This was being developed as a new tank that would exceed the T-34 tank as to its characteristics. In so doing, the experience of using tanks during the Second World War was taken into account.

Some prototype vehicles were manufactured in 1945. Having been subjected to trials, the tank was accepted for service and was put into production in 1947, being later on continually upgraded in order to enhance its combat and technical characteristics.
