In 2023, a truly modern tank based on Oplot will appear in Ukraine


In a few years, or rather in 2023, the Armed Forces of Ukraine can get at its disposal the first truly modern and completely import-substituted domestic tank, created on the basis of the T-84BM Oplot, writes the Ukrainian portal Defense Express.


We are talking about the Bastion program, which is being developed by the KMDB them. Morozov. At the same time, under the Crab program, a deep modernization of the T-64 tanks will be carried out.

Thus, Ukraine will try to implement two programs simultaneously. The military is not going to give up the T-64 yet, as their modernization is already overripe. As for the updated "Oplot", the military is looking forward to their appearance in marketable quantities in the next 25 years.

T-84BM "Oplot" was put into service in 2009. It was created on the basis of the Soviet MBT T-80UD. Consequently, it has a certain number of units and assemblies that are manufactured in Russia. And although there are not so many Russian components, they still need to be replaced with domestic ones. Moreover, in Kharkov they are going not only to carry out import substitution, but to seriously improve the element base.

Shooting of armor samples is scheduled for January 2021, the 1G46M sight is undergoing factory tests, in bench tests the 6TD-2 engine has already worked 250 hours out of 300 planned. In total, 25 Ukrainian enterprises will be involved in the cooperation.

However, the new "Oplot" will be expensive - at least 150 million hryvnia ($ 5,15 million) per unit. How much the budget will cost at least a battalion (50 units) of such tanks is easy to calculate on your own, summed up the publication from Ukraine.

    Again, as always, they will produce 5 - 10 updated tanks a year, this is where the whole Bastion program will end, because planning is one thing, but making all these plans a reality is quite another !!!

      At the same time, they will still try to sell it to Pakistan or Thailand.

        It is unlikely. In any case, Thailand has already gone through this and now the phrase "Ukrainian tank" causes a gag reflex there.
        I think that Pakistan has heard about it.

    And why don't they boast about which gun will stand?

    ... just as successfully migrated to the new BM "Oplot". As an example, the main weapon of the tank was still the 125-mm smoothbore Soviet tank gun 2A46, which was "mastered" (and actually produced without a license) at the Sumy NPO im. M.V. Frunze. However, even with a complete set of design documentation, it was not possible to completely copy the Soviet weapon in Ukraine. Received the loud name KBA-3, the Ukrainian "clone" of the gun had a barrel survivability of only about 200 shots, while the original 2A46 pulled out 600-800 shots, and by the beginning of the 2000s, already in the Russian Federation, modifications of these guns reached resource of 1200 rounds per barrel.

    This is a quote from

    The article ends with:

    Sleep in peace, unlucky war machine.

    What is Defense Express's astounding optimism based on?

    As for the updated Oplot, the military is eagerly awaiting their appearance in marketable quantities in the next 25 years.

    And who said that Ukraine will survive at least 5 years, not to mention 25?

      200 shots - turned out to be only calculated - in the end, 10 shots could not be fired

    At the School, on an introductory basis, we studied the 5TDF product at the "iron department", the teachers who were faced with the operation of the T-64 - "quietly, politely and imperceptibly" spat on this engine and said: the B-46 is better and more reliable - there is nothing ...

      hi Yes, a "suitcase", a high-speed turbo-piston 5TDF (and, in general, a Morozov T-64 tank), he is such a real "prince and a pea"! But also gratefully reciprocates self-love! wink
      He did not forgive and does not forgive careless, illiterate and careless operation - "for a fool" is not calculated (although the designers-linkers of the fuel and oil systems of the MTO BTT, using this engine, need to carefully consider the nuances of operation in the troops!)! yes
      He rigidly demands a pedantic and careful attitude (both "in the park" and "in the field"), in compliance with all procedures and regulations laid down for him! winked
      Two-stroke boxer 5TDF (and, especially, its further development of 6TD-2 and 6TD-3, and even this is by no means all the reserves for improving this design have yet been realized!) inline and V-shaped "four-strokes"! fellow
      But, alas, 5TDF-6TD fell into the wrong hands during the collapse of the USSR - "not for the horse feed", and we all remember "about the horns of a vigorous cow"! request

        In those glorious times, the bulk of the mech-vod, in the troops (not in the groups of troops) were "Uzbeks", even in the school in the BOUP there were Asians (on BMP) and Caucasians (on training tanks), with such a personnel to provide a long operation of 5TDF and engines, its further development is very problematic. And we were also told about the positive qualities of the engine, adding that the T-64 is a tank for parades on asphalt.

          hi In our division, too, in the majority, there were mechanics (and all the catering department servants, albeit under the command of a senior warrant officer-Ukrainian) from the Uzbek and Georgian "community", and 5TDF broke "be healthy", with all the "leaking" deductions ... , alas. request

