    Well, they can study the armour and determine at which ranges western APFSDS projectiles can penetrate it - provided that the ERA actually has explosives in it, and that the factory installed the main armour at all.

    There's probably nothing to learn from the electronics.

    It will all be memory-holed because the MIC doesn't want people to know "enemy #1" has been making "high tech" tanks out of tin cans and off-brand flex tape, thus concluding that all those expensive weapons are totally unnecessary.

    Pretty sure most tech in the T-90 is just reverse engineered from M60's and such. Soft data like comm's channels, weak points and enemy familiarization etc. is maybe useful, but any hardware I think will be inferior to contemporary western tech

      This T-90M actually has the PNM-T domestically produced sight.
      They also domesticated the parts for SOSNA-U
      So no, that sight in particular has nothing french in it.

      Except not. The unit's been identified as the domestic type the Russkies were clunking together after the French stopped selling to them in 2014.

        >le flying turret meme
        yeah sorry to tell you this anon but the tank isnt at fault for being hit by a javelin, its the crew for allowing the tank to be in a position to get destroyed
        I'd like to add that leopard 2, M1 abrams, challenger 2, all wouldn't fair well to a direct hit from a Javelin etc
        Sure the blow out panels on M1 and Leo 2 are great, and I'm not trying to denounce their importance.
        However direct hit from top attack ATGM, isn't gonna be nice for the crew...
        Also leo 2 still uses hull ammo and challenger 2 doesn't have any blow out panels, jus their shitty two piece ammo scattered everywhere
        basically a T-72B3M with a good crew will do the job just as well as M1A2, but Russian crews are dogshit so that will never happen.

          It's not a meme, it's the result of sitting on ammunition dear vatnikmoron, and changing the autoloader might fix it if the military leadership somehow valued the lives of the crews

              I'm pretty sure T-90M doesnt use armoured carousel, only spall lined. Either way I am shocked Russia hasn't developed blowout panels for the carousel on the floor. It actually should be quite possible if you are motivated enough with the design, which Russia clearly aren't. For example the abrams has 6 rounds stored in a bin behind the commander that are blow out paneled, and when hit the panels underneath the tank with blow off and release the explosion into the ground below the tank. That should be possible on the carousel loader, you just have to cover it and leave a gap where the new rounds come through to be reload the gun, if I am making sense.

                you would obviously have to create a new loading arm mechanism to close off the gap where rounds are fed though. Sorry if im talking retarded im not good at english
                Also picrel is the blow out panel on the bottom of M1 tank

                Maybe it has? I can't really find a lot details about T-90M carousel or other things. Maybe we will see some "review" soon. Or photos since it was captured.

                I just googled more.
                It has blowout panels but carousel is still horizontal like on T-72. The reverse speed is 15km/h and not 5km anymore.

                I think you got a bad source, because I'm pretty sure T-90M is still 4 km/h reverse. also it has blowout panels but only for the spare ammo in the turret basket. The ammo carousel is still normal just lined with aramid. a lot of people think because the blowout panels for the spare ammo on T-90M means all ammo is in blowout panel but its not the case.

                it uses the same V-92S2F on the T-72B3M with 1130hp.
                if you have sources for the new engine and transmission I'd like to see them though because it would be good if they finally addressed the transmission issue.

      Brother, I hate nu-PrepHole but this is literally a T-90M. Look at the Nakidka, look at the LWR ''eyes'' on either side of the mantlet, look at the commanders weapon station with remote controlled 12.7mm and CITV, the other images literally confirm its a T-90M.

    The most valuable part is probably how Relict works and designing an APFSDS to negate it's defeat mechanism.

    All Russian tanks rely heavily on ERA for protection against APFSDS, without ERA their armor has laughable protection to kinetic rounds.
