Media: the Syrians are in dire need of new tanks

77
The Syrian government forces, fighting for a long time with terrorists from various groups, suffered heavy losses in armored vehicles: during the war years hundreds of vehicles turned into scrap metal. Unfortunately, a significant percentage of them are Tanks T-72. Writes about this Messenger of Mordovia.




“The situation is so critical that more and more often in combat formations of the most combat-ready units, which previously used exclusively seventy-twos, we now see old T-55,” writes the author of the article, Lev Romanov.

These tanks are easy to learn, they are easy to repair in field conditions. However, they are easy and hit, even outdated anti-tank ammunition. The lack of multi-layered armor makes cars vulnerable.

Therefore, the issue of replenishing the Syrian tank park is by far the most relevant.

According to the author, “there can be no talk of any supply of modern T-90 tanks, since the Syrians need a more familiar and, therefore, mastered technology without any problems.” He suggests that T-72AB and T-72B1 be considered as “candidates”.

“The first cars are well known to the Syrians, but it seems that the T-72B1 will also be mastered as soon as possible. The main thing is that these tanks undergo at least minimal refinement for local specifics, ”writes Romanov.

According to him, tanks should have at least “lattice protivokumulyatnye screens” and the protection of the commander, using heavy machine gun NSVT.

“The Syrians would also have been able to use upgraded T-55M, T-62M, T-55MB and T-62MVs in terms of survivability, but according to some reports, these tanks were disposed of during the previous leadership of the Ministry of Defense,” concludes Romanov.

        Yes, no doubt, but for a start a strategy for combat employment will be worked out specifically on the Syrian front, then the training of Syrian crews and command, and after that the transfer of equipment itself. The truth is not the fact that most of all this has been done, but so far it’s not visible at the fronts, there will probably be SURPRISE.

        Well, the GDP for Syria is going through more than many internal problems, so that the tanks will give as much as necessary. Apparently no one doubts this already.
        The article showed that again Serdyukov’s legacy was croaking, and Serdyukov unsinkable, like in Christ’s bosom, smiles and doesn’t even twitch his eyes.
        So I would like, I would really like that we would not only help Syria, but also fight our troubles. Holy thing, isn't it?

            In order:
            In Syria is not easier. The whole world counts how many cartridges / shells / people came to Syria from Russia and so many ears hit with their warnings and opinions that I don't care. And if Serdyukov and Vasilyev would have been imprisoned, not a single nickname would have come up with a protest to express.
            About turbidity of internal problems and measure / cut seven times. Judging by the patronage of the Serdyukins, they only do what they cut and saw.
            About to look and compare with the last decades. I do not consider the last decades to be the standard. I prefer late Stalinism and other communism after Stalin for the standard of statehood. Here they put everyone without a view of the ranks. They were afraid to think about kickbacks.
            The phrase "a true communist and now implies a crystal clear honest person with strong convictions." And what would they think if you say "real United Russia"?
            ETOGES for a deep insult ride!
            PS About 10-15 years ago, the Communists could not stand the spirit, but the party in power forced them to respect in comparison with themselves.

              You were asked, in fact - whether something has changed for the better in the last 10-15 years. I am also interested in your opinion on this matter.

        First, before answering this question, think about this. Syria, even before the well-known events, have already written off $ 10 billion of Russia's debt. And another $ 4 billion worth of armaments was put, which, judging by the article, they led to a very deplorable state, and they gave something to the whole ISIS. Do you think that if they are yet to be delivered, will they dispose of it any better?
        And for these $ 10bn (actually count 14, because they will not repay new debts either - there is no money and is not expected) how many roads could be built in Russia? Housing for the poor? Schools equip? Hospitals? Yes, just invest in the real economy? Or, if you like it better, how much AUG to build? It would just be today than Qatar and Saudi democratize in full. No pity?what
        And secondly, those who make decisions will not ask you anyway whether it’s a pity or not.

          Of course, there are a lot of problems in the country and they need to be solved, but that these 14 billion that went to the fight against terrorism, compared with hundreds of billions annually flowing from the country to the west, fueling the economies of the countries that are gaining strength, are plotting the machinations of Russia, are coming up with ways the destruction of our economy. In fact, the international community itself contains and grows an American monster, allowing it to create instability in different parts of the world. Well, they don’t pay their own hard-earned money for regime change, terrorist training!
          So, if we talk about solving the internal problems of Russia, then we must start by stopping the export of capital to the West.

          I regard this as a doctrine. Why shoot expensive rockets at plywood targets. It’s better to launch them at bearded obscurantists. Or do you think large-scale exercises are cheaper than the Syrian operation? We will gain experience, we will test weapons. and the money (not all of course) will be recaptured by importing weapons. Which we will advertise in Syria.

A Russian cannot sleep peacefully if an ancient evil wanders somewhere in the desert, offending peaceful people, many of whom are Orthodox believers. To drive evil back into hell, tanks and planes do not mind the forces of good at all, they are also asking for something that is already in the warehouse and so what will need to be changed in the near future to a more modern laughing

          They will carry civilians if they agree with the United States. Otherwise, they will be quite legally (on the basis of the procedures of inspection of civil courts signed by Russia, as well as unilateral sanctions imposed by the USA and Turkey) will be flown in the straits and arrested. That is, to inspect at the inspection on international inspection acts, which legally do not undermine, and to arrest the goods on the basis of sanctions in the territory of the inspector.

          Warships - do not have the right to inspect unless a UN-approved blockade has been imposed and the ship should not go to a place blocked by the UN.

