Though tank his eyes followed a narrow circle of professionals, it is clear a lot about him. In general, to the information contained in the print media and online publications, of course, should be treated critically. According to unconfirmed reports, the combat weight of the T-95 is 55 tons Chassis has gidroaktivnuyu suspension. X-shaped diesel engine power of 1500 hp provides speeds over 75 km / h on the highway and 50 km / h — on rough terrain. Progress in store — more than 500 km. The main highlight of the latest battle machine — its assembly. A small tower with a 152-mm gun 2A83-launcher and automatic loader — the desert.
The crew, consisting of 3 persons (with the introduction of automation and it may be two people) is in the body of the machine in an armored capsule that not only promotes the safety of tankers, and reduce the silhouette machine (height — 2 m clearance of 500 mm), making it less noticeable on the battlefield. Ammunition of 42 controlled, armor-piercing and high-explosive shells stored in a special secure unit. Reservations hull and turret — with the introduction of a multilayer integrated dynamic protection last generation. Active Protection System — "Drozd-M" or "Arena-E." There is also a complex optical-electronic suppression "Blind-2." To combat the manpower of the enemy machine guns provided 14.5 mm and 7.62 mm. Repel attacks from the air is designed 30mm automatic cannon. According to some sources, a version of the tank with four missiles 9M311. All this suggests that the combat stability of the tank must be very superior.
The system of command and control with the introduction of optical, thermal imaging, infrared channels includes a laser range finder, and, perhaps, and a radar station. All information is meant to show the monitors that allow the crew to monitor and assess the situation around the tank, including those in the upper hemisphere. The system of "friend or foe" rescue from "friendly fire" and will give the confidence to act in complex criteria of the modern battlefield.
May look something like this T-95 tank
Of course, so should look more "stranded" version of the tank. Maybe not all options will be implemented, at least once. Worked out and more than ordinary, and it follows, more a cheap version of the T-95. The head of the Ministry of Industry and Science of the Sverdlovsk region Alexander Petrov said Uralvagonzavod produced several prototypes machine. And which of them was shown at the Nizhny Tagil exhibition, is unclear.
The appearance of the T-95 has been called the "timing is everything." As the prognosis of the Center for Analysis of World Trade guns (TSAMTO), the global market of new main battle tank (MBT) in the next four years (2010-2013). Expected 20% increase in sales compared with the previous four-year period. And at the moment our motherland with the T-90S — the undisputed favorite in the area. In 2006-2009. Our country has exported 488 MBT price of $ 1.57 billion. In 2010-2013,. shipments with the existing contracts, as stated purposes for the direct delivery and licensing program can create 853 new vehicles in the amount of nearly $ 2.75 billion.
After a glut in the 1990s. market previously installed tanks, which were sold at dumped prices in the last couple of years there is a steady increase in sales of new MBT specifically. This is due to the fact that the conflicts of the last decade have revealed an acute need for modern tanks.
Meanwhile, the last debate on the need of tanks in general. At first glance, the continued improvement of anti-tank shows the "decline" of this type of weapon the Army. Get and promising T-95, which not many who live, then followed. Like, he will not be able to resist the modern anti-tank systems.

It is worth recalling that during the operation Iraqi Freedom South American troops suffered significant losses in the Abrams tanks from of old RPG-7, which was used against enemy insurgents and Iraqi soldiers scattered parts offered resistance. However, as acknowledged by the South American generals without Abrams tanks they have never been able to take Baghdad and seize terrain throughout the Middle Eastern country.
We should not forget that there are no nesbivaemyh aircraft, missiles and gallakticheskih vehicles, unsinkable ships and submarines. Every emplacement, including ATRA can suppress and kill.
In connection with the development of countermeasures and strategies need to be reviewed, if anything, the strategy using armored forces, but turn away from them would be the height of irresponsibility. They should not act alone, but accompanied by armored tank support (BMPT) and, perhaps, other machines of oppression anti-tank weapons.
In the coming decade, the T-72 and T-80 Russian Army will need replacement. T-90 — good machine. It meets the requirements of the present day or. But the ability to upgrade its already close to the limit.
Because the refusal of the Ministry of Defense in April of this year, the upcoming funding programs from the creation of the T-95, to put it mildly, it looks amazing. Yes, now no one in Moscow is planning division of Western Europe armored wedges. But increasingly clear looming threat of the eastern borders of the Russian Federation, where the gaps in the defense can be closed only by mobile tank units, specially designed with the most modern machines.

