Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

This time we will be introducing perhaps a slightly lesser known vehicle, the T-20 Komsomolets Armoured Tractor.

T-20 Komsomolets


The T-20 was developed in 1936, using a modified hull from the T-38 amphibious tank. It was intended to act as a tractor for smaller artillery pieces such as the 45mm anti-tank gun or the 120mm mortar. Up to 6 of the weapon's crew could be seated on the back, while the driver and commander were protected in the fully armoured front cabin.

Nearly 7000 T-20s were in the Red Army at the start of Operation Barbarossa, and they suffered high losses with just over 1600 remaining a year later. The Germans, Romanians and the Finns all captured and used the T-20 for themselves. The Finns used them until 1961. There were some modifications made, the Soviets armed about 100 with ZiS-2 anti-tank guns and used them in the defence of Moscow, and the Germans similarly used a few with Pak 35 anti-tank guns. Our T-20 was made by Kraetzer.


That's all for this week, but be sure to come back next time for another update. Until then, feel free to visit our IRC channel, our public forums, and/or our Twitter and Facebook pages to discuss this update and other news.
