"We are supporting (Kazakh T-72 tanks). We are planning to train Kazakh tanker, as the nation intends to upgrade its T-72 MBTs to T-72B3 level," Sienko said.

He added that UVZ does not supply newly produced T-72 tanks, upgrading the previously delivered ones. According to him, the modernization of T-72 in Kazakhstan is being done by indigenous Kazakhstan Engineering company.

Sienko added that Kazakhstan`s tank specialists will be trained in Russia.

T-72B3 MBT is armed with 125mm 2A46M-5 gun as the main weapon. 2A46M-5 can fire both rounds and anti-tank guided missiles (ATGM), being able to eliminate hostile MBTs at 5,000 m distance. The vehicle is equipped with applique explosive reactive armour (ERA). The tank has received dual-axis gun stabilizer and target tracking device. T-72B3 has a combat weight of 46 t.

The T-72 fitted with urban warfare kit is fitted with additional modular explosive reactive armour on each side of the hull and also at the front of the turret to increase protection against portable anti-tank rockets, the rear side is fitted with armour cage or slat armour especially designed to protect the tank against anti-tank rocket-propelled grenade (RPG) attacks.
