    I wonder if they will decide to upgrade all the T-80's to the BVM designation and send them in the arctic?  Would make a great tank for the arctic forces.

    T-90's are to be a combination of new (M) and upgrades (AM). The first 60 ordered are 10 new and 50 upgrades. The T-90 is still in production for exports so this will not tax them. Should actually create some foreign sales. They are talking about 300-400 T-80BVM's. No mention if the 200 T-80U's will get an upgrade.

    I sure hope they do. Streamlining the tank upgrades is a must to reduce cost and get full potential. The T-80U is past its prime in capabilities and needs the thermal optics and what not.
