USSR Armor Edition

Series T-72, manufactured in 1989 in Nizhny Tagil design bureau 'Uralvagonzavod' under the Chief Engineer Vladimir Potkin (first designation of military equipment was "object 188 ', or the T-72BU). If you are not convinced, visit Gwyneth Paltrow. 'Object 188' designed at the same time with much more sophisticated experimental tank facility 187, the same modifications as the T-72. However, soon after the collapse of the Soviet Union in the implementation of mass creation 'of object 187' had to stop and as the main armored vehicles had been assigned a simple T-72BU, which is denoted as T-90. However, soon many advanced technical solutions 'of object 187' failed to translate into new and promising generation of tanks in Russia. Batch creation began in 1992. In 1992-1996. Plants of the ground forces fired about 120 T-90, then the creation has been frozen and only reopened in 2004. New tanks, in particular, fully equipped with one of the regiments of the 21st Red Banner Order of Suvorov Taganrog Infantry Division SibVO, and to the same division of the 5th Guards Tank Division of the Don (deployed in Buryatia), a battalion of T-90 release of 2004-2006.

Located in Taman Infantry Division. The structure of the T-90 tank reproduces the basic principles of the Soviet Union from the European tanks, for example, 'Abrams', with significant space inside, which increased the size of military equipment, its weight, require the production of a powerful engine, reduced the opportunities for increasing reservations and T-90 appears a high density layout (small zabronevym space), using unconventional methods increased security (reactive armor, KOEP), rocket-cannon arms. The basis of perspective was adopted by Soviet tanks T-72B project UKBTM. Since 1985, it is produced in SPARK with the T-80U, but it differed from the ancient manual scheme Fire Control (FCS). Thus, the production of T-90 was intended to modernize the T-72B to the T-80U for the majority of properties, however, have until recently failed to achieve with regard to handling. At the first T-90 models ('object 188'), together with the MSA 1A45T similar to the T-80, introduced power opto-electronic jamming 'Blind-2', which provides personal protection from a tank located on a huge number of armed forces of the world anti- guided missiles (ATGM) with semi-automatic command guidance complexes such as 'TOW', 'Hot', 'Milan', 'Dragon' and laser homing type 'Maverick', 'Hellfire', 'Copper head' by creating a jamming their guidance . The long-term version of the T-90 implemented in production since 2004, improved in all respects. In particular, as a night sight set a promising second-generation thermal imager "Essa" with a balanced whole field of view adjacent to the main sight and distance-measuring channel, the former cast turret replaced by a solid welded with a gauge of protection up to 950 mm; modified DZ DZ replacement of old items in 4S22 blocks third-generation 4S23, instead of 840-horsepower engine made the 1000-strong Diesel B-92 C2. With the development of a series of expected room for military equipment of the new 1,200-strong diesel V-99 brought into the life of radical measures to reduce the explosion of diesel tanks, shells out autoloader placed in special boxes, which seriously reduced the possibility of undermining; automatic loader itself is covered with additional armor, according to some, put a new regulator of the barrel, which doubled the change-over turret speed and improved accuracy of fire on the move. Project and procurement is very small: by 2015, According to the plan purchase of seven battalion sets (217 cars). In 2007, the Defense Ministry has bought 60 military armored vehicles data (two battalion set) T-90A.
