The T-55 tank first appeared in 1958, a result of numerous improvements made to the (1949) T-54 series, and with a lineage stretching back to the wartime T-34 and the T-44.

This title showcases the talents of several leading modellers, and presents Serbian, Iraqi, Czech, Syrian, and Russian variants across 1/35 and 1/72 scales.

Editorial Reviews

"To produce a book on modelling one of the most complex AFV subjects would be a daunting process for any author. The authors of this book have produced, in my opinion, one of the most complete books in Osprey's highly useful modelling series." -Jim Rae, Armorama (February 2006)"On my first reading of the manual, I couldn't put it down until I read and studied it from front to back (and then again!), so I'm going to give this manual a definite thumbs up, highly recommended from this modelers point of view." -Mark Smith, Armorama (December 2005)
