Russia’s Airborne Force to start setting up tank companies 12 May, 2016

Russian Airborne Force will start setting up tank companies armed with T-72B3 tanks in the second half of the year according to Russian state owned TASS Agency. They will be expanded into tank battalions within the next two years. The T-72B3 is the most modern T-72 in Russian Army service as of 2013. Designed during the height of the Cold War, the T-72 is a Russian Main Battle Tank intended to be deployed amongst certain elements of the Russian Army as a cheaper alternative to the T-64 and later the T-80 Main Battle Tanks.
