Retains low silhouette of the T55/62. Has greater mobility than the T-62. Main gun is stabilized in 2 planes but does not have "on the move" firing capability of the Western MBTs. Gun can fire fin stabilized APFSDS, HE and HEAT ammunition as well as the Songster AT-8 missile and is equipped with an auto-loader. Hull is covered with steel/ceramic inserts called Combination K. Sides of hull are covered with gill type armor panels which spring outwards to reduce effectiveness of HEAT projectiles. A toothed shovel/dozer blade is attached to the front of the hull, and there are attachment points for a mine clearing plow. Snorkel, night vision, fire detection and suppression, and an NBC system are standard equipment.
This tank was not exported but was produced solely for the USSR. More than 8000 were produced. Improvements led to the T-80 model tank.
