T-90M is equipped with a new combat tower module with a powerful 125-mm tank cannon, which provides the use of new high-power ammunition, as well as a guided missile that can destroy enemy tanks at a distance up to 5 km. The security of the vehicle was significantly increased, the internal booked volume was increased, which made it possible to accommodate newly introduced equipment and improve the working conditions of the crew.
