About the PT-76 Amphibious Tank:

The Russian Plavayushchiy Tank 76 or PT-76 to those who wouldn’t dare attempt the word, was a light, amphibious tank developed in the early 1950s. The PT-76’s boat shaped hull allowed it to easily traverse in water while two built-in hydro jets allow for amphibious propulsion. This meant, during its service with the NVA throughout the Vietnam War, it could easily travel through rice paddies and traverse bridges that were not sturdy enough for heavier tanks. In 1969 during the Battle of Ben Het, the NVA’s PT-76 light amphibious tanks faced off against US M48 Patton tanks. One PT-76 scored a direct hit on the turret of an M48 killing two crewmen and wounding the other two, however the NVA would ultimately lose.
