The Armed Forces of Ukraine captured Russia's ultra-modern T-90M Proryv tank for the first time

The Ukrainian Defense Forces have been reinforced with an advanced Russian T-90M "Proryv" tank (translated as Breakthrough). It was captured in the Kharkiv region.

Here's What We Know

A Ukrainian tanker, who has a YouTube channel Shawshank Redemption, published several photos of the captured tank. Later, he added a video of the transportation of the fighting vehicle. Interestingly, it is being towed by a T-72B3 tank, which was also taken from the Russians.

T-90M "Propyv" received the "Nakidka" complex, which consists of several covers made of radio-absorbing material. Right now there is no information about the condition of the Russian army's super new fighting vehicle. But one of the photos shows that the tank has lost a track. It is possible that specialists will be able to repair it, and very soon it will fight against the Russians in the ranks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Flashback

The T-90M "Proryv" is the newest Russian tank among those used in the war against Ukraine. There are more modern models, but they exist only to participate in military exhibitions. The first tanks entered service with the russian army in 2020.

Their use of the T-90M "Proryv" in Ukraine became known back in mid-spring. They are based on the T-90, which is an upgrade of the T-72. "Proryv" has a new turret and a powerful engine. The tank also received a dynamic protection system "Relikt" and anti-shock shields.
