T72B3 Obr. 2022?

Recently news segments from Uralvagonzavod show new T72B3's being fitted with very similar fenders on its front as the T-90M. It additionally has ERA on the gun mantlet. Are we seeing the departure of the T72B3 Obr. 2016 to the Obr. 2022? What other upgrades could there maybe be?

        Because America is neither fighting a war nor has a more modern service tank it could produce
        Russia could "theoretically" produce the more "modern" T-90M instead of the shittier t-72 but nah lets build t-72s and put a new upgrade package on it

        Another friendly reminder: of the 3,000+ tanks deployed throughout the Gulf War against the 4th largest army in the world, the U.S. army lost about 9, and about 6 of those losses were from friendly fire.

              Where? the best they had was t72m firing whatever they could get their hands on. and the vast majority of their fielded tanks were even worse t54/t62s. AND THEY ARE ARABS

                the t72m is the t72a but downgraded in every possible way tool. its much better then the base t72 in the way that drinking piss is much better than eating shit

                >The T-72M is the export version of the original T-72 Ural, and was the main tank for Warsaw pact states like Czechoslovakia, Poland, and East Germany (DDR) during the mid to late 1980s. Compared to the T-72A, the T-72 Ural/T-72M's main identifying features is a thinner, more sloped front turret, and a lack of smoke grenades. Normally the T-72 Ural, along with nearly all Soviet era export tanks, are equipped with the TPD-2-49 coincidence optical rangefinder
                so the exact same tank USSR had in 1974

                no. the t72m (MONKEY) sent to iraq is actually even worse than the t72ms sent to warsaw pact countries. iraq requested them to be cheaper so they could buy more because they are retarded. also iraq only had ammo from the fucking 1970s that couldn't pierce the abrams. and dont even get me started on the lion of babylon (lol)

                flat out wrong. The sides of the M1A1s sent to the conflict were easily penetrable by what was, at the time, only 15 year old ammunition. Only the front of the m1s were reliably protected.

                how in the fuck would a t72 see the side of an abrams that can see the t72 first? yes it can pen the sides but this would literally never happen. the engagements were all** frontal hence the lack of abrams losses. also that was the best they had and in limited numbers. iraq bought much older ammo from soviet stocks because they planned on fighting older tanks from neighbors like iran + they are retarded (again)

          And I'm assuming at least a few of those 6 weren't "the tank blew up, burned down and then blew up again", but more something like "it's pretty fucked, let's just write it off instead of trying to fix that mess".

      I don't like it. Likely to disable or damage the gun barrel in a sympathetic ERA explosion anywhere on the front turret.

        T-62 is enough. It has cannon, machine guns and is generally bulletproof.

        Am i the only one who thinks that it is hilarious that the T-62 is incapable of penetrating the armor of any tank made in the last 40+ years without the Russians buying upgraded North Korean AP ammo? The HALF CENTURY old AP they have can barely do 200mm while examples of modern DPRK AP we got from Ethiopia can do 400+

            Russia hasn't really fielded a new weapons system in 30+ years while the DPRK constantly tests and developed new ones, their rocket artillery in particular is already significantly better than anything Russia has. There have been a few threads where upon examination the Pokpung-ho V is probably more capable than any tank Russia currently fields, keeping in mind that unlike Russia North Korea can actually produce new tanks.

            North Korea and Russia both share delusional grandeur.
            Difference is North Korea’s top brass knows most of it is fluff and they do pump whatever meager resources they have into their military. They still got something to prove.
            Russia got heavily spoiled by all the leftover arsenal from soviet collapse, plus continued hype from the west about how dangerous and powerful they are.

    Is this 45° stuff NERA or ERA. NERA needs steep angle, so I kinda assume it's that metal / rubber filled stuff? Or is steep angle also beneficial for ERA?

      ERA flier plate needs to be angled and they have a fairly steep constructional angle inside the brick. Russian armor guidelines call for multiple ERA bricks to overlap the line of sight to high-threat directions, but I guess that is not possible here.

      The original T-90 (1993) was literally just a T-72B with Shtora and better FCS with thermal sight and a proper meteorological sensor. They rebranded it because of the bad rep T-72 had from the Gulf War
      T-90A is that with a new turret and better thermals, but the same T-72 hull
