YEKATERINBURG, December 4. /TASS/. Armored and motor rifle units in Russia’s Central Military District received a batch of upgraded T-90M Proryv main battle tanks, the District’s press office reported on Monday.
"A batch of 15 upgraded T-90M Proryv main battle tanks has replenished the combat vehicle pools of armored and motor rifle units of the Central Military District’s combined arms army. The T-90M armament features a 125mm gun capable of firing advanced munitions and missiles, a remotely controlled combat module with a 7.62m coaxial machine-gun and a 12.7mm machine-gun," the press office said in a statement.
The T-90M Proryv is the most advanced armored vehicle in the family of T-90 main battle tanks and most of all fit for modern warfare thanks to its all-round armor protection, top-notch all-weather highly automated fire control and enhanced survivability.
The tank has received a fundamentally new turret differing from the serial-produced combat module and a more powerful 1,130 hp engine. The Proryv is outfitted with a 125mm tank cannon that can fire new powerful munitions and also missiles capable of wiping out enemy tanks from a range of 5 km.
The new multichannel sight enables the tank to employ its armaments at any time of the 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.
