T-72MP Upgraded Main Battle Tank

T-72 Tank Upgrade

Modernisation of T-72 main battle tanks is carried out in three key areas:
  • improvement of mobility by installing a 1000 hp engine or 1200hp engine;
  • increase of protection by installing additional add-on armour plates on the hull glacis plate and on the turret front as well as by installing explosive reactive armour;
  • enhancement of firepower by installing up-to-date sighting systems, armament control drives, ballistic computer etc.
