The T34/85 was built with the aim of overpowering the new and improved German Tiger and Panther tanks which the Russian forces were encountering.

It was given a powerful 85mm main gun and a 3-man turret enclosed by cast-iron heavy armor, while the hull featured sloped armor. Nonetheless, it was a relatively lightweight vehicle and thanks to the power supplied by the 500hp V-12 diesel engine was very maneuverable.

Around 29,000 were produced between late 1943 and June 1945, and together with its predecessor the T34/76 it provided the impetus for the Russian advance on Berlin.

  • The T34/85 form with sloped hull armor is faithfully recreated, including renderings of the rough cast iron finish characteristic of Soviet tanks. Weld joints are also accurately recreated.
  • Features moveable long-barreled 85mm main gun.
  • Gunner's rail on hull and other details are depicted using separate parts.
  • Belt-type parts give an accurate and fuss-free recreation of the tracks.

  • Commander and gunner hatches are openable.
  • Comes with marking options to recreate 4 WWII tanks and one in the Korean War:
