Unless Russia uses those colossal natural gas, coal and oil reserves to it's advantage, it's staying in that economic slump. For a industrialized nation, Russia has a huge amount of resources, the problem is that most of these resources are in Siberia, which makes extraction difficult. Even though Russia has the most Natural gas of any nation on the planet, it doesn't matter if getting to it is a large hassle. If they can make use of their resources, they could start to reach their former glory, or at least some of it.

But yes, the T-95 is really nothing more than a concept at this point.

Hi there all,


Well, if this comes off, guess you will get more than just pictures, as evidence of the existance of the T-95, refer URL included below, along with an extract from the text.

http://www.defpro.com/news/details/14065/


"06:51 GMT, March 26, 2010 MOSCOW Russia's new main battle tank (MBT), the T-95, could be exhibited for the first time at an arms show in the Urals Region this summer, the developer and future manufacturer of the tank has said, according to RIA Novosti.

The development of the new tank dubbed "Item 195" began at the Uralvagonzavod design bureau in the early 1990s. Russia will become the first country in the world to have the 5th-generartion MBT if the military commissions the vehicle.

The work on the project has been conducted for many years. If the government gives us a 'green light' we will exhibit the tank at the [Russian Expo Arms 2010] arms show in Nizhny Tagil this summer," general director of the Uralvagonzavod plant Oleg Siyenko told RIA Novosti in an exclusive interview".

Wouldn't it really throw you, if this 5th generation MBT is actually demonstrated in it's full Combat Robotic configuration, paired with and controlled from an Attack Helicopter. As the first of the T-95 were reported as deployed to training units in the last quarter of 2009, they've certainly had enough time to iron out any operational bugs in this format, and demonstrating the T-95 in the robotic role would overwhelm any arguements about it's superiority over any other MBT in existance or currently under development.

Deployed to units? That information is really controversial, especially against deputy defence minister's last month statement that the project had been cancelled.

Dude the T-95 were reported? Are you on crack or something? The tank didnt even leave the drawing board, there's a few plywood models and thats it...

The article you quoted does not support your made up stories sorry, this kind of articles have been out and around for umpteen years now claiming T-95 is just around the corner and is going to have this or that, well its been 10 years now.

The prototype was announced in 2000, now its 2010 and there's not even a technology demonstrator let alone a prototype.

Stop making stuff up, go read up and return with facts.

I think the t-95 is going to come out when we first land man on Plato.

OK folks. time has always been on my side in the matter of the T-95, you might like to take a look at the article and photos at the following URL http://sovietoutpost.revdisk.org/?p=21
and then drop down to the last question and the response. Purposefully, I used both my full name and my usual identity when posting to a forum, just to see what the reaction would be. It was interesting, initially, the question stayed on the forum for little more than a day, with a notice, pending response from the moderator, then the question was removed from the forum and was only put back when they posted the answer. Fellas, I really don't care to much what you think about all this at this point, look closely at this engine and consider that response. Another webpage I've read clearly states the two engines that did the 1700 hours were in the two T-95 pre-production units; I must assume these are the two units that went to the high security proving grounds in central Russia for refinement of operational procedures, etc. I'm not going to do everything for you, you can go find the other Russian webpages yourself and independently confirm what I've written here. I suggest you people re-read everything I previously wrote in this forum and reconsider this matter. Incidentally, despite what you may have heard or may think, the T-95 is very much alive and well, it has simply had a name change and is now referred to as Armata and fellas, there is a lot more about this MBT and associated systems, to be told, but why bother, you all know so much better than I what is happening. After all, my involvement was nothing greater than simply inventing the engine and defining the form of the various automotive aspects and suggesting the combat scenarios for the MBT's use. When you look at that engine, just remember the often limiting factor in large scale operations is logistical support and the very thirsty nature of MBT engines, then remember, this engine uses less than 33% of the fuel of a contemporary diesel. Then think again about this, Russia now has a technical lead of 16 years in developing these power plants and sorry folks, you haven't even started to play this game.

Unless Russia is willing to build up its economy focusing on its secondary and tertiary industries, it will not be able to build anything new. Its Air Force, Army and Navy had shrunk much compared to back then. Most of the aircrafts, ships and tanks already disassembled and stowed in storage for use when necessary.

T-95 supposed to be replacement for obsolete T72/80/90 but due to financial issue, the plan was scrapped and rely on upgrading T-72 into T-90 and BMP-2 into BMP-3 that could barely hold off against the modern counterparts M-1A2, Challenger 2, Leclerc and Leopard 2. War experience has proven, the modern IFV will have to be heavily armored and armed with proper gun and few automated MG like Namer IFV to survive insurgents attack.They don't have much choice, unless they are willing to change and compete in economy globally to get into top10 highest GDP nation.

Topic: Don't think for a minute the T-95 is dead


Oh come on fellas.
Surely somebody can do better than these two posts in response. What happened to all those people who were so willing to doubt and ridicule? I remember somebody wanted a photo of one of these engines before he'd take this matter seriously. Well, it's always a bit hard to get something like that when the whole program remains classified and I was staggered when the article with the photos of the original prototypes turned up, along with a couple of other articles on the T-95.
I don't know where some of you people get your info, but you should be aware, Mr Putin moved to acquire "Mistral" Class Landing Assault Ships from France, at a price in the $ billions, because the Russian Naval ship builders were running at full capacity and would be for the foreseeable future.
I suppose you are aware the "Amarta" program, which is a common armoured format, has been broadened to now also have a follow on component that is a common wheeled platform as well?
You're right about reduced numbers; under Putin, Russia's military is no longer "the Army of Good Enough"; it's going high tech, quality not quantity is now the name of the game..
