The first T-90A will go for modernization from Abkhazia

First tanks The T-90A, which underwent modernization to the T-90M "Breakthrough" level, will be vehicles from the Russian 7th Krasnodar Red Banner Order of Kutuzov and the Red Star of the RF Armed Forces military base in Gudauta (Abkhazia). This was reported by "Izvestia" with reference to sources in the Ministry of Defense.


According to the material, the T-7A tanks (tank battalion) that are in service with the 90th military base will be removed from the squad and sent for modernization to Uralvagonzavod by the summer of this year. Instead of the T-90A, the tank’s tankers will receive the T-72B3 tanks. At the same time, the “Abkhazian” T-90M tanks that underwent modernization will not return to the base, but will go into service with the tank units of the Western Military District (ZVO).

Earlier it was reported that the Ministry of Defense concluded three contracts with UVZ for the supply of a total of 160 T-90M tanks. At the same time, it is specified that only 10 MBT T-90M should be of new construction, and the rest should be modernized from T-90 combat tanks. As follows from the messages of the Ministry of Defense, the T-90M of the new construction has already been transferred to the troops, they entered service with the 2nd Guards Taman Motorized Rifle Division of the 1st Guards Tank Army ZVO.

According to available information, the modernized T-90M tanks, in addition to the 2nd Guards Taman Motor Rifle Division, will also be part of the 27th separate Guards Motor Rifle Brigade (Mosrentgen, New Moscow) and the 6th Separate Tank Brigade (Mulino, Nizhny Novgorod Region) of the West military district.

The T-90М tank was developed as part of the Breakthrough-3 development work and is a deep modernization of the T-90 with increased combat and operational characteristics.

In the course of modernization, a new turret module with a 90-mm gun of increased survivability and accuracy was installed on the T-125M. A remote-controlled machine gun installation caliber 12,7-mm is installed on the turret. In addition, the new tank is equipped with a highly automated digital fire control system that provides search, recognition, auto-tracking and hitting targets.

    This means that the tanks recently received in the Taman division were newly built.

        In Georgia they could have kept silent, they have something to do in their country. But now there is no such country, it is now a colony, and slaves are not accepted to ask for opinions

        There should be no screeching, because more modern tanks named T-90 are being withdrawn, and tanks of the "outdated" T-72 model are being introduced, of course, if you do not go into details.
        The Foreign Ministry will respond to the concerns of the Georgians, the thesis of a decrease in tension in relations and the corresponding transfer of the base to the rear configuration.
        Can’t ours be as hypocritical as US diplomats? Live in wolves, howl like a wolf. We also need to wage information wars.

    Instead of the T-90A, the base tankers will receive the T-72B3 tanks. At the same time, the modernized "Abkhaz" T-90M tanks will not return to the base, but will go into service with the armored units of the Western Military District (ZVO).
    Both good and bad ... Really, during all this time, have not accumulated several dozen T-90A, in need of major repairs? They could be the first to be used for alteration and to be replaced in the troops already from this "shunting fund"

      The General Staff knows better. We don’t know the percentage of combat equipment at the Abkhaz base ... Maybe there is a kind of "maneuverable fund ... Besides, 72B3 will immediately come, which, to put it mildly, are not worse than the first 90s.

                In January 2019 I read that "the tank battalion of the 7th military base in Abkhazia will now have the" newest "T-72B3 tanks, and the" old "Abkhaz T-90 tanks in the resorts of the Syrian Arab Republic, now in full force. opinion, in a couple of years, tank battalions of the 19th, 20th and 136th motorized rifle brigades of the Southern Military District will also be rearmed with the "newest" T-72B3 tanks. T-90 tanks will remain only in three court-parade battalions 2 th motorized rifle division and the 27th motorized rifle brigade. "

                  is it a mockery? T-72B3 is better than the old T-90

          What for? In the Turkish direction, the South USC is opposed by tanks from M60 / 48/47 to Leopard-2 of the Turkish Army and from T-55 to T-72 of the Georgian Army ...
          The T-90 M / MS is more needed in the Western USC, where we are opposed by the RT-91 (analogue of the T-72M1) and the used Leopard-2 of the Polish Army to the Challenger-2 (Great Britain), AMX-56 "Leclerc. "(France), M1A2 SEP" Abrams "(USA)," Leopard-2A7 "(Germany) ....
          The western direction is a priority, therefore, in Armenia and Tajikistan we have tanks previously in service with the 127th and 201st MSD SA ....

