T-14 received effective protection from American Javelins

Modern tanks and other armored vehicles are simply impossible to imagine without active protection systems. For example, on the newest Russian main battle tank T-14 "Armata" with an uninhabited turret, the domestic KAZ "Afghanit" is installed, writes "Military Review".

It should be noted that this KAZ is also installed in full on the BMP T-15 and in a partial version on the BMP of the Kurganets-25 family. The foundation of "Afganit" is a radio-optical radar, consisting of four AFAR-panels of a pulsed-Doppler radar and ultraviolet direction finders integrated with it. Due to its qualities, the KAZ can be used not only for defense, but also for reconnaissance of ground and air targets, as well as during their own attacks.

"Afghanit" includes a large number of different sensors and is integrated into the fire control system. This allows not only repelling the attack, but also quickly deploying the tower to the incoming ammunition, calculating the location of the enemy along the trajectory of its flight and making a shot at it. The complex has serious resistance to electronic warfare and can operate in a passive mode. KAZ controls a robotic machine-gun installation, the fire of which destroys incoming enemy ammunition.

KAZ is resistant to temperature extremes, water, dirt and dust, ensuring signal stability. This is a multifunctional complex capable of solving a large number of tasks and its work is difficult to paralyze. One of its tasks is to protect against secondary fragments that are formed after the destruction of an incoming enemy ammunition. Previously, such fragments caused great harm, damaging optical instruments, antennas and other attachments.

Thus, the T-14 Armata tank and other samples of Russian armored vehicles acquired effective protection against any existing anti-tank systems, including the American Javelins. At the same time, the assertions of the Americans that the KAZ "Afghanit" does not provide protection in case of an attack by an anti-tank guided missile from above and at a short distance can only be considered an attempt at unfair competition. Probable "partners" point-blank do not take into account the presence of reactive armor, which complements the active one.

    I read it in different places.
    Everywhere there is talk of theoretical super protection. But not a word about real tests.

      Were you supposed to be provided with a full version of the state test report?

        Such calculations were previously tried not to advertise. Why such details, leakage of secrets or perhaps a sale advertisement. Now you can't figure out what is the secret and who is the spy, everything is for sale, and the Motherland, wholesale and retail .........

          Previously, they wrote about the tests carried out, at least with Russian counterparts, or real models of foreign ones, for some reason they did not hesitate.
          There is not a word, not a hint here.
          Not for nothing.

            What nonsense? When did our military advertise the real capabilities of their technology? We have always acted according to the principle "Let the enemy be surprised." This has recently relaxed - advertising and all that. So don't talk nonsense.

            From you - one bedlam,
            Shame on the king, embarrassment to the ambassadors!
            I have been antirezing for a long time
            Are you not sent to us? ..

              So Safronov relaxed so that a case of treason was opened ...

            Are there Russian analogues? How to test?

    ..effective defense against American Javelins

    It is the Javelin who will decide whether the defense is effective or not.
  3. The 152 mm gun must be placed! And use nuclear shells! Then everything will be kamilfotno!

    And why is it to describe in such detail the device of our military weapons systems, for a simple man in the street who does not understand anything about these issues, this is superfluous and meaningless information, but for the analytical departments of the intelligence services of our opponents, this may well be of great interest to itself, maybe It's time to put things in order in our media and introduce total strict control over publications that may well carry classified information that is a state secret !!!
