   One of Oplot's camo was this, "painter's" tape. According to claims, they had to use it because tree branch ruined paintjob. 

 

   T-64BM2 (updated Bulat)

T-72MP (for export, from late 90s) with 6TD-1 engine.

 

   T-72MP was joint French-Czech-Ukrainian project of T-72 modernisation, offered for export. First time it was shown in 1997 in Czech republic. Ukrainian ERA and engine, French optics and Czech company Bohemia was to put all that together.

   Equipped with SAVAN 15MP sight by SAGEM and the panoramic sight by another French company SFIM, 1000 hp engine, soft-kill APS Varta (Shtora, basically).

Russian troops about BTR-4

 

In short - crosscountry capabilities are not good. Lower clearance, frontally heavy as weight of engine, transmission, other parts of powertrain are located in forward part of the vehicle. Heavier weight combined with thinner tires also does not help. Vehicle damaged "wheel reducers" when moving on soft soil. Automatic transmission on slopes don't put proper gear. Sinks in mud because of weight and nose heaviness.
