There are many well-known tanks across the world, but few can match the legendary T-72. Produced in several countries in large numbers, this ubiquitous workhorse of the former Warsaw Pact saw service in countless conflicts and proved itself to be one of the most popular military export vehicles of the Cold War era. In this article, we will be focusing on the T-72B model.
Development of the T-72B was based on a Soviet government decision from July 5 1981. The development process itself took place in Uralvagonzavod and was part of a broader T-72A Improvement program, which included a large number of different prototype upgrades to the T-72A Main Battle Tank.
The frontal turret armor was also improved with the turret shape changed somewhat. The noticeable frontal turret armor extensions (cheeks) were made, due to the different composite armor layout, even more prominent. The Americans nicknamed this turret variant Super Dolly Parton.
