Its interesting to see the ACAV-type turret placed on the TC turret. One thing I like about the IA is the Americanization of Soviet-style equipment. The reverse is true as well - uparmored humvees with DsHKs.

They're T72M or T72M1 tanks depending on where they were built and other smaller features.
