Sorry, I’ve made a mistake - bad people misled. It turned out that in fact he was turned into a BMPT-72. The second prototype is constantly disappearing at various exhibitions, not complete and thoroughly ushatana. If you look at the latest press and the Internet, then you can read a lot of different proposals on the topic of possible candidates for "biathlon". But ... I am extremely interested in why our serial T-90A is always missing from them? You would think that an illiterate audience simply stipulates this beautiful car, if again not one BUT ... T-90A was planned to participate in last year's competitions. The network has photos of these cars, painted in the colors of participating teams. But these Tanks at the biathlon did not even appear in the show program. Why? Is it because our military knows more about them than we can say?
"Colored" T-90A, prepared for the biathlon -2013, but not involved in it either.
Did the 30-year-old T-72B be considered better and more reliable ??? Everything turns out that way ... So what are we going to exhibit? Then I give absolutely unverified information based solely on rumors that passed through the “subchannels”, but nonetheless I paid attention to them.
The first hearing. UKBTM and "Tagil platform" "Uralvagonzavod" received an urgent task to roll out a small series of upgraded, specially prepared for the competition of the type T-72. This is the so-called T-72B4. Modernization option in which the best practices are used on the Kalina LMS and the Proryv-2 ROC as a whole. The main difference from the T-72B3 is the commanding panorama. However, this machine also does not exist yet and it has not been tested.

The name "T-72B4" is only reserved for it and will be officially assigned after the GI, which is supposed to be held in 2014 in the summer and autumn. But here, there is one "legal stumbling block" - T-72B4 can be issued on a temporary CD, calling, for example, as T-72B3М. In this case, we will conditionally consider that the modernization of the B3 is being implemented with a number of “side events”, according to the customer’s TK. So T-72B4 - T-72B3M is the first challenger.

The second hearing. Allegedly, from Kantemirovka, 6 T-80UE-1 tanks with a Plissa sight were sent back to the Omsk site of the Uralvagonzavod. These machines were modernized more recently through the joint efforts of KBTM and 61-BTRZ.
T-80UE-1, but with a "Buran-M" sight, not a "Plissa"
Now they in Omsk should be in some special way prepared for biathlon. Some of the people with wide stripes, and then in the media, quite seriously believe that T-80U (UE) is really better than T-90A and T-72B3. However, we leave this assertion on their conscience.
I admit that our valiant military for safety purposes go these two ways at once. And nafuya? Yes, simply because we finished playing in the tanks ... and were left without them.