        Well, when I served there, all the tanks there were new (in my unassuming view, for sure). They were not even touched, tankers went to firing on the territory of Russia, where they worked on other people's tanks. A number of cars stood closer to the border with Georgia, at the landfill.

    It is not entirely clear why there are so many T-90M tanks around the capital, even they are being removed from Abkhazia. For me, so near the borders of Abkhazia, another provocation-conflict is more believable than in the suburbs ...

    Not bad, but our tanks, including the new T-90M, still do not have KAZ and BOPS with penetration at the level of NATO samples.

    We are lagging behind the West, our tanks are weaker and have fewer opportunities to defeat enemy tanks, this is a fact.

      This is true, but the security of the new tank is much better than the western ones, we can’t penetrate them at a long distance and it is similar to us - parity has been achieved.

        They have new BOPS penetrate up to 950 mm of armor equivalent from 2 km, and we have from the same distance only 650 mm.

        And they already put KAZ on the tanks, and so far we have not moved much in this direction. At least some of the KAZ tanks received, at least for Syria, they checked the effectiveness of this complex and compared which is cheaper, to put KAZ on the tank or after each tank missile ATGM to wish new tanks and prepare a new crew, burying the old one at the same time, paying insurance to the families of the victims.

        Well, the obvious thing is, KAZ is REQUIRED by our tanks, but there are no progress in this direction. Just some shame.

        There are 8 million Jews there, and those KAZ are putting on tanks of OWN development, but we are not. Although the Jews would have bought then, for several regiments.

    I look at the T-90A turret, then at the T-90M turret and think about reworking. Then I remember that the news was published by Izvestia and everything falls into place. Another fake from a yellow rag laughing

    Abkhazia is mountains, mountains and mountains again. Tank in the mountains is difficult. Plus from Gudauta to the places of possible provocation from the Georgian side still need to get there. And there are not a few bridges there.

      You were not in Abkhazia from the word at all! all of Abkhazia is a narrow shallow strip of land between the sea and the mountains! from Gudauta to Sukhumi bridge 2-3 and they are all in good condition .... mdaaa .. however ..

        There are three rivers between Gudauta and Sukhum. These are mountainous, very wayward rivers. Small but depending on the season can be impassable. Inguri, flowing directly along Sukhumi, is rather full of water. It has two bridges. The remaining rivers usually have one bridge. If the Georgians are busy and destroy at least one bridge, this will create a serious problem in the movement of tanks towards the Gali Rye. Fording traffic for some period is impossible and I think that they will take into account Grushchina. How many rivers between Sukhumi and Georgia I will not count. But they are also not few, and as a rule there is only one bridge on them.

    I never understood why talk about relocation. Well, they would say that T90 was added to the ZVO, why say that they removed it, they added it. There are no things to publish.

      For the empirialists, this is called arms control ...
      And not all our people will be able to distinguish the T-72 from the T-90, and even more so the Turks ...

    In short, they decided to assemble all T-90A / M / MS in tank formations of OSK Zapadny, T-80 BM in OSK Severny Flot, and T-72s of all types in other formations, subdivisions and units ...
    the T-7A tanks (tank battalion) that are in service with the 90th military base will be removed from the squad by this summer and sent for modernization to Uralvagonzavod. The modernized "Abkhaz" T-90M tanks will not return to the base, but will go into service with the armored units of the Western Military District (ZVO).

    And what, in all of the ZVO there is not a single tank repair plant where it was possible to modernize the T-90? What are the logistics costs ....
