Item DescriptionThe Army of the Soviet Union began use of the PL-43 armored car in 1942. It was based on a 2 axle 20 ton rail car, and it was part of the BP-43 armored train, The 2 axle cars were lighter and easier to use than the 4 axle cars in use earlier in the War. Its hull was composed of tempered armored sheets attached to the chassis. The front and side armor was 45 mm thick and 20 mm thick on the roof and running gear. A T-34 tank turret with 45-60 mm armor was mounted on the reinforced roof. More than one T-34 turret design was used but the 1941 turret with the F-34 76 mm gun was the most common. The rail car also had 3 DT (7.62 mm) machine guns, one in the turret and two on the hull in spherical mounts.
