It is a question of the development of a project, which in the Soviet times received the designation - "object 477".

This was on the air of the "Line of Defense" program, Sergei Berezutsky, an expert on armored vehicle engineering company "Science technology", said.

According to him, he participated in the development of this project in the 80's. Repeatedly received information about the possible participation of the running model of the latest tank in the parade (before 2014). However, it was kept secret.

Despite the fact that the design of the tank began more than 40 years ago, the ideas that underlie the concept of this tank are still promising, says S. Berezutsky:

" The armor does not have analogues, the charging mechanism, the 152 mm gun, the seven-channel fire control system. It was based on the Soviet elemental basis of those times. The screen was pixel-sized with a fist. So, with the use of modern electronics it would be possible to make a Tank which, as Americans say, is a game-changer. This is a real treasure of our defense industry. "

The expert believes that the further development and start of production of these tanks is "more than possible, it is necessary". He believes that the demand for tanks of this type will be "extraordinary".

Reference: Works on the tank of the new generation began in Kharkov at the KMDB after the Soviet era. After the collapse of the USSR, the work on the tank, which received the conventional name "
Note
" (object 477A1) lasted until the 2000s

@Scorpion there is rumours the Saudi Military plans to induct a huge amount of these tanks. are the confirmations true? I don't know considering Ukraine announced it was removing Saudi Arabia out of the An-132 development.

We are financing the industry to revive the program for JV but still no progress made far passed MOU. As for the An-132, Saudi Arabia is not going anywhere. Its just that the company Taqnia who is the main partner in the program has been merged with many other local companies to form Saudi Arabian Military Industries (SAMI) so it was put on hold for the time being.

as expected, Ukraine would be plain ignorant removing a country really bolstering their defence industry right now. I know they are hoping the An-132 gets exported to a few countries like Turkey and India.
I can see India being a potential buyer, Turkey doubtful due to them being close with Qatar and their actions across Libya. I am also quite sure the Ukrainians would not want to mess up a JV just for Turkey.
