Omsk specialists developed a modernization project tank T-80BV, which will significantly increase the characteristics of the domestic machine, reports Messenger of Mordovia.


Media: In Omsk, developed a project to upgrade the T-80


“The improvements will concern, first of all, the increase of firepower, protection and command controllability of the tank,” writes the author of the article, Lev Romanov, with reference to armored vehicle expert Alexey Khlopotov.

According to the expert, “a modern multichannel sight, Sosna-U, with a target tracking machine and a thermal imaging channel, will be installed on the tank, there will also be a doubler sight.”

In addition, the machine will be installed dynamic protection of the new generation "Relic", "able to withstand the most modern anti-tank weapons, including tandem anti-tank guided missiles," he said.

Not left without attention and the question of increasing the fuel efficiency of the gas turbine engine.

The machine will also be equipped with the latest ultrashort-wave radio station and a software and hardware complex for the intercom, switching and control equipment.

“Thanks to these and other innovations, the improved T-80 will be maximally unified with the T-72B3 and, by most characteristics, will compete with the best foreign models,” the author concludes.

          I completely agree. The eighties available - and there are several thousand of them - just need to be brought up to date. It would be interesting to see such a modernized car at the tank biathlon. See and figure out "whose cones are in the forest" ...

            There is the T-80U, and there is the T-80B. "U" from "B" differ as well as T-90 from T-72.

            And if you put the "eighties" in biathlon, then the "nineties" will come the skiff. Therefore, no one competes with them there.

              Why kayuk? What will be your evidence?
              Or so, boltology, sir? wink
              And biathlon is not a comparison of the capabilities of MBT but an event to popularize military service.
              Now more serious.
              The main drawback of the T-80 is its expensive and voracious gas turbine engine.
              These disadvantages cannot be radically reduced. No wonder the article modestly writes: "The issue of increasing the fuel efficiency of a gas turbine engine has not been ignored either." Without details.
              And the details are as follows.
              In short, without delving into the "jungle".
              In order to achieve a more or less acceptable flow rate, you need to significantly increase the temperature of the gas in the turbine, in this heat the dust in the air will melt and not allow the blades to work normally.
              Therefore, it is necessary to thoroughly clean the very significant amount of air needed for a gas turbine engine.
              To do this, very large-sized air purifiers are needed, which will make the dimensions and weight of the T-80 like that of Abrams and all the pros will smoothly go into cons.
              There is still something very significant, but the comment is not a textbook of a young tanker, but all explanations for those who wish have long been given in the open press.

                It is impossible to radically reduce these shortcomings.

                Peak diesel is comparable in terms of fuel consumption with gas turbine engines. At idle, he really spends less. Specialists of the Omsk Design Bureau have repeatedly said that to provide a tank equipped with a gas turbine engine with electric power, a separate compact and economical unit has long been developed. And when the time comes, the gas turbine engine starts without problems and the tank begins to move.

                So the problems with dust in the gas turbine engine were solved long ago - the "shake-up" of the unit in order to drop the accumulated dust on the blades.
                And at the military theater of operations there are various tasks, including tasks for which no one will take into account fuel consumption and its cost - therefore, they keep and modernize the T-80 (for highly specialized tasks).

          I will subscribe to your comment, at one time I myself was dumbfounded by the difference with the T-62.
          Speed ​​and ease of control, plus is not audible in the movement towards, firepower, etc., but it's high time to "update" the old man.
          Modernization of fire control, protection, communications and, importantly, lower fuel consumption will really make the T-80 modern and deadly for opponents.

    And besides, it prevents the MO from exhibiting at the tank biathlon in addition to the 72nd T-80.
    So who would have looked better ...!
    I feel like something was compressed at UVZ!;))))
    The lack of healthy competition leads to a slowdown in R&D and the introduction of developments in the metal! And this (competition) dogma in everything.
    And also the issue of pricing becomes very flexible with true competition, which is not unimportant now.
    To write off the St. Petersburg and Omsk design bureaus is the rudest miscalculation of our leadership.
    The T-80 should appear a further line of development in the next model! It is impossible to give up work on modernization and development of a gas turbine engine!

            1. For a modern tank, he "uses" normally. Compared to Western models.
            2. The engine is well adapted to the north and therefore it is necessary to sacrifice something.
            Let him eat more, but at hour X it will start up than it will be "economical" and burn a fire under it for a day.

