Media: Syrian tankers began to deliver dynamic protection

63
Before the start of the civil war, the Syrian army managed to establish the “Contact-1” dynamic protection (DZ) of only a fraction of its available tanks T-72. Over time, most of the DZ "killed" during the fighting, and it turned into a real deficit, writes Roman Katkov in an article for Messenger of Mordovia.


Media: Syrian tankers began to deliver dynamic protection


The lack of protection blocks Syrian craftsmen tried to compensate for homemade protivokumulyativnymi screens, or even just sandbags. Recently, however, apparently, the shortage of "Contact-1" began to be filled with new supplies.

“The Syrians seem to have started getting sets of dynamic protection. Already several times, looking at materials coming from combat areas, I have noticed tanks with handicraft superimposed elements of the DZ, ”said Yuri Lyamin, an expert on the Syrian theme.

He illustrated his words with a photo (screenshot from the video), in which the frontal part of the Syrian T-72А is covered with green DZ blocks. In this case, the tank itself has a sand color.

“True, it was mounted, apparently, in a great hurry and not in the way it should be. As a result, significant undisclosed areas remained, which may adversely affect the survivability of the vehicle in battle, ”the author concludes.

          The Syrians would now throw long-range fights, but the T-72 with the Stora (otherwise it’s not good: they are equipped, but they didn’t go into battle, the engineers did not have enough material to improve the design) ...

      you just need to urgently deliver. it doesn’t take up much space, I hope that soon all Syrian tanks will have normal Russian dynamic protection and not home-made

      That's for sure! While the Aerospace Forces disrupts the supply, communications, command, planning of terrorists, until they have found methods to adapt to the new realities, while the "iron" is still hot after the attacks of the Aerospace Forces ... it is necessary to forge it and DZ is an excellent help.

      Perhaps one of the most benign news for today ... even though the DZ is not very skillfully set yet, while there is time to advance, it is necessary to advance and probably the "second echelon" of tanks will be with a normally installed DZ, and now, according to the principle, rather into battle and try on "shoulders "terrorist attacks go further and this is facilitated by the presence of remote sensing on the tanks, and then there were too many losses and restrictions on the use of tanks.

      and the answer to deliveries of TOU ... by the way, how many videos I’ve looked through ... I can make a number of criticisms of the Syrians ... conducting military operations in the city, knowing about the possibility of using anti-tank weapons, they practically do not use Cloud or TDA, but in cooperation with the infantry, a cloud could cover the movement of assault groups and a TDA mounted on a tank, even in urban conditions, would complicate aiming at the tank ... a shot from behind in its own cloud .. I would like to hope that the mechanic guides learn the driving technique .. for a very long time P follows a shot tank get under way to change the position or in the shelter ..

    Judging by how the blocks are installed, the following options can be suggested:
    1) the reactive armor blocks are real, but on this instance of the tank there were no bonoks for attaching standard DZ blocks (possibly an old modification of the T-72), so the Syrians handicraftly installed the blocks according to the principle "I blinded it from what it was." But even such a DZ installation is much better for a tank and especially its crew than a "naked" tank without DZ blocks at all.
    2) blocks of dynamic protection "fake" - this is a handicraft imitation for fear of enemies, put on the same principle as option No. 1. Although this is unlikely - if we were to imitate, then the blocks would also be repainted in sand - at least it would look more logical.
    From where the real blocks of DZ could get into Syria - guess for yourself! laughing

        I do not insist that this will be exactly so, but I think that if the operator of the ATGM is an Arab jihadist, then he will certainly launch an ATGM at such a tank with "correction for Allah", without thinking about where the missile will hit, whether it will hit at all, and if will hit, then will the tank hit.
        But if a more trained fighter is sitting (lying) behind the ATGM console, then he will think about how and where to shoot, especially if the missile is without a tandem warhead. And he will probably prefer to choose a less protected target, which is exactly what these specific Syrian tankers require in this particular case.
        I have the honor.
        PS And you can hit even a very well-protected modern tank from a heavy machine gun. There were precedents. But this is an accident, and relying on the will of chance in the war ... let's say so fraught.

