    well come on that one's obvious. I mean Patrick Swayze' hair do could kill from 1000 yards away and keep in mind that they could have called in Chuck Norris. Seriously though, I think the reason the Warsaw Treaty Organization forces never went on the offensive is because even though, depending on who you listen to, the Russians had plans to launch a mass offensive across the north European plain that may or may not have involved first strike nuclear weapons they knew that this would probably result in apocalyptic scale destruction of Russian cities and towns and it would look just downright awful, as far as PR goes, to launch an aggressive war.

    This coincidently is why Reagan never carried through on his threat -at least on a turned off microphone- to nuke the Soviet Union. I think the balance of power were fairly equal and the colossal bloodshed that would ensue in a war involving the forces in Europe would have been so unimaginable that neither side wanted to risk it. I mean sure, the forces were there to do the job, but when it came to **** measuring and sabre rattling both East and West (especially USSR and USA) knew it would be best to fight wars by proxy in the third world. So the Soviets went to Afghanistan and we gave guerillas there small arms, money, and intell. We went to Viet-Nam and the Russians gave them weapons, intell, and money. You saw this all across Sub Saharan Africa and Central America as well. Wars here could still be bloody, but not enough blood could be spilled to justify one side nuking another. I mean I could not imagine Reagan nuking Russia over Afghanistan and I could not imagine Brezhnev nuking the United States over its involvement in say Vietnam.

    And is this interior the same as on the couple of hundred T-80Us left in service?

    oh and is UD even around anymore in Russia, I thought only a few dozen remained.
    It's a display commonly found in Cyprus T-80UK. I highly doubt that every T-80U left in service in Russian army, but last year's photographs of Ivanov's visit to Omsk showed some T-80U turrets inside a facility. Given that Omsk has not made a new T-80 since 90's that lives room for either overhaul or upgrade options. Whether they were intended for domestic use or export deal is unknown.

    Thanks. Too bad, the most interesting thing(s) is covered by main gun barrel.

    That thing should look very organic when next to a wheeled locomotive engine:
