With over 8,000 tanks built during the war, the T-70 was the mainstay of Soviet light tank units. Straight of the box it combines some fairly average stats, but with a little work the T-70 can shine in any situation with specific upgrades available for the gun and engine.
The T-70 adds another Light Tank to the mix. Built in large numbers by the Soviet army it is a blank canvas ready for commanders to tweak to meet their mission needs. It comes with relatively high initiative (for a Soviet vehicle) but this can be improved through use of the M-80 engine which enhances the tanks initiative in the movement phase – it also works on the SU-76 and SU-122A (spoilers!). As a Light Tank the T-70 doesn’t necessarily have the highest number of hit points or defense but a Low Noise System has the potential to give a light tank a nice defensive buff, if the dice are on your side.
