MOSCOW, March 3 – RIA Novosti. The American edition of The National Interest praised the Russian T-90M tank, calling it a “monster” that “is becoming more deadly every day.”
As pointed out by the author of the material, journalist Mark Episkopos, the T-90M is an upgrade of the proven T-90, which brought many improvements to its design. Thus, the turret of the tank was significantly updated, it received a new fire control system, a complex of dynamic protection “Relic”, an improved cannon, as well as a more powerful engine.
“In short, the T-90M is noticeably faster, more deadly and more tenacious than its predecessors,” said a columnist for The National Interest.
At the same time, the Russian army plans to update its T-90 and T-90A fleet to the T-90M version by the mid-2020s, the author recalled. According to Episkopos, the modernization of the T-90 tanks is taking place against the background of the even more ambitious T-14 Armata project.
T-90M was developed by the Ural Design Bureau of Transport Engineering. According to the creators of the tank, it is the most advanced vehicle in the T-90 family and the most adapted to actions in modern combat conditions, including due to the presence of all-aspect protection, a modern all-day highly automated fire control system and the implementation of measures to increase survivability.
