T 84 Oplot Main Battle Tank Ukraine 925 001

Description

The T-84 Oplot main battle tank is the result of continued main battle tank development by the Kharkiv Morozov Machine Building Design Bureau, which is Ukraine's leading design authority for armored fighting vehicles. The Oplot MBT armament includes a 125mm gun, a 7.62mm coaxial machine gun, and a 12.7mm anti-aircraft machine gun. The tank crew is also equipped with sub-machine guns, hand grenades, and a signal pistol. The overall layout of the Oplot main battle tank is conventional with the driver’s compartment at the front, the fighting compartment in the center, and the power pack at the rear. The driver is seated in the center and has a single-piece hatch cover that lifts and swings to the right. In front of this are three forward-facing periscopes, the center one of which can be replaced by a night driving device. There is an escape hatch on the hull floor behind the driver. The commander is seated on the right and the gunner on the left both provided with single-piece roof hatches. The Oplot main battle tank is based on a T-80UD but has a number of advanced features which distinguish it from the T-80UD.

Technical Data

Armament
The main armament of the T-84 Oplot comprises a stabilized 125mm KBA3 smoothbore gun fed by a carousel-type automatic loader and fitted with a thermal sleeve and fume extractor (bore evacuator). The gun is stabilized in both elevation and traverse. The main gun has a quick-replacement barrel which can be changed under field conditions without the need to remove the gun from the tank. Turret traverse is electric while gun elevation is hydraulic. The turret can be slewed through 180° in less than 5 seconds, as the rate of traverse of the turret on the hull is up to 40 °/s. Manual gun and turret controls are provided for emergency use. Types of ammunition that can be fired by the gun include APFSDS (armor-piercing fin-stabilized discarding sabot), HEAT (high explosive anti-tank), HE-FRAG (high explosive fragmentation) rounds as well as laser beam-riding guided missiles. The missile can be fired while both the tank and target are moving. The missile has a tandem warhead to defeat targets fitted with explosive reactive armor as well as modern spaced armor, optimized against HEAT attack.
Design and protection
The T-84 Oplot has a three-man crew configuration, which includes the commander, gunner, and driver. The crew compartment is separated from the ammunition storage to provide added safety. The Oplot is fitted with an integrated vehicle protection system, which includes passive armor, explosive reactive armor array as well as a number of other tank protection devices that are optimized against modern anti-tank weapons and make the tank considerably less vulnerable to the full range of anti-tank weapons. The armor protection of the Olot, which includes advanced multi-layer armor and a built-in third-generation explosive reactive armor package for the turret and chassis, provides to the Oplot with a high level of battlefield survivability. The main armor is a laminated ‘sandwich’ of armored plate and ceramics which gives the tank superior ballistic protection against most forms of attack greatly reducing penetration and behind armor effect.
Mobility
The T-84 Oplot is powered by a model 6TD-2 diesel engine developing 1,200 hp. The engine has been designed to give good performance in all weather conditions, in particular at high temperatures. Although a diesel engine, the 6TD-2 diesel will also run on other fuels including petrol, kerosene, jet engine fuel or their mixture in any proportion. To extend the operational range of the Oplot, additional drum-type fuel tanks can be mounted at the hull rear. These can be quickly jettisoned if necessary. Each of these fuel drums holds 200 litres of fuel and is connected to the main fuel supply.
Combat Equipment
The T-84 Oplot MBT standard equipment also includes an auxiliary power unit, provision for deep fording, satellite navigation support system, self-entrenching device (dozer blade), electric bilge pumps as well as internal and external communications equipment. A crew compartment heater and power pack preheating are also provided for operation at low temperatures. The Oplot is fitted with an EA-8 under-armor diesel auxiliary power unit (APU) developing 8 kW. This allows the vehicle to run key subsystems without the main engine running (for instance, when the tank is operating from a static fire position or when the vehicle is on silent watch). The APU is mounted at the rear of the hull on the right side.
