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.
