Ukraine in 2019 should begin a deep modernization program for its T-64 main battle tanks, the core of the country’s tank fleet, director of Defense Express consulting company Serhiy Zgurets declared.
“My opinion is that we need to increase the efficiency of tanks that are already on the battlefield in sufficient numbers. In 2019, we have to start a deep modernization program for T-64 MBTs that form the core of our tank fleet,” he said.
According to the expert, among other things, it is necessary to ensure the tank’s ability to engage the enemy at night, equip the machine with a reliable protection system, and install a more modern engine. (UNIAN/Business World Magazine)
