The T-80BVM is a modification of a T-80 tank – the first-ever battle tank with reactive armor. Russia’s T-80 tank, in turn, is highly appreciated by military and defense experts across the globe.
The crew of the Russian T-80BVM tank destroyed a group of ten Ukrainian militants who looked to reconnoiter the forward positions of the Russian Army in the north of DPR.
“We got the coordinates, the target was enemy manpower, up to 10 people. Literally, in 15 minutes we drove up to a closed firing position, fired eight shells, there was a hit,” the tank crew commander nicknamed Khan told Sputnik.
The military specialist alleged that the enemy wanted to conduct reconnaissance by force, to probe Russia’s combat ability, but was destroyed.
