    Military units of the Air Defense Forces on the Kuril Islands received modernized T-80BV tanks


    TASS, January 11. Military units of the Eastern Military District (VVO) in the Kuril Islands received a batch of modernized T-80BV tanks, which are called "flying" due to technical features, the district's press service reported on Tuesday.

    "In 2021, a batch of modern modernized T-80BV tanks entered service with the military units of the army corps of the Eastern Military District (VVO) stationed in the Kuril Islands. A distinctive feature of the T-80 family tanks is a single gas turbine power plant, for which it was named" flying "tank" - said in the message.

    This car is capable of accelerating to speeds of over 70 km / h. The technique has proven itself well when operated in extreme arctic conditions, which largely corresponds to the harsh winters of the island region. In addition, due to the installed modern equipment, including multi-channel gunner sights, weapon stabilizers, observation devices, radio stations, as well as modular dynamic protection, the effectiveness of the use of tank units in solving combat training tasks is significantly increased.

    Before the arrival of modern combat vehicles in the compound, tank crews mastered the equipment on simulators, and after its introduction into operation, practical driving exercises were carried out with control firing.
