Video showing serial conversion of T-90A to T-90M

Recommended Posts

This interesting video is showing T-90As being modernized to T-90M standards. So it has started. I Do not know if its the version Battlefront introduced in the game or the better one announced in the media which sports the new gun from the Armata and can fire the new Grifel round which is claimed to penetrate 900-1000mm at 2000 meters.

Looking at the video, when they install back the turret it seems to have a shiny and unpainted new gun compared to the T-90A we briefly see untouched at 0:08. So good chance its the new 2A82 that has way more muzzle velocity and can fire the greatly improved ammo Vacuum-1-2. Question is, at 900mm long , can they fit the needed autoloader in that turret ? Probably not. But still, the increased muzzle velocity if the gun could increase the penetration ability of the svinets-2 round by a fair margin.

It's 2A46M-something - 2A82 is much longer in barrel. They're quite distinguishable when T-90s stands next to Armatas. T-90's 360 deg "beauty parade" footage is from good ol' days when UVZ was pitching T-90s upgrade to the MoD. Back then it was a sole "cat walk" piece.
