A Soviet prototype?
A German prototype?

... The only problem I have at the moment is BMPs have a metal overhang that covers the track at the top. In this picture it looks like you can see the track and there is nothing covering it. This leaves me with doubts whether or not it is a BMP even though I will admit it is strikingly similar. Will have to look into it further before I can say for sure.

I say it does not matter if it is a UFO, and it doesn't matter what kind of tank it is. This is because I believe it is a fake. Quite sure of it. Peace.

Not a BMP M1976 (our turret is too far forward)
I don't think it's a BMP-2 because there is a rocket launcher on the turret which would obscure the spotlight.
I think it's a BMP-1
because there is a spot light atop the turret and this is visible in the UFO picture and is shown here in this pic.
The Spot light is inline with the leading edge of the third wheel from the rear.
So the BMP-1 was started around 1966 which if nothing else rules out WWII, one then has to ask why the grainy sepia tone WWII type photo?
Being post 1966 this also allows it to be a satelitte (or other) dish.
Also look to the left of the photo the "dish" appears to be broken and the BPM gun barrel could be visible behind coming out to the left edge of the photo.
If it's not totally fake I think it's a broken satellite dish.

However; Soviet camera technology was vastly behind western photography. If you look at Soviet video taken during Afgahnistan, it still looks like video filmed in the 60's. And Soviet Photos and film of their space program in the 50's, early 60's looks like US photos from WWII. So trying to date this by the grain or resolution, or color schemes of the photo is going to be very difficult.

Now then, Why if it crashed in the trees, did it not cut the trees down?
If it came down vertically so as not to cut trees then why is at an angle?
If it slumped over after falling vertically why is the earth not raised in front of the thing?
Why is there no gouging in the dirt on either edge of the disc?
