Omsktransmash launched the production of the T-80 main battle tank in the 1970s. Its upgrade will boost its operational capabilities.

Experts argue that during the upgrade, the T-80 tank will receive the Sosna-U multichannel sight with a laser rangefinder, a thermal imager and an automatic target tracker.

Besides, the vehicle’s fuel consumption will be significantly reduced. Earlier, the tank with a gas-turbine engine consumed more than 7.5 liters of fuel per kilometer in certain operational conditions.  The T-80U main battle tank has a weight of 46.5 tons, a maximum road speed of 70 km/h (43.5 mph), a maximum cross-terrain speed of 40-45 km/h (25-28 mph) and a fuel endurance of 500 kilometers (311 miles) and its crew totals three. The tank is powered by the 1,250 hp three-shaft GTD-1250 gas-turbine engine.
