History

LTTBM silouhette

  • The LTTB ( legkij tank tyazhelnogo bronirovanya – “light tank with heavy armor” ) was a Soviet light tank design proposed by the Kirov Leningrad Plant No. 174 as a possible replacement for the aging T-80 light tank in February 1944. Slightly bigger than the T-34-85, it was to be armed with a 85 mm S-53 gun. Indeed, this was a heavily armored light tank, almost as armored as the T-44.

  • Further development was stopped just as the hull blueprints had been drawn. Later, in 1946, the very same plant tried to continue the project under the name LTTBM. Intended to be a modernization of the first design, the LTTBM was packing an upgraded variant of the 85 mm D-5T-85 and also received a turret similar in design to that on the T-44. However, this attempt, too, was canceled shortly after. To this date, the reason for the cancelation of this project is still unknown.

    @DeezDucks I'm working on a tank with an oscillating turret. And I gotta say, the turret shapes are killing me. Think I might drop the project soon...

    Hey, just wondering but what designer is this?

    @CrazySniper3000 It has a very, very accurate gun for a scout. Penetration is kinda lackluster (it's tier 6 HT pen :/ ) but the accuracy makes up for that.
    Had lots of fun some days ago when I scouted a full HP Type 4 HT and he got rekt by our TDs. Or that time when I did a short scout run on Malinovka and the next second, almost their entire team was spotted xD
    Fun tank to play with, gotta admit. Much like the AMX 50 100, it's a keeper. Forever :)
