Specifically, the mismatch in crew values caused by commander's 10% crew skill bonus. Outside of a crew of 1 commander only, 100% crew is a fiction. The client values, given for 100% crew, will normally be taken into battle with 110% crew skill members aside from specific functions, causing their actual performance to deviate from the expected client value. These differences are taken into account in tooltip boxes.

The T-54 is a Soviet tier 9 medium tank.

The first prototype was constructed at the end of 1944. After successful trials in 1945–1947 the T-54 mod. 1947 was adopted for service. 713 vehicles were constructed before production was phased out. In 1949 production of a new variant was launched.

The T-54 leads to the T-62A, and the Object 140.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Good frontal protection
  • Superb agility and good top speed
  • Low profile, with good camouflage values
  • High rate-of-fire with good gun dispersion change values
  • Very high penetration with HEAT ammunition


Cons:


  • Poor gun depression
  • Below average HP pool
  • Vulnerable ammunition rack placed next to the driver
  • Lowest penetration and shell damage among Tier 9 medium tanks with regular AP ammunition
  • Awful stock grind


Performance

The T-54 is the ultimate main battle tank. It features a great combination of speed, armor, and firepower when fully upgraded. Its well sloped 120mm front, when angled can even bounce IS-7 gold rounds. The turret is also very well armored, and can reliably bounce shots, with the only weakspots on it being the two small cupolas which can be rather difficult to hit.

There are two viable gun options on the T-54. One is the D-54(leading to the T62A). The D54, when compared to the D10T2S (leading to the Obj 140), the D-54 has a slightly lower rate of fire, and worse dispersion in exchange for 18mm more penetration. However both guns feature the same excellent 330mm pen HEAT round which is more than enough to deal with even the most heavily armored targets, leading most to choose the D10T2S over the D-54. Both guns, when compared to their 105mm L7A1 armed NATO counterparts, are lacking in standard round penetration, alpha and accuracy, but make up for this with their great DPM.

The T-54 also has a great specific power of 19.74 HP/T, and in conjunction with a traverse speed of 48 deg/s, fantastic terrain resistance, and a top speed of 56km/h make the T-54 extremely mobile, second only to the Leo PTA when compared to other tier IX medium tanks.

Keeping all this in mind, in battle the T-54 plays as the ultimate medium tank. It's low profile can allow it to sidehug tall German heavies such as the E-75 and E-100, it's mobility lets it perform flanking maneuvers with ease, and when the fight gets tough, the tough frontal armor and excellent gun will help it survive. The only limitation to this tank is the poor gun depression, which somewhat limits it's ability to abuse terrain, but asking for more would just be greedy.


Early Research

  • The LB-1 carries over from the T-44.
  • Research the LB-1 gun if you have not already.
  • Research the new turret, it will proved a lot of extra protection and a small RoF boost, and is needed for to research the top guns
  • Then pick whatever gun you want (with either of the top guns, you will earn the XP needed for the engine and suspension much faster than with the LB-1), both have the same research cost.
  • Get the suspension next, it gives slightly better traverse speed, and more importantly, improved terrain resistance values which will improve the acceleration
  • Research the engine
  • Research whichever tank you want, be it the T-62a, or Obj 140.

Historical Info

T54 Russian battle tank
The T-54 and T-55 tanks were a series of main battle tanks designed in the Soviet Union. The first T-54 prototype appeared in March 1945, just before the end of the Second World War. The T-54 entered full production in 1947 and became the main tank for armored units of the Soviet Army, armies of the Warsaw Pact countries, and others. T-54s and T-55s were involved in many of the world's armed conflicts during the late 20th century. It is the most produced tank in human history.


Development

Development of the first T-54 prototype started in October 1944 at the OKB-520 design bureau, at the Stalin Ural Tank Factory No. 183 (Uralvagonzavod), in Nizhny Tagil. The initial design was completed in December, with a prototype completed in February 1945.

Trials conducted between March and April 1945 resulted in the new tank being commissioned for service with the Red Army as the T-54. The tank had virtually the same hull and drive train as the T-44. Major differences included thicker front armour (120 mm on the upper section and 90 mm on the lower section) and a newly designed driver's hatch and vision slot. The turret ring increased in diameter to 1800 mm and had thicker armour (180 mm on the front, between 90 mm and 150 mm on the sides and 30 mm on the roof). The main armament was the 100 mm D-10TK cannon, with two 7.62 mm GWT machine guns. The tank was powered by a new V-54 12-cylinder 38.88 litre water-cooled diesel engine developing 520 hp (388 kW) at 2,000 rpm with a two-stage reduction gearbox. Fuel capacity was increased to 530 litres in the internal fuel tank and 165 litres in the external fuel tank. Unlike the T-34, the external fuel tanks were connected to the fuel system. The rubber rollers on the road wheels were widened. The T-54 weighed 35.5 tonnes, making it slightly slower than the T-44 at 43.5 km/h. The road range increased to 360 km. It was decided to modernize the tank before production started. The new tank's turret was tried on two modified T-44 tanks.

Another T-54 prototype was built in July 1945 which received the alternative designation Ob'yekt 137. The tank was equipped with a new turret armed with 100 mm LB-1 tank gun and 7.62 mm SG medium coaxial machine gun. The turret armour was thickened (200 mm on the front, between 125 mm and 160 mm on the sides). The tank was armed with two 7.62 mm SG-43 medium machine guns mounted inside fixed boxes on the fenders, each with 500 rounds of ammunition and operated by the dr����. The turret was fitted with a 12.7 mm DShK anti-aircraft heavy machine gun. The fuel capacity was increased to 545 litres in internal fuel tanks and 180 litres in external fuel tanks. Because of this, the road range remained 360 km despite the increased weight of 39.15 tonnes. This prototype went through trials between July and November 1945. Although there were numerous drawbacks which required correction and many alterations which had to be made to the vehicle's design, it was decided to begin serial production of the new vehicle and the vehicle officially entered service on 29 April 1946. It would go into production in Nizhni Tagil and Kharkiv in 1947.

Historical Accuracy Errata

The following are consensus errors or inconsistencies which have been identified with the configuration of the vehicle in question and conflict with information available on the public record. The causes for these divergences in the game are normally not disclosed and may be rooted in game balance.

* The stabilized D-10T2S gun used by later modifications of the T-54 is mislabeled "D-10T2C".
  • The 100 mm D-54 has substantially lower penetration than the U-8TS used by the Tier 10 Soviet medium tanks; they are historically the same gun with different stabilization systems.
  • The more prolific 1951 turret used by nearly all production T-54s and the Chinese Type 59 copy is not available to the Soviet T-54 in the game
  • Neither the D-10T2S nor the D-54 were historically fitted with the 1949 turret
  • The 120 mm frontal hull was only used by the original 1945 and 1946 variants; it was reduced to 100 mm on the 1949 and later models due to overloading on the front of the suspension
  • The V-54 engine did not have 600hp but 500hp also the T-54 did not get the upgraded 800hp engine this was only applied to the T-55
