The export version of the T-90MS main battle tank has a new fire control with a set of all-day stabilized sights of the commander and the pointer. The fire control is integrated into the terminal of the controlling system to obtain tactical information in the automatic system of unit control.

The single tactical-level system was designed by Sozvezdie Concern. The first contract for the delivery to the Russian troops was signed in late 2018. Sozvezdie said the system provides information exchange between tanks in real time, a general picture of the battlefield, and creates a single information network.

The concept of the so-called netcentric war appeared in the West and has to provide information and communication supremacy over the adversary by networking all participants in combat.

Terlikov said T-90MS has a better fire density and survivability of the 125mm gun. The tank fires a broad range of munitions, including a guided missile and a high-explosive fragmentation shell with preset detonation. The weight of the tank does not exceed 50 tons.
