You know... There is not that much information on the English web about this tank. I think we shoudl ask our Romanian freinds to please provide us some info. It seems like a very interesting specimen.

As far as I know the tank has just entered the Romanian armed forces so it is very new and has shown a good performance according to those familiar with it, however it is also very rare and most Romanian units still have to do with the older tanks.Constantzeanu 03:56, 5 January 2006 (UTC)

I have a book about all the armored vehicles that have been in military service in the 20th century as well as the developments for the 21st century. This includes the TR-85 M1 and it goes into some detail of the tank (slightly more then the article provides. However, the book also states the the TR-85 M1 is not the most advanced tank in Romanian service. That would be the TR-125, a license produced T-72, as well as the TM-800, an upgraded TR-580 (the Romanian license-built T-55). While the TR-85 M1 may be the most NATO compatible ,as it uses Leopard 2 engine,it is not the most advanced version and probably not the pride of Romanian formations as the article notes. Should I correct this?—Preceding unsigned comment added by SAWGunner89 (talkcontribs)

The TR-85 entered service in 1987. The TR-85 M1 with the lengthened turret is an upgrade of old vehicles, not a new tank. The TR-125 is a lengthened T-72 developed in 1989, but apparently did not enter mass production. Michael Z. 2007-10-13 23:42 Z

The armored engineer vehicle is called DMT-85M1 (Dragor de Mine pe sasiu de Tanc), not DTM. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ulttras (talkcontribs) 13:49, 5 June 2010 (UTC)
