Class: Main Battle Tank (Prototype)

Service: N/A

The T-72M2 Wilk ("Wolf" in Polish) was an upgraded variant of the T-72M1 MBT, which in turn was an export version of the Russian T-72A. Up until the early 1980s, the Polish People’s Armed forces, much like their fellow non-Soviet Warsaw Pact allies such as the East Germany and Czechoslovakia, were restricted to the T-55A tank as their primary MBT in armored units. It was not until that point that the Soviet Union saw fit to grant the use of newer designs to their allies.

Poland launched domestic production of the T-72M variant in 1981. This variant would best be described as a middle ground between the original T-72 Ural and the T-72A and was developed by the Soviet Union for export. A few years later, in 1986, the production of this tank was replaced by a much-improved T-72M1 that for all intents and purposes was almost a complete copy of the original T-72A. Both variants were manufactured by Bumar-Łabędy Mechanical Works plant in Gliwice. However, even as the production began, the T-72M1 was no longer considered by Polish general staff as a sufficient vehicle for the modern battlefield, especially considering the introduction of the next generation MBTs by the western powers. Emboldened by the successes of the indigenous T-55 upgrade program, Poland began to explore various options regarding how to upgrade the T-72M1 on its own.

Three MBT prototypes were built between 1987 and 1990 as a part of the WILK program, featuring the Polish DRAWA FCS, Polish ERAWA-1 ERA kit (also domestically developed), SSC OBRA-1 laser warning system, 850hp S-12U diesel engine (developed from the Russian V-46-6 diesel) and new smoke grenade launchers. In July 1991, following successful trials, it was nevertheless decided to conclude the WILK project and launch another one, eventually resulting in the creation of the PT-91 Twardy Main Battle Tank.
