The main character that is made T-80 tank different from the other models, that are generally similar due the combat opportunities, means T-64 and T-72 types, is gas turbine engine (GTE). The existing of that type of engine can explain the rapt interest showed by experts and journalists and that it enjoys the wide popularity from average men (The good meaning of that word). The T-80 model surpassed its contemporaries in popularity. And it can be understood in a case with the top secret T-64 model. But then it's difficult to explain in a case with the "working horse" of the Soviet tank troops, that carried war on nearly all of the continents, the T-72 model
Apparently, the main cause is in the type of the power-plant. There are a lot of tanks in a world with the different types of the diesel engines. But only two of them are with the gas turbines, they are our T-80 model and American "Abrams". If so, we'll start from the creation of the power-plant for T-80 model. Especially, if the work on tank design started in the seventies, and the works on engine creation started much earlier
