This is the HobbyBoss 83851 kit in 1/35 scale, of the ‘Russian T-28 Medium Tank – Early version’.
It was an infantry-support tank intended to break through fortified defenses. The T-28 was designed to complement the heavier T-35, with which it shared many components. The type would not have that much success in combat, but it played an important role as a development project for the Soviet designers.
A series of new ideas and solutions were tried out on the T-28 and were later incorporated in future models.
