    FH2 News Update: Twin Engines

    Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.
    We'd like to take this opportunity to wish everyone of our loyal fans a happy new year. To start off 2013, we have a render of perhaps a lesser known Soviet tank: the T-70 light tank.


    Even as early as 1942 the Soviets considered light tanks to be obsolete, especially compared to the T-34. However, light tanks had the advantage that they could be constructed in small factories that were unable to manage with the larger medium and heavy tanks. In 1942 the T-70 was introduced to replace both the obsolete T-60 reconnaissance tank and the complicated and expensive T-50 light infantry tank.

    The first T-70s to roll off the production line were fitted with two engines, each of which powered one track. This was not an ideal setup, and the tank was soon modified to the T-70M with both engines mounted on the right and working together. The turret was also simplified and the mounting moved to the left hand side.
    One big drawback of its design was its cramped turret, which was only big enough for one crew member. A version with a bigger turret was produced as the T-80 starting in 1943, but by that time there was enough lend-lease matériel flowing into the Red Army that the light tank was declared obsolete and all production stopped. 8226 T-70s were constructed in total, and ours was made by Toddel.

    I saw the title twin engines and was expecting a plane. The title was a let down.

    I thought it might be a stupid plane as well. The title was a pleasant surprise.
