As I said, IMO its a good idea, only not exactly tested and still risky with higher velocity compounded rounds or biggr calibre (cue 140mm guns and Russian 152mm answer). With that in mind the system is a bit of oldschool ERA pushed at its maximum.

    What about scaling up the EFPs? Make em bigger, chunkier. That could compensate bigger calibers.

    Weight, and burden. Duplet armour, which is a multi layer would simply get unpractical for the current tanks (legacy Soviet designs).

    Ukrainian company "Aerotekhnika-MLT" in Africa

    Ukrainian Web resource is interesting uinp.info published an article by Olga Filatova "Aerotekhnika" enriched in the plundering of budgetary funds "UkSATSE" devoted to criticism of the activities of the Ukrainian company OOO «NPP" Aerotekhnika-MLT, "Strive to the field of modernization of air defense missile systems and radar systems of Soviet-made and has noted the delivery of S-125, according to an embodiment of upgraded S-125-2D "Pechora-2A" ( "Pecheneg") in Uganda (and in fact in South Sudan), as well as upgraded radar - in Angola and Zambia, and now engaged in Angola and Egypt modernization project SAMs and radars.

    As can be seen from the publication, in the activities of "Aerotechnica-MLT" is widely used by different firms-pads and "scheme", and indeed "Aerotekhnika-MLT" acts more as a kind of mediatory structures, rather than integrator and manufacturer. Although Article O. Filatova is fairly obvious, is frankly "kosushny" nature and suffers from numerous exaggerations, it nevertheless provides another indication of customs and practices prevailing in the sphere of military-technical cooperation of Ukraine.

    OOOOPs

    Indonesia is reconsidering plans to acquire more Ukraine-built BTR-4 8x8 amphibious armored personnel carriers (APC) after issues cropped up during training activities.

    After concluding initial training on the amphibious vehicle, Korps Marinir (KORMAR), the Indonesian Marine Corps, reported several problems, including the APC excessively trimming at the bow while immersed in water and operating at full speed.

    Five of the vehicles were delivered to Jakarta in September as part of a deal with Ukraine state-owned defense manufacturer Ukroboronprom, as Indonesia sought to replace the 100 BTR-50PK APCs it acquired from Kiev in the 1990s.

    One Ukroboronprom official told Janes in November, "After official acceptance we will talk about expanding technology transfers to Indonesia and about expanding the order…We know [KORMAR] has a requirement for another 50 vehicles. This could mean some of these vehicles are built in Ukraine followed by technology transfers and local production in Indonesia."

    The vehicle’s main weapon is a ZTM-1 30 mm cannon. It also features an AGS-17 30mm grenade launcher and a chemical, nuclear and biological filtration system.

    WARSAW, Poland — Ukraine is negotiating the sale of 100 T-84 Oplot main battle tanks to Pakistan, and plans to use the funds to modernize the production capacities of its state-owned defense industry and invest in research and development, according to daily Gazeta Wyborcza.

    The potential deal, which is to be handed to Ukraine defense group Ukroboronprom, would mark another export contract for the supply of the tanks following a deal signed in 2011 with Thailand. Bangkok is to obtain a total of 49 Oplots.

    In the 1990s, the Ukrainian defense industry supplied 320 T-84UD tanks to Pakistan’s military under a deal worth some $600 million.

    In addition to export sales, Ukroboronprom is also producing Oplots for the country’s armed forces. Last month, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko announced that more than 300 million hryvnia (U.S. $12 million) will be allocated to acquire an undisclosed number of tanks for the Ukrainian land forces.

    A “lion’s share of the money” will be allocated to purchase Oplots “so that our soldiers can effectively fight,” Poroshenko said in a statement by Ukroboronprom. The Ukrainian military is combating Russia-backed insurgents in the country’s east. In March 2014, Moscow annexed Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula.

    The Oplot has a weight of some 51 ton. The tank can carry a crew of three, and it is enabled with a maximum speed of 70 kph, according to data from Ukroboronprom. The Oplot is produced by the group’s subsidiary Malyshev at its plant in Kharkiv.

    Well, well, well

    Intro from ZH

    When the US State Department supported Ukraine domestic forces and nationalist elements to stage a successful and deadly coup against then pro-Russian president Viktor Yanukovych in 2014, the outcome was supposed to be a nation that is a undisputed US ally and persistent threat, distraction and non-NATO opponent to bordering Russia. Instead, it now appears that it has been Ukraine which was, as the NYT writes, the secret behind the success of North Korea's ballistic missile program. Specifically, in a blockbuster report this morning, the NYT alleges that North Korea has been making black-market purchases of powerful rocket engines from a Ukrainian factory citing "expert analysis being published Monday and classified assessments by American intelligence agencies."

