Historical Reference

In June 1954, six proposed projects of upgraded heavy tanks and tank destroyers were presented at the conference held in Detroit. One such project was the TS-5, intended as a tank destroyer which featured a closed stationary cabin. A dummy vehicle was built, but further development was discontinued.
