Am I alone in thinking it would be simpler to just buy the T-64 and get a better vehicle?

I think the idea is to 'modernise' T-55 tanks with worn out engines and running gear, but where the turrets and guns are still usable, by replacing the complete hull, rather than the individual components.
Also, I think the intended customer base is users for whom the T-64 fire control system would be too 'high-tech' (autoloader, missiles, laser, etc.), as well as those who do not have access to the T-64's specialised ammunition.

cheers,
Robin.
