Description Extended Information
Easy Model EM36270 Russian T-34/85 Medium Tank -"#36", Eastern Front, 1944 (1:72 Scale) "By powerful artillery fire, air strikes, and a wave of attacking tanks, we're supposed to swiftly crush the enemy."
- Marshal Georgi K. Zhukov

After the Battle of Kursk in the summer of 1943, panic began to spread in the ranks of Soviet tank units. They had met the German Panther for the first time on the field of battle, and the mighty Tiger I was being encountered in increasing numbers. The Soviets desperately needed a tank with a 'longer arm' so-to-speak, and the solution offered up by a crash development program was a T-34 with a larger turret and a larger gun. This new tank was known as the T-34/85, which featured an 85mm anti-tank gun (derived from an anti-aircraft gun of the same caliber) mounted in a larger three-man turret. This more powerful tank entered service from March 1944 onwards and it was an immediate 'hit' since it could now stand toe-to-toe with the more powerful tanks being fielded by the Wehrmacht.

Pictured here is a 1:72 scale Russian T-34/85 medium tank that saw action on the Eastern Front during 1944. Now in stock!
