Disappointing performance of Russian Tanks during Army Forum 2020

Russian sources talk about the catastrophic results of the accuracy of the fire of some of its main tanks during the last military parade at the Army Forum 2020. Out of the 16 guided projectiles that were launched from different Russian tanks, only 8 hit their targets. Operations and launch conditions were more than perfect as the targets were stationary and so were the tanks. The reasons for the failure are unknown, but for the missile used in the shooting operations, it was the type Refleks or the NATO AT-11 (sniper), which is the legitimate successor to the previous system 9K112 Cobra that was equipping the T-64B and T-80B tanks. The operational range of the Refleks missile ranges between 100-5000 m, and it travels in 17 seconds, the TOW missile travels its maximum range of 3.750 m in 22 seconds.

The results of the Refleks guided missile launch were as follows:

-The T-90A tank
: At the 14th minute, the tank fired a missile that hit the ground before reaching the target. Another missile was launched, but no results appeared. It appears that it also failed to hit its target. The third attempt hit the target. Two missed out of three launches.

-T-80U: At 36:20 the barrel of the cannon was shaking badly. When the tank fired the missile at the stationary target in the minute 37:02, the missile flew upward.
The second missile again behaved similarly. The third missile hit the target. Two mistarget out of three launches.

-The T-80UE-1 tank: in the 16:45 minute, the first missile missed the target and ascended, while the subsequent two missiles succeeded in hitting their targets thus, the result is one miss out of three releases
- The T-72B3 tank: At the minute 53:35, the tank fired four missiles, all of which hit their targets.

-The tank T-80BVM: In the minute 1:11:10, the first shot missed the target, the second was not shown, and the third missed the target and hit the bushes.

-The final result: out of 16 shots, only 8 were successful. This brings the total accuracy rate to an ~50%.

Issue lies with poor quality control, cutting corners, and no preventive maintenance.

They seem more interested in unveiling new systems rather than perfecting what they already have

Maintanence comes out of their own pocket.But when they make a new system they hope someone buys it and give them money that they'll use to make new stuff and repeat.Its a never ending cycle.

on the other hand BMP performance is quite good, check out how it goes right through this wall, that concrete may as well be paper.

That was really bad. Are these missiles being fired or standard APFSDS rounds? They do have a flare at the back to trace them.
