T-34 still in use in Yemen:

Does anyone else think this looks like WW2 German tank camouflage?

Fidel's SU-100 from the Bay of Pigs (now on display in Havanna), which he/they claim to have damaged one of the invaders' ships.
 

Only thing not found in the Tamiya kit is that box on the right rear casement (see third photo, above)

SU-44-120, one-off prototype.



For a "no wrong answers build" I'd suggest an SU-85 or 122 casement, T-54/55 hull, T-34 roadwheels and cylindrical external fuel tanks, plus a donor 120mm main gun with muzzle brake.

Please check my other posts, I'm familiar with how to embed photos. I did the URL-only deliberately, since they were hosted on Facebook.

None that I could find. I think someone was watching too much SPACE 1999 on 3CP1 TV.

It appears to be a variant of a BTS-4 ARV.  Speculation online is that particular snorkel attachment was for use in recovering wrecks in harbors. Just drive up to whatever you want to bring to the surface and pump it full of air from a surface auxiliary air tank and try to dislodge it from the seabed, either floating it to the surface where a recovery boat would be waiting or attaching lines to drag it out of the water.

Question for the experts: how, in your estimation, would the image from the commander's sight be transmitted to the commander's display (the commander sits in the front of the hull, outside of the turret)?

Can it only done wirelessly, or is there a wired solution to this requirement?

I would guess it's a wireless solution because the flexible interface for a wiring/fibre-optic loom for a 360o-traversing turret would, I'd think, be rather complex for transmitting that level of data.

Oops! My brain was in the "slip ring around the turret ring" mode, I completely forgot about enclosed turret baskets (or even floored turrets)! :o :o :o

Wireless could be subject to EW interference.  A cabled solution solves one more level of security that a wireless system lacks.

What if Morocco in MLU proces for their ageing T-72, decides to modify M60s -equally ageing- turrets in order to accept 125 mm gun?

Israel could do a new Tiran option aimed for export. I would buy the bottom one.
