Armor Main Battle Tanks Tanks represent the main striking force of an army. Tanks form the backbone of the armored force and their main mission is to create and exploit breakthroughs, defend against enemy armored forces, destroy other tanks, armored vehicles and artillery. Despite their usefulness being called into question on the battlefields of the twenty first century, tanks have been used extensively and effectively both in conventional and unconventional conflicts in the past 20 years.
The invasion of Iraq Operation Iraqi Freedom was spearheaded by a tank onslaught that led to the capture of Baghdad. In Ukraine intanks played a crucial role in the fighting in Donbass between Ukrainian forces on one hand and Russian armed forces and rebels, on the other hand.
Romania, however, cannot afford such Dating Agen? ie Falcon. option due to an unstable and unpredictable neighborhood. Furthermore, Belgium and the Netherlands may rely on larger and military more powerful neighbors such as France and Germany as a geopolitical glacis. At present, the Romanian Land Forces operate a plethora of Soviet built and locally manufactured Dating Dating Agen?

Only 56 TRM1 have been produced between and and only one tank battalion is equipped with them. The original Ts have been Dating Agen? ie Falcon. to TAM2 standard and two tank battalions are equipped with this model. Romania has also used the T Ural main battle tank but only 30 have been acquired in from the Soviet Union by the communist regime. The TR prototypes did not receive type certification by the Defense Ministry and soon afterwith the Cold War over, the program was cancelled.
After the fall of communism and the end of the Cold War tank development work in Romania concentrated on upgrading the existing stocks of TRs. Inthe Defense Ministry issued a request for information regarding the potential acquisition of main battle tanks. In Octoberthen defense minister Mihai Fifor announced that Romania is interested in acquiring new tanks, however, he did not offer any other details regarding the program.
It was argued that, compared with the current inventory of tanks, a foreign made vehicle would cost too much to maintain over its entire life cycle. This attitude was partly driven by hopes of reviving Dating Agen? ie Falcon. production in Romania.

The RFI did not specify if Romania was interested in newly built vehicles or used ones. In the medium and long term, the Romanian government should also try to join the French and German led efforts to create a European tank — Main Ground Combat System.
It appears that the Defense Ministry settled on a phased Dating Agen? ie Falcon. regarding the main battle tank program. This program will be initiated in the period. Two programs are being developed for the acquisition and manufacturing of armored personnel carriers. According to former defense minister Mihai Fifor, by the end of earlythe first 36 vehicles should have been delivered,  but the program may be facing delays due to troubles with the UT Mk 2 turrets.
Elbit, the manufacturer of the turrets, explained that the late delivery of 30 mm Mk 44 Bushmaster cannons by its U. The decision of the Romanian government to modernize UMB indicates that in the future the factory may be involved in the production of heavier armored fighting vehicles.
Starting withRomania is set to acquire and produce a second type of wheeled APC called Agilis. Originally, inthe Romanian government selected Rheinmettal Defence as the international partner in the program.
The answer to this question depends on four variables: standardization, Dating Agen? ie Falcon., availability and economics. Only inall 31 vehicles were delivered  and another 12 derivatives were contracted.
Interoperability with the American forces deployed in Romania was therefore a must for any future acquisition. Since when Romania acquired the first Piranha APCs, the technical requirements and performance of wheeled APCs had increased and vehicles with Dating Agen? ie Falcon. Agen? ie Falcon. protection, mobility and firepower have been developed. Most modern wheeled APCs have the same degree of protection and firepower as infantry fighting vehicles.
Furthermore, it partly draws inspiration from western 8×8 APCs, which the Russian armed forces got the opportunity to test before the onset of the Ukrainian crisis.
The Piranha V is better protected than the American Stryker vehicles while sporting the same armament and mobility. Furthermore, in keeping with current armored vehicles trends, it comes equipped with the Orbital ATK Mk. This type of cannon equips the latest variant of Stryker APC, the Stryker Dragoon, although in an improved variant, the XM that Dating Agen? ie Falcon. a slightly longer barrel than the standard Mk.
Although the Romanian Land forces have opted not to equip the Piranha V with anti-tank missiles, its turret is capable of mounting a twin launcher for Spike LR anti-tank guided missiles which are currently in service with the Romanian Army. Here is where the Agilis project fits in, as this vehicle is planned to have an amphibious capability.
Furthermore, the Agilis program aims to develop a 4×4 variant of this APC which will be used for reconnaissance. The other reason has to do with maintaining an industrial capacity to design and produce wheeled APCs in Romania. Nevertheless, Agilis and Piranha V will not share any components, even if they are Dating Agen? ie Falcon. locally. The engine, driveline, armor and the weapons are going to be different. This will raise serious logistical issues in the future when both vehicles will be in Dating Agen?

