Soviet Tanks


For decades, the Soviet Union placed a high priority on fielding a large and capable armored fighting force - to be spearheaded by the all-important tank.



There are a total of 56 Soviet Tanks in the Military Factory. Entries are listed below in alphanumeric order (1-to-Z). Flag images indicative of country of origin and not necessarily primary operator.


This listing also includes foreign-originated tanks adopted during the Soviet years as well as Lend-Lease tanks of World War 2. A complete list of Russian Tanks (including modern types and those passed on to the modern Russian military from the Soviet-era) can be found here
