In the history of World War II, there are tanks that were "unlucky". Some of them were ahead of their time, some were hopelessly behind the times. One of these combat vehicles was the Italian heavy tank "P 26/40". Promising development stalled for years due to technological problems, and as a result, this tank did not become massive and did not have an impact on the battlefields.
The "P 26/40" was one of the last riveted hull tanks in its class. In this, it differed from the similar geometry and basic parameters of the Soviet T-34 with its cast and welded parts and assemblies. The second feature was a semi-elliptical spring suspension with rollers assembled in carts. It seemed conditionally vulnerable, unlike more modern form factors. The third problem that was never solved was the engine.
Nevertheless, the "P 26/40" was a powerful offensive combat vehicle, which had good armament and driving performance. With a weight of 26 tons, its speed was to 40 km/h on paved roads, and it could autonomously overcome to 280 km. Armor with a thickness of 40-60 mm provided protection against bullets, fragments, mines, and tangential impacts of shells.
The main gun of the "P 26/40" was a 75 mm Ansaldo L/34 cannon and two 8 mm Breda machine guns.
The crew of "P 26/40" consisted of three people. The commander was in the turret, and served as a gunner.
Despite the low popularity of the "P 26/40" tank in real military history, it became very popular due to the military online RTS game “World of Tanks” by “Wargaming”. And the designers of the “Metal Time” company, expanding their tank collection, created a scale model of the "P 26/40" for self-assembly together with “Wargaming”.
The “WoT” logo flaunts on the base of the model and a bonus package from “Wargaming” is attached to each kit. It contains an activation code for the game, with which you can start the most popular online real-time strategy game, obtain the T2 light tank + Slot + 7 Days of “WoT” premium account + 500 gold. A great start for a beginner online tanker!
The "P 26/40" mini model features a recognizable design of the tank: the geometry of a rotating turret, a cannon that can change the angle of inclination, a chassis layout, hatches, armament, and radiators of the engine compartment. The surfaces are electrochemically etched with textures of rivets, seams, and images, giving the model a resemblance to the original combat vehicle. All parts of the model are made of stainless steel used in the food industry, the production of consumer goods, and toys. Assembly "P 26/40" excludes any harm to the owner. Accurate cutting allows you to assemble models without the use of additional tools, soldering, and gluing.
The assembled scale model of the "P 26/40" light tank can be used as a souvenir, interior decoration, or a valuable prize for “WoT” fans. It can also be used to create installations, models, or reconstructions of tank battles of WW II. It will take its rightful place at the booth with a collection of prefabricated models "Metal Time Workshop" and the game "World of tanks". But its main purpose is technical creativity, joint modeling, and the development of handicraft skills.
Assembling "Metal Time" models encourage owners to study the history of technology, and develop design skills. Each of our models is assigned a unique serial number and this makes them collectible and exchangeable. The "Metal Time" DIY kits Owners Club is a growing community of people who are passionate about constructing.
