    It is Shipunov's conception of "Ideal" weapon - so called "smart bullet", in reality a beam riding small missile with not CE, but high speed kinetic warhead (along the round). Designed for use by a single trooper or as add-on weapon for IFV and so on. http://btvt.info/3attackdefensemobility/rarn_shipunov.htm

    ERA is another product. Creation of a welded turret or at least new turret requires a large ammount of "base resourses". A scientific "school" on welding and armour materials, it is not possible just to appear from nothing. And for example it was 40 years passed from t-64 welded (http://btvt.info/3attackdefensemobility/turret_welded.htm) turret to t-84.
