Description: T-54 was developed beginning in 1946 as a replacement for Soviet T-34 Main Battle Tank (MBT). It entered service three years later equipped with a 100mm rifled gun as primary armament. Since then, approximately 50,000 T-54/T-55 were produced in Russia and all over the world under license. It was produced in large numbers for the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) under Type 59 designation. T-55 is an improved version with a fully tracked chassis. T-54/T-55 were the backbone of the Soviet Army during three decades.
T-54/T-55 main battle tanks saw combat in many conflicts fighting against western MBTs. Overall, T-54/55 performance was deemed below to those of M47, M48 and Centurion. Currently, T-54/55s are obsolete but large numbers of this tank are still in service in many third world countries.
