Thats a pretty interesting tank nice low profile on the turret. Is there any info or stats to go along with that tank or just the pic.

135mm thats a big gun for a tank

It has an unmanned turret (which is a big plus and should be also on western tanks, I think). But I highly doubt it is already operational.

I thought the BE was a Russian/SKorean tank design for the South Korean Army. Not a new indigenous Russian replacement tank.

Crew of three? Just looking at that photo (the first I had seen before I looks it up online) I was wondering if the commander was reclining or lying flat! A link I found states that it might eventually have a 152mm (!) main gun.

the BE is a HEAVY modernization of the T-80u tank

This tank is not made for the Russian Army, but for export to South Korea I believe. The one that is made for our army is a T-95 (can't remember the Obekt name) with a 152mm gun and an unmanned turret.

how do you know this?
, since BE is a modernization of t-80u it will be cheaper to just upgrade all the t80s

this tank is being developed in cooperation with and for export to S.Korea and may even feature Korean thermal imagers. It will not be fielded with the Russian Army and seems to be entirely an initiative of Omsk Plant. It originates from the now-closed Nikolai Popov's design bureau at Leningrad Kirov Plant (LKZ) and is now developed by Alexander Morozov. The tank is built on a T-80U chassis and will borrow most of its components including FCS from T-80U. The most significant difference between the new tank and T-80 is the completely redesigned turret (at Omsk'97 a full-sized mock-up was presented). This new turret will have a larger degree of protection than the current Russian MBTs. The steep slope of forward armor plates on the turret reflects designers' desire to maximize protection from APFSDS rounds in a duel situation, when tanks fight "face to face". For additional protection, the tank is fitted with Kaktus ERA and the new Drozd-2 APS......


......It was originally planned to install a 152 mm gun that is being developed for a future Russian MBT. However, since this tank is not going to be fielded with the Russian Army, it will carry a 125 mm 2A46-series gun. Another innovation is a new automated ammo storage/loader, located in a turret bustle

Cool in that 3-D Rendering it looks like the turret machine gun is automated. Is that how it works in this tank since there is noone in the turret that would be cool and is the future of all mounted guns IMO with a manual backup.

Hocico I dont agree with that post about the A-10 but it is another point of view. These threads would be quite boring without other peoples views.
