The T-72 Ural is a tier 4 Main Battle Tank originating from the Soviet Union, and is sold by Marat Shishkin. It can be unlocked from the T-62, and leads to the T-72A.

Features[edit | edit source]

  • Heavy armor: this vehicle's armor bounces more shots and takes more hits
  • High caliber: the high caliber weaponry deals an increased damage
  • Powerful HE Ammo : causes more damage than regular HE
  • Smoke Generators : generated a smoke screen around the vehicle

Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

A heavy hitting powerhouse, the T-72 Ural is one of the first tanks to establish the heavy hitting reputation the T series is known for all the way up to tier 10. With a high DPM and good mobility, the T-72 is a strong brawler and hull down warrior when it can fight on open ground. But with a mediocre stock top speed and acceleration and poor gun depression, this vehicle is harder to play, compared to the T-64 mod. 1969.

Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • High alpha
  • Excellent turret armor

Cons[edit | edit source]

  • Poor hull armor
  • Poor turret traverse
  • Poor gun depression
  • Mediocre top speed and acceleration

Upgrade Suggestions[edit | edit source]

Upgrading to the V-46-6 Diesel Engine will greatly improve the otherwise poor mobility of the T-72, so this should be researched as early as possible. Upgrading to the Rubber Side Skirts, while giving minimal protection against AP, offers significant protection versus HEAT rounds, so this should be researched fairly quickly. Armament upgrades, while useful, take a relatively long time to research, so these should be researched later after the less expensive upgrades have been attached.

Retrofit Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Advanced Muzzle Reference System
  • Augmented Optics
  • Improved Gun Breech
  • Improved Pioneer Tool Kit
  • Improved Spall Liner

Commander and Crew Skill Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Commander: Juan Carlos, to improve the aim speed and crew stats.
  • Driver: Spin to Win, Off-Road Driving
  • Gunner: Sharpshooter, Do the Twist

One of the best known and most successful export tanks ever made, the T-72 has a laminated steel upper glacis and turret whose frontal area is filled with 'Kvartz', a sand-like mixture that helps to defend against HEAT shells at less cost than the T-64.

Although minimalist in appearance and kinetic protection, this added skirt causes HEAT and HE shells to detonate further away from the vehicle, creating a measurable increase in survivability.

History[edit | edit source]

The most infamous late Cold War Soviet design, the T-72 is the poster child of eastern European firepower, and one of the most well-known and widely used tanks in the world today. Designed as a more cost-effective variant of the T-64, the T-72 begun production in 1973, and upgraded variants are still under production to this day. The T-72 Ural was the first production run of the T-72, which continued until the T-72A in 1979. Serving in conflicts across the globe under the banner of over forty nations with over twenty-five thousand made, it is the tank which defined the Soviet army for almost half a century.
