the BMPT-72 has an improved fire control system and better turret weapon station protection.“The key advantage that the BMPT-72 gives to all the counties that operate T-72 tanks is that they can promptly and at minimal cost upgrade their armies to an ultra-modern level, and enhance capacity, mobility, protection and armament without purchasing new high-cost machines. The BMPT-72 is armed with two 30-mm cannons, two 30-mm grenade launchers, four launchers for 130-mm Ataka-T anti-tank guided missiles, a 7.62-mm machine gun, and two 81-mm smoke grenade launchers. Built by Uralvagonzavod, the BMPT-72 packs every bleeding edge technology in the Russian armory into a T-72 main battle tank chassis, one of the most successful and widely-adopted armored platforms in the world.Compared to the previous BMPT iteration, which entered service in 2005, the Terminator 2 features a host of design and technology improvements. The internal cabin is roomier, the turret now sports a lower profile and better small arms protection for its exposed missiles, and the both the fire control and navigation systems have been upgraded as well. The Terminator 2 sports an 850 hp B84MC engine or an optional 1000 hp B92C2. Both are V12 liquid-cooled, turbocharged diesels.
The new BMPT-72 is an extensive modernization of the world-famous T-72 main battle tank
