Well, it was new to me...."T100"
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Very interesting...thanks, Guys! Never heard of either before. Seem to be Russian manifestations of the stereotypical German "Rolling Monument" syndrome...with even less favorable outcomes.

The T100 in particular seems to be poorly conceived in that, for that weight penalty, I'd have thought one very capable and large tank main gun would be better than two smaller ones, but I guess they came to the same conclusion...

Not just Russian manifestations but a view into certain schools of thought at the time. As I recall, the French had the Char 2C and the British had the Vickers Independent & A9/Mk I Cruiser but the Russians pulled it off a bit more elegantly with their multi-turret prototypes (the T-28 & T-35 were pretty slab-sided...)
