T-72M was first seen in 1980. This version replaced the optical range finder with a laser. The T-72 also has improved turret armor on the front. Resulting thickened front lead U.S. Tankers to nickname it the " Dolly Parton Tank".

The restoration of this vehicle took approximately 3 weeks costing between $30 and $40 thousand dollars. This vehicle will remain on display outside until the museum receives funding to provide a storage facility large enough to preserve it and the other pieces displayed here.
