The Algerian military is delighted with their T-90CA

In January, XNUMHod, during the visit to Algeria of the President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, an agreement was reached on the supply of various weapons to this country. Last but not least was the T-2006CA tanks. During 90 years, 4 Nizhny Tagil main battle tanks and their commander version of the T-185SKA were to enter Algeria. And also - spare parts, ammunition and training complexes.

It was planned to deliver a batch of repair and recovery vehicles BREM-1CA with the installation of air conditioners.


The prototype T-90CA (Object 188CA) was manufactured in May 2005. It differed from the basic T-90C by the presence of an air conditioner and a thermal imaging cooling system, automatic target tracking, and installation of a modified laser radiation detection system. At the end of 2005, this tank successfully passed intensive tests in Algeria.

The experience of the operation of tanks, in the opinion of the Algerian military, was generally positive, the problems encountered were promptly eliminated.


Algerians, unlike the Indians, who saved on air conditioners, did not experience problems with the operation of the fire control system, in particular, thermal imagers. Well proved and automatic target tracking.

In 2011, it became known that the Algerian side acquired an additional batch of T-90CA tanks in the number of 120 vehicles.


And last year it became known about the plans to purchase more 180 machines, however, according to some information, we are talking about a more advanced version of the T-90CM.

      There is an article interviewing an Arab army officer whose main tank is Abrams! So after the T-90 test drive, he had only admiration and desire to fight only on the T-90

    Saving is not always good.

    It is certainly good that the Algerians liked (and deservedly) the T-90, but ...
    It would be better if the "nineties" entered our troops at such a pace ...

        I completely agree with you that our Armed Forces need the most modern weapons.

        Until we wait for "Armata" troops will be left without tanks

    I think, taking into account the cost savings in armament, the T-90 is now not the most necessary purchase for the Russian army. New machines, of course, would not hurt, but the 72nd is a good car, as long as you can get by, but without new ICBMs, Boreev, Yasenei and T-50 can be caught by the throat, this technique is needed yesterday, and a lot!
    Mass production FOR YOURSELF will be more interesting I think already with Armata.

    And I feel sorry for 80. Awesome car was, with the 72nd can not be compared. She would be finished.

    If you remember that the human body is also a mechanism, the "northern" pay. And about the "southern" I have not heard ...

    damn this is the scale of orders ... that means the plant has enough capacity to produce tanks in such quantity .... and when will our army be equipped with so much new armor? Armata is certainly curious, but let's first rearm the units on the T-90.

      How many cries about the forgiveness of debt to Algeria. As a result, we get good contracts now, and do not expect that they will give back sometime ...

    I am glad that independent expert tankers between Abrams and T-90 choose our tank!
