The Russian Army's 2nd Combined Arms motorised rifle brigade in Orenburg will receive 30 modernised T-72B3 tanks in the first half of 2019, according to the Russian Ministry of Defence.

The upgraded tanks are equipped with new generation radio stations, gunners' multi-channel stabilised sights with a thermal imaging channel, and new high-power ammunition.

The tank's new fire control system enables troops to conduct accurate firing in any weather conditions day and night. Digital ballistic computers decrease fire calculation time.
