Details

During the 1970s, the Soviet Central Auto and Tractor Directorate began development of a multi-purpose/light armored vehicle which would replace the aging AT-P series of artillery vehicles.  The base vehicle, MT-L, was developed using the PT-76 amphibious light tank chassis.  Adding up to 14mm of armor to the vehicle designated it as the MT-LB.  The MT-LB was equipped with one PKT machine gun and powered by a 240 hp V-8 diesel truck engine which propels the MT-LB up to 38mph for a distance up to 310 miles.  Crewed by two, driver and commander, the MT-LB was used primarily to transport up to 11 passengers. Additional operational duties included towing artillery, an ambulance, a bulldozer and chemical reconnaissance vehicle.  Several other varients were produced for the other 23 countries which used the MT-LB, with additional varients still being produced at the present time for countries which currently have the MT-LB in active operations.

 

This paper model builds the MT-LB in an overall green camouflage.
