Something cool I never knew about the T-54: To replace the barrel, it is necessary to lift the turret off the turret ring and pull the entire cannon assembly out the back. The turret is designed to tilt forward and stay propped open to make this easier to do in the field:

Now, that would be a cool diorama! :D


One could probably do it using one of the new Miniart kits too given the level of detail they include:

Just an odd thought, how about an IS-3 modified to serve as a TEL for an early Soviet derivative of the V-2?  Possibly with an engineering vehicle towing the fuel tanks to remote pre-located launch sites.

Basically, that was what the SCUD system was.  The missile was an improve A-4(V-2), the TEL was a modified T-10 (JS-3).

According to the recent book, the T-10 shared some common background with the IS-3, but was a much different design   Still, I do agree that the SCUD TEL comes close to what I was thinking of, I was considering something similar but for the late 1940's, possibly even using captured V-2 components to a large extent.

Two questions:

1.) I've heard that autoloaders for the T-72B3 and T-90 have been modified to accommodate armour-piercing rounds with longer penetrators.  Is it safe to assume that these are the only T-72 variants that are equipped with such an autoloader (thus meaning that Central and Eastern European T-72s do not have it)?

2.) What is the maximum projectile length that older T-72 autoloaders can accommodate?

Thanks in advance.

Urban warfare mod for T-54/55 or Type 59/69 loader.

The Tarmour heavy armored personnel carrier is a recent Indian development. It is a conversion of ageing Soviet T-55 medium tanks. India operates around 900 T-55 tanks, that are in process of being phased out. This heavy APC shows some Israel's influence in its design.

   Protection of the Tarmour heavy APC is similar to MBTs. It uses Kanchan heavy composite armor, which is broadly similar to the British Chobham. Explosive reactive armor blocks can be added for improved protection. It is claimed that Tarmour's armor provides all-round protection against RPG-7 rockets. Vehicle is fitted with NBC protection and automatic fire suppression systems.

   The Tarmour is armed with a remotely controlled 12.7-mm machine gun. This weapon station is operated by vehicle's commander.

   Vehicle has a crew of two and provides accommodation for 9 troops. Troops enter and leave the vehicle through the rear door.

   The Tarmour heavy APC is based on a Soviet T-55 medium tank chassis, but has a raised superstructure. It is worth mentioning that India operates a number of ageing Soviet T-55 medium tanks, that pose little threat to modern main battle tanks. Original engine of the T-55 was replaced with more powerful Detroit Diesel 8V92TA diesel, developing 850 hp.

   Vehicle can be tailored to suit specific operational requirements. It can be also used as ambulance, combat engineering vehicle, armored earth mover or mine plough.
