The T-55 medium tank was one the most widespread tanks in the world. It had about 20 modifications and was produced and adopted in many countries. The tank took part almost in every military conflict after WWII.
Radiation protection inside and outside of the vehicle as well as other alterations were added to the basic model. The tank was armed with a 100mm stabilized tank gun, a 7.62mm PKT gun and a 12,7-mm DShK-M anti-aircraft gun. Vertical angles of fire of the main gun ranged from 5 to 80 degrees and for the antiaircraft MG from 4.5 to 82 degrees. The ammunition supply consist of 43 rounds and more than 3000 cartridges. Firing rate was up to 7 shots per minute. Maximum sighting range is 17.5 km.
The tank was powered by the V-55V 12-cylinder four-stroke diesel engine. The engine power was 580 hp. The tank is provided with water fording equipment. It had caterpillar track assembly with rear driving wheels. The caterpillars are metallic with rubber-metallic hinges; the total number of tracks is 91. The tank had an independent torsion-bar suspension. The four-member crewcomprised the CO, the gunlayer, the loader and the driver.
The T-55 tank has been in service with many armed forces for over 30 years which proves its successful design and multipurposeness.
