On December 16, Lviv Armor Plant handed over Т-64 tanks to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Combat vehicles were upgraded. The head of the technological department of the enterprise Nazar Vovchko told about the update of tanks:
“In these Т-64 completely updated sights complexes. They now do not have an unmasking “infrared headlight,” which no one has ever used, because it shone as a spotlight, and its use meant the death of both the crew and the vehicle”, said Vovchko.
Newer sights allow you to see the enemy much further, both during the day and at night. Without interfering with snow or rain. Additional dynamic protection units were put in place of the infrared headlight, which made it possible to improve the survivability.
