History

The T-54 and T-55 tanks are a series of main battle tanks (according to some sources), although not recognized as an MBT by Soviet and Russian sources, instead classifying them as medium tanks (the very concept of "main battle tanks" was applied only to tanks beginning with T-64A, armed with 125 mm tank gun), that were designed in the Soviet Union. The first T-54 prototype appeared in March 1945, just as the Second World War ended. The T-54 entered full production in 1947 and became the main tank for armoured units of the Soviet Army, armies of the Warsaw Pact countries, and others. The T-54 and T-55 were involved in many of the world's armed conflicts during the late 20th and early 21st centuries. T-54 tanks served in lots of countries. They served in the 1956 invasion of Hungary, Vietnam War, and in Angola.

In Game

The T-54 is the starter tank for players in Russia and former states of the Soviet Union. It is fast, agile, but suffers from a slow turret rotation speed and abysmal reverse speed. It is most often used in rooms where it is top tier, and usually comes out on top. This tank is one of the most seen vehicles in lower levels of the game. The tank's speed is high, just as the maneuverability. The damage is good for its level, so it takes out enemies fairly quickly with usually just a few shots. In order to take one out, it is best to flank and get behind the T-54, as it can't reverse to counter the attack and can't turn its turret very fast. The tank is seen as expendable by players but if used correctly the T-54 can overwhelm the enemy team.
