1.
Броныа крепка, и танки наши быстры,
и наши лыуди мужества полны!
В строыу стоыат, Советскиые танкисты,
своыеы великоы Родины сыны!

"Припев":
Гремыа огныом, сверкаыа блеском стали,
поыдут машины в ыаростниы покход!
Когда нас в боы пошлыот товарищ Сталин,
и первыи маршал в боы нас поведыёт!

2.
Заводов труд, и труд колкхозныкх пашен,
мы защитим, страну своыу кхраныа!
Ударноы силоы, орудиыныкх башен,
и быстротоы, и натиском огныа!

"Припев"

3.
Пусть помнит враг, укрывшиысыа в засаде,
мы начеку, мы за врагом следим!
Чужоы земли, мы не кхотим ни пыади,
но и своыеы, вершка не отдадим!

"Припев"

4.
А ыесли к нам, полезет враг матыориы,
он будет бит, повсыуду и безде!
Тогда нажмут, водители стартыоры,
и по лесам, по сопкам, по боде!

"Припев"

Bronya krepka, i tanki nashi bystry,
i nashi lyudi muzhestva polny!
V stroyu stoyat, Sovetskiye tankisty,
svoyey velikoy Rodiny syny!

Gremya ognyom, sverkaya bleskom stali,
poydut mashiny v yarostniy pokhod!
Kogda nas v boy poshlyot tovarishch Stalin,
i perviy marshal v boy nas povedyot!

2.
Zavodov trud, i trud kolkhoznykh pashen,

Udarnoy siloy, orudiynykh bashen,
i bystrotoy, i natiskom ognya!

"Pripev"

3.
Pust' pomnit vrag, ukryvshiysya v zasade,

Chuzhoy zemli, my ne khotim ni pyadi,
no i svoyey, vershka ne otdadim!

"Pripev"

A yesli k nam, polezet vrag matyoriy,

Togda nazhmut, voditeli startyory,

"Pripev"

1.
The armour is hard and our tanks are fast,
And our men are full of courage!
The Soviet tankmen are ready for action,
Sons of their Great Motherland!

"Refrain":
Thundering with fire, glinting with steel,
The tanks will begin a harsh campaign!
When we're called to battle by Comrade Stalin,
And the First Marshal will lead us in this battle!

2.
In keeping our country, we guard,
The work of factories and farms!
By power of our gun turrets,
By our fastness and pressure of fire!

"Refrain"

3.
Let's enemy, who hidden in ambush, remember,
We watch for him, we are on guard!
We want not a foot of foreign land,
But we will not give up an inch of our own land!

"Refrain"

4.
But if the enemy attacks us,
We will beat him everywhere!
Tankdrivers will start engines,
And drive by forests, mountains and even on water!

"Refrain"
