Description: The T-80 is a Main Battle Tank (MBT) designed to engage enemy armored vehicles, troops, fortifications and low-flying helicopters in day/night and all-weather conditions. It was developed on the basis of the T-64 tank. Its advanced fire control system jointly with the 125mm 2A46M smoothbore main gun ensure target kill with the first-round while the T-80 is on the move or stationary. To achieve improved survivability over preceding Soviet MBTs, the T-80 features multi-layer armor with integrated Explosive Reactive Armor (ERA) providing direct-hit and top-attack weapons protection. Low acoustic, visual, radar, and visual signatures also provide improved survivability to the T-80 MBT.

The T-80BVM is a further variant of the T-80BV main battle tank incorporating some improvements and new features introduced with the T-90MS tank. The Russian Armed Forces introduced the T-80BVM in September 2017. The upgraded tank features the Relikt Explosive Reactive Armor (ERA) and cage armor in several sections as well as rubber side skirts with built-in armor plates. The tank is powered by a GTD-1250TF gas turbine developing a power output of 1,250-hp and a top speed of 70 kilometers per hour. Besides, the T-80BVM features an auxiliary power unit (APU). The weapon system consists of a 2A46M 125mm smoothbore gun, a 12.7mm anti-aircraft cannon and a 7.62mm coaxial machine gun. The Russian Army plans could call for the upgrade of up to 3,000 gas powered T-80 tanks to the BVM standard to keep them in reserve. These tanks perform better than diesel powered tanks in extreme cold climate such as the Northern of Russia.
