Medium Tank: A-44

A-44

The project was developed at Factory No. 183 by engineer I.S. Ber in April 1941. The vehicle was to be manufactured in three different versions with different armor, armament, combat weight, and speed. The prototype was scheduled to be built by the beginning of 1942. However, the project was discontinued due to the outbreak of the Soviet–German war.
