Was a prototype of the "T-74" ever built or did the concept never make it off the drawing board?  It'd be interesting to know more about such a vehicle, looks quite an advanced design.

 

I think I've seen a small scale model of the "T-74" before somewhere but I cannot recall where from.

This is as far as it went I think:

Bit of a shame really, it would have been a really interesting vehicle to have seen in the metal, something certainly quite unique to have on display at a place like Kubinka.

 

I've just found the T-14 Armata video (how it came to be by Red Effect) and I've spotted the hull of the screenshot you posted above.  So they got at least as far as the hull then.  I take it that the scale model of the vehicle may still survive?

 

And as for the Objekt 195 and "two prototypes"?  Hmm...I wonder what they're being used for now then?
