T-34 Tank

by Matthew Hughes, Chris Mann, Chris Mann
Take an in-depth look at the development and history of World War II’s most revolutionary tank: the Russian T-34.

When it first appeared on the battlefield in July 1941, the Soviet T-34 was the best in the world—superior even to the latest German models. It became the most important tank of the war, instrumental in defeating Nazi Germany on the Eastern Front and bringing about the final Allied victory. Complete with photos, color cutaways, and three-view profile artworks, T-34 Tank offers an in-depth examination of this masterpiece of Soviet wartime engineering—which, with its superior firepower, armor protection, and mobility, represented a revolutionary leap forward in tank design. Detailing every aspect of the T-34’s development and service history, including design, armament, powerplant, crew positions, and armor, this essential guide lists all the variants produced, their markings, camouflage schemes, and full specifications.
