Details

1. Cannons

  1. Hotchkiss: Based on the infantry gun design, this World War 1 semi-automatic 37mm gun was equipped with a vertical sliding wedge and spring recoil mechanisms.
  2. B-3 37mm: 37mm anti-tank gun B-3 model 1930. Soviet 37mm artillery gun designed to be mounted on armored vehicles. Officially entered service in 1931. It was equipped with a semi-automatic horizontal sliding wedge. Two-turreted T-26 model 1932 and BT-2 tanks carried such guns.
  3. L-11 76mm: The L-11 was a 76mm tank gun. It was designed at the Leningrad Kirov Factory design bureau by I.A. Makhanov. It was used on T-34 and KV-1 tanks.
  4. F-34 76mm: 76mm tank gun was designed under the direction of V.G. Grabin, chief designer and Major-General, at Factory No. 92 and entered servi e at the end of 1940. T-34 tanks carried such guns since 1941.
  5. 20K 45mm: 45mm anti-tank gun model 1932/1938 designed on the basis of the 45mm 19K anti-tank gun at the design bureau of the Kalinin Factory No. 8 near Moscow. The gun entered mass production in 1932.
  6. M-10 152mm: World War II 152mm Soviet howitzer. The work on its design started in 1937 under the direction of F.F. Petrov. The howitzer remained in mass production from 1939 to 1941., was used throughout World War II, and was in service until the late 1950s.

2. Chassis

  1. Leaf Spring: A leaf spring is commonly used for the suspension in vehicles. It transmits force from the wheels on the bogie frame and the body. It prevents the variations in the road surface encountered by the wheels from being transmitted to the vehicle body.
  2. Christie: A coil-spring independent suspension. This suspension system was developed bv J.Walter Christie, an American engineer, for wheel-track tanks. It has considerable advantages over the most commonly used leaf spring suspension.
  3. Blocked: Suspension of the tank has several rollers forming the cart connected to the frame via common sprints. It allows to have low-speed smoothness, due to this fact it was widespread in the 30s of 20th century.
  4. Rubber-coated Wheel: The wheel with internal shock absorber is a type of a road wheel or a return roller with a small shock-absorbing rubber ring inside it around the center hub.
  5. Improved Tracks: Every other tract link had a guide horn which served to mesh with the sprocket wheel and hold the track in position. Each track had holes for fastening additional spuds.
  6. Torsion Bar: Torsion bar suspension was to be installed on the T-34 as an upgrade as early as in 1940, but the outbreak of World War II cancelled the plans. The first production medium tank to receive the torsion bar suspension was the T-44 developed from the T-34.
  7. Rubber-metal Joint: Rubber-metal joint has rubberized pins pressed into orifices of link eyes. When tracks are in motion, the rubber eliminates sliding friction between the pin and link eyes, creating internal friction instead.

3. Design Bureau

  1. Tools: Universal toolkit for creating new modules for armored vehicles.
  2. Commander radio: Commander radio was equipped with amplified radio receiver and transmitter that increased communication range. Communication range increases significantly after equipping the additional antenna.
  3. Coated Optics: Optics with finest films on the lens increase the light transmittance of the optical system. The user of such optics significantly improves tank vision range.
  4. Grousers: The projections on the outer side of the tracks. Intended to improve the adherence of the tracks with the ground, to increase the flotation and to prevent slippage.
  5. Muzzle Brake: The device was used on armored vehicles to reduce the recoil length, and enable mounting more powerful guns in smaller turrets.
  6. Stabilizer: Gun stabilizer is a device that facilitates aiming in motion. It allows much greater accuracy while moving combined with a higher average speed. The device usually includes mechanical or optical gyro and servo mechanisms.
  7. Spall liner: Spall liners made of materials such as Kevlar are commonly fitted to the interior surface of armored vhielces to mitigate the effects of HESH spalling.
  8. Rammer: Artillery gun mechanism designed to ram the artillery projectile or its elements into the tube. There are spring, pneumatic and electric rammers.

