  1. T-72B3 obr.2016 production ≈ 150 per year. 68th Tank Regiment 150th Motorized Rifle Division. 5th Tank Brigade. 1st Tank Regiment 2nd Motorized Rifle Division. 6th Tank Brigade. T-72B3M ≈ 20 in 2nd Motorized Rifle Division. T-80BVM* 10 (2017) 61st Naval Infantry Brigade. *Tanks for Naval Infantry don't have additional side armor.

There is only one company producing Izdelie 170-1(КТРВ) and "call for companies to submit proposals"(ended by 28.09.2015 10:00) just a part of bureaucratic procedure.
  3. Except it wasn't - The Russian Defense Budget and You. Izdelie 170/R-77/RVV-AE* (1994) and Izdelie 170-1/R-77-1/RVV-SD (2013) is two different things. *Not in VVS service. Dzemgi Air Base and new contracts disagree with you.
  4. Visual differences between T-64, T-72 and T-80 series of tanks.
  5. “The hardest thing of all is to find a black cat in a dark room, especially if there is no cat.” 42nd MRD is formed from 8th, 17th and 18th Motor Rifle Brigades and use T-72B3. "На полигоне Гвардеец экипажи танков Т-72Б3" TV Zvezda use “stock footage” to illustrate exercises when they don't have a correct one from this unit. In this case they used 4rd TD (only unit with T-80U) and 2nd MRD (T-90A).
