Ukrainian T-84 Oplot analysis page

Tanknut Dave has a very good page on the T-84 Oplot, a term I now understand to mean "bulwark." This page goes into tremendous, glorious grog detail (manufacturer's sheet?) on the tank, to include the thermal sights (don't understand the magnification stuff at all; makes no sense--NFOV is 1/3 mag of WFOV), other visionics, signature reduction measures of which I knew effectively nothing, even how many grenades and AKS cartridges are carried. Part of this page is a mini tutorial on the nits and grits of the ammo carousel and its specific operating parameters. There is a full discussion of the CM suite on the tank, too, including the duration of the aerosol screen once deployed. Don't plan on staying long. Lasts all of a minute. The ballistic protection section seems impressive, but it's much easier to claim the ability to survive various threats and something else altogether to actually deliver on the claims. Vid of an Oplot on the Poligon is pretty cool. Amazing how little can be seen of it when running through the brush.
