An official representative of Uralvagonzavod announced that negotiations are underway to prepare a contract according to which India is preparing to acquire a batch from Russia tanks T-90MS. Corporate representative quoted RIA News:


Negotiations are underway on the possibility of concluding a new contract with the new conditions for the supply of India with T-90MS tanks.


The preparation of the signing of the contract for the purchase of a batch of T-90MS tanks by India


It must be recalled that Russia and India are already implementing a contract for the supply by Uralvagonzavod of T-90C tanks with a license to manufacture these machines in India itself. The T-90MS tank is the newest export version of the T-90 tank.

Dimensions T-90MS:
weight 48 tons, length 9530 mm, width 3780 mm, height 2228 mm.

The tank is armed with an upgraded 125-mm smooth-bore 2А46М (5) cannon, which reduces the dispersion of projectiles by about 15%, and also provides a greater number of shots until the barrel is replaced. High wear resistance is achieved by chrome plating. Tank T-90MS is capable of firing a full set of conventional ammunition, including an armored-piercing feathered subcaliber projectile (BOPS), a cumulative projectile (CS) and a high-explosive fragmentation projectile (CFS). In addition, the tank can shoot guided projectile with laser guidance 9М119М to 5000 m.

The 7,62 mm PKTM machine gun is mounted to the right of the main armament. Its ammunition is 2000 cartridges. On the roof of the turret, a 12,7 / 7,62 mm machine gun is installed, capable of turning at an angle of about 316%.

T-90MS is equipped with a computer fire control system (fire control system). The tank has an improved set of armor, including updated passive elements in armored modules.

      this is interesting.

      2) but will they not stamp 1000000 tanks?

      These children saved the Ural tank builders with their order from stopping production. Therefore, YES, it’s not a pity for the children. The Pakistani tank forces are already losing qualitatively in terms of the number of Indian battalions. There is no other way, there’s a stop in Tibet))).

          Compare the number and characteristics of the modifications of those T-90 that are in service with us, and those that are in service with the Indians (in Wikipedia there is).
          Attends the feeling that we were just thrown, cann’t the MoD really pay for orders (or just upgrades) at UVZ? And the fact that they will upgrade T-90 right up to 2020 of the year ... The deadline is simply opulent. Hindus - here you are the best, and we and the old shit will go.
          Well, for the heap, compare the parameters of the modifications of our T-72 and Indian tanks.
          Generally kaput. The Hindus have the newest models and in large quantities, we have old rubbish without BIUS and TiUS, with old engines and DZ Kontakt-1.
          So say, feel the difference. That's what pisses me off.
          Here we are sooo behind the Indians. It is interesting to know what is the reason?
          At the exhibition, all Arabs are interested in the BMP-3 "Dragoon", and ours are not interested. Arabs newest BMP-3, we hrenushki. Waiting for Boomerang and Kurganets? And when will they be, taking into account that our defense industry and the state order like to shift deadlines to the right (as with T-14 and PAK FA).
          In Iraq, 12 Sunshine, and we have 8 Buratin in all.
          THIS IS THE CRY OF THE SOUL! Excuse me...

              We may have to fight with NATO, and the Hindus will obviously not help us.
              And threw us a big cut in MO, now there think you are not sawing? Or sawed only when stool. When Shoigu EMERCOM headed you know how they sawed, oh-oh!
              Some megaprojects of the TsUKS type (in MO - NTUOG, wait, the military will still cry with this structure) so much dough has been filed, but in reality now - the TSUKS and regional centers are like the fifth wheel in the cart. Only slides make you draw and millions of reports are required. The firemen paid a surcharge for “I'm afraid, I'm afraid”, such as they do not risk their lives, and they are tearing off epaulettes from them, like kittens pelts. But in the managerial apparatus wages are growing by leaps and bounds.
              It is terrible to enter the Main Directorate, if you spit, you will get into a colonel, you won't find an old man in the afternoon with fire. On an 1 general, 150 fighters in uniform are on average, and for one rescuer 7 colonels. Such statistics.

        I completely agree. It is a pity that I can not put more than one plus!
        It is necessary to focus on what is now. While Armat is run in, while they are put into service, while they buy (or maybe they refuse, what the hell is not joking, won over as an order for the PAK FA), time will pass by hoo.
        And if the war? On the old T-72 and T-90, we will certainly win it from the pederasts from NATO, who will not attack the rain and cannot fight without Coca-Cola, but who said that the Chinese brothers on the clones of our tanks did not back us will hit when we are physically and economically weakened?

    It seems to me that the proceeds should immediately be spent on the modernization and expansion of existing plants. Otherwise, where and how will our T-14 be mass-produced? In addition, something needs to be done - again urgently - to do something with personnel policy. There are not enough working hands, and these are not groans and conjectures, but objective reality. A strong bias towards all sorts of "managers", "like-lawyers" and "like-economists" continues to persist. Other "bread" professions were added that do not require special efforts - "designers" of all colors, different "insurance agents" there. And it is very disappointing that such useless people get a lot of money, while an intelligent engineer at the same UVZ or UZTM will receive well if half as much. And young guys will receive at all ... not enough.

