Popular Mechanics: Watching the T-90, it's hard not to admire this fighting vehicle

39
The American magazine Popular Mechanics has published material about the Russian military tank third generation T-90, which notes that despite the fact that this machine will leave the world stage after the release of T-14 Armata, it certainly deserves admiration.




“These days the battle tank T-90 no longer rules the ball when it comes to Russian heavy military equipment ... the new pearl of Russian tanks today is Armata. However, watching T-90, it’s hard not to admire this fighting machine, ”quotes an excerpt from RIA material. "News".

In support of the publication leads the video with a shot of the tank at the time of taking off the ground. It is noted that the shake-up of the camera was not due to the fact that a huge car landed on the ground.



“While the T-90 weighs almost 46 tons, that“ shake-up ”that you see is the shock wave from a shot in the air of a smooth-bore gun in the 125 mm,” notes the publication.

T-90 - the main Russian battle tank, which was developed in the late 1980-x early 1990-'s. It was put into service in 1992 year. In the period from 2001 to 2010, the year was the leader in sales on world arms markets.

    Are you dissuading from T-14? Like, this one is good with you, why do you need one more?

          Thank you for evaluating the comment, but it is important to note that in this case, the Americans have already prepared a cliche, the answer:

            But no. Abrams is not such a bad tank. It was created as a response to the avalanche of inexpensive and well-armed Soviet tanks (and of other countries of the Warsaw Treaty). His main task should have been actions from ambushes, support of fortified areas. In short, positional battles. Therefore, the gun is rifled, and the power reserve is not so large, and the reservation is mainly the upper part of the front hemisphere. This is a tank for defense, not for attack. This is what the Germans taught Americans by fighting with us.
            Our T-72 / T-90 is an analogue of the darkness of the Horde riders. Lightweight, fast, well-protected, but most importantly - massive. Because inexpensive and very, very (!) Easy to use. And that means reliable. This is what we ourselves learned by defeating the Germans.

            Z.Y. Even now, I could teach any Turkmen to shoot from my 72 river where he served in the 87-88 year. He would teach in two or three days not just to shoot, but also to hit if he had finished at least 8 classes. And if he hadn’t finished, then in four days. Hуthe bottom car was. T-90 is probably no worse.

          Yes, what kind of "super-duper", just a heavy tank, and without any extra. bells and whistles, because the "busy" ones who pressed on the supply of "conditional" allies of normal equipment always "shed" the frank "scrap", so in my opinion the "Abrams" in the Middle East are just scrap metal that went to war instead of remelting (something like this same as the "aglitsky" "Saxons" to Ukraine).

          I think I know how one could try: through money. There are a lot of ways invented (all sorts of Olympiads, professional boxing, Formula 1, etc.), you just need to take the appropriate one and modify it, based on the conditions.
          Punds are greedy for money, as a result, the loot will win anyway. Well, we will look at fascinating events.

        And here, Alexei, I will disappoint you. In the program of modernization and rearmament of the RF Ministry of Defense, a decision was made to further modernize the 72 series, the T-90, not a word. Why dont know. Already wrote on this topic, but there were no comments.

          I completely agree. they don’t say something about the number and percentage of t-90 to the total number of armored vehicles. so the bulk is the t-72, without additional systems that improve the survivability of the tank. and in the event of a large-scale war, bridgeheads ("tank fists") with military equipment will be destroyed by atomic missiles.

    Again, patriotism, firstly, according to the designers of Armata, this is a platform, and the T-14 Armata is a tank, secondly, the criterion is “best” conditional, and this applies to everything, according to British intelligence, there are up to 147 tanks on the territory of ISIS Abrams "in a different technical condition (mostly badly damaged), so it’s likely that our T-90 and Abramsa are likely to meet, but for some reason everyone focuses on meeting these tanks, and there’s a lot of militants with T-72, which just the same in Syria, wait and see

          Perhaps it’s not about the adjoining military. It was not for nothing that it was reported that during the attack on the marines of the Russian Federation "The captured militants had plans for an air base and satellite images with marked points of important military installations." ISIS has got its own companions?

    Popular mechanics is a very interesting magazine. By the way, it’s probably hard to call what is printed with us an American magazine. In November 2002, the first issue of the magazine in Russian was released. The first time in the issues was from 4 to 8 translated articles borrowed from the American version of the journal; since 2006, the number of translations does not exceed two articles in the issue. All content is entirely created by the editors of the Russian Popular Mechanics. Can you imagine that in the American version of the magazine, they will sing laudatory odes to our T-90? smile hi

    Yes, do not worry, yet, will not leave soon. Given that in a number of countries the T-55s are still in service, you can still admire the forty years. And bump into him somewhere else in Africa.
    Many countries now can only dream of such tanks. Yes, what is far to go? Won Ukraine restores rotten 64 matches, for them the T-90 is a dream, now a pipe dream, true lol So, what else will you see in his case? Don’t hope that after Armat’s troops receive scrap, we won’t let them go. Syrians, for example, will leave two hundred, and your “backyard”, I think, will buy wink

    The magazine "Popular Mechanics" is quite popular among specialists, and such an advertisement for our tanks is pleasant for readers and useful for our manufacturers.
