Seems obvious it’s not destroyed but something did catch fire.
It’s not a cookoff.

Theorically, a T-90 can cope with TOW missiles : ERA explosive reactive armoured plates are designed especially to get such hits… These are old 70’s missiles, although last (upgraded) batch only dates from 2012. T-90 Shura jammer seems to have failed again…

Shtora is disabled if the hatches are opened. That was the case with the T-90 hit in Febbruary.

The smoke from hatch was an anti fire system… And you can see the crew near the tank also=)
