The T-55 tanks were a series of main battle tanks designed in the Soviet Union. T-54s and T-55s were involved in many of the world's armed conflicts during the late twentieth century. In 1961, development of improved protection systems began. The goal was to protect the crew from fast neutrons; adequate protection against gamma radiation was provided by the thick armour. The tank was equipped with a full chemical filtration system. The coaxial 7.62 mm SGMT machine gun was replaced by a 7.62 mm PKT machine gun. The hull was lengthened from 6.04 m to 6.2 m. The hull machine gun was removed, making space for six more main gun rounds. These changes increased the weight of the vehicle to 38 tonnes. This album of detailed photographs is invaluable for the modeller or enthusiast alike.
