    Wots this?
    Seems like a fire support vehicle based on the Kurganets chassis and armed with a 125 mm gun. Very nice.

    The large calibre support weapons which look like a grenade launcher and a light cannon suggest to me it is a BMPT type fire support vehicle.

    The gun has the bore evacuator in the wrong place to be a 125mm gun... it might be a 120mm gun/mortar that might be able to fire missiles, but would primarily be direct fire HE.

    As it is a naval infantry vehicle it might be what they want instead of a MBT for landing on beaches.... a direct fire HE round and cannon/grenade launcher capacity that acts like a tank but in places where the enemy does not have a lot of tanks... or enemy tanks will be emplaced like fixed guns and therefore could be taken out with missiles at extended ranges.

    I would think an actual MBT version of Kurganets would simply have the T-14s turret fitted to it because it already has the gun and ammo and sensors and equipment needed to be a tank... and wont be particularly heavy as it wont have heavy armour.

    Could anyone translate what it says near this model of vehicle... the translation software on Yandex is failing me because the text is too small.
