It is reported that two years ago, the Russian T-90S tanks and France, Germany, the United States in a similar product has not yet revealed the name of the Arab countries, the real test, the test results be disclosed until now. Russia’s Rosoboronexport delegation quarter grams of rice for a long time that the main battle tanks in some countries two years ago, an Arab country in the harsh climatic conditions of real combat test. Russian T-90S tanks began to experiment Shihai sudden, a joke, the test sponsor to ask why Russia is only transported to a tank, they are thought experiments in this harsh and will certainly damage the tank, but this car tanks without any failure. Quarter grams of rice for a long time, said: “We teach them two days of driver and mechanic in the tank within 10 days of traveling 1,300 kilometers, and not just in the desert, still dusty areas, the mountains at night. Test side at night seal up the tank, let us in there for any minor repairs. After the test, remove the engine to view their demands. remove, and found oil inside the oil spill not a little. T-90S also use various types of ammunition the shooting, when asked a range of 3 km over the limit where the use of weapons, even under these conditions, also hit a target of 60%, while France also participated in the test tank Luck Lake, German Leopard tanks and the U.S. M-1 Abrams tanks, failed to withstand such a test. “
in answer to why the Arab countries there has been no procurement of Russian T-90S tank problems, quarter grams of rice for a long time stressed next thing is a political issue, and tank performance has nothing to do.
main battle tanks in the world exporting countries has a strong position in Russia, between 2006 and 2009 were of foreign supply of 482 new tanks, totaling $ 1.57 billion, exceeding the supply of the United States and Germany.

In recent years, Russia and Algeria signed a supply contract for T-90S tanks, plans to export 185. Turkmenistan also exports to 10.
but Russian experts point out that compared to European and American main battle tank, T-90S tanks, the performance is not good. The first T-90S has been aging, it uses the “curtain” is mainly used for optical protection system against the second-generation anti-tank missiles, is not active third-generation missile opponents. New Active Protection System “Arena” has resulted in the same defects, it is difficult to resist the microwave weapons attacks and can not fight and sub-caliber high-explosive shaped charge. More importantly, T-90S tank top virtually undefended, is unfit for participation in combat operations under modern conditions, after all, a lot can be developed abroad to aircraft, missiles and artillery cluster as the carrier of the high-precision guided munitions, which can easily destroy the tank from the top of the effective armored vehicles.
