Who is the T90 . tank




Brief

The T-90 is a Russian battle tank combining the structure of the T-72 and the electronics of the T-80 . It should have been called T-72BU but a political decision renamed it T-90 following the mass destruction of T-72 during the Gulf War 1 . The T-90 was declared fit for service in 1992 and mass production for the Russian military began in 1994.
