T34/85 Battle Ready Tank – Pre painted
The T-34/85, the very symbol of Soviet military strength in the Second World War, had a large turret to house the more powerful 85mm ZiS gun. A supremely rugged and reliable tank, the T-34/85 had excellent off-road capability, especially in the marshland or snow of the Eastern Front, and was easy for the crew to operate and maintain.
The T-34/85’s great strength lay in its adaptation of the T-34/76tank design which preceded it. This ensured a far smoother and faster production line than would have been the case with a completely new design. Another major advantage of the relatively simple design is the sheer number of tanks the Soviet tank factories could produce – by the summer of 1944 the Soviet war machine could produce more T-34/85s in a month than the Germans had Panther tanks in the whole of the Eastern Front!
Aerials and any mounted machine guns are painted but left unattached to avoid breakages in transit.
Remember that these tanks are hand-painted and each one will be unique – as such you can expect minor variations to the published images.
