Text in original Preserved Tanks In Poland publication:

The label for this T-55 reads: “The T-55AMS tank is a variant the Polish-produced T-55AM tank, which in turn was a modified version of the Soviet T-55A tank that was produced in Poland under a license agreement. The T-55AMS tank was introduced to service with the Army of the People’s Republic of Poland in the latter 1980s. As the preceding T-55AM tank, the T-55AMS has been provided with MERIDA fire control system (incorporating a laser range finder and digital ballistic computer). DOBRAVA warning laser detection system and ERB smoke grenade launchers. The T-55AMS has been added with provisions for attaching engineering equipment: the KMT-5 mine-clearing device or the USCz-55 dozer blade. Each T-55 tank company comprised 10 tanks: one T-55AD2M (command vehicle), six T-55AM and three T-55AMS tanks.”