                And how else can warm diesel fuel frozen in fuel lines? No, of course, there are autonomous heating systems, such as Webasto. But only in conditions of army operation they are of little use. And in civilian life, when things are really bad, truckers put a trough under their tractors in which they light a fire. Extreme measure, but it works.

                  In general, the T-80 in a peaceful life "runs" on kerosene, and it has much less problems with freezing. Yes, and tank heaters for diesel engines, with normal crew training, did not fail, and there is a lot of sense from them. Especially those who served on the T-64 can testify to this ... a very finicky car

          First, 1000 hp the engine of the very first modification of the tank is the T-80B. The T-80U has an engine with a capacity of 1250 hp.

          Secondly, 1000 hp GTE = 1000 hp diesel engine. According to the law of physics. But the amount of engine power that goes to auxiliary systems in a tank with a diesel engine is prohibitive.

        If you think that the tank has a HELICOPTER engine, then to put it mildly, you are mistaken !!! An original gas turbine engine was developed for the T-80 at Klimov, capable of operating under the operating conditions of the tank. This engine differs from a helicopter, like a rocket from a motorcycle.

      I agree with your opinion. Betting on one KB is at least not far-sighted! I always need competition! I don’t understand the MO’s decision to write off the T-80! The machine is excellent! And replacing the engine and suo will make it a clear competitor to the T-72Б3! Although most likely here it’s not about the quality of the machines, but about lobbying certain products by a certain design bureau.

                True. It’s not entirely clear to me what this storage is. According to the regulations for the storage of automotive equipment, she has to be serviced once every 5 years. I think the same with tanks. If serviced as expected - then it is costly, if not serviced - then without major repairs you will not be removed from storage.

          The t-80 has no special advantages over the modern versions of the t-72 / 90. The early versions of the t-72 were inferior to the t-80 as a suo, and the tanks were about the same in terms of security and firepower. The T-72 / 90 ammunition shell protection is better due to the location of the propelling charges in the housing.

Overhaul was made for this money, a new gun was installed, a new engine, pine-u sight, remote control, modernized suo. The disadvantage is the lack of a remote combat module and network-centric technologies.

          Mobility and ease of starting at low temperatures. The gas turbine engine is constantly operating at maximum torque and the distribution of this moment is already carried out in the tank's transmission. T-80 with GTE and T-72 is like a sports supercar and a business sedan. As for starting at low temperatures ... You try to warm up the diesel at temperatures below -30 degrees. Beyond the Arctic Circle, the equipment involved in the work is not jammed throughout the long polar night. But for gas turbine engines this does not present serious problems. But the trouble is that the Omsk plant today is part of the UVZ and there are few hopes that this modernization will take place. If they’ll just press hard on top ...

          You confuse 2 models. T-80UD is a modification of the T-80U with a diesel engine. Until t-80u there were still bv. And the Kharkov engine was chosen because of its size.
          In the USSR, at the end they wanted to come to a unification of the tank fleet with options for the region. And yet with the towers that de essence. The unification of the fighting compartment with a tank designed for war in Europe, the t-64bv and t-80bv not in vain have the same towers.

    The design and manufacture of single samples of the GTE was Klimovsky. The first samples are most likely that Kharkov is possible, that the plant is named after Malyshev or something from the south of the Ukrainian SSR, but I can't say for sure. Serial production of GTD-1000, this is Kaluga. But that plant doesn't seem to exist anymore. And it was not a helicopter GTE as some write about it here. From the "helicopter" there was only the name of the design bureau.

    Here the question is apparently not so much the need for modernization, but the need for unification. For the T-80, you have to learn the mechanical drivers according to a separate program, and if you do not unify the equipment with the T-72B3, then the rest of the crew will have to learn to use other (outdated) sights and radio stations, and this is just plain silly. It’s easier to modernize and at least teach commanders in a uniform manner. Well, plus a new dynamic protection, apparently the old one is no longer stupidly produced.

      Replacing the walkie-talkie is a standard option, even during major repairs. The thermal imager needs to be unified. Especially in the BV if it does not change his memory and no. The commander’s sight is better there. Despite being outdated. Well, if you do not take into account the biathlon version of the t-72b3.

