Are T-90A tanks being operated in Syria?

53
Photos of Russian appeared on the Internet tanks T-90A, and the captions under the photo indicate that these tanks were allegedly sent by Russia to Syria. The information about the location of Russian T-90A tanks in Syria is actually confirmed by the image of the preparations for the concert at the Khmeimim airbase of the Russian team Blue Berets. These images are also published by users of the global network. There is no information on the concert in Latakia on the band’s official website.


Are T-90A tanks being operated in Syria?


Initially, it was reported that the T-72B3 tanks could be located at the Khmeymim airbase, from which Russian attack aircraft, bombers and fighters fly into the sky of Syria. Information about the presence of Russian tanks in this country appeared at that very moment, as it became known that the air base in the province of Lattakia would be used as the main military base for the counter-terrorist operation by the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation assisting the Syrian government army.

From the characteristics of the T-90A:

The mass of the tank is about 46,2 T. Crew - 3 man. The main armament: 125-mm smoothbore gun (launcher 2A46M-2). Ammunition - 43 shot, of which 22 ammunition is placed in the rotating conveyor of the automatic loader. With a tank gun paired machine gun. Ammunition machine gun - 2 thousand rounds. There is a TKN-4C sight. One of the main functions is the possibility of suppressing the enemy’s anti-tank complexes by the Shtora complex.

Details about the characteristics of the main battle tank T-90A can be found by clicking on link.

        Why is it strange? Why can't our marine corps guard and defend the airfield complex be reinforced with a T-90 tank company?

      In my opinion, it is one thing to show in ideal conditions, and another is military operation. The system is most likely expensive and unreliable. Given its dimensions, small arms will be disabled quickly enough. SAA at least to hang DZ on all tanks would be both cheap and cheerful.

            Are you smoking that ??? To protect our base in Latakia, air defense systems, airborne defense systems, landing troops and T90 tanks were sent there a month ago. The author lives in a parallel reality, the plot was on the first channel.

          He has a lot of new things relative to the T-72, for example, the armor is different (especially for the frontal armor, the tower itself, which is characterized by a different configuration), then you can test the curtain in combat conditions, as an example, and it’s also possible to drive the car in real combat conditions , given that the T-90, unlike the T-72, has not yet participated in real battles.
          Although it can be assumed that these tanks are part of the ground cover forces of the airfield.

            from here the conclusion in real combat conditions does not really drive out ... although it can if the company of tanks is transferred to the Syrians just for break-in, then ... there might be might be .. I would go for this option ... laughing

        Of course it's true! Marines guard our bases in Syria. Well, at the expense of tanks, I can say the following, when pictures of our airbase in Syria began to appear, from our "friends from the West," then our armored vehicles were clearly marked in these pictures and it was signed exactly as T90. Therefore, there is no sensation here.

      If you look closely at the pictures - then on the first in the post gjv and on the one in the article you can clearly see that to the left of the DZ blocks (between the DZ blocks and the installation of smoke grenade launchers) it is quite clearly visible that the tower in this place has an "angle" - which is typical for the T-90 (it has a tower - hexagon with unequal edges), and not rounded as in the T-72/80, plus the characteristic configuration of the DZ block on the tower, plus the "curtain" system (although theoretically it can be screwed onto any tank), which means it is more like a T-90 than " tuned "T-72.

        By the "headlight" of the IR searchlight. The T-72 has one and is located on the right (and the B3 does not have one at all). The T-90 has two of them, on the sides of the gun. This is the most reliable way.

        The T-90S is an export T-90. The RF Armed Forces are armed with the T-90A (to the left and right of the gun are the Shtora searchlights, the T-72 does not have them).

    From the first days of the existence of our base, Latakia mentioned the strengthening of the perimeter of the T-90 airfield to 7 pieces. I don’t see anything new in the article. There was already an article on the site about the state’s concern for the quality of Abrams armor (captured by the IS) in the event of a clash with the T-90

    And why be surprised, the Russian tank is guarding the Russian base. T-90A, T-90AS, T-72B3, BMPT and others may well pass the battle test. Then it will be easier to draw conclusions about what our sun needs. Although there is a simpler test option, for sure the Syrians can throw trophy birds, the same as TOW-2.
