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. When equipped with the 45mm gun it can kill any other tier 1 in around three shots making this tank a very deadly tier 1 to come across. It also has the best penetration of any tier 1.

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

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.
