, ranged from $ 1,4 to $ 2,6 million over the years.

        As of 2012, the cost of the tank under the contract for the US Army is 5,5-6,1 million dollars

      Counting in dollars is not very correct, in 2014, 250 million rubles. amounted to more than 7 million dollars. And in 2015, our tank suddenly becomes two times cheaper than its opponents. Thus, a lot of things have become “cheaper" in our country.

    General Director of Uralvagonzavod Oleg Sienko provided data on the cost of the newest Russian tank T-14 Armata after the launch of mass production.
    unfortunately, but I do not agree. All these calculations are preliminary. The exact cost will be clear only after the establishment of mass production and the number of cars produced will play an important role. But what I agree with is the fact that with at least equal, and in fact higher combat and operational qualities, this tank can really be much cheaper than its foreign "vis-a-vi"

      Yes, these are preliminary calculations. But they are multiple below the analogues. And even if the price goes up, it still will not be 2 times. Sienko is one of the best managers in the country and is used to following his own words. I assume that something like this will be)))

        Bo Andersson, president of AvtoVAZ, when he began to steer the domestic auto industry, began to insist on a large number of experimental cars, before launching the model in series. According to him, this was not accepted in the USSR, Russia. Therefore, the technology was raw, and cars with a lot of imperfections.
        It was better with defense products. And 100 and more tanks from this series.

      He owned a Lacetti, owned Captiva (assemblies, though not local) - neither one nor the other did not cause problems. And if the first one is used in a taxi in the tail and in the mane, with a run of a hundred thousand per year, and the second one is trying to get through the Ladoga rally, then this is already on the conscience of the owner.

    Most likely, these are really preliminary estimates of the cost, firstly, the configuration will probably be different, and secondly, what will be the series - a seriously influencing factor on the price ... but in essence the Armata tank of the new generation and the possibilities for its development are very, very large, and improvements can change its cost both in that and in the other direction ... but it’s still nice that the new conceptual vehicle (albeit according to preliminary estimates) is cheaper than competing tanks of the previous generation)))

    I will tell you about the cost of weapons in production in bulk. Whoever came across a PM pistol and who dismantled it, know its spring, the initial price of 3 rubles for the Sovetskys is very expensive, but it couldn’t be cheaper, and then its cost became 15 kopecks and figured out how to reduce the cost of mass production. So with the tanks. T 34-85 cost two times cheaper than. T 34-76 his predecessor and the resource of the tank also almost tripled. So now no one really knows the price for him.

      Ok, so be it. But, all the same, the T-14 costs $ 3,7 million and still overtakes everyone at a price. You will not consider that the Chinese are better. What is the ZTZ-99? All the same T-72 clone rehash. The 72nd is a great tank, but everything is becoming obsolete and everything needs a replacement. And the Chinese were stuck on their damage-copying and minor improvements, as a rule, due to national characteristics.

I always thought that protecting the crew is the task of the tank, but it turns out wrong? And how to get out the mechanics - the driver of the Korean tank if the hatch under the tower or he crawls out by the way?

    They all speak correctly. That's just the problem now with the price. At a time when the dollar was more or less stable, such price comparisons would be more accurate, or something. Now, with the jumps over the past six months, the dollar is not an exact criterion. For example, by the first of January 2016, the dollar will be, well, let's say 120 r / dollar, and so. We will say that the cost of our tank is 1,8 million greenery, and it is the cheapest. No. there should be some kind of criterion. For example, the cost in rubles, but in relation to some currency that doesn’t "jump" in our country. IMHO.

    As in the west, no less. It will still depend on a manufacturing indicator such as man-hours. And if you level the man-hours in our country and in the west - HZ how much will Armata cost
