    Interview with Deputy General Director of "Rosoboronexport" Igor Sevastyanov


    [quote]

    - Igor O., on Russia Arms EXPO 2013 is expected to demonstrate a prototype main battle tank of the new generation, "Armata". What are the features of this machine?


    - Because of the secrecy of development, it should be a private screening, and talk about the specific characteristics of the new generation tank prematurely. The main features of the combat vehicle of the future - the desert tower, bronekapsuly for the crew accommodation of ammunition outside the location of people, automation and control warfare. "Armata" - a single, unified platform for heavy armored vehicles, constructed in a modular fashion. That it will be at the heart of the new tank, fire support vehicles, armored recovery vehicle, engineering machinery obstacle clearing and clearance, heavy flamethrower cars, armored vehicle launched bridges and other equipment.


    - More recently, the Russian defense industry companies are allowed to present at international trade fairs not only samples of their products for military purposes, but also R & D (research and development activities). Why is that?


    - Yes, but it is only about Russian exhibitions. Previously, this was not. This is a new and very promising level of cooperation not only with Russia, but also with foreign partners. It happens that the company has ideas, but no money to implement them. A partnership with foreign customers will help to solve this problem. But we are not talking about scientific and technological developments related to the proliferation of missile technology, nuclear weapons, weapons of mass destruction.


    - What is the Russian equipment presented at the IX International Exhibition Russia Arms EXPO 2013 is in demand on the world arms market?


    - First of all - it's the upgraded T-90C (now it is more often referred to as T-90ms). Keeping the best qualities of its predecessor (MBT T-90), it is the basic combat, tactical and technical characteristics and performance far exceeded the basic model. It features a new combat tower module, advanced chassis and has increased protection. This tank has proved to be excellent in terms of high combat efficiency, exceptional reliability and easy maintenance. We hope that in the near future T-90ms will be one of the most sought-after in the world.


    - Now "Rosoboronexport" is actively promoting the global arms market fighting vehicle fire support BMPT. What are its characteristics?


    - This is a completely new type of combat vehicle. Foreign military are not yet familiar with its actual use, and do not know all of its features. And here, at the site in Nizhny Tagil, it will appear in all its glory and power. BMPT has a modern set of weapons to fight the living power of the enemy, the suppression of anti-tank weapons, the destruction of well-protected, as well as low-flying targets before they take effect. During its firepower and combat effectiveness, it was nicknamed "The Terminator."


    - What other trends are expected?


    - Another unique machine - upgraded BMP-3 (BMP-3M). She retained all the benefits of a basic model, but has become more mobile, and thanks to an improved fire control system, capable of even more productively identify targets and to deliver fire at long range and high speeds. BMP-3M combines the functions of a fighter tanks, combat support vehicles and transport infantry, allowing to achieve a greater impact fewer machines. From the combination of the properties of Russian combat infantry fighting vehicle surpasses the best foreign models. It has amphibious, transportability all modes of transport. No other infantry fighting vehicle does not have these characteristics. These properties are evaluated on the merits of the army over the world, so the export BMP-3M and naval modification of BMP-3F has hundreds of units.


    - Heavy flamethrower system TOS-1A already enjoyed success among the foreign customers?


    - TOS-1A purchased several countries. It is designed to provide fire support to combat units. The composition of TOS-1A consists of three war machines: BM-1 with a launcher (pack of 24 guide tubes for rockets) and two transport-loading vehicle (TLV-T). All equipment is mounted on tank chassis. An important feature of the TOS-1A - high accuracy and automated testing of angles of sight. Fighting machine TOS-1A participated in actual combat, and is already in service with the armies of several countries.


    - What small arms and close combat will be able to see the visitors to the exhibition in Nizhny Tagil?


    - Various modifications of the famous Kalashnikov assault rifle, including the "hundredth" series, a high-performance machine guns "Cord" and "Pecheneg" sniper rifles SVD and SIDS. Exhibitors will also be able to evaluate the strength and accuracy of the Russian 50-mm grenade CSG-50 and 30-mm RGS-33 antitank grenade launcher RPG-29, to ensure the efficiency of jet infantry flamethrower "Bumblebee" and "Boer". Presents current development of special weapons for use in urban environments, can help to minimize civilian casualties, hostages, and special forces, as well as to minimize the destruction of material objects.


    - What will be presented to Russia Arms EXPO 2013 car number?


