This T-72 is displayed on a concrete pad on the grass near the Canadian Forces Exchange System (CANEX). It is equipped with a self-entrenching blade.
It was built in August 1977 at Nizhny Tagil (source: L. Delsing/AFVNDB). It was one of a few ex-DDR T-72s that came to Canada in the mid-1990s; when they arrived they came painted in Khaki Brown and some had vehicle kit still inside (source: recceboy/AFVNDB). It has a brass plate that says it is an East German T-72; it has since been painted in gloss green and is missing the tow rope and canvas mantlet cover as well as other small components (source: B. Clark/AFVNDB).
