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?)

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.

 

 

BMP-2 №46

So, what the serial numbers on the unditching logs?

 

This is very important information to me.
