TACAM T-60 (RO100)

TACAM T-60 (RO100)
includes one TACAM T-60 Tank Destroyer with crew.

The TACAM T-60 is an ingenious combination of two bits of captured Soviet equipment, the T-60 light tank and the 76.2mm obr 1936 field gun (FK36(r) as used by the Germans).

Hull-mounted Guns
Some tanks mount weapons in the front of the hull instead of in a turret to save weight or to make them easier to produce.


A hull-mounted weapon mounted in the front of a vehicle has a 180-degree Field of Fire covering everything in front of a line drawn across the front of the vehicle. If the weapon is mounted at the rear of the vehicle, the Field of Fire covers everything to the rear of a line drawn across the rear of the vehicle.

34 vehicles were completed by the end of 1943 and assigned to the training unit of the 1st Armoured Division where they were split into the 61st and 62nd TACAM companies. They saw service in Transnistria and Basarabia in February to August 1944.

Overloaded
Super-heavy tanks and heavily-laden assault guns often overload their engines and suspensions, making them very poor at crossing obstacles.


When required to take a Bogging Check to cross Difficult Going, an Overloaded vehicle becomes Bogged Down on
a roll of 1 or 2, rather than the usual 1.

An Overloaded vehicle must re-roll successful Skill Tests to cross Very Difficult Going.

One company of TACAM T-60 tank-hunters continued fighting in Transylvania after the Romanians had joined
the Allies. The Romanians also used their old R-2 tanks combined with the Soviet 76.2mm ZIS-3 gun to create the TACAM R-2. This also saw action against the Germans and Hungarians.

Mid-war Monsters
In our research we have uncovered lots of really interesting experimental tanks. Some were just designs that were never completed. Others were completed as prototypes, and some even saw small-scale field testing!

These tanks were weird and wonderful, ranging from a 100-ton monster and a First World War relic, to a tank with two side-by-side main guns, an armoured car weighing more than a tank, and a machine-gun armed light tank with the armour of a heavy tank!
