Russia’s Eastern Military District to get advanced battle tanks


More than 70 sophisticated T-72B3 tanks will be supplied to the Russian Eastern Military District by the year-end, sources said.

The new tanks are due to replace the T-72B1 tanks that are still in service in a number of military units at the Russian Eastern Military District.

“More than 70 modernized T-72B3 tanks will be put into service by the Eastern Military District’s motor-rifle units by the end of 2015. The delivery comes within the framework of the 2015 state defense order,” the Russian Eastern Military District’s press service said.
