Available to PACT forces, the KPz T-55AM is the upgraded variant of the KPz T-55.

HistoryEdit

In the 1970s and for early 1980s the T-54 and T-55 was to be the standard front line East German tank. Some 2,500 were in service during this period. Some sources indicate that in the late 1970s some 600 T34/85s remained in storage.

Between 1984 and 1989 East Germany, along with Poland and Czechoslovakia, began an upgrade program that was similar to the Soviet T-55M/AM program. This program included equipping vehicles with additional armour and upgraded fire control (T-55AM2). Some vehicles were also fitted with Bastion (T-55AM2B).

Starting in 1978 T-72 tanks were introduced to the East German army. Initially, only one battalion of the 9th Panzer Division was equipped with these vehicles. Progressively additional battalions were converted, but at a relatively slow rate.
