Historia del prototipo
The medium tank “T-44” could have become the best tank of World War II, but it never fired a shot on the battlefield. This combat vehicle was created in 1943 but never came into the front lines.
In the last years of the war, the Soviet command realized that despite their quantity and decent mobility and reliability, the “T-34” tanks, even with the 85mm gun modification, were inferior to the best German armored vehicles - the “Tiger II” and “Panther” tanks. In head-to-head battles, the Soviet tanks had no chance due to their weak armor protection. Therefore, it was decided to create a tank with similar mobility and long-range capabilities as the “T-34”, but with significantly reinforced frontal armor. Thus, the “T-44” was born.
It underwent significant modifications. The decision was made to abandon the Christie suspension, and increase the power of the gun while maintaining the advantages of a medium "cruiser" tank. The result was a powerful, fast, and well-protected combat vehicle capable of combining the armor protection of a heavy tank with the mobility of a medium one. Modifications were released with 100 mm and even 122 mm caliber guns, but due to the vehicle's weight increase, they had to be abandoned in favor of the 85 mm gun created based on the rapid-fire D5-T gun.
Despite its worthy characteristics, the “T-44” was not put into mass production until the end of World War II, so as not to disrupt the production cycle of the “T-34-85”, which had similar parameters. However, after the war, the tank was produced in large batches and remained in service with the Soviet army until the 1970s.
A mini-model kit for self-assembly of the “T-44” of the “Metal Time” is a great gift for all military equipment enthusiasts, history of engineering thought, and technical modeling fans. This small set can be the beginning of a hobby of assembling large-scale models. It will provide you and your family and friends with several hours of joint creativity and positive communication.
The "T-44" model features the recognizable design of the legendary medium tank: a unique profile, turret, chassis, hatches, radiator grilles, and weaponry. Textures and images are applied to the surfaces using electrochemical etching, giving the model a resemblance to the original combat vehicle. All model parts are made of stainless steel, used in the food industry, and consumer goods and toy production. Assembly of the "T-44" excludes any harm to the owner. Accurate cutting allows for model assembly without additional tools, soldering, or gluing.
The assembled scale model of the "T-44" can be used as a souvenir, interior decoration, and valuable prize for military game enthusiasts. It can also be used to create installations, layouts, or reconstructions of tank battles during World War II. It will take a worthy place on the stand with the collection of "Metal Time workshop" models. But its primary purpose is technical creativity, joint modeling, and development of manual skills.
Assembling "Metal Time" models encourages owners to study the history of technology and develop construction skills. Each of our models is assigned a unique serial number, making them objects of collection and exchange. The "Metal Time" constructors' club is a growing community of people passionate about construction.
The "Metal Time" loyalty program regularly offers pleasant surprises to the owners of our DIY kits.
