Produced 1940-1958. This is medium sized Soviet tank, that was used in WW2. The designing was satrted in 1937 and by the 1940 it was finished and sent to production.

In its time it was a very important piece of enginering. When it was first built it was considered to be one of the best tanks with its well balanced firepower, mobility, armor and other factors. The downside was that it was very uncomfortable for the crew and its perfomance suffered because of that shomewhat.
