About the T-34: Rushed into the battlefield in the Eastern Front in 1941, the T-34 quickly became a force to be reckoned with, to the consternation of German soldiers who encountered it for the first time. The T-34 incorporated revolutionary sloped armor design, which effectively doubled the thickness of its frontal armor without the added weight. The combination of light-weight and a relatively powerful engine made the T-34 fast and maneuverable, unlike the heavier German Tiger tanks. Best of all, Soviet industry were able to produced large quantities of the T-34; by the end of 1945, some 57,000 T-34s of all variants rolled out of Soviet production lines. Although the T-34's 76.2 mm main gun lack the same penetrating power and range as the guns mounted on heavier German tanks, the T-34's numeric superiority allows Soviet commanders to get in close to German tank formations in battle, where the T-34s can pick out and destroy heavier German tanks at point-blank range.
