Soviet T-55 Tank
Click on the images above for larger pictures.
The Soviet T-55 tank was the main battle tank of the Soviet Red Army and the armies of the Warsaw Pact during the 1960s.
The T-55 series eventually became the most-produced tank in history. Estimated production numbers for the series range from 86,000 to 100,000. They were replaced by the T-62, T-64, T-72, T-80, and T-90 in the Soviet and Russian Armies, but remain in use by up to 50 other armies worldwide, some having received sophisticated retrofitting and have been involved in many of the world's armed conflicts during the late 20th and early 21st century (notably in the Egpytian / Israeli conflicts, the Balkans and during the Gulf Wars).
Soviet tanks never directly faced their NATO Cold war adversaries in Europe. However, the T-55's first appearance in the West in 1960 spurred the US to develop the M60 Patton Tank.
The model has been built, airbrushed and weathered to an exceptional standard to represent a Soviet vehicle stationed in East Germany in the 1960s.
