The ammunition includes four types of missiles: armor-piercing, piercing, cumulative and high-explosive detonation from a remote system, allowing ammunition to explode at a desired point of the trajectory.

It can also fire using Reflex and Cobra anti-tank guided missiles. The elevation of the tank allows it to hit hovering helicopters.

The T-90’s Shtora electro-optical active protection system shields the vehicle from anti-tank guided missiles.
