Development Prototype


Obiekt 685

The Obiekt 685 was developed in 1975 as an experimental airborne light tank with amphibious capability. Based on the BMP chassis, the vehicle was developed by the BMP design bureau at Kurgan in competition with the Obiekt 934 which was developed in Volgograd. Both vehicles were developed as replacements for the PT-76 and ASU-85. The Obiekt 685 had a 100mm main armament. Only a single prototpe Obiekt 685 was built, but the idea was retained, the BMP design bureau at Kurgan developing the Obiekt 688 in 1981 which was developed into the BMP-3 MICV.

PT-85 (Obiekt 906)

The PT-85 was developed at the Volgograd Tractor Zavod (the old Stalingrad Tractor Plant or STZ) under the designation Obiekt 906 in 1962. Two prototypes were built and tested during 1962-63. A variant of the tank, also developed under the designation Obiekt 906, was the PT-90, armed wit a 90mm D-62 tank gun. The PT-85 had an all welded hull and was powered by a D-6-300M engine developing 300hp, which gave the vehicle an excellent 20hp/tonne power/weight ratio and a top speed on roads of 75km/hour. The PT-85 did not progress beyond prototype stage.

Obiekt 934

The Obiekt 934 was developed by the Shabalin design team at the BMD design bureau in Volgograd in 1975 in competition with the Obiekt 685. The vehicle was intended as a potential replacement for both the PT-76 and the ASU-85. The Obiekt 934's intended role was eventually taken by the 2S9. The Obiekt 934 was air portable and amphibious. Interestingly, the Obiekt 934 chassis was used in the 1990's for development of the 2S31 Vena self-propelled gun.
