Russian T-34 Model 1940 for Barbarossa '41

This is the initial production version of the legendary T-34 medium tank, armed with the 76mm gun in a two-man turret (the commander also fulfilled the gunner's role). This is the tank that helped stop Hitler's Blitzkreig in its tracks (no pun intended) and forced the Germans to respond with better armed and armored tanks of their own.
