 “Super tank” T-90M was seen concentrated close to the border of ukraine russian, analysts said that Russia could quickly add this tank line to strengthen the troops here.

The T-90M super tank has been seen concentrated in the Belgard area, just 10km from the Ukrainian border. In addition to this heavy tank, there are a variety of other armored vehicles.

Russia is said to be adding more troops and equipment to the Ukrainian battlefield after Ukraine capital Kiev decided to counterattack in the South.

Russia decided to launch the T-90M super tank onto the Ukrainian battlefield after they used main tanks such as T-72B, T-72B3, T-80BV, T-80BVM, and T-90A and suffered serious losses. on this battlefield.

The Ukrainian side has so far said that it has eliminated at least 2,000 Russian tanks from the battle, but Moscow has not commented on this information.

The Russian army began receiving modernized T-90M Proryv-3 tanks in March 2021.

It is known that the Russian Ministry of Defense and Uralvagonzavod company signed a state contract to overhaul and modernize the T-90A into T-90M in June 2019.

The T-14 Armata is considered a revolutionary Russian tank after the dissolution of the Soviet Union, but the technical problems of this tank have not been solved yet, so they are constantly late to the border. regime.

This type of tank is considered to have the same power as the most powerful Western tank variants.

T-90M Proryv-3 is considered the most powerful version today, even Russia said that the features of this tank line are close to the T-14 Armata super tank while the price is much lower.

The heart of the T-90M Proryv-3 tank is a V-92S2F turbocharged diesel engine with a capacity of 1,130 horsepower, providing this tank with very high maneuverability.

In addition, the T-90M tank is also equipped with a new turret, an advanced fire control system, and a solid protection system.

The T-90M Proryv-3 has an explosive reactive armor (ERA) arrangement and effective infrared interference lights.

The T-90M Proryv-3 is also designed with more inclined armor sections and is equipped with additional cage armor between the turret and the body to increase survivability when attacked.

Covering the T-90M tank are layers of advanced fourth-generation explosive reactive armor called Relikt, its 4S24 explosive block can be arranged in metal boxes or soft suspension bags.

The Shtora-M active defense system of the T-90M Proryv-3 is also very reliable against enemy anti-tank-guided missiles.

In addition, this is also the only tank equipped with wire mesh armor around the turret.

In terms of firepower, the vehicle is equipped with a 125 mm 2A82-1 smoothbore cannon similar to the type mounted on the T-14 Armata, in addition to being able to fire a variety of bullets, the cannon can also launch missiles through the barrel.

Thanks to the main cannon and the new generation of the fire control systems, the T-90M can shoot farther and more accurately, and the aiming time is also greatly shortened.

T-90M Proryv-3 arranged ammunition compartment behind the turret to make the vehicle safer if hit.

This arrangement solves the inherent weakness of the tanks participating in the war in Ukraine, which is that every time it is hit, the ammunition storage inside the vehicle explodes and knocks the turret up.

Another important addition that enhances the combat capabilities of the T-90M is that it is equipped with a small diesel generator that can power the vehicle’s electronics in the case of the main engine. inactive.

Its additional weapons systems include the UDP T05BV-1 remote-controlled weapon complex armed with a 7.62mm machine gun and a 7.62mm coaxial machine gun.

One of the main features of the T-90M tank is the ability to share data with other vehicles in real-time. This will help the tanks coordinate effective combat.

Until the T-14 Armata entered the frontier, the T-90M was still the most powerful tank of the Russian army today.

In the context that Russia’s main tanks were quickly defeated on the Ukrainian battlefield, Moscow launched the T-90M main tank line into the battle, hoping that they will partly regain strength for the armored force. Russia.

So far, information about T-90M has been destroyed very little, the Ukrainian side said it destroyed two Russian T-90Ms.

With this rate, this is still considered a success for this tank, when they have to fight in a fierce environment with more than 60,000 enemy anti-tank weapons.
