Korean T-80U

Hi all,

My first post here :slight_smile:
South Korea has been given T-80U by Russia in the 90s’.
It seems several local modifications have been done to bring these tanks to local standards.
Anyone could point me out what are the modifications?
Thanks in advance.

Rubber pad tracks and the pads are fitted to the T-80 track
new ariel mount on rear left of turret
jerry built stowage racks
no snorkel
IFF boards
the three yellow chevrons appear to be on all the vehicles
the additions aren’t hard, for the stowage rack I used 0.5mm square rod and this was fragile and fiddly
this link is quite good, it uses the RPG kit and shows most of the mods needed.
