The T-90A Burlak is a Tier 8 special premium Main Battle Tank under Marat Shishkin's dealership.

History[ | ]

Class: Main Battle Tank (Prototype)
Developed: 2005-2009
Service: N/A
Vehicles Built: 1
Operators: N/A

The Burlak (named after the famous pre-20th century river boat tuggers of Russia) was a 2005 to 2009 program by the KBTM design bureau in Omsk to develop a unified modern two-man combat module (turret), usable on multiple Russian Army MBTs, including the T-72, T-80 and T-90 series.

This turret included a new automatic loading mechanism that would feed the main gun from an ammo rack located (quite atypically) in the turret bustle. The entire mechanism was located in the turret in order to make sure the turret can be used on multiple hull types. Another interesting element, noticeable at first glance, was the interesting ERA design, placed in an opposite to the usual Russian designs such as the Kontakt-5. The ERA panels protrude outward from the turret from bottom to top rather than from top to bottom, creating a very distinctive look that’s difficult to mistake for any other design. This armor was also highly modular and easy to replace in combat, or even upgrade to more effective ERA designs that would come in the future. The ERA installed was a system called Kaktus, or some further development thereof.

At least one prototype was built and tested on a T-72B chassis in 2008 or 2009, even though it differed considerably from the previous renders and patents. This prototype did not have some of the envisaged parts and the APS layout was different. At that point, the project ran into serious difficulties. The Omsk design bureau, facing long-standing financial difficulties, would eventually be incorporated into Uralvagonzavod, which meant that UVZ had two more or less competing projects available at the same time – the results of the Burlak program and its own variants of the T-90M Proryv-2 development, specifically the T-90MS.

This MBT's front is protected by composite armor. Composite armor consists of combined layers of steel and other material and offers excellent protection against HEAT shells and ATGMs. Its steel sides and rear are considerably more vulnerable. The second generation ERA kit offers excellent protection against standard HEAT rounds or warheads, and marginal protection against kinetic rounds.
