ModelCollect Armour Gold Edition AS72043
LKZ T-80UM2 Diecast Model
Russian Army, Black Eagle Prototype, Russia, 1997

1:72 Scale   Length   Width
LKZ T-80UM2   5.5"   2"

The TU-80UM2 "Black Eagle" was a presumed prototype main battle tank produced in the Russian Federation. A mock-up of the Black Eagle was first demonstrated at the VTTV arms exposition in Omsk, in September 1997, making a single brief pass, far from the reviewing stands. The tank was based on a lengthened T-80U hull, with a brand new turret. It appeared to have had very thick front armour and new-generation Kaktus explosive reactive armour on the hull and turret. The turret had a very large, box-shaped turret bustle instead of the traditional dome shape of previous Soviet and Russian main battle tanks. The Black Eagle project was formally cancelled in 2001. Colonel Vladimir Voitov, head of research at the Main Directorate of the Armored Troops, denied the existence of the tank in an interview with the Echo Moskvy radio in September 2009. "There was no such project...and those 20-year-old pictures show a mock-up of a futuristic tank which remained just a product of someone's imagination." It was announced that some technical solutions developed for the Black Eagle tank will be incorporated into the Armata Universal Combat Platform which is currently in development.
