Are any T-64 and its variants been offered for export? Is the T-64BM2 Bulat only for Ukraine? Or are intending to export those? If so how expensive would it be for the standard package?

View Post


NO T-64 (or it's variants) were ever expoted. It was fo USSR use only. 6 tanks were smuggled tu US in 90-s.

Dear Harkonnen, do you have some details about BMPT-64? I think this version is so soundble for Russia and China who have a lot of  old MBTs such as T-54/55/62.

BMPT-64 may be offered for export.

Harkonnen
I have read your article using a translator and it was very interesting, well done. In one section you compare the T-90 and the T-84, you state that the firepower is similar, but previously in the article you mentioned that the ukrainian guns are equivalent to the 2A46M-1 gun. Can you give more details?

View Post



The Ukrainian gun by the opinnion of users is superiour in many aspects to 2A46M-1 gun. But in general it is not wrong to say that the firepower is basicly similar, also taking into account new APFSDS fielded by Russian Federation. Though Ukraine may offer some advanced tank lunched guided missiles, which are 100 %immune to APS and use top attack function.

Yes, but unfortunately it was cannibalized to upgrade the fleet of ex-ARVN M47 stored in the parking garage. The only thing that remains is part of the hull and left-over flame throwing equipment.

That's pretty scarey. I got out of the Army before my unit got the M-60A3, so I never had a chance to try out thermal sights. The worst part of gunnery for me was identifying targets, which might be a green panel in a grassy area. I was also one of the crazies who wouldn't fire unless I was sure that I had identified the target. I doubt that I would have had a long career in combat against vehicles equipped with Kontras.

Fortunately, my tank didn't have a window. :P Actually, that green suit seems to be less effective than the tank cozy, but I'm sure it is effective.

Is there a L/D ratio estimate on this round?

Looks closer to BM42 rather than BM42M:
