Russia’s export-centered T-90S fell into hands of Ukrainian Soldiers

A Russia’s T-90S tank, which was originally meant for export, has been captured by Ukrainian troops.

Multiple photos of the captured T-90S, which is the export version of the T-90 in service with the Russian army, were published on social media.

T-90S is made for export customers, potentially including Algeria, India, Turkmenistan and Vietnam.

As noted by the Russian state arms export agency Rosoboronexport, the T-90S is an advanced version of the T-series of Russian tanks, offering increased firepower, mobility and protection and it is designed for the export market.

On top of that, the Ukraine Weapons Tracker OSINT group posted a picture of what it says is the first loss of a T-90S tank.

“The first loss of a Russian T-90S, a type originally intended for export, has been spotted,” the OSINT group said in a Twitter post.
