What was originally fitted  in late 1950s / early 1960s as new build probably R-113 VHF (http://www.greenradio.de/e_r113.htm) or if early R-111 (https://www.radiomuseum.org/r/b_8865_r_111r11p_11.html) - Command tanks may also have had R-112 HF https://www.radiomuseum.org/r/b_8865_r_112r11p_11.html.

If modernised in later years after mid 1960s quite likely R-123 (P-123 in Cyrillic) became nearly universal as a late cold war Soviet/Warsaw Pact VHF tank and APC set.  The R-123 was around by the early 1970s and even has a (US) manual for use of captured kit see: http://radionerds.com/images/c/ce/R-123M_User_Manual_English.pdf
