Opportunities T-72B3 checked in battle with a conditional opponent

53
Experimental tactical and fire exercises were held at the Totsky training ground (Orenburg region) tank units of the motorized rifle unit of the Central Military District, reports Rossiyskaya Gazeta with reference to the district press service.



Around 30, the upgraded T-72B3 tanks were involved in experimental integrated tactical-fire exercises. The main task of the tank was the rapid development of the offensive after the shelling of the enemy. The difference in combat shooting data is the ability to automatically track a target at distances of up to five kilometers, ”the release says.



The newspaper reminds that in March, Uralvagonzavod signed a contract with the military to upgrade the 150 T-72 tanks to the level of Б3.

"The latest control system will be installed on the armored vehicle." weapons and digital communications equipment, modern dynamic protection "Relic". The gun is an 125-2-46 5-millimeter smoothbore gun with improved ballistics and a resource. Thanks to the modernization of the automatic loader, it became possible to use the new "extended" armor-piercing sabot shells such as "Lead-1 / 2". A new sight and a thermal imager significantly increase the capabilities of a tank in an artillery duel, ”writes RG.

In addition, automatic transmissions will be installed on combat vehicles, as on the T-90MS. Practically, it will be a new tank in the old building, the newspaper notes.

          Another most significant evidence is www.youtube.com/watch?v=AkRtOSk1tps - it seems they captured the Ukrainian T 72M tank, but in fact it turned out to be T 72B3.

          Why would we step back and switch to Unitarian? Separate loading in the aggregate AZ made it possible to make our tanks in the existing weight and dimensions with a level of protection at least not lower than Western ones. One combustible sleeve is worth something - the Americans are still "testing" their AMP, while the truth is only mock-ups and until 2020 production is not even planned.

    The T-72 still has a modernization resource, and this is good news. While the "Armata" gets into the troops, the updated tank will be a good help to the country's defense.

    If there is an opportunity to improve tanks 72nd then why not! While there is no way to arm all tank units with a new Armata, let there be upgraded 72e tanks! This is also not a frail technique! And there will be an opportunity and there will be deliveries of Armata to all tank units!

    ))) It would be better if they took 20 T-72B3 tanks completely automated (they did it completely on radio control like UAVs) and in a real 10x10 battle they would have roared battle fire against each other))) then we can say yes there was a test with a conditional enemy. And they would look at the pros and cons of this tank. Better yet, buy through the front offices 10 new tanks such as Abrams or Mirkava or Leopard or some other tanks, and do the same and see how the T-72B3 will be almost in real battle against standard tanks of other countries. And so what they did in Totsk is just stupidly shooting at targets, as in a shooting gallery. winked

    The question is to the driver mechanics, probably the automatic transmission makes the life of the carrier much easier, more time is left for the overview of the terrain and an orientation where to dive if something happens.

    - automatic transmission is an order of magnitude, at least, "capricious" mechanics. Not to mention which is more expensive
    - automatic gearbox does not allow starting the tank "from a dash" (very useful method, you know)
    - "more time is left to review the terrain" YYYYYYYYY ... laughing
    - In your opinion, that is, the MV looks at each switch (intently): where does he need to ... switch ... and where does he have the clutch pedal ... YYYYYYYY laughing

      So send there "Merkavas" (especially the latest version) for verification, or they will not reach through the desert on their own. Then I hope they are in abundance in Israel, for one and check the Barmaleev air defense, because the columns must be covered with turntables. So, as they say good luck bully

    Merkava has long unitary OBPSs. I know the lengths
    but Israel has a full exchange of technology with the Americans in this area.
    I think the shells are very similar.
    Ours have a trick: OBPS with a "rocket booster". He, in fact,
    It does not accelerate, but only maintains a constant speed throughout the path of the projectile.
    This gives an extra kilometer of high "slaughter".
