    Russian T-72B3's and T-90A's to receive further upgrading in their fire control system with Armata abilities being retrofitted,

    "Russian main battle tanks T-72 and T-90 will receive the latest electronic components of the fire control system of tank "Armata" automatic target tracking (ASC) and the computer unit (WB), allowing almost with absolute precision to destroy the enemy military equipment first shot even in conditions of zero visibility.
    ASC allows the gunner-operator simply point at an enemy tank sight and press the special button. Automatic accompaniment will independently monitor the enemy object, turning the tower after his movement and lifting-lowering the gun of the tank. In turn, the WB, analyzing the various options, ranging from the speed and direction of movement of the combat vehicle and ending with the weather conditions and the state of the gun barrel, calculates the optimum parameters of the shot so that the first shell is guaranteed to destroy the target."

    Shevchenko confirmed Uralvagonzavod’s announcement that it has delivered more than 1,000 T-72B3 tanks. He also indicated that the MOD will receive 300 improved T-72B3. The improved T-72B3, he says, will have a better engine and better defensive and targeting systems.

    Some number of Russian T-90 tanks nearing the end of their service lives will be modernized under the “Proryv-3” program, according to the GABTU chief. The resulting tank is supposed to be superior to the original T-90.

    Sosna-U on B3

    Seems auto tracking was solved by locking it on the highest contrast detail on targets hull, which could end up as an issue in some cases.
