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

Recommended Posts

Details of the APC based on the T-64 chassis have surfaced.

34.5 tons, 700 hp engine, 30 mm gun, crew of 3, can carry 15 soldiers, 40 mm of rear armour, 82 mm of side armour + 20 mm screen + reactive armour. Front armour is 350+40 mm, allegedly resistant to 90 mm AP (who still uses that?)

I'm... fairly certain Belgium and some middle eastern countries like Kuwait and maybe Saudi Arabia still use the Cockerill Mk 8 in various light AFVs .... If that counts.

 

Maybe South Africa.

 

Clear threats to Ukraine for sure.

Anyway, compared to BMP-1 and 2 BMP-64 have much better frontal armor, that can survive older RPG-7 HEAT grenades hits. Sides are still not very good, although they are better protected than usual "paper+ cage armor". They will need plenty of time to start production of that thing.

 

At least they have a mock-up made before Ukrianian civil war to show!

They also use Kontakt-5 instead of their stupid Nozh ERA. #USSRWINS

 

Althoug, they don't have enough of Kontakt-5 to protect their tanks.

From 2 weeks ago - Ukrainian tanks counterattack on rebels position after they captured Donetsk airport.

This is "Wolfs" tank, it was hit by APFSDS round.

Another tank (left part of photo) under Putilovskiy bridge (pretty deep in rebel territory). Tank was moving to Donetsk, and rebels had a checkpoint under that bridge.

Ukrianian T-64BV (with "Wolfs" inscription) with APFSDS hit mark. AFAIK projectile did not manage to penetrate, although tank was abandoned by crew, wich was captured later and showed to journalists.

UkrOboronProm, the Ukrainian defense manufacturing corporation, is promising to increase the production of Oplot tanks from 5 in 2014 to 40 in 2015 and 120 in 2016. As one commenter pointed out "The VSU needs tanks yesterday. If the war is going to continue until 2016, in 2017 we will be fighting with tachankas."

Sad shape of Ukrainian armour. The smoke grenade launchers are gone, the projector is no longer linked up with the cannon. But look, it has some grates on the side that protect from RPGs! probably not really

Although it have magical runes "FCK PTN" which gives +100 attack against Russian Chechen Spetsnaz Armies.

"Cage armor" is not reliable.

What if you want to host UFC matches inside your AFVs though?

Your cages should be 0.9 of ball diameter to be able to stop it without making it 'pop'. Even then, you have 50% chance to stop ball from entering spectators places, which will create all sorts of havoc between football fans like fist battles for a Messi's ball(s).

I wonder if anyone currently designing an MBT (Altay or T-14 team) is learning anything from this.

 

This is the first tank vs. tank combat in over a decade.

I would imagine the Russians have more documentation on the tank combat in Ukraine than the Turkish do to base things off of.

There is nothing to learn from that conflict for tank designers, ironically. All problems with T-64-like MBTs were known years ago. Only thing that this war showed is that Ukrainian ERA "Nozh" is crap.

 

 

T-72B3 tanks near Debaltsevo. Russians Winter is coming.

T-64BV with part of side armor ERA mounted on turret, AFAIK. No idea how tracks ended up on top of the side armor skirts.

This is very important information to me.

      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.

         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!

      Hey guys. This is my first post in this forum.
       
       
       
      I want to find out sources for 2 information.
       
       
       
       
      Firstly, a friend of mine told me about the accuracy of T-80B tested in 1980s.
       
       
       
       
       
      T-80B      1000m   1500m     2000m
                      
                      87%       66%       46%
       
       
       
       
       
      I asked him where he found this data. But he told me he forgot where he did find this since too much time passed from that moment.
       
       
       
       
       
       
      The Second one is about Russian ballistic computer's range-finding rate.
       
       
      One day, one of my friends who speaks russian quite well showed me a product info. of russian(maybe ukrainian) gunner's primary sight.
       
       
      It was written that range-finding rate of the sight after laser fired-off 0.3~3.0 seconds. 
       
       
      I totally forgot the address of that product brochure.
       
       
       
      I'd be very appreciated if you help me finding links of these information.
