Kurzbeschreibung

17. Februar 2009 New Vanguard (Buch 152)
The Soviet T-80 Standard Tank was the last tank fielded before the Soviet collapse, and the most controversial. Like the US M1 Abrams tank, the T-80 used a turbine power plant rather than a conventional diesel. Although the design was blessed with some of the most sophisticated armament, fire controls, and multi-layer armor ever fielded on a Soviet tank, its power plant remained a source of considerable trouble through its career. It saw very little service in the Chechen War, though T-80 tanks were used in some of the regional conflicts in the former Soviet Union in the 1990s.

Although the collapse of the Soviet Union might seem the end of the story, the T-80 lived on in Ukraine where one of its tank plants was based. A diesel powered version of the T-80 was developed, the T-84, which was successfully exported, including a major sale to Pakistan to counterbalance the Indian Army's Russian T-90 tanks. Steven J Zaloga charts the little-known history of the T-80, covering the initial construction, through the development to the subsequent variants, the T-84 and Russia's enigmatic "Black Eagle Tank." Accompanying detailed cut-away artwork illustrates the unusual design features that made the T-80 so controversial.

Pressestimmen

"The book is full of photos and illustrations, mostly in color, that again, will make this a much-used modeler’s book... If your interest includes modern Soviet/Russian armor, I highly recommend this book to you... This volume gives you a developmental history that is easy to read and understand, plus the many photos and illustrations chosen with the modeler in mind, make this a very valuable asset to every modelers library." -Howie Belkin, IPMS/USA

"Steven J Zaloga's T-80 Standard Tank: The Soviet Army's Last Armored Champion offers a narrowed focus for speciality military collections focusing on military equipment.

Synopsis

The Soviet T-80 Standard Tank was the last tank fielded before the Soviet collapse, and the most controversial. Despite having the most sophisticated fire controls and multi-layer armor ever fielded on a Soviet tank, its turbine power plant (rather than a conventional diesel) remained a source of considerable trouble throughout its career. Steven J Zaloga charts the little-known history of the T-80, covering the initial construction, through the development to the subsequent variants, the T-84 and Russia's enigmatic Black Eagle Tank. Accompanying detailed cut-away artwork illustrates the unusual design features that made the T-80 so controversial.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent development history of the T80 tank 20. Februar 2009
Von moviemusicbuff - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This book has an interesting title: The Soviet Army's Last Armored Champion. Actually, upon reading Steven Zaloga's description of the development of the T-80, a more fitting title would be: The Soviet Army's Overpriced and Troubled Tank.

Zaloga is able to explain clearly (in a mere 46 pages of text), the troubled development of the T80. In his intro, Zaloga sums it up: The T80 was the Soviet's answer to the M1 Abrams, British Challenger, and the German Leopard 2 tank. However, the T80 costs 3 times as much as the T72 (due to its usage of the powerful but gas thirsty turbine engine) yet is only marginally more effective than the T72B. Moreover, the T80 gained a bad reputation in its disastrous deployment by the Russian army during the 1994 assault on the Chechen capital of Grozniy. As Zaloga points out, 70% of the 200 tanks deployed by the Russians in the conflict were knocked out. (The Chechen soldiers, familiar with Soviet tanks, knew that the armor housing the engine was vulnerable to a well-placed rocket strike from above. The result would be a catastrophic explosion which would blow the turret off the tank.) In a different book on the T80, written by Mikhail Baryatinskiy, it was also revealed that the T80 did not have reactive armor during the assault, thus making it more vulnerable to rocket attacks.

As Zaloga points out, the fault of the T80's performance in the conflict lies with the poor training of the tank crew, the incompetent tactics, and the poor operational leadership of the senior Russian Army leadership. However, the T80 tank and its designers were blamed for the disastrous combat performance.

Some of the features of the armor which were supposed to protect the T80 didn't work as well as it was supposed to. The reactive armor (the Kontact) was not popular and only offered marginal protection from APFSDS rounds of modern Western MBTs (e.g. Abrams, Leopard). The unique active protection armor (the Drozd) which was supposed to protect the tank from active guided missiles, did not work that well either.

