   Ow, hey, apparently Uran-9 is equipped with laser dazzler.

   The actions of robotic systems were provided by the tactical laser complex "Career", the capabilities of which make it possible to detect and suppress optical reconnaissance and observation equipment of tanks, other armored equipment and small arms of the enemy. 

   Maybe small box above main optics assembly is emmiter of laser for this system? Not sure. It is small, so maybe it is just a rangefinder.

   Although maybe this is a device that was mentioned (box above ATGMs)

It looks similar in shape and size to the loader's hatch, but the handle and center cross piece are foreign, and there is no attachments for the hinge.

I checked the turret hatches on the M variant and they are not the same shape is this plate. 

Some people suggested that this is the belly escape hatch, but I don't think so.

   Russian unmanned robotic platforms "Marker" have passed field tests at the firing line without human control. Fighting robots with artificial intelligence acted independently in an autonomous group, went to firing positions and distributed targets.

 

   According to RIA Novosti, five Marker robots took part in the testing. Of these, three vehicles were on a wheeled chassis and two on a tracked chassis. With the help of observation equipment and technical vision, the drones conducted reconnaissance of the area and assess the situation.

 

   "The robots, without human intervention, solved the tasks of distributing targets in the group, reaching optimal firing positions, independently responding to operational changes in the combat situation, exchanging target designations," the news agency reports, citing a source in the military-industrial complex.

 

   In the future, autonomous groups of Marker robots are planned to be tested in conjunction with aerial drones.

   Would be interesting to new how elaborate tests were, how exactly they detected and recognised targets, how they were able to search for cover (was they pre-placed markers in their nav data) and so on. But still, UGVs working in group autonomously is a progress, especially compared to Uran-9.

 

   Marker UGVs, tracked and wheeled versions:

   Number 004, i guess there are just 5-6 of those UGVs made so far, for testing.

What is the purpose of the rubber protruding over the upper plate on the Kontakt 5 ERA turret array?

Also why does the installation on the T-80U(D) use it and on the T-72B3 there isn't any?

   I saw 2 explanations. First is reduction of RCS, making tank a little harder to spot for radar systems from long ranges. Second is much less common - such configuration of rubber flaps covers lower section of the turret, which would have noticeable unnatural looking stright line shadow, which would make tank easier to spot.

Ha, I've always thought that it provided a point for early shaped charge detonation, before it even reaches ERA.

Thank you!

Did the t72 Rogatka upgrade get a new autoloader which could use amo such as bm60/59?

Yes.

Can use APFSDS with increased power with a core made of ultra-dense one-component and composite materials, increasing armor penetration by 30%

 

 

Может использовать БПС повышенного могущества с сердечником из сверхплотных однокомпонентных и композиционных материалов, увеличивающих бронепробиваемость на 30%
