The author of the material, Dmitry Lemeshko, recalls that the agency’s earlier publication on this topic caused a strong reaction from various Ukrainian experts and observers. They tried to prove that they were completely different machines, and that the creation of Ukroboronprom was superior to the Uralvagonzavod technique.
But now it is possible to sum up the intermediate result: the Russian Terminator is in service with the army of Kazakhstan, it successfully passed tests in Syria, took part in large-scale exercises “West-2017”, where it “fought” along with our other novelties - T-90M and T-80BVM, and, finally, the Ministry of Defense decided to adopt it.
And what about the "Guardian"? The Ukrainian car - “this is just a mock-up, hastily made to participate in the exhibition,” the author states.
“It is possible that tank, on which they placed the "Duplet", immediately after the exhibition they returned the full-time tower and already sent to the zone of the so-called ATO. Well, while the combat module, while waiting for the next exhibition, is still at the manufacturing plant, ”concludes Lemeshko.
