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.
