Soviet inventions in WW2? Well, their airforce was complete soviet design. The Yak, and her many variants, for instance.

WW2 wasn't raging during the late 60s to my knowledge. It's quite clear that the T-64 is of an advanced design, and clearly inconceivable during WW2.

The Soviets were too busy fighting for their very survival to develop any superweapons. But they had plans for a flying submarine!

The Soviet Union did develope world's first rocket powered fighter during the war - the BI-1, but it was a failure. Manouvering the aircraft was difficult, it had low range and ammunition capacity.

Mind you, this was world's first rocket powered fighter - not aircraft.

The USSR literally invented sloping armor for tanks, which gave T-34s, and other Russian tanks, a huge advantage... which is party why the T-34 is listed as one of the best tanks in history (often beating out Panzers/Panthers... and only beat by very modern tanks). I think most Soviet advancement came in the Tanks, rather then muddling around with bombs and such. The Americans had the advantage of an Ocean Russia never had.

I'm tempted to say the AK-47, but that was after the war I'm pretty sure. However I do believe the PPSh spawned the 47.

They also invented a burrowing hovercraft fueled by poptarts, btw.

Do not forget the ram-jet engine. Soviets were among the first in producing jet fighters.

The ability to outlast a technologically superior foe. Ex. Air warfare. The Mikoyan MiG-3.

German BF-109 / Fw aces used to use MiG-3 aircraft's armament & design customizations.

TO highlight, during the German sieges of Soviet facilities, which was DEVASTATING, Soviet aircraft could be more easily maintained. While the German BFs, FWs, and UK Spitfires & US Grummans etc., required a steady supply of maintenance.

This proved between victory & defeat.Also the T-34s. In modern tech, as far as overall performance goes, the AK still outperforms many of its rivals. In VietNam etc. DUring the initial stages, the Germans had the edge.

But the BFs & Fws required a steady supply of materials for maintenance. Not the Soviet VVS like MiG-3, the Lavochin and even Polikarpov 16. This made the Soviet Air Force outlast a barrage, whereas the German luftwaffe crumbled & disintegrated once maintenance inflow was chocked.

Thanks to Soviet tech concept, the USSR was able to outlast a foe which was MUCH more advanced than it, which had the most modernized military arsenal in the world. The USSR broke the Nazi's military backboke, don't forget.

No, the first was German Nebelwerfer, which developement had started already before Hitler came to power in Germany.

Again, no. The first to use sloped armor on tanks were French.

You don't need "very modern tanks" to beat World War II era tank.

Germans did not use such.

All aircraft require if they are to be flown without worries of extra malfunctioning/accidents, including Soviet aircraft. Overlooked maintenance results to incidents that can cause pilots to lose their lives easily.

Wrong. The Luftwaffe was slowly beaten - mainly on the Western Front where it suffered its heaviest losses, and troubled by the lack of fuel during latter stage of the war, again, thanks to Western Allied effort. Aircraft do not fly without fuel.

I'm not sure exactly what the author of the thread is asking for. Soviet weapon designs? Soviet industrial advancements?

Right you are.

The "47" in the the Kalashnikov model in fact stood for the year it was made, which would be 1947
