  1. Hi, the T-72A are just T-72 tanks and the T-55A tanks are just T-55 tanks (Czechoslovakian production). Als note that on the first photo the T-55 has the North Korean LRF. Can you also contact me via Email? Thanks

    • What is your definition of “just a T-72”? Do you mean that T-72A is just a T-72 Ural? Because it’s not. T-72A has laser range finder, as well as more advanced fire control system, and composite armour in the turret. However, most of Syria’s T-72’s are “M” variants. If not all of them. Also, T-55A is upgraded with anti-radiation lining, and NBC system. The hull was also lengthened and room was made for more standard ammunition for the main gun. And production of T-55A was done mostly at UVZ in Russia during the 60’s. So I’m not sure where you get your information from, but you may want to check over it.
