The western military division of the Russian Ministry of Defense will receive T-72B3 upgraded tanks under re-armament program, Russian MoD announced last week.

The T-72B3 is part of the development of the standard Russian-made T-72B series currently in service in the Russian army. The T-72B3 has improved combat characteristics with more fire power, protection, mobility and command controllability.

The main armament of the T-72B3 is a 125mm 2A46M-5 smoothbore gun fitted with a light-alloy thermal sleeve and a bore evacuator. Due to new hard-core projectile, modern ballistic computer, modernized stabilizer and auto target tracker the fire accuracy when moveless and moving has significantly increased.

Also unlike the predecessors T-72B3 has the latest fire control system. Digital ballistic computer allows reducing time for calculations and increasing efficiency. Imaging infrared channel of the primary sight provides reliable operation of guidance equipment day and night in any weather conditions.
