   The decision on the return of T-80 tanks and BMP-3 was made in 2015 - said the source of "Izvestia". - Now complete assessment of these machines was completed and a document with our offer was made. He referred that a working group gave papers to President of South Korea during his visit to Russia (Sept 3rd). Russia hopes not to buy, but to mutually beneficial for both countries bartering.

   According to the interlocutor of "Izvestia", combat vehicles, despite intensive operation in South Korea, they are in good condition and are quite suitable for return to duty, although some of them are likely to be dismantled for spare parts

      Hello, my friends and Kharkovites, take a sit and be ready for your brains to start to work - we are going to tell you a terrible secret of how to tell apart Soviet tanks that actually works like GLORIOUS T-80 and The Mighty T-72 from Kharkovites attempt to make a tank - the T-64. Many of capitalists Westerners have hard time understanding what tank is in front of them, even when they know smart words like "Kontakt-5" ERA. Ignoramus westerners!
         Because you are all were raised in several hundreds years old capitalism system all of you are blind consumer dummies, that need big noisy labels and shiny colorful things to be attached to product X to be sold to your ignorant heads and wallets, thats why we will need to start with basics. BASICS, DA? First - how to identify to which tank "family" particular MBT belongs to - to T-64 tree, or T-72 line, or Superior T-80 development project, vehicles that don't have big APPLE logo on them for you to understand what is in front of you. And how you can do it in your home without access to your local commie tank nerd? 
         Easy! Use this Putin approved guide "How to tell appart different families of Soviet and Russian tanks from each other using simple and easy to spot external features in 4 steps: a guide for ignorant western journalists and chairborn generals to not suck in their in-depth discussions on the Internet".
      Chapter 1: Where to look, what to see.
      T-64 - The Ugly Kharkovite tank that doesn't work 
         We will begin with T-64, a Kharkovite attempt to make a tank, which was so successful that Ural started to work on their replacement for T-64 known as T-72. Forget about different models of T-64, let's see what is similar between all of them.

      T-72 - the Mighty weapon of Workers and Peasants to smash westerners
         Unlike tank look-alike, made by Kharkovites mad mans, T-72 is true combat tank to fight with forces of evil like radical moderate barbarians and westerners. Thats why we need to learn how identify it from T-64 and you should remember it's frightening lines!

      The GLORIOUS T-80 - a Weapon to Destroy and Conquer bourgeois countries and shatter westerners army
         And now we are looking at the Pride of Party and Soviet army, a true tank to spearhead attacks on decadent westerners, a tank that will destroy countries by sucking their military budgets and dispersing their armies in vortex of air, left from high-speed charge by the GLORIOUS T-80!

      Hey guys. This is my first post in this forum.
      I want to find out sources for 2 information.
      Firstly, a friend of mine told me about the accuracy of T-80B tested in 1980s.
      T-80B      1000m   1500m     2000m
                      87%       66%       46%
      I asked him where he found this data. But he told me he forgot where he did find this since too much time passed from that moment.
      The Second one is about Russian ballistic computer's range-finding rate.
      One day, one of my friends who speaks russian quite well showed me a product info. of russian(maybe ukrainian) gunner's primary sight.
      It was written that range-finding rate of the sight after laser fired-off 0.3~3.0 seconds. 
      I totally forgot the address of that product brochure.
      I'd be very appreciated if you help me finding links of these information.
