This Revell Germany 1/72 scale Soviet T-34/85 features a rotating turret with 85mm gun, easy to assemble vinyl tracks with individual links and sections and decal set for two versions (Soviet Army, Unknown Unit, Russia, Autumn 1944 or Soviet Army, 55th tank brigade, 7th tank corps, Berlin, April 1945)
The T-34 was the mainstay of Soviet armoured forces throughout the war. Its general specifications remained nearly unchanged until early 1944, when it received a firepower upgrade with the introduction of the greatly improved T-34/85 variant. Its production method was continuously refined and rationalized to meet the needs of the Eastern Front, making the T-34 quicker and cheaper to produce. The Soviets ultimately built over 80,000 T-34s of all variants, allowing steadily greater numbers to be fielded despite the loss of tens of thousands in combat against the German Wehrmacht. Replacing many light and medium tanks in Red Army service, it was the most-produced tank of the war, as well as the second most-produced tank of all time (after its successor, the T-54/T-55 series). With 44,900 lost during the war, it also suffered the most tank losses ever. T-34 variants were widely exported after World War II, and as recently as 2018 more than 130 were still in service.
