The T-72B main battle tank is a vehicle created in the mid-1980s, at the height of the war in Afghanistan and the Cold War of the USSR against the United States and the so-called collective West. Some experts are confident that this is one of the best combat vehicles of its time, capable of effectively resisting NATO tanks... Others believe that the T-72B had shortcomings that would not allow it to fight “on equal terms” with the American Abrams and German Leopards, if such a struggle really manifested itself not in the reflections of analysts, but on the battlefield.
The T-72B crew consists of three people: a driver, gunner and tank commander. The tank is equipped with a circular automatic loader with 22 rounds loading. The same number of shots are kept separately.
The T-72B tank is also capable of moving under water. It was designed for overcoming water obstacles up to 5 meters deep - with movement along the bottom of the reservoir.
This tank is capable of hitting targets with various types of ammunition, including guided missiles.
