There is of course much more happening in the build, so continue reading for more details…
With all the new Soviet equipment being presented you might sometimes lose track of what it is you can expect to see, so here is an overview of the Tank Destroyer and the medium and heavy tanks you can expect to either face or drive in the upcoming update!
The T-whatchamacallit, model year which-one? With so many awesome new tanks about to appear in the game it can be a bit difficult to tell them a part and remember their names, so to help out we’ve made this overview of the Soviet light tanks.
Having shown the Soviet Uniforms yesterday, and a lot of tanks in previous posts, we also need something to protect the Soviet soldiers from attacks from enemy airplanes, AND give the infantry a way to defend themselves against enemy armor! So here is a presentation of the Maxim M4 Quad Anti-air setup and the PTRD 1941 Anti-Tank Rifle.
This tank destroyer does not have a rotatable turret, but with the impressive long-barreled cannon it can even bring down the mighty Tiger I. Make sure to approach this tank from the back!
Just keep rolling, just keep rolling
The Samokhodnaya Ustanovka-85 is a medium Soviet tank destroyer. Its long barreled 85mm main cannon is able to penetrate even the Tiger I at the distance of 1000 meters. It has a low profile and good mobility.
This tank will be known as the tank which can’t be sneaked upon. Besides the impressive cannon it has a MG on the back of the turret! You will be watched and shot at from all angles. This tank will wreck a serious numbers of enemy tanks on the battlefield.
IS-2 Model 1944
The Soviet Josef Stalin heavy tank is a direct response to the German heavy tanks. Its thick 160mm armor and massive 122mm main gun makes it a deadly opponent to any tank on the battlefield.
This upgraded version of the soviet medium tank T-34/76 does not only has an armor upgrade, it also has a superior gun ready take on about every tank on the battlefield. It may be a bigger target as the T-34/85, but it’s a much tougher tank to fight against.
Who packs a bigger punch? The tank or the infantry.
T-34 85 Model 1944
The T-34/85 44 is an upgunned version of the famous Soviet T-34 tank. It features a bigger turret, sloped armor and a long barrel 85mm main gun. With an experienced crew it can counter even the mighty Tiger.
Update: Fixed the wrong text, armor thickness is what is listed below.
The mighty tank of the soviets will appear on the battlefield. This medium armored tank can use speed and agility as advantage to rule the battlefield and compete with the best Medium tanks in battle. Don’t be deceived by the small turret, it will crack your tank wide open with its cannon.
Going to have to try harder to penetrate this tank!
T-34 76 Model 1942
The T-34 is by many considered to be the finest tank of the second world war. It’s 12 cylinder diesel engine, the 65mm sloped armor and the 76.2mm cannon is a deadly combination on the battlefield.
