The T-64A Mod.1976 is a Tier 5 progression Main Battle Tank under Marat Shishkin's dealership.

History[ | ]

Class: Medium Tank
Developed: 1969-1976
Service: 1976+
Vehicles Built: cca 1500-2000
Operators: Soviet Union, Ukraine, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan

The T-64A Model 1976 variant was the final T-64A production variant. By 1974, the T-64A was deep in production already while being upgraded practically every year with new features, its teething problems resolved one by one – between 1969 and 1973, no fewer than 242 modifications were made on the vehicle, most of them to the engine and the suspension.

From 1974 to 1975, the first major armor upgrade took place when the frontal part of the turret aluminum inlay was replaced by another one, this time made of corundum balls. The automatic loader was upgraded as well and, finally, the tank received a new gun model – the 2A46 gun, an upgraded version of the original 125mm 2A26 smoothbore.

The gun was of the same caliber and barrel length but without the problems that plagued the older model. Specifically, the 2A26 gun barrel was too thin and twisted when exposed to elements, causing the gun lose accuracy. Plus, the recoil mechanism wasn’t well-designed either, its hydraulic fluid mixed with air, causing the gun to recoil incorrectly, further reducing its accuracy. These issues were solved on the 2A46 gun that officially entered service in 1970. The gun was stabilized by a new stabilizer model called 2E28M2 and received a new thermal shroud.

The engine also received some upgrades and became actually capable of running on multiple fuel types. The 1974-1975 upgrades integrated into the 1976 model became the biggest and the only major upgrade to the T-64A while keeping the T-64A designation. The production of the T-64A ran from 1968 to 1980-1981 with the last four years being in parallel with the T-64B model. The T-64A remained in Soviet service until the dissolution of the Soviet Union when the remaining tanks mostly seemed to have ended up in Ukraine. Like the other T-64A models, this tank was never exported and was only passed to the successor countries after the dissolution of the Soviet Union.
