GarageImage T-80B.jpg

The T-80B is a Rank VI Soviet medium tank with a battle rating of 10.0 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced in Update 1.81 "The Valkyries".

The T-80B is visually similar to the T-64B, it retains the same rounded turret, sloped frontal armour and skirted sides, as well as the same jacketed 125 mm smoothbore gun. The turret bears different kit, however, such as the use of rounded storage bins and a snorkel tube. The same NSVT 12 mm machine gun is fitted, but this time it is used with 150-round boxes instead of the 100-round boxes found on the T-64B. The T-80B retains the same rubber-mesh screens covering the upper portion of the tracks. The frontal glacis has an additional 30 mm plate of HHRA welded onto it. This replaces the regular V-shaped “splash plate” found on the T-64B. The primary difference between the T-80B and its predecessor is the significantly improved engine which offers increased mobility.

General info

Survivability and armour

The T-80B encounters the same weaknesses and strengths as the T-64 line does - extremely strong turret cheeks, an average upper front glacis with a large weak spot around the driver's port, and a lack of composite on the lower front plate. It's also vulnerable to the same incoming fire as the T-64B - turret shots will often disable the gun breech; penetrating shots on the hull will often detonate the ammunition in the carousel.

As with the T-64B, the T-80B is best used in hull-down positions where only the turret is exposed - and unlike the T-64B, it has an acceptable reverse speed for utilising cover.


The T-80B has a turbine engine which produces significantly more power than the T-64B's diesel - top speed and manoeuvrability are both improved thanks to this but the most significant change is the acceleration - the T-80B is able to achieve reasonable speeds both off- and on-road and maintain them much better than the T-64B. More importantly, the reverse speed is nearly doubled from the measly 4km/h on the T-64B to 7km/h - still not ideal but a big improvement.

Thanks to the improvements, the T-80B is a much better match for the Abrams/Challenger/Leopard series - it's still not the fastest but it's a much closer race.


Main armament

Give the reader information about the characteristics of the main gun. Assess its effectiveness in a battle based on the reloading speed, ballistics and the power of shells. Do not forget about the flexibility of the fire, that is how quickly the cannon can be aimed at the target, open fire on it and aim at another enemy. Add a link to the main article on the gun: {{main|Name of the weapon}}. Describe in general terms the ammunition available for the main gun. Give advice on how to use them and how to fill the ammunition storage.

Additional armament

Some tanks are armed with several guns in one or more turrets. Evaluate the additional weaponry and give advice on its use. Describe the ammunition available for additional weaponry. Give advice on how to use them and how to fill the ammunition storage. If there is no additional weaponry remove this subsection.

Machine guns

Offensive and anti-aircraft machine guns not only allow you to fight some aircraft but also are effective against lightly armoured vehicles. Evaluate machine guns and give recommendations on its use.

Usage in battles

The T-80B should be played like a T-64B, using your powerful gun and decent armour to pick off enemies in the distance. When needed, the T-80B can perform flanking runs with its decent speed. However, the T-80B should not be played like an M1 Abrams, as the tank will explode when anything penetrates your armour.

When playing in large maps such as "Kursk" and "Maginot Line" use the mobility of the T-80B to get into a hull-down position and make use of the T-80B's armament as well as its phenomenal turret armour to pick-off faraway enemy tanks. When playing in small maps such as "Normandy" and "Poland", use the mobility of the T-80B to flank enemy tanks as you would with the "M1 Abrams" or similar western MBT.

Some threats to be worried about:

  • Type 90 can penetrate any part of your tank and any plausible range. So don't get hit by it. The same goes for AMX-40
  • An ATGM will result in an ammunition detonation or crew kill. It is extremely important to get the Kontact-1 ERA modification as soon as possible because those ERA blocks will save you from helicopters. If you do not have the ERA modification, pay attention to the skies, try to maintain some sort of cover, as you will usually have 1-3 seconds of reaction time from detecting an ATGM and getting hit by one.

Pros and cons


  • Very good composite armour
  • Powerful main gun with great stabilizers and accuracy
  • Very good mobility
  • Small vehicle
  • Decent reverse speed of 12 kph
  • Autoloader like the T-64
  • Good chemical munitions protection with the ERA upgrade


  • Same autoloader as the T-64, same rate of fire and weak spot
  • 3 crew member makes it hard to survive on the battlefield
  • Bad gun depression, the generic trouble of Soviet tanks
  • Not a very fast turning turret
  • Lower frontal hull armour devoid of composite armour
  • Breech is easily damaged


T-80B main battle tank is a further development of the original T-80 (Ob'yekt 219) in 1978, with some improvement such as the installation of the 1A33 fire control system, laser rangefinder, and new autoloader that allowing to fire 9M112-1 Kobra antitank guided missile, however in 1980s the T-80B received more upgrades like the new improved 1,100-hp engine (1980), newer 2A46-2 125mm gun (1982) and Kontakt-1 ERA blocks (1985) on T-80B model 1985 turret and front hull (or upper glacis plate to be precise) that can hold up to 400mm penetration againts HEAT round.

First combat history of the T-80s was in first Chechen War, their debuts was not very successful, as the tanks were rushed cities in urban warfare, from 84 T-80s Russia lost 18 of it because of the poor tactics of the Russian Army at that time. The T-80B tanks used in Chechen War either did not have Kontakt-1 reactive armors because of Russia bad economy at that time, probably the guy who was taking care of it decided to sold the valuable explosive reactive armors. This lead to the Bad Name of the T-80 which everyone knows T-80 as the Worst Tank.
