Wow out of all the exports they send they haven't acquired more than a company eh. Can you give any details about the T-64 upgrades?

Actually found this on the 64B...

According to "nowa Technika Wojskowa" (nTW) issue Jan. 2005 only 8 T-84 were introduced to service in Ukrainian Army.

According to nTW issue Apr. 2006 modernized T-64 will receive ATGM Kombat and new APDSFS witch can penetrate at least 650mm of RHA.

I'm not familiar with the KOMBAT. I googled but didn't find much. Any details would be appreciated. Also how would it be fitted on the tank?

On a side not what is the relationship with the Poles? How come they're peacekeepers are under a Polish command?

Notes
(1)Considerable numbers of T-54/55 main battle tanks have been put into storage or were sold in 1994-95; data on T-64 numbers has been reassessed in the light of details emerging from Kiev. The numbers of Russian-built T-80 and the locally developed T-84/T-90 tanks is estimated.

(2)The total figure for tanks disclosed at the CFE Treaty meeting in December 2003 was 3,784.

A very respectable set of figures and their artillery and army aviation numbers are not too bad either.

That would be cool, but the GWB-lookalike that seems to be a Ukrainian top brass hat also climbed around in a more traditional looking T-84 on that event.

I'm not sure if it is an Oplot though.

They're not likely to get much of either one, given the atrocious situation in the armed forces. Even the battallion level T-90 procurement in Russia is considered ridiculously low. Procurement of a few tanks annually will have practically no effect on the over force structure, or equipment. Essentially once the motor resources of those tanks start running out, the Ukranians are screwed.

EDIT: By the way an actual ORBAT, not just equipment listings, with divisions and deployments, would be greatly appreciated.

Yep - it`s Oplot minus the Muzzle reference system, the photo that I posted most likely is a Urbanized kit for Oplot.
