Doomsday tank successfully tested in Russia

Last week, Russia successfully tested the new T-90M tank, developed as part of the Breakthrough-3 project. The latter is a deeply modernized version of the T-90 and has a number of advantages.


The new combat vehicle was equipped with a boosted engine of 1130 hp, an auxiliary power unit, a unique fire control system, the latest dynamic protection system, and a 125-mm smoothbore gun, which today is considered the most effective tank gun in the world. In general, taking into account all combat and operational characteristics, as well as the price-quality ratio, our T-90M managed to surpass the American Abrams and the German Leopard.

In addition, thanks to the latest low-reflectivity architecture combined with the use of radar absorbing materials, the T-90M has become several times less noticeable than its predecessor. For what the car has already been nicknamed "invisible."

However, all this could not have happened if it had not been for the contract signed in 2001 with India for the supply of 310 T-90S units. This is what saved our tank, whose production stopped in 1998.

After the harsh tests that our T-90 passed perfectly, India decided to bring the amount of these combat vehicles in its army to 2000 units. In turn, the military, impressed by the characteristics of the Russian tank, called it "the second deterrent after nuclear weapons," naturally, referring to a possible collision with their sworn enemy Pakistan.

    Good article, great movie! This is an advertisement not only for the tank, but also for the PEOPLE who created it. These are the leaders - patriots and must be put at the head of the government!

      After the collapse of the USSR and the division of armaments between the CIS countries, Russia remained ... ... until now, experts argue how many tanks Russia has left, some talk about 10 thousand, others - 25 thousand tanks. The troops have about 6 thousand, the rest are in reserve, for conservation. We got good tanks .... T-72, T-80, T-90, all of them are slowly being modernized, without haste, rush and race. My comment is addressed not only to those who are shouting - where is the Armata, let's give Armata, let's send thousands of Armata to the troops, but also to those who loudly shout "All for the modernization of the T-90!"

        Yes, I have no complaints. It’s really interesting, although approximately how many 90s we have. In the Red Star in '92, I remember, on the last page all the time there were advertisements for the sale of military equipment, from field kitchens to the Mi-8, we cadets read it on cadets. And the articles were with photographs of hundreds of tanks abandoned in the fields, and how the local males rode on them. I remember this crazy time, I remember ...

        And about "unhurried" modernization. On the Karelian Isthmus, our neighbors were tankers from Saperny. Then for the first time I heard from them that they could not find more than 2 identical T-80s. In the design bureau and at the plant, the people earn "doctoral and other bonuses", therefore, one tank has a 7 cm mounting pin in the engine, and the "neighboring" one has 15 cm. When replacing it with d ..., people come with the most indispensable swearing.

        About 23 thousand tanks went to the former RSFSR ... different models, ranging from T-54 to T-80, T-90 were not yet produced. T-90 is an expensive version of the T-72, which the Russian Federation did not pull, so they stopped on its budget version of the T-72M3 2016
        After the start of the operation in the SAR, the disposal of the tank fleet of the Russian Federation in storage was suspended, only the T-54/55 and part of the T-64 were disposed of ....

        It turns out that our country is the absolute leader here: on the balance sheet of the Ministry of Defense there are as many as 18 177 units of the mentioned military equipment. Of these, the T-72B tanks (7144 units), T-80 (4744 units) and T-64 (4000 units) form the basis. In addition, the T-62 (689 vehicles) and the T-55 (1200 tanks) are in service. Least of all in the tank troops are armored vehicles of the new generation - T-90, there are only 400 units. Agree that this is a negligible figure for such a large army. Let's hope that in the near future the situation will continue to change, and in a few years the statistics will change for the better. - Read more on FB.ru:

    And what about "Armata"? Or is it just for cartoons?

    our T-90M managed to surpass the American Abrams and the German Leopard

    Do you understand what you are writing? You wrote as if our tanks were worse before. After such an article, all the trump cards on hand were "lost." What the fig?

    However, in total this might not have been, if not signed in 2001 contract with India for the supply of 310 units of T-90S. This is what saved our tank, whose production stopped in 1998.

