The T-80 is a tier 5 Main Battle Tank originating from the Soviet Union, and is sold by Marat Shishkin. It can be unlocked from the T-64A mod. 1969, and leads to the T-80B.

Features[edit | edit source]

  • Heavy armor: this vehicle's armor bounces more shots and takes more hits
  • High caliber: the high caliber weaponry deals an increased damage
  • Gas Turbine : provide a smoother acceleration, compared to an ordinary diesel
  • Smoke Generators : generated a smoke screen around the vehicle

Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

Highly mobile and heavily armored, the T-80 is a tank purpose built for flanking attacks. With heavy turret armor and one of the best accelerations on any MBT in the game, it excels in fast maneuvers around enemy positions that are impossible for most other heavily armored vehicles. However, it does not sacrifice armor for mobility, and having relatively high armor for its tier. These two characteristics make it one of the most devastating vehicles at its tier.

Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • High alpha
  • Excellent turret armor

Cons[edit | edit source]

History[edit | edit source]

Developed as a replacement for the T-64, the T-80 started as the T-64T, which amounted to little more than a T-64 with a gas turbine engine installed. Through a number of further modifications, the T-80 became a tank in its own right in 1976, forming a large part of the late Soviet Army. The only large-scale combat ever seen by the T-80 took place in the First Chechen War in 1994, where the T-80 suffered heavy losses, due to a combination of inexperienced crews and poor tactical decisions. Currently, updated T-80s serve in over half a dozen countries, with the largest fleets being owned by Russia, Pakistan, and Ukraine respectively.
