Laureate of the State Prize of Ukraine: The Russian army has a total advantage in armored vehicles over the Armed Forces of Ukraine

The Russian army has a total advantage in armored vehicles over the Armed Forces of Ukraine. This opinion is shared by a number of well-known Ukrainian specialists, excerpts from the letter were published by Defense Express.

Laureate of the State Prize of Ukraine in the field of science and equipment Mikhail Budyonny, who worked for over 20 years as a chief engineer at the "Plant im. Malysheva "and Andrey Bogach, who has been creating promising models of armored vehicles at the" Kharkov Machine-Building Design Bureau "for more than 20 years, believe that it is necessary to solve the above problem as soon as possible and achieve parity with Russia.

Currently, the number of modern Russian tanks, namely: T-72B, T-90, T-64B, T-80BV, T-80U, T-80UD and their modifications, is about 12,5 thousand units.

In turn, the number of APU tanks, namely T-64B, BM "Bulat", T-72B - about 700 units, and more modern T-84, BM "Oplot", T-80BV, T-80UD - up to 45 units ...

Experts have provided calculations of winning in duel battles between tanks. They range from 0,42 to 0,61. Thus, the intended use by Moscow of up to 950 tanks will have disastrous consequences for Kiev.

The situation looks similar, both qualitatively and quantitatively, and in lightly armored vehicles. The superiority of the Russian BTR-90, BTR-82A, BMP-3, BMD-4 in comparison with the Ukrainian BTR-3, BTR-4, BMP-1M, BMP-2 is 7,5: 1. The use of the RF Armed Forces for its intended purpose is about 800 units will be enough to deprive the APU of such equipment.

Experts have proposed various solutions to the problem. So, for the period until 2023, they propose to start developing a universal combat module no worse than that of the BMP-3, so that the probability of winning in a duel match reaches 0,55. After that, the specified combat module will need to be launched into mass production (at least 50 units per year) and adapted for the chassis of all existing types of armored vehicles.

For the period until 2027, it was proposed to create a light and heavy infantry fighting vehicle. Carrying out R&D work to create a number of special purpose diesel engines and transmissions for them with a power range of 300-600 hp. Development of an automated control system by troops of the "company-battalion" level. Creation of a self-propelled gun of the "Bogdana" type on a tracked chassis with an ACS with artillery fire and a number of other proposals.

For the period up to 2030, introduce an automated control system for a battalion-brigade. Establish the production of these units and robotic systems. Develop a new MBT.

The authors of the letter are confident that only these measures will allow the Armed Forces to fulfill the tasks of protecting the country.

    They tell you from the American Embassy through the American Twitter what to do, and whose country to defend in detail has long been described, but you do not answer the main question - why do you need all this?

    Is it only in armored vehicles that the Russian army has an advantage over the Armed Forces of Ukraine, in all other branches of the armed forces and types of weapons there is an even greater advantage, even the Aerospace Forces, even missile weapons, and the Russian and Ukrainian navies are not subject to any comparison, because even if suddenly something happens a military conflict with Ukraine, then they will receive more than just tanks on their hat !!!

    This is how it happens, brain shaken lol Well, this is when you ride for a long time with a saucepan on your head. Well, what is there so much speculation about? When the miners with shovels mounted the Ukrainian "super" army, they took away their weapons (which they had thrown in large quantities) and drove them away. They were saved by the fact that Merkel and Oland rode to Moscow in a hurry and tearfully asked Putin to stop the offensive. Why talk about weapons for so long. all the same, in case of war, the guys from Donbass will have it all. lol

      The only difference is that now no one will stop the guys from Donbass under any circumstances, they will only help them get to Kiev as soon as possible and displace this sickly pro-Western elite !!!

      Not Merkel, but Stanmeier.
      I didn't ask, but ordered. And Vova was immediately blown away ...
      And the miners, you see, have rusty shovels - which year they cannot reach Kiev. They promised in two days ... feel
