    Dragoon is for export, BMP-3 with Baikal turret is probably upgrade package for our Army and for export (maybe). BMP-3 with normal turret have better firepower and selection of weapons.

    I am not sure if this was posted before, but this is said to be a new Ukrainian IFV based on the T-64 chassis:
     

     
    There was also a picture of it being produced in factory, but I lost it
     
     
     
    Yes, they got them in July 15 2015 if I am not wrong. Kharkov refurbished old T-80Bs and applied Kontakt-1 ERA on them.

    Would a T-90S Russian manual be worthy of being posted here?
     
    I also have Challenger 1 manual. And M1A1/M1A2 TUSK 2 manual if you want. I am also looking hard for The -10 (M1 technical manual), but my efforts are fruitless so far.

    "Future MRAP discovered to be immune to even the advanced, most powerful proposed future 152mm Russian tank munitions after crewman are discovered to be able to projectile vomit with enough sheer erosive and corrosive force to disintegrate a round mid flight, requires only looking in the mirrors of the vehicle to remind them exactly what they're riding in."
     
    It's a bold strategy when you think of it, make a vehicle so goddamned hideous enemy fire doesn't even want to hit it, let alone can hit it.

    BM "Oplot"
     

     

    Ukrainian designers managed to make biggest panoramic sight i ever saw - overall weight of it is reaching 500 kg.
     
     
           Oplot-M, or BM "Oplot" after addoption to service in Ukrainian army, is Ukrainian MBT based on another Ukrainian MBT - T-84 "Oplot", which is Soviet-designed T-80UD with some modifications. BM Oplot was designed by Morozov Kharkiv Machine Building Design Bureau and produced by Malyshev factory. Chief designer of BM Oplot - Mikhail Dem'yanovich Borisuk (he was born in 1934, BTW).
     
     
           It have several features, separating it from T-80UD, T-90A and T-84. Engine is new 6 cylinder 6TD-2E 1200 HP diesel with lowered smokiness and exhaust toxicity (wich is a problem for Kharkov engines) in new engine-transmission compartment (which is 2 part - lower is for engine itself and upper part is for big airfilters, which are needed because of how much air 6TD "eats"), new sort-of automatical transmission. Tank is equipped with new navigation systems, FCS, panoramic sight for commander with day and night (thermal imager) capabilities, new remotely controlled KT-12.7 12.7 mm HMG for commander, new gunner sights, which bring it to modern level of how tank should be equipped. A lot of that equipment is made not in Ukraine.
     
     
    From the side BM Oplot looks different from Soviet T-64-like MBTs.
     
          Main gun is not really different from 2A46 125 mm guns of T-72/ T-80/T-90 series of tanks, 125 mm KBA-3 L48 gun with autoloader for 28 shots (46 in total is carried). Main gun can fire HE, HEAT, APFSDS, GL-ATGMs (Ukrainian "Kombat" missiles). AFAIK part of ammunition is carried outside of the tank, in turret "basket", mounted to the rear part of it. Nothing really fancy here, 5 km range with ATGMs, up to 2.5-2.8 km effective range with APFSDS, which is standart for late Soviet and current Russian MBTs like T-72B3, T-80UE and different models of the T-90. 
     
         Vehicle is also equipped with Ukrainian version/local variant of Shtora system - "Varta", with additional laser-warning sensors on the turret sides. 

     
     
         BM-Oplot use somewhat unusual type of ERA (which is most interesting feature of that tank) - ~layered ERA named "Duplet". It is rumored that it can defeat tandem HEAT warheads like PG-7VR and PG-29V. Vehicle sides are also covered by Duplet ERA. 
     


          Note that the hull UFP is covered by differently shaped blocks of ERA (long and narrow). How much it is effective is unknown, but designers claim that it can defeat tandem HEAT warheads, EFP and APFSDS projectiles.  
     
    Upper frontal hull armor layout:
     
    Side ERA modules:
     
          Overall, BM Oplot is tank with better perfomance than T-80UD thanks to improvements in electronics and FCS, engine, transmission, driver controls, new ERA and better side armor, and in some areas this vehicle can be superioir to T-72B3 (latest Russian serial produced modification of the T-72 MBT, although it wasn't best proposed modification for it).
          But..., there is always "but" -  it is vehicle that Ukraine can not produce in any serious numbers, as their one and only contract with Thai army showed - out of 95 BM Oplot ordered in 2011 only 5-6 were delivered to this day. During trials in Thailand Kombat GL-ATGMs also showed not very good results - AFAIK out of 5 test firings, 2 missiles exploded before reaching targets. Another interesting fact about that tank is that no BM Oplot MBTs are presented on battlefields of Eastern Ukraine - T-64 and T-72s are primary tanks of the VSU. Seems to me Ukraine is either can't service them, or simply can't produce them in a first place.

    Welcome to SH, Mohamed A! This camo is UVZ "PR" camouflage, which can be called glamouflage. It is there to attract clients and to make vehicles look different, helps to be noticeable in PR material (camo is unique for Russian AFV).
