Another T-90 survives a missile hit in Syria

By J.Hawk

The news and photos of a Russian-made T-90 MBT following a direct hit by an anti-tank guided missile have been posted on a number of Russian news outlets and blogs. The tank’s frontal turret armor indicates it’s the newer T-90A with a welded turret and thicker frontal surfaces. The missile’s explosion clearly detonated at least one of the Kontakt-5 reactive armor panels and destroyed and damaged a number of surface fittings including the Shtora ECM system. The tank appears to have remained operational, though the gunner’s primary sight and thermal camera seem to have been damaged by the explosion. There are no additional details concerning where, when, and with what weapon the T-90A was attacked.
