Ukrainian armor - Oplot-M, T-64M Bulat and other.

Recommended Posts

Something to look forward to for this summer.

Do we already have a list of the participants this year (apart from Germany, Ukraine and the US)?

   So those T-84s were repaired to be used in... European tank competition. I thought that they will be used for parades or at least flashed their skirts somewhere not that far from DPR/LPR.

I'm like 100% positive that if Israel ever participated in such things, it would send the oldest variant of Merkava Mark 2 it has available. I guarantee it.

People in the IDF have different priorities. It's why we dont have nice things like parades. Instead they only show new stuff in actual combat like a bunch of peasants. The internet is the new frontier guys!

War is something i saw in Ukraine, in Isreal it is more like clashes and anti-terrorist operations.

Ukraine only had maybe serious conflict at the beginning of that war.

Illovaisk, Debaltsevo were full scale combat and were way more serious than clashes in Slavyansk.

Why?

 

Some of these Ukrainian proposals really seem to be throwing every envelope sketch at the wall and trying to see what sticks. As far as I can tell, that has been the origin of most Ukrainian offers since the 90s.

   According to the magazine "Jane's Defense Weekly" in the article Jiri Kominek "Czechoslovak Group exports IFVs and SPGs to Ukraine", the Czech private defense-industrial association Czechoslovak Group (CSG) will supply Ukraine with a significant number of old infantry fighting vehicles BMP-1 and 122-mm self-propelled 2S1 "Gvozdika" howitzers under the contract with a total value of "several hundred million CZK," according to CSG.

They will be most likely used as SPGs, but news timing is funny.

      Hello, my friends and Kharkovites, take a sit and be ready for your brains to start to work - we are going to tell you a terrible secret of how to tell apart Soviet tanks that actually works like GLORIOUS T-80 and The Mighty T-72 from Kharkovites attempt to make a tank - the T-64. Many of capitalists Westerners have hard time understanding what tank is in front of them, even when they know smart words like "Kontakt-5" ERA. Ignoramus westerners!
       
       
         Because you are all were raised in several hundreds years old capitalism system all of you are blind consumer dummies, that need big noisy labels and shiny colorful things to be attached to product X to be sold to your ignorant heads and wallets, thats why we will need to start with basics. BASICS, DA? First - how to identify to which tank "family" particular MBT belongs to - to T-64 tree, or T-72 line, or Superior T-80 development project, vehicles that don't have big APPLE logo on them for you to understand what is in front of you. And how you can do it in your home without access to your local commie tank nerd? 
       
       
         Easy! Use this Putin approved guide "How to tell appart different families of Soviet and Russian tanks from each other using simple and easy to spot external features in 4 steps: a guide for ignorant western journalists and chairborn generals to not suck in their in-depth discussions on the Internet".

      T-64 - The Ugly Kharkovite tank that doesn't work 
       
         We will begin with T-64, a Kharkovite attempt to make a tank, which was so successful that Ural started to work on their replacement for T-64 known as T-72. Forget about different models of T-64, let's see what is similar between all of them.
       
       
       

       
       
         
       
       
      T-72 - the Mighty weapon of Workers and Peasants to smash westerners
       
         Unlike tank look-alike, made by Kharkovites mad mans, T-72 is true combat tank to fight with forces of evil like radical moderate barbarians and westerners. Thats why we need to learn how identify it from T-64 and you should remember it's frightening lines!
       

       
       
       
      The GLORIOUS T-80 - a Weapon to Destroy and Conquer bourgeois countries and shatter westerners army
       
         And now we are looking at the Pride of Party and Soviet army, a true tank to spearhead attacks on decadent westerners, a tank that will destroy countries by sucking their military budgets and dispersing their armies in vortex of air, left from high-speed charge by the GLORIOUS T-80!

      This shall be the general thread for all things soviet tanks. I shall start by posting an article I just wrote for my blog. I would recommend Archive Awarness which is an excellent blog about Soviet tanks and their experiences with other nation's tanks.
