   More about Nigerian MRAP

Quote

   The Nigerian Armed Forces adopted the Ezugwu (Mount) armored vehicle developed and released in Nigeria. The ceremonial transfer of armored cars to representatives of the national army was held in the presence of President Mohammad Bukhari.
 

   The armored car Ezugwu (Mountain) 4x4 was developed by the Nigerian state corporation Defense Industries Corporation of Nigeria (DICON). The car was named in honor of Major General Victor Ezugwu, known for his efforts in the fight against the banned extremist organization Boko Haram.

   According to the declared characteristics, it is able to withstand the explosion of 12 kg of explosive under the wheels and 6.75 kg under the bottom of the hull, has an independent suspension. It is assumed that the armored car is created on the Tatra 4×4 chassis.
 

   The DICON corporation, which developed this armored car, said that its height is 2 meters 63 cm. It is equipped with a 615 hp diesel engine (according to other sources - a Chinese-made WD615 turbo diesel engine, 380 hp), which allows transportation from 12 to 16 people (not specified, with or without a crew). It has two turrets rotating 360 degrees with a mounted 12.7 mm DShK and a 7.62 mm machine guns. The armored car is equipped with thermal imagers and a system of all-round cameras. It is reported that the Nigerian armed forces intend to acquire up to 130 Ezugwu armored vehicles.

And it has slovakian produced DShKM (evident from muzzle brake). Yes, the old gun is still in production. The vehicle itself seems to be quite low quality, at least it is my impression.

Are you sure it's produced in Slovakia? It used to be produced in Zbrojovka Vsetín (Czechia today) for the Czechoslovak army but the production ended decades a go. I know about some very low volume production in Vysoké Mýto, Czechia, but AFAIK not for military use.

Absolutely sure. The Kolarms factory was even visited by the hungarian gun magazine "Kaliber", with a very good report about the developments there. DSKM is called "MG1270", with minor modifications and modern production methods (CNC).

Something interesting is that on the website, the DSKM is fitted with the normal muzzle brake, but in the gun magazine, on all photos you saw a simple welded brake, like the one you see on the nigerian armored car.

Czech army received the first two KOVS and another two KOVVŠ vehicles (variants of Pandur II CZ) from Tatra Defence. KOVS is a mobile radio post and KOVVŠ is a mobile command post. Overall it shall be 20 new vehicles in these two variants.

      Shortly after Jeeps_Guns_Tanks started his substantial foray into documenting the development and variants of the M4, I joked on teamspeak with Wargaming's The_Warhawk that the next thing he ought to do was a similar post on the T-72.
       
      Haha.  I joke.  I am funny man.
       
      The production history of the T-72 is enormously complicated.  Tens of thousands were produced; it is probably the fourth most produced tank ever after the T-54/55, T-34 and M4 sherman.
       
      For being such an ubiquitous vehicle, it's frustrating to find information in English-language sources on the T-72.  Part of this is residual bad information from the Cold War era when all NATO had to go on were blurry photos from May Day parades:
       

       
      As with Soviet aircraft, NATO could only assign designations to obviously externally different versions of the vehicle.  However, they were not necessarily aware of internal changes, nor were they aware which changes were post-production modifications and which ones were new factory variants of the vehicle.  The NATO designations do not, therefore, necessarily line up with the Soviet designations.  Between different models of T-72 there are large differences in armor protection and fire control systems.  This is why anyone arguing T-72 vs. X has completely missed the point; you need to specify which variant of T-72.  There are large differences between them!
       
      Another issue, and one which remains contentious to this day, is the relation between the T-64, T-72 and T-80 in the Soviet Army lineup.  This article helps explain the political wrangling which led to the logistically bizarre situation of three very similar tanks being in frontline service simultaneously, but the article is extremely biased as it comes from a high-ranking member of the Ural plant that designed and built the T-72.  Soviet tank experts still disagree on this; read this if you have some popcorn handy.  Talking points from the Kharkov side seem to be that T-64 was a more refined, advanced design and that T-72 was cheap filler, while Ural fans tend to hold that T-64 was an unreliable mechanical prima donna and T-72 a mechanically sound, mass-producible design.
       
      So, if anyone would like to help make sense of this vehicle, feel free to post away.  I am particularly interested in:
       
      -What armor arrays the different T-72 variants use.  Diagrams, dates of introduction, and whether the array is factory-produced or a field upgrade of existing armor are pertinent questions.
       
      -Details of the fire control system.  One of the Kharkov talking points is that for most of the time in service, T-64 had a more advanced fire control system than contemporary T-72 variants.  Is this true?  What were the various fire control systems in the T-64 and T-72, and what were there dates of introduction?  I am particularly curious when Soviet tanks got gun-follows-sight FCS.
       
      -Export variants and variants produced outside the Soviet Union.  How do they stack up?  Exactly what variant(s) of T-72 were the Iraqis using in 1991?

      -WTF is up with the T-72's transmission?  How does it steer and why is its reverse speed so pathetically low?

      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".
       
       
       
      Chapter 1: Where to look, what to see.
       
      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!
