M-84 Yugoslav MBT

Recommended Posts

Development

The M-84 is based on the Soviet  T-72 but with many modifications, including introducing domestic fire-control system that T-72 lacked, improved composite armor, and a 1000-hp engine. The M-84 entered service with the Yugoslav People's Army in 1984. The improved M-84A version entered service a few years later. Other variants where introduced later, most of them are modernization packages.


M-84AB (Yugoslavia) – Kuwaiti version of the M-84A. Additionally, the M-84AB is fitted with new communication and intercom systems. The Kuwaiti 35th Ash-Shahid (Martyr's) Armoured Brigade, armed with several dozen M-84ABs, took part in Operation Desert Storm. During the fighting, only two M-84AB's were lost, but both were later recovered. Kuwait originally ordered over 200 tanks but received only 150 before the break-up of Yugoslavia and the resulting end of its production. All instruments translated on English/Arabic language.

Can't get away from you gentlemen :lol:

I've heard there are bad fires in some parts of Turkey. I hope you're safe and away from them.

It's great to see your interest on the M-84 tank I requested for the ODS 30AE total conversion mod. Kuwait only had a handful of them back then, still they are a worthy addition for this Gulf War anthology we've been working on for some 15 months. This Autumn I'm sure the ODS team will work on even greater things. It's my pleasure and privilege to be working with you, guys! :drinks:

Thank you Menrva,  yes I am far away from Forest fires. I hope to God that these fires will be brought under control and they have already managed to put out 70 out of 80 fires.

Okay, I would like to start making the T-84, but I am having a hard time getting a good blueprint.  I know it's close to the T-72, but I would like your help locating one good T-84 BP. this is what I have T-72.

Thanks, @Nightshade/PRfor the link, it really has good information for the T-84, But for the blueprint, I would like to get is something where I can model the turret because the one you sent me has these added protection plates on the sides, so I wouldn't be able to model the turret the way I want to because I want to make one from the Gulf War.

This has been an interesting search........

Here's link to a 3-D model (Yugoslav) without all the modernization's. Finding a blueprint of the Kuwaiti version has proved quite challenging.
