This upgrade incorporates most of the improvements carried out in the 80s to some T-55 MBTs operated by the former Warsaw Pact (see T-54/T-55 entry) with the exception of the ability to fire the Russian-designed and built 100 mm laser-guided projectile. This upgrade retains the 100 mm rifled tank gun but has been improved in the key areas of armour, mobility and firepower. Additional armour has been fitted to the hull and turret to provide for increased protection against mines and anti-tank guided missiles. Other modifications include improvements allowing for more accurate firing, in the dynamic and driving qualities of the vehicle, the engine cooling and an increase in protection of the crew from the effects of mines, anti-tank guided missiles and missiles launched from low-flying aircraft and helicopters.
