YEKATERINBURG, September 15. /TASS/. The T-90MS tank has passed a complete set of tests in an Arab country, Alexei Zharich, deputy director general of the Uralvagonzavod plant, told TASS on Monday.
"We regard the T-90MS tank as the headliner of our export capabilities… It has passed a complete test cycle in an Arab country," he said.
According to the deputy director general, the tank was deliberately displayed separately from the rest of the exhibits at the Russia Arms Expo 2015 show in Nizhny Tagil last week. One of the reasons for that was the need for the so-called ‘pre-contract work’.
Zharich also said that the manufacturer was fulfilling foreign orders worth $3 billion now.
The T-90MS - an upgraded version of the T-90 - was unveiled at RAE 2011. The manufacturer believes the model is facing bright prospects on the Middle East armament market. The T-90MS is equipped with a more powerful engine, a new air conditioner, beefed-up armor protection and a turret-mounted machinegun as compared with the baseline model.
Rosoboronexport Deputy Director General Igor Sevastyanov said that a number of Middle East nations were keen on Russian tank T-90, with one of them intent on testing it in the country. Earlier, Uralvagonzavod Head Oleg Siyenko said that the T-90MS had passed its tests in Kuwait.
