    Really nice picture.

    The bigger "pipe" is the wind sensor

    Can someone tell me what these sensors are ???

    There is no information about them on the internet -

    Some of these are not there on the Armata either.

    Interesting stuff.

    The thin rod should be an antenna. The short mast with a cylinder on the top may be the antenna for GLONASS/Navstar receiver.

    And what do you think about the dome shaped structure on the 'ambient sensor' rod ??

    The dome pointing forward in the picture is not a sensor; it is the back of the night visual identification light, maybe LED-based. I'll try to find a picture.


    Edit—Found a few:

    It's lit red in this one.

    In this, it shows the identification mask on it (shows 01).

    This comes as no surprise. This is what happens when you privatize a defense company, especially the only one that makes this specific type of aystem in your country when the competition is dead.  Wish Omsk plant still produces tanks and upgrades....

    Question, several pages back in the Armata thread someone mentioned about T-90s problems when moving backwards which presents problems especially in urban warfare, is this issue addressed in the latest T-90 models?

    If you mean reverse shifts of only one then yes, the problem exists in T-90 (1992) aswell in T-90A (2004) fixed in T-90SM with automatic gearbox and three shifts backwards like most tanks (iirc). This is considered the biggest problem of T-90 and not just urban warfare but it is always bad to have such vital systems being not updated rapidly since mobility is the key to operational combined arms mobile forces success.

    T-90 Main Battle Tank - Page 30 Empty Are Russian T-90 Tanks Outsmarting US-Made TOWs?

    In the battle for Aleppo in Syria where Sunni rebel forces are in retreat is the role played by Russian T-90 tanks which is claimed to be getting better of the Saudi-supplied tube-launched, optically-tracked, wireless-guided (TOW) Weapon System.

    The TOW anti-tank missiles, made by US firm, Raytheon are understood to have been the main rebel weapons against the Syrian army's T-52 and T-72 tanks and BMP armored vehicles. Sunni militia websites have several photos and videos showing TOW missiles pulverizing the older generation Russian-supplied Syrian tanks.

    However, Russia is understood to have supplied the latest generation T-90 tanks which are equipped with reactive armor capable of holding out against the deadly explosive power of the TOW missiles, Russian media reported over the last few days.

    In addition, these tanks have sensors which can track the missile the moment it locks on to the tank and take evasive action which includes throwing a smoke screen around the tank or taking electronic counter-measures to jam the lock-on system of the missiles.

    The surprisingly agile T-90 tanks can take offensive action by turning and firing at the threat in a matter of seconds.

    Some Turkish and Syrian news outlets have reported about T-90 tanks being supplied to Damascus since November 2015. Some images have also surfaced of the T-90 tanks bearing Syrian flags in the thick of battle in Syria.

    The offensive by President Bashar al-Assad's regime is understood to have turned the tide against rebels in the north particularly around Aleppo, Syria's largest city, which has been partly controlled by Sauci-backed Sunni rebels since 2012.

    Yep hit the Gunner position from about 1200/1500m. The Gunner escaped, no aftermath, no cooking. Allegedly not the first time the T90 recieves ATGM love.

    Once again Syrian tankers have big issues with their tools. The Gunner should have seen the ATGM and movement on thermal and it was well within range.

    There's 5 seconds between launch and impact.

    Tow max velocity= 240m/s. Well within fire enveloppe and in front of the tank. Also Shtora was off. Tank looks OK.

    Probably the open gunner's hatch during the explosion gave him a concussion.

    Looks like the Shtora was offline. No pressure discharge (smoke) through the cannon barrel - therefore no armor penetration. Second layer of protection did its job.

    Keeping the hatch open and consequently Shtora offline negates one of the most important advantages of T-90 over T-72. Not a wise thing to do with ATGM equipped enemy less than several km away.
