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

Recommended Posts

After watching most of those photos...

 

Bulat MB is simply bad. Mainly because of carousel design.? But then why not redesigning turret.

Are there some photos of Nóż actually working how it was supposed?

Do photos/vids confirm that Ukrainian forces were using outdated totally not applicable for asymmetric conflict tactics?

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)

Kharkiv Morozov had this interesting T-62 upgrade proposal:

The upgrade package was to include the 5TDF engine and associated sidebox transmissions (essentially similar to what the T-64 uses).  Kontakt-5, or something similar, an APS and sideskirts were to be added to improve protection.  The 115mm gun would be replaced with a 120mm NATO-spec cannon and the fire control system would have been comprehensively modernized.

 

Save for the engine, this seems like a very good upgrade package, although I do wonder how much it would cost compared to, you know, just buying a new tank.

      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!

      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.
