MODERNIZATION OF T-55 TANK UP TO T-55-64 TANK

Manufacturer: STATE ENTERPRISE “KHARKIV ARMORED PLANT”

The T-64 chassis – together with T-55 Tank turret in the modernized tank construction (T-55, T-62 Tank) – makes it cheaper by 25%, compared to the costs of recycling of modernized tank’s hull to the level of 5TDF engine. The mobility specifications are enhanced by 40%, as well as the armor protection enhanced by 3 times. This allows reaching the lightening of construction weight by 4 tones that is a basis for the further improvement of weaponry and armor protection specifications.
