T34 Tank (2702) History:
The T-34, a Soviet medium tank, had a profound and lasting effect on the field of tank design. At its introduction in 1940, the T-34 possessed an unprecedented combination of firepower, mobility, protection and ruggedness. Its 76.2 mm (3 in) high-velocity tank gun provided a substantial increase in firepower over any of its contemporaries while its well-sloped armour was difficult to penetrate by most contemporary anti-tank weapons. The 60 degree sloped armor and Christie suspension were inherited from the design of American Walter Christie’s M1928 tank, versions of which were sold turret-less to the Red Army and documented as “farm tractors”, after being rejected by the U.S. Army. When it was first encountered in 1941, German general Paul Ludwig Ewald von Kleist called it “the finest tank in the world” and Heinz Guderian affirmed the T-34’s “vast superiority” over existing German armour of the period. he T-34 was the mainstay of Soviet armoured forces throughout the Second World War. Its general specifications remained nearly unchanged until late 1944, when it received a major upgrade to firepower and ergonomics with the introduction of the greatly improved T-34/85 variant. Despite this, its production method had been continuously refined to meet the constantly increasing needs of the Eastern Front, making the T-34 quicker and cheaper to produce. Soviet industry would eventually produce over 80,000 T-34s of all variants, allowing steadily greater numbers to be fielded while the war progressed despite the loss of tens of thousands of them in combat against the German Wehrmacht.
