Russia will demonstrate the latest version of its T-72 main battle tank during the Victory Day Parade, according to the commander in chief of the Russian Ground Forces. Powered with a 1130 horsepower diesel engine, the T-72B3M's engine-transmission compartment and rear part of the tower are covered with anti-cumulative screen grids and additional blocks of dynamic protection as well as having strengthened mine protection technology. 

In March 2016, it was announced that Russia was planning to modernize its 150 T-72 main battle tanks to the T-72B3M version. Russia was to spend $37 million to upgrade 150 T-72Bs to the advanced B3M standard.
