About the T-90MS Tagil - Main Battle Tank:
An upgrade on the T-90, the T-90MS Tagil is the current main battle tank produced by the Russian Federation. This variant features several updates in targeting technology, armor, and crew protection. Like many modern tanks, it strives to combine firepower, armor, and speed into a small package. Featuring a protected auto-loader cassette in the hull floor and speeds up to 35 mph (60 km/h), the Tagil is an excellent armored contender in 21st-century warfare.
At first glance, what sets the Tagil apart from its predecessors is the turret. Ammunition storage scattered around the crew compartment was the main cause of fires in the T-72 tank. Ten rounds of ammunition are now stored in a new protected bustle on the back of the turret instead of inside the crew compartment. Like other modern MBTs, the Tagil is equipped with rangefinders and machine guns that can be operated from inside the tank, reducing risk to the crew. It also deploys reactive armor and can be outfitted with an urban survival package.
Fairly new (2011) in design, the Tagil has seen combat in the Syrian Civil War, although not much is known about its effectiveness in the conflict.
