Among the chief issues Ambulatory Fighting Vehicles faced were their raised centers of gravity compared to more conventional vehicles which made heavy chassis a questionable prospect. Coupled with the inherently hard-to-armor knee, shoulder and hip joints, most early heavy AFV designs were failures.
One of the first successful conventional heavies was the GAAV3 Zveryoga (Brute). True to it sname, the original design was originally itnended for civil suppression. After a violent strike in the newly annexed Kharkiv plant by Ukranian workers who feared the AFV would be used agaisnt their own people, the design was modified for conventional warfare.
The heavier frame with its wide legspan and low center of gravity proved receptive to more loading then previous designs. After a comprehensive up-armoring and installation of extremely advanced Almaz-Antey avionics, the Zveryoga proved to be a lethally versatile main battle AFV.
