Soviet light tank T-70

High-poly model of the so-called light tank T-70, which was adopted by Vastia in the summation of the Great Patriotic War and World War II.

T-70 - Soviet light tank during the Second World War. It was developed in October - November 1941 at the Gorky Automobile Plant (GAZ) under the leadership of Nikolai Alexandrovich Astrov, a leading developer of the entire domestic line of light tanks of that period. In January 1942, the T-70 was adopted by the Workers 'and Peasants' Red Army and mass-produced at several engineering plants. Production of the T-70 continued until October 1943, when, according to the results of hostilities this summer and the great need for the Red Army in self-propelled artillery units SU-76 at its base, it was decided to terminate its serial production. A total of 8,231 [1] [2] tanks of this type were produced.

Since the summer of 1942, light T-70 tanks took an active part in the battles of World War II. The culmination of their military service was the Battle of Kursk, after which they began to disappear from parts of the Red Army, although individual copies were used until the end of the war. By the number of vehicles produced, the T-70 became the second largest tank type in the Red Army in 1941-1945. On the basis of the T-70 at the end of 1942, a light self-propelled artillery installation of direct support for the SU-76 infantry was built, a number of prototypes of light tanks with improved weapons or ergonomics, and prototypes of anti-aircraft tanks. Shortly after the end of the war, the T-70 was withdrawn from service by the Soviet army. A sufficiently large number of such tanks have survived to our time in military museums and memorials of Russia, the CIS countries and foreign countries.
