     A press release by Omsktransmash JSC says that Omsktransmash mass-produced T-80B tanks and their modifications from 1979 to 1991. Throughout the entire period of production of military vehicles, the design of the T-80B tank was constantly being amended. The latest modification was the T-80BV, adopted by order of the Minister of Defense of the USSR in 1985.

     The T-80 BVM is a new version of the modernization of the T-80BV tank developed by Omsktransmash JSC, it provides an increase in its basic combat qualities: firepower, security, mobility and command controllability, further support of its life cycle by industrial enterprises.

     “The unique properties of a gas turbine engine give the T-80BVM an undeniable advantage when operating at low temperatures. The modernization of these machines was carried out efficiently, taking into account all the requirements of the customer, ”said Igor Lobov, Director General of Omsktransmash JSC.

     On the bmpd side, we recall that the Uralvagonzavod Scientific Industrial Corporation JSC on August 24, 2017 entered into a contract with the Russian Ministry of Defense to upgrade 62 T-80B tanks to T-80BVM level (with delivery of 31 units in 2018 and 2019).

    The 200th separate motorized rifle brigade was re-equipped with modernized T-80BVM tanks

    As the press service of the Northern Fleet reported on November 13, 2019, the tank battalion of the [200th] separate motorized rifle brigade of the Northern Fleet was completely re-equipped with modernized T-80BVM tanks.

    The tank battalion of a separate motorized rifle brigade of the Northern Fleet completed the rearmament of the T-80BVM tanks. The last batch of 26 combat vehicles, which underwent modernization at the Omsktransmash plant, entered the compound.

    The combat training of the personnel of the tank battalion in the new training period will already take place on new equipment. Tankers are ready for their operation, since they were trained on the T-80BVM of the previous batch, which entered the brigade in 2018.

    The T-80BVM tank is a new upgrade option for the T-80BVM, carried out according to the option of increasing the basic combat qualities of an armored car: firepower of security, mobility and command controllability.

    The tank is equipped with a modified gas turbine engine with a capacity of 1250 horsepower, which allows you to increase the driving performance and mobility of the machine in all landscapes and develop speeds of up to 70 km / h. The unique properties of a gas turbine engine give the T-80BVM an advantage when operating at low temperatures in the Far North and the Arctic.

    The combat vehicle is equipped with NSVT and PKT machine guns and a 125-mm gun, which has the ability to fire guided missiles. To control weapons, the Pine-U fire control system is used, which includes the sights of the commander and gunner with day and night channels, as well as with a laser range finder.

    During the modernization, the tanks received the Reflex guided weapon system, the use of which gives an advantage in increasing the firing range, as well as the ability to hit a tank or other protected enemy object at a distance of up to five kilometers.

    In addition to the armor, the tank’s crew protects the Relict modular dynamic defense system and the anti-cumulative trellis screen.

    On the bmpd side, we recall that the Uralvagonzavod Scientific Industrial Corporation JSC on August 24, 2017 entered into a contract with the Russian Ministry of Defense to upgrade 62 T-80B tanks to T-80BVM level (with delivery of 31 units in 2018 and 2019). Work on the modernization of T-80B tanks under this contract is carried out at Omsk Transport Engineering Plant JSC (part of the Uralvagonzavod Scientific Industrial Complex JSC Rostec State Corporation)

    Kantemirovskaya tank division received ten modernized T-80BVM tanks


    As reported by the press service of the Western Military District, the [4th Guards] Kantemirovskaya Tank Division of the [1st] Guards Tank Army of the Western Military District is being re-equipped with T-80BVM tanks. The unit received a batch of 10 combat vehicles, which were modernized.

    On August 2, 2020, at the Alabino training ground, a ceremonial transfer of military equipment and a zeroing took place, the first live fires from all tank weapons will be held next week. Tankers are ready for their operation, since they were trained on the T-80BVM of the previous batch, which was received earlier by the connection ( photo gallery from August 1).

    As a result of the modernization, all the main characteristics of this tank have been increased: firepower, security, mobility, command control. The firing range of all types of ammunition has been increased during the day, at night and in conditions of limited visibility. All-round protection of the vehicle against modern anti-tank weapons is provided. Reduced fuel consumption when the gas turbine engine is parked with the fire control system turned on.

    The weight of the combat vehicle is 46 tons. It includes the installation of a gunner's multi-channel sight, a 125-mm cannon, a modified gas turbine engine with a capacity of up to 1250 horsepower, an armament stabilizer and a driver's observation device. To protect against enemy fire, the tank is equipped with anti-cumulative lattice screens and a complex of modular dynamic protection. The chassis has been improved.

    On the part of bmpd, recall that on August 24, 2017, Uralvagonzavod Scientific and Production Corporation JSC signed a contract with the Russian Ministry of Defense to upgrade 62 T-80B tanks to the T-80BVM level (with delivery of 31 units in 2018 and 2019). Modernization of T-80B tanks under this contract is being carried outat JSC Omsk Plant of Transport Engineering (part of JSC NPK Uralvagonzavod, State Corporation Rostec).

    In fact, the first battalion set of modernized T-80BVM tanks (31 tanks) under this contract entered in 2019 to re-equip the tank battalion of the 200th separate motorized rifle brigade of the Northern Fleet. The second battalion set, apparently in 2020, will be transferred to the 4th Guards Kantemirovskaya tank division, which by now, obviously, taking into account the transferred on August 2, has already received 20 tanks.

    They said they are 1.5 times more expensive to operate than t-72/90. Back in the time they were better than t72 but with modern upgrades they offer nothing more than the two other.

    The advantage is that modernizing one of them is less expensive than building a brand new t-90M. They also have better mobility than t-72.

    They will be the first to be phased out once the time comes to remove some tanks for the new t-14.

    Simple cammo similar to what was done with t-72B3. I don't know why they didn't do that long before, it's pretty simple to hide a tank from recon planes or UAVs with this. It is lesson learned directly from Syria where they use similar tactics and russians have seen the effectiveness with their own UAVs there and probably had hard time spotting such tanks and now use it on their own tanks.

    They don't add 20 tons of armor on all their vehucles like the US after Iraq/Afghan wars.

    T-80s will continue to fill a niche role in specialised theaters like the Arctic on account of their GT engine. They will be more than adequate in that role given the likely threat environment, and I can't see the Russian military wasting funds to develop a new tank for the purpose.
