Fallout Re: MBT's

I shall endeavor to post my response to Suhiir's last two posts in the following manner.

On the first post...
Sometime ago my posts concerning the T-80 where picked up online. I was contacted by a group about 6-8 months ago via a PM in our forum. I was asked if they could use the information I posted and if I had any additional information concerning the T-80 that would help in the development of the video as posted. I always can provide further information concerning a particular topic and did so in this case. As Suhiir astutely pointed out in her post with the video, there is no probably, as I'm fully aware of my extensive knowledge of Russian tanks and in particular the more high tech versions which the T-80 represented at the time.

I'm sure EVERYONE found that information useful and helpful. My apologies to everyone for the fact that, try as I am, I couldn't get them to change that stupid video for one more focused on the T-80. Yes it was that frustrating.

Concerning the second post...
Yes I was outed here, I had come across some information concerning the further development of the ABRAMS beyond the SEP V4. I wanted to post it, however, I needed to verify the data. After some further research, I notified the parties involved that unfortunately the data was incorrect. The first concern I picked up on was the fact that everyone knows or should know, that an increase of 1mm to the main gun is insufficient to increase armor penetration by 1000mm. Using the math formula for Thermal Dynamic Mass Expansion Coefficient Theorem (TDMECT), that to achieve 1000mm extra armor penetration you need to increase the shells performance by a minimum of 27% and increase the bore from 120mm to 123mm (124mm would be better by my calculations. )

The narrator for that video was just pissed off after spending 3 days in the production of it until I notified the group of my extensive research and results from my calculations using TDMECT.

So there you have it, with , again, my apologies. I was lead to believe these videos, especially the second, wouldn't see the "light of day" but instead it saw the "moonlight of night".

A most embarrassing situation.

Regards,
Pat

Fallout Re: MBT's

Some NEWS and other FYI items:

1.
This next site is a resource and should provide a simple example of one of the tank issues we worked on in preparation for the Patch release. I hope you find it useful.
http://www.patton-mania.com/index.html

2. Australia:
Armor upgrades coming to the Army.
https://www.armyrecognition.com/febr...s_planned.html

2. Croatia:
We've been down this road with the rumors of an upgrade coming to their M-84 tank, but this time I give credence to this latest report.
https://www.armyrecognition.com/febr...nks_fleet.html

3. Germany:
Has come to an agreement with SAAB to supple camo packages for the LEOPARD 2A7V. Few companies can do a better job with this product then SAAB, says volumes if Germany is using them.
http://www.army-technology.com/news/...d-2-a7v-tanks/

4. Iraq:
I believe I might've posted this already, but, if not this will be the last time. Iraq gets it's first batch of T-90S tanks.
https://www.armyrecognition.com/febr...s_to_iraq.html

5. Poland:
First Poland wants in on the German/French LEOCLERC
tank.
http://www.defence24.com/mbt-for-pol...olish-industry
Next the PT-91 TWANDY receives new TI sights for the tanks equipped with the upgraded SKO-1T DRAWA-T FCS. Something to address next year.
http://www.defence24.com/pco-deliver...the-twardy-mbt

6. Russia:
I know I posted about the Russians getting this tank during our OOB work, however I don't remember if I posted the tech sheet for it.
https://www.armyrecognition.com/russ...ata_sheet.html

7. Thailand:
Ukraine keeping it's promise under the revised contract. This matter is now closed as far as I'm concerned. The only news will be if the Thai's find the OPLOT-M and order more. Also seeing "hints" that they might be tracking the outcome of Pakistan's evaluation of the new OPLOT-P.
http://www.armyrecognition.com/febru..._complete.html

8. Turkey:
So Don, guess what we'll be adding to the Turkish tanks next year, and it was a "hot topic" in the forum? I know your brain is nearing the "mush point" yes, finally APS. I would say at a minimum this will go on the LEOPARDS and M60T tanks.
http://www.armyrecognition.com/march..._in_syria.html

Why Don and I love Turkey so much...
From this past January...
http://dieselgasoil.com/news/germany...ovt-spokesman/
About 2 weeks later...
https://www.middleeastmonitor.com/20...es-for-turkey/

Finally Otokar submitted which built the ALTAY prototypes has submitted it's second and final proposal to build the ALTAY when it goes into serial production. Two other Turkish companies have also submitted bids for that contract. Decision to come later in the Spring or Summer if not delayed by well, something.
http://www.army-technology.com/contr...al-production/

9. USA:
Well we're evaluating a couple of light tank options for the Airborne and the BCT in Europe. This will be our first light tank since the SHERIDON M-551. I think this will be a better tank, however, they better bring on the armor upgrade package. Hopefully in order of date.
http://www.leonardodrs.com/sitrep/q3...hicle-package/
https://www.armyrecognition.com/ausa..._10410161.html
http://www.armyrecognition.com/march...firepower.html


Now you see how long I keep things.

Anyway this is enough for now did a good file clean out which is always a good thing.

Have a good night or morning!

Regards,
Pat

Fallout Re: MBT's

For clarification concerning Thailand, by my indicating there might be a possibility that they might order more OPLOT-M tanks, I meant to say, should they find that it out performs the Chinese MBT 3000/VT-4 tanks they've received.

Regards,
Pat

They should be retiring the Stuarts too. Their job is to train the army in Anti-tank warfare, thats their use.
Their real AFV is the EE9 Cascavel, its 90mm NR478A2 HEAT supplied by Brazil is enouth to the Bolivias SK105 tanks, against Argentina/Brazil they must invest in modern ATGMs.
Thanks
