The actual number of T-84 Oplot tanks produced per year is 10 units, Bobovnikov said.

As tankers told later, the barrels of tank guns vibrated, the fire control system did not work, the automatic loader was switched off. Because of these problems, the crews could not shoot all the ammunition, issued for the competition.
