BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 P.M.) – The Serbian Army received its first T-72B1MS “White Eagle” tanks. The combat vehicles were transferred on board the Il-76 aircraft to Batajnica airport.
According to the Sputnik Agency in Serbia, it has been delivered by two aircraft with 30 pieces and they will be transported within the framework of a military-technical agreement reached between Presidents Vladimir Putin and Alexander Vucic.
The T-72B1MS White Eagle is currently one of the top export options of the large T-72 series. Its main armament is a 125 mm smoothbore gun with an automatic loading system.
The artillery is capable of firing armor-piercing rounds, high-explosive cumulative rockets, and anti-tank missiles guided by a laser beam with a range of more than 5000 meters.
Such munitions can destroy ground targets, low-flying objects, and low-speed objects, such as helicopter gunships.
The tank contains a modern advanced digital fire control system with a multi-channel target identification system and a 12.7 mm variant machine gun that is remotely controlled.
Satellite navigation has been introduced for guidance on the ground.
