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.

The MS-1 is a Soviet tier 1 light tank.

The first Soviet mass-produced tank with a total of 959 vehicles manufactured from 1928 through 1931.

It is the smallest and lightest of the tier 1 tanks, and with its tail and hat, possibly the most visually distinctive. It also has a satisfying rumbling "put-put-put" engine sound.

The MS-1 leads to the AT-1, the T-26, the T-60, the BT-2, and the SU-18.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Good armor


Cons:


  • Poor hit points
  • Low engine power


Performance

This tank is no speed demon, but the thicker armor, complimented by excellent gun options, makes it a very effective tank. Although slow and hard to maneuver, it can take a beating and packs a punch. For single shot guns, the 45 mm mod. 1932 has the highest damage and penetration for its tier. Sniping with this gun can be very effective. For auto-cannons, the advantage is less pronounced, but the 23mm VJa is still an efficient gun for its tier. As with all auto-cannons, you need to get close to be effective with them.

Stock, it is slower and weaker than the American and German starter tanks, but it has the thickest armor. The front armor is almost twice as thick as the T1 Cunningham's. It has the fastest turret traverse speed of its peers, making aiming a little snappier. In terms of play style, it is a bit slower and more deliberate.

Since this tank has the lowest horsepower in the game, adding a bunch of equipment that adds weight does have a noticeable impact on it's performance. Keep that in mind. Also, don't try upgrading the turret and using the 45 mm while using the stock engine. Without it, the tank will be extremely slow and immobile, but it picks up speed again as soon as the engine is upgraded.

The 45mm cannon is by far the best single-shot weapon available to tier 1's. It will have no problem penetrating all of the tanks the MS-1 faces, and it has a magnificent reload speed and shell capacity.

The MS-1 has a very small profile, making it much more difficult to both detect and hit when compared to the other tier 1 tanks.

The MS-1 can occasionally be seen platooning with higher tier tanks. Some claim that it brings luck (whether in truth or in jest varies).


Early Research

  • The 37mm B-3 is a nice upgrade over the stock gun.
  • Upgrading to the GAZ-M1 engine is very helpful since it's both more powerful and it weighs less.
  • You can try your hand with the auto-cannons if you like, or ignore them since they're not required.
  • Research the AMO-3 engine last since it's hard to even tell the difference from the GAZ-M1. It might help more going up hills.

Historical Info

The MS-1, Russian: Maliy Soprovozhdeniya-Perviy, "First Small [Vehicle for] Support") was a late 1920's designed Soviet light tank. Produced from 1928–31, it was based on the Renault FT-17, with the addition of a vertically sprung suspension. At this point in time, Russia did not have any specific armored warfare divisions or units, so a new Special Bureau was specifically created and its first specification tender was for a 3 ton, 2-man light tank capable of 7.5 mph (12.1 km/h). It would be protected by 16 mm of armor and equipped with a 37 mm (1.5 in) gun. By early 1925, the total weight had increased to 5 tons.

Development

A "Tank Bureau" was formed in May 1924 for the development of Soviet tanks. A specification was issued for a 3-tonne two-man light tank capable of 7.5 mph (12.1 km/h). It would be protected by 16 mm of armor and equipped with a 37 mm (1.5 in) gun. By 1925 the allowable weight had increased to 5 tonnes.

The tank was designed by Professor V. Zaslavsky at a new Tank Bureau set up under the Central Directorate of Military Industries. The 35-horsepower truck engine (a copy of the Italian FIAT 15 ter) was supplied by the Moscow AMO Factory, and the gun was a modified copy of the French 37 mm Puteaux SA 18 cannon. The sprung suspension which would allow a tank to travel faster over rough ground was the biggest improvement over the Renault. A prototype called the T-16 was tested in June 1927.

The T-16 was deemed a failure, as it had problems with its transmission failing too often and its inability to cross trenches more than 1.5 meters wide. The T-16's maneuverability was only marginally better than that of the Renault. Meanwhile the КБ ОАТ drew up plans for an improved version of the T-16 which was accepted for production in July as the T-18, with the tank additionally noted as an MC-1 ("low maintenance type 1").

It was the first Soviet tank adopted for serial production. 959 vehicles were produced from 1928 through 1931.

Operating History

Service in the forces of the first Soviet tanks did not leave behind a large number of clear combat examples. An experimental company equipped with T-18s took part in defending the Far Eastern Railway against Manchurian forces in 1929. They were removed from service in 1932 and given over to training. Following the German invasion of the Soviet Union a number of MS-1s were given 45 mm (1.8 in) guns and entered service as the T-18M.
