    AFV history (post WW2)
  1. From a new Predator - What type of APC is this?
  2. great photos , thanks!
  3. it won't work at such angle
  4. On Soviet AP rounds history
  5. Object 640 “Black Eagle” and it’s successors The “Object 640” also known as a “Black Eagle” was created in 1990-s by the designers of Omsk KBTM (transport machine building bureau). The tank belongs to a new generation and realizes a lot of innovative constructional decisions and arrangement which differs it from all classical Russian and western tanks. The tank uses the new design turret with low frontal profile and detachable transport and loading module. The armor protection of front hull and turret is modular design. The crew is stationed in the hull below the turret ring and completely separated from ammunition and fuel. We all know, that it was created in 90s without state financing and led to creation of 2 testing vehicles, than the idea of a whole new tank was abandoned as very complex and budget-unfriendly. But this development continued up to end of 2000-s. Several projects were realized like a T-55M6 upgrade with “black Eagle” components (turret bustle autoloader, reactive armor and so on). But state financed “Burlak” project is more interesting project. The only tank with 2 separately functioning autoloader. T-90 tank was upgraded under this project and experimental tank on T-90 chassis was created. Well, maybe it’s bad translation but give an idea about this design -
  6. Russian military robot from JSC "766 UPTK" (famous for their Uran-9 robot tank) Reminds famous ED 209
  7. In my opinnion it decresed radiation protection. And they already had diferent design TKN4 almost ready to be produced
  8. Maybe one of the most original ideas of tank redesign What to do with old T-55 tanks and T-64 which are planed to be scrapped? It was primary aimed on countries which have difficulties with modern tanks with autoloader service. The ideas presented in 2000-s by the Ukrainian 115 armor repair plant in Kharkov. The plant was without work at that time and created various interesting ideas for it’s survival. 1. Take 1 T-55 and remove turret, place it on T-64 hull – you have T-55-64 hybrid tank 2. Make a survivable heavy IFV from T-55 hull – HIFV-55 3. What to do with an old T-64 turret? Make a remote controlled unmanned defense station with concrete strengthened protection. Heavy armored fighting vehicle made on the basis of the chassis of the tank T-55 Hybrid variant of the tank T-55-64 (Modernization of the tank T-55) Battle module with 125 mm tank gun on the base of the turret of the main battle tank T-64 (BM-125-64)
  9. T-64B with panoramic sight -80s -
  10. Yes, maybe, 1-st off all Soviet's gave a requirement for 105 mm gun protection. Chief's APDS had 130 at /60, don't know how it sows itself against project 432 initial 80+140 armor at /68 as tech. project says it is 80+140 = 112 of steel. Which is ~ 300 mm of steel LOS. Suppose it won't.
  11. and heavy IFV - БМП Т-15 (Объект 149), созданная на базе универсальной гусеничной платформы "Армата"