I think, "cooling" of the Ministry of Defence to the tanks explained simply a lack of funds from the War Department on the implementation of all programs desperately needed upgrading the Air Force, the Strategic Missile Forces, Navy, and Army Gallakticheskih. When we asked the Director General of JSC "Scientific and Production Company" Uralvagonzavod "Oleg Sienko about the fate
of the T-95 in the light of antitankovyh sentiment in the Russian Ministry of Defense, he was evasive about the brand new tank, but said:" Sometimes sounding assessment of Russian tanks seem to me biased. For the benefit of our armored vehicles market is strong evidence. The demand for tanks Uralvagonzavod confirms the highest combat characteristics of our machines "(interview Oleg Sienko" Uralvagonzavod responds to market challenges, "see in this issue of the magazine).
Mobile drilling rig MBR-125
According to the Minister of Industry and Science of the Sverdlovsk region Alexander Petrov, the development of the T-95 Uralvagonzavod is without the help of others, in other words in an active manner, without the participation of the Ministry of Defence. In his view, the decision to close the MO of the "object 195" obviously early, as the new tank, certainly will need customers. This does not have to hesitate. Darkest catwalk T-95 at the "Defense and Protection 2010" — not a random phenomenon, organized by someone's whim. "Rosoboronexport" and FSMTC just showed enthusiasm for the newest machine to have at this time to start preparing for her promotion in the outdoor market. So, by the way, it was with the T-90. They were initially interested zabugornye customers, and later the Ministry of Defence already. Well, the number of T-90 in zabugornyh armies much larger than the Russian army.
This tank, as in all the years of exhibitions of weapons in Nizhny Tagil, was a major focus of the participants and guests of the "Defense and Protection 2010". Demonstration of his abilities on the tank ranges, and other armored Ural companies are constantly lured an unlimited number of viewers. This is not the case. If MVSV the exhibition "Engineering Technologies" in Zhukovsky near Moscow tanks demonstrate how they can dance, then at the site of Nizhny Tagil Institute of Metal tests they dive, jump and shoot, in other words work in other fields, not just fun.
But not with tanks united lived exhibition. Especially because its main specialization — means of civilian defense and counterterrorism operations. All deployed extensive exposure, representing the conversion products Ural companies. It is appropriate to recall that the same Uralvagonzavod produces more cars and road-building machines, if armored vehicles. UralVagonZavod present new models of mobile drilling rigs MBR-125 MBR-160 and the development of "Spetsmash." The introduction of such systems can significantly facilitate the work of exploration, drilling and workover serious. Cabins are equipped with their operators on a climate control system that allows you to comfortably work in all weather criteria. ICBMs and ICBM-125-160 equipped system gidrofikatsii complete the drilling process, in other words, they do not require additional Hydraulic power station. Bench tests experienced MBR-125 and the MBR-160 is scheduled for September, after which they plan to put into operation. Batch creation will start at 2011 to 2014 Uralvagonzavod means to create up to 30 units of both models annually. This is the strategy proposal Uralvagonzavod the oil and gas industry of Russia. What would be the answer? "I hope that the response will be positive," — said the Minister of Industry and Trade Minister Viktor Khristenko, who examined the exhibition "The defense and protection" MBR-125 and the MBR-160. He praised the mobile drilling rigs Uralvagonzavod highlighting that looks forward, when oil and gas companies respond to these new developments.
Several companies showed a complete approach on the main theme exhibition. Thus, the metropolitan of "Tethys Pro" submitted suits for fire fighters and special diving equipment for the forces of aqua area, also remotely operated unmanned underwater vehicles.
In the exhibition "Defense and Protection 2010" was the role of 252 enterprises from 30 regions of Russia and foreign countries. Have been demonstrated to more than 2.2 million samples of equipment and other items. The exhibition was visited almost 35 thousand people, including 37 from zabugornyh countries.
Was saturated and the business part of the forum. July 14, marking the day the Bastille — State prazdnichek the French Republic, an agreement was signed between the French company Thales and the Ural Optical and Mechanical Plant on cooperation in the creation of military and civilian vehicles on UOMZ. Interaction is provided in the area of laser technology, thermal imaging and opto-electronics, sights for small guns. KAMAZ signed contracts with security agencies for the supply of vehicles, machinery and spare parts for them.
Now Nizhny Tagil began preparing an international exhibition of arms and military equipment, Russian Expo Arms 2011, which will take place next summer. As said Oleg Sienko and CEO of Nizhny Tagil Institute of Metal Valery Rudenko tests will be reorganized municipal demo exhibition center, which will include activities and to improve the infrastructure of the Ural site. It spectators will be able to behold the whole military operation involving all branches of service. Let's hope that at the Russian Expo Arms 2011 will be held at the end of the day, and a public premiere of the T-95, which, certainly, would not only by its decoration, and the "highlight" of the exhibition season next year.
