T-72BZ tank: modernization

T-72BZ tank: modernization

The motor is developed for installation on modernized and new serial T-72BZ tanks. The forced diesel engine V-92S2F for tanks developed at ChTZ-Uraltrak which is a part of Uralvagonzavod of the State Corporation Rostec has successfully passed all kinds of tests and received documentation for serial production.

This is the first tank engine in the last ten years specially created for installation on the modernized and new serial tanks T-72BZ with a capacity of 1130 hp. As a result of its application, the mobility and operational characteristics of combat vehicles increased significantly, and the specific capacity of T-72B3 tank surpassed the specific capacity of the best Western models.

Despite the deep modernization, the V-92S2F is maximally unified with the predecessor - the diesel engine V-92S2: it is made in the same dimensions and is installed in the engine compartment of the tank without any modifications to the machine, which makes it possible to replace V-92C2 with V-92S2F without changes in the technological process. The motor is produced on the standard equipment. V-92S2F was first introduced during the Tank Biathlon international army games. The Russian team became the winner in these competitions for several years in a row and the motor was unofficially nicknamed sporty. Assignment of the O1 letter means its acceptance into the arsenal of the Ministry of Defense.

Uralvagonzavod is a diversified machine building complex that produces about 100 types of products, in particular, military equipment, road construction machines, all-metal open wagons, specialized wagons and railway tanks. The enterprise is the developer of the main Russian combat T-90 tank, as well as the newest Russian Armata T-14 tank.
