The Ukrainian Armed Forces have supposedly deployed its recently gotten T-72M1R main battle tanks with Kontakt-1 explosive reactive armor to the front line, in Ukraine's eastern Donetsk region.

Ex-Polish T-72M1R tanks have actually been photographed driving through Bakhmut in the Donetsk region.

According to Defence24, the T-72M1R is among the newest updated variations of Soviet-era T-72 tanks. The upgrade included installing the KLW-1 Asteria thermal imaging system, along with a passive observation suite for the leader, and the gunner. The MBTs received by the Polish Armed Forces likewise included a digital intercom/external communications suite by WB Group, a new navigation system, and other, minor upgrades.

Ukrainian engineers also equipped ex-Polish T-72 with Kontakt-1 explosive reactive armor created to utilize C4 dynamites sandwiched in between two plates to respond to the effect of an anti-tank weapon and decrease the damage sustained.

New explosive reactive armor bundles have been fitted at the front and the sides of the hull and at the front of the turret of the T-72M1R.

In mid-April, Poland's prime minister verified the country provided its Soviet-designed T-72 tanks to Ukraine to support the fight against Russia, which attacked Ukraine on Feb. 24.
