    And the tank on the picture is a T-72
    I remember reading that the T-72 had 7 wheels while the T-80 and T-90 had 6.

    T-80 and T-64 have smallish wheels with gaps in between, T-72 and T-90 have large wheels with almost no gap between them. Thats the easiest way to tell them apart. The tank in the pic is def a T-72 since it has K-1 reactive armour, T-90 has K-5.

    T-62 and T-55 had 5 road wheels, everything after had 6. The latest Black Eagle prototype was based on a lengthened T-80 chassis wit h7 road wheels, maybe thats what youre thinking of?

    Also the TR-125, the Romanian version of the T-72 had 7 roadwheels (they did seem to have a penchant for increasing the number of roadwheels, as their T-55, the TR-85 had 6).

    Just some news that I think has been missed:
    http://arms-tass.su/?page=article&aid=69062&cid=44

    It was announced on April 7th that this year at Sevmash 2 new nuclear submarines will be laid down, a Borei class and a Yasen class. That will make it 4 Boreis under construction (if you count the Dolgorukiy) and 2 Yasen class under construction at the same time at Sevmash.

    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
