Main Battle Tank
Intended to defeat armoured stationary and mobile enemy objects round the clock, as well as to support subunits of the Army on the march and in battle.
A necessary level of survivability of the tank is ensured by use of combined armour, built-in explosive reactive armour, fire-fighting system, as well as a system of protection against nuclear attack.
Decreased detectability of the tank is achieved by low silhouette, a possibility of self-entrenching and installation of a smoke screen laying system. The use of KMT-6 and KMT-7 treadway mine-clearing ploughs enables the tank to cross mined areas at a speed of up to 15 km/h.
