    Fabbri - FAI-M (Ford-A Izhorskiy) - Soviet Armoured Car 1933






















    The FAI (Ford-A Izhorskiy) armoured car was an armoured car used by the Soviet Union from the early 1930s to early 1940s. The FAI was built on the chassis of the GAZ A car, a licensed copy of the US Ford A. This chassis was the major weakness of the FAI. Most commercial car chassis were not powerful enough to move a useful amount of armour or firepower on the battlefield i.e. armoured cars based on commercial car chassis were for the most part, road-bound, thinly armoured and lightly armed.

    The large size image....





    The FAI main armament is a single 7.62 mm DT machine-gun in a revolving turret. The armour of the FAI was sufficient only to stop most shell fragments and small arms fire, but could not withstand any kind of cannon or heavy machine-gun fire. It was also very vulnerable to mines.






    The FAI was built in relatively small numbers before being replaced by the very similar BA-20 (the model in next up-coming post).

    Fabbri - BA-20 - Soviet Armoured Car 1934






















    The BA-20 was an armored car developed in the Soviet Union in 1934. It was intended to replace the FAI and its field trials were completed in 1935. It was later produced from 1936 to 1942 numbering 4800 units. The principal use of the BA-20 was as a scout vehicle.

    The BA-20 is often mistaken for the very similar FAI armoured car. The main recognition feature is the flat roof of the BA-20; the FAI has two dome-shaped covers over the driver's and co-driver's stations.







    The BA-20 had a rear-wheel drive chassis, which made it unable to provide good off-road capabilities and having weak armor, this vehicle barely is capable of protecting the crews from enemy's machine-gun fire. It was used in the early stages of World War 2 but were later found obsolete and were retired in the early postwar years.

    Fabbri - T-26 M.1933 - Soviet Light Infantry Tank






















    The T-26 tank was a Soviet light infantry tank used during many conflicts of the 1930s as well as during World War II. It was a development of the British Vickers 6-Ton tank and is widely considered one of the most successful tank designs of the 1930s.

    It was produced in greater numbers than any other tank of the period, with more than 11,000 units produced. This version (above model) had a new cylindrical turret with a large rear niche equipped with a 71-TK-1 radio station with a hand-rail antenna around the turret (so-called radio tanks).

    Though nearly obsolete by the beginning of World War II, the T-26 was the most numerous tank in the Red Army's armored force during the German invasion of the Soviet Union in June 1941.






    The T-26 was reliable and simple to maintain, and its design was continually modernised between 1931 and 1941. However, no new models of the T-26 were developed after 1940.

    The upgraded T-26 model 1939 version new conical turret has a better anti-bullet resistance but still uses the same welded hull as the T-26 mod. 1933 produced in 1935–1936. Underturret box was sloped (at 23°) with 20 mm side armoured plates and the turret featured an increase to 20 mm at 18 degrees sloping.






    This upgraded T-26 was designated as T-26-1 (known as the T-26 mod. 1939 in modern sources). There were subsequent attempts to thicken the front plate, but T-26 production soon ended in favor of other designs, such as the T-34.

    Fabbri - BT-7 - Soviet Light Tank






















    The cruiser tank (also called cavalry tank or fast tank) was a British tank concept of the inter-war period for tanks designed to function as modernised armoured and mechanised cavalry. The BT-7 was the last of the BT series of Soviet cavalry tanks that were produced in large numbers between 1935 and 1940 - with up to 4965 units produced.

    BT-7 were lightly armoured, but reasonably well-armed for their time, and had much better mobility than other contemporary tank designs.







    The British having witnessed demonstrations of Soviet tank designs, including the BT tank using the Christie suspension made plans for such tanks of their own as well. This gave birth to the British Cruiser Mk III. This tank was fast but however under-armoured and mechanically unreliable.








    This design was later used as the basis for the Cruiser Mk IV and later the Cruiser Mk VI - also known as the Crusader tank - which probably was the best-known cruiser in World War II.






    Over 5,000 Crusader tanks were manufactured and they made important contributions to the British victories during the North African Campaign of 1941.

    The large size image....





