T 90 aka Vladimir: Once a World Top-Selling Battle Tank

Posted on November 15, 2015 by team

November 5th was a birthday of this powerful Russian machine, T-90 “Vladimir” tank, that was put into operation in 1992. It was created in the late 1980s or early 1990s as a deep modernization of the T-72B tank. The combat vehicle was named after Vladimir Ivanivich Potkin, the chief engineer of the tank.

In the period from 2001 to 2010 T-90 was the top-selling main battle tank on the world market. In 2010 it cost 70 million rubles, in 2011 – 118 million. Since the end of 2011 the purchase of the tank was ceased. In September 2011 the public was presented with a new version of the T-90 tank in Nizhny Tagil – T-90SM.

T-90 has a classic construction with a driver’s compartment in the front, combat compartment in the middle, and an engine compartment in the rear. Crew of the tank consists of three members.

    Lovely tank, Always loved those soviet tanks like the T-55 (Which the Romanian TR-85 is based on) the T72, the T80(less for that one) and the T-90(my favorite), Incredible that it didn’t turn into an American M1A1/M1A2 Abrams T90 and eventually bringing up the T14 Armata into it trash talk…
