Miniart 1:35 - T-60 Early Series with Interior - Plastic Model Kit #35215

The T-60 was a Soviet light tank of WWII aimed to replace the T-38 amphibious tank, outdated by that time. The prototype for the T-60, the T-30B, was built at Moscow Factory No. 37. It had the T-40's chassis and was equipped with heavier armour, yet it was easier to construct overall. The T-30B was commissioned to production under the name T-60 in 1941 and was produced until 1942. During the year of production over six thousand T-60 tanks were issued.

Initially the T-60 was armed with a 20mm TNSh cannon (a tank version of the ShVAK aircraft auto-cannon) which could pierce 15mm armour at the distance of 500m. That range was insufficient against contemporary German tanks so the 37mm ZIS-19 cannon was offered as a replacement. However, it turned out to be impossible to re-arm the tank as 37mm ammunition was scarce in the USSR at that time.   

During the war, the Germans managed to capture several T-60 tanks and used them under the name Panzerkampfwagen T-60 743(r).

The kit contains 482 parts for the assembly of a Soviet T-60 light tank.
