Many Russian AFVs begin life with an 'Object' designation; this is sometimes written as Obiekt or Объект as it is written in Russian. As an example, Object 268 which was a proposed assault gun that only made it to the prototype stage. The numbering for the Object designations were based on the design bureaus to which the project was awarded:

100 Series: Altai Tractor Plant 200 Series: Leningrad Kirov Plant 300 Series: Uraltransmash 400 Series: Kharkov Heavy Machine Building Plant 500 Series: Omsk 600 Series: Kurganmashzavod 700 Series: Chelyabinsk Tractor Plant 800 Series: Assigned to various OKBs 900 Series: Volograd Tractor Plant
