Russia is creating new military units and sending T-90 tanks to the Western Military District as a caveat to NATO’s actions, Russian media write. According to Russian experts, the T-90 Proryv is in no way inferior to the T-14 Armata. BulgarianMilitary.com recalls that the T-14 Armata project is at a standstill. Only about 20 tanks were produced in the last two years. This tank is considered the best in the world, but in reality, it has neither combat experience nor information about the results of conducted tests.

In Russia, they believe that the T-90 Proryv is the most advanced Russian weapon in the field of heavy combat armored vehicles. According to Russian media, the T-90 Proryv surpasses many products of foreign countries. However, they (the media) do not say exactly which products are “defeated” by the T-90 Proryv.

Delivery days ago

Just about a week ago, on September 10, Russia acquired a new batch of T-90 Proryv tanks. UralVagonZavod released a press release saying “an entire echelon of new T-90M Proryv tanks and BREM-1M engineering vehicles” have been delivered to the Russian army. In Russia, one echelon equals an entire train set.

New productions

Despite the economic sanctions imposed by 30 countries against Russia, UralVagonZavod plans to expand its production, especially in the field of repair works.

As BulgarianMilitary.com has repeatedly written, at least two such plants will be opened in the regions around Moscow and Rostov. One of the main reasons, of course, is the war in Ukraine and the inability of Russian mobile repair brigades to carry out quality hardware repairs in field conditions.

However, there are problems

Despite the deliveries that UralVagonZavod the condition of the plant is not good. The supposedly good condition of the plant is a misleading and wrong impression.

Economic sanctions have cut off Russia’s access to Western technology, most notably integrated circuits and chips. UralVagonZavod has been dogged by domestic lawsuits, mostly over unfulfilled orders for civilian railcars and trains.

At the same time, because of the war in Ukraine, companies are shortening their working hours. This comes as an order from the Kremlin. Thus, according to the latest information, the eight-hour working day turns into twelve hours, which will be paid additionally. At the same time, various factories published decisions that whoever wanted to work more than 12 hours a day would not be stopped.
