It's funny because in-game this thing's pretty good, but realistically speaking it's a design disaster.
Exactly what makes it so cool-looking (the needlessly exposed treads and ammo feed) makes for easy "shoot here to disable" weakpoints. Not that RA3 had any hint of realism whatsoever though...

And now that I look at it, if these are 88mm shells, that's one small hatch xP

Description

The Hammer is unmistakably Soviet. It has a blocky, angular chassis with exposed treads, complimented by a bulky cockpit. The tank has an integral steel-cavity armour plating, protecting the crew and its most delicate mechanisms, including the TS-1 leech beam.
Each Hammer comes standard with an 85mm autoloading cannon with air cooled ammunition storage, with an excellent rate of fire and reduced chance of ammunition accidents. In order to stabilize the offset cannon, Soviet scientists used technology from Sickles and terror drones that keeps them upright and operational. The cannon's position seems odd, but only until one considers the functionality of the leech beam.

The leech beam, apart from being able to draw metal from enemy vehicles and melding it into its own armour (effectively "healing" itself), can also scavenge weapons from destroyed enemy vehicles, by increasing the amplitude at the moment of the target's destruction. The weapon is then attached to a universal One-Size-Fits-All weapon mount on the left side of the turret.
