History[]

Class: Main Battle Tank (Prototype)
Developed: 1986-1993
Service: N/A
Vehicles Built: 6
Operators: N/A

The Object 187 was a Soviet era program, developed to improve upon the excellent but ageing T-72B Main Battle Tank. This project was competing against another one called Object 188. Both designs were actually based on the T-72, but Object 187 was the deeper modernization of the two. Unlike its sibling, Object 187 was actually the result of a company initiative rather than a specific ministry request. This was not very common in the late Soviet era as funding was generally quite tight, but Uralvagonzavod – being the producer of the T-72 – could afford things other plants or design bureaus could not. The design team was led by V.I.Potkin (he'd become famous for the T-90 "Vladimir" that was named after him).

Six prototypes were built, featuring a number of advanced elements compared to the older Soviet tanks, such as a new long 125mm smoothbore gun with a distinctive muzzle brake. The result was an excellent MBT that was, however, never mass-produced due to the 1990s Russian military budget cuts – the Russian army chose a less advanced but cheaper T-90 instead.
