Belarusians showed a tank with a new protection against the "Javelin"


A photo of a modification of the T-72 tank, modified to take into account the weapons of a potential enemy, appeared on the Web. The idea of ​​body kit for tanks and other armored equipment metal bars is not new. Thus, the combat vehicles of the Syrian army were finalized. Despite the simplicity of the design, such protection turned out to be very effective for the crew from being hit by cumulative projectiles.


The projectile, falling into such a lattice, is deformed, due to which the main charge hits the target without causing significant harm to the machine. The use of such a body kit turned out to be especially effective in urban battles, where hand-held anti-tank grenade launchers are the main tool for fighting tanks. The Ukrainian military also often installs such body kits on light armored vehicles, which proves the effectiveness of the gratings against RPG projectiles.

However, such grilles do not work against Javelins, since a projectile from an American anti-tank missile system flies on the thermal radiation of the tank and hits the target from above. The power of the preliminary charge is enough to destroy the lattice, after which the cumulative charge that burns through the armor comes into play. To divert the Javelina missile from the tank hull, the Belarusian military decided to supplement it with a powerful source of thermal radiation in the form of a stove suspended on a 5-meter metal extension from the T-72 hull.

Whether such a decision will be justified remains to be seen.

    Exactly, this "collective farm" is a rather conditional protection against modern anti-tank weapons.

    It looks like a joke. How will he turn around with such a tail?

    So it seems that the javelin is aimed at a specific thermal signature of the tank, and not at abstract IR radiation

    Javelins have been used for a long time, so there are no decisions against them, the military-industrial complex of the Russian Federation was not created in half a year, it’s still criminal negligence, amateur performance is still visible here. Who should be taken for a soft spot and said to be created in three months, otherwise you will go into battle on the first tank - according to the method of I.V. Stalin. So the victorious leaders are not visible, while the leaders are promises.

    Lord! Yes, these "stoves" have long been used in the DPR, but only astern!

      Look carefully. Here, this pipe with a bucket is also tied to the stern.

        Already looked! Yes ... at the beginning he showed inattention! I suppose that better samples were created in the DPR! For example, on one of the samples, a turret was attached to the turret ... mmm ... "stern" whether, "tail" or ... Very similar to prototypes with a turret AZ! Such a tower "tail" hangs over the MTO, protecting it .... a pipe with a "stove" is attached to the "tail" ... things of the crew members are placed in the "tail" ...

    The new Belarusian tank Batka, scalded like cages for rabbits with fittings and lined with potatoes, is reliable protection even from Tomahawks!

    Well done Belarusians! Cheap and cheerful. Such stoves really save from the vaunted Javelins. Here, some smart people write that the Javelins allegedly react to the signature of the tank, so such fires will not help. In fact, the Javelin's heat head reacts to the exhaust of the tank's engine and calculates where the turret is located from the location of this exhaust, so if you change the exhaust point, then the American weapons will most likely miss. In this case, the explosion of ammunition will occur between the stove and the stern of the tank. This is about the fact that such a conflict makes it possible to effectively use outdated equipment and reliably protect the crew as a result of relatively low costs. And the new equipment must be kept for a more serious enemy. For everything goes to the fact that we will have it and it will probably not be very long to wait.

      The bait spills. If the javelin hits from above at 45 degrees, focusing on the thermal signature of the exhaust, then it turns out that the cumulative jet hits already backwards, after flying over the roof. Something hard to believe. Most likely, the entire body, which is warmer than the environment, is taken into account. Otherwise, the javelin would only be effective when fired from the rear. Accordingly, a "tail" with a hot end is also effective only against blows from behind.

    It would be funny if it weren't sad. What has the military-industrial complex come to if it invents such a "collective farm"! Hmmm, modern methods of warfare, you can’t say anything.

    if a DZ is installed on the upper grate, then there will probably be a protection effect, I think tests were carried out on this score, quite a few captured Javelins fell into the hands of LDNR miners. and the stove on the chimney will probably work like heat traps on turntables. Of course, you need to install KAZ Arena. Afghan, but the capitalists of bureaucrats have one answer: "there is no money, you hang on there"

    I'm sorry. The form factor from the word is absolutely not important when the safety of the crew is behind it.
    how the appearance of the phone and other things changes drones get used to effective tuning, I would generally add taper on top

    You can immediately see the specialist.

    Improving and complicating, engineers forget about the simple law of physics - nature is infinitely complex, but she loves simplicity. The fittest organism should be simple. And perfection must be graceful. So we are waiting for smooth contours of fittings, a feng shui stove with simultaneous heating of the bulb, and folding heat traps from the same baked bulb)

    For those more than twenty years that the Yankees have been in service with the Javelin ATGM for a long time, it was possible to develop a KAZ protecting armored vehicles from it for a long time. And not collective farms all sorts of visors and "stoves".
    What have our specialized design bureaus and research institutes been doing all this time?

      Who are you referring to? There are only effective managers and honored grandfathers. The first budgets are sawed, the second - they wipe their pants and make up waste paper in the form of reports on the work done in the intervals between solving crossword puzzles.

    We definitely won’t be allowed to hang this - tanks and other armored vehicles with such a body kit will look awkward in parades.
