    Is the T-72 a good tank?

    The Russian T-72 tank is very fast-moving, lightweight, and has incredible firepower. It also costs half a million dollars to produce.

    The T-72 is emblematic of the Soviet Union’s politics, marred in petty infighting and egregious corruption. It fits into the Russian military’s doctrine of throwing tons of armored vehicles at the enemy.

    The T-72 is based on the T-62 design, which evolved over time since World War Ii. It was the first tank to be capable of firing the armor-piercing thin stabilized discarding Sabot round.

    The T-62 had some problems, so they upgraded to the T-64, but it had a bunch of mechanical problems, so they began working on the T-72. Two rival tank teams would end up competing against one another to create the T-72.

    The T-72 had a new larger 125 millimeter main gun, used the same base armor composite instead of the older homogenous castile, required a smaller three-man crew, and could reach a top speed of 47 miles per hour.
