Comments: This amphibious tank was used in the 1971 Indo-Pak war in the former East Pakistan (Bangladesh). The PT-76 MBTs were kept in reserve status until recently and have since been disposed of. They are now used in a variety of roles - from target practice by the Indian Air Force (IAF) to static memorials at various military establishments around the country.
