Product: 1:48 Rus. T-55 Battle Tank
Here is the latest addition to the ever-growing 1/48 Military Miniature Series, creating the mass-produced masterpiece T-55 medium tank that not only provided a base for later T-62, T-72 and T-80 designs still in use today, it spurred Western rivals on and contributed to the great East-West arms race of the Cold War. Its 100mm gun compared favorably with the West’s 90mm counterpart, and with HEAT rounds could defeat up to 390mm of armor. The T-55 was produced in the USSR, and under license in Czechoslovakia and Poland, and supplied to Soviet countries and clients worldwide – it even faced off against U.S.-designed M48s and M60A1s in the Middle East.
