A source in the Thai army said the publication " Kanwa the Asian Defence " that tests Ukrainian tank "OPLOT" in Thailand during the rainy season showed limited life battery that needs to be changed frequently.

The article « China, Ukraine Competing fiercely for Pakistani market The MBT » notes that according to the Thai people, the Ukrainian side is trying to provide a high level of service. Ukrainian experts in the field of tank told the newspaper that because of the difference in climate battery "Oplot" experienced increased workload and very quickly covered with condensation, and this was causing problems.

At the same time the very battery replacement is carried out very quickly. According to the publication, the battery is done in Lugansk (probably talking about CJSC "Lugansk battery"), but the company itself has been damaged in the fighting.

  1. For sure the RTA did not check if the Oplot's were designed to be used in hot and humid countries like Thailand (tropicalized), if they did, not in a long duration to find out its weaknesses in such an environment. It is just a basic rule in any machine the hotter it gets the less efficient the machine will be and that goes the same with batteries and electronic stuff inside a tank. The only logical remedy to this is the RTA should find a reputable Military Battery Manufacturer aside from the original - Lugansk battery to suggest a alternative one that could be used that are tropicalized.
