Text in original Preserved Tanks In Russia publication:

Soon after the introduction of the T-64, the Soviets introduced another main battle tank of apparently very similar design, the T-72. Competing designs had been requested from two design bureaux, and both implemented. It would appear that two of the vehicles in the Hall, Obiekt 172 and 172M are prototypes of the T-72 but based on T-64 chassis. It is of interest to note that the Obiekt 172 retains the six small steel-tyred roadwheels per side of the T-64.