The troublesome turbine engine was replaced in later versions of the T80 with a gas-diesel engine (e.g. T80U). And finally, the T80 was not an export success. Ironically, the Ukrainian copy of the T80, the T84 was better built and was more successful in the export market than the original.

Zaloga again does a masterful and comprehensive job of describing the development history and the performance of the T80 in 46 pages. The colored plates by Tony Bryan were very good, but on other volumes by Zaloga, the colored plates by Jim Laurier looked even better. I felt that Zaloga could have written more on the Black Eagle and the T90 tank, but he was constrained by the 48 page limitation.

If you're willing to pay a little more, I would highly recommend you purchase the Russian Armor Vol. 3 series of the Main Battle Tank T80 by Mikhail Baryatinskiy, which I also own. Baryatinskiy's volume is thicker (81 pages) and offers excellent colored photos of the T80. It also describes the Black Eagle in fuller detail.

Zaloga's treatment of the T80 does not disappoint; it offers a brief yet comprehensive treatment of an important Soviet AFV. I highly recommend it for tank buffs and military history enthusiasts.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great for Either Specialists or General Military Readers 3. März 2009
Von R. A Forczyk - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Renowned armor expert Stephen J Zaloga has done many books for Osprey on various Soviet tanks, but his latest volume on the T-80 is one of the most interesting and attractive to date. This volume is packed with interesting data on a main battle tank that is still in service in large numbers both in Russia and several other countries (Pakistan, Cyprus, South Korea). Most of the photos in the volume are also in color and comprise a broad selection, ranging from training grounds to photos of ammunition and internal components. From the first page to the last, I found this a superb technical description that described how the T-80 was initially developed by the Soviet Union and how it has gradually evolved in Russian service.

The volume begins with a succinct but excellent discussion on the origins of the T-80, which lay with the T-64 and T-64A tanks in 1963-1968. It was with these tanks that the Soviet Army moved to the 125-mm gun and introduced the use of tube-launched wire-guided missiles in 1976. Zaloga also discussions the concurrent development of the low-cost T-72 tank as a cheaper alternative to the T-64. The author then discusses the Soviets' requirement for a follow-on to replace the T-64 and T-72 in the 1980s, which eventually resulted in the T-80 design. Along the way, Soviet tank designers became enamored of turbine engines and pushed this open the original T-80 design, which was produced in limited numbers in 1976-1978. Unfortunately, the turbine engine proved extremely unreliable and expensive in service, forcing a shift to the T-80B with a diesel engine.

The author then shifts into a more in-depth discussion of the T-80B, which became the standard Soviet tank in the early 1980s. The author provides two great photos of the Kobra missile, as well as the gunner's reticule and a close-up of the explosive reactive armor (ERA) box. This is followed by a good section on the T-80U, which reverted to a diesel engine, replaced the Kobra missile with the Refleks missile and added improved reactive armor. Photos include interior gunner's station, commander's station, the Shtora jamming system and ammunition. The author does discuss combat use of the T-80 in Chechnya and in the 1991 coup a bit, although this is not a main focus of the volume. The final section is more diversified and covers efforts to modernize the T-80 since the collapse of the Soviet Union, including the Ukrainian T-84 variant and the unfounded Black Eagle prototype. Graphically, the volume has six color plates: a T-80B from the Leningrad Military District, 1989; a 2-page cutaway of a T-80BV from the GSFG in 1989; a T-80UD from the 4GTD in 1993; a Cypriot T-80UK, a Pakistani T-80UD; and a T-80U in the 4GTD in 2006. All in all, this volume was informative and quite useful for the armor specialist or general military reader.

Steven J. Zaloga's T-80 STANDARD TANK: THE SOVIET ARMY'S LAST ARMORED CHAMPION offers a narrowed focus for specialty military collections focusing on military equipment. The T-80 was the last tank fielded before the collapse of the Soviet Union - and the most controversial. Its history is revealed with photos and discussion.
