    The Russians use two types of ploughs... the KMT-7 is a roller plough and weighs 7.5 tons. The KMT-8 uses a blade and weighs 1 ton.

    The KMT-10 is used on light vehicles like BMPs and uses a blade system and weighs 450kg.

    T-90AM does not exist yet, but if MOD orders T-90MS, it will be in the army-modified T-90AM form.

    If that makes sense Very Happy

    So in other words the T-90MS is the Ka-62 which will be modified and transformed into the initially planned Ka-60  Very Happy

    afaik there may not be a T-90MA- Armatas are just around the corner anyway(next year) so even if they finished developing one now production would jusst coincide with the new tanks. Good for supplementing numbers yes, but Kurg and Boomerang can do fill that role more efficiently

    Literally... both are upgraded T-90 tanks... the AM was to be the upgraded domestic model with lots of secret stuff likely developed for the Armata program and not for export, while the T-90MS is the for export model upgraded as far as they could without starting from scratch.

    But the T-90MS also have the new improved Gun that could carry longer projectiles for bigger punching power? or only the domestic version? and how about Arena also supported?

    The domestic model (AM) is better equipped than the export model (MS), so when they talk about the export model having a longer higher pressure main gun with new autoloader allowing longer projectiles you can be sure the AM has that as well.

    It will also likely have the early models of new systems the Armata/kurganets/boomerang/typhoon MBT will be getting too.

    Also while you cant get much length out of the current autoloader(740mm max), the metallurgy of penetrators and the chemistry of
    the propellants must have improved substantially since mango- it may not bust the latest western and russian tank but anything
    that advanced is never in numbers anyway that is till armata shows up in numbers.

    He got it stuck, he had to make it unstuck.

    Deep pits of mud are not fun when you have to navigate them with the hatch open.

    IR camouflage... it worked for Arnie in Predator...

    Looks like he had to get out and push...   Very Happy

    Tho if its really effective against thermals and maybe radar, rolling in mud pools would be a valid tactic. It would be the new hull-down.

    How does this happen?

    My friend... after a bit of rain even the hardest dirt that has a division of tanks and armoured vehicles roll over it becomes very soft. Choke points like near gates become particularly soft with heavy vehicles churning up the dirt deeper and deeper as more vehicles pass.

    the threat of getting stuck... and even the lightest most mobile vehicle occasionally gets stuck BTW, is rather greater than being targeted by enemy forces.

    I doubt mud would be effective against radar as radar will pass straight through it and hit the armour and bounce back through the mud to the radar antenna... there is a reason for kits like Nakidka... if mud worked there would be no need for such kits.

    Good thing for the new brigades, each vehicle can pull each other out, no need for pulling back engineer vehicles or MBTs just to tow a stuck vehicle.

    In the new brigades each vehicle should have the same mobility as the others but two cables are always handy... even the best cross country vehicle can get stuck.

    dunno bout numbers, but maybe T-72B with relikt and panoramic sights could be counted as T-90 equivalent too.
