    Russian Tank Development

    Post  GarryB on Thu Jul 04, 2013 4:22 am

    Regarding talk of the T-90AM being the future backbone of the Russian Army that was the plan when the T-95 was still a work in progress.
    The whole concept of the vehicle families requires that the whole unit adopts the same vehicle so that the benefits can be realised.

    I suspect the Medium and Light brigades will be easy to produce though their electronic and sensor suites will be sophisticated and not cheap they will also greatly increase the performance of such units.

    To fully deliver however they would need to be integrated into a net centric battle network which most countries can't afford but even without that network connection these vehicles will be very well armed and equipped and also very well protected from threats of all kinds.

    I see no reason why mixed units could not be put together where mobility was not so important and the logistics tail did not have to be kept short where the Armata MBT and BMPT could be used together as the fire power of the unit while the IFV and APC could deliver troops etc etc.

    Regarding the Thermal sights the Catherine XP is in production in Russia and is a QWIP based IIR sensor. Work on it along with experience with other weapon types like Morfei and indeed perhaps HERMES and Ugroza and multi sensor IIR guided weapons like Kh-38 or Kh-25 could lead to a revolution in Russian weapons as a small cheap QWIP sensor could offer affordable fire and forget capability for a range of weapons and platforms.

    - field testing 57-mm naval AU A-220M, on 2014 scheduled gos.ispytaniya (!!! 0_o)
    - field testing a new 82-mm mortar 2B24-1 (light more than 10 kg mortar version 2B24)
    - performed work (design) to create a 120-mm mortar 2B11-1 ( lightweight version of the mortar 2B11 complex "Sunny")
    - the initiative to set up an easy scale-model 120mm CAO wheeled chassis (modified CN 2B16 installed on the chassis light AFVs VPK-39373 "Wolf-3" (6x6), okay, let's see what Grau says.)

    Well, this is not a tank, but it is related to UVZ


    Uralvagonzavod from Russia presents new B10M2-S armoured bulldozer for military operations.

    The Russian Defense Company Uralvagonzavod Corporation (UVZ) of Rostec State Corporation presented a unique armored bulldozer B10M2-S produced by the ChTZ-URALTEK enterprise. The vehicle was created in the framework of production diversification program which is to increase the share of civilian output, the UVZ press service said.


    New Russian-made Uralvagonzavod B10M2-S armoured bulldozer (Image source Sputnik

    "The B10M2-S bulldozer is an excellent example of dual technologies. It is armored and can be used in hot spots and in peacetime. The vehicle can engage in a wide range of bulldozing and moldering operations at I-IV-grade ground, including frozen and rock soil. It can engage in engineering operations, clear rubbles, erect protection constructions, restore damaged buildings and thus normalize the situation and promote transfer to peaceful life. The armor does not reduce its productivity and operational characteristics," it said.

    In contrast to foreign analogues the hood of B10M2-S is bullet and fragmentation-proof which allows the vehicle to operate in hostility areas. Special protection also defends the internal equipment of the vehicle cab from bullets fired from 7.62mm SVD sniper rifle. Armored engine elements protect machinery and equipment from AKM 7.62mm bullets.

    Upon customer request the level of bulldozer protection can be increased, the vehicle cab and hood cap can be changed, additional protection installed on several units, and suspension (shock-absorber) of the cab enhanced. Armor can be mounted on the tractor in the place of operation.

    Likely yes, or maybe combat engineer troops were in lack of such vehicles.

    Russian company Uralvagonzavod will exhibit more than 40 advanced products at Army 2017

    The Uralvagonzavod Corporation, part of Russia’s Rostec state hi-tech corporation, will show more than 40 advanced products, including eight military hardware items, at the Army 2017 international military and technical forum, the corporation’s press office said.


    T-14 Armata

    Rostec’s exposition will include products of the Uralvagonzavod Corporation, Burevestnik Central Research Institute, Plant No. 9, Elektromashina Company, Vityaz machine-building company and other Uralvagonzavod subsidiaries. "The T-14 Armata tank that is the sole third-generation tank in the post-war world will be shown as part of the open static exposition. The upgraded DT-10PM tracked carrier produced by the Vityaz Company will be another full-scale model," the press office said.

    "A number of products will be shown only to military experts as part of the closed exposition. The BMPT fire support vehicle and T-72B, T-72B3, T-80U and T-90A tanks will be demonstrated in operation," the press office added. The Elektromashina Company will show several systems, including a smokescreen generator, the DKMV driver display system, the APP172 gear shifting system, the KShM-2 air conditioner and the PPO-25 automatic fire-extinguishing system.

    The company is also planning to display the most advanced BM03 combat module that will be mounted on several fighting vehicles. It is currently undergoing state trials and will be made operational as part of the Taifun armored vehicle in late 2017.

    I'm curious about that BM03 combat module, since I have never seen it. I guess it's brand new, that's why.

    The Taifun, or Typhoon vehicle family is the lightest vehicle family in the new families of Russian Armoured vehicles.

    They will likely consist of four and six wheeled light vehicles in the the 10-18 ton weight class.

    The question is, which vehicle type is this BM03 turret module for... it would give us a hint as to what its armament might be.

    I would suspect it is a standardised module so lets say it is a Heavy machine gun and a grenade launcher in a small turret it could be for the AFV model of each vehicle family.

    Conversely it could be a module for a recon vehicle with a 30mm cannon but also all sorts of radar and EO sensors for recon work that can be mounted on the various vehicle families too... ie Typhoon, Boomerang, Kurganets, and Armata.

    I guess we will just have to wait and see.

    Luq man is showing what the BM03 is

    http://rostec.ru/news/4520890

    Essentially, a 12.7mm turret system. Nothing special.

    I still am waiting for the 57mm weapon system for IFV's.
