Ability of modern tank to overcome water barriers is one of the most important components of its combat potential. Indeed, far from always the conditions can remain purely ground when the crew of an armored vehicle performs a combat mission. The task of forcing water barriers is relevant for the conduct of hostilities and is therefore actively practiced in the course of various exercises.
And so that the tank was absolutely sealed after leaving the factory, they are satisfied with a full-fledged "bathing" in a special technical pool of suitable depth. The tank with the help of special cranes is sent to the technical pool, which performs the function of a natural ford.
Leak tests are performed for 20 minutes or longer. At the same time, the depth of immersion of the T-90 tank (namely, it’s about the report TC "Star") is 5 meters.
The check helps to identify leaks, if there are any after the assembly of the armored vehicle. The elimination of leaks ends with a new “dip” of the T-90.
In fact, here it is necessary to take into account the Soviet standard: the tank hull can pass water in the amount of up to 5 liters for five minutes. However, modern tank builders are trying to keep out of the question about any leakage of the armored vehicle during its operation - complete, reliable tightness.
