    Possible, but unlikely nonetheless. T-14 will still be in testing at the time.

    T-90A's only use the 1000 hp engine though... B3M's are great mobility wise, but lack an advanced FCS. That is where Kalina and the AM come in.
    Unless wild T-14's appear.

    Not sure if they will risk still untested and serial produced T14 to break in the mid of track, if they do bring something new i guess it would be T90MS (well, what they dubbed as T90MS for export).

    Serbians did great job considering what they work with at home and how much resources they have at their disposal.

    Seems NATO decided to launch own version of tank biathlon.

    "U.S. Army Europe and the German Bundeswehr will co-host the Strong Europe Tank Challenge at Grafenwoehr Training Area from May 10 – 12, 2016. The award ceremony will be on May 13, 2016.
    This is the first Europe-wide tank challenge taking place at Grafenwoehr Training Area since 1991. Seven NATO nations are scheduled to take part in the Strong Europe Tank Challenge – each sending a tank platoon to vie for first place. The participating nations are: Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Poland, Slovenia and the United States. Each team will be tested on offensive and defensive operations as well as tasks including vehicle identification, battle damage assessment, mounted orienteering and more. The Strong Europe Tank Challenge fosters military partnership while promoting NATO interoperability."


    What makes me laugh is that Slovenia will participate most likely with Yugoslavian built M84As Very Happy (M-84A4 Sniper, modernised with Fotona FCS)

    Tank biathlon is a mechanized military sport invented by the Russian Military. A regional stage of the 2017 Tank Biathlon international contest started on March 12 in Russia's Far Eastern Khabarovsk territory. See the T-72B tanks in action racing and firing shells — in this photo gallery by TASS.

    4. As a result of the speeches, an individual rating of each tank crew's performances will be drawn up, as well as a team rating of platoons' speeches. In total, the event will be attended by 15 best crews, three from each combined military unit of the Eastern Military District.

    5. The "Individual Race" is held on a 14-kilometer route and includes natural and artificial obstacles, combat tracks and shooting areas.

    Crews start with an interval of 1-2 minutes. At the same time, no more than three tanks can be on the route at the same time. During the course of the race, the participants overcome the escarp, slope, comb, fire strip, breadboard bridge model, anti-tank ditch with a passage, a track in a mine-blasting fence, a snow-covered field.

    Tankmen will perform firing from tank guns. On the first round, three targets must be hit at ranges of 1600, 1700 and 1800 meters. On the second circle it is executed from an anti-aircraft machine gun to strike a helicopter target at a distance of 800-1000 meters with 15 cartridges.

    Tank biathlon contest kicks off in Russia

    The seven best crews of T-72B3 tanks and six mechanized infantry platoons in BMP-2 infantry fighting vehicles will vie for the right to represent Russia at the 2017 International Army Games

    VOLGOGRAD, June 5. /TASS/. An army contest dubbed "Tank Biathlon" and "Suvorov Onslaught" kicked off today at a range in the Volgograd Region as part of the 2017 International Army Games, Russia’s Southern Military District’s press service told TASS today.

    You must be joking. T-72B3 shares similar FCS as early T-90 or newer. Jesus Christ man.

    Forgive him. He is most likely present on Serbian military forums, majority of which always repeat same claim that "T-72B has no FCS". That repetitive story came from missinterpreting words of people that some years back used to post on paluba-info forum about differences between T-72M and M-84 FCS and general optronic suite. Which truly are numerous.

    So people today here very often try to claim that T-72 series in general has no automation regarding aiming whatsoever. Which is not the complete reality for post T-72A Soviet variants that saw fielding of 1А40. You will also notice these people because they say "it has no FCS", meanwhile forgetting what FCS means. Fact that many functions that were automated on Yugoslavian DNSS-2 required manual labor on T-72 variants doesnt mean they had no FCS. Let alone fact that Yugoslavia would never reach maturity we had in FCS for M-84 without major help from few key imported components and joint projects with Bofors, so they are still boasting how that FCS is some kind of miracle, which it really isnt, it was adequate for the era, and thats about it. Sure it was a major acomplishment for Yugo industry.

    Also somehow they all seem to skip the fact that today majority of T-72Bs in service use 1V528-1M ballistic computer and 1A42 FCS and its derivates, which are all fully automated same as Yugoslavian DNSS-2 was.

