17,200 tanks (T-55, T-62, T-64, T-72, T-80) in storage.The exact numbers of Russian and Soviet tanks that are now in long-term storage are not reliably known. One can only operate on the data of two or three years ago, according to which about 2.8 thousand vehicles of the T-55 series, 1.6 thousand of the T-62 series, 7.5 thousand T-72 and more than 3 thousand T- 80. Also in storage are about 2.2-2.3 thousand tanks of the T-64 series.
the T-80BV gas turbine tank, the trains with which have already been seen moving in a westerly direction. Apart from the latest Russian T-80BVM and the Soviet T-80U, the BV version can be considered one of the most advanced tanks in the series. For its time, of course. The tank appeared in 1985 and is distinguished by the Kontakt-1 mounted dynamic protection, the upgraded 2A46M-1 gun and the new 1A33-1 fire control system. In total, along with the T-80U and T-80B tanks, at least 3,000 vehicles of modification B are in storage.
Unrest in social networks and patriotic communities was caused by footage of training reservists on T-14 Armatatanks. Presumably, the shooting took place in Kazan at the training ground of the local higher tank command order of Zhukov of the Red Banner School. Here, the combat coordination of reservists from Tatarstan takes place.
It is worth starting with the fact that a certain number of T-14s are already in the troops. According to The First Deputy General Director of Rostec Vladimir Artyakov, the first experimental industrial batch of tanks was shipped last summer. They came in addition to several dozen deeply modernized T-90M "Breakthrough". At the last exhibition "Army-2022" showed the export version of the "Armata", which indirectly indicates the formation of the final appearance of the machine.
Most likely, the tanks from the pilot industrial batch will be sent to Ukraine. If, of course, an appropriate decision is made. We hope that the crews will be recruited from regular tankers, and not from mobilized ones, albeit with combat experience. Ukraine will not be the first armed conflict for armata. According to Denis Manturov, the combat vehicle was successfully tested in Syria.
The number of T-14s in the troops can be indirectly judged by the contracts of 2020, according to which Uralvagonzavod was to supply 132 tanks to the army. The deadline is until the end of last year. According to other sources, there are now no more than 20 vehicles in combat units. This was announced at the end of last year by Deputy Defense Minister Alexei Krivoruchenko.
T-14 is the only Russian tank with a modern active protection system.The T-14 is an expensive tank, the cost of which in mass production can exceed 350 million rubles. If you collect one piece, then up to 500 million per copy is not far away. By world standards, it is inexpensive, but the modernization of the T-72 to the B3 version costs 52 million rubles. That is, for the price of one Armata, you can bring at least seven tanks to the modern level. And in terms of combat effectiveness, the T-14 will never cover the seven T-72B3. Interesting in this situation is the cost of the T-90M "Breakthrough" in 200 million rubles.
The only gauge of Ru tank production rates are the 800 T-62 refurbs to take place over 3 years. I havnt found a good source for info on the RU new production capability, not even considering sanctions. If the RU aerospace production rate (about 20/year the last few years) is a measure, the tank rate isnt going to be very high, but thats a lot of supposition.johnwilliamhunter wrote: ↑05 Nov 2022 09:47Check post #219 for example. Otherwise here are some more.
Covert Cabal used recent satellite pics of the RU tank yards and estimated about 6000 tanks available, about half of which could be refurbed into service.
Another case of culticonolatric warped reality? Markus
Is Russia a horn of plenty evil if their extensive tank losses never reduce the number of tanks in storage, especially considering their pissant production.Tom Peters wrote: ↑06 Nov 2022 22:18Cult Icon previously used the 10,000 older estimate from IISS. Not sure why Cult Icon now chooses a value which has no basis in reality. The fact is that treaty limitations for both RU and NATO had an 20,000 upper limit and in the last 20 years both sides have been removing older tanks from inventories.
It must be true since some Evgeny Fedorov said that there is
Who could ever want a more reliable reference than some random type saying that there is data?data of two or three years ago, according to which about 2.8 thousand vehicles of the T-55 series, 1.6 thousand of the T-62 series, 7.5 thousand T-72 and more than 3 thousand T- 80 [were in long-term storage]. Also in storage are about 2.2-2.3 thousand tanks of the T-64 series.
I can't argue with this, it seems the truth is that we just don't know.Tom Peters wrote: ↑06 Nov 2022 22:14
