The Chinese and Belarusian military will perform in Russia on tank biathlon on their vehicles, reports Messenger of Mordovia.


Belarusians will bring improved T-72 to tank biathlon


As previously reported, the Chinese are likely to perform in their modernized tanks Type-96. “These combat vehicles have a number of improvements, such as modified tracks and track rollers, as well as a new cleaning and air conditioning system. However, the most serious change in comparison with the tanks that we had earlier was the presence of a significantly improved engine. According to some estimates, its power can be 1300 hp, which is significantly more than the Russian T-72B3 in the 2016 version, ”writes the author of the article, Lev Romanov.

The Belarusian team will become another strong participant in biathlon.

“Last Monday,“ VoenTV Belarus ”posted on youtube.com a report“ Preparing for a tank biathlon - 2016 ”. On the video, among the usual T-72B with mounted dynamic protection (DZ), there are tanks that strongly resemble Russian T-72B3 of the first releases. They also installed a modern multi-channel sight "Sosna-U", which was developed and produced in Belarus. There is also a wind sensor, ”the publication says.



The author notes that the Belarusian tank, as well as the first Russian T-72B3, “on the right side of the tower, at the place where the infrared projector was located, is currently showing a“ bald patch ”- there is no dynamic protection there.” However, "and in the opposite side of the gun, the DM blocks for the convenience of the driver are also removed."

The main difference from the Russian T-72 modernized is the use of the tracked ribbons of the old design on the “allied” tank.

“Since Belarus does not have the ability to independently produce or modify engines, then surely the power of the power plant is the same as the Russian tank, so there will be no mobility advantage,” writes Romanov.



And, nevertheless, the opportunity to speak on his technique saves Belarusians from retraining in Alabino to a new modification of the tank for them. “Each tank has its own“ character ”and guests from the neighboring republic have probably thoroughly studied the features of their vehicles,” which will allow them to more confidently fight for the main prize of the competition, he concludes.

      Most likely, Belarusians will not bother on the chassis. Their strong point is electronic filling, sights, optics ...
      The Chinese, however, "conjured" with the engine, want to surprise with something. Information was slipping about new armor-piercing shells, with a depleted uranium core. Perhaps something worthwhile happened.

        What nafig depleted uranium in competitions? No one in their right mind will allow the use of toxic heavy metals on their territory. Uranium is possible only by testing its samples at the proving grounds, but practical shooting only with tungsten.

          I’ll tell you a little secret:
          Today, all armor-piercing-submunition shells both in us and in NATO have depleted uranium cores, just this is the most effective option for armor penetration. Every tanker who graduated from a tank school knows this. yes
          These shells do not explode, it’s just an iron bar with a uranium core inside, which penetrates the tank’s armor due to its increased mass and high initial speed.

            What does the nuclear weapons have to do with it? We are talking about the CHEMICAL properties of uranium, as one of the most aggressive representatives of heavy metals. Plus its pyrophoricity with the formation of volatile compounds in the defeat of targets.

              We are talking about the CHEMICAL properties of uranium, as one of the most aggressive representatives of heavy metals.

              Depleted uranium is naturally toxic. Lead is toxic, plastic, even pure oxygen is poison. But it is less toxic than many heavy metals and is very weakly radioactive, due to the long half-life.
              Moreover, the Americans do not care a single gram of comfort ... and the health of their tankers is on their side ... they use this very uranium, on the Abrams, to make inserts in the armor of the front of the hull and the front of the turret request

          All previous games used BOPS: why did they invent a bicycle, why did they shoot and will always use the depletion ... The body material of the active part is “material B” (alloy based on uranium-32)

          If, of course, they take 3BM44, then there is no uranium and the residence permit alloy is coming, but I think that they will give them a lift and will plow ...

          It’s just a heavy metal, which exceeds lead in gravity and is not inferior in strength to iron, has a radioactivity that is very slightly higher than the natural radiation background hi

          A colleague who would have ended up arguing about tank shells and cores with depleted uranium (although I did not say a word and did not even suggest that they could be used in biathlon), I rummaged on the Internet.
          I found a note that as part of the Paint project, a new projectile is being developed to simulate a tank duel battle. It can be used in the entire cycle of exercises, including shooting at targets and practical targets of a conditional opponent. The affected object is not destroyed, but only marked. An important feature of the ammunition is the possibility of its use in the presence of a large crowd of people.
          "The development is expected to make Tank Biathlon even more spectacular."

          The Chinese "Type 96" has a 125 mm ZPT-98 (unlicensed copy of the 2A46M), that is, the same gun as ours. Accordingly, no problems with shells are expected.hi

          I started a conversation about the Chinese, who prepared for the competition by cranking the engine, and mentioned a shell for the same tank. I did not write that it will be used in biathlon.
          My opponent, apparently decided to show off erudition and already linked this information with biathlon request
          At the same time, they are trying to convince me that the depleted uranium core and the "nuclear bonba" are one and the same laughing

        narrow-eyed can’t do anything from scratch, of course, the completion of our B46 diesel engine, we increased the engine capacity, put a double turbocharger, something like this, everything is to the detriment of the engine’s life, but it’s enough for ten thousand run ...

          The Chinese overestimate the parameters, like two fingers .... We made a reference engine, polished the air, balanced the crank with the piston, valves to the ideal, the piston and piston gaps to the minimum possible, launched them on the stand, took off the characteristics, all honestly. Only now, the engine for the rally, and the engine for the production car, these are two big differences, despite the similar parameters. So this is even without speeding to the detriment of motor resources request

          Well, that doesn't mean that. Forcing is to take power to the detriment of the resource, and to improve it is a purely harsher manufacturing technology, balancing and features, such as improving the purge and the quality and distribution of the fuel mixture with air in the combustion chamber. There it can even grow motor resources, but each engine can be brought up like this, I don’t even know what is more expensive, to build a robot line with control at every step, or manually, with diagnostics, stick an individually prepared engine on each tank. But, for the competition, just so that there will be no breakdowns, do not expect the Chinese to have the first or second laughing

    Z.Y. when I served in the USSR as an urgent in tank in Belarus, first training in Pecs near Borisov, then in the 1 th brigade of the 5 KLA in Minsk [Uruchye], we sometimes called Belarus itself a potato republic, and sometimes a tank one. Sooo many of them were there.

    The upgraded version of the T-72B3 for tank biathlon. It differs from the basic version by the presence of a panoramic thermal imaging device of the commander, an engine with a power of 1130hp, a gear shift automaton and a motion control system with a speech informant of critical operating modes of nodes.
