Product code: AC5933
The T-34 tank design is arguably the most important tank of all time
with over 84,000 made and innovative design features.
The T-34/76 first saw action in late 1941, and was a significant leap

enabled it to cope with the mud and snow of the Eastern Front. It
married the perfect combination of thick, sloped armour and an efficient
gun, along with extreme sturdiness, reliability, ease of manufacturing
German tanks struggled in the cold conditions of the Eastern Front – the
rubber peeling away from the road wheels, engines being slow to start
and needing to be slowly warmed-up, machine guns jamming constantly, and

snow and mud. The T-34s ran circles around the struggling German
hardware – especially as the Luftwaffe was more often than not grounded
due to the bad weather, so couldn't harry the Soviets.
This kit allows you the option of assembling the tank as either the
1941, 1942, or 1943 pattern T-34/76 – each with their distinctive
