    Russia in early 2021 will complete tests of ceramic armor for armored vehicles

    The General Director of the Technodinamika holding believes that the advantages of armor lie in its lightness and great resistance to artillery and tank weapons


    "Factory tests are underway. I think they should be completed within 3-4 months," he said.

    Nasenkov said that the ceramic armor plates are planned to be used to protect armored vehicles. "Our development has such advantages as lightness and greater resistance to various artillery and tank weapons," said the head of the holding.

    Armored plates made of corundum ceramics were developed by the Ufa Aggregate Production Association. Corundum ceramics is a superhard material based on aluminum oxide.

    In the Park of combat vehicles of the motorized rifle unit of the southern military district (SE), stationed in the Stavropol territory, a ritual was held in a solemn atmosphere to secure regular weapons for the newly arrived military personnel.

    The unit commanders handed the tower keys to T-72B3 tanks and BTR-82AM armored personnel carriers to the drivers, and the drivers of KAMAZ, Ural, and UAZ cars were given the keys to the ignition lock and forms. The crews and crews were assigned armored vehicles "Tiger", reconnaissance chemical vehicles RHM-6, communications equipment" Auriga"," Azart " and complexes of unmanned aerial vehicles.

    Military personnel of motorized rifle units received upgraded Dragunov sniper rifles, special weapons, Kalashnikov assault rifles and machine guns.

    The solemn event dedicated to the beginning of the training period was attended by more than 1.5 thousand military personnel of the southern military DISTRICT, about 400 units of military equipment were involved.

    NOTE: the MR brigade stationed in Stavropol territory is the 205th at Budyonnovsk. Up until now it has been equipped with MT-LB's, has anyone heard of it being re-equipped with the BTR-82AM. Great news if correct.

    Tank armor was proposed to be made of wire
    Russian Ground Forces: News #2 - Page 37 T-90_kuzmin_d_850

    Scientists of Bryansk state technical University have developed a new method of making armor for military equipment.

    "According to the new technology, armor is grown by an additive method by fusing wire and then strengthened using wave shock," the Foundation for advanced research told RIA Novosti. They noted that a number of enterprises of the military-industrial complex showed interest in the development.

    The technology was developed by BSTU together with FPI and transferred to Russian factories that produce armored vehicles. The protection grown by the new method is 15-30 percent lighter than homogeneous, and its strength is higher. In addition, the creation of armor from wire can significantly reduce the consumption of high-quality steel.
