    It's the Kiev-tard regime that defines the tone. Not those pointing out the obvious. There is a moral to the story of the boy who cried wolf
    once too many times.

    India to produce Mango shells for T-90 tanks

    15 March 2017 MIKHAIL NEKRASOV

    Russia has completed the transfer of equipment to India for enabling production.


    Tecmash, a Rostec group company and Russia's largest manufacturer of ammunition, has completed the transfer of the main part of the equipment needed for licensed production of the Mango shells for T-90 tanks in India, Tecmash Chief Executive Sergey Rusakov told TASS on Mar. 15.

    Tecmash has also finished training Indian specialists for the production of the Mango shell in the country, Rusakov said.

    Mango shells are feathered armour-piercing projectiles for 125 mm calibre tank guns. Production of the shells was launched in the USSR in 1983. They were put into service in 1986.

    The contract for the licensed production of Mango shells in India was signed in 2014.

    Found this recently.



    So, it's a T-90 right, Shtora-1 is a dead give away, no?

    Some in the comments seem to wager it was one of the captured tanks.

    In any event, looks like it's been through a lot.

    It is a T-90. The T-72B3 has different features in the APS.

    I wonder how many TOW hits it took.

    this was captured in Aleppo battle by some small daesh group later sold to alnusra.....

    Its a T-90A and he can be easily identified by his turret. Its welded not cast. This first batch of T-90A has long been withdrawn from service from Russian army. Also in Syria we see T-90 tanks made from 1992-2003 before Russians upgrade them to T-90A also known as T-90A Vladimir.

    T-90, the one Nusra captured, but i have my doubts about it actually functioning. One thing is making the damn thing move, totally another making it actually work as tank should, just zeroing the turret is probably far beyond their capabilities.

    20.10.1999 T-80U and T-90 Protection Trials

    On October 20, 1999 extensive trials of T-80U and T-90 protection from various types of threats were conducted at TsNIIO 643a Testing Grounds. The tests involved firing large amounts of ordnance (including several versions of RPG ATGL, light and heavy ATGMs, and APFSDS rounds) at frontal projections of T-80U and T-90 MBTs both protected with Kontakt-V ERA and stripped of it.

    T-80U and T-90 MBTs were represented by 3 vehicles each, one with Kontakt-V ERA, one with removed explosive packages and one reserve vehicle. For the ERA part of trials, knocked-out ERA packages were replaced after each shot.

    One more T-80U MBT was used for special trials that focused on testing of Shtora-1 EOCMDAS.

    The following weapons were used:
    •Infantry ATGLs (fired at a distance of 40m) ◦RPG-7 (using advanced 105mm grenade PG-7VR with a tandem warhead, pen. 650mm RHA)
    ◦RPG-26 (disposable launcher, pen. >500mm RHA)
    ◦RPG-29 (advanced 105mm launcher, pen. 750mm RHA)

    •ATGMs (fired at a distance of 600m) ◦Malyutka-2 (pen. >600mm RHA)
    ◦Metis (pen. 460mm RHA)
    ◦Konkurs (pen. 650mm RHA)
    ◦Kornet (pen. >850mm RHA)

    •APFSDS (fired from T-80U MBT at a distance of 1,500m, the most likely round is 3BM42)
    Each weapon was fired 5 times at each target, for a total of 20 shots per weapon. The total number of shots fired during the trials thus exceeded 150.
    The trials yielded the following outcome:
    •ATGLs ◦T-90: RPG-29 produced a total of 3 penetrations.
    No other RPG rounds could penetrate even the stripped target.
    ◦T-80U: RPG-29 penetrated 3 times with ERA, all 5 times without ERA.
    Of all other grenades, one PG-7VR penetrated the stripped target.

    •ATGMs ◦T-90: No ATGMs could penetrate the ERA-equipped target. One Kornet ATGM penetrated the stripped target.
    ◦T-80U: 2 Kornet ATGMs penetrated the ERA-equipped target, all 5 penetrated the stripped target.
    No other ATGMs could penetrate.

    •APFSDS ◦T-90: ERA-equipped target could not be penetrated. Furthermore, after firing the crew entered the vehicle, activated it and was able to execute the firing sequence.
    Without ERA, one round penetrated.
    ◦T-80U (data available only for stripped target): One round almost penetrated (3mm hole in the inner lining, no visible equipment damage); two penetrated to 1/2 thickness; one missed the target completely; one hit the gun.

    The following pictures show the locations of impacts by ATGL RPG-29 (in red) and ATGM Kornet (in black) against ERA-equipped vehicles. Which of these hits penetrated was not disclosed.

    Shtora-1 Trials

    10 Kornet ATGMs with removed warheads were fired at a tank with a crew. 4 ATGMs hit the tank, the other 6 deviated to the left of the target in the middle of the flight.



    Conclusions (VF)
    •RPG-29 proved to be by far the most potent weapon among those used. As powerful as heavy ATGM Kornet, it appeared to assure the frontal penetration of T-80U even for the squad-level firepower. Even though T-90 fared better, it is still not immune to it. Considering sufficient proliferation of this weapon and the fact that this is still a fairly light infantry weapon, it is the most dangerous adversary of modern Russian MBTs, and is a very disturbing development.
    •Original reports that ATGM Kornet performance is severely degraded by ERA due to its peculiar order of internal components proved true as the ATGM with at least 100mm higher penetrating potential was not superior to a much lighter RPG-29.
    •Report of Shtora-1 EOCMDAS trials is confusing. Being laser-guided, ATGM Kornet should not suffer any interference from Shtora as it only affects IR SACLOS ATGMs. Furthermore, ATGMs can only deviate to the left if the marker is set to the left of both emitters, which is hardly likely. It is possible, however unlikely, that it was caused by a sloppy work of removal the warhead which e.g. could cause a gyro cofusion.

    I know, but it's a nice article for those who didn't see it.
