I do not know if it was posted before. Short, but quite interesting video about 1G42. Interesting to see the automatic lead calculation working:

 

I really don't understand this, especially that rapid left turret rotation. Could somebody guide me through, please?

I always thought that you just keep the chevron on the targer, lase and wait for the green light to flash and then fire.

Look at the movement of the gun barrel. When the gunner traverses the turret (actually, he controls the sight), the barrel seems to move too much towards the direction of the rotation. This is because the sight calculates the lead based on the range and selected ammo.

   Restoration of T-72M1 tanks in Iraq.

   At the location of the 9th armored division of the Iraqi army, work is underway to restore Soviet-made armored vehicles. The Iraqi Defense Ministry's military television studio published a report on the repair of T-72M1 tanks. The brigade is also armed with Russian-made T-90S/SK tanks.