4. Designers

5. Engine

  1. Four-cylinder: It was a vertical, four-cylinder, four-stroke, air-cooled engine designed by A.A. Mikulin. The engine was capable of a maximum of 35 horsepower at 1800rpm and was later improved to 40 horsepower.
  2. V-type: A V-type engine is a common configuration of an internal combustion engine having the cylinders aligned in two banks at an angle from 10 degree to 120 degree to each other, forming a V. Most V-type engines have their cylinders set an angle of 45, 60 or 90 degrees.
  3. Reduction Gear: Reduction gear is a transmission gear which transmits the torque from the engine to the gearbox and ensures their conjoint functionning. The inlet reduction gear is used when the engine is placed transversely.
  4. MBT Transmission: It was a five-speed gearbox with an improved cooling system. The conical pair was removed from the transmission which permitted fitting a more compact gearbox. The transverse engine placement increased the size of the fighting compartment.
  5. V-2: A Soviet water-cooled V-12 four-stroke diesel tank engine with an air-blast injection. It went into mass production on September 1, 1939. The BT-7M, the T-34, the KV, the T-50 and other tanks were equipped with it.
  6. Planetary Gear Train: Planetary gear train consists of a carrier rotating to carry on e gear, called the planet gear, around the other, called the sun gear. It can be assembled so that the planet gear rolls on the inside of the pitch circle of a fixed, outer gear ring.
  7. Friction Clutch: Friction clutch is a unit which transmits torque through sliding friction force. Friction clutch is used to steer and decelerate the vehicle.
  8. M-50T: A serial marine V12-cylinder diesel engine developing 1050 horsepower at 1850 rpm. This type of engine was installed on the IS-7 tank which had no equal for its combat qualities.

6. Hulls

  1. Infantry Tank Hull: The infantry tank hull was made of rolled armor steel plates. The plates were equally thick and provided ballistic protection. The hull of the tank is of riveted construction, made of armored plates resembled on a frame.
  2. BT Hull: The hull of the BT tank familyu was of classic configuration. It wasn’t sloped except for the front glacis plate that came to a squared point so that the front set of wheels was steerable when the tank was in wheeled mode.
  3. T-34 Hull: The T-34 hull was welded from rolled and homogeneous steel plates. It also feature very advanced, ballistically effective, sloped armor on all sides that provided protection in excess of what armor thickness alone would indicate.
  4. MBT Hull: The main battle tank hull was low-silhouetted and welded from rolled and homogeneous steel plates. It also feature advanced, ballistically effective sloped armor of varying thickness.
  5. Side Skirt: Thin armor plates or even metal mesh can be attached as side skirts to protect the tracks and to provide better protection from shaped charge and HE shell effects.
  6. “Pike”: The heavy tank hull (except the glacis plate) was welded from rolled armor plates. It featured a cast front glacis plate with well-sloped armor which was welded to the rest of the hull.
  7. Heavy Tank Hull: The heavy tank hull (except the glacis plate) was welded from rolled armored plates. It featured a cast front glacis plate with well-sloped armor which was welded to the rest of the hull.
  8. Reinforced Upper Glacis: Reinforced upper glacis plate significantly increased the survivability of armored vehicles on the battlefield.

7. Armor

  1. Rolled: Armor made of steel rolled plates. Widely used for light armored vehicles.
  2. Welded: Welded hulls and turrets were introduced in the early 1930s and, as opposed to riveted ones, were made as a monocoque.
  3. Sloped: Sloped armor improves the armor’s level of protection at the point of impact by increasing the thickness measured inthe horizontal plane, and by augmenting the angle of attack of the projectile.
  4. Cast: The thickness of the cast armor can be controlled quite accurately and it can be used when cmplex shapes need to be cast. It also allows great reduction in cutting and welding operations.
  5. Spaced: Spaced armor is an element of the passive armor protection. It reduces the shaped charge’s penetrating power. Armor plates are mounted so that they are separated from the armor below it. The armor is made of fiber reinforced rubber, metal plates or meshes.
  6. Pike: The Pike Nose design incorporated two (left and right) highly inclined upper front plates meeting at a large angle, an inclined bottom plate and the driver’s comp[artment roof.
  7. Applique: Applique armor includes sheets, stamped steel, castings and other armor elements added to the hull and turret with help of fittings (screws, bolts, studs, etc.) to improve their protection.

