The procurement contract on the newest tank support combat vehicles (TSCV) Terminator and T-90M tanks for the Russian Armed Forces was signed on Thursday, August 24, at the Army-2017 military forum.
TSCV Terminator is based on the T-72 tank chassis. Thanks to the powerful and versatile weapons, it effectively destroys enemy’s tanks, IFVs and other armored targets, firing points, fortifications, and personnel using grenade launchers and antitank systems.
T-90M tank was designed under development project Proryv-3 and became the further upgrade of the T-90AM models. Key distinction of the vehicle from the previous versions is a new turret design with ammo stowage rack located beyond combat compartment. Moreover, the tank is equipped with the modernized 125-mm gun with extended barrel and new fire control system.
The new tank constitutes an adaptation of previous in-depth upgrade projects of T-90 to requirements of the Russian military.
