    The Tank force is undergoing a major transitional period over the next couple of years with ~ 20 new battalions being formed. This will increase the total of operational tanks by 800-900 units.
    As per numbers per type, the T-72B3 could be as many as 900 operational and the T-80's could be as low as 200 operational would be the only changes.

    Has a trained crew and is part of an operational unit ie tank battalion ready for action.

    A tank in reserve or storage is basically just a piece of metal Smile

    Does they train their reserve forces ? I mean it's not the same to form a civil firing with an AK than forming him to use a tank.

    Another question about tanks also : If you fire on the turret where the gun is and penetrate the gun, will the tank be able to still use its gun after that ?

    There is no unit reserve training...some but not much individual training and reserve units are on paper only. Would take months to be battle ready.

    No!

    MOSCOW, September 7. /TASS/. By 2020

    MOSCOW, September 7. /TASS/. By 2020, Russia plans to scrap 4,000 outdated Soviet-made tanks and other armored fighting vehicles, not 10,000 as was originally planned, Chief of the Main Armored Directorate of the Russian Defence Ministry Lt. Gen. Alexander Shevchenko said.

    "Initially, when the program was drafted, it was planned that about 10,000 Soviet-made armored fighting vehicles (AFVs) stored in warehouses will be scrapped," Shevchenko said.

    "However, in line with changes in the international situation, the increase in combat skills of servicemen of the Russian armed forces, growing patriotism of Russian citizens and the appearance of new technical and technological solutions for deep upgrade allowing to turn outdated equipment into modern one, we had to review our plans," the official added. "At present, the number of armored fighting vehicles to be scrapped in line with the program until 2020 stands at about 4,000 such vehicles.".

    Probably find that the reduction in number is also related to Syria. Russia has been arming them with reserve equipment and once Syria is secured they will have to rebuild their forces with most likely but older upgraded equipment instead of new equipment to keep costs down for example instead of buying new built bmp-3 they will end up buying upgraded bmp-1&2

    Assuming no major conflict involving Russian armor breaks out, and the economic situation of Russia remains roughly the same as it is now, IMHO we can expect the T-72B3 and T-72B3M tanks te remain in "frontline duty" service beyond 2025.

    Thus answering the original question: IMHO T-72 first then T-90 ( both with Proryv turret) will be gradually replaced by Armatas. And who know light tanks on Kurganets?
    With T-80 not sure ho long would it take to make Armata's power-pack for arctic.

    Contracts of the Ministry of Defense of Russia for the purchase of T-90M and BMPT tanks

       As reported on the web resource otvaga2004.mybb.ru , published on the page of the National tender portal tenderGuru.ru, the tender documentation of NPK Uralvagonzavod discloses some details of contracts concluded by this corporation on August 24, 2017 with the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation for the supply of T- 90M and BMPT tank support vehicles.

    Recall that the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation and NPK Uralvagonzavod signed on August 24, 2017 at the Third International Military Technical Forum "Army-2017" contracts for the supply of new T-90M tanks and BMPT vehicles, as well as contracts for major repairs and modernization of tanks T-72B, T-80BV and T-90. The total amount of contracts amounted to more than 24 billion rubles.

       Now the tender documentation of NPK Uralvagonzavod has been published to ensure the implementation of these contracts for the purchase from the "sole supplier":

       2100-2018-02073. Performing works on the author's support and technical assistance in ensuring the manufacture and shipment in 2018 of 12 units of products 199 per GDZ

     2100-2018-02074. Performing works on the author's support and technical assistance in ensuring the overhaul of 20 tanks of the T-90 type with upgrading to the level of T-90M in accordance with the State Defense Committee of 2018-2019

    2100-2018-02075. Performing works on author support and technical assistance in ensuring the manufacture and shipment of 10 units of 188M products (T-90M tank) in accordance with the State Defense Order 2018-2019

       Thus, as it appears from this documentation (and as predicted by our blog), under the contracts of 2017 with the Ministry of Defense "Uralvagonzavod" it is planned to supply 12 BMPT (in 2018) and 30 T-90M (in 2018-2019 ). At the same time, out of 30 T-90M tanks only ten will be machines of new construction, and the remaining 20 will be converted during the kaital repair and modernization of the T-90 tanks. On the bmpd side, we note that in the latter case, apparently, the goal is to estimate the level of costs, if possible, to upgrade to the T-90M level of the T-90 tank fleet.

       Due to the materials of other tender purchases by NPK Uralvagonzavod, it can be concluded that this package of contracts for 2017 includes also the modernization of 62 T-80B tanks to the T-80BVM level (delivering 21 units in 2018 and 2019).

    NOTE: assume they would mean 31 units per year

    I guess they want to test the waters to see if this is the choice or if Armata is more worth it.

    Hard to tell, rather small orders these days while budget is significantly more than it was before.

    They have reported that there will be 200 tanks per year. This order is for less then 100 over 2 years, so minus the T-14's that must mean the rest will be T-72B3's. Interesting to note 10 new build T-90M's.

    I know they could have borrowed same tech for T-72B as they are doing for T-90M. Wonder why they opted out of that? Unless the B3 is really only expected to serve long enough till Armata's come out in numbers.
