I wonder if this have some relation to what some former east German tankers reported, that in their T-72M/M1's, stabilization running longer than approx 1 hour would overheat and shut down, same with other T-72 versions?
I doubt, but it would be good to know from someone being Russian.

Yeah, but as far as I know, there can be switch off whole stabilization system, or only gun/turret stabilization, so sight is still stabilized for scanning. It would be just good to know how it looks in more modern Russian tanks.I cant imagine other tanks having their stabilisers turned on 100% of the time. Surely the M1, Leopart, Challenger, etc, also turn off the stabiliser when just doing a march.