8. Turrets

  1. MS-1 Turret: The MS-1 has a hexagonal turret with slightly sloped vertical armo and a commander’s cupola on top. The armament was placed in the front part of the turret the gun to the left and the machine gun to the right.
  2. BT-Turret: Cylindrical riveted turret with a beveled front and top sides made of the rolled homogeneous armor bolted and riveted together. The turret provided protection only against small-arms ammunition, shell fragments and small or medium caliber mortars.
  3. Nut Turret: In summer 1942, Uralmash foundries producing turrets for the T-34 faced problems with meeting production program reqwuirements due to the shortage of “liquid armor”. The introduction of a new hexagonal turret for the T-34, known as the “hex-nut” postponed the crisis.
  4. Elliptical Turret: New elliptical turret on a widened turret ring with increased ammunition. Allowed for installing more powerful armament. Command models fitted with radio had reduced ammunition.
  5. Machine Gun Turret: This turret was widely used on the early infantry tanks and multi-turreted heavy vehicles. The T-26, the T-28 and the T-35 are perfect examples of tanks with such turrets.
  6. Cast Turret: Cast hexagonal turret with sloped sides. The turret front side included a pistol port with a gun mantle. The structure of the turret can be technoologically devided into three parts: turret ring, hull plate and turret roof.
  7. Hemispherical Turret: One-piece homogeneous cast armor steel turret had a simple flattened hemispherical shape. Its advantages included no only reduced weight, but also increased protection. The glacis plate was heavily sloped for better ballistics protection.
  8. IS Turret: IS turret had a streamlined shape and was cast steel. The sides of the turret were angled towards the vertical for better protection. The turret front was cast separately and comprised of a four-sphere intersection. The turret ring was marked by thousands to fire from defilade.
  9. T-34-85 Turret: The Battle of Kursk demonstrated that the gun of the T-34 was no longer as efective as it was before. To mount an improved gun, a new turret design with enlarged ring was developed. The T-34-85 turret was designed on the basis of the prototype T-43 turret project.

9. Light Tanks

  1. MS-1: The MS-1 was a Soviet light infantry tank of the 1920s. Designed in 1925-1927 on the basis of the French Renault FT-17 and the Italian Fiat 3000. The first Soviet-designed tank with a total of 959 vehicles (excluding prototype) manufactured from 1928 through 1931.
  2. BT-2: The BT-2 was manufactured from 1931 through 1933. Its standard armament included the 37mm B-3 tank gun and the 7.62mm DT machine gun. The BT-2 was the first production tank designed with a wheel-track system and a candle suspension. Its armor provided ballistic protection.
  3. BT-5: The BT-5 was a further development of theBT-2 intended to replace the predecessor in service. Their hulls were almost identical. The main difference between the BT-2 and the BT-5 was a new elliptical turret with an enlarged turret ring and the 45mm 20K gun.
  4. T-46: The T-46 was a Soviet prototype light wheel-track tank of the 1930s. Designed as an infantry tank and included many modules of the T-26 light tank.
  5. T-26: The T-26 was a Soviet light tank developed on the basis of the British Vickers Mark E tank purchased in 1930. It entered service int the U.S.S.R. in 1931. The most common T-26 version was the single cylindrical turret modification with a 45mm gun.
  6. T-70: T-70 – Soviet Light Tank of World War II. The tank was developed in autumn 1941 on the GAZ by N.A.Astrov. It was adopted in January 1942. According to the results of summer hostilities in 1943, it was decided to discontinue its release.
  7. Valentine II: The Mk. III Valentine was a British light infantry tank designed by Vickers -Armstrong corporation in 1938. A total of 9275 vehicles were produced by the United Kingdom and Canada from June 1940 through April 1944. Supplied in large numbers to the USSR under Lend-Lease.
  8. BT-7: The BT-7 was a Soviet wheel-track tank of the 1930-1940s. Being the third vehicle in the BT series of Soviet light tanks-, it has a redesigned welded hull and a new M-17 engine. Like the Bt-5, it was equipped with the 45mm 20K gun.
  9. A-20: The A-20 was a Soviet light wheel-track tank. The only prototype aof the A-20 was tested together with the A-32 in field trials at Kubinka in September 1939. The improved version of the A-32 was approved for production as the T-34.
  10. T-50: The T-50 was a Soviet light tank of the World War II era. Designed at Factory No. 184 in Leningrad in 1940 under the direction of S.A. Ginzburg in cooperation with designers L.S. Troyanov and I.S. Bushnev. Only a small number of tanks were produced, the plans for mass production were cancelled by the war.

