The flaw is not in the tank, but in the French thermal equipment and lack of air conditioning system. All of which is fixable. The only real flaw in the vehicle is where the ammo is stored, vulnerable to cooking off if hit in the right way. But Russia will fix this flaw in T-95 tank. T-90S is still a fine tank that can hold its own against western tanks.

T-90 isn't even Russias premier tank, the T-80 is...The T-80 is used by Russias elite house hold divisions.
The T-90 is just an upgraded T-72 that has been re-named for the export market, and to keep Russias production lines rolling until they make their new premier tank. It's shocking to see how un-informed Russians are about their own army...

Good morning.

I agree the Russians go for function over form, the weapons do what they need to no matter what, ad get the job done. Just solid.

Russian soldier- Do you have any impressions of the german leopard?
and are you holding a dragunov (SVD) or tiger varient? How do you feel they stack up to other designated marksman rifles?

Well the T-80 can also be argued that it's an upgraded T-72 scince it looks very similar.

No the T-80 is an upgraded T-64. The looks are similar due to Russian approach off making tank designs.
