    T-90S tanks of the armed forces of Uganda

    On the page on twitter.com of Uganda's President Yoweri Kagut Museveni, a photo was posted of the president's visit to the Uganda ground and air defense joint exercises at the Kalama Armoured Warfare Training School (KAWATS) of the Uganda People's Defense Force in Kabamba near Mubene on July 23, 2017. The photo shows the T-90S tanks of the Uganda People's Defense Force. This is the first known published photo of T-90S tanks in Uganda.

    Also in the picture are T-72B tanks and Chinese tanks of type 85-IIM. The receipt of Uganda-type tanks 85-IIM had not previously been reported.

    In 2016, Uganda also received from Russia an unknown quantity (up to 60 units) of T-72B tanks from the availability of contracts for the purchase of Russian weapons, concluded in 2015, under the latest package.
