There is an art to tank design, Russia failed during WWII.

Don't underestimate the power of the Russian design bureaus. You have to remember they were still fresh out of a devastating Socialist revolution and were under command of one of the biggest dorks this side of history and where in the process of being back-stabbed by a rather powerful ally. For what they had and what they where tasked with, they did exceedingly well.

Yes but they had 4 more to take their place for every one they lost.. More then the Italians can say. Also the Russians decided to put wings on tanks and call them Il-2s :)

That isn't really true, they had a large production but they were losing them pretty much as fast as they could build them. At the turning point was when this would start to take effective, but by then they had designed some more potent tanks anyway.

Well us Brits got some balsawood, gave it many loadouts to do anything ever and it outran everything but end-war jets.

Description

The KhTZ-16 (Russian: ХТЗ-16) (after the Kharkiv Tractor Factory; Ukrainian: Kharkivskiy Traktorniy Zavod) was a Soviet improvised armoured vehicle of the Second World War, built on the chassis of an STZ-3 tractor. The vehicles were built in Kharkiv until the factory was evacuated to the east, at which time production moved to Stalingrad. No less than 809 vehicles were planned, but no more than about 60 were actually built. Some vehicles were used in the fighting around Kharkiv in October 1941, but were quickly lost.

The vehicle was operated by a crew of two, and armed with a 45mm anti-tank gun, 37mm anti-aircraft gun and a 7.62mm DT or Degtyarev light machine gun mounted in a fixed superstructure.