    Then intro from NYT

    By WILLIAM J. BROAD and DAVID E. SANGER
    August 14, 2017

    North Korea’s success in testing an intercontinental ballistic missile that appears able to reach the United States was made possible by black-market purchases of powerful rocket engines probably from a Ukrainian factory with historical ties to Russia’s missile program, according to an expert analysis being published Monday and classified assessments by American intelligence agencies.

    The studies may solve the mystery of how North Korea began succeeding so suddenly after a string of fiery missile failures, some of which may have been caused by American sabotage of its supply chains and cyberattacks on its launches. After those failures, the North changed designs and suppliers in the past two years, according to a new study by Michael Elleman, a missile expert at the International Institute for Strategic Studies.

    Such a degree of aid to North Korea from afar would be notable because President Trump has singled out only China as the North’s main source of economic and technological support. He has never blamed Ukraine or Russia, though his secretary of state, Rex W. Tillerson, made an oblique reference to both China and Russia as the nation’s “principal economic enablers” after the North’s most recent ICBM launch last month.

    Analysts who studied photographs of the North’s leader, Kim Jong-un, inspecting the new rocket motors concluded that they derive from designs that once powered the Soviet Union’s missile fleet. The engines were so powerful that a single missile could hurl 10 thermonuclear warheads between continents.

    Ukraine’s defence export agency UkroBoronProm has unveiled a new upgraded variant of the T-72 main battle tank (MBT) known as the T-72AMT. Developed as a private venture by the Kiev Armoured Plant, the new design incorporates a number of lethality, survivability and systems enhancements. Testing of this upgraded version is due to begin by the end of August.

    The T-72AMT has been adapted to fire the 125 mm Kombat (Combat) gun-fired laser-guided missile, which is capable of penetrating 550 mm of armour itself protected by explosive reactive armour (ERA). Equipped with a tandem warhead, the missile is also operable with Ukraine’s BM Oplot and T-84 MBTs and is guided by the gunner using semi-automatic command to line-of-sight guidance. The sighting and guidance unit for this is mounted on the top of the turret, to the left side of the main gun sight.

    Slat armour is mounted around the rear of the turret, as well as on the rear portion of the vehicle, providing additional protection for the engine, transmission and other components against shaped-charge weapons such as rocket-propelled grenades. Nozh (Knife) ERA is mounted over the front of the tank using linear-shaped charges to degrade the impact of incoming shaped-charge anti-tank projectiles.

    Japan and Ukraine are moving closer to forming a partnership to develop military technologies, Jane’s has learnt. The move will most likely face political barriers in Tokyo but is currently being considered by both countries as a means of advancing industrial capability.

    The potential for a bilateral programme was outlined in talks held in Kiev in early August between Ukraine’s first deputy minister of defence Ivan Rusnak and Ro Manabe, Japan’s vice minister of defence for international affairs.

    A spokesperson for the Japanese Ministry of Defense’s (MoD’s) Acquisition, Technology and Logistics Agency (ATLA) confirmed to Jane’s on 10 August that Japanese and Ukrainian defence officials are currently contemplating potential engagement.

    Bit more on the rocket motors to NK. Full article at http://www.fort-russ.com/2017/08/scandal-ukrainian-trace-of-north-korean.html

    On August 16th, the scandal surrounding the DPRK’s possession of Ukrainian rocket engines received new impetus with two iconic pieces of news. The first: American intelligence officers stated that the DPRK might have independently produced such missiles engines without importing products. This statement is contrary to common sense and contradicts the realistic technological capabilities of North Korea. That North Korean military engineers accomplished a technological breakthrough in two to three years which took the Soviet Union whole decades with more powerful scientific and financial resources, is questionable. Logic dictates that the North Korean regime opted for the more simple and less expensive option - buying ready-made engines and thereby saving money and, most importantly, precious time.

    The US has been compelled to cover up this scandal. If they recognize the Ukrainian origins of North Korea’s rocket engines, then they would have to admit that their support for the illegal Euromaidan government in Ukraine has been a strategic mistake. Of course, it could also be assumed that those who have spoken out simply want to scare American society with the boogey man of military and scientific progress in North Korea.

