During the Cold War the former Soviet Union surprised the western powers in NATO many times by unveiling new tanks, artillery and missiles during the Red Square Parades.
The T-64 was one such vehicle and really shook the western forces. Production began in 1963 and eventually some 13,000 in a number of types were built. Versions included specialist mine clearing types and weaponry included missiles such as the ‘Kobra’. It was used by all the main states within the Warsaw Pact and even in 2014 versions were in use with the Ukrainian Army. But despite its high numbers of production it actually saw limited combat service. This work looks at the origins, production and service history of the T-64. A good reference work for modellers and war gamers and historians of armoured warfare will also find it interesting.
