Obyekt 279 – Prototype Heavy MBT


Back here I presented a sketch showing what the Panzer Jager Mark One cybertank from The World of Drei looked like.

I found the above YouTube video by accident when doing some research on  the Soviet Obyekt 279 heavy MBT. I've also done a piece over on my writing blog. And you can find more pictures here too.

Now all I need to do is find a model of Obyekt 279, preferably in 10mm, if I can.


  1. I'm actually a big fan of that tank and always wished it was introduced into World of Tanks if only as an event tank (like moon landing Space Chaffees with lasers). I've seen two large kits for it (iirc 1/35th scale) a year or two back when I last looked but not anything smaller or for a more reasonable gaming scale. I suppose 3d printing would be a good option for that but I haven't checked to see if any files exist personally.

    1. I shall have to check out Shapeways.

  2. Look what I found:

  3. Nice find! It's in 15mm but the tank is surprisingly small for now brutish it looks IMO based on some interviews on YouTube done in front of the tank at the Russian museum where it is on display.
