The T-55 is a tier 2 Main Battle Tank originating from the Soviet Union, and is sold by Marat Shishkin. It can be unlocked from the PT-85 and leads to the T-62.

Features[edit | edit source]

  • Heavy armor: this vehicle's armor bounces more shots and takes more hits

Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

This tank is best played as a formidable hull down vehicle, but lacks the mobility to exploit breakthroughs. Within its tier, it is one of the least mobile of the MBTs, but makes up for this with strong turret armor and substantial frontal hull armor.

Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • High alpha
  • Excellent turret armor

Cons[edit | edit source]

  • Lowest upgraded acceleration and top speed of the T2 MBTs
  • Weak side hull armor
  • Poor hull and turret traverse

Upgrade Suggestions[edit | edit source]

The Improved Laser Rangefinder increases the accuracy of the gun, and leads to improved APDS and HEAT shells. Improved Ready Racks will allow a player to keep a larger volley of fire over the standard setup, allowing it to excel as a defensive lynchpin and armored spearhead.

Retrofit Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Advanced Muzzle Reference System
  • Augmented Optics
  • Improved Gun Breech
  • Improved Pioneer Tool Kit
  • Improved Spall Liner

Commander and Crew Skill Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Commander: Juan Carlos, to improve the aim speed and crew stats.
  • Driver: Spin to Win, Off-Road Driving
  • Gunner: Sharpshooter, Do the Twist
  • Loader: Rapid Fire, Explosive Shells/Preparation

History[edit | edit source]

The most produced tank in military history, the T-55 is a legendary main battle tank that has been involved in a majority of the world's armed conflicts during the late 20th century. It was produced when ongoing improvements to the T-54 were combined into one design, which became the Object 155 and entered production as the T-55, being accepted for service in 1958.