    - First of all - it is a series of military trucks "Kamaz". New features of these machines - increased thrust, increased margin of safety of the assembly, light steering, reliable brakes and comfortable cabin. These qualities have allowed the military to assign a family of "KamAZ" the highest category of quality, it was appreciated by foreign customers. Only during the period 2004-2011 in Qatar, Bahrain, Yemen, Syria, has sold more than a thousand of these vehicles. Now consider the possibility of creating an assembly production of "KAMAZ" in Cuba, where output will be 500 vehicles per year. Similar projects are being studied and other countries. "KamAZ" continues to increase production as military and civilian vehicles, and increasing the export potential of the company.


    - A well-known "Ural"?

    - Cars multipurpose family "Ural" is specifically designed as army trucks for the most extreme operating conditions. They stand in the armies of more than 40 countries and all have established themselves as the standard cross, endurance and reliability. Different types of troops used more than 400 items of special equipment and weapons, which is installed on the chassis of the "Ural", because of its capacity from 6 to 25 tons, and the weight of the towed trailer - from 4 to 60 tons.


    - How interesting foreign partners "Rosoboronexport" multi-purpose armored vehicle family "Tiger"?

    - The fact that the armored car "Tiger" adopted for use by the Ministry of Defence and the Interior Troops of Russia, speaks volumes. Potential buyers from abroad and actively eyeing purchase this technique. "Rosoboronexport" has delivered already in 10 countries.


    - What is the export potential of the special armored vehicle VPK-3924 SPM-3 "Bear" ?


    - In my opinion, very high. She has just completed a series of state tests, but this car has a state contract and receives appeals from foreign partners. "Bear" is able to successfully solve a wide range of special tasks in different environments due to relatively high indices of security, cross-country and reserve. It can be mounted various weapons and equipment, and landing (7-8 fully-equipped fighters, not including the driver and the vehicle commander) may use personal weapons firing through loopholes.


    - In recent years, the armies of the leading countries has significantly increased the role of automation and communication. The exhibition in Nizhny Tagil n redstavleny new Russian developments. What is it?


    - Effective management of military action is necessary to ensure reliable and protected against unauthorized access by means of automation and communications personnel, sergeants and officers. To solve this problem is developed and put into production a uniform set of soldier - adapted to fighting smart phone and tablet. Tests have shown that it is able to meet the most exacting demands and requirements. It allows you to fully integrate the military into a single system automation, control and communications department, platoon, company, effectively carry out combat missions.


    - A biathlon competitions Tank - is an element of the new marketing strategy of "Rosoboronexport"?


    - Tank biathlon opens up new horizons for the demonstration of combat power, and endurance running capabilities of modern armored vehicles, it is interesting to potential foreign customers.


    - Will it be something in the relationship between Russia and India in the purchase and sale of weapons after an explosion on a submarine Indian Navy, which was made ​​in Russia?


    - Russia is ready to help India in building national naval forces. This may be a repair and modernization of the extension of the operational life of the Russian-made submarines, Russia also plans to put its latest development - the submarine Amur-1650 to participate in the Indian tender for the purchase of six new diesel-electric submarines.


    - Activities of "Rosoboronexport" is associated with export supplies of Russian military products. But then import weapons - also your scope. To what extent, and that buys "Rosoboronexport" for our country?


    - Total imports of arms compared to exports is low. One of the largest suppliers in the Russian military-technical cooperation is France. At the end of last year, according to the Defense Ministry, Russian defense products purchased in France in the amount of 118.6 million euros (156 million dollars). The maximum amount of volume of Russian orders came in 2011, when a contract was signed for the construction of two Russian amphibious assault ships.

    The sleeve on the prototype seems to be optimised to reduce the radar signature of the main gun barrel unlike most gun sleeves which are generally optimised to ensure a steady temperature over the barrel.

    When a vehicle sits outside for long periods without firing the gun the sunlight on the upper side can heat the barrel while the underside remains cool... having one side hot and one side cold leads to the metal expanding on top and remaining unexpanded underneath leading to what is called barrel droop.

    As seen on modern tanks a sleeve ensures uniform temperature over the whole barrel and often has a muzzle reference reflector and radar sensor to detect barrel shape.

    Options for modernizing the T-72




    T-72 BMPT



    Urban survival kit




    On a side note, IMO the T-72 BMPT turret will probably be identical to what UVZ proposes for the Armata BMPT.

    I wouldn't really call those two modernising the T-72... I would suggest a more realistic description would be two adaptations to the T-72 to match two different roles... namely firepower support vehicle for tank units (BMPT) and an urban combat adaptation...

