45 mm M1932 main gun
10–60 mm armour plating
Small, fast and durable, the T-70 is a good clean-up vehicle. Its main weakness is its 45 mm cannon, which is ineffective against heavily armored vehicles. Able to be produced quickly and in large numbers, the T-70 proves most effective in large groups.
If the Sherman was the K car of World War II tanks, the T-70 was the Mini-Cooper: fast but undergunned, it still served a role in the Soviet war effort because it was easy to produce. The success of the T-34, and the way that tank warfare evolved to encompass many more tank-on-tank battles, spelled the demise of this little spitfire.
- Pros: Cheap, cheap, cheap.
- Cons: You get what you pay for: the T-70 has the lowest hit points of any Tech Level 1 Tank.
- Bottom Line: You might need to build some, but don't get carried away and build too many just because you haven't hit Tech Level 2 yet.
