Attention! This news was published on the old version of the website. There may be some problems with news display in specific browser versions.
The SMK (named after Sergei Mironovich Kirov) was a prototype tank made to answer requirements for a successor for the T-35. The design team in Kirovski Works under Kotin came up with a design for heavy multi-turreted tank. It was armed with a 76.2mm cannon mounted in the rear turret and a 45mm one in the frontal turret. The armour was designed to be able to withstand direct hits from 45mm shells. The SMK Design together with T-100 and KV-1 was battle tested in the war with Finland. It is worth mentioning that the KV-1 design was derived from the SMK and it had many design features taken from it. In War Thunder, the SMK will be available as a Soviet premium tank purchaseable through Golden Eagles.   Icons_4_GameMods_000001 Icons_4_GameMods_000005 Icons_4_GameMods_000010 Icons_4_GameMods_000011
