It's within timefrime and completely indigenous.
Unless 95 is the name of some sort of component?

Please note Übergangsvariante is a term used by historians, the NVA did not use it, and much less its tankers who barely made a difference between M and M1...
- Übergangsvariante 1:
A T-72 with laser range finder, skirts for the tracks, better engine and more ammo; an import from the USSR 1981
- Übergangsvariante 2:
A T-72M with additional armour on the glacis; an import from Poland 1986
The T-72s were continually upgraded, so even these two auxilliary terms don't help much. The T-72M1 from 1988 had slightly improved hydraulics, the T-72M1 from 1989 had a better radio etc.
The T-72S which the NVA planned to get would have a domestic FCS and TIS. Of course, by the end of 1989, these plans had to be aborted, like the whole T-72 upgrade and import programme.

Price? Svirs are expensive.
The DDR may come to the same conclusion.
