Interesting kit, sort of a Soviet-era version of the Centauro, I'd guess. Debatable as to how long it might survive on a battlefield populated with hostile armoured forces, though. Still, an interesting "what if" kit.

Survival of any vehicle on the battlefield without protection from hostile airpower is debatable Hiding behind something solid, to complement ones own flimsy armour, can increase the chances of survival. It also depends upon the kind of opposition, going up against modern MBT's with and 85 mm in a lightly armoured hull is probably not a good idea. Close quarters fighting with infantry armed with RPG's is probably also a bad idea ... / Robin
