Also serial technique: T-90 and T-72 are not forgotten. At the international military-technical forum “Army-2018” the model of the main battle tank with the advanced “Arena-E” complex was demonstrated. From habitual earlier version it is different by modules with antennas, which are carried around the tower and they got the elevated level of protection. The same applies to containers with damaging elements. Wherein constructors could create twofold protection from one direction.

In the result of modern version the Russian complex of active protection in automatic mode can destroy not only antitank guided missile or ammunition from manual antitank grenades but also the artillery cumulative projectiles. Interception of objects, threatening the tank, is implementing  at the distance in 50 meters. Wherein the time of reaction is only 0,3 seconds.
