The Ministry of Defense showed footage of the combat work of crews of T-80BVM tanks in the Kupyansk direction
Russian Tanks T-80BVMs are actively used in battles with the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the Northern Military District zone; this tank is in service with units of the Western Military District. Footage of the use of tanks in the Kupyansk direction was shown by the Russian Ministry of Defense.
The Russian military department showed the work of crews of T-80BVM tanks on one of the sections of the line of combat contact in the Kupyansky direction, where Russian troops continue to advance, knocking out the enemy from occupied positions. One of the tank crews’ tasks is to destroy strongholds and fortifications of the Ukrainian Armed Forces for the further advancement of our infantry. Also, no one removed the task of destroying enemy armored vehicles from tankers, but lately they appear on the battlefield less and less.
Tanks operate both direct fire and from closed firing positions, using coordinates transmitted from drones. This allows you to hit targets that are beyond line of sight. Tankers praise the T-80BVM tank, especially its ability to operate at night. As the commander of a tank company with the call sign "Vanguard" stated, tanks inflict significant damage on the enemy.
- he added.
MBT T-80BVM is the latest modernization of the T-80 tank, developed in Omsk. The vehicle, which has undergone a deep modernization, is equipped with a 125-mm cannon capable of firing guided missiles, a multi-channel sight, a modified 1250 hp gas turbine engine, a weapon stabilizer and a driver observation device. The tank is protected from fire by a complex of modular dynamic protection and an anti-cumulative lattice screen.
