The execution of the contract is coming. Partially cars will be transferred to the Ministry of Defense this year.- he said.
At the same time, the source clarified that part of the lot will be converted T-90 vehicles, and some will be absolutely new tanks.
In February, Deputy Defense Minister Yury Borisov noted that the agency would receive 200 new tanks of various modifications annually.
Ambulance deliveries of the modernized T-90M of the Russian army were reported to the research and production corporation Uralvagonzavod (UVZ) at the end of January. The model is equipped with a new combat tower module, as well as a powerful weapon system and automated fire control system. The 125 mm tank gun is capable of using all modern types of ammunition.
The T-90M was created as part of the Breakthrough-3 development work and is an evolution of the T-90AM (Breakthrough-2) models and its export version, the T-90MS, first demonstrated in the 2011 year.
