T-29 is a designation given to two Soviet tank projects. The first one, also called the TG-3, was an unsuccessful proposal by the German engineer Grotte. It was heavier than the T-28 (TG-1). The other one is an experimental version of the T-28 on a Christie suspension developed at OKMO by Barykov and Tsiets. The T-28 was modified with a BT running gear and a gearing system to power the rear wheels when in wheeled mode. This version was designated the T-29-5. Trials were conducted on it at NIIBT. An improved version called the T-29-4 was built in 1935. More improvements led to the T-29-1 which was modified with a new gun and thicker armor.
