Protection of upgraded T-90M tanks will be strengthened by KAZ "Arena-M"

The Russian T-90M tank in the course of further modernization will receive an improved Arena-M active protection system. This is stated in the materials of the 38th Scientific Research Testing Institute of Armored Weapons and Equipment (NII BTVT) of the Russian Ministry of Defense.


Research Institute specialists suggest continuing the modernization of the T-90M after 2025. According to the calculations of the Research Institute, up to this time the modernized Russian Tanks T-72B3M, T-80BVM and T-90M in terms of their capabilities and efficiency will maintain parity with the main battle tanks of foreign countries.

In the course of further modernization, it is proposed to install the Arena-M active protection complex on the T-90M, and instead of the Relikt dynamic protection in the frontal part of the tank, it is proposed to install the dynamic protection similar to the T-14 Armata. It is proposed to strengthen the sides of the tank hull with hinged dynamic protection in rigid containers.

(...) The T-90M will receive electromagnetic protection systems, a complex for countering anti-tank targeting systems similar to the "Armata", a "Lesochek" jammer and an automatic fire-extinguishing system of repeated action

- TASS cites an excerpt from the document.

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.

    Did the soft containers fail?

        And that it was impossible to put at least a wire frame in a soft container? The deformation would not have happened.

      Soft containers in real databases are quite applicable for old equipment without side protection. They are relatively easy to install and in peacetime are stored in warehouses.

          Yes, everyone is already accustomed to the remoteness of the prospect of solving any issues. The managers are always ready that the concept will change, so they set such terms. If something goes wrong, then many will forget about their promises.

    Well, this is just the Wishlist of the Scientific Research Institute of BTVT, it is not known whether they will give them a go (although, if they have to reason logically, they should, but knowing the meanness of the Ministry of Defense ...) Well, about KAZ Arena-M ... Why not Afghanit? After all, this is unification with the T-14, a reduction in the cost of production and operation. But it looks like the "zoo" is an ineradicable tradition of the Russian army! And besides, by 2025 Arena-M will be completely out of date.
    In general, the news has mixed feelings. It seems like some kind of joy and then some kind of disappointment ...

      The news is nothing at all. They would be modernized at least to the T-90M as soon as possible, and the release of new ones would be established.

      Why isn't Afghanite?

      Due to its specifics, Afghanite is difficult to fit onto the T-90, but the arena is just right! Just put it not "in the future", but now, literally now ...

      If we count from KAZ Drozd, delivered to the T 55 in 1983, then in 2025, indeed, 50 years will not pass.

    This option should be included in the base on this tank.
    On the T-72B3, you need to install KAZ yesterday.

    They have been threatening to establish an arena for the T-90 since the 90s, but things are still there.
