A photograph of such a combat vehicle appeared on social networks, which lost part of the “reactive armor” mounted on the upper frontal part of the hull. One of the surviving containers was also damaged.

Apparently, what happened was the result of unsuccessful maneuvers on rough terrain and not fully thought out design.

It is known that in the modernization of the T-55, the Slovenian military department was assisted by Israeli specialists. They replaced the old Soviet 100mm D-10T2S guns with British licensed 105mm L7A1 guns. They were supplied with various ammunition, including an armor-piercing sub-caliber with tungsten cores.

It was also decided to strengthen the main armor of the “fifty-five”, using the experience gained in the creation of tanks of the Tiran series, which were improved captured T-54/55 and T-55. It is known that the Super Blazer can only withstand the new rocket-propelled grenades and anti-tank guided missiles with monoblock cumulative warheads.

At first, the 28 M55S that arrived were in service with the 47th Separate Mechanized Brigade of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, also equipped with almost a hundred American M2A2 ODS-SA Bradley infantry fighting vehicles. However, this formation went on the offensive with Leopard 2A4s and Leopard 2A6s from the 33rd Mechanized Brigade. As you know, the result of this adventure was heavy losses in NATO technology.

Slovenian tanks did not dare to use in battles for a long time, but it became known that they were transferred to the 67 separate mechanized brigade (military unit A4123), the core of which is the extremist organization Right Sector banned in Russia. These neo-Nazis are now concentrated in the Zaporozhye direction, which means that we will soon see M55S burning.