          Escort will not help here because - again, the inspection of a civilian vessel is a procedure prescribed and signed including by Russia. Although Moscow will stand there, it will not be touched.

          Repainting and raising the St. Andrew’s flag will also give nothing. We need a procedure for transferring a ship to the Navy, this is a bureaucracy with entry in world registers. Otherwise, it will be hijacked on the basis of flag-ship mismatch, also legally (piracy or smuggling under someone else’s flag), plus the ship will be arrested on 1-2 of the year of the trial.

          Yes, it’s a huge misfortune that the Navy has not only a rather limited landing fleet (and why, they’re not going to land - like the arguments of 1-2 years ago), but also the complete lack of transports. For example, the Soviet transport sold at 90 of the U.S. Navy from a mobilization reserve by capacity = 10 BDK serves Uncle Sam in the U.S. Navy.

Mistral .... what, they don’t have application ?? ... a suitcase without a handle ?? ... a trough against baboons ?? ...

          Undoubtedly, all ships of Russian construction or Russian (Soviet projects) are also intended for the transport of military equipment. So the vessels of the Northern Shipping Company (Arkhangelsk), the Murmansk Shipping Company (Murmansk), all skaters, etc. If necessary, the necessary tonnage will be provided immediately. All mobilization plans suggest this. Moreover, vessels with heavy-weight arrows will unload the equipment from the holds themselves, and from the rollers under their own power along the ramp.

        The land path is needed.

        Please note that South African coal in Ukraine is comparable in price to Donetsk. Transportation by sea is incomparably cheaper than moving goods on a dry path. For comparison. The river (the largest of the Volga) motor ship "24 Congress of the CPSU" took the goods brought by 3 railway routes. And loaded from 4. And how to overtake these routes to Syria? Alter rut, change trolleys? Even if you drive away all those who are against, from the railway. After paving the missing areas.

I saw that there was only a sense of the hull from the tanks, the engines were removed, the wiring was cut off, there weren’t any tracks, or rather, but not everywhere and often not on cars, I can’t talk about more complex systems, but something tells me that they’re also khan.

          China could help not only with supplies. If we add Chinese military transports to the Syrian express, then the sheep are safe (the cargo delivered) and the wolves are full (international law is respected).

        The famous T-62 tanks, which constituted the main striking force of the Soviet army in the conflict on Damansky Island in 1968, finally went down in history. As the Main Auto-Armored Directorate (GABTU) of the Ministry of Defense told Izvestia, it was decided to begin the disposal of the T-62 immediately after the New Year.

        - It is necessary to free up space at the storage bases for new tanks. A little more than 900 T-62s have been preserved, and all of them have been transferred to Spetsremont OJSC, which is part of the Oboronservis holding. They will be engaged in "cutting", - said a senior officer of the GABTU.

        Back in 2011, the Minister of Defense signed an order to withdraw from service non-core weapons and military equipment, as well as the transition to a unified caliber of main battle tank guns. According to this order, only relatively new modifications of the T-72/90 and T-80 remain in service and the contentment of the defense department. They, in turn, are actively changing to modern T-90.

    Yes. Syria has huge problems with technology. Now I watched a video from the Syrian base in Cuneitra seized by terrorists. Terrorists say that the Syrians remained only at the air base. So there the defense of the captured base was kept on the T-34-85. The terrorists themselves were crazy of what they saw. The Syrians removed from storage and threw all the equipment into battle. It came to the storage of the T-34-85 and Su-100. 1 of the latter was also on that video.

      Highways are still useful for the ability to transfer ready-made air groups, including land helicopters (up to Mi-26) on deck, without disassembling, taking off from the deck and flying to the land base of deployment. Ruslans come out longer (to disassemble, load, assemble, put into flight condition), even taking into account the sea passage from the SSS to Tartus.

    For the holy cause do not mind .... yes the Russians?

    First, before answering this question, think about this. Syria, even before the well-known events, have already written off $ 10 billion of Russia's debt. And another $ 4 billion worth of armaments was put, which, judging by the article, they led to a very deplorable state, and they gave something to the whole ISIS. Do you think that if they are yet to be delivered, will they dispose of it any better?
    And for these $ 10bn (actually count 14, because they will not repay new debts either - there is no money and is not expected) how many roads could be built in Russia? Housing for the poor? Schools equip? Hospitals? Yes, just invest in the real economy? Or, if you like it better, how much AUG to build? It would just be today than Qatar and Saudi democratize in full. No pity?what
    And secondly, those who make decisions will not ask you anyway whether it’s a pity or not.

    In your opinion ... it turns out ... you need to build roads, houses, cut nuclear weapons, etc. ... to score for the whole world and think only about yourself? It is very similar to an exceptional version of events .... only the time will come and we will reap democratic bombing from ostrich politics and everything that we built will be very "beautifully" destroyed ... did I understand you correctly?

    A strange phrase, the author of the information most likely does not represent the volumes standing on the conservation of equipment and weapons. Even such a lord as a stool with girls was not able to completely destroy everything. Another question is that there is no time for them, even rather modest preparation and modernization. Although, with the stabilization of the conflict, the idea of ​​using our outdated, but quite combat-ready equipment is quite competent.

    Well, it's kind of my subjective thought. sad

      Our modernization of the so-called "urban" T-72 will apparently be a little expensive for the Syrians, so they need help with the modernization, at least as they do it on a "industrial" scale:

It makes no sense to give this, they will burn everything because of the stupidity of the application. Only under the control and guidance of ours. There are examples of assault groups in Berlin.
