    1 - The IISS Military Balance for 1995-1996 said that Kazakhstan had 1,200 of all of these vehicles combined. In the 1999-2000 edition it said that this had been reduced to 1,000. In addition, it was noted that following the collapse of the Soviet Union, just under 2,500 additional armored combat vehicles had been transferred to Kazakhstan, but that their condition had deteriorated. The subsequently revised totals suggest that more of these vehicles were functional than initially believed.
