T 55A

Tank review of the T-55A the T9 German medium tank delivered to the NVA by the Soviets in the 1960’s!

An upgraded version of the T-55 tank. The T 55A had a higher level of nuclear protection and no bow machinegun. From 1962 through 1970, about 1,800 of the T-55 and T 55A tanks were supplied to East Germany by the U.S.S.R.

The T-55A is available as a reward for completing the third set of Personal Missions.

Pros and Cons

Pros:

  • Similar, yet superior gun to the T-54 in many soft stats
  • Superior terrain resistance to T-54 makes acceleration on-par and traverse even better
  • Superior view range to T-54
  • Retains excellent turret armor of T-54
  • Compatible with german medium tank crews

Cons:

  • Weaker hull armor than T-54, similar to WZ-120
  • Slower uphill speed than T-54 due to lower pw/wt ratio and lower top speed
  • Bad gun depression and elevation, penetration with AP is rather low
  • Prone to driver death and ammo rack damage
