As follows from the documents of the 38th Scientific Research Testing Institute of Armored Weapons and Equipment (NII BTVT), this system suppresses radio channels for controlling mines and improvised explosive devices.
“In order to further increase the survivability of the T-72B3M and T-80BVM tanks on the battlefield, it is proposed to equip them with the Lesochek electronic warfare system,” the materials say.
On September 28, it became known that the T-90M tank, in the course of further modernization, could receive an improved complex of active protection “Arena-M”.
At the same time, according to experts, for the period up to 2025, the modernized T-72B3M, T-80BVM and T-90M will maintain parity with the main battle tanks of foreign countries in terms of their capabilities and effectiveness. However, after 2025, the modernization of Russian tanks will need to continue.
