This is the (not so) well known MBT of Ukrainian Armed Forces, a local derivate of the russian T-80UD.
That mean it's engine is pretty much the same as the UD, the only T-80 variant which dind't have the turbine engine (much like M1 Abrams).
After the dissolution of the Soviet Union local contractors managed to keep the original plants on and the production of this tank subsequentially started in 1994.
Many improvements were made over the original schemes of T-80 as welded turret, better aiming systems and many other minor changes (Kontact-5, an improved CITV, Shtoras...).
