Arguably the best medium tank of World War II, the T-34-85
was a crucial factor in the outcome of the conflict. Over 35,000 were produced,
meaning that it also came to represent, from a Soviet standpoint, the supremacy
of socialist industry over capitalism.
It was the antithesis of German over-engineering. Designers
favored simple solutions that used fewer resources. It was therefore available
in greater numbers – a telling factor as Axis forces were pushed out of the
Soviet Union and back to Berlin.
The T-34-85 was an up-gunned version of the T-34 tank which
carried a 76mm gun that was insufficient at dealing with tanks like the Tiger
and Panther. A new turret allowed the installation of an 85mm gun that was
capable of penetrating German armor with greater ease. This tank also
represented the first proper mass production of a sloped-hull design which
meant that the armor could afford to be thinner while still providing the same
effective protection. Coupled with sloping on the turret, the survivability of
the tank compared to the original T-34 design was much better.
