On 9.2.1943, two engineers - F.F.Gorodkov and A.I.Starodubcev - sent a letter to J.V.Stalin directly, describing a new very fast armored vehicle. Both engineers worked at the Factory No.200 in Chelyabinsk, which produced the hulls for KV series, IS series and other vehicles produced in the city industrial complex, aptly nicknamed "Tankograd" ("tank city"). Therefore, it's not surprising that it was the KV design that made the basis for the new tank proposal. As with many other amateurish Russian war projects, this design was also a product of patriotic zeal rather than rational engineering, the project was however made in great detail. The authors even calculated the combat weight of the vehicle with methods approved for other vehicles produced in Chelyabinsk. The vehicle was not supposed to be THAT light (25 tons, as the name suggests), but it did fit in the army requirements for a light tank, brought by the army in mid 1943. It was projected with a 47mm gun, but given the size of the turret, a 76mm ZIS-5 and other guns would fit in quite fine. Size-wise, it did fit also, the T-50 was only 10cm shorter than the MT-25. Note how the suspension was projected with interwoven wheels (like the late German vehicles had). It's unlikely the two engineers had access to a Tiger at that point, so it's assumed they were influenced by the German halftracks. The projected speed was to be 40-45 km/h on average, but the maximum speed would be 100 km/h.
Well, so much for Yuri Pasholok's article. The reason the T-50-2 is going to be replaced is that the T-50-2 (and the T-50 when it comes to that) doesn't behave as the real life original tank did. From the other threads on the RU forum, it's possible it will have various 76mm guns, including possibly the S-31. The engine mentioned for it is the KV V-2K (600hp), which is not bad for 25 tons. The armor was supposed to be the same as the T-50 (as far as I can tell at least).


- it's not yet decided, what exactly will happen to crew, camo and modules of the T-50-2, when it is removed from the game and replaced by MT-25

- 0.8.6 will bring the new Soviet medium branch and possibly the replacement of T-50-2 with MT-25

-it's possible that when the MT-25 replaces the T-50-2, owners will get a new crewmember

Because when the physics update come out, the width of the tank is too short thus when it does turns or even tight turns, it simply rolls on it's side and DOES A BARREL ROLL!

Yeah. Sad isn't it? I don't mind keeping it as a premium tank just for fun. Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!

I don't know. But because the fun factor is going to be super ultra omega awesome, I'm going to keep it if it ever stays. No, I made it up. I don't know if it will though but it will be definitely nice.

Right. Nvm.

*imagines a mass of players buying T-50-2*

Hmm... not good. Too many barrel rolls.

Barrel rolls = New ammo evasion tactic? :Smile_veryhappy:

Will we get a roll bar equipment add on to ensure a return to your tracks?

Couldn't they have just nerfed the turning and gave it a set of training wheels? lol

>Average speed 40-45KM/H
>Top Speed 100KM/H
So basically, you are BUFFING an already amazing scout tank? Rather than nerfing it to the same level as others. ...Just no. I am guessing it will do like 60KM/H and be slightly larger than the T-50-2

Kind of funny, the T-50 out turns the T-50-2. At least mine does.

No tracks.
But it has overlapping rubber tired road wheels instead.

I guess WG is eating their words that only tracked vehicles would be in the game...

Katyusha anyone?
