T-90A “Vladimir” main battle tanks to be modernized to T-90M standard...

All of Russia’s T-90A “Vladimir” main battle tanks are to be modernized to T-90M standard. A contract was signed between the Russian Ministry of Defense and the Uralvagonzavod Corporation at the annual “ArmyExpo-2019”.
Announced by the information service of the Rostec State Corporation, a contract was signed, which is one of the largest in the five-year history of holding this event. The contract was signed by Andrei Vernigor on behalf of the Russian Ministry of Defense, and by Deputy Director General Vyacheslav Halitov on behalf of the Uralvagonzavod Corporation. According to Mr. Halitov, this agreement will enable long-term contracts for the employees of Uralvagonzavod, as well as help further increase in the production and technological potential of the corporation.

During R&D efforts to modernize the basic T-90A to T-90M standard, engineers of the Uralvagonzavod Corporation focused on the combat experience gained in Syria, as well as on the general experience of the use of various Soviet/Russian armored combat tactics in many conflicts around the world.
This is interesting.

The Russians are incorporating lessons learned from the fighting in Syria with a great sense of urgency.

From aircraft to armored vehicles, we're seeing wholesale improvements  based on their experiences there.

Of personal interest but yet to be seen is the role that armor played in that conflict. 

Syria is the most chaotic battlefield in recent history.

How armor was used warrants further study.
