The T-90 main battle tank of the Russian Federation has one unique feature, which is special infrared projectors that protect against anti-tank missiles. These devices are installed on the sides of the turret and play an important role in combat operations.

To date, ATGM is probably the most effective weapon in the confrontation against armored vehicles. Therefore, engineers in the development of steel machines pay much attention to the means of protection against this type of weapon. They constantly create special complexes that protect tanks from various types of damage from anti-tank weapons.

The T-90 has several dynamic defenses in its arsenal: active and passive. The designers also developed additional steel sheets, special cumulative protection screens and infrared searchlights. Active protection is represented by "Curtains". This is a curtain of aerosols launched by a tank that sends an enemy missile into the wrong path, hiding the vehicle itself. This system consists of two parts. The first organizes and gives false signals, and the second exposes an aerosol curtain that hides the real location of the target from the launched missile.

If enemy ammunition is directed to the heat of equipment, then infrared searchlights that are installed on the T-90 can handle such weapons without any problems. The presented protection system forms a certain field, where, when a missile hits it, it loses all reference points and goes along a false route. The ATGM operator will be lucky if he only hits the body of a steel machine. In this case, you can hope for damage to the tank. If the rocket explodes near vehicles, no damage will be done to it.

To summarize, we can say with confidence that the T-90 can withstand all modern anti-tank weapons of any modification. These include even the notorious American Javelins, which are considered the world's most advanced weapon against tanks.
