T-44, possibly with a 100mm?

That was actually my first guess: T-44 100mm/early T-54, but I edited the post. Another fine example of: just trust the first guess, as it's often correct. Still, the initial T-54 was basically a reworked 100mm T-44.

Finding photos of the original makeup of these tanks is not easy. So many have been reworked and improved.

I don't have anything in particular I plan on doing with them. Just had some time on my hands and JMass and Spellir are doing so well with the WWII models.

If we get enough of these to work with they could easily constitute an expansion of their own. I have a lot of material for NATO vs WP engagements.

Good Hunting.

The front road wheel was that far forward on a T54?
Looks like a 3 bottle design. You had to have at least 3 bottles of vodka before designing it. I guess they hadn't collected all the gearbox gear shavings from them yet so they were a little short on steel.

Great looking models BTW.

There seems to be a big gap.

I do have to build something for it to play with. Probably an M-47.

Design history guess
Group A, chassis done
Group B, we need a bigger gun
Group C, then we need a bigger turret
Group A, we make the chassis longer
Group A, what to do about wheel?
...

Or an M-48, M-60. Chieftain is a bit out of the question for this tank to deal with.

Good Hunting.

Chieftain was too advanced, the Centurion was the same era though.

Ah yes, Centurion was the one. That was probably the best tank design ever produced by Britain.

Good Hunting.
