The T-80U main battle tank is a later modified version of the T-80, which entered service with the Soviet Army in 1985.

The T-80U has a cast turret with a welded body and a low projection area. Compared to the early T-80B series, the armor protection capability has been greatly improved. The main armor is a composite armor of various materials, plus "contact" type-5 reaction armor. The car is also equipped with an automatic fire suppression device and a nuclear biochemical protection system.

The main weapon of the T-80U is a two-way stable 125mm smoothbore with an automatic loader. It is equipped with shelling armor-piercing projectiles, armor-piercing projectiles and high-explosive grenade. It can also fire a 9 M119M anti-tank missile (known as the AT-11 "sniper" in the West). The missile has a maximum range of 5 kilometers and can also attack low-altitude helicopters. The auxiliary weapon is a 7.62 mm coaxial machine gun and a 12.7 mm high-altitude machine gun at the top of the turret.

The original production plan for the T-80U main battle tank was to install the GTD-1000 TF gas turbine with a power of 1,100 hp. Since the early 1990s, the GTD-1250 gas turbine has been replaced with a power of 1250 horsepower.
