How do the crew fit in LT432??? the hull looks to be about 60cm deep and turret even less. There is an engine and a gun breech and some ammo in there too. Are they all laying flat or only children drive these tanks? Or maybe its remote controlled?

It's Russian. The Party makes you fit in it; Remember, SovjetUnion was big on bioscience.

I recon it's a drone, the crew are in the back of a truck five miles away!

 

 

 

Lets be blunt, these idiotic prototype tanks should be absolute junk, but this is a very silly game where things like internal volume work on the TARDIS principle!

As it is a Soviet tank, they might have used trained dogs to operate it. This is probably why no one's heard a woof out of Szarik for a long time.

Soviet tanks have allways been quite cramped.

But I would be more concerned on how did they fit the 3rd man in ELC Even 90! :trollface:

They get a whole bucket of vodka for breakfast and are then thrown into a huge blender. That pulp then gets poured through the hatch. Voila!

Glorious soviet engineering, comrade!
Oh, and it gets even better, if you read the tank description ingame you will find out that not only it was designed to fit its crew, but also... "an extra deployment of troops was also to be carried." 
Yes, that thing is basically an APC, supposed to drop off some infantry! As i said, GLORIOUS SOVIET ENGINEERING!!!:trollface:

lt432 isnt that small tho, it is nearly the same size as obj430. only the turret is a tad smaller, hull should be same

Oh, so that's why the TC was sticking out of the turret. I thought he was just being, you know, german! :)

Well generally if you would be around 5' 4" or 5' 6" feet tall and enlist in Soviet Union Army back then, they would make you a tank driver. Of course there was a downside to it as well, because earlier version of tanks had the driver hatch made in a way that you had to open it by pushing it out and that caused a problem when a turret got hit and it's gun was blocking the drivers way out. So, you would burn to death in your tank when hit, because you could not get out.

 

Later versions had the driver hatch made that way that you would slightly push it up and then to the side so even the drivers had a chance to escape when their tank got hit and set on fire.

 

But if your tank would get hit to the turret, no one would survived since Russians used the circular shape of a turret to store the ammunition in it, so after one penetrating hit the ammo stored in the turret would explode and you all would die.

You are partially right, but the reason behind it was that during WWII Soviet tactic was to go to the battle buttoned up (all hatches closed) and basically in a hurray style drive forward to the enemy. While German tank commanders were usually looking out from their hatches in order to get better situational awareness and asses their surroundings. 

 

Also all German tanks were equipped with radios and Russians were still on signaling flags, that meant better and faster target acquisition for the German forces compare to the slow and outdated Russian way.
