A T55, from 1914? And color photos? Some nice photos (or witchcraft) anyways.

Am I the only the one that finds it funny that is has a red star and hammer and sickle and its not even a Russian produced T-55?

I don't understand the 1914 reference as to the star it is a privately owned T-55 so I am sure the markings are not accurate.

Cheers Rob.

Thanks for sharing Rob...Don't mind the haters, you took great pics (and a helluva lot) I will surely use them as a walk around for details. And I'll be sure to order some cheiftain tracks to have some brilliant comments on my thread too

Maybe I'll paint a banana on it.

I notice how perfectly a fit goes for the Chieftain track with what seems no modification whatsoever to the T55 drive sprocket! If thats the case, just think of the possibility battlefield repairs to a blown track! That tells me the T55 track would/could be considered a spare for the Chieftain!
