Team Yankee: T-64 Tankovy Company (x5) (Plastic) - TSBX13
T-64 Tankovy Company (Plastic) (TSBX13)
Contains five plastic T-64 Tanks, one plastic tank commander sprue, one decal sheet and three unit cards.
The T-64 tank was a second generation tank design that first entered service in 1967 to replace the older first generation tanks. It features many innovative design features.
The T-64 has improved armour protection compared to previous Soviet tanks, introducing ceramic composite armour. The T-64 is also fitted with NBC (Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical) protection and automatic fire suppression systems. It was also the first Soviet tank to be fitted with an autoloader, which allowed for the reduction of the turret size by removing the need for a loader crewman.
The T-64 is armed with the excellent smooth bore 125mm 2A46 gun, which fires high-explosive, high-explosive fragmentation, and armour-piercing fin-stabilised discarding-sabot rounds. By the 1980s, the Soviet forces in East Germany had replaced most of their tanks with the T-64 tank. The T-64 can fire Kobra (NATO designation AT-8 Songster) anti-tank guided missiles in the same manner as ordinary rounds. The missiles have a maximum range of 4000 metres and a hit probability of about 80%. The fully stabilised gun and sight system allowed the missiles to be fired on the move, unlike many other guided missiles. Not all T-64 tanks are armed with the Kobra missile, and some tanks were manufactured without the missile guidance system.
