The PT-76 was a tier 1 Light Tank originating from the Soviet Union. It was sold by Marat Shishkin and led to the T-55 and FV107 Scimitar.

This vehicle was one of the three starting vehicles in Armored Warfare, along with the M41 and Type 62. It was by default unlocked and owned by new players, and could have been purchased for free from Shishkin if sold. It has now been replaced in the tech tree by the PT-85, although players that previously owned the PT-76 retain it in their loadout.

Player recommendations[edit | edit source]

As the most accurate of the starting vehicles, the PT-76 excels where the others cannot: in ranged warfare. Its superior accuracy can be used to pick off targets at the limits of its view range. While its poor gun depression makes this impossible over hills and crests, it can use its range to distance itself from incoming fire, lessening its effectiveness.

Pros and cons[edit | edit source]

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • High DPM at its tier
  • Low silhouette
  • Excellent accuracy

Cons[edit | edit source]

  • Very poor gun depression
  • Sluggish compared to the M41 and Type 62
  • No effective armor

Upgrade suggestions[edit | edit source]

Upgrading to the V-6A Diesel Engine will improve tactical mobility, allowing for easier breaking of contact and flank pushing. Upgrading to the Improved Fire Control system and following AP ammunition will also allow for greater effective damage output. The multiple charges of Upgraded Exhaust Smoke will allow for improved extraction from dangerous situations.

Retrofit suggestions[edit | edit source]

The innovative PT-76 uses minimal steel with excellent sloping along the hull and turret to keep its weight low enough for it to float while still maintaining resistance on the upper glacis to many autocannons and all-around defense against most small arms.

History[edit | edit source]

This Soviet-era light tank was the start of a new generation of vehicles combing fire-support and reconnaissance capabilities. Starting in 1951, approximately 5,000 units were built until production concluded in 1969. The PT-76 entered service in 1951 and remains a popular choice with governments all over the world, enough to create a market for unauthorized copies. With a long combat service record, this vehicle has seen action in Southeast and Western Asia, as well as Eastern Europe.
