Objekt 279. The Modelling News: Let’s make tracks!

Ufon pro jadernou válku: Sovětský obrněnec Objekt 279

They slip into their covers easily and look good. Persistent requests by the armor museum of Uralvagonzavod for transfer of at least one Object 187 for restoration and display have been rebuffed. So to achieve a fresh market you either have to start afresh and completely re-invent a kit making it much better, or find a new market altogether that has not been tapped. The tank was originally equipped with a 1000 hp engine, but as an experiment the 1250 hp gas-turbine engine and transmission of the was fitted with a corresponding change in the hydro-shock absorbers, and the result sent to trials. Reservation of the tower is also improved, since the tower can be without a tail niche, usually used to place ammunition, due to the small capacity of the hull.

The bottom of the hull looks very boat like with the slots for the narrow sponsons which the running gear is mounted on. I next went off the reservation a little and joined my two fuselage halves horizontally. Instead, the preferred project was the Object 188 T-90 , which was a symbiosis of the T-72B's hull and some of the Object 187's systems. Armour protection of the turret was significantly improved and it was increased in size again, reaching a width of 3. Enhancement was limited largely to armament in these programs, however, while the Object 187 was focused on an extreme level of protection, surpassing all third generation tanks even today. The hull is placed on top, above the low chassis, occupying again the entire permissible width of the envelope, and not its part, due to which it is possible to carry out a wide fighting compartment over its entire height, which is located between the tracks in existing heavy tanks, occupying only the remaining part, usually not exceeding half the total width. Each series differed significantly from the previous, clearly demonstrating the evolution of the tank.

Naopak ale chyběla munice: kompaktní tvar trupu i věže poskytoval prostor jen pro 24 dělostřeleckých granátů. The tracks then are easily glued in place along the rollers at this point so you can get to all parts of the undercarriage with no problems. Conducting full-scale studies on this tank made it possible to get an answer to the question of the appropriateness of using a new chassis in promising tank building, as well as the use of such combat vehicles as special for operations in some specific areas of the country Far North, deserts, etc. Object 279 carried 24 rounds of ammunition, with charge and the shell to be loaded separately. The top of the turret has two hatches which can be posed open or closed. Nova zasnova je povečala učinkovitost tanka na neravnem terenu in omogočila premagovanje naravnih ovir, kot so močvirja, globok sneg in polja s podrtimi drevesi. So they need to be almost jammed into the bottom of the hull.

Object 279 early

There are two long sections that fit either side of the tank that fold down or up one choice only that combined with the gun turned around and in the supplied travel lock this shows the tank in a narrower track I would think for rail transport. I am not sold on this yet in the baked on paint format. Trials indicated the diesel engine was superior to the gas-turbine one. Three brown sprues make up all the tracks you will need for this tank — I think there are some spare or at least it felt that way when I was making it! They fit tightly and with glue and pressure even tighter. Die Bewaffnung war für die Zeit der Entwicklung ungewöhnlich stark; es war eine stabilisierte 130-mm-Kanone vorgesehen. The next thing that goes together are the long range fuel tanks for the rear hull. I would damage these up a bit before the painting stage if you wanted to weather the tank properly! The goggles and mask fit into this suit nicely and the arms and legs just slip in no problems.

There are also the tow cable rings and several other smaller details on these two sprues. The weight per-square-foot of this heavy vehicle was equally spread out across the 4 track systems. These deficiencies included low nimbleness, efficiency loss during swampy area crossings, complex and expensive production, maintenance and repair, and impossibility of reduction in the overall height of the tank. Bojový prostor osádky konstruktéři důkladně izolovali od okolí a uvnitř působil přetlak — to vše proto, aby tank dokázal pracovat v podmínkách zamořeného bojiště — ať by šlo o radiaci, bojové plyny nebo biologickou hrozbu. Es war geplant, nur Reserveeinheiten des Oberkommandos mit diesem ungewöhnlichen Panzer auszustatten. Tools and the railings for the side of the hull are an easy fit on — as long as the holes are dug as per instructions! Due to lengthening of the hull's nose section, the driver's position was lower, with his optics attached to the roof of the hull, unlike in the T-64 and its derivatives. Different prototypes of Object 187 were built in three series.

SOVIET HEAVY TANK OBJECT 279, Takom 2001 (2013)

Nemohu vylouèit ani souvislost s vozidlem a protitankovým kanónem , který by dokázal jakýkoliv tehdejší tank roztrhnout jako plechovku od sardinek. Work on the welded turrets of Object 187, Object 188 T-90 and the future was carried out practically simultaneously. Planned primary armament of the tank though was the ballistically improved 125 mm 2A66 also known as D-91T gun. Similar projects, mainly for up-arming, existed in Western countries. The placement of the hull above the suspension allowed for a large fighting compartment, and as a result, increased ammunition and an improved autoloader mechanism for a high rate of fire. To znamenalo zvýšit ochranu osádky, což ovšem vyžadovalo zvláštní konstrukční řešení. It seems like it has all been done and sometimes done a few times by model makers.