        I don’t argue, during discussions on the forum it is critically important which sight is better and which is worse, there are no questions.
        But in real life, something else is important. The production and accumulation of spare parts is important, the training of technicians and repairmen is important, the training of the crew is important. Here, the smaller and more uniform the nomenclature of equipment is, the better. Ideally, one complex of sights, one complex of radio communications, for all armored vehicles.

    The T-80 should appear a further line of development in the next model! It is impossible to give up work on modernization and development of a gas turbine engine!

    We are moving towards the unification of technology, and the T80, a completely different machine with 72/90, has little in common, so most people refuse it in favor of 72/90, and it will most likely be exported after the update.

    And what doesn’t drive anything on the T-80 chassis?
    Tank-box, fill whatever you want;)
    It is impossible to refuse GTD and alternative OMS. Failure looks like a step forward and two backward. Competition and alternative gives rise to progress.
    And what about a pain helicopter at one company? But what about MI-28 and KA-52?
    Do we have one type of fighter? But what about the SU-35 and MIG-35?

    Thanks to these and other innovations, the improved T-80 will be unified as much as possible with the T-72B3 and, in most characteristics, it will compete with the best foreign models

    It seems to me the main thing is to somehow adapt the AZ from the t-72b3. MZ t-80 is its main drawback.
    T-80u by and large, in addition to replacing the thermal imager with a pine, you only need the above and preferably 2a46-5. DZ there and so contact-5 with a normal location. In BV, of course, you have to change it.

    Initially, the T-80 was a great tank. High fuel consumption is associated with poor training of mechanics. And not a solarium there, but an expensive kerosene. BUT there are a lot of advantages. Both in servicing the power system, and in one important quality for our northern country. In winter, the T-80 winds up at the click of a button wink , and with a diesel engine still smudge and smudge. Those who started domestic diesel engines at temperatures below -30 will understand me. A lot of talk about replacing the OMS. With me, in the 90's, from the T-80, a dispute, sub-caliber, at a range of 2000m, cut the rail strictly by mark.

    It is unfortunate that they have stolen production at Kirov, turned Omsk into a Tagil rembase! According to the implementation of the LMS, even the 219p is cooler than 72 a head! Both the side wind sensor and the tracking machine, intuitive preparation for the shot. A real multi-fuel! Insensitive to heat, sand and dust, virtually silent on the go! If TC / RT consumption wins, it will be a masterpiece! Yes, the nightlight was shitty, without a range finder channel, there was not enough triplex in front of the gunner, like in 64, but by the combination of properties 72 and its derivatives do not roll around!

    Gradually, it is necessary to continue the process of unification of the tank fleet. Today, we have the t-72, t-80 and t-90 in service, each of which has many modifications. Soon the t-14 army will go to the troops. There are still t-64, t-62 and t-55 tanks of many varieties in storage. Total, our military is dealing with four tanks in service and three in storage. 3.14ndos is armed with M1 abrams of several modifications and some old M60 are left in storage. In the USSR, for some reason, several MBT models were immediately adopted for service. The ideal option would be to choose the best tank according to the results of state tests and put it into production at all tank plants.

            The t-64 had a very problematic boxer engine, which required careful maintenance and had a low resource. This problem has not been resolved so far. The placement of ammunition on the t-64 / t-80 provides less protection than on the t-72 / t-90. The main drawback of the t-72 early series is the lack of normal suo. In recent series, this flaw has been eliminated. Practically, the t-90 tank is a modernized t-72b, it was formerly called the t-72bu.

    The T-80 and its modernization have not yet said their last word. An excellent tank, and with digitally controlled GTE, fuel consumption is actually reduced. And competition is the engine of progress. And then UVZ relaxed, Omsk turned into a rembase. And 80-k in warehouses - wow, how many. What to dispose of them?

    Again, the question of government procurement.

Everything is just for, success, it will turn out ... But what about the order from the army, what are they want to Where are the tenders? Here are the tank brigades .. what kind of UAV-based intelligence they have. What tasks should these UAVs solve? How are they integrated, can they provide coordinates of targets, in which information systems, for which weapons, what radius should they have what is the duration of the flight, on the basis of which mobile means ... These requirements should be formed by the army, based on the tasks to be solved, on the basis of tactics and strategy of warfare. But they don’t exist, so there is no tactics and strategy? I have the impression that ours do not know how to fight, in modern conditions, therefore they don’t know what it takes ... Chaos with all the consequences.
