Apart from Mali not having used any armour at all - other than BTRs - against islamist - or other rebel - attacks to my knowledge (there was at least one rebel group with a company's worth of PT-76 "collected" around Gao), one proof that at least by now the T-34 is no longer in service there is the fact that the EU training mission in Mali - EUTM08 in 2016, by Swedish and Italian troops - only trained local personnel in the use of T-54 and PT-76. The Type 62 light tanks also seem to have been abandoned.
