Perhaps there is a universal, absolute truth. Perhaps it justifies every question. But that's beyond the reach of these small hands. - Yang Wen-li

Cool though.

Pile of complete ****, and people rip into the French for having poor mechanical quality. They lost more of these to breaking down than actual combat.

Oooh about time you added more of these. And yeah I don't see this thing as being very effective.

It was a prime example of Russian engineering.

There is engineering and being completely and ******* useless. The single advantage of this was advancing to the T-28 from it, which was kind of good design wise.

The T-35 was bad though. Massive, slow, unarmoured and broke down all the time, they lost most of them to breakdowns. How this reached production eludes me, the single advantage of this ever being built is that a lot was used in the T28 medium.

Which is kind of like the step-father of modern tanks.

Description

The T-35 was a Soviet multi-turreted heavy tank of the interwar period and early Second World War that saw limited production and service with the Red Army. It was the only five-turreted heavy tank in the world to reach production but proved to be slow and mechanically unreliable. Most of the T-35 tanks still operational at the time of Operation Barbarossa were lost due to mechanical failure rather than enemy action.

Outwardly it was large but internally the spaces were cramped with the fighting compartments separated from each other. Some of the turrets obscured the entrance hatches.
