Maybe this is the wrong place for it, but as you can see, its a lineal descendant.

MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 27th November, 2018) The Russian Army on Tuesday received the first six BMR-3MA next-generation mine clearing vehicles, Russia's Defense Ministry said.

"The vehicle is designed on the basis of the T-90A tank.

As part of the state defense order, the manufacturer handed six vehicles over to the Russian Defense Ministry," the statement read.

The new vehicle is mainly used to clear roads from mines while escorting convoys. It is equipped with TMT-S mine plows as well as mine detection sets, according to the ministry.

BMR-3MA can accommodate two members of the crew as well as three paratroopers.

I would not be surprised if soviet scientists also looked at infrared devices, but shelved the R&D, because there was the great patriotic war going on.

Yes.

 

So is the AA MG to have that also cleared up.

BT-7 was probably a first tank to be fitted with an IR night fighting system: during 1940/1941 a system called Dudka (Pipe) was trialed at Kubinka, but found to be of little practical value as it had range of only around fifty meters.

Also it had "stabilization" system for fire on the move. TOS-1 independent stabilized gunsight which allowed shooting only when gun was in line with sight, was made around 1935. Was a little... Unhandy, thus found little practical use and was dismissed with start of war.

Driver night sight as far as I know.

Yes, it's funny - the AMX-30B2 uses something similar. It's got a stabilized sight and a non-stabilized gun with a system to ensure that both were aligned properly before firing. Some people seem to think that it's just as good as a full stabilization system.

Well, that wasn't good enough for soviets in 30s, so...

Nor is the gun of the M1 Abrams stabilized.
