The T-45 was light tank prototype, meant as a stop-gap measure until the T-70 could enter production. Based on the T-60 (with a new gun, turret and engine), it wasn't inferior to the T-70 in a number of aspects. However, there was no real match between the two and the T-45 was relegated to the dustbin of history. The prototype was sent into battle where it was most likely destroyed.
