The Russian army has received the first batch of upgraded T-80BVM main battle tanks (MBTs) from JSC Omsk Transport Machine-Building Plant (Omsktransmash), a subsidiary of Rostec's Uralvagonzavod corporation, the plant's spokesperson announced on 31 October, without specifying numbers.

Omsktransmash director general Igor Lobov said that the upgraded T-80BVM had received a reinforced protection suite comprising modular explosive reactive armour (ERA), a new gunner's sight, and an upgraded fire-control system. The tank is powered by a multifuel gas-turbine engine with improved fuel efficiency and carries ERA side screens and bar-slat armour.[

"We will rest! We'll hear angels, we'll see all sky in diamonds, we'll see how all earthly evil, all our sufferings drown in the mercy that will fill the whole world, and our life will become quiet, tender, sweet as a caress."
