Default [Vehicle] T-55A Main Battle Tank

So I'm working on this T-55A for some factions that need it (like the Syrian Faction that is currently stuck in development hell), I've only put like a handful of hours worth of work into it so far so it goes without saying that it's super early work in progress but here's what I've got.



It's about 7k tris without the cupola (yoinked from the T-62 model, they're the same irl anyways) and I'm aiming for around the ballpark of 15k once fully complete. I've done 3d for like over 2 years at this point but I'd say this is my first real piece for PR, aside from some very minor work I did for the Indonesia Faction Mod Team. I want to create more models for PR after this one and I've got a few ideas so I'm happy to hear feedback

(I am aware of some inaccuracies with the side skirts, I'm gonna fix that asap)

Nice to hear, hope for modeling without issues on this one.

I do not know. I am pretty sure there are other little differences between two turrets (except of course gun, which you already replaced if I am correct).

The turrets are completely different, I'm talking about the copula with the machine gun

T-62 copula


T-55 copula


The shape of the hatch may be very slightly different, so I may have to tweak that

Ok, I got you now. Model currently looks nice for unexperienced eye. Keep good work! Can not wait for this and Stryker MGS.

Update, I got most of the low poly detail (save for the wheels) nailed, there's still a lot of detail I plan to include on the normal map not yet included though




You can see it's up to 10k tris with the cupola included, this will definitely come in below 15k tris, probably something like 12k in its complete state

Nice work! T-54/55 has been sorely missing all these years it'll be great to finally get one in game.

You probably know this but I would say though, before you get too far, to keep an eye out for the endless asymmetry of tanks. Turrets especially are almost never a mirror image. This tank for example has the gun mounted to the right of the centre line of the turret, and the turret is mounted left of the centre line of the hull. Plus the turret hatches don't line up with each other either.

(these pics aren't from the t-55a but from the t-54, t-54b and t-55 respectively but you get the idea)

Make sure to post some wireframe images so our artists can give some technical feedback as well!

I got the gun offset but good catch on the hatches

These should do, keep in mind that I haven't started optimizing the wireframes for most parts yet as I'm still working on the base mesh
