    No way there are 500 of them. I don't think there are even 500 T-90s of all kinds in Russian army. Will be within a few years, but not now.

    He told that it would be easier to put a HE round in that direction, as one needs to know how to snipe, and that it's the first time he sees a person being fired at instead of usual carbooard target, and that he fell really slow, like in the movies.

    You should check this site - www.warfare.ru
    For example, according to it, the overall number of T-90 of various models in service in Russian Federation is less than 300, 279 to be exact.

    More wheels = less ground pressure and a longer tank = more space

    The TR-125 never passed prototype stage. Acording to wikipedia 3-5 prototypes were made.

    warfare.ru is good, but I think that the numbers arent that accurate. For one, they haven't been updated in the last few years, and I know for a fact new T-90s have been built in that time. I think also they report CFE numbers unless I'm mistaken, so they dont take into account anything East of the Urals.

    The reason the Black Eagle got a longer chassis with an extra wheel was so the frontal hull armour could be more steeply angled to provide more protection.

    So, I think site was updated not so long ago, if they mention 2009, and they list armed forces to the East of Ural mountains..

    Of course, as I already stated, I'm not sure about it.
    Ive followed the Warfare.ru site for a number of years now, and as far as I know (I could be wrong) I have not seen the T-90 number increase during the years when I know for a fact the RuMoD made purchases of new tanks.

    "I decided to create one official thread where I will post all the Russian related photos."
    Russian related - and TR-85 is a modification of T-55.
    And I agree with you about Black Eagle, but was no point to quote me for that - it was irrelevent.
