I normally don’t repost Russian documents (that’s Ensign’s domain in general), but every now and then something quite interesting comes up. A lot of people actually ask “how much did a turret of tank XY weight” and the answer is usually not very obvious and not that easy to find. Yuri Pasholok however posted a Russian document, where these weights are written for Soviet purposes.
Please note that Yuri Pasholok states these numbers are just approximate. The table goes as such:
|Type of the vehicle||Weight without turret drive (kg)||Weight with turret drive (kg)|
|T-IV (Panzer IV)||3000||3220|
|T-III (Panzer III)||2000||2140|
|T-IIb (Panzer II)||650||700|
