The command authorities of the South American republic were shown the T-90S tank combat and running capabilities by day and at night as well as accuracy of fire with all types of weapons at different ranges from a halt and on the move under conditions of limited visibility and mountainous terrain.
The combat vehicle crew completed all missions successfully having demonstrated high potential of the Russian tank manufactured by Uralvagonzavod.
After the major demonstration one of the Peruvian drivers of the T-55s being in service with the Peruvian Army was offered to “take a drive” of the T-90S tank. After a 5-min briefing, he made a run showing a good skill level and brought the tank to a halt by the Commander-in-Chief. The experiment is a proof that the advanced T-90C tank is as responsive and simple as its predecessor T-55 produced by Uralvagonzavod 40 years ago.
Senior officers of the Peruvian Army appreciated the T-90S tank capabilities and the skill of the tank crew members.
