History[ | ]

Class: Main Battle Tank

Vehicles Built: cca 5000
Operators: Czechoslovakia, Poland, East Germany, Romania, India, Iraq, Syria, Angola, Finland and several others

The T-72M1 is a late export variant of the T-72A Soviet MBT from the 1980s. Unlike the more common T-72M, it features the same composite turret armor as the T-72A, giving it its distinctive look. Contrary to popular belief, the T-72M1 does not feature any significant downgrades compared to the T-72A, despite being disparagingly called a "monkey model" by western military enthusiasts.

In essence, it is an upgraded earlier T-72M. The T-72M featured the early steel-only turret from the T-72 Ural and the addition of frontal composite armor was the main improvement. Thousands of these tanks were built in the 1980s and the early 1990s in the Soviet Union, Poland and former Czechoslovakia with most of them being exported all around the globe.

Each country also introduced small modifications based on their needs, which means that every service model is more or less different. The Armored Warfare version is based on a vehicle built in Czechoslovakia. Nowadays, several thousand tanks of this type are still in service, most notably in India.

This MBT's front is protected by composite armor. Composite armor consists of combined layers of steel and other material and offers excellent protection against HEAT shells and ATGMs. Its steel sides and rear are considerably more vulnerable.
