The T-90M is equipped with a highly-automated Kalina fire control system, as well as a remotely controlled anti-aircraft machine gun with a 12.7-mm Kord MT machine gun. To protect against enemy fire, the tank features anti-cumulative trellised screens and a Relict dynamic defence system.
The modernized tank can fire a 9M119M missile with the tandem cumulative warhead Invar and Invar-M and strike modern and prospective enemy tanks at a distance of up to 5 kilometers. As additional protection, the tank has anti-cumulative screen grids, a set of dynamic and active protection. Crew comfort has been improved with air conditioning.
