(2003) (in Russian). [7] In the summer of 1932 the new project was considered by the military and, like its predecessor, met with little success. The design was passed over in favour of the T-35 project which was already at the prototype stage. The T42 has its statistics and armour profile compared against the M26 Pershing, TL-1 LPC and the T26E5 Patriot. [2][7], It was assumed that the tank would have different armor levels on each facing, with a maximum thickness of the frontal parts of the hull and turrets of 70 mm. The second tier contained the main turret, which was adapted for the installation of the M1910/30. tanks.gg is a player created website for World of Tanks. Modification based on the T30, equipped with 120mm modified anti-aircraft guns. The T30 was designed alongside the T29. The development of this tank began in 1948. [2][5][7], The control compartment was at the front. Some of the steel parts were replaced with aluminum making the T42 lighter by 500 pounds (227 kg). The design was passed over in … These would become the 76mm Gun Tank M41 Walker Bulldog and the 120mm Gun Tank M103 respectively. In the end, many were highly impractical (and expensive) ventures with little tactical value - serving more as propaganda measures than anything else. Cold War allies, both SEATO and NATOcountries, and was the only Patton series tank that never saw combat while in US service. The design was passed over in … 232 under the direction of a German engineer-designer Edward Grotte. ; Volkovskij, N.L. To ensure the tank met the speed required by the Red Army UMM, the T-42 needed about 2,000 horsepower. I have included an extensive but by no means exhaustive list of the German vehicles that have not been added yet to the tree, its more one for collectors as these would make a fine addition to any garage. The M4… The speed and maneuverability of the tank were questioned and high price noted. The 1st and 17th road wheels had individual suspension, the three middle rollers connected to the common carriage, and the remaining pairs were in 6 bogies. The T-42 befell the same fate handed to many super-heavy tank projects of the interwar and World War 2 period. 232 under the direction of a German engineer-designer Edward Grote.Development did not advance past the stage of construction drawings and scale models. This requirements study also recommended the adoption of new light, medium and heavy tanks which would eventually receive the designations T41, T42, and T43 respectively, while dropping the super-heavy tank and laying emphasis on developing components to be used specifically for tanks. Being a talented engineer, Grotte had impressive experience in designing tanks and at the beginning of the 1930s the Soviet Union was one of the few countries that was able to finance the design and construction of these machines. The 90mm gun tank T42 was a medium tank powered by the AOS-895-3, a 6-cylinder, Air cooled, Opposed cylinder, Supercharged engine displacing 895.9 cubic inches. They were capabl… 232 under the direction of a German engineer-designer Edward Grotte.Development did not advance past the stage of construction drawings and scale models. One of the tanks to spring from the design program was the Medium Tank T42. Thus, the tank was inferior to the T-35, which was eventually selected by the USSR for adoption. The T32 Heavy Tank was a heavy tank project started by the United States Army to create an appropriate successor to the M4A3E2 Sherman Jumbo. To ensure an acceptable view from the driver's seat, the driver's compartment was placed along the axis of the tank, and its position was pushed forward and equipped with an armored superstructure. With the improved performance it was able to pass the original specifications but the Army Field Forces refused its adoption as still underpowered development shifted to the M47 and T48 (later M48) program. Player Stats. After six prototypes were built, all work on the project was discontinued. The solution was to modify the T-43 into a new vehicle called the M103, the first operational American heavy tank since the Mark VIII. Most Red Army armor at the time consisted of relatively modern light infantry support tanks like the T-18 (MS-1), and the role of medium and heavy tanks was fulfilled mainly by British tanks that were captured in the Russian Civil War. ELC EVEN 90 French Premium Light Tank World of Tanks Sir Havoc. Due to a bug,however the MG fires very slowly, to be honest it had the lowest rate of fire for an anti-aircr… To facilitate the management of the tank, as in the case of TG, Grotte decided to apply an electric transmission and servo control that, although increasing the ergonomics of the tank, further complicated the suspension and raised its cost. [1][2][3][4][5] Grotte's first job was "a powerful medium tank", designated "TG", which had an overall level of engineering ahead of its time. The vehicle, along with the T2-B repulsor tank, was one of many new designs acquired by the Alliance during a raid on an Aridus manufacturing plant, and was among the heaviest armored units used by the Rebels during the course of the Galactic Civil War. Don’t be mistaking it for the M41 Bulldog, as this was a completely different project, but they do look similar. [2] Detailed design of the tank weapons was not in the scope of the project, and the documentation only showed how the weapons would be laid out.[7].

Finally, there was a rear turret equipped with twin DT machine guns to perform anti-air duties. [2][7] This development did not receive special support from UMM RKKA, resulting in Grotte reworking it into a new project tank called the T-42 (or TG-V). The first layer was formed by four towers placed around the main turret. The US Ordnance board managed the production of four prototypes, the main goal being to have the new tank share many common parts with the M26 Pershing. iFacePalm tank reviews the American tier 8 premium T42 medium tank during September of 2020 where it was introduced to World of Tanks for the very first time.

All about the tank: hidden stats, armor, 3D model The sheer size and weight of such a tank made it a perfect target, despite anti-air measures, and the movement characteristics of the tank were also in doubt. As a result, the UMM RKKA Commission decided that the T-42 was not fully consistent with the presented design goals and decided to end work on the project, focusing instead on the T-35. It was designed as a successor to the M4A3E2 "Jumbo", and in practice was a heavily armored tank developed on the basis of the M26 Heavy Tank. [2][6], However, this did not discourage Grotte, and the OKB started designing a heavy tank. [7], Like most super-heavy tanks developed in the 1920s-1930s around the world, the T-42 had almost no practical utility. The T32 had a 770 hp Ford GAC engine that was capable of propelling it at speeds of up to 36 km/h. It is one of the first American tanks to be released with the American ground tree in Update 1.45 "Steel Generals". [2][5], The layout of the T-42 was similar to the T-35 (a prototype of which (the T-35-1) was based on the work of the Kharkiv Locomotive Factory) with five turrets: one turret with a 107 mm M1910/30 field gun, two BT-2 tank turrets with 45 mm M1932/38 (20K) tank guns, and two turrets with 7.62 mm DTM machine guns.