    No disrespect for posters but second-third hand posts by people that saw something somewhere.

    Interesting, i wonder if you could delve more into the T-72M/M1, i watched many documentaries on these tanks in Iraq, but non seem to delve into the FCS of the Iraqi army, be it T-72 or BMP-1.

    So now you are basing off of pure fallacy?

    Actually, I think part of the biathlon is not using auto targeting and aiming but relying on skills of tankers in manual mode. But of course, you are right. Stupid Fucking Ruskies build state of the art equipment but forgets to install it on their main tanks. Give them thermal optics and all but forget to give an FCS.

    Fuck you are stupid.

    Iraqis had number of Object 172M/E1s (for non-Warshaw pact allies), only real difference tho was E1 was in NBC protection, they had paralax rangefinders, which from you insert your readings manually. Major issue was they couldnt measure distance on ranges shorter than 1100m due to nature of split-image.

    What we normally call T-72M these days had laser rangefinder on TPD-2/49 sight, and it was transfering range directly into FCS, it could measure from 500 to 4000 or so m, and you could measure range 10 times though period of 1 minute (its all theoretical tho, laser can disperse in certain conditions so you wont measure shit, you wont ever hear that from online warriors tho, in their mind stuff always works). Max magnification is 8x for optical (daylight channel) and i 5,5x for night (IR TPN-1), tho it wasnt really useful on ranges longer than 800m at night with decent moonlight. It required you to manually enter data on what type of shell are you using, temperature, moisture and side wind.



    However what you need to know is that no T-72 model was ever produced with no changes compared to other customers or domestic production, you had basically same nomenclature tanks with minor changes, be it FCS, be it radio equipment... its very hard to draw a line.

    Fully automated FCS is not wonder solution, experienced gunner can compensate for temperature and wind on the go very quickly, yes it is demanding but its not undoable.

    So you know that they missed due to FCS? Or no.. you actually dont. There is about 1000 and 1 reason why you can miss target. FCS as itself can and does not have to be the reason, solution of fire control system itself doesnt have to be put to blame either. So you switched from "it has no FCS" to "Its bad", interesting.

    No, i served in Air Defence.

    And i have 0 reason to explain you from where or how i know things. But i do.

    Even with fully automated FCS crew can be blamed for many misses, inexperienced driver very often ruins shots for an example, gunner with shaky hands can "miss-laser" target (i just made up word) which can cause miss of catastrophic proportions.

    Tank biathlon kicks off at Alabino Range in Moscow Region

    The competition started with a race of the first four crews from Uganda, Tajikistan, Angola and Laos

    ALABINO RANGE, July 29. /TASS/. The Tank Biathlon international competition has kicked off at the Alabino Range, Moscow Region, on Saturday, as part of the 2017 International Army Games. The competition started with a race of the first four crews from Uganda, Tajikistan, Angola and Laos, the Games’ organizing committee reported.

    "Teams from Laos and Uganda are taking part in the Tank Biathlon for the first time," the organizing committee said, noting that all these crews were using Russian battle tanks T-72B3.

    This day’s program will end with a race of crews from Azerbaijan, Kuwait, Mongolia and China. The crews from the first three countries will operate Russian tanks, whereas the Chinese crew will operate its Type-96B tank.

    These races are part of the Individual Race stage in which 55 crews from 19 countries will take part: Russia, Azerbaijan, Angola, Armenia, Belarus, Venezuela, Zimbabwe, India, Iran, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, China, Kuwait, Laos, Mongolia, Nicaragua, Serbia, Tajikistan and Uganda. The general rating will be formed on the basis of the Individual Race results. The first three crews will become the prizewinners in the Best Crew nomination. The sum of the three results shown by these crews from each country will determine 12 teams that will proceed to the next stage of the completion, the Relay Race.

    The semi-final races will take place on August 8-10. The four best teams will be chosen by the results of the semi-finals to compete in the final that will be held on the Games’ closing day, August 12.

    The first Russian crew will enter the struggle for the Games’ trophies on July 30. Crews from Serbia and Kyrgyzstan will take part in the race together with the Russian crewmen, the Games’ organizing committee reported.
