HISTORY:
Object 292 was a Russian experimental tank that was designed and made by the design bureau of the Kirov Plant. The prototype was based on the T-80U tank turret, and the chassi was the T-80BV with slight modifications done to it.

The T-80U turret got its gun removed and was modified to house a 152.4 smoothbore gun. It was made so that it can destroy any NATO tank in any distance at that time.

DESIGN:
The tank like said before was using the turret of a T-80U and the chassi of T-80BV, the tank was fitted with a LP-83 152.4 mm smoothbore gun. Like most Russian tanks of it’s time it suffered of poor gun depression and slow reload despite having an autoloader. And becouse of the havey wight of the gun the traverse speed of the turret was slower that of the regular T-80s.

Despite this in trails that the Object 292 went through in 1991, has shown high stability and reliability of the gun and the tank itself. But becouse of the lack of funding further developmeant were stoped. An intressting fact is that the gun turret could be interchanged between standard T-80 MBTs and the ammo rack had a maximume load of 16 152 mm rounds.

Sadlly i could not find any information about the shells it used! But would love to have that information, so if someone finds it before me i would love if they could just post it in the comments! I will be also trying to find more information!

Happy news! I found some information on the shells!

Here:

  • Grifel-1 APFSDS with Tungsten core
  • Grifel-2 APFSDS with Depleted Uranium core
  • Grifel-3 HE-FRAG
  • Zaraysk APFSDS (the name also belongs to the research project of the LP-83 gun, performance unknown)
  • Sprinter ATGM with a tandem HEAT warhead

Neither Wikipedia nor the model building kit website list any reliable technical information.

May I ask where the technical stats, like the ammo used, speed, gun depression, vertical and horizontal and so on are coming from?

Gaijin has their ways

That may well be, but @AtlasLaion listed technical information in his original post and I’d like to know where I can find that info.

Gaijin may have their own sources, but we don’t know that and they might very well just copy & paste.
I also would like to read up on the tank itself, so any good source would be very welcome from that point of view as well.

I’m sorta surprised at its implementation, I’m excited to see where this takes us.

Tfw no conceptual welded turret

I’m surprised they decided to forgo the theoretical ERA armor. Most vehicles in the game have the loadouts they would have recevied, no? Like the TOG

Well seems like it’s now to come lol.

There is no theoretical ERA. This is just the test bed, which didn’t have and wasn’t planned to carry ERA, though at the same time it wasn’t planned to be used in combat either.
