      If the operators get into an argument they can shoot at each other.

      Soviet tank T-35 had FIVE turrets, this achievement matched by no other country.

        Over complexity led to unreliability. Unresolvable fire control issues rendered the extra armament ineffective.

        The multi-turret machines were too heavy for cross country use against lighter more maneuverable enemies.

        Most multiple turret tanks were abandoned after the nations using them gained combat experience. In the beginning of WWII, AKA, The Great Patriotic War; many nations used multiple turret tanks. The best all around tank in WWII was the T-34, it was developed from ideas learned by the Russians from having to fight the Germans.

        Simple, strong, numerous, capable, and fast, that is what is needed in tank warfare.

    I wish they would replace the red star on the Spasskaya Tower to the original double-headed eagle. Will that ever be done?

    The more turrents the more spectacular the explosion when an American tank destroys you.

    Some of the pictures looks like they are from video footage I would see on tv in the 70s and 80s.Now they don’t look intimidating.

    Good pics. Just wonder how many of the soldiers in the 1930s pictures ended up in the gulag.

    I love these old pictures!

    Picture 3 is, in fact, a still from the shooting of Monty Python´s Flying Circus, episode “Cycling Tour”. USSR used the picture extensively during 80s for propaganda purposes, but KGB forgot to blur Mr. Cleese´s face, who is seen here standing at the very left. The remaining “soldiers” are extras hired in the Third World (Yorkshire).
