The Russian T-32 Medium Battle Tank

The Russian T-32 Medium Battle Tank started out as the A-32. The vehicle utilised the famous Christie suspension system, slopped steel armour and a 76.2mm main gun. The vehicle performed well in trials but combat experience in Finland saw the armour thickness increased and this vehicle entered production as a Medium Battle Tank in 1939.

The T-32 would later on be further developed in to the famous T-34, which would earn the possible title as the best tank of World War 2.
