At the Defence Exhibition of Nizhny Tagil, REA 2011 (Russian Expo Arms 2011 ), which held from the 8 to 11 September 2011, Russian defence industry unveils a new upgrade version of the T-90 main battle tank, the T-90S.






The T-90S can fire anti-tank guided missile. The system is intended to engage tanks fitted with ERA (explosive reactive armour) as well as low-flying air targets such as helicopters, at a range of up to 5km. For explosion and fire safety reasons some ammunition allowance is stowed in a special hull rear section.


The T-90S is motorized with a new V-92S2F engine which reduces the fuel consumption, and he is also more powerful. The new T-90S can run at a maximum speed of 60 km/h on road.


To increase the protection of the tank, the T-90S is fitted with new armor plates to each side of the hull, to protect the suspension against anti-tank rockets. The rear side of the hull is equipped with wire cage armor, same as for the turret. A new three sets of armor are mounted at the front of the turret.


Actually a new Russian main tank is under development under the name of “Armata
