Chinese secret tank continues to be run in troops

66
The Beijing parade on September 3 was supposed to be the venue for the first public display of the latest so-called “mountain tank". However, even during the preparation of the grand event, it became clear - the military decided to demonstrate a secret novelty, writes Messenger of Mordovia.


Chinese secret tank continues to be run in troops


“Given the traditional closeness of the defense sector in this country, one can only guess why this happened. Although the photos of the newest light tank, which appear from time to time on the net, it is clear that the car is intensively driven around by the troops, ”the newspaper notes.



This machine, weighing about 30-ti, should replace the Type-62 tank in the PLA, which has already been practically removed from service, as morally and technically obsolete.



According to the "Bulletin", "the tank is armed with 105-mm gun and equipped with automatic loader, its fire control system borrowed from the main battle tanks."



It is noted that "the six-bearing chassis of this combat vehicle is equipped with a variable hydropneumatic suspension."

          will not be able to surprise. not that mentality. how much time do you think it takes to create your own engineering school? The creation of the tank is not only the engineers of the Uralvagonzavod, a lot of related organizations are involved. In China, the bulk of the work is hired engineers. What do you think, if something happens, how many engineers will remain in China and what will they be capable of?

Having visited Ukraine on a study tour, the California Republican told his congressional colleagues the following: "Joking aside, the Russians do not shoot down Ukrainian drones - they take them for themselves. They take them to Russian territory, where they land." The words of the congressman are quoted by the Washington Times.

          China is friends with Pakistan, and they have influence on some Afghan political (or terrorist?) Forces, there will be a sweep of some in favor of others. Plus, China has a lot of free money - this is important in a poor country, the USSR, therefore, the Afghans remember!
          In short, if they fit in there, there will be, rather, a "Soviet" version of the Afghan war, with capital construction, schools, hospitals, economic development, etc.
          China can’t compete with India, they are not risking troops there, but the whole economy, and even in the SCO Indians were accepted, sort of ...

      “We hardly know about booking.” Thickness is not an indicator of invulnerability.

      But the caliber - yes. NATO, too, seems to recognize already the insufficiency of 120-mm guns.

      And the new tank based on Almaty seemed to be conceived with a 152-mm gun.

      So in the mountains, in addition to armored personnel carriers, especially armored vehicles are not expected. The IOCs are likely to be significant, it is not in vain that they made a large tower, and by changing the geometry of the suspension it is possible to achieve an extra tilt or rise.

        At least one intelligible comment !!! It’s clear to Kot that this tank was not designed for duels with Abrams and Leopards in the mountains (they won’t crawl into the mountains). I think the main purpose of the mountain tank is anti-terrorism (fire support for the infantry against the terror and 105 caliber for the eyes). For Tibet and Xinjiang, where there are separatist movements, that’s it! And in Afghanistan (where the mountains are solid), as a person said, someone will have to restore order after the Americans leave. And with the help of air suspension it is very robust that you can change the angle of the gun (on the video of the Korean K2 it is clearly visible).

    No one knows how Chinese technology will behave in a real battle, because there is no such experience in the world. Everyone knows that Merkava is a tank of one theater, that it’s more like a roadblock on caterpillars, and in Russian tanks, in case of a tower’s defeat, the warhead detonates and the tower flies off, like a lid. And Abrams has problems with the Armed Forces of Ukraine and so on. What Chinese technology is capable of, no one really knows, this is the most non-fighting technique in the world.

        Abrams ammunition - outside the tank, in a crazy basket,
        where the shells lie heads back.
        Even if it explodes, the crew has a good chance of survival.
        Therefore, fewer tankers died in Iraq than tanks were shot down.

          Tank Abrams 11 shells are in the fighting compartment.
          And about the fire in the fighting compartment, so once I had to climb into the burning burning compartment and extinguish it with a lack of oxygen. The flame was also very high from the hatch. If there was a fire in the combat unit, it would die. But without putting out the fire, he would go to the tribunal. The tankers suffered a lot during this fire, and of course they didn’t even have the idea that the tank could be saved at the risk of its own life, jumped up like hell, then they were treated in the hospital.

