    Artitec 1870009 Highlights:

    Model: Artitec's 1870009 1/87 scale T34 - 76mm Gun Soviet Army is a resin kit and is unpainted.

    Prototype: The T-34/76 is typically regarding by military historians as the best tank of the Second World War. When introduced in 1940 there was no other tank like it and it came as a particularly nasty shock to the tanks of the Wehrmacht during the initial months of Operation Barbarossa. The T-34’s 76.2 mm F-34 gun could penetrate 92 mm of armor at a range of 500 m and its hull and turret armor ranged from 40 to 60 mm in thickness. The hull and turret’s sloped shapes gave the T-34 additional protection. The T-34’s main strength was that it was much simpler and easier to produce than its German rivals and its price tag was relatively low. During the war 35,119 T-34/76s were produced – just less than the total number of German Panzer III, IV, and Panther tanks combined! The T-34’s simplicity came at a price however; its optical sights were inferior to those of the Germans and only commander’s units were equipped with radios. The lack of effective communication and poor targeting at long-range resulted in en masse attacks strategies frequently resulting in high losses – roughly 80% of all T-34 types produced during the war were destroyed. Nevertheless, sheer Soviet numbers, particularly the massive number of T-34s, in the end overwhelmed the armored forces of the Wehrmacht.
