Russian Army Receives First Backfitted T-90M Proryv Tank

: Apr 16, 2020 - : 4:28 am

Russia’s Taman motorised rifle division has received its first backfitted T-90M Proryv (Breakthrough) tanks with a number of modified characteristics.

T-90M is a backfitted version of the T-90A. The main difference from its predecessors is a new tank turret with multiple layers of armour plating, a modified ammunition storage area that is placed outside the fighting chamber, and the 2А82 tank gun that is used in another Russian tank, the Armata.

The T-90M was tested by the Russian army during the military exercise Zapad-2017 which was held from the 14 to 20 September 2017.

This tank was upgraded thanks to the combat experience of the Russian armed forces gained during the counter-terror operation Syria.

The Russian Defense Ministry and the company UralVagonZavod has signed a contract for the delivery of T-90M main battle tanks to the Russian army at the Army-2017 International Military-Technical Forum that was held near Moscow in August 2017.

Last month, a military source from the Russian Defense Ministry told the Russian press agency TASS that T-90M Proryv tanks could take part in the Victory Day military parade on May 9, 2020.
