The power unit – within the engine-transmission compartment – provides (including conditioner) with the power supply without main engine usage. as a result – improved armor protection (VDZ, ‘Nizh’, ‘Zaslon’) improved basic armament not affecting its movement characteristics. Maintainability is also greatly improved, reduced work factor for maintenance and renewal.
