    Can't that tank shoot? Niether vid showed a live fire.

    I bet Tom Hanks could take it out with a single sticky bomb.

    As I said, this is firing-test-platform (2nd prototype).

    The cannon was already tested in a stabilized platform.
    Now it will be tested in real conditions, after this prototype there will be one more prototype with add-on armour.
    1st prototype was for drive tests in various terrain. And designs still change (it changed from 1st to 2nd prototype).

    Tank will get an electric engine.
    So says the company which builds the tank.

    Otokar mulls making of domestic 'electric tank'


    It already produces buses with electric engine:
