A batch of advanced upgraded T-90M Proryv tanks has arrived for an armored unit of the Central Military District in Ukraine. The tank crews are honing their gunnery and vehicle control skills. Instructors are training the personnel taking into account present-day combat experience. After mastering their interoperability, the tank crews will start accomplishing missions within the Otvazhniye (Courageous) battlegroup,” the Russian defense ministry said.

The tank crews are practicing gunnery from the tank’s standard armament from sheltered positions and open sites by direct fire, with the gunfire being adjusted by unmanned aerial vehicles. The tank crews are also training to obstacles.

T-90M Proryv main battle tank was developed by the Urals Design Bureau of Transport Machine-Building (part of the Uralvagonzavod defense manufacturer). As its developer highlight, the Proryv is the most advanced MBT (Main Battle Tank) in the family of T-90 tanks and most of all fit for operations on a present-day battlefield thanks to its all-round protection, a modern round-the-clock highly automated fire control system and enhanced survivability technology.

T-90M has undergone multilayered modernization and can be rightly called a new MBT. It has received a principally new turret and a more powerful 1,130 HP engine.

The T-90M Proryv is armed with a 125 mm tank cannon that can fire new powerful munitions and also missiles capable of eliminating enemy tanks at a range of up to 5 km. The new multichannel sight enables the tank to employ its armaments day or night. In addition, the option of exchanging data with other combat vehicles in real-time has been one of the upgraded tank’s major advantages.
