Tank Commanders,

In this episode of Inside the Chieftain's Hatch, Nicholas Moran takes us inside the T-55A and tells us its story. Most of us have heard of the T-54 and T-55, which are Soviet tanks that have seen action in numerous conflicts throughout the world over the past 60 years.

What is the difference between this tank and the T-54? How did this tank deal with water fording? What's peculiar about the hatches in Soviet tanks? Watch this video to find out the answers to these questions.

Happy viewing!
