Nicaragua will receive the Russian T-72B1

In the near future, the Nicaraguan Armed Forces will receive a substantial revision of the Russian Tanks T-72B1, reports the Bulletin of Mordovia with reference to the blog bmpd.


Nicaragua will receive the Russian T-72B1


According to the blog, "information about the upcoming delivery to this Latin American country of fifty armored vehicles from the presence of the Russian Defense Ministry was made public in the spring of 2015 of the year." The 61 Armored Repair Plant in the Leningrad Region was to repair and upgrade.

“Upgraded vehicles are equipped with a round-the-clock sight of the Sosna-U gunner PN-72. The commander had at his disposal a round-the-clock panoramic sight of the Falcon Eye PKP-72 with a third-generation thermal imaging camera, ”the publication reports.

In addition, the tanks are equipped with "automatic target tracking, chassis information and control system and navigation system." Machines received new stabilizers for guns and anti-aircraft machine-gun systems with remote control.

According to the resource, “there is also an auxiliary power unit, which provides power to the tank when the main engine is off, which saves the life of the main engine and saves fuel.”

It is somewhat surprising that the tank left is not very effective by modern standards DZ series "Contact-1". “But, in general, the T-72B1, modernized for Nicaragua, thanks to the commander’s panoramic sight and remote machine-gun installation, is far superior to the T-72B3 that entered the Russian army,” the author concludes.

    They are selling mothballed equipment, well, what if you decide to adopt the "Armata". Then you can sell something.

      Yes, only "FOR".

      The question is, why are we upgrading tanks for sale better than buying into our army. What is the price of our soldier less than foreign?

        If the author wrote that this machine is better than the B3, then this does not mean that it is. Tanks going to our army have better frontal armor, weapons, and mobility.

          Still need to take into account the fact that the order for B3 from 2016 is slightly changed. And this is a completely different tank.

              1130 horses, a relict as a DZ, with the DZ being hung on the sides. As I understand it, the ZIP boxes were moved, and also DZ hung. Lattices at MTO. New gun, automatic target tracking. Improved chassis, mine protection. Cameras with a display for the driver. And that's not all, look for yourself.

          these are just our tanks that were in storage, they were modernized and sold.
          and rightly so, it’s better for us to buy a rebar for the proceeds. and if you keep all the junk. then we would have tens of thousands of T-34s.

        Let me try to answer: IMHO they are doing it right, while decisions are being made today - where to go? Metal is aging both physically and mentally, with each next year the depreciation will only increase, and the cost will fall. There are no miracles, nothing eternal.

        They will sell there, something is here - you look and accumulate money on modern systems.

        We still have a lot of T-55, if you believe the conversations. It’s worth starting to alter them (convert) for different projects, while they can still move ... I don’t understand something why this technique is idle as dead capital, if it can bring at least some benefit to the “popular” farm - some tractors, tugs, tractors, all-terrain vehicles, the same firefighters in the taiga, to attach tanks. But you never know for what needs? And in the military sphere, you can find use in auxiliary roles of some kind of radio stations, radio gooseneck antennas, radars, anti-aircraft missile systems, etc. In addition, due to the escalation of hysteria, it became not so calm on the western border - in all seriousness, if they begin to increase their contingent, and this will happen as 2x2 (no matter what they say), we need to think about creating fortifications ... that a completely different era, an accurate weapon, again, finances will be required and they will, as usual, be bullied, etc., etc. But nevertheless, if you think wisely in the age of the highest opportunities competently over the system of fortifications with ubiquitous camouflage, then in which case it can be very useful - the battles for the Donetsk airport confirmed this. And here the good old T-55, T-64 can again come in handy.

          Somewhere near Irkutsk there is a platform with old tanks. A friend of mine told me a pilot. Huge, over the horizon. They say the strategic stock of steel.

        Yes, Alex.
        White eagle is exported.
        Development of 61 BTRZ and Special Repair.
        Since the 12 year, he has been dragged around the exhibitions.

        For Nicaragua, since September last year, these machines are redone.

      The article on the sale didn’t talk, yes and it’s funny with Nicaragua to talk about the sale - they never returned the money anyway

    All is correct. In the soft underbelly of the USA, one must act more actively. And be friends and trade. That's just alarming that the Nicaraguan Canal is inaudible.

    By the way, at one time, information flashed that Nicaragua was ordering two missile boats, if I am not mistaken, of project 12418. Can you hear nothing about this contract?

    Well, for the protection of the canal under construction, not otherwise. Once ordered, then there is a need. Crews still have to train.

      Channel shares will be given away and Russia will cut coupons every year. And also remember the truth: You don't need a lot of mind to buy a palace, but you need a lot of mind to keep it. ”They will come to us for spare parts, and we will clean warehouses near Armata.

    Would sell for money (tanks from the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, bought on budget) and distribute through veteran councils to WWII veterans by May 9th. And so they will re-register the virtual shares of the Nicaraguan channel through non-virtual offshore. The press is silent what - how much.

      Do you know how many veterans are left? They should be 90.

    As for the 54 and the rest of the old weapons, I also thought why they weren’t selling, there are several answers to these questions. For example, Afghanistan very much asked for our equipment, but not modern, but old, because for a complex new one they have no non-repair management specialists. The same thing in our country that we have been massively called up from the reserve and retrained, no. And now about how many spare parts of shells are still stored for this equipment in our USSR manufactured in large quantities and we have them in reserve. And what about the border, we have problem states that are not states at all, but rather than plugging the Garnets without tanks.

    Of course, it is necessary to upgrade and sell old tanks. The only question is, what will they pay us for them? Bananas again?
