NEW Tech Tree Vehicles: Romanian TR Tanks

September 23, 2022

The Eastern Alliance receives three warriors that are well protected and built with reliable guns: the Romanian TR tanks.

Branching off from the TVP T 50/51 ’51, the Romanian TRs are the latest Tech Tree tanks to join the Eastern Alliance. Learn more about each vehicle below and continue to the end of the article for information on Challenges that will reward you if you take them on!

  • Era: Escalation (2)
  • Purchase Cost: 5,400,000 Silver
  • Unlocked with the TVP T 50/51 ’51

After the Prague Spring of 1968, and the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia, Romania opted to reduce its reliance on the Soviet Union. It used the successful T-55 main battle tank as the basis for two new tanks produced with domestic and foreign components: the TR-85 and the TR-580. The TR-580 entered service in 1982. Its name comes from its 580-hp engine.

  • Class: Medium

  • Unlocked with the TR-580

Originally, Romania had planned to fit its indigenous main battle tanks with an 800-hp engine, similar to the Leopard 1. However, trade restrictions between Warsaw Pact nations and NATO prevented Romania from importing one for the TR-580. As a result, Romania pursued an aggressive reverse engineering program to make its own engine, which it used with components such as a 100mm gun with a fume extractor and thermal sleeve to create the TR-85.

Built at the end of the 1980s, the TR-125 was Romania’s version of the highly successful T-72 (which it designed by reverse-engineering the existing T-72s in its fleet). Compared to its Soviet predecessor, the TR-125 had thicker armor, a longer hull, and a heavier, more powerful V12 diesel engine. However, it used the same 125mm gun, which gave the TR-125 its name.
