Default t-72 good or bad tank

so what do you think do you think the t-72 is a good tank or a bad one. it can be a lethal machine outfited with upgrades and a good crew. but its armor is easyly penetrated. so what do think is it a good tank or a falure.

Well, it got a big gun, is cheap and fairy small. As long as it hits its targets and doesnt use steel rod penetrators, i dont see whats so bad about it.

i think i read something about iraques using steel rod penetrators agains the abrams.....bad idia


i think its a good tank i dont think it would win a fight head on againts an abrams 1 on 1 but you can compare the t-72 with the sherman in wwII against the king tiger.

Sure it could. As long as it fired first, and hit first. Btw, Saddams T72s were also monkey models:

Why were steel rod penetrators a bad idea? And what would have been better.

If you can read this the bitch fell off.

dont forget that several t72s were able to hit and penetrate side and back armor of m1a2 and fairly decent distance

Penetrators work by putting a hell a lot of kinetic energy into the enemy tank, through a tiny localised area - giving a tremendous force.

The harder and denser the metal rod used is, the greater the chance it has of smashing through the enemy tank's armour, of not being deflected by ERA and scoring a fatal or diabling attack on the target.

Steel is basically a pretty weak and soft metal, that's why we add all kinds of things to it to strengethen it. Depleted Uranium and Tungsten are much harder and denser.
