The T-55AGM tank is a version of modernisation of T-54, T-55, T-59 and T-62 tanks.

In order to enhance all its main combat, technical and operational characteristics, it is fitted with the following:

  • Power pack with 5TDFM engine
  • Improved running gear
  • Automated movement control system with a steering handlebar control
  • Additional passive protection, built-in explosive reactive armour, optronic countermeasures system, and new fire suppression system
  • Up-to-date fire control system with over-ride facilities at the commander's station
  • Automatic loader
  • Anti-aircraft machine gun that can be aimed and fired from within the turret under complete armour protection
  • New gun (its calibre can be 125 mm or 120 mm according to Customer's request).

Changes in technical characteristics of the t-55 tank as a result of modernisation
