Advanced weapons T-14 Armata are used on T-90M tanks ready for battle in Ukraine

Hsmilitarycom: The world's largest engine development company and manufacturer of major battle tanks, Uralvagonzavod Russia has reportedly handed over a new batch of T-90M Breakthrough main battle tanks to the Russian army.

In addition Russia has also received an experimental T-14 Armata unit which is Russia's best fifth-generation tank today.

The Russian Ministry of Defense before the Russian military operation in Ukraine, had planned the acquisition of about 600 units of T-90M tanks, by modernizing the old T-90.

The Russian Army used the T-90M for the first time in April 2020.

Modernized with the integration features of the latest 2A46M-5 cannon, Kalina's fire control system, Afghanite active protection system and Relikt explosive reactive armor, and extra armor-isolating, making it not easy to explode.

Excellent in its defense, the T-90M tank was refined with better situation detection and network centrist capabilities.

In addition to a more modern thermal system and a new main gun, the T-90M Tank is equipped with the ability to deploy many new types of shells.

The T-90M tank is also integrated with the technology of the next-generation battle tank T-14 Armata.

Last May it was reported that the only T-90M tank was destroyed in Ukraine, with less damage.

Cheaper than the heavier T-14, the T-90M Breakthrough is much easier to operate and requires less maintenance.

Apart from the UK all NATO countries depend on tanks such as the Leopard 2 or M1 Abrams, designed from the early 1980s or late 1970s. 

Poland and Turkey have currently agreed on the purchase of modern K2 tanks from South Korea in large quantities.

The move by the two countries is said to cause possible losses and a major threat to Russia's armored superiority, especially if it fails to invest in the T-14.

Turkey will acquire about 1000 Altay tanks, derivatives of South Korea's K2 built under its license.

While Poland has signed a contract for about 1000 K2 units and ordered many K3 tanks in the future.