    The T-28 was designed to complement the heavier T-35 (also multi-turreted - see next post), with which it shared turret designs.





    While this tank did not have great success in combat, it did play an important role as a development project for Soviet tank designers. A series of new ideas and solutions that were tried out on the T-28 were later incorporated in future models.








    Production of the T-28 ended in early 1941, when the new T-34 came to replace it as the main force of Soviet medium tanks.

    Fabbri - T-35 - Soviet Heavy Tank

























    The T-35 went into service in 1933. It is a multi-turreted tank i.e. five turrets in all - perhaps inspired by battleship design, an old idea taking its roots in the “land battleship concept”. This heavy tank of the interwar period and early Second World saw limited production and service with the Red Army as it was slow and mechanically unreliable.

    Operational Range - 150 km
    Speed - 30 km/h






    The large size image....







    The multi-turret configuration, large size and high price of the T-35 was clearly mirroring the role of a battleship on land. By 1941, the T-35 is completely obsolete, but with the war with the Germans imminent they were not withdrawn at this stage.

    As there were no replacement tank available in numbers it was decided to let the vehicle remain in front line service to allow the rigors of use to wear them out and then replace them at a later date. As the T-35 had such terrible crew escape prospects (11 crews in all) in the case of it being hit this would seem to doom large numbers of men to their deaths.





    After disappointing results with the T-35 heavy tank, Soviet tank designers started drawing up replacements which gave birth to the KV-1 heavy tank. The KV's strengths included armor that was impenetrable by any tank-mounted weapon then in service by the Germans at the start of the war in 1941 - except at point-blank range.









    The Germans too experimented with large, multi-turreted tanks too like the Russian's T-28 and T-35. Named Neubaufahrzeug (German for "new construction vehicle" - a cover name as the project was developed in secrecy) this tank was heavy and slow.






    Neubaufahrzeug tanks were not considered successful therefore only five were made and these were primarily used for propaganda purposes.

    The BA-64 was a 4×4 (4 wheel drive) light armoured car, employed by the Soviet Army from 1942 for reconnaissance and liaison tasks. It would remain the only vehicle of this class in service during World War 2, with a production of up to 9110 armored vehicles from April 1942 to early 1946.

    Speed - 80 km/h




    The large size image....


    The BA-64 was nicknamed 'Bobik' (a popular dog name/nickname) by its crews. The armor of the BA-64 was not very thick, but by clever use of faceting (angling plates in different directions, causing ricochets) a fairly good degree of protection was achieved.



    This sloped armour had some similarities to the German Sd kfz 222 scout car design. This was not surprising as a captured Sd Kfz 222 was examined and studied by the Russians and some of the features were later used on their BA-64 design.

    An armoured personnel carrier (APC) is a type of armoured fighting vehicle (AFV) designed to transport infantry to the battlefield. APCs are colloquially referred to as 'battle taxis' or 'battle buses', among other things.







    For the American the most prolific APC used is their M113 (which 80,000 units were produced since 1960) and for the Soviet the BTR series.







    The idea of APC was not a new one. During World War II, half-tracks like the American M3 and German SdKfz 251 played a role similar to the post-war APCs.

    The PT-76 is a Soviet amphibious light tank which was introduced in the early 1950s and soon became the standard reconnaissance tank of the Soviet Army and the other Warsaw Pact armed forces. It was widely exported to other friendly states, like India, Iraq, North Korea and North Vietnam. Overall, some 25 countries used the PT-76.

    The tank's full name is Floating Tank–76 (Plavayushchiy Tank). 76 stands for the caliber of the main armament: the 76.2 mm D-56T series rifled tank gun.







    The PT-76 is used in the reconnaissance and fire-support roles. Its chassis served as the basis for a number of other vehicle designs, many of them amphibious, including the BTR-50 armored personnel carrier, the ZSU-23-4 self-propelled antiaircraft gun, the ASU-85 airborne self-propelled gun and the 2K12 Kub anti-aircraft missile launch vehicle.



    PT-76s along with T-54, T-55, Type 59 (Chinese) tanks formed the bulk of the NVA (North Vietnamese Army) armored forces in the Vietnam War.
