Item DescriptionThe T-70 as a tank was already obsolete by the time production started in 1942, but was a much needed "stop gap" until Russian production facilities could recover from the initial German advance.
The T-70 is a small tank with a crew of only two, and weighing in at just under 10 tons. It was armed with a 45mm main gun, and a 7.62mm co-axial MG. Production ceased in September (some sources state October) 1943, when over 8.200 had been build.
Using captured or foreign produced equipment was a standard practise of the German Army since before the war, and the T-70 was no exception. The German designation for the T-70M was "Pz. Kpfw. T-70 743(r)" and was used mainly for reconnaissance and 'Internal Police Duties'. Some T-70's had their turrets removed, and were used to tow Artillery.
