The demand for a medium tank design in the Soviet Union had led to the development of the TG-1 in 1929. However, its power plant proved highly unreliable leading the abandonment of the project in 1931. But the need for an infantry support tank that was still capable of dealing with enemy tanks remained.

T-28 obr 1933 / 1938 Heavy Tankovy Platoon (SBX24) Under the supervision of S.A. Ginsburg, the team at the testing department for the mechanical design at the Leningrad Machine Factory promptly bought together the required elements in a new multi-turreted tank design. By 1932, test models were ready for field trials; designated as the T-28 it was amongst some of the world’s first medium tank designs.

When the T-28 tank went into service in 1933 it was a cutting edge design for its time and remained a formidable sight on the battlefield during the battles of 1939. Once it was armed with the long 76mm L-10 gun on the introduction of the 1938 model, it could easily knock out most enemy tanks.

Designed by Evan Allen
Painted by Chris Townley & Casey Davies

Limited Vision
In order to pack more into small tanks, some tank designers reduced the crew to a minimum and severely
limited the number of vision devices. Thus, the tanks require the commander to operate as a somewhat vision-impaired gunner as well.


Tanks with Limited Vision add +1 to the score required to hit when shooting any weapon except an AA MG at
targets that are entirely behind a line drawn across the front of the tank’s turret before they rotate their turret to face the target.

Tanks with Limited Vision must rotate their turret to point straight ahead when they move.

Unreliable
Whether poorly designed, unsuitable for the conditions, or requiring more maintenance than current supply considerations will allow, these vehicles have a significant chance of breakdown when pushed too hard.

If an Unreliable vehicle attempts to move At the Double, roll a die. On a roll of 1 the vehicle becomes Bogged Down.

Wide Tracks
Some excellent tank designs have successfully utilised wider tracks, allowing them to cross almost any terrain.


If a vehicle with Wide Tracks becomes Bogged Down while attempting to cross Rough Terrain, roll again. On a roll of 4+ the vehicle immediately frees itself and continues moving.
