Ukroboronprom shows upgraded T-64 tanks

Kharkiv Armored Plant, part of the state-owned Ukroboronprom concern, continues to strengthen the Ukrainian army with modernized T-64 tanks, the concern's press service has reported.

"Following a series of tests, the modernized T-64 of the 2017 model has been supplied to the Ukrainian Armed Forces since last year," the report says.

According to the report, over a hundred T-64s have currently been manufactured, which is enough for the rearmament of a tank brigade. At the same time, the Kharkiv-based enterprise continues to modernize the existing T-64s.

During the modernization, the combat vehicle is equipped with modern night-vision devices with third-generation image intensifiers. Thanks to high-quality components, they have high resistance to light disturbances and provide work in difficult conditions. They are not sensitive to flash, even when the enemy uses special impediments in the infrared range.

In addition, the modernized tank features a thermal imager that detects, recognizes and eliminates the enemy with a 125mm cannon at any time of the day and in all weather conditions.

According to the report, the 2017 T-64 also received a new dynamic protection that greatly enhances the level of defense of the combat vehicle and effectively counteracts all modern anti-tank means of defeat.

According to Ukroboronprom, in 2017, the tank took part in the NATO-led Strong Europe Tank Challenge and was shown during a parade on the occasion of Ukraine's Independence Day in 2018.
