The network discusses a photo of a Russian tank in the USA: versions of its appearance


An extremely interesting photograph appeared on foreign military forums. It captures a technique similar to the Russian T-90 tank on a trailer. At the same time, it is noted that transportation is carried out throughout the United States.


Naturally, such a photo cannot but cause questions from both foreign and Russian audiences. After all, the T-90 is the main model tankscurrently used in the Ground Forces of the RF Armed Forces. And even more interesting is how a combat vehicle could get into the USA.

A photo of the tank that entered service with the Russian army in 1993, after the collapse of the Soviet Union, was published, among others, by the thematic Defense Blog. But the authors could not answer the question about the origin of the photo. However, a hunch is voiced that this may be a model of a tank for more effective preparation of American soldiers for a possible meeting with this combat vehicle in an armed conflict.

According to one version, a mock-up made on the basis of the T-72 and used in the American army during military exercises to personify tanks of a potential enemy could be transported by truck. Americans widely use such models in their maneuvers to make them more realistic.

The network discusses a photo of a Russian tank in the USA: versions of its appearance

According to a number of commentators, the version of the layout is in favor of the fact that the visible elements of the Blind optical-electronic counteraction complex are not like the real ones. On the command tower there are no visible elements of the closed anti-aircraft machine-gun mount and the monitoring device TKN-4C.

As you know, the T-90 tank is produced by Uralvagonzavod. In addition to the Russian ground forces, the tank is in service with the armies of Algeria, Vietnam, India, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Syria, Uganda and Iraq. The largest number of combat vehicles, in addition to Russia, is operated by India, which still continues to order these tanks from Russia. By the way, deliveries of T-90 to Egypt are also expected.

Given the extensive list of countries in whose armies the T-90 is armed, it is possible that the American side could acquire this tank from any of the third countries. For example, in the same Iraq, American troops have been hosting for almost two decades. On the other hand, the tank was actively used during the civil war in Syria, where also one of the vehicles could fall into the hands of the Americans.

However, there are more skeptical versions. According to one of them, a tank transported on a trailer may be the props of one of the new feature films and have nothing to do with real combat vehicles. Moreover, in many American films, older Russian tanks more than once played the role of modern ones. The directors of action-packed action films in Hollywood usually do not follow the reliability and compliance with real prototypes.

It is also possible that photography may turn out to be a photo fake at all, editing in order to create a sensation. In the "society of the play" such a version also has every right to exist.

In any case, regardless of what the subject was captured by an unknown photographer, there is no doubt that the US military is showing increased interest in modern Russian weapons and military equipment. For many secrets at the Pentagon would be willing to pay a lot of money. Indeed, it is Russia that is today considered by the United States as the most likely adversary, along with China, and in the field of development and production of military equipment, our country is still a key competitor to the United States.

                They shot it around with T-72 plywood, and there were no comic debates on the VO. The bone is thrown and then it began ... something unimaginable.

      They bought, well, let them admire, they heaped green paper. While these candy wrappers are in demand, the United States can buy a lot of people and tanks.

    The story went almost smoothly and calmly. But in the last paragraphs the author did not begin to change himself and made a thoughtful conclusion about the "society of the performance" and the "absence of doubt." In the morning, Polonsky knocks down Tomahawks by Prometheus in the Mediterranean Sea, and in the evening exposes fake photographs from unknown resources. Mnogostanochnik, in a word)

      Not with a body kit, but with a buckthorn. Shorter stucco molding from foam.

        It is enough to recall our films about the Second World War, where the Tiger body kit was molded on our equipment, and it was visible on the rinks. But for the audience it’s going to be who will watch there in the battle scene, what rinks the Tygr has)))

    Most likely a movie. With technology for their land "aggressors", Americans do not particularly bother - this tank is too good (only a person chopping in a BTT will see the differences).

    But what exactly is the impossibility of the appearance of the T-90 tank in the USA?
    More than fifty T-90S / SK delivered by us to Iraq. I think about the presence of Americans in this country is not worth recalling.

    I admit that the photo is real.
    Because the rules for the transportation of overweights and oversize require a certain entourage - it is fully observed!
    marker flags, flashing yellow flashing lights - there are strobe lights, a special yellow strip "oversize LOAD" - is present, although it has been wrapped up - but it is visible.

    About the weight.
    47 tons is a permissible weight on common roads of the USA with a previously issued permit - i.e. resolution.
    3 axles on the Loe trailer plus three rear axles on the tractor and everything is allowed.

    tanks in the usa are fumbling on such trailers.
    And yes. the shape of the "loboy" trailer hides just 30 to 50 cm in height.

      In vain you so confidently insist on a real presence in the frame of the T-90 tank.
      Please read the comments above, it is also clearly said that this is a plywood model based on the T-72 tank and even with incorrectly reproduced proportions, components and assemblies. laughing

    I do not understand the subject of controversy! After all the presence of a new Soviet tank in the United States would be a sensation in Soviet times, and after the eltsinoids, at the very beginning of their “saints 90s,” easily sold the secret T-80 to the Americans (only for trying to photograph which in Germany, the too zealous German journalist was shot dead by our Soviet watch soldier GSVG!) and other armored vehiclesthis is NOT a sensation! request
    Closed ZPU (finally, less than 50 years later, disputed by the Urals on their improved T-72-Russian T-90, similar to that in the Soviet T-64 tank of the 60-70s!) And the commander's TKN are blocked on one turret the commander’s hatch of the T-90 tower and are dismantled even in the field, there’s nothing complicated (our Soviet tanks were distinguished by increased maintainability even by the crew!). Apparently the protruding ZPU interfered with transportation, so the Yankees removed it so that it would not cling, and maybe then they would install it again ?!
    And to buy or seize this Russian tank, which is in service with many amerodollarozavisimyh countries and fighting against pro-American terrorists, for monopoly issuers of green cut paper is not a problem! They could very well afford to transport a whole convoy of “non-plywood” T-90s, but only one was being transported somewhere, and this is such a surprise ?!

    The directors of action-packed action films in Hollywood usually do not follow the reliability and compliance with real prototypes.
    Just the opposite. The weapons in the films are very well represented, time does not matter. A very large number of real, restored equipment in private collections, from small arms to
    aircraft in working condition.

    Interestingly, and in the vastness of Russia you can see the American “Abrashu”?
    It would be useful to shoot at it at some training ground with existing and promising ammunition.

      What for? They shoot at ours - it’s cheaper and then recycling will be easier.

      It will feel the same way as our wrecked tank, only ours has more chances to survive due to the fact that we overtook them in tank building.

      One transportation will cost a pretty penny, so this is an empty undertaking, if only because there are means of hitting tanks in the stern from above, and this is the weak point of all tanks.
