Video with close-ups of Russian equipment

being repaired:

includes a test drive of a turbine powered tank


The video may not even be taking place in Ukraine, me second viewing of it made me suspect that it was propaganda or “feel good” produced by Russia.
Considering Russias extremely poor performance in the logistics area in Ukraine this well organised show doesn’t fit in.

It contains trucks, tanks and helicopters.
One out of three for armour.
One for softskins (Softskins in Ukraine anyone)
One for helicopters (Choppers in Ukraine??)

Thanks for posting this, interesting to see the barrel change on the T80B.

Great video; lots of interesting stuff there.
What kind of BMP is being transported by the heavy lift copter?

Not a BMP at all.
It is based on a Gvozdika (which in its turn is based on the MTLB) chassis
This is the UR-77 Meteorit

MTLB comes from " Mnogotselevoy tyagach legky bronirovanny, literally "multi-purpose towing vehicle light armored "
BMP comes from "Boyevaya Mashina Pyekhoty 1 (Russian: Боевая Машина Пехоты 1; БМП-1), meaning “infantry fighting vehicle”
