Why the Russian T-90S tank is the leader in the global arms market


After analyzing the world "tank" market, the American edition of the National Interest came to the conclusion that the most optimal offer in terms of price / quality ratio is our T-90S. This is indirectly confirmed by the fact that the Russian tank has already managed to bypass the latest vehicles from the USA and Germany in popularity.


Formally, about two dozen models of tanks from different countries are offered on the world arms market. However, the top three are Russia, Germany and the United States. And it is in this sequence.

Our T-1999S remains the most massive in terms of sales since 90. There are more than 1000 of them in the Indian army alone. In general, in the tank forces of the world (excluding Russia) there are more than 2500 T-90 tanks of various modifications.

The main "highlight" of our combat vehicle is that in terms of its combat and operational characteristics, it is not inferior to foreign competitors, but significantly gains in price.

Thus, the T-90S bypasses the newest Abrams M1A3 and Leopard 2A7 + in speed and maneuverability, while not inferior in firepower. But the price of our car is only $ 4,5 million.

For comparison, for a heavily used "Leopard" of the first series in Germany they ask for at least 3 million, and for a new one of the same series - from 6,5 million. As for the latest Leopard 2A7 +, it will cost 11 million. And this is not the limit. ... The Americans are asking for $ 1 million for their Abrams M3A12.

    T-90, these are modifications of the T-72 "Ural" of 1974. At the price, the 90kA will definitely win Always!

        The question is not in years, but in the price of the product! NATO countries will definitely choose their own weapon!

          In this case, the NATO countries and their allies do not care about the price of the product. In any case, they will buy "their" more expensive one. But even here there will be a political moment. For example, the Poles. They have beautiful Leopards at their side (they even have them in service), they also have their own Twards (high-quality faces of the T-72), and they thought about the overseas Abrams. And all why? Russophobia and anti-Germanism!

              Yes, money. In the pockets of the Polish politicians responsible for the decision.

                not just money. Everything is trite, but not so much. It is to show your loyalty to the owner. This is more important than money.

                  To show loyalty to the owner means to stay in office for some time. And this is money.

        you know, there are different ones. What are you interested in? What were offered to the Poles?

        you are abruptly wrong. The price of a product, and even more so the cost of operation, is an important indicator. But not always.

        it is he who is present in this case. But not in the way you think by misunderstanding:

        Quote: greenchelman
        Russophobia and anti-Germanism!

        Not at all. This is a desire to please the United States (if in even more understandable language - then to lick) in the hope of further profit in the form of "protection from aggressive Russians", "we are in the same boat". For Russophobia, the Leopard would also give a ride. But the Germans are not the United States, they are not those strengths and influence, they are just crammed into Washington's friends. Isn't it obvious? Or are you fixated on Russophobia?

    It's not about the price or anything else, but the fact that this car is the result of consistent development that has been going on since the days of the best tank of its time. Since 1945, the Chelyabinsk "soap dish / pike" (stands in Chelyabinsk in the form of a monument not far from ChTZ) has given the direction of development. Absolutely all angular shapes with an exorbitantly thick forehead revealed their shortcomings in the form of mass, low resistance to shell hits and extreme gluttony. "Remnants" changed for the better: they became lower, more maneuverable, more deadly. Nothing new. Evolution of technology. Price and quality. Expectation and result.
