Why was it never gone in massproduction?. I visited the Tankmuseum Kubinka near Moscow, i saw a few prototypes there (like the 4 tracktank or the 6wheel “BTR-60″ But this one was not in the Museum. I think it is very interesting.

I think that there are many odd looking things in Russian Arms than any other countries arms. I like the Half tank concept but it can only be appreciated in Russia. By the way keep up the good work…

They are fine vehicles, but could hardly be described as tanks. Even the Soviets would never have described them as such. They are lightly armored vehicles at best, and only those armed with ATGMs are armed well enough to damage a real armored fighting vehicle. Unfortunately, I was with the crew of an M2 Bradley IFV, a vehicle designed by congress to fulfill the role of a light tank and an infantry fighting vehicle like the Israeli Merkava and the Soviet BMP. Sadly, the Bradley was a dismal failure in many ways and many members of the crews and dismount elements ended up as casualties, even during peacetime training. I always wanted to get my hands on a BTR or BRDM and see how it handled.

If something bad happens to all its rubber, and you don’t have to start, stop, or turn, any way but very gently, you might be just fine until you come to a hill.

Then you may have a problem, going up or descending (or shooting). Best regards.

Soldiers still carry knives for hand to hand combat. This vehicle is a hybrid, it probably serves as a scout and utility vehicle and it defintely has great mobility. I bet it could murder a bunch of tanks immobilized in mud using its superior mobility and a 30mm cannon. It just depends on the situation.

America has destroyed 30 year old out of date second rate export equipment. American tanks have never went up against real stuff and considering what 50 year old RPG 7s are doing to M-1 Abrams in Iraq it wouldn’t be good if they ever met. For either side.

I think they prove the point that russians need vehicles for various terrains. One could say that the roads are from the 40s, not the vehicles.

Or rather what you do when you cannot win or at least sustain a credible argument or discussion. So in future, if you are an absolute amature on the issue, just keep your mouth shut and talk about something that your little Neocon brain can actually digest – such as; how many guns you have or how you like to take your Jimmy off road.

Good day.

Though on last two pics there undeniably is some similarity to Batmobile.
