US media about the appearance of “Almaty” in Syria: Russians were very cautious


Russian authorities have announced the testing of the latest T-14 tanks in the Syrian Arab Republic. However, no specific data was provided, writes The Drive.


With the exception of a small number of BMPT Terminator, Russia had not previously sent heavy armored vehicles to Syria for its needs. Several T-90 tanks that guard the Khmeimim airbase and do not participate in hostilities do not count. Even if a certain amount of T-14 Armata was indeed aimed at the war, the Russian military was definitely very cautious and hardly involved a new one. machinery in real battles. No one needs combat losses.

It is well known that terrorist groups are actively using anti-tank systems. Yes, it can be stated that the T-14 has improved passive armor, and also has a modern active defense system that is designed to combat ATGMs. It's true. The special design of the tank also made the crew less vulnerable by placing soldiers in an armored capsule and making the tower uninhabited. Nevertheless, there is a possibility that, under a certain set of circumstances, the tank may be destroyed, which will become an extremely undesirable event for the Kremlin.

Sending the T-14 to Syria, even for a short time, can still be useful for Russia's "propaganda goals," writes The Drive. This fact will demonstrate the country's continued commitment to an advanced tank project, despite the existing problems. But they are. In 2015, authorities announced that by 2020 there will be at least 100 T-14 tanks in the army. That did not happen.

    This really is not the case. yes It is also true that dozens of Zumwaltes plowing the vast oceans are not observed. request If I’m not mistaken, we planned to build 30 pieces. Plans do not always coincide with reality. But something tells me, “Armata” is closer to reality and plans will be realized, albeit with a delay.
    It is better for the Americans themselves to take care of the health of African-Americans; for “Abrams' bio-automatic loading machines, for social reasons, they are much more likely to be affected by coronavirus.

      Yeah, the super-duper Su-57 fighters have plowed the expanses of the Bolshoi Theater with entire squadrons. wink As for the widely advertised Armata tank, it is 30 years old morally without having time to go into production. negative

        You can’t imagine how dear to me the opinion of such a major military expert as you is. laughing As he does his fighter, then you will be clever. yes Some countries that are the same age as the Bolshoi Theater are capable of producing such equipment, but do not. F-22 has long been discontinued, but it was designed for a long time, it will not work to resume production. It’s hard to call the F-35 a fighter, a subsonic slow-moving vehicle, stalking in fear that the “big boys” will find it, the only hope to be the first to shoot first, stealthily. Here he is being pulled in by nearby allies. Even purchases for the Marine Corps are almost halving, one hope for you. Buy for health. yes

        As for the widely advertised Armata tank, it is 30 years old morally without having time to go into production.

        Really? belay And what now, the last word in tank building? Abrams with firemanExcuse me, charging in the carriage?

            There was no comparison of the destroyer with tanks, there was a comparison of promises of what would be done (no matter what) then ... And in both cases they were not fulfilled. It is a pity that the promise is not responsible for their words.

            Both that and another - products of the military industry, comparison of production plans, really made samples and terms of program implementation are quite correct. A good example is that the voiced plans and the actual production are two big differences.

        But the Germans are not as optimistic as you are, and are trying hard to create a tank (Leopard III), not inferior to Armata. But the Germans know a lot about tanks.

        Only around the world they don’t think so, and as it became known about the appearance of the T-14 Armat, the same French and Germans teamed up to create a new generation tank as opposed to the T-14. So, there is no need to carry frank nonsense.

        T-14 platform, that is, according to the old terminology of the USSR, the research "Object", on the basis of which, at the end of the research, a serial line of various armored vehicles will be launched. Who is there and what is promised to whom is left to the conscience of the newspapermen. Su-57 launched in a series, deliveries have already begun. But of course, for especially gifted, moronic little brothers, this is all not true.

    Americans generally only Abrams modernize and prepare for war with Russia. And what follows from this? Armata, like the SU-57, has one problem - the engine. And this is not solved in two months. Let's wait ...

      You see, stupid, you confuse two very distant professions - a bindyuzhnik with a goldsmith, you don’t even understand such simple issues, but try to judge modern tank building. lol
      As for the new ideas that your opponents are actively embodying, perhaps the most backward Negro in Africa has never heard of them - these are light autonomous robotic complexes equipped with new types of weapons. Do you think why the Americans are not developing new tanks, have their loot abruptly ended, or are all specialists retrained in a gigolo? Tanks, young man - yesterday and the time of large-scale tank battles went down in history. They will still be used to solve individual problems, but they have lost their previous meaning.

    - So it shouldn’t be either ... - there have been similar military air "fights" for more than a dozen years ... - and not a single F-16 shot down in air battles ... "In a flash" and "Sushki" ...
    - Maybe someone will bring the facts ...
