Lore

During the Cold War, the Soviet Union was unrivalled in tank numbers. They produced more than 55,000 T-55 tanks, and the T-64 was produced in an adequate number as well, around 13,000. In fact, so many were produced that when the USSR fell in 1991, the newly formed Russia Federation didn't know what purpose to attribute them. Consequently, they were put in reserve, to be used only when considered necessary. When the Russo-European War broke out, the Russian forces decided to secure their upper hand by deploying these old museum pieces, mainly as expendable assets to boost manpower in the field. They come refitted with many new innovations in armor, allowing it to be lighter, and capable of being paradropped wherever armor is needed. They are meant to be used as cannon fodder, and their main role is to protect and draw away fire from the more advanced Kodiak tanks, and to rapidly reinforce the front line wherever they're needed. They are armed with a D-81T 125mm smoothbore cannon, which is capable of firing anti-tank missiles from its barrel.
