    Even at sight you know it's a Kh-35 missile. So a local produced Kh-35 cruise missiles. Funny cause I don't see Ukraine as an operator of Kh-35 but there is local production of Kh-35 in North Korea and Vietnam, which leads me to believe they may have got one from NK.

    "Malyshev Plant" finally repaired six remaining T-84 tanks in Ukraine

    According to the website "Ukrainian Minority Portal", at the beginning of March 2018 the Kharkov state enterprise "Malyshev Plant" and the Kharkov Morozov Machine Building Design Bureau (KMDB) transferred after the capital repairs to the Ukrainian armed forces the remaining members of the Ukraine T-84 tanks, which were reportedly transferred to the 14th separate mechanized brigade of the Ukrainian army (dislocation in Volodymyr-Volyn Volyn region).



    The Ukrainian resource informs that "last year it became known that it was on these tanks that they would participate in the international competitions Strong Europe Tank Challenge 2018. Therefore, now, at one of the combined-arms testing ranges, the tankers of the 14th mechanized brigade, who, according to the results of last year's competitions, were recognized as the best in the Armed Forces of Ukraine, are preparing for international competitions to be held in May "


    On the bmpd side, we recall that the T-84 tank ("Object 478DU", the code "Kern") is a modified version of the sulfur produced at Kharkiv State Enterprise "Malyshev Plant" by the time of the Soviet collapse of the T-80UD tank. The first prototype T-84 ("Object 478DU") of the development of the KMDB was presented in 1993, a total of at least seven different prototypes were built by 1999 on this subject. The tank T-84 (in the execution of the "Object 478DU9") was officially adopted by the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine in 2000. In 2001, at the "Malyshev Plant" for the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine were built 10 serial tanks T-84 "Oplot" (in the performance of "Object 478DU9"). In 2003, four of the six T-84 tanks built were sold under the T-80UD index for study in the United States.

    The remaining six tanks by 2014 were in reserve at Bashirovka near Kharkov, from where they were delivered in 2015 for capital repair at the Malyshev Plant. In June 2016, the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine signed a contract with the Malyshev Plant to restore and partially modernize these six tanks. Under the terms of the contract, the tanks after the repair had to be delivered by the end of 2016, but in fact they were transferred to the customer only in March 2018. As you can understand, now these tanks will be used in "pokazushnye" and advertising purposes.

    "Ukraine has taken delivery of an unspecified number of BMP-1AK infantry fighting vehicles from Polish company Wtorplast", the analysts of the think-tank say. The BMP-1AK variant of the renowned BMP-1 was not known before; however, the IFV is suggested to be a slightly upgraded variant of the baseline model with an updated internal layout and additional anti-cumulative protection.

    The IFVs are supposed to be fitted with improved night vision systems and Ukrainian-originated tactical radios. "The new BMP-1AK provided to Ukraine is claimed to have improved protection against cumulative and HEAT projectiles, such as those fired by the RPG-7 [rocket-propelled grenade launcher]," the experts of the think-tank point out.

    According to Ukrainian media outlets, Poland is to deliver a total of 200 BMP-1AK to Ukraine's Ministry of Defense. The first batch (approximately 30 vehicles) is reported to have already been delivered. The vehicles were supplied to Poland by Czech Republic's Excalibur Group company (a subsidiary of the Czechoslovak Group consortium). Then, Wtorplast disassembled the IFVs and delivered them to the Zhitomir Armor Plant (a subsidiary of the Ukroboronprom Group).

    According to Russian analysts, the abovementioned acquisition apparently reveals a deep depletion of the Ukrainian armor stocks. The Military Balance 2018 analytical book issued by the London-based International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) says the Ukrainian military operates a ‘large’ infantry armor fleet, which includes 193 BMP-1s, 890 BMP-2s, and four Soviet-age BMP-3s IFVs and a number of BTR-3/BTR-4-family armored personnel carriers. However, these figures seem to be much exaggerated. The BMP-2 armored fighting vehicle armed with a 30 mm rapid-fire automatic gun and a containerized anti-tank guided missile seems to be more effective. Within this context, the acquisition of legacy BMP-1s demonstrates the abovementioned depletion of the country's armor stocks.
