Perhaps the most significant tank design of the war, the T-34 incorporated the best features of armor technology into a single package that proved nearly impervious when it appeared on the battlefield in 1941. Although only 1200 were available when the Germans invaded in 1941, the sloped armor, powerful high-velocity cannon, and fast reliable suspension of the T-34 did much to regain ground during the Soviet counteroffensive. It remained the main battle tank of the Red Army until replaced in early 1944 by the T-34/85.

The T-34/85 represented a significant advance, with greater armor and a more-powerful gun based on the Soviet 85mm anti-aircraft cannon. The T-34/85 was built in response to the Panther tank (itself built in response to the T-34/76), and proved capable against both Panther and Tiger tanks. A better model, the T-44, was to replace the aging T-34/85 in 1944, but its many design flaws could not be worked out, and the T-34/85 remained in service throughout the war. In all, over 40,000 T-34 medium tanks were built between 1940 and 1945.
