Russian Tanks;they still prefer to improve existing designs

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Russia’s Huge Tank Force
(well, not really, but still interesting )

Quote:
With regards to protection, the T-80BVM uses Relikt ERA, putting the protection roughly on par with the T-72B3. The layout of the Relikt armor seems to be a rough equal of that on the T-72B3, with a V shaped ring of plates around the turret. The T-80BVM overall is a roughly comparable tank to the T-72B3, with better tactical mobility. However, it lacks the advanced independent commander thermal sight capability present on the T-72B3M.

The T-90M “Breakthrough-3” is the third MBT in development. In January 2017 it was reported that all T-90 tanks in Russian service will undergo this modernization. These tanks are receiving deeper modernizations than the T-72B3, with the new 2A82 gun slated to be installed — the current T-90M, T-72B3 and T-80BVM use modernized versions of the original 2A46 gun used on the original designs.

The new gun allows for the use of longer rounds, increasing the possible penetration of each shot. The caliber remains the same — 125 millimeters — and allows for compatibility with legacy ammunition for other types of rounds. The T-90M includes an independent commander’s thermal sight for hunter-killer capability.

A thermal gunner’s sight is also included, however reports conflict as to the models, with some saying that the sight will be the Irbis-K gunner’s thermal sight with all-Russian internal components.

The formula works for Russia. They tried making a big jump with the T-64 and they had nothing but problems. The T-72 was not really a large improvement over the T-64, but it used proven technology. The simple versions of the T-72 sold well abroad.

Blaming the Las Vegas massacre on gun owners is like blaming 9-11 on frequent fliers.

Vlad seems confident that his tanks can do any job..-







PS- Speaking of Ukraine, I organised a Combat Mission:Black Sea wargame tournament (Russia vs Ukraine) a couple of years ago at the Blitzkrieg Club (below)-
