The Syrian military has deployed advanced Russian-made T-90 main battle tanks (MBTs) to western Aleppo, according to the video released on November 1.
T-90 MBTs were observed in the Minyan area where they were participating in operations against Jaish al-Fatah, a Jabhat al-Nusra-led coalition of militant groups.
Last weekend, elite units of the Syrian Army’s Tiger Forces and the Desert Hawks Brigade were deployed in Aleppo to counter the militants’ offensive operation to capture the al-Assad Military Academy and the nearby areas. Both formations operate T-90 MBTs supplied by Moscow over the last year.

In 2015, Russia delivered a batch of T-90 MBTs to the Syrian military in order to contribute to anti-terrorist operations across the country led by the Syrian Arab Army. In coming months, T-90 MBTs have showed themselves as an important factor at the Syrian battlefield. Let’s take a closer look at the Russian-made T-90 MBT.
