The T-72 Scarab of the Czech Company Excalibur keeps the main armament of the standard Soviet-made T-72 main battle tank which consists of one 125 mm (2A46) smoothbore gun fitted with a light-alloy thermal sleeve and a bore evacuator. The turret is fitted with a carousel automatic loader mounted on the turret floor and also on the rear wall of the turret.

A 7.62 mm PKT machine gun is mounted coaxially to the right of the main armament but the manual 12.7 mm machine gun mounted on the standard T-72 has been replaced by a remotely operated weapon station armed with the NSVT anti-aircraft heavy machine gun.

The ballistic protection of the T-72 was substantially increased while maintaining its outstanding mobility. For the T-72 Scarab, the front of the hull is fitted with ERA Explosive Reactive Armour, front and sides of the turret are equipped with passive armour and rear part of the turret is protected with wire cage armour.

To keep its mobility, the T-72 Scarab is motorized with the V-84 engine developing 618 kW replacing the original engine V-46-6. It can run at a maximum road speed of 60 km/h with a maximum cruising range of 500 km.

In addition the observation and sighting instruments have been upgraded in order to be able to operate in the passive mode and the single observation prisms have been added laser filters.
