The PT-76 is a Soviet amphibious light tank that was introduced in the early 1950s and soon became the standard reconnaissance tank of the Soviet Army and the other Warsaw Pact armed forces. It was widely exported to other friendly states, like India, Iraq, Syria, North Korea and North Vietnam. Overall, some 25 countries used the PT-76. The tank's full name is Floating Tank–76 (плавающий танк, plavayushchiy tank, or ПТ-76). 76 stands for the caliber of the main armament: the 76.2 mm D-56T series rifled tank gun.
The PT-76 is used in the reconnaissance and fire-support roles. Its chassis served as the basis for a number of other vehicle designs, many of them amphibious, including the BTR-50 armored personnel carrier, the ZSU-23-4 self-propelled antiaircraft gun, the ASU-85 airborne self-propelled gun and the 2K12 Kub anti-aircraft missile launch vehicle.
From the world of COBI comes a fantastic model of the PT-76 floating tank. The model is highly detailed and has printed blocks rather than stickers. Not only does this help give it fantastic detailing to the model but is more durable than stickers. The vehicle is equipped with movable wheels that work with real track for when you want to move the vehicle. It has an openable hatch in the tower that allows you to place a figure inside. A hinged hatch allows access to the chamber where the vehicle's block engine is located. The vehicle has been equipped with accessories that not only decorate the tank, but can also be used for fun. The set includes a fuel canister, crowbar and axe. The whole set is complemented by a figure of a Vietnamese tank personnel. He is armed with a machine gun made by Polish manufacturer PM-63 RAK, which at that time was standard equipment for armoured crews.
The PT-76 tank is an ideal set for both children and adult fans of construction blocks. Whether it will be added to a collection, used in a playroom or added to a diorama this high quality model constructed of COBI building blocks is a must for any enthusiast.
