T-43 Hero Tank Company (SBX72)

T-43 Hero Tank Company (SBX72)
includes two T-43 (76mm)Tanks and three Unit Cards.

To combat the new German anti-tank weapons, the T-43 medium tank has the armour of a heavy tank, while retaining the speed of the original. The first two prototypes were finally completed in March 1943 and went through trials in August. As a result, the T-43 was recommended for production to replace the T-34. They could have been in combat in significant numbers by the end of the year. However, the appearance of large numbers of German heavy Tiger, Panther and Ferdinand tanks at Kursk highlighted that a bigger gun was more important than heavier armour. As the T-43 was already at its weight limit, the T-43 turret, re-armed with a long 85mm gun, was fitted to the T-34, while the T-43 was redeveloped into the T-44.

Eastern Front: Mid-war Forces
Despite being thrown back from the gates of Moscow in the winter offensive, the Germans were back on the attack in the summer of 1942 with their Hungarian and Romanian allies, advancing deep into Russia and setting up the epic confrontation at Stalingrad. Meanwhile up north, the Finnish army heroically held off repeated Soviet attacks into their territories. Then, as winter hit, the Soviets counterattacked, encircling whole armies in the face of determined resistance. In the summer of 1943, the Germans struck back as massed tank formations clashed, intent on destroying the Red Army at Kursk.
