Inspired by the iconic Polish TV series Four Tank-men and a Dog, the VI T-34-85 Rudy is a fun and sturdy tank to add to your Garage. Originally introduced as a Soviet tank, it's the only multinational vehicle in World of Tanks. The crew, which can be either Polish or Soviet, comes with Brothers in Arms as a "zero" perk. Szarik, the trusted dog and an essential member of the crew, is the perfect companion to stay by your side as you charge towards your enemy.
This isn't the first time dogs have accompanied tank crews into action. The use of anti-tank dogs in battle remains uncertain, but reports suggest that starting in 1941, the Red Army trained and deployed dogs to run, dive under enemy tanks, and detonate explosives. This tactic was fraught with mishap since the scent of Soviet diesel engines, which had been used to train the dogs, ended up luring the canines back to their own lines. Soviet anti-tank dogs are rumored to have destroyed at least a dozen enemy tanks, and they were, quite literally, a ticking bomb on the battlefield.
