T-90 main battle tank made of concrete erected in Vietnam

Vietnamese tankers creating a full-scale concrete T-90 main battle tank.

Chinese social media Weibo users posted footage showed that Vietnamese tankers with his own hands have built the first-ever monument of a Russian-made T-90 tank.

The interesting thing is the new monument fully made from concrete.


An unusual monument was built by servicemen of the 201st brigade of the Vietnamese People’s Army in their unit. It became the world’s first monument to a Russian tank of this type.

It is worth mentioning that Vietnam has operated 64 T-90S third-generation main battle tanks delivered from Russia in 2019.

The People’s Army of Vietnam has received the first batch of T-90S main battle tanks (MBTs) from Russia in January, 2019.

In July 2017, the Russian News Agency TASS has announced that Russian Company Uralvagonzavod will supply 64 T-90S/SK main battle tanks to Vietnam.

The T-90S tanks are likely to be used as replacements for the aging T-55s, few of which remain operational.
