When the T-90s drove past one of the commentators asked "so do they have air conditioning?" I remember thinking, who the hell cares? I am sure the crews do not. They just want to make sure the tank gets them into battle and gets them home alive at the end of the day. By the way, just yes or no because I am curious but I really don't care do Russian tanks have AC?
They need to operate in arctic conditions and desert conditions... + - 50 degrees C, so yes, they have AC and they also have heaters too.
no the designers make the decision, but in my estimation based on seeing one or 2 rounds, its a problem. they decided to fix it.
It is not a problem... it is an issue, and as mentioned part of the issue is the combustible propellent stub, which means no large shell case to contain some of the fumes.
A tiny metal stub case that is ejected means there will be smoke dragged back into the turret as it is ejected, but as shown in the videos it is dispersed in seconds and does not go anywhere near either of the turret crew... which is why they are leaving it to the next upgrade to sort out.
Their next gen tanks likely wont have any issue because their turrets will be unmanned and pumping them full of gun fumes would actually be a good idea to prevent fire.
ultimately the tank should be able to fire at its max rate until magazine is empty. its not a common scenario, but certainly its possible.
And who is saying they can't?
It puzzles me that people say there is no issue, while meanwhile the latest version of the tank has a significant enhancement in this area
If it was a real problem why would they wait till now to fix it?
It's probably more common to empty the autoloader magazine than you think with tanks commonly being employed as SP artillery.
Even acting as direct fire support it is very unlikely they would fire off all 22 rounds in their autoloaders at once as fast as they could... and even in a fire support role they will have HEAT and APFSDS rounds which means some rounds in the autoloader wont be suitable against soft targets they might be engaging.
Prob right. Someone posted a vid here a few days ago of a tank firing right through the forest at targets spotted by a drone. Pretty clever as the enemy will have NO IDEA where its coming from and its immune to counter battery radar. prob not good for more then about 4-5000 yards if that.
Except firing as ground support would mean HE shells which are not high pressure rounds and only use the propellent stubs, whereas the APFSDS rounds have extra propellent wrapped around them for higher velocity and gun pressure.
You would get rather less smoke in the turret with HE shells than with any other type except missiles which has even less.
Advice for all posters here and elsewhere in forums ,
If their intent is to silence you they are fucking terrible at their jobs... but then the world would be in a rather different state if they were competent.
Vladlen was one of the only guys funding FPV drone manufacturing and training,
Sure he was... ex crim, Ukrainian by blood... who was auditing him? If he is innocent then having someone independent audit his work with public funds would be a no brainer to ensure trust and confidence... did he bother with such things?
In short martyanov is worthless scum, and so are you for insulting Vladlen tatarskiys memory
You mean Maksim Fomin... sorry, I don't trust ex crims who change their names...
He was certainly pandering to a market...
Wouldn't be surprised if he was ripping people off, but even if that is true at least he chose the right side, even if he was a moaning bint.
Those responsible should be found and tried... and not traded.
