The T-34 was a Soviet medium tank produced from 1940 to 1958. Although its armour and armament were surpassed by later tanks of the era, it has been often credited as the most effective, efficient and influential design of World War II. First produced at the KhPZ factory in Kharkov (Kharkiv, Ukraine), it was the mainstay of Soviet armoured forces throughout World War II, and widely exported afterward. It was the most-produced tank of the war, and the second most-produced tank of all time, after its successor, the T-54/55 series. In 1996, T-34 variants were still in service in at least twenty-seven countries.
Weakest hull in it's tier compared to German and American counterpart. Probably best used as back line support or in wolf packs where it can keep from getting pinged as main target.
Use the 100mm D10T gun
While it can fight off VK 3001(H/P) a well equiped VK 3601 could prove to big a bite for the lightly armoured T-34-85.
