By the end of the 60s the Soviet Army was equipped with the most sophisticated (for that period) and up-to-date armoured vehicles. T-64 tank, which entered into service in 1967, significantly surpassed its foreign opponents: M-60, "Leopard", and "Chieftain" in its main battle characteristics. But, starting 1965, the USA and BRD (Germany) began jointly developing a new generation of main battle tank: MVT-70, with higher mobility and strengthened weapons (combined cannon/anti tank missiles launcher "Shivella" of 155 mm calibre) and armour. The Soviet tank building industry had to provide an adequate response.
On the 16th of April 1968, Central Committee of CPSU and Cabinet of Ministers of the USSR published a joint decree according to which, SKB-2 (design bureau) at Kirov Plant was ordered to develop a new modification of a T-64 tank with gas turbine engine.