    I like such passages.
    And why tank building in the Russian Federation (already under Infallible) had to be rescued by the Indians, and not the native "thief-oligarchs"?
    As, in fact, to this day the defense plants are "in debt as in silks", but they are invited to engage in conversion.
    But the infallible oligarchus does not leave.

    I think it's so simple shamefullyWhen Ministry of Defence suing (!!) with military factories, instead of cherishing them like the apple of an eye, and funding at the highest level of priority.

    That is why I have always argued that for real toughness you need to have real industry, real finance, and real science.

    And not just shreds of Soviet heritage, but a set of Kremlin show-offs in the box that they carry here and there.

    Like it or not, and how deeply do not upgrade, but it is time to put on the conveyor the release of a new tank. At least for the needs of Russia itself. And the video has more visual propaganda than the actual material. All tanks drive and shoot. At least on camera.

    Not really. More for parades, photo shoots in patriotic military magazines. In general, for the Pontus general plan.

    You did not notice the main thing.
    It is not said that he is better than others.

    Superior in price / quality ratio.

    56 second.

    That is, cheap and cheerful. It is not said about the new elongated shells that are in Armata and the last Abrams with the Leopards.
    The frames of the old T-90 are shown mainly, and only a few seconds of the new ....
    And radio stealth.

    - Here was a wonderful Omsk tank "Black Eagle" ("Object 640"), which was demonstrated already in 1997 ... - And which could have been in service with the Russian army for 15-20 years ... - very effective and cheap in production ...
    - And which really impressed everyone at once ... - and the NATO public, including ... - then they already had their veins shaking with fear ... - But then the enemies of the people urgently removed this Omsk tank "Black Eagle". ..
    - And on the Uralvagon began a long and endless hassle with the T-90 (a seven-tier platform was taken from the Omsk tank "Black Eagle") ... - And many of the developments of the "Black Eagle" were used in the new main battle tank "Armata" ...
    - As for the Doomsday tank, i.e. T-90M - what is new in it ... - and what kind of thermal imagers are there ??? - As always - French ... - And where is the satellite connection ??? - And what electronic sights are there ??? - And what kind of protection do they have ??? - Yes, even air conditioners (as it was said) - whose are there ??? -and what kind of "new" 125 mm cannon (which has already become familiar) ??? - And why did this old engine fail to reach 1200 hp? ???
    - Well, you can still fight against the ISIS with them; and then ... - and these "barmaley" from "TOW" and "Javelin" will easily destroy them (and even from RPG-7) ... - And there is nothing to say about the modern army ... - The same Americans from their own Apaches anti-tank missiles from a distance of 10-15 km will reach them with impunity ...
    - Well, by the way - for Indians, Vietnamese, Algerians, etc. ... - and this will do ... - anyway, they do not pay Russia for it .. - will wait for the next "debt cancellation" ...
    - But for the Russian army - this product ... - It is obviously rather weak ... - Yesterday ...

    I completely agree with you, except for one thing - the video is rubbish! "Cutting" frames with different tanks, although we are talking about a specific one. Plots change with incredible speed - it is impossible to focus attention! Tear off the hands of the one who prepared the video. This is not an ad for Twix, although their video is more watchable than this fake, since the camera does not jump like a stoned operator! lol hi

    You need to understand the following: weapons, whatever it is, are the costs of the budget, of the money taken from the people. And it, even being economically used, does not make a return to the budget. Only the following operating costs.
    But those sold abroad are already RETURN. At the same time, jobs, deductions to the budget and replenishment of the budget for the value of the contract. It is only important to sell to someone who will not resell and use weapons against yourself. We do good consumer electronics ...... cars ...... furniture ...... clothes ...... to make money, both for ourselves and for export. Well, oil. Well, gas. Well, fertilizers. Well, metal, but not a high alteration, but in semi-finished products. All.

    All these innovations rest on the fact that the capacities of the military-industrial complex are partially privatized, this is not for the USSR. Listen to aksakal Ivashov and it will immediately become clear:
