During the first Gulf War in 1991, these strange conversions were seen on just a few T-55. They were not mass-produced, and only delivered to the commanders of the Armored Divisions. The aim of the upgrade (made by the maintenance units of the Iraqui 5th Armored Division before war’s time) was to improve the armored protection of these T-55 which mostly were several decades old. The armor plating added was comprised of laminated aluminum, ceramic and rubber plates.