    That certain party's war has pushed the Russians to seriously consider marketing T-72 modifications.

    The mods appear to be simple and affordable, perfect for rapidly upgrading a T-72 fleet. Wink

    I would, given that the T-72 as built for the Cold War. These beast are being upgraded for the 21st century battlefield. However, I understand your point. The T-72B3 is a modernization of the T-72 in the purest sense.

    I think of a modernisation as being using newer technologies to allow it to do its job better... ie more powerful gun, or improved ammo, or improved optics or fire control system, or new armour

    The BMPT is a change of role to allow it to deal with soft targets more effectively though with protection levels comparable to the tank it is based upon.

    The Urban conflict T-72 is just addons that are largely just the extra stuff they fit when they go into a real danger area like slat armour and all the ERA and bits it would normally carry.

    In other words the add ons make it more suited to a new role, without actually making it more "modern" as such.

    When the armata BMPT is revealed I would love to see a modification for older vehicles, but keep in mind that the Armata BMPT does not have to accomodate two crewmen in its design which means more space and more flexibility with the shape and size of everything.

    The autoloader for the 120mm gun/mortar plus 40mm grenade launcher and 23mm gatling might not leave enough space for two crew so it might be impossible to have a T-72 or T-90 based BMPT with the same armament.

    I still think they could fit the 100mm rifled gun of the BMP-3M and replace the two 2A42 cannon with a single GSh-30K as fitted in the F model Hinds. As difficult as it might seem to believe the GSh-30K would actually be lighter than the 2 2A42s, yet would offer much better rate of fire performance and high velocity. Of course the 23mm GSh-23-6M would offer rate of fire, and light weight and compact ammo with a good HE punch and lower recoil.

    A decent grenade launcher would round out the fire power as a low velocity weapon able to shoot over heavy frontal cover and hit enemy forces that think they are safe.

    The 100mm HE shells pack rather more punch than any light automatic cannon could provide, though the 120mm gun/mortar rounds of the armata BMPT add shells and mortar bombs with significantly more power and extended range, plus laser guided missiles based on the Gran 120mm mortar round and the Kitolov and Kitolov-2M which is normally a 122mm round that is compatible with the 120mm rifled gun/mortar.

    The 120mm gun mortar on the Vena can reach 13km with shells and I would expect the new gun for the armata BMPT should match the 15km range of the 122mm guns, which means the gun itself can be standardised as a replacement in the wheeled brigades for the Vena mortar carriers and 2S1 122mm SPA.

    That would mean tube artillery could be unified to 120mm gun/mortars, and 152mm MSTA/Koalition, with 122mm calibre systems being replaced with 120mm gun/mortars and other calibres like 203mm and 240mm kept for special uses like mountain warfare or sieges.

    Of course what it lacks in range the 240mm mortar makes up in shell weight with its laser guided 240mm HE Frag shell weighing in at about 130kgs... my entire body weight plus about 5kgs...Embarassed   Who is a fatty...  Rolling Eyes

    Rogozin: BMPT "Terminator 2" will be based on the platform "Armata"
    Which raises the question... is it because the unmanned turret allows heavier fire power, or is it because of the heavier armour of the hull... then again the whole purpose of the BMPT was to support tanks in places where IFVs and air defence vehicles like Tunguska and Shilka wont last long, but then that is the purpose of Armata... all the vehicles having tank level armour and mobility so the IFV in the Armata unit will have heavy anti personel fire power and tank level armour so why have BMPT?

    Personally I think in many ways the BMPT is a combination of the ISU-152 and a Shilka in that it will pretty much be engaging enemy hardpoints and threats that tanks are not well equipped to engage while also not burdened with the task of taking on enemy armour (role of the tank) or moving troops around the battlefield (IFV and APC).

    In many cases where the enemy has no armour a BMPT might actually be more use than a MBT and might operate with IFVs to offer mutual support, and of course in the convoy escort role they should be rather devastating... 23mm cannon shells at 12,000 rpm... 200 per second!!!! that is one hell of a cluster bomb effect.respekt

    How much would it cost to replace a Pantsir radar array that has been shot full of holes?

    How long will it take infantry to dismount under sniper fire and provide cover for an MBT during an ambush?

    In the video is also modified Tunguska with older Pantsir's search radar firing on ground targets. Is this modernized Tunguska, army units receive in last years? If yes, than it would be interesting to see more pictures of it.
