The T-80U is a tier 7 Main Battle Tank originating from the Soviet Union, and is sold by Marat Shishkin. It can be unlocked from the T-80B, and is currently the end of the T-80 branch in Armored Warfare.

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]

The T-80U is what veterans of the T-80 series have come to expect: a highly mobile flanker with a strong gun. What the T-80U adds to this formula is a very strong turret, which allows it to bounce multiple shots at once. However, its hull armor is much weaker than similar Tier 7 vehicles, making the T-80U unsuited for prolonged brawling.

Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • High alpha damage
  • Excellent mobility
  • Excellent turret armor

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]

Firepower and mobility are the two most important assets on the T-80U, so upgrades should focus on them. Better ammunition and module unlocks should be the primary focus. Upgrading to the GTD-1250 Gas Turbine provides a boost to the acceleration and maneuverability, allowing for more rapid threat response.

Retrofit Suggestions[edit | edit source]

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

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

Changes to the armor composition of both the insert and upper glacis, alongside ERA, result in a much-improved battlefield presence, as defense against HEAT-based targets is significantly improved.

History[edit | edit source]

The T-80U is the final culmination of Soviet upgrades to the T-80 platform, and features a number of upgrades and changes. These include a redesigned turret, gun, Kontakt-5 explosive reactive armor, and the addition of the Refleks ATGM. To help keep mobility high after the addition of new armor and other upgrades, a new engine was installed to compensate for the weight increase. They were applied to 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 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-80's serve in over half a dozen countries, with the largest fleets being owned by Russia, Pakistan, and Ukraine respectively.
