T-80UD

T-80UD

Main Battle Tank Intended to defeat armoured stationary and mobile enemy objects round the clock, as well as to support subunits of the Army on the march and in battle. A necessary level of survivability of the tank is ensured by use of combined armour, built-in explosive reactive armour, fire-fighting system, as well as a system of protection against nuclear attack. Decreased detectability of the tank is achieved by low silhouette, a possibility of self-entrenching and installation of a smoke screen laying system. The use of KMT-6 and KMT-7 treadway mine-clearing ploughs enables the tank to cross mined areas at…

BM Bulat Tank

BM Bulat Tank

Modernisation of T-64B Battle Tanks The Kharkiv Morozov Machine Building Design Bureau (KMDB) has developed design documentation, has manufactured and successfully tested a prototype of upgraded T-64B (BM Bulat) battle tank in order to enhance its combat and technical characteristics up to the level of modern tanks. The modernisation covers three key areas: Mobility (modernisation of the power pack in order to enhance mobility) Protection (modernisation of the protection in order to reduce vulnerability to attacks of the up-to-date anti-tank weapons) Firepower (modernisation of the weapons-and-fire control system in order to increase the efficiency of fire)
