  1. Maybe in some conception they were, but this was not comparable level of study as 1990-1991 Morozov's project (and not 490B) http://btvt.info/2futureprojects/490_21vek.htm They (the US 1968 project) just made a brief essay with only basic rudimentary study. For example the same - Questionmark III.
  2. On November 27, 1984, the MBT T-80U tank was officially accepted for service in Soviet army by order № 1184-301 of Central committee of Communist party of USSR and council of ministers. http://btvt.info/1inservice/t-80u.htm Also this day by the order № №П83-300сс of Central committee of Communist party of USSR and council of ministers T-72B was officially accepted for service in Soviet army. http://btvt.info/1inservice/t-72B.htm
  3. about the “Oplot”, I think this is a “triumph” of the T-64 series ... and its followers. But this is not a 21st century tank. Morozov’s followers on both sides of the border sawn the old concept, time showed how far ahead of time it was. But sometimes it is worth stopping and thinking about something new (I’m not talking about Armata and not even about T-95).
