The T-80B is a tier 6 Main Battle Tank originating from the Soviet Union, and is sold by Marat Shishkin. It can be unlocked from the T-80, and leads to the T-80U.

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

Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

Highly mobile and heavily armored, the T-80B, much like its tier 5 predecessor, is purpose built for flanking attacks. With strong turret armor and one of the best MBT accelerations in the game, it excels in fast maneuvers around enemy positions, which are impossible for most other thickly armored vehicles. Unlike its tier 6 counterparts, it does not have a substantial armor boost, but it makes up for this in mobility and firepower.

Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • High alpha damage
  • Good camo rating
  • Excellent mobility

Cons[edit | edit source]

  • Extremely high hull traverse can make precise turning hard
  • Mediocre gun depression
  • Poor hull armor for its tier

Upgrade Suggestions[edit | edit source]

The Kontakt-1 ERA Package offers a protection boost against ATGM and HEAT across the frontal half of the vehicle, so upgrading to this is a worthwhile early investment towards increasing survivability. Upgrading firepower through better ammunition and various modifications can heavily improve the effectiveness of flanking attacks into enemies, so it should be a primary focus as well.

Retrofit Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Advanced Muzzle Reference System
  • Augmented Optics
  • Improved Gun Breech
  • Improved Pioneer Tool Kit
  • Improved Spall Liner

Commander and Crew Skill Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Commander: Juan Carlos, to improve the aim speed and crew stats.
  • Driver: Spin to Win, Off-Road Driving
  • Gunner: Sharpshooter, Do the Twist

History[edit | edit source]

The T-80B and T-80BV were updates which were designed and implemented in the late 70’s and early 80’s, focused on improving the base T-80 model. These improvements included the addition of a new turret, laser rangefinder, fire-control, autoloader, and improved composite armor. Other improvements included a new gun and the installation of Kontakt-1 explosive reactive armor. They were applied to the T-80’s serving in the late Soviet army, but the tank never saw heavy combat during the lifetime of the Soviet Union. The only large-scale combat ever seen by the T-80 took place during 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.
