Basically what this whole thing means is that Emperor Palputin will conquer Galaxy with Space Marines and T-72s. T-72B3s to be precise.   I posted this on other Capitalist internet site 3 mo

For future use

Hey guys, look, a photo of Armata in Syria was posted!    Totally real!

Ok thanks, but I thought Russia never actually purchased any BMPT's in the first place? 

It didn't, hopefully it doesn't. And for some reason someone was stupid enough to think it was even a good idea in the first place.

Why some have actually purchased it is beyond me.

Looks cool, not gonna lie before I joined the US Army and became a Tanker myself I thought it was a interesting concept. Now that I know what I know I'd be a pretty terrible vehicle realistically.

Looks like there are 3 ding-dongs on the left side of the turret, and one more on the right. Can anyone make an educated guess?

EDIT: Fug, these are smoke grenade launchers. 

There's a nice flat area on the side of the turret. Was it that hard to put it there?

This turret is mock up, so details can be left out.

This T-15 is what the BMPT should have been.

   Add some sort of light UAV-copter and 1 of soldier inside with monitor - T-15 would get a better situational awareness than BMPT. In fact, a squad of soldiers that T-15 carry, could have increase it anti-infantry capability beyond BMPT's 5 crewmembers.

So im guessing most Active Protection Systems have cool down periods between when they’ve eliminated a threat and can do it again?

Those with rotating launchers, like Trophy, and Iron Fist do. They can be defeated with salvos with near simultaneous impact. 

To defeat the Trophy or Iron Fist from the front or rear you need 3 missiles, or 2 to the sides where their coverage doesn't converge. They also need to be configured for each APS so there's not one anti-APS mode.

 

i.e vs Trophy the missiles need to be parallel.

vs Iron Fist they need to be in a line.

 

Static launcher systems have different weaknesses and these are usually their coverage zones. They can usually be defeated by top attack munitions diving at certain angles of attack.

 

i.e vs Afghanit it's just a guess but you need something along the lines of 30° or 40°. To ensure defeat against inclined targets, RAFAEL made the Spike LR 2 dive at 70°. They say it was designed this way to defeat APS. 

Attack profiles can be configured via software, so just like this demonstration with Kornets, western missiles like Javelin, Hellfire, MMP etc can be configured for an anti-APS mode.

 

Trickier systems like the ADS perhaps, may necessitate even closer to 90°. Although I don't really know of its configuration on available platforms.

   Each system is different. Hard to tell how well this mode of fire will work against real systems. Frontal missile after interception will create number of big parts that may result in inaccurate data for APS system to intercept second rocket. Chinese APS from Norinco for example fire 2 munitions during single interception procedure to combat such salvo type of ATGM attack.

"На сегодня подписан контракт на 132 машины Т-14 и Т-15. Первые девять машин мы получим уже в этом году, серийные машины. До конца 2021 года контракт будет выполнен", — сказал Криворучко журналистам на форуме "Армия-2018".

 

132 T-14 and T-15’s should be completed by 2021. The first 9 Seriel production vehicles should be recieved this year.

 

A friend of mine quoted this earlier. He said that Russia is focusing highly on upgrading prior service vehicles instead of the Armata Platform.

Yes, 132 ordred until end of 2021, number of T-14, T-15s and T-16s. 

 

Also, you missed my rant about decision to not buy Armata-based vehicles in any serious numbers.

      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!

      I want to show you several late Soviet MBT designs, which were created in 1980s in order to gain superiority over NATO focres. I do think that some of them are interesting, some of them look like a vehicle for Red Alert/Endwar games. 
           
           Today, Russia is still use Soviet MBTs, like T-80 and T-72s, but in late 1970s and 1980s Soviet military and engineers were trying to look for other tank concepts and designs. T-64 and other MBTs, based on concept behind T-64, were starting to reaching their limits, mostly because of their small size and internal layout. 
       
      PART 1
       
       
      Object 292
       
         We open our Box of Communism Spreading Godless Beasts with not so much crazy attempt to mate T-80 hull with 152 mm LP-83 gun (LP-83 does not mean Lenin Pride-83). It was called Object 292.
       
       
       
          First (and only, sadly) prototype was build in 1990, tested at Rzhevskiy proving ground (i live near it) in 1991, which it passed pretty well. Vehicle (well, turret) was developed by Leningrad Kirov factory design bureau (currently JSC "Spetstrans") Because of collapse of Soviet Union this project was abandoned. One of reasons was that main gun was "Burevestnik" design bureau creation, which collapsed shortly after USSR case to exist. It means that Gorbachyov killed this vehicle. Thanks, Gorbach!
       
          Currently this tank is localted in Kubinka, in running condition BTW. Main designer was Nikolay Popov.
       
          Object 292, as you see at photos, had a new turret. This turret could have been mounted on existing T-80 hulls without modifications to hull (Object 292 is just usual serial production T-80U with new turret, literally). New Mechanical autoloading mechanism was to be build for it. Turret had special Abrams-like bustle for ammunition, similar feature you can see on Ukrainian T-84-120 Yatagan MBT and, AFAIK, Oplot-BM.
          Engine was 1250 HP GTD-1250 T-80U engine. 152 mm main smoothbore gun was only a little bit bigger than 2A46 125 mm smoothbore gun, but it had much better overall perfomance.
          This prototype was clearly a transitory solution between so called "3" and "4th" generation tanks.
       
          Some nerd made a model of it:

      Hello,
      this is my first post. Please no bully. :3
       
      Panzerkampfwagen 2000
      In 1988 Germany developed a concept for a tank with two crew men. In order to test whether it's possible for only two crew men to operate a tank effectively, a Leopard 1 and a Leopard 2 were modified. 


      Field trials were held in 1990 and subsequently it was concluded to be a viable concept in 1992. The project was however canceled, because the downfall of the Soviet Union meant, that a new battle tank was no longer needed. Furthermore Israel stealing submarines and reunification meant that the budget was not sufficient either.
       
      Neue Gepanzerte Plattform
      In 1995 a concept for a whole family of armored vehicles(SPAAG, MBT, IFV) was developed, where the MBT would be manned by two man, just like the Panzerkampfwagen 2000. A prototype was build and tested in 1997. However a further budget cut lead to the cancellation in 1998. Wegmann desgin: Turret + autoloader:
      http://www.patent-de.com/pdf/DE19644524A1.pdf
      Diehl developed an APS for this tank: AWiSS


      EGS:
      Hull length = 8,67m
      Full width = 3,98m
      Width between the tracks = 3,5m
      Height = 2,71m
      The intended combat weight for the complete tank was between 55t and 77t.
      Can anyone calculate the the cross section areas and the protection levels for the front and the side, assuming mid-90s filler materials were used?
       
      Thanks for your attention!

      Yes
       
      i personally support it, by finding the KGB Felix Dzerzhinsky greatly improved state scurrility both inside the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and abroad (their jurisdiction was only domestic, but they kept the internationally influential people safe at night)   a dedicated defender of both the Revolution and all the Soviet peoples     what do you think of this news?
