Warlord Games speeds to the front with the release of their new Soviet BT-7 fast tank.
From the release:
The latest Bolt Action vehicle to leave the massed tank factories of Tankograd, this stunning BT-7 fast tank will give your Soviet army one of it’s most numerous armoured fighting vehicles of the war with 7,000-8,0000 being produced!
The BT-7 was the last of the BT series of Soviet cavalry tanks that were produced in large numbers between 1935 and 1940 (BT relating to Bystrokhodny tank – fast/high speed tank). They were lightly armoured, but reasonably well-armed for their time, and had much better mobility than other contemporary tank designs, based as they were on the American-designed Christie suspension and thus achieved impressive speeds of up to 53mph.
