Gauntletin what numbers?

13 tanks, yes that doesn´t sound much but that is over 20% Finlands modern tanks( tanks that were able to destroy new russian tanks, tanks that weren´t from WW1) Other modern tanks were all Stugs:smokin: T34-76c.jpg

Yes T-80 is the T-34's great great great great grandson.

You can even find pics of rebuilt T-34/85's with T-62 cast roadwheels.

And yes we should start with T-34-57 and work out way up.

'[11PzG USMA2010']So you are saying that the T-34 and the T-80 are related? :uhoh:

he's probably also saying that we're descending from the monkeys! :uhoh:

the IS-3 looks more like a squeezed patton than the T72. those 1946-1960-tanks all share the IS3-style look with a big hull, wheels on top of the suspension wheels (rollers?), sloped front (geeh, shock), rather ugly rear, and a big, flat turret.

(i'm not saying that they got their design *from* the IS3, but that they *share* it)

consider it tank fassion, rather than relations ;)

The IS-3 is a redesigned IS-2 hull and the rounded turret. It was redesigned to give a better ballistic shape to counter the Tiger II ausf B. Mechanically wise it is the same engine, same transmission, same suspension, and same tracks. IIRC it is even the same gun.

The T-54 was a improved T-44 with a new turret design. The T-54's turret was inspired by the IS-3 but its a different shape, different size, different height, and carried a different gun.

Cant believe I forgot to mention this...

DO NOT PUT FUEL DRUMS ON THE T-34/76's!

T-34/76 model 1940 and 41's did not carry external fuel tanks. Very early models sometimes went in to combat with a spare transmission strapped to the rear engine deck. t34_szaloga4.jpg

T-34/76 model 1942's and T-34/76 model 1943's carried armored fuel boxes mounted on left and right rear of rear upper hull plate over the treads. T34C.jpg

T-34/85 DID carry fuel drums on the back. Usually it was three drums but sometimes it was four. One drum was always lubricating oil for the engine and the rest fuel. Fuel drums had to be pumped by hand by the crew into the vehicles fuel tanks. uat34-1.jpg

T-34/76 model 1942 should have mostly steel rimmed roadwheels or a mix of the two. T3476ZE_002.jpg

Model 1943 used a mix or usually first and last large roadwheels were rubber and rest steel.

Most T-34/85's had rubber but it could be a mix.

YES for new T34 models and variants. That's all I ask for FH models now!

And about the earlier post about T34s built in Stalingrads tractor factory, I read from Beevor's book that the T34 were driven straight to combat without a paintjob nor even aiming device! The gun was aimed through the barrel. I found that pretty interesting.

Anlushac11Chimpanzee's ya silly goose.

:lol: :)

with those spare drums (i've climbed a T34/85 with 5-6 small drums on it), did they ever have to get out of the tank when they were in "hot" areas, or did they usually manage to fill up the internal tanks just before entering a town, etc? was there a common policy here?

the armored boxes - how well armored were they? just enough to stop rifle bullets, or did they have to depend on angle to do the job even with such bullets?

They were bullet proof and artillery splinter proof, but a cannon round or A/T rifle round should take one out. Rudel used to aim at the tanks on the back and shoot those with the 37mm cannons on his Stuka to set the tank ablaze.
