    Baseline export MS doesnt even have Shtora, so no, no APS comes as standard on it. However it can be fitted with Shtora and Arena-E on customers request. But this is i belive Arena-E which was updated somewhere in 2011-2012. or so and offered for export.

    15 March 2017 MIKHAIL NEKRASOV

    Russia has completed the transfer of equipment to India for enabling production.


    Tecmash, a Rostec group company and Russia's largest manufacturer of ammunition, has completed the transfer of the main part of the equipment needed for licensed production of the Mango shells for T-90 tanks in India, Tecmash Chief Executive Sergey Rusakov told TASS on Mar. 15.

    Tecmash has also finished training Indian specialists for the production of the Mango shell in the country, Rusakov said.

    Mango shells are feathered armour-piercing projectiles for 125 mm calibre tank guns. Production of the shells was launched in the USSR in 1983. They were put into service in 1986.

    The contract for the licensed production of Mango shells in India was signed in 2014.

    T-90 tanks in Indian Army - Page 5 Empty India's Home-Made Breathing Apparatus to Enable 45-min Deep Fording of T-90

    Post  Pinto on Wed Sep 19, 2018 5:55 pm

    The apparatus will enable T-90 tank crews to conduct deep fording for at least 45 minutes. State-owned defense lab DRDO is expected to transfer the technology to the private sector for mass production, following which they will be made available to the army starting 2019.

    Why not more modern shells instead of this 30 years old thing. Only 450mm at 2000m penetration.

    3VBM19/3BM42M (3BM44M "Lekalo") with 650 mm at 2000m according to wiki or svinets-2 with 720mm at 2000m are much better and more usefull.

    I rather suspect the question was... what are they prepared to sell, what do they actually need for the threats they face... and how much each option costs...

    Sounds like they just want to get the tank into service with an AP round made domestically so no one can prevent supplies during war time...

    Well those shells are made of tungsten so there isn't lot of differences between them for production. Maybe russians wants to keep selling them the expensive ones while they give them the old one to produce at home.

    Government of India approved the purchase of 464 T-90MS tanks for the Indian Army

    According to Jane's Defense Weekly magazine in an article by Rahul Bedi "India’s Cabinet Committee on Security approves procurement of 464 T-90MS tanks", in early April 2019, the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS), headed by the Prime Minister Minister of India Narendra Modi, approved the purchase for the Indian army of 464 Russian T-90MS tanks in the amount of 134.48 billion rupees (1.93 billion dollars). The corresponding contract with Rosoboronexport JSC must be signed by the Indian Ministry of Defense "within a few months."

    Earlier in November 2016, the Defense Acquisition Council of the Indian Ministry of Defense decided to acquire 464 T-90MS tanks, which were now finally approved by the Indian government.

    The officers of the Indian army told the author of the article that these tanks should be assembled at the Indian state tank factory Heavy Vehicles Factory (HVF) in Avadi from vehicle sets supplied by the Russian Uralvagonzavod Scientific Industrial Corporation (UVZ). T-90MS are planned to be equipped with ten tank regiments of the indian army.

    According to statements by officers of the Indian Army, the planned return to the assembly of tanks from Russian vehicle sets for HVF is associated with low rates of full-scale licensed production of T-90S tanks there. To date, the HVF plant has built only 350 to 400 T-90S tanks (Bhishma) under a Russian-Indian license agreement of 2006 providing for the release of 1,000 T-90S tanks in Avadi by 2020. The first ten T-90S licensed tanks manufactured for HVF were transferred to the Indian Army in August 2009.

    Earlier, under the contracts of 2001 and 2007, the plant in Avadi more successfully assembled 409 T-90S tanks from vehicle sets supplied from Russia with UVZ (another 248 T-90S tanks were supplied ready to India by UVZ).
