    To reduce wear and tear. There is no point having the stabiliser turned on when you arent shooting. During march the tank stabilisers are always off and the barrel set to a locked off position pointing up and left for example.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Older versions used the analog circuitry, it can overheat in some conditions. Probably. If there is an uncorreced error or something. Strange for russian tech.
