the Russian PT boat... was built with a tank turret. Think about that, mighty top heavy, but well armored and eliminates a lot of design time

They just found one, and pulled it up, from the Volga River near Stalingrad, and clearly it had been in a lot of fighting, and they were quickly stopping leaks by pounding in wood cones. Some pretty big hole must have sunk it though

  1. BK type of armored gunboats. Soviets build couple types, some had two T-34 turrets, MLRS's, guns, mines, ect. This one was BK-31, "only" one tank turret.
