Kharkiv Morozov T-34


Medium Tank

Victory in the East.



Perhaps no other tank influenced the outcome of World War 2 (1939-1945) quite like the classic Soviet T-34. Its design qualities were forward-thinking and its availability in numbers secured it as a war-winning design that went on to see considerable post-war use all over the globe. Designed in the late-1930s and introduced in 1940, the T-34 saw production surpass 80,000 units as the Red Army marched its way to Berlin atop the tracks of this excellent combat vehicle. From Operation Barbarossa to the Manchurian Campaign, the T-34 could be found as the spearhead of Soviet armored actions. Even into modern conflicts, the T-34 occasionally makes its appearance - a testament to its design and accessibility.

Qualities





Finer Details



Angled armor surfaces, spaced roadwheels, and wider track links made the T-34 an instant standout when compared to contemporaries. This gave the tank a unique appearance as well as the qualities to deal with many battlefield challenges.


Battlefield Superiority



The T-34 came as a nasty surprise to German anti-tank forces and quickly changed the balance of power for the short-term, leading the enemy to make considerable investments in a counter to the unforgettable Soviet design.


Retirement be Damned



Operators of the T-34 series reached 40 countries before its end was written - though, rather surprisingly, a select-few nations continue to operate the type even today including North Korea, Cuba, and Yemen.


Unsurpassed Wartime Production



The T-34 was produced to the tune of 84,070 total units in two major variants and across three countries (Soviet Union, Poland, Czechoslovakia), making it a definitive success of the period.
