BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:00 P.M.) – Iraq was one of the latest countries to receive the Russian-manufactured T-90 tanks, making them the second country in the region to put them to use.
In a new video released by the Iraqi military, several T-90 tanks can be seen in use by their forces – please see below:

Previously, the Iraqi military relied on the US-manufactured Abrams tanks, which were used throughout their four year long battle against the Islamic State (ISIS).
However, with a large arsenal of T-90 tanks, the Iraqi military may bolster some of the strongest armored divisions in the region.
