Expert names most dangerous tank on the balance sheet of Russian troops

This is about the last tank made by the Soviet Union.

Military expert Oleh Zhdanov has said that the most dangerous Russian tank for the Ukrainian army is a Soviet-made T-80BV tank, Zhdanov said on his video blog.

I think the most dangerous tank for us may be the T-80BV tank," the expert said.

He explained that the T-80 was made on the basis of the T-64.

The design changes to the chassis and turret came a little later with the installation of the gas-turbine engine. It was then decided to change the chassis, that is, the tank's transmission, and to change the suspension for the gas-turbine engine. Then the turret shape was changed slightly, but the barrel and automatic loader - the most important - were taken from the T-64 tank. The T-80 has the same rate of fire as the T-64: eight rounds per minute", said Zhdanov.

At the same time, he pointed out that the T-80 had a very low cruising range - 360km in fuel and 300-320km in combat service.
