About the T-72:

Developed in 1971, the T-72 “Ural” was designed in the tradition of inexpensive and effective Russian tanks. Beginning with the T-34 medium tank of World War II, Soviet tank designers set out to compete with Western military hardware. The T-72 maintained close performance to Western main battle tanks while keeping the cost low. It came armed with a 125 mm smoothbore tank gun and an optical coincidence rangefinder. Later improvements came with laser rangefinder systems. The T-72 “Ural” had an automatic loading system, eliminating the need for a dedicated crewmember.

One of the key features of the T-72 is the attached 125 mm 2A46 series main gun, which is significantly larger than the standard 105 mm gun found in western MBTs. The main gun is complemented by a “Siren” two-plane electrohydraulic stabilizer, which allows automatic stabilization with speeds from .05-6 degrees per second.