    The other news is that the head of the Ukrainian enterprise Yuzhmash, Sergei Voyt, admitted to the Russian pranker Aleskey Stolyarov (“Lexus”), who was pretending on a prank call with the former to be Turchynov, that the DPRK’s missile engines really possibly could have come from Ukraine. During the telephone conversation, Lexus asked Voyt to openly answer whether Ukrainian rocket engines could have ended up on the territory of North Korea, to which Voyt replied that Yuzhmash could not be the source of the engines or technology, but that another enterprise cooperates with the DPRK - the Yuzhnoye Design Office. What exactly the staff do there, Voyt admitted to not know, but said that Ukraine’s SBU and SVR (foreign intelligence) would be aware.

    ....................................

    Another detail of no small importance is that Dnepropetrovsk is the center of Ukrainian Jewry and the fiefdom of one of the most powerful clans, namely that which has produced Kuchma, Lazarenko (former president and prime minister), Tymoshenko, the oligarchs Pinchuk and Kolomoysky (the head of the Ukrainian Jewish Congress), and Yarosh (the leader of Right Sector). The Dnepropetrovsk clan is distinguished by an extreme lack of ideological purpose and downright cynicism. For example, Kolomoysky has financed Right Sector gangs with ease despite their extreme anti-Semitism.

    How about this then, my highlight. It looks like Ukraine's ammo manufacturing is so good that the US is to to buy WP type ammo in Ukraine, not say Poland. But notice this is a Ltd company, based in the Seychelles with offices in Chicago so all may not be as it seems!

    The U.S. Army awarded contracts valued at up to $500 million to four companies that will provide non-standard ammunition and mortar systems in support of U.S. military and allied collation partners on Aug. 4.

    The U.S. Army Contracting Command-New Jersey awarded the five-year firm fixed price indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contracts to Chemring Military Products, Global Ordnance, Alliant Techsystems Operations LLC and Ukrainian Defense Consulting Ltd. USA on behalf of Product Director Non Standard Ammunition (NSA). PD NSA is part of the Program Executive Officer Ammunition.

    Two New Contracts by ROKETSAN and ASELSAN

    Turkish companies ASELSAN and ROKETSAN signed two new agreements in Ukraine. ASELSAN signed a sales contract for the supply of  "Zaslon-L" Active Protection Systems with SFTE Spets Techno Export, while ROKETSAN signed a cooperation agreement with the same company for the joint development of explosive reactive armor (ERA).

    The reactive armor system jointly developed by Turkey and Ukraine under the framework agreement signed by ROKETSAN Chairman M. Emin Alpman and Deputy Director Vladyslav Belbas on behalf of SFTE Spets will be used on Turkey's tanks to provide protection against the anti-tank missiles.

    Ripped from VT, not sure of origin

    by Sophie Mangal

    The Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) together with the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network revealed a scheme of weapons supply to the terrorists of ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra.

    There is no secret that the U.S. provides the so-called moderate opposition and Kurdish militia in Syria with arms and ammunition most of which are the weapons remained after the Soviet-led Warsaw Pact disbanded.

    The U.S. DOD, through U.S. SOCOM, MacDill Air Force Base, Florida, as well as Picatinny Arsenal, American military research, and manufacturing facility located in Dover, New Jersey, acquired arms in some Eastern European countries including Ukraine for their further sending to Syria. The procurement volume has already exceeded $700 billion.

    Kiev used the logistical scheme elaborated by Washington to export arms and weapons from the Ukrainian armed forces weapons depots. The deal is estimated at $110 billion.

    Only between June 5 and September 15, the United States sent 1,421 trucks loaded with weaponry to the “moderate” opposition, including 596 trucks (more than 40 %) from Ukraine. Most of them ended up in ISIS’ hands.

    The General Staff of Ukraine took advantage of Oktyabrsk seaport located 25 kilometers southeast to Mykolaiv and Kiev air transport hub to supply weapons to the Middle East.

    The transportation of weapons by air was the most effective in terms of delivery speed. The weapons were transferred from ammunition depot No. 48 of Central Missile and Artillery Directorate situated in the Ukrainian town of Vinnytsia to Gavrishovka Airport and then delivered by 456 brigade jets to Boryspil International Airport.

    Earlier, the Ukrainian authorities might have delivered arms and weapons through ammunition depot No. 65 located in Kharkiv’s Balakliya.

    To cover up the illegal supplies, a series of deliberate arsons were organized at the military depots. The incident in Vinnytsia provoked the public outcry. According to the Ukrainian media, more than 40 tons of artillery shells were allegedly destroyed. In fact, this represents a basis of weapons sold and delivered to ISIS.

    The similar cases won’t stop as Kiev needs to hide grand larceny and illegal arms sales from the public eye.
