Ukroboronprom State Concern announced today that it has developed a number of projects for modernization of T-64 Tank.
The T-64B tank will be upgraded to the version of Bulat BM. The company claims that Bulat BM can be compared with Russian T-90 Tank, and it approximates to Oplot BM.
Tank has prospects of further modernization owing to the installation of stronger power-plant with the 6-TD1 and 6TD-2 engines, upgraded fire control systems, reactive protection, communications and navigation system. The cost of T-64 modernization to the version of Bulat BM is four times cheaper than the cost of production of Oplot BM.
Kharkiv Plant of Armored Tanks has also developed the Project for modernization of T-64 to the version of T-64E. Tank contains a new fire control system and guided armament package. A distinguishing feature of T-64E is the possibility to install two combat modules, including anti-aircraft gun, on the turret.
Tank has an enhanced armored protection, reactive armor system ‘Duplet’ or active protection system ‘Zaslon’. T-64 is powered with an upgraded 5TDF Engine with the capacity of 850 hp. In terms of ‘price-to-effectiveness’ ratio, T-64E is one of the best samples of modern tanks. Herewith, the price of such vehicle is significantly less than Bulat BM’s price.
Besides, Ukroboronprom is able to offer T-64BV-1 Tanks which have passed the major overhaul. This is a budget option that is optimal under the conditions of insufficient financing. In terms of ‘price-to quality’ ratio, this tank suppresses T-72 Tank after the major overhaul.
“The field of armored vehicles of Ukroboronprom is a key one within the national deference industrial complex of Ukraine and it has a closed-type development and production cycle of heavy and light armor vehicles. The key elements within this chain” Kharkiv Morozov Machne-Building Design Bureau and Malyshevplant “have saved the potential for development and production as the modernized as well as new samples of armored vehicles,” Mr. Tereshenko summarized.
