The Matilda IV is a Soviet tier 5 premium medium tank.

A British tank supplied to the U.S.S.R. under Lend-Lease. A total of 1,084 vehicles were sent to the Soviet Union, with some lost at sea during transport to Murmansk.

Though the Matilda IV is classified as a medium tank, when compared to similar-tiered vehicles it emerges about equal in terms of firepower and armor, but its low mobility lends this tank to be played more as a heavy tank, specifically a tiny stock KV-1.

Historical Info

The Soviets began receiving the Matilda infantry tank from the British via Lend-Lease in 1941, following the German invasion in June of that year. While they liked the thick armor, they were highly dissatisfied with the Matilda's low mobility, and especially its Ordnance QF 2-pounder gun, which not only had inadequate penetration but also lacked a useful high explosive round. In order to at least address the armament problem, the GAU (Glavnoye Artilleriskoye Upravleniye - Main Artillery Directorate) began a project in November 1941 to rearm the Matilda with the 76 mm ZiS-5 that also armed the indigenous KV-1 heavy tank. One Matilda Mk. III was thus modified in December 1941, essentially by removing the complete gun and gun mantlet assembly associated with the 2-pounder gun, and welding in place the gun and gun mantlet assembly of the KV-1. The modified Matilda underwent trials that same month, but development was cancelled in January 1942, primarily due to conflict between the GAU and the GABTU (Glavnoye AvtoBronetankovoye Upravleniye - Main Automobile and Tank Directorate), the body primarily responsible for Soviet tank development. The arrival of Matilda CS tanks under Lend-Lease that same year, which were armed 3-inch howitzers with adequate high explosive ammunition, and the increasing production of Soviet T-34 and KV-1 tanks also made the project superfluous.
