Nikolay Stepanov and his son, who designed the tank with a team of like-minded individuals, are currently assembling it at the ATEK plant in Kiev.

Called ‘Azovets’, the tank features multi-layer heavy armor equipped with an explosive charge, which gets triggered when an incoming round is about to hit the tank.

The tank will be also fitted out with two GSH-23 aircraft cannons with a firing rate of up to 3 000 rounds per minute.
