03190 Russian Battle Tank T-90
The T-90 is the most up-to-date battle tank in the Russian army. The 125 mm smooth bore cannon fires classical types of ammunition as well as guided missiles. The T-90 which has been produced since about 1995 is a radical development based on the T-72. The low profile, reactive armour type Kontakt-5 and automatic protection system TShU-1 Schtora-1 provide higher protection. The latter should fool oncoming guided missiles. The powerful 735 kW (1000 hp) 12-cylinder Diesel engine gives the T-90 high manoeuvrability. In addition to the Russian army India also uses the T-90.