    Chinese industry may surprise with unique developments in tank building. The experience of copying our objects is huge. Of interest is the weight characteristic, less than average, but more light. The appearance of the tank resembles the Belarusian development of the BRM.

    Well, to Merkava you’re in vain. Without conditionally in swamps and a forest belt it will be shitty on passability, and in the winter it will also freeze. But overall, the tank is excellent for warm terrain with a hard surface. But the trip to Moscow certainly will not pull smile
    About the detonation of our tanks, and no more than all the rest. What did not see pictures of abrams raspiradorasennyh? They detonate no worse. Do not forget about the defeat on the side of Abrams from a 30mm gun and from the rear of a heavy machine gun.

      They answered their own question! A mountain tank can be carried by forces of a given unit (platoon) over difficult terrain!
      For reference: the "Chinese platoon" is the main tactical unit of the PLA, numbering 2-2.5 million people (based on the materials of stupid anecdotes).

    Colleagues, unfortunately, the object of the application of China’s forces is currently not India (although I think the hypothetical clash of two such giants would have generated such an echo that the whole world would have started), but other countries. And the mountains in these countries are no less.
    Economic interests compel China to seek such a path for the transit of Iranian oil to its territory, which the 6th strike fleet of Amers cannot unexpectedly, purely by chance find itself on. And this path, as I said, unfortunately (why I explain below), passes through the territory of Afghanistan, or rather, through the territories previously belonging to the leader of the northern Afghan Ahmad Shah Massoud. If you pay attention to the map of this region, it becomes clear that on the way to the coveted oil, the Chinese have territories of ethnic Uzbeks and Tajiks in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
    But Pakistan since the mid-90s has been a faithful vassal of China, which even barks at Amers only when it is convenient for the owner.
    Today, even the Pakistani army is nothing more than a hotel structure of the PLA. All specialists: anti-aircraft gunners, pilots, tank crews, etc. in the army of Pakistan, absolutely not hiding this fact (given the difference in the appearance of the Chinese and Pashtuns, it is interesting how they would do it) are members of the People's Liberation Army of China. Accordingly, Pakistan, when the time comes, will not only not resist, but also with great pleasure will go along with the Chinese to pinch its neighbors (the Pashtun part of the territory of which they consider their way).
    And so that northern Afghanistan could not resist for a very long time, China needs "mountain" tanks.
    And now I’ll explain why I said unfortunately. Northern Afghanistan borders, which is characteristic of our Russian economic interests with Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. And China, this area is also very interesting.
    And this interest is not in the abundance of cotton and gratuitous labor (China has enough of its own with an abundance of it), but in rare earth metals and uranium (Uzbekistan has one of the two deposits in the world of crystalline uranium oxide, the second, by the way, in Kenya, which is already a Chinese "colony" , as well as all equatorial Africa).
    Accordingly, unfortunately in the next 5-15 years we will have to defend our strategic interests in Central Asia from our current "allies". Consequently, armored vehicles adapted for warfare in the mountains will not interfere with us either. After all, knowing the Chinese, they are now riveting these "mountain" tanks of theirs, just like Type 62 riveted, and later Type 96.

    Most likely, these tanks will be used in Tibet and in the places of residence of the Uyghurs.

    Modern China will have a very huge army of 400 million people. in the event of the outbreak of war. Even all the countries of the world with their fleets and planes will not be able to transfer this huge number of soldiers and related equipment, for example, to the region of Iraq, Syria and Israel. This is just not an impossible task now.
    But there is a prediction that China will reach its shores of the Mediterranean Sea with its 200 millionth army. The only way is overland, overcoming the mountains of the Himalayas and Tibet. Therefore, we need equipment that can move at heights, which conventional equipment cannot simply drop in due to the low oxygen content in the air and the steepness of the passes.
    I see nothing unusual or funny about this. One colonel once told me, they studied together, as his tanks conditionally fought in the Caucasus. At certain altitudes, the tanks simply did not move, lacked engine power.
