The Object 490 (some sources claim this variant was called "Belka") was one of several variants carrying the designation and was developed in Kharkov specifically to carry the 152mm 2A73 smoothbore cannon. As tank designs went, its properties were pretty much without equal. It offered impressive protection and firepower along with quite distinctive four-track chassis, powered by two ZiM 4TD engines, producing up to 2000hp. Most notably, the crew compartment was located in the rear of the wedge-shaped hull with pretty much everything (including massive slabs of armor and an entire turret) between it and the enemy. This combination provided unprecedented levels of crew protection – for the frontal hull (the upper frontal plate), it reached from between 2000mm of RHAe to incredible 4500mm of RHAe. The unmanned turret was, of course, protected less, as it itself acted as a protection element for the men inside.

In summary, the Soviets came up with a vehicle that was practically impossible to knock out from the front, had a hydro-pneumatic adjustable suspension and was armed with a massive automatically loaded gun that could take out anything the NATO could field.

The use of experimental technologies, however, meant that it was clear to everyone involved this tank would never see active service. While advanced, it was clearly too expensive for any mass-production. The photos that were discovered relatively recently belong to a full-scale wooden mock-up from the late 1980s or the early 1990s, which is as far as the tank got. With Ukraine split from the Soviet Union and running into economic troubles of its own, there was simply no funding for such fantastic endeavors and the project passed into history along with the other late Soviet era next generation tanks that were supposed to lead the Red Army into the 21st century.
