Random Prototypes Which Fit Nowhere Else

Object 450 (T-74)

Developer: Kharkov
(Object 450 Photograph)

Object 477 “Molot” (Hammer)

Crew: 2 (Gunner and Commander)
Gun: 152mm 2A83 Gun with Autoloader (10 rounds in ready drum, with two 12 round replenishment drums; 34 total) in unmanned pod. Rate of fire was around 14 RPM.
Notes: Development began in 1981, with preliminary design completed in 1984. By 1987, prototypes began to be constructed. However, due to the worsening situation in the Soviet Union, work was possibly not completed. May be progenitor of current unmanned turret designs put forth over the years by post-Soviet designers.