ie Falcon., unless a very well thought out logistical system is put in place. Romanian planners are aware of the risk involved in this approach and, defense minister Gabriel Leș has indicated that the Agilis program may be the subject of a tender, casting doubt over the partnership with Rheinmetall.
The two projects involve two different factories which have produced in the past armored vehicles. In both cases the government is looking to integrate as much of the production as it is possible locally in order to revive the Romanian arms industry.
For example, the Israeli company Elbit has opened a production facility in Măgurele near Bucharest which will manufacture and assemble turrets for Piranha V vehicles.
Around of these vehicles have been modernized in the early s with NATO compatible systems: 25 mm automatic cannons, Spike LR anti-tank guided missiles, modern night vision equipment, a new engine as well as Caut divorțate fete din București communications systems.
Initially 4 battalions or vehicles were planned to be modernized but only 3 battalions Dating Agen? ie Falcon. been Dating Agen? ie Falcon. to the MLIM Jder standard. The decision to further upgrade 48 vehicles underscores the shift in mindset from expeditionary missions to territorial defense for the Romanian armed forces.
Никогда в жизни Олвин не видел такой воды. По сравнению с этим озером самые обширные бассейны Диаспара выглядели не более чем лужами.
However, this program raises a number of questions. Should Dating Agen? ie Falcon. do away with tracked infantry fighting vehicles and rely exclusively on wheeled vehicles? Nevertheless, it must be said that this is not a general trend. Second, the first upgrade program for the MLIM did not include increased protection for the crew and the infantry squad it carries. The MLIM shares the same drawbacks as the original BMP-1 vehicle: vulnerability to mines, increased risk of fire in the troop compartment and a rather small troop compartment.
It seems that the new upgrade program will address some of these deficiencies: better protection, enhanced mobility by integration of an automatic transmission, enhanced night vision equipment and upgraded electronic early warning systems.
There has been some research and development work done for the manufacturing of this vehicle, but it has yet to leave the design board. The vehicles were supposed to provide mobility for the anti-tank teams of mechanized infantry units. However, the tender was cancelled in amid corruption allegations and it has yet to be relaunched.
Unfortunately, the Romanian Land Forces suffer greatly in this respect as most Dating Agen? ie Falcon. its current inventory of vehicles is quite old, while the new vehicles are few and have not been standardized. Different variants of U. Moreover, Dacia Duster 4×4 vehicles are increasingly replacing old ARO vehicles in auxiliary roles that do not involve front line service.
If the tender for 4×4 armored vehicles is relaunched, its aim should not only be to give mobility to infantry anti-tank teams, but also to standardize as much as possible the current inventory of 4×4 vehicles. Rather than buy a vehicle type for a specific operational requirement, the Romanian Land Forces should concentrate on acquiring a family of vehicles. Moreover, the production of the vehicles should be locally integrated as much as possible.
Artillery At present, the artillery of the Romanian Land Forces suffers from three major drawbacks.

First, the reliance on Warsaw Pact calibers: mm, mm and mm. Third, and the most serious issue facing the Romanian Land Forces, is the lack of an industrial capacity to produce tube artillery. Arsenal Reșița, the state owned company which produced artillery pieces for the Romanian armed forces, has been closed since Aside from these issues the experience of the Russian-Ukrainian war must be considered and internalized.
The acquisition has been made without a tender, through the Foreign Military Sales program of the U. When the HIMARS systems will be deployed and become operational aroundRomania will have regained a limited tactical ballistic missile capability.
However, the Defense Ministry budget planning indicated that an acquisition program should begin in the near term, between and If this is the case, then Romania will regain part of its artillery building capacity. Rheinmetall Defence has expressed interest in acquiring Arsenal Reșița but the deal has yet Dating Agen? ie Falcon. be approved by the government.
First is the question of munitions. Small Arms As in the case of artillery systems, the Romanian armed forces still predominantly employ small arms in Warsaw Pact calibers. The weapon is based on the AK platform and comes in 5.
Unfortunately, the new rifle is still in prototype stage and awaits type certification after 8 years since the program has been initiated. No program for NATO caliber light or medium machineguns or designated marksman rifles has been initiated by the Defense Ministry.
Due to the protracted development process of the new assault rifle, Romanian officials have Dating Agen? ie Falcon. out to foreign companies. It seems that rather than producing a new rifle, license manufacturing of an existing design to Romanian specifications is sought after.
Small batches of these assault rifles have been tested by elements of the Romanian armed forces. In Septemberan agreement between Uzina Mecanică Plopeni and Beretta was approved for the creation of a joint venture which will produce small arms.
The United States would like to field a new assault rifle in Normally this would not represent a great development, however, the new rifle will be chambered for a 6. Rather than go ahead and adopt a 5.
Instead, as a stop-gap measure, it should modernize its existing stock of assault rifles with Dating Agen? ie Falcon. aiming devices and Picatinny rails and re-chamber its PK machineguns in 7.
Furthermore, the current designated marksman rifle, the PSL, should be replaced with a new rifle chambered in 7.
Finally, if the U. This seems the best course in terms of both costs and technology. Although rifles today have a modular design, which allows using different calibers on the same platform, munition manufacturing lines are not so easily adaptive. This acquisition program is likely to have a positive impact on the local auto industry as most of these trucks will be built locally.
