Tanker's Tuesday:T35

The T-35 was a Soviet multi-turreted heavy tank of the
interwar period and early Second World War that saw
limited production and service with the Red Army. It
was the only five-turreted heavy tank in the world to
reach production but proved to be slow and mechanically
unreliable. Most of the T-35 tanks still operational at the
time of Operation Barbarossa were lost due to mechanical
failure rather than enemy action.

Outwardly it was large but internally the spaces were cramped
with the fighting compartments separated from each other. Some
of the turrets obscured the entrance hatches.
