The T-80 is a third-generation main battle tank (MBT) designed and manufactured in the Soviet Union. A development of the T-64, it entered service in 1976 and was the first production tank to be equipped with a gas turbine engine for main propulsion. It has a better power to weight ratio than most Western MBT's and has very good mobility especially compared to other Soviet tanks. It has several advancements over the T-72 though has a much higher cost so it wasn't nearly as heavily produced. It mounts the same 125 mm gun that can fire both conventional rounds and missiles.

In Game Edit

This is the Tier V Russian Modern Era tank, its pretty much an improvement over the T-72 so if your familiar with the Russian Modern Era family you all ready know how to play this tank. Faces tier V to VIII tanks so this will always be lowest tier. Compared to the LeClerc this does more damage but fires slower. It has less health but greater manuverability. Like all Russian MBT's it has a low profile with a bouncy hull so playing peekaboo works pretty well. Thanks to that low profile it has really poor gun depression and elevation so you need to be very cautious not to expose yourself when you can't shoot back. It is more stable on the move so use your mobility as your greatest asset.
