[Cover of T-55 Enigma]

Iraqi T-55 Enigma

By the time of the 1991 Gulf War, the Iraqi army had equipped a number of its T-55 main battle tanks with additional armour on the hull and turret; these were soon dubbed Enigma T-55s due to their mysterious background. Several were captured by the Coalition and shipped to the US and Europe, where they now reside in museums. This net.book details the real vehicle, and also has extensive drawings showing the armour's fit and dimensions!
