Fallout Re: MBT's

Since Dons post prior to this I believe the T-55S discussion has shifted somewhat.

I would refer you to the SPA and SPAA Thread Posts 240 -242 for further.

Now for something you'll be hearing about more from me later. I knew Russia was digging deep into their stockpiles of early "new" post WWII tanks. However, over the next three years Russia intends to modernize 800 T-62M & T-62MV tanks. That number doesn't include the 40 confirmed combination that has already been fighting in the Ukraine. You would do well to read the following it covers this issue but goes much deeper to grasp the situation with Russian armor.
https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zon...-losses-report


I don't remember posting the following but, the situation on the ground since this was published back in April this year bears out much of what is discussed in the following and also borne out in the above ref as well. I feel the same about this article as the above one.

The following has been UPDATED concerning the Czech Republic sending the Ukraine both the T-72M4 and BVP-2 IFV combat vehicles. It's not happening! (At least not now.) .

They were sent to Poland as part of a joint exercise.

Well one of my tanks that I predicted several++ years ago would be in the game, will be.

The 1980s-vintage tanks will come from the inventory of the Czech defense industry, according to the three governments. They aren’t Czech army tanks, the defense ministry in Prague stressed. The Czech army uses upgraded versions of the T-72M, which is the downgraded version of the basic Soviet-era T-72A.

The enhanced T-72Bs the Americans and Dutch are paying for are T-72As with a better fire-control system, thicker armor, a new stabilization system for the 125-millimeter main gun and an uprated, 840-horsepower engine.

In 1985, the 42-ton, three-crew T-72B was state-of-the-art. In 2022, it’s still one of the better tanks Ukraine has access to—especially with the improved optics Czech technicians are set to install.

The tanks Kyiv has received from its foreign allies, in order to make good these losses, generally have been less sophisticated than the tanks it already had. The donations have included at least 270 T-72Ms—from Poland, mostly—as well as 28 even older M-55Ss from Slovenia.

The 90 T-72Bs the Americans, Dutch and Czechs are providing should raise the overall quality of the armor the Ukrainians are acquiring from foreign sources.

Non-Russian foreign sources, that is. Russia is by far Ukraine’s biggest tank donor. The Ukrainians have captured nearly 500 T-62, T-72, T-80 and T-90 tanks that Russian crews have abandoned on the battlefield.

Keep in mind there's only so many weapons slots available for each nation. And getting a dozen or so of a weapon it's hardly worthwhile to create a weapon and unit.

Use the "Captured" button when creating a battle and get anything from any OOB with the nation being set to your own.
