The T-55 for tanks is the same as AK-47 for rifles, and MiG-21 for airplanes- all of them are Soviet legends. Anyway, Soviets really knew how to make stuff- all we use is actually upgraded/modernized Soviet technology (for countries who used or still use Soviet tech).

@deniable_pain
USA won most of the wars because of the heavy Air support (WW2, all Middle Eastern wars...). For example, during Korea war, US tank crew were talking how they were easily destroyed T-34/85 with their "Pershings", but they never mention how they were terrified when the first T-55s appeared in front of them. (Nearly)Same applies to Vietnamese war. During Persian Gulf Wars, most of the
T-72/T-62/T-55 were destroyed by the US Air Force. And, there was an advantage over Iraqi T-s - and that's the electronics in Abrams's.

Don't forget that Iraqui T-72 were monkey models Assad-Babyl of a further downgrade export T-72 model !!! And their APFSDS (in the T-72 Assad-Babyl) were made of hardened tool steel, instead of DU-238 or Tungsten alloy. Their armor were made of construction steel grade, no composite involve there ! And it didn't had ERA !!! What a pity !!! No infrared-night vision, but stupid lamps to see in the dark. You got easily spotted !
