Ewww, that youtuber. He is not too terrible as some others, but still, pretty lame.

I only posted that for these view bits. He's more of a Wikipedia narrator (literally his only text).

They reduced the ERA coverage? 

They reduced ERA modules size. Tank on the video doesn't have full package installed.

It's true, it can. Don't know since when exactly, but it's visible in test footage, which is plentiful.

e.g at 1:14:

 

 

Interesting.  That definitely does look like an actual neutral steer.

Do all Oplot-M actually have this transmission?  Per another poster here, the Kharkov design bureau designed several gearboxes that could neutral steer, but never actually mass produced them:

GTD-1250 transmission on tanks in Russian inventory is not different from GTD-1000 transmission. At least not fundamentally, probably the ranges are slightly different, I'm not entirely sure about that. Again, I should strees it that transmission with hydrostatic steering was never produced - Russian military was not interested in it, and no foreign customers have been found.

Neutral steer is possible with BKP mechanically wise, but iirc control system does not have this option.

Oplot has pretty much the same transmission setup as T-64, but with external gearset for reverse, so that the vehicle can move backwards on any range.
There is also a bizzare version with hydrostatic steering, that doesn't have any links between BKPs other than engine's crankshaft. It has two IVTs each paralleled to the mechanical part of respective BKP so that reduction can be made continuously without shifting down. But it is forever in development and was never produced. No schematics available.

Oplot number 21 to 25 arrived to Thailand. Now Thailand have 25 of Oplots - enough to conquer Galaxies!

Comrades posted that on otvaga, so i repost it here.

 

Looks like Oplot use same type of inserts in turret armor as T-80U (plates with cavities filled with something).

Worst Korean plackard about T-80U

Here is a pic of book that says that plates are steel plates with cavities by Met749, Also shows turret frontal armor dimensions.
