I guess it's a T-84U "Oplot" (upgraded T-80UD), it probably belongs to the Ukrainian 14th Mechanized Brigade :

AFAIK the "U" variant hasn't been released by Trumpeter (yet ?)...

Trumpeter currently have the basic T-84 plus the U, UD (Russian?) UMD (Russian?) and BM Oplot-M versions. A UM is promised for 2018: similar to the one in your photo but not quite the same. Xact also do the Oplot-M version but it seems to have a large panoramic sight absent from the Trumpeter offering.

Did Xact model ever release their Oplot? I thought they went under before it was released

French,

I think the other poster is just confused.
But You are correct, there is only Ukrainian T-84 and T-84BM Oplot kits released so far.

Trumpeter has released the kits of the T-80U and T-80UD, and in the near future we may see the T-80UM (with Areana Active Defense). I guess the announced kit of the Black Eagle could be included in the T-80 family too?

I don't thinks Trumpeter T80U and UD are already out.

I have the T84 , a great kit, and will buy the T84 BM which looks to be the version sold to Thailand but not in uses in Ukrainian army.
I didn't know that Ukraine have a unit of upgraded T84!!

I saw ukrainians T84 with this camo but i thought it was pre sales tanks.
Is this camo Ukrainian one or just Thai one (as future buyer)???

At least this is the one the Ukrainian army tanks had during the Combined Resolve X exercise...

Pardon my ignorance, but what`s the difference between a Soviet T-80 and an Ukraine T-84?

The T84 was based on the T-80UD, simmilar to the T-80. The T-84 has new welded turret and Shtora-1 countermeasures suite, new electronics, new main gun, new armor, and 1,200 hp (895 kW) 6TD-2 diesel engine.

I think currently Ukraine has 10 of the Oplot M in service, with various other countries looking to buy.
