The research and production corporation Uralvagozavod (UVZ, part of the Rostec corporation) delivered a train of the latest T-90M Proryv tanks to the Russian troops, as the press service of the enterprise reported on May 17.
“At the Uralvagonzavod, a solemn dispatch of an echelon of T-90M Proryv tanks to the Russian Ministry of Defense took place,” the report said.
Archpriest John Bragin, rector of the Demetrius Donskoy Church, took part in the event to send tanks to the troops, consecrating the armored vehicles. The tanks set off on their way to the song “Farewell of the Slav”, RIA Novosti reports.
The latest T-90M tank was created by the Ural Design Bureau of Transport Engineering. At the moment, he is the most advanced machine of the T-90 family and the most adapted to combat operations in modern realities. The vehicle is recognizable thanks to a fundamentally new turret equipped with an ammunition box. The tank is equipped with a 125-millimeter cannon, which allows the use of increased power ammunition, as well as guided missiles to destroy armored targets, including air ones, at a distance of up to 5 km. There are two machine guns: coaxial with a 7.62 mm cannon and mounted on a turret, a remotely controlled weapon station with a 12.7 mm machine gun.

According to the Russian leader, this complex is a unique weapon that will strengthen the combat potential of the Russian Armed Forces, as well as reliably ensure Russia’s security from external threats.

As clarified in Rostec, there were no analogues of such an aircraft in Russia yet.
