Soviet T-28E Medium Tank
Model #83854
1:35th scale
The Soviet T-28 was one of the world's first medium tanks. The prototype was completed in 1931 and production began in late 1932. It was an infantry support tank intended to break through fortified defences. 
The T-28 was designed to complement the heavier T-35, with which it shared many components. The type would not have that much success in combat, but it played an important role as a development project for Soviet designers. A series of new ideas and solutions were tried out on the T-28 and were later incorporated in future models.
