TG-66 Heavy Tank Edit

The TG-66 is a heavy tank designed to break through defensive lines with it's armor. The tank was aimed to act like a KV-1 tank.

Development Edit

The TG-66 is originally made with intentions to replace the ever-outdated TG-51. Three concepts within J.A. industries were submitted for the replacement. The first concept was the TG-66 itself, the original model featured a 100MM short cannon along with a 12.7MM AA machine gun and a 7.62 Coaxial machine gun. The armour values itself were 290/150/100 for the hull and 90/90/90 for the turret. The designation was TG-66p. However, this raised many issues, the two obvious ones was weight and mobility issues. Also the tank had only 7 rounds to fire due the hull restrictions. The original model was rebuild to allow more rounds and a better mobility while keeping it's armor, high in the frontal part. The 100MM cannon was replaced with a 75MM short cannon and the 12.7MM top AA MG was removed. The armor values were reduced heavily. The result was a decrease in weight and an increase in mobility. The rounds were increased to 33 AP-T shots.

Characteristics Edit

The TG-66 has a green painting scheme along with a 75mm short cannon and a turret that resembles somewhat to the KV-1. Furthermore the back of the hull is slightly bigger then the rest of the hull.

Advantages Edit

The TG-66 has a strong frontal armor which enables the tank to take multiple hits from 100MM and below caliber guns. It's mobility is fair enough on-road but has sometimes issues off-road. Ammo modules are protected by a frontal plate while the pod itself is covered both front and sides to reduce chances of a fatal shot killing the driver.

Disadvantages Edit

Having fragile sides and back, the TG-66 excels bad in urban enviroments and its 75mm short cannon has a decreased effectiveness on tanks with the same weight classes or above. The mobility also is restricted due the gearbox replaced from a 6-speed type to a CVT.

Variants Edit

The TG-66 wasn't accepted for replacement by the TG-51 and therefor had only two upgrade packages. (Excluding prototype)

  • TG-66p - Original tank concept, featured 100MM cannon, over 300mm frontal armour and a 22.0L V10 MF engine.
  • TG-66 - Downgraded version of the TG-66p, having a 75MM short cannon, and decreased armor. Retains original armor.
  • TG-66A - 75MM Short cannon replaced by a 75MM Autoloader cannon. 7.62 Coaxial MG removed.
  • TG-66E - Same armament and engine, recieved spaced armor to the hull sides and turret sides. Additional plating to the frontal part. Proposed to combat the issue in urban enviroments.
