Battlefield, is the place where heroes gather and the paradise on earth of warriors.
Russia is called a fighting nation. Russian people’s strong bodies and excellent weapons are their advantages on the battlefield.
Since 1928, the predecessor of Russia, the Soviet Union, developed MS-1/T-18 based on the French FT-17 tank, and then its eye-catching tank industry started; T-55 and T-64 were outstanding products. However, in 1991, the Soviet Union collapsed and Russia which inherited its legacy suffered from serious economic shock. They had to give up the costly T-80, and turned to “ Improved T-72B” - T-90. T-90 entered service in the Russian Ground Forces in 1992. It is equipped with a large caliber smoothbore gun which can launch missiles, auxiliary machine guns and an automatic fire control system; it is mounted with Russian Shtora (“curtain” in English) combined electro-optical countermeasures suite to protect the tank against laser guided weapons; and it is also fitted with a NBC protection system. T-90, as the new generation main battle tank for Russia at that time, in total about 120 T-90 MBTs were produced. They had been gradually replaced by more advanced T-90A before they saw battles.
