Did you guys notice the T-62 in the background? It has the NII Stali slat armor suite, but not the BDD "horseshoes" on the turret. It may have the BDD on the glacis plate, but that's not visible. It also appears to lack the thermal sleeve for the main gun and the coaxial laser range finder. And it also seems to have the early loader's hatch, the one without the AA HMG mount.
It seems to be part of the train. It is coloured with the same camo as the car behind it, and it isn't on a normal flatbed car but sort of semi-permanen platform.
I've said it once and I'll say it again.. assholes... drop the politics and all other bullshit!! These are some awesome pics and something you won't see on most sites. Drop the bs and appreciate this thread for what it's meant!
Thanks for the pics, RomanS!!! Have a lot of respect for the Russian military! I could see a lot happening if Russian and US forces could work as one cohesive unit.
