World Defense Show: Uralvagonzavod Displays Desert Tank Т-90МС

SC Concern “Uralvagonzavod” (a part of State Corporation Rostec) will present its Т-90МС tank “Master of the Desert” at the first World Defense Show in Saudi Arabia from March 6-9.

As emphasised by experts, the armored vehicle features a higher level of combat capabilities to meet the most advanced combat requirements.

Tank Т-90МС is designed by the Ural design Office of Transport Mechanical Engineering (as part of Concern “Uralvagonzavod” incorporated in Rostec).

The armoured vehicle mounts an original operational module equipped with a powerful gun weapon system of high endurance and accuracy, and a remote machine-gun mount.

Computer weapons control system provides all-day and all-weather target location, detection, identification, and automatic tracking with the effective kill at ranges up to 5000 m from a halt and on the move. Perficient 3rd-generation omni-directional protection in unit implementation protects the tank against sophisticated antitank weapons.

Thanks to 1130-hp diesel engine produced by URALTRACK-CHTZ, Ltd. (as part of Concern Uralvagonzavod incorporated in Rostec) tank Т-90МС features high mobility, maneuverability, fuel efficiency and controllability. Modular design offers the prospect of further tank uprating.

In 2014,the T-90MC tank exhibited its high combat, dynamic and performance characteristics in Kuwait, where a demonstration was organised for this Middle-East country military.

The Russian armored vehicle successfully passed multi-day desert tests where it showed its worth in high dust conditions.
