I just found some pictures of the T90MS. Do you have any info about this T90 variant ?

That's the production version of the T-90M prototype.

It gives the commander a thermal sight, GPS, and Relikt ERA along with other things.

As of January 2012, 95% of T-90s in the Russian ground forces were T-90 or T-90A, so the T-90MS is in very limited production.

Right now the main Russian battle tanks are still the T-90, T-90A and T-80U.

wow you sure know your military stuff, you even know the details of each tank. I just got a question do you know the reason why the T64 wasn't as mass produces as the T72 and witch of the two tanks are better.

Well the T-64 was definitely the better tank, but more expensive.

At that time, the Soviets favoured quantity over quality, so bought mass numbers of the cheaper T-72 instead of small numbers of the T-64 (due to cost).

You don't need to answer that but anyway do you just play WIC-MW or do you play any other games. Heaney if you like tanks then you should try World Of Tanks.

One of the other military games I play that is very very realistic is the ACE and ACRE mods for the game "Arma 2: Combined Operations".

You should try it.
