Friulmodel Tracks for the Tamiya JS2 kit
Posted by Papa Bear on Wednesday, October 03, 2018 8:01 AM

Hello,

Does anyone know the difference between the Friulmodel ATL-14 and ATL-54 track sets for the Russian JS2 tank? Both list the same tanks but the ATL-54 says "Light Type".

Thanks for any insight!

Best regards,

Mike

In an effort to save both weight and materials, the Soviets switched from the the earlier style of tracks which had guide teeth on each link, (the ATL-14), to the later with guide teeth on every other link, (the ATL-54). Check photo references if you are building a specific vehicle to see which ones to use, although I don't know how commonly the later type were used. I've only seen a few photo so far of the later type on Battle of Berlin JS-2s, most photos seem to show the early-type tracks. One photo even shows a mix of both.
