Russia intends to resume serial production of new T-80 tanks, said Alexander Potapov, general director of the Uralvagonzavod concern. This decision was made after analyzing the experience of using the T-80. The initial version of the T-80 was mass-produced in the USSR from 1976 to 1978 at factories in Omsk and Kharkov; more than 10 thousand vehicles were produced. Until now, Uralvagonzavod has modernized the Soviet-built T-80. The main distinguishing feature of the T-80 tanks is the presence of a gas turbine engine. Also, the tank can be refueled with any fuel, diesel, gasoline and kerosene, the tank is easy to start at low temperatures. The decision to produce T-80 tanks was made after analyzing application experience. In the future, Russian T-80 tanks will be equipped with Arena-M active protection systems. The tank is already equipped with protection from drones using the Volnorez electronic warfare system. Now all tanks available in Russia are being upgraded to the T-80BVM level. The tanks are equipped with a multi-channel gunner's sight, a 125-mm cannon, a modified gas turbine engine with a capacity of up to 1,250 horsepower, a weapon stabilizer and a driver's observation device.
