The Russian Ministry of Defense continues to deploy in Ukraine their latest generation of military equipment and combat vehicles in Ukraine. In December 2022, the Army Recognition editorial team reported the delivery of 200 T-90M tanks to military units of the Pro-Russian Armed Forces in the Donbas region.

On January 12, 2023, the Russian company Uralvagonzavod delivered another batch of T-90M Main Battle Tanks (MBTs) to the Russian army to strengthen tank units deployed in Ukraine.

On December 21, 2022, the Russian press agency TASS announced that a tank unit of the Central Military District in Ukraine received a batch of upgraded T-90M Proryv tanks

Just a few days ago, the Telegram channel "Tankists of the Southern Military District" reported the move of a T-90M tanks column to the front line in Ukraine. It was also reported that an undisclosed number of T-90M tanks are now in service with Wagner Group performing combat operations in Ukraine.

The T-90M is the latest generation of Russian-made tanks. It is a modernized version of the T-90 main battle tank (MBT), which is in service with the Russian Army. The T-90M features several upgrades over the original T-90, including improved armor, a new fire control system, and the ability to launch anti-tank guided missiles from the main gun.

The T-90M is armed with a 125mm smoothbore gun, capable of firing a wide range of ammunition including high-explosive fragmentation (HE-FRAG), armor-piercing fin-stabilized discarding-sabot (APFSDS), and anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs). The tank is also equipped with a coaxial 7.62mm machine gun and a 12.7mm heavy machine gun mounted on the commander's cupola for defense against infantry and low-flying aircraft.

Using APFSDS rounds, the main gun of the T-90M has a firing range of around 2,500 meters, while firing HE-FRAG rounds, the range is around 7,000 meters. The range of ATGMs is typically around 5-8km, depending on the missile variant.
