The Russian T34 medium tank was one of the most significant tank designs of the war. It was instrumental in turning the tide of the war for the Russians. Some consider the T34 to be the best Allied medium tank of the war. Designed to be shell proof by M. Koshkin, there were over 35,000 of these tanks produced during the war. Many saw service post WW II in locations like Korea. The T34 was tough, maneuverable, reliable, and could traverse virtually any type of terrain.
