With the recent glut of modern Russian armour subjects, from the in-service T-72 and T-80 to the experimental/test-bed T-90s and all-new Armata, it’s surprising it’s taken this long for a crew set to be produced.
Zvezda’s set provides a typical three-man complement of driver, gunner and commander, but depicts them with body armour, protective goggles and combat helmets with integral headsets. Each comprises either eight or nine parts (the gunner and driver have two-piece torsos), with seated driver and commander and standing gunner. Based on available references, the clothing and equipment appears spot-on, and will make a big difference to any modern Russian armour model.
