The T-72B3 is an enhanced Russian version of the Soviet second-generation T-72B tank and a cheaper alternative to the earlier T-72B2 "Rogatka" tank. Compared to the earlier vehicles of the series, the T-72B3 features a more powerful engine, an advanced fire control system and Kontakt-5 explosive reactive armour. 

The T-72B3 entered service with the Russian Army in 2013. By 2016 at least 600 earlier models were modified to the new version. In 2014 T-72B3 tanks were used in combat during the armed conflict in Donbass, Ukraine. In 2017 the vehicles saw action in Syria.
