The T-90 is a tier 7 Main Battle Tank originating from Russia, and is sold by Marat Shishkin. It can be unlocked from the T-72B, and leads to the T-90A.

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

Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

An upgrade to the T-72B after the collapse of the Soviet Union, the T-90 keeps with the pattern of high damage mobile MBTs, with the capability for light brawling. Once fully upgraded, the T-90 has the mobility and firepower to push flanks and can keep up with light tanks to spearhead a charge.

Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • Good hull armor
  • Good protection against HEAT and ATGMs
  • Overwhelming alpha and usable penetration
  • Good for hull-down tactics

Cons[edit | edit source]

  • Below-average HP
  • Poor turret armor around the gun
  • Very poor gun depression
  • Mediocre stock top speed and acceleration

Upgrade Suggestions[edit | edit source]

Upgrading to the V-92S2 Diesel Engine will greatly improve the poor stock mobility of the T-90, so this should be researched as early as possible. Firepower upgrades such as ammunition and modules are important in the long run, but should not be focused early due to their high research cost relative to mobility upgrades.

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

History[edit | edit source]

This Russian-designed main battle tank appeared as an update to the T-72B, offering overall improvement in offensive and defensive capabilities. Created as an economic alternative to supporting two separate main battle tanks, the T-90 entered production in 1993, and a total of 307 units were produced exclusively for Russia, with 1,500 variants being built for the domestic and export markets. Entering service in the mid-1990’s, the T-90 has seen combat in Eastern Europe. Currently, Russia has ceased domestic orders in preparation for the Armata Universal Combat Platform.