10. Tests

  1. Penetrability: Penetrability tests involve firing at the armored plate. Then, the number of shells penetrated or got stuck in (and to what extent) the plate are analyzed carefully.
  2. Off-road performance: Off-road performance test include testing of the tank on the soft and medium surface, the ability to run over the natural and artificial obstacles.
  3. Shelling: Shelling tests include the testing of a tank armor firing from AT and identification of vulnerable parts of the hull.
  4. Endurance: Endurance tests determine the ability of the vehicle to work without derangement with certain amount of mileage and fire the appropriate number of shots. Expensive, but the most reliable way to get a complete image of the tank.
  5. Ammo selection: New weapon system testing starts with the ammo selection that presents the designed cannon muzzle velocity. At the same time the abutment pressure peak is identified.
  6. Road: Road tests determine the characteristics of the tank track assembly, its reliability and maximum capacity it can support.
  7. Dispersion: Dispersion tests include the firting at a vertical shield at a distance of 1000 meters. After that, the probable deviation of shots are measured and compared with the design.

11. Medium tanks

  1. T-34 Model 1943: The T-34 was a legendary Soviet medium tank of the World War II era produced from 1940 to mid-1944. It was the mainstay of the Red Army. Model 1943 was equipped with the hexagonal turret (“hex-nut”) housing the F-34 tank gun.
  2. T-28: The T-28 was a triple-turreted Soviet medium tank of the interwar period. Desi9gned by the engineers of the period Bolshevik factory’s OKMO department under the direction fo S. A. Ginzburg in 1930-1932. Became the first large-scale production tank in the USSR.
  3. T-34 Model 1940: The T-34 was a legendary Soviet medium tank of the World War II era produced from 1940 to mid-1944. It was the mainstay of the Red Army. Model 1943 was equipped with the hexagonal turret (“hex-nut”) housing the F-34 tank gun.
  4. T-34-85: The T-34-85 was the final modification of the T-34 tank. A new turret was designed on the bais of the prototype T-43, thus allowing a powerful 85mm gun tro be mounted which greatly increased the combat effectiveness of the tank.
  5. T-43: T-43 – Soviet prototype medium tank of World War II. It was based on T-34, differing from it by significant changes in construction, and was intended to replace it.
  6. KV-13 The KV-13 (Object 233) was an experimental Soviet medium tank of the World War II period. It was developed in the SKB-2 design bureau of the Chelyabinsk Kirov Plant in the late 1941 as a universal tank, intended to replace both T-34 medium tanks and KV heavy tanks.
  7. T-44 The T-44 (Object 136) was a Soviet medium tank developed in 1934-1944 at the design bureau of Uralvagonzavod under the direction of A.A. Morozov. Though it resembled the T-34-85, it was an entirely new vehicle design intended to supersede the T-34 in the Red Army.
  8. A-44 The A-44 was the project of a Soviet medium tank of the World War II Period. K.Y. Voroshilov approved it and the work was resumed. The project was successful but had to be discontinued due to the outbreak of the war.
  9. T-54: The T-54 (Object 137) was a Soviet medium tank. The T-54 entered full production in 1947, but its design was undergoing constant improvements. The T-55, being a modification of the T-54 incorporating the NBC protection for the crew, entered production in 1958.
  10. T-62A: The T-62A was designed on the basis of the T-55 medium tank taking into account the Object 142 engineering experience. Differed from the T-55 in the hull and turret design and in a more powerful gun with the stabilization system.

12. Heavy Tanks

  1. Churchill: British heavy infantry tank of the World War II period supplied to the USSR under Lend-Lease.
  2. T-35: The T-35 was a five-turreted heavy tank holding guns and machine guns and protected by the anti-bullet armor.

    @Christian Sturgell: I have fixed the “Medium Tank” section by replacing the T-50 with A-44. Thanks for your feedback!

  4. Christian Sturgell

    I am currently missing one medium tank, and it seems you repeat the T-50 as both medium and light. Plz fix
