From the publisher:
The Soviet T-35A is the only five-turreted tank in history to enter production. With a proud service history on Soviet parade grounds, the T-35A was forced to adapt to the modern battlefield when World War II broke out. The outclassed and outdated heavy tank tried to hold its own against the German invaders, but to no avail.

Although very little is known about these strange vehicles beyond their basic shape and photographs taken on parade grounds and battlefields, actual battlefield photographs have been cross-referenced with maps and documents to bring about a more comprehensive view of the T-35A — and it is a grim depiction of the fate of the obsolescent giants.


FSM says:
For any modeler who wants to add this Soviet behemoth to their collection, there are many revealing photos of the T-35A on parade and in action — often in distress, whether mired, captured, capsized, or blown to bits.
