- Experimental prototypes of the T-43 cannot be recommended for mass production for the following reasons:
- Insufficient firepower with the F-34 gun.
- Insufficient armour thickness in the front of the hull and the turret.
- Poor ratio of armour thickness between the front, sides, and read of the hull.
- Unreliable function of suspension elements of the tank (road wheels and drive wheels).
- GBTU will provide the NKTP with a draft of tactical-technical characteristics within five days. The NKTP will give its conclusions regarding the draft within 10 days.
