Combat vehicles received a powerful engine, a modern fire control system and a mechanical drive display complex. The work is carried out within the framework of the State Defense Order, in accordance with the conditions of which the T-72B tanks received from the repair fund undergo major overhauls and deep modernization to the level of T-72B3. During the development of the T-72 tank, the designers laid a significant modernization potential, which is currently being actively used.

The modernization affected almost all systems, as a result of which the maneuverability of the machines improved, their firepower and the level of protection increased.

The T-72B3 also has a new power plant of increased power, a modern digital communication system, and a display complex for the driver. The combat vehicle is equipped with a new fire control system with an automatic target tracking, which can significantly reduce the time for training gunner-operators, without reducing the effectiveness of firing. Thermal imaging channels of Russian production are not inferior in their characteristics to previously installed foreign ones.

Each tank passed acceptance tests, during which the officers of the military mission personally checked all the systems from the workplaces of the driver, gunner, operator and commander.