          Well, who knows. Actually, even without additional protection, the probability of penetration of the T-72 frontal combined armor by tandem ammunition is far from unity, what can we say about ammunition falling into the DZ block above the armor. Again, this is how it all looked like here. This is the T-62, and not modernized. Tracks on towers, shell boxes with earth on the face. But bricks and bags were used, and anything else. If someone were told that young cats smeared with condensed milk help, all the tanks would be in them. smile

        It is worth seeing how tanks were destroyed in the Donbass - many DZ had for the appearance - empty boxes (thanks to the Ukrainian ensign). For many tanks, they worked with heavy machine guns in order to remove the DZ, where mines were shot down by many rapiers.

      Tell Alexander, what is the shelf life of plates in DZ containers? Or is such a period unlimited? Apparently the supply of containers is carried out as they wear out, like spare parts for discontinued cars. Then it becomes clear why the Syrians are installing them on the modification of tanks not intended for the installation of DZ initially. Apparently, the T-72B was simply knocked out in battle for 4 years. At least in the TV pictures they are seen less and less. But even the T-54 (55) and T-62 (early modifications) flash.

        No, of course, the shelf life of DZ containers is not unlimited, because BB over time loses its quality. But note in my comment I wrote:
        the ERA units are real, but this tank did not have bonoks for attaching standard DZ blocks (possibly an old T-72 modification), so the Syrians handily installed the blocks according to the principle "I blinded it from what was."

    Looks like another BDK came in. Apparently "Contacts" was raised from warehouses, yet it has been produced since 1982. In principle, against what ISIS now has should be enough. Now, if sub-caliber shells appear, then you will have to switch to Contact-5 and higher. And of course, teach the Syrian soldiers how to properly attach to armor.

    As a result, significant uncovered areas remained.

    Obviously for the sake of "economy". One full protection for two tanks. Correctly wrote above that it is better this way than not how. And where it came from is clear. Good luck to the Syrian tankers.

    sandbags it still did not go! The main thing is that the bricks on the tape did not become glued. Of course, it would be necessary to help the guys!

    Now we’ll buy a couple of bulk carriers from the Turks and there will be tanks from storage depots.
    In general, it is clear that the Syrians are raking everything that we ourselves have to dispose of.
    Well, in some places there is a run-in of new samples.

      Well, you know, in the warehouses of the "illiquid assets" of the Russian army, there is "old stuff" in such quantity and with such quality that even after not very serious repairs, when delivered at a price slightly higher than scrap metal (in order to only recoup the "repair", i.e. de-conservation) and transportation) can be quite successfully used by third world countries in any local conflict. And for Bashar al-Assad and the Syrian army, even such an "old", but familiar and battle-tested weapon is much better than the absence thereof.
      At the same time, Russia does not need to spend money on recycling.
      I have the honor.

    I watch the Syrian army began to prepare for the offensive. And then some American bastard put the Jewels to the Ishilovites and trained them to use.

    And this warehouse with the Javelins was covered on Saturday near Idlib. Exactly two days after the receipt of information.


    In this regard, he wants to tell a recently heard anecdote:
    "Two Russian pilots are talking in Syria after departure. One says:
    - Today the headquarters of ISIS covered.
    And second:
    - What, the main headquarters?
    - No, the main one on another continent.

    So I want to ask, when, finally, the main warehouse will be covered?

      Sorry, but this is populism (((it's not sad, but this "main headquarters" cannot be bombed, however, as they cannot! Such are the realities ... The fight is on the economy and the margin of safety. Or the artificially inflated financial bubble of the US economy will collapse, or we will not be too hardy! Draw your own conclusions, we wavered in 1991. And we still slurp the consequences of this weakness! ...

    Better late than never! The heart is bleeding, watching them shoot T-55 ATGMs. The real heroes are Syrian tankers who go to battle on such junk!
