PS: the collection seems to have extended; there are more tanks now.
The Moscow Metro, together with World of Tanks, issued Troika collection cards.
The Moscow Metro on June 11, together with the developers of World of Tanks, released a branded collection of Troika cards (a refilled transport card) with images of Soviet tanks. About 10 thousand copies of each of the 10 variants can be purchased at the metropolitan subway online store, Julia Temnikova, Customer Service Deputy Chief of the Metro, told TASS on Thursday.
“The issuance of Troika collection cards has long been a good tradition of the Moscow Metro. On the 75th anniversary of the Great Victory, we issue a special “Troika” edition featuring Soviet tanks in collaboration with the developers of the popular World of Tanks game. We are sure that the new “Troika” fans of the game will like it – now they will be able to pay for public transport travel with a card with the image of their beloved Soviet tank, “

Cost: 100 rub.
There are 10 USSR tanks to choose from: T-34-85, T-54, BT-7, IS-2, IS-3, IS-7, KV-2, MS-1, SU-100, SU-152.