          You, Comrade Owl, were misinformed about "parades"! smile
          Thanks to the flat and narrow (therefore easily pushing through the dirt and not collecting it on itself) metal rollers with internal shock absorption, hooked "openwork (and therefore well self-cleaning)" caterpillar with a parallel rubber-metal hinge, the T-64's permeability through European mud was much higher than that of his Ural "mobilization clone" with the B-46, with wide rubberized rollers and a heavy track with a consistent rubber-metal hinge - this has been repeatedly confirmed by comparative tests!
          Then, for the modernized T-72 ÷ T-90, they also used a parallel hinge track, which improved the "picture of the specific ground pressure" and the mud passability of these tanks! No wonder among our tankers the T-64 was nicknamed "the king of mud" (we, laughing, still they called it a "motor scooter" - for the characteristic sound of the engine, from a distance it looked like a motor scooter - "stool", especially at night in the field, without the headlights on, when driving with a "night light"), because it was "sharpened" (the design of a flooded MTO and the "Brod" system allowed, without preparation, to overcome a ford up to 1,8 meters deep and, with preparation, reservoirs up to 5 meters deep without restrictions on the distance due to engine overheating, and our tanks with V-55 ÷ V-46 engines have such a limitation there are 1000 meters) to overcome mud, zones of continuous destruction-fires and extensive flooding areas in West Germany (after the explosion of numerous river dams by American nuclear bombs previously installed in Germany and after our auxiliary tactical poison blows)! yes
          We, Soviet tank crews, were seriously prepared, "in case of something (aggression against the USSR and its allies under the Warsaw Pact)", "to rush to the English Channel" and on the way to the goal, in any conditions of the European theater of operations, destroy all "probable opponents" (who are now "partners"). am
          But at the "parade on asphalt" "sixty-fours" were only once - as I remember, in 1985 and no more (because they probably "did not seem to the management" - because they are not cumbersome enough and not impressive in sight - the public "look small and" undignified ", like a toy, and even quietly work - not at all" roaring motors "?!) ?! winked

            I know several tankers, one of them served as a tester. So the reviews are almost the same. What was done in Kharkov was the worst tanks and engines of the late USSR.

              hi Late USSR Kharkiv tanks are the "jet" T-80, an installation series, and then (when the "northern" and "southern" party-industrial groups came to a compromise) went in large series Improved Diesel T-80UD(there were complaints about their "innovative" Leningrad chassis, its hydraulics), as usual, the difficulty of mastering new products instead of the usual and well-tested "sixty-four", and the quality of the products sank with the introduction of Gorbachev's "state acceptance" and "perturbations" with factory personnel.
              But these are Kharkovites (there are even tank builders among the readers and commentators of the Site), if they want, they will tell you themselves.
              Whoever studied what, bear040, he praises! yes
              The T-64 did not forgive and does not forgive a careless and illiterate attitude towards itself, but if you treat it properly, know the design and follow the operating rules, then this tank gratefully reciprocates its crew!

                Engines T-64 and T-80UD start poorly, especially in cold weather. The T-72 is much easier. The T-64 suspension was made by a frankly not intelligent person and is not suitable for a tank at all. The automatic loader on the T-64 is a nightmare of a technician and a mechanic. Not only is the mechanic drive unable to open its hatch at a certain position of the gun, it cannot get out through the fighting compartment either. The automatic machine on the T-64 is hydraulics, not only is it not reliable, but also fire hazardous. With a sharp turn of the tank, the T-64 loses its tracks at a time (takes off shoes). The sides of the hull on the T-72 are additionally covered with large-diameter rollers, on the T-64 they are bare, since the side skirts often fall off in battle, the mountings there are weak

                  hi Set of "stamps", bear040! request
                  When you wrote to me about the 5TDF engine, supposedly worse than the B-46, which started up in the cold, and then, like a student, diligently "filed" the rest of the "duty claims", then your school age and level of knowledge of the subject became extremely clear and understandable to me , about which I "suspected" even from your first comment (and this pseudo "know-it-all" my comment to comrade Filin indiscriminately minus, "settling" on his alleged "acquaintance with tankers (igruns in Of Tanks ?! wink ) by testers (what and how ??? you, bear040, figure it out in detail at the beginning, before "referring" and writing, after all, not everything written in popular literature can be trusted!) "?! wassat )!
                  The "automatic loader" on the T-64 is GREATLY GREAT (why is it so stupid to "fire", bear 040 ???) !!!lol

                    How tired I am that the sofa experts of 40 year old officers are scolded by schoolchildren. Uncle if you served in the army, you would know the difference between serving in a tank company with the T-72 and with the T-64. By the way, in your Ukraine, the T-64 stalled in a puddle, the driver drowned, they could not get him out of the tank through the fighting compartment, and the driver's hatch was blocked by the tank's gun. Don't write to anyone else that the T-64 is supposedly a good tank, don't make anyone laugh. Two-stroke motors generally suck, by themselves, and especially in the Ukrainian version.

                      Oh, how, Stranger039, "right off the bat", he immediately began to "give instructions" (and, I'm interested, I will present this one of mine, about my "sofa expert", allegedly "swearing by schoolchildren", you, "tired of 40- summer officer "039, can you" justify ", no ?! negative ) ?! wassat
                      You guys are funny, "numbers" The Wanderer039 and the Bear040(or is it one and the same "kid",twice under different nicknames, but, again, stupidly you "burn" in numerical order, and how well do you know the rules of the Site that "do not welcome" such a multi-registration ?!)! wink

                      The level of intellectual development, it so happens that the "passport age" and lags behind, yes!
                      According to your general, purely schoolchildren, obviously without real knowledge of the subject ("one to one" written off from "near-tank" fiction) "lists", according to your "factual", unfounded "statements" and adolescent "quirks", the approximate age was determined, drugans, and, frankly, mature "40-year-old" men do not seem to be retardant development, or what ?! yes

                      So, my strange "numbered nephew", I don't need to throw your amateurish noodle on my ears, for your "named uncle" is still a real (still Soviet) tank officer (and even though it was a long time ago, but still "in the subject", even if I don't play computer "tanks" at all!)! yes

                        You can think about us everything that you dream about, your problems. We do not know the Owl even by correspondence, but not the essence. If the T-64 and other Ukrainian arts were worth something, foreigners would buy them. They buy tanks from the Russian Federation, all attempts by Ukraine to sell their weapons end in scandals and screams about defective goods from dissatisfied buyers. By the way, in the USSR, the T-64 also did not gain fame for itself and was not produced in significant quantities. In the war, the T-64 also showed themselves not from the best side.
