The last heavy tank built by the Soviet Union, the T-10 began development in 1948 as the IS-8, and after several modifications finally entered production as the IS-10 in 1952... a year before Stalin died. In the wake of the political turmoil, the tank was renamed T-10. The T-10 was originally armed with the 122mm cannon included in this print, but the later T-10A added a bore evacuator, and the T-10M had a longer barrel and a more modern 5-baffle muzzle break. This particular 1/285 scale model is the base variant.
With such severe angles all over the hull, the T-10 could deflect shots from almost any direction, and with added NBC protection, the tank was almost invincible. As a result of its effectiveness as a deep battle defense unit, the T-10 was not exported to satellite countries as its contemporaries were, such as the T-54/55 and T-62. Though heavy tanks had been rendered obsolete by the 1960s, the T-10 was such a well-built machine that it remained in service of the Russian Federation until 1993, 27 years after production had stopped.
Ordering the small variant will give you a single tank.
Ordering the medium variant will give you two tanks.
Ordering the large variant will give you five tanks.
