T-80 is produced at the Kirov Plant, Leningrad. First entered operational service in 1976. T-80 is designed to replace T-64. T-80 was the first Russian tanks that use gasturbine machine, this machine is capable of making the T-80 reached speeds 70km/jam with a maximum distance of 335km. As the characteristics of gas turbine engines generally, GTD-1000 engine is consuming a lot of fuel, so that the hull tanks made design changes to accommodate more fuel. In the next variant of the T-80U, gasturbine engine replaced with a GTD-1250.
T-80 uses caliber 125mm cannon. This cannon can fire a bullet other than a tank can be used also to launch ATGW. In addition, T-80 using the Autoloader, thereby reducing the number of crew members to 3. As with previous variants, this tank has been equipped by the dozer at the bottom of the hull.
Currently carrying T-80 4500 are still operating in Russia.
