M84 AB1 MAIN BATTLE TANK

Model M-84 AB1 represents the last - the actual variant of modern combat tank which development is based on the modification and modernization of the basic version M-84 i.e. M-84 AB.

The upgrade has improved a main tank performance parameters: fire power, protection and maneuverability, as well as has improved tank combatv readiness and reliability and gived a new features and performances regarding possibility for MBT integration in to modern network-centric battlefield

 Fire Control System

New fire control system enables rapid preparation for fire engagement, high accuracy in range measurement and high first round kill probability either in motion or standstill, both day and night.

The new FCS solution enables the commander to take the gunner’s role in case of emergency and to fire at selected targets.

Modernization includes:

- Integration of day/night sight featuring four operating channels (day, thermal, laser range finding channel and laser channel for missile guidance)

- Integration of laser rangefinder

- Installation of meteo sensors

Passive Intelligence Radar System

- Modern digital passive intelligence radar system which automatically detects, identifies and warns a crew of air or ground threats.

-Detects the azimuth and the operating modes of the radar radiation source, providing a warning about a surveillance radar, tracking radar, radar in a missile guidance system or similar.

-detects and identifies all types of scanning and non-scanning pulse radars (P), continuous-wave radars (CW), quasi-continuous-wave radars (ICW) and pulse Doppler radars (PD) at great distances and in complex radio frequency conditions.

Panoramic Surveillance and observation station

Used for surveillance, reconnaissance and day and night sighting as well as in low-visibility conditions

Main elements:

- Laser rangefinder

- WFoV CCd TV camera

- Narrow angle black-and –white TV camera

- Measuring accuracy, target distance: ± 5 m

- Measuring accuracy, angles: 1 mrad - 1.5 mrad

- Field of action in horizontal plane: n x 360 °

- Field of action in elevation: -10 to +70°

- Wide field of view, TV camera: 20 °

- Narrow field of view, TV camera: 3 °

- Wavelength, laser rangefinder: 1.064 microns

Battle Management System

- hardware and software system designed to significantly enhance situational awareness and provide commander support in mission planning and preparation, decision making, organization, report issuing, target acquisition and similar activities related to combat operations.

Basic elements:

- Tank display on situation map

- Mission planning support

- Tank positioning
