    Wheeled Pantsirs are selected for PVO VVS to work with S-400/S-300. Tracked Pantsirs will be for army units. Tor-M2 is for now, as I know, selected for army PVO-SV, what means it will be tracked. I don't know if PVO-VVS will also buy Tor-M2, where wheeled version will be more suited.

    I hope we will soon see pictures of them both from army units.

    maybe it's better in lighter Russian tanks or if you're braced for the impact but a friend of mine (Austrian Leopard 2 driver) told me about doing a involuntary small jump once and it almost knocked the **** out of the crew - he felt it for a couple of days...

    I can tell you exactly how it feels.
    My dumb driver had made it possible for the Merkava 4 to jump in the air couple months ago, it was a little jump, not too fancy like this one, but i felt like the earth is falling beneath me, we felt like we had no gravity, was a nice feeling, but then we had the impact, and let me tell you this, i thank god that my helmet didn't broke apart because my head was banged so hard into the main gunner's sight...

    it hurts like hell. my gunner on m84 (ex-yugoslav built t72) got his shoulder broken as a result of that kind of jump. i had no serious injuries, but i felt like i was overrun by mbt -everything hurts. nothing can prepare you for that kind of impact. you feel like crash test doll

    When the Russians brought a T-80U for a demo in Cyprus prior to a deal to buy a battalion worth of vehicles, the crew did a similar stunt which resulted in 2 lost teeth for the driver

    All that tank jumps are not for use in combat, but to show tank's abilities.
