About the T-80BVM “Bunny” - Captured Russian MBT
Eight days into the Russian invasion of Ukraine, a rifleman commandeered this specialized Russian T-80 tank. This version has been fitted with mine rakes and a modernized autoloader, increasing the rate of fire and variety of munitions available from its upgraded 125mm main gun. The tank also features a unique mascot, a stuffed bunny, which lends the tank its name. The T-80 was built only two years ago and was found abandoned in a field near the commander’s hometown of Kharkiv. Under the direction of its new owner, the now Ukrainian T-80 got right to work, reportedly destroying over two dozen Russian military vehicles, including several tanks.
First showcased in 2017, the T-80BVM is Russia’s first tank to be fitted with explosive reactive armor. This armor protects against tandem warheads and reduces penetration of armor piercing sabot rounds. The tank’s main armament is a 125mm smoothbore gun, but it is also armed with 9M119M Refleks anti-tank guided missiles. The secondary armament features a coaxial 7.62mm machine gun and roof-mounted 12.7mm machine gun. Similar to the U.S. Abrams, the T-80BVM utilizes a turbine engine, making it able to reach speeds of 80 km/h while on a road.