      Yes, that's for sure!
      Therefore, it is high time to introduce measures.
      What kind ? Various.
      For example, to prohibit currency transactions to all banks, except for a few authorized. They may well provide the necessary operations for foreign trade, and without speculation it is possible to live.
      Limit the cost of maintaining government as a state. so municipal.
      It is there that there are a lot of thieves and well-paid "like lawyers and somehow economists and all mannerists."
      Introduce liability for parasitism. Let not imprisonment, but simply by the principle: work, pay tax - good. Do not work for more than a year? The average tax is all one, pay!
      Transferring money from the jurisdiction of the Russian Federation? Pay half! moreover, let’s check what kind of money it is, if it’s criminal.
      And the money to pay engineers and workers in the factories will be more. yes

        And at the municipal authorities and no costs at all. Themselves from bread to kvass interrupted. But on civil servants (republican or regional level) costs are not sickly from the state budget.
        For example, in our city: the salary of the head of the department (municipal employee) is about 25000 maximum, but the head of the administration, his deputies and business manager (civil servants) are several orders of magnitude higher, and in their hands, in direct management, the municipal property they trade like granny tomatoes from the garden. And they have a sickly gesheft, the former first deputy head of the chapter (not so long ago he quit voluntarily, I don’t know, I could smell roasted), who was in charge of financial questions - a Ferrari car, what are you asking for? And the head of the administration ...
        It is necessary to limit state, but not municipalities. And then the administration doesn’t even have the money to pay for and service part of the phone numbers, and there’s no money at all for municipal budgetary institutions, as they say, get out for yourself. And how will the kindergarten get out, when he is unable to pay for a one-time snow removal, and even more so, because there is no money for gasoline from an organization specializing in this organization.
        You have it.

    Interesting news. Uralvagonzavod is probably loaded with orders. Since by the way, not only Indians are interested in the T-90 and its modifications. (In particular, Azerbaijan, an order for 3 battalions). That's only in the homeland the tank is not in honor. And the point is probably not only in financing, for the modernization of the T-72 - they find money.

      In-in, they find it only on a tank that is outdated in all respects, and if they are modernized, they are in small lots (some of which are probably sold abroad, I don’t know, I don’t want to believe, but there is an impression). But for tank biathlon, horseradish horseradish understand what, that is, the fact that they don’t get into line units, and if they do, they’ll like cuckoo’s tears in small doses, and most likely as exhibits at various exhibitions. Like, choose the people, we don’t need it for free.
      We do not really need a lot of new T-90, damn it to upgrade existing ones.

    T-90MS is a wonderful car. By the criterion of "cost-effectiveness" is currently ahead of Armata. I imagine how it will now be difficult to determine the process of introducing new machines. One thing can be said, for Armata the future belongs to the T-90MS.

    Meanwhile, Algeria today signed 2 on the contracts:
    1) We ordered an unnamed number of 330MRTT Airbuses - the main feature of which is the ability to use in military transport operations, transporting military personnel in the cabin and in refueling. That is, they are converted for a specific mission in a short time.

    2) We ordered 14 Su-30MKA of new construction "The contract has been signed, in 2016-2017 the 14 planes will be delivered to Algeria," said the head of Rostec.

    Well, what can I say. Great news. India has already bought enough armored vehicles from us (unlike China) to obtain a production license. For them it’s not a pity. Plus UVZ kopeka will bury and production facilities will be freed.
    Well, the second point is present: they will start production of the T90 - they will slow down their Borzhom (Arjun).
    It is very pleasing that our managers have finally learned to trade both products and technologies of the military-industrial complex.
    And then, as I recall, I will tremble when, during the EBN, potential buyers refused our equipment only because we were unable to arrange service maintenance at the operating sites.

    The T-90SM, for some reason, has been stubbornly referred to recently as the T-90MS (“Let them call what they want, they’re all used to it,” commented the source of Lenta.ru at Uralvagonzavod to comment on this situation.) This tank is, as I put it would be a civilian business, the flagship of Tagil tank exports. Its roots go to the Proryv-2 OKR, according to which since 2004 a promising version of the T-90 tank for the Russian army was created (it is called either T-90AM or T-90M). Now the Ministry of Defense is just considering the option of upgrading existing tanks for this project.
    This version is not cheap. The tank received a completely new fighting compartment (tower), as well as a new fire control system. In combination with a more powerful engine and changes in protection (in particular, the Relikt dynamic protection was installed), this machine is a specific analogue of the Su-35S fighter: a transitional model between generations of equipment. By the way, some experts indicate that the 125mm 2A82 cannon should be used on the internal Russian version, the same as on the T-14 tank.
    The T-90SM will be offered (and is already offered) to traditional T-90S users - primarily Algeria and India. However, judging by active marketing, the tank is being strongly promoted towards the monarchies of the Persian Gulf. According to a number of reports, he is interested in the Saudi military, as well as the military of the UAE and Kuwait. Separately, there is an oil producing Iraq, recently experiencing a renaissance of military-technical cooperation with Russia against the backdrop of the struggle against Islamist guerrilla warfare, climbing out of the Syrian civil war.
