Response to my understanding.....

Tu-95 in Russian is "Too 95" because it is from the aircraft designer's name: Tupolev (toopolev). And Su-27 is "Soo 27" - Sukhoi (sookhoi).
But AFV names are most likely indeed pronounced differently. So in Russian ASU-85 is probably "ah ess oo 85". Not "ey ess you", as U is pronounced as "you" and A as "ey" only in English, in most other languages it is "oo" and "ah".


NOTE: Insert .k between my name and @ in my email address!!!
