During the IX Forum of Interregional Cooperation of Kazakhstan and the Russian Federation heads of JSC "NC" Kazakhstan Engineering "and JSC" Scientific and industrial cooperation "Uralvagonzavod" signed a Memorandum of Cooperation. As reported by the press service of "Kazakhstan engineering, "according to the document, the parties will work together on redeveloping the armored vehicles of the Armed Forces of the Republic Kazakhstan in modern complexes BMPT "Terminator" and TOS-1A.
Earlier it was reported that the Kazakh army has purchased three BMPT and the same languid flamethrower systems. Operating the equipment soldiers responded very highly of these combat systems. And because control of the armed forces of the brotherly country has gone on over the optimal way — decided to remodel the outdated modification of T-72 tanks, of which about a thousand in Kazakhstan, in other standards of military equipment.
It is possible that over time it will be possible joint implementation of CBT, which are also known as "Pinocchio" and "The Terminator" in the countries of the Collective Security Treaty Organization, also in distant countries.
Unfortunately, a news report said nothing about upgrading using "Uralvagonzavod" existing armored fleet. It is possible that the decision to conduct an independent data improvement tanks.
Upgraded in Kazakhstan T-72 was first demonstrated at the exhibition held in Astana KADEX — 2012
Given option modernization of old times outside embodiment differs from semdesyatdvoyki "that tank received the dynamic protection (RS) of the last generation. As already mentioned spices, containers of the DZ very fit perfectly, and in the frontal projection is virtually no undisguised places. This Kazakhstani tank in the best possible way different from the modernized T-72BM, delivered to the Russian army.
Onboard the projection of the tank have protivokumulyativnymi lattice. Compared with dynamic protection, available in Ukrainian and Russian version T-72, they are the least effective, moreover, placed very close to the rubberized fabric screens. There is a perception that it significantly lowers their ability to withstand the cumulative anti-tank weapons.
Instead of an old and long since obsolete active-passive night sight set modern sight, able to operate in day / night thermal channel.
An old gunner's sight TPD-K1, as in Russian T-72M1, is left as a spare.
Tank commander was able to duplicate the actions gunner through the established monitor, which receives information from the main sights. Anti-aircraft machine gun system remained without changes, it is open. The tank was installed new modern means of communication. Chance Kondyukov installation.
To feed the tank is attached to the auxiliary power unit systems serving an impressive size.
Tank was tracked tape with rubber cushions. The engine seems to power up to 840 hp, and with the increased weight of the tank properties mobility worsened.
The gun remains of an old type, and therefore lack the ability to fire modern ammunition.
