The Vietnamese military returned Soviet ACS-85 to service


“The party ASU-85 was supplied by the armed forces of the USSR Armed Forces as part of the massive Soviet military aid during the 1979 war of the Chinese-Vietnamese war. For quite a long time, the ASU-85 in Vietnam were in storage, but now the VNA has returned some of these facilities to service, considering them useful for operations in difficult terrain, ”the resource writes.



In May, 2015-th were the first firing of the recovered self-propelled guns. During the repair work, the machines were equipped with DShK machine guns.



Help bmpd: “ASU-85 (“ Object 573 ”, officially designated as ASU-85) was developed by the Design Bureau of the Mytishchi Engineering Plant on the basis of the light chassis tank PT-76 and was mass-produced by this enterprise from 1959 to 1966 to equip the USSR Airborne Forces. These vehicles were equipped with separate self-propelled artillery divisions of the airborne divisions (one division in the division, the staff of the division 31, then 30 units). ”

    The ace is also an ace in Africa, and our Soviet-style armaments in poor countries are still in great demand, Soviet means excellent, in ancient Soviet times this was said with some irony, but now it turns out that it was so in reality.

        if not mistaken - in the back of the M-30? it would be better to attach the D-30. easier and shelling can be arranged in a circle. true on the sides only reduced charges.

        This is clear, just how does the cork protect against fragments without speaking about the pool? Or do they have helmets only in shape as before from cork, and now from different material?

    Vietnam is not doing well if such rarities are returned to service. Yet 85-mm is not enough in modern times. And the armor is rather weak.

      С northern neighbor. smile There was already in 1979 the "First Socialist War".

      And now, despite the improvement of relations with China, Vietnam is still wary of China. And there is something: the Vietnamese have an excellent example of Myanmar before their eyes, in which China, despite seemingly good relations with the central government, actively supports all kinds of national separatists, including the rebel army of the National Democratic Alliance.

      So friendship is friendship, and the Vietnamese prefer to keep the powder on the northern border dry. Resuscitation ASU-85 - this is one of the answers to many Chinese LT, designed just for action in the jungle and rough terrain.

            They have few roads.
            EMNIP in the first socialist set of defense lines was configured.
            Large-caliber machine guns stood there, sectors were shot. And so every 2-3 km.
            The ammunition ran out - retired to the next frontier, good not far. )))
            IMHO will be prepared closed artillery positions for firing at a very specific point. And that’s all ...))))

    By the way, the Czechs proved that if you put a power booster on the T-34 and modern shock absorbers, you get quite a so-so tank for the poor (by the way, the Ukrainian army secretly used the T-34 for training purposes, kill God I do not understand why)

    Beautiful car, Vietnam will not be engaged in landing, and 85mm by today's standards, only shoot at BMP. 100mm MT-12 construction can not stand, but you can put 100mm low ballistics from BMP-3. And shoot Chinese tanks at cumulative tanks and ATGMs through the barrel. And OF action will be good. To combat the descendants of the T-54-62, it is quite suitable.

    History ... Apparently from the inability to acquire or do something worthwhile, the Vietnamese took such a step. Alas, the SU-85 is outdated, there is no armor, no turret, the gun is weak. We used it for another, it was made for the airborne forces.

    It is not necessary to consider the Vietnamese non-prodigal, they put on four bones (lobster) the United States, which excelled them in everything except one.
    It is clearly stated ".... counting them useful for operations in difficult terrain. "

    This machine can easily fight even with modern tanks, on-board projection, from a distance of 1-1,5 km, because Since most tanks are designed to be affected by cumulative ammunition, armor-piercing shells will not have any special problems with this. And given the history of the use of armored vehicles in the Vietnam War (1964-1975), it can be assumed that these vehicles will be used precisely from ambushes, especially when destroying supply columns and supporting infantry in difficult terrain for heavier armored vehicles. I also want to note that the effectiveness of armored vehicles, especially for modern models, directly depends on their tactical use, rather than on their filling.

      What are you talking about? Tanks are designed for all types of ammunition, they have armor, screens, DZ, KAZ.
      And about ambushes - it's easier to mine roads. Tea, not World War II in the yard. Nobody will now go on the attack without reconnaissance - and the thermal imagers will look for any ambush, after it the artillery and aircraft will work, only then the soldiers will go. You will return the bows to the armament - silently and arrows poisoned drinks
