In World of Tanks, it is presented in several branches at once, and in this article we have collected all the modifications of the machine that exist in the game.
So you can not only learn more about the history of the T-34, but also choose a model to your liking, if you want to leave this famous tank in your garage.

One of the rarest variants of the thirty-four is the radiant T-34. It was equipped with an RSB-F radio set with a communication range of up to 120 km. The maximum range was reached during the day, under ideal meteorological conditions, in a parking lot with an antenna 10 meters long. The usual range of communication with the 10th antenna is 100 km.
In 1941, plant number 183 produced ten serial T-34 tanks with a ZIS-4 cannon. All of them participated in the fighting as part of the 21st tank brigade. In 1943, plant number 183 produced four T-34 tanks with a ZIS-4 cannon. Officially, the ZIS-4M index did not exist.
With the ZIS-4 gun, the T-34 has the highest armor penetration with a sub-caliber projectile among its "classmates", not counting the Chinese Type T-34, - 189 mm.
The ZIS-4 gun fires faster than it is reduced.
With a gun, the ZIS-4 deals the biggest damage per minute among the "classmates."
The first shielded T-34s appeared in July 1941. Then they placed 13-mm armor plates intended for BT tanks.
In 1942, they returned to the idea of enhanced armors. On June 9, 1943, an experimental batch of tanks with armors 10–16 mm thick was sent to the front.
The armors protected against cumulative shells of a caliber of 75 mm, and also reduced the effectiveness of armor-piercing shells.
T-34E appeared in the game as a reward for a thematic event in honor of the 75th anniversary of the battle on the Kursk Bulge.
The thickness of the armor in the game is 16 mm.
Armors save from cumulative shells, reduce the effectiveness of land mines, armor-piercing and sub-caliber ammunition.
There is no reliable information on the supply of T-34-76 tanks to the PRC.
At the Korean War Museum in Chinese Dandong, you can find the the T-34-76. Apparently, the plate under the tank says that it is a T-34-85.
T-34-76 can also purportedly be found in North Korea. One of the supposed vehicles even appeared in a propaganda film.
Unlike the T-34 of the Soviet branch, the 57-mm gun is only available after researching.
The Chinese tank is slightly inferior to the Soviet in camouflage and power density, weighs more, but surpasses it in chassis rotation speed.
Damage per minute and armor penetration in the Chinese clone are the same as in the Soviet machine.
The standard T-34-85 cannon - ZIS-S-53 - pierced the armor of the German Tiger tank from a distance of 1000 m. When firing from 1500 m, a dent was formed with a depth of 39 mm.
For the T-34-85 in 1944, they developed an 85-mm high-power N-3-457 gun with an initial projectile speed of 950 m / s. There was a variant with a conical bore with an initial velocity of the projectile 1150 m / s.
After the war, several countries at once - Egypt, Syria and Cuba - created their own versions of the T-34-85, armed with a 122-mm howitzer D-30. The tower was either removed or significantly redone.
The tank can take enemies below level thanks to the powerful 122-mm howitzer U-11.
Prior to Update 0.7.5, a 100 mm D10T gun could be installed.
The top 85-mm D-5T-85BM gun is distinguished by high armor penetration - 194 mm (with a sub-caliber projectile).
In the spring of 1944, two samples of the modernized T-34-85M tank were built at factory No. 183.
The body armor was significantly strengthened: the thickness of the frontal sheet was 75 mm, the hatch of the driver-mechanic was 100 mm, the armored guards of the exchange machine gun were 90 mm.
The tanks differed in the location of the fuel tanks: on one of the samples they were removed from the fighting compartment and moved to the stern, in which the configuration was changed.
T-34-85M is characterized by enhanced forehead armor, capable of withstanding the fire of guns of the IV level and many guns of the V level.
T-34-85M is perfect for battles in the fortified areas of the middle division (up to level VI). The car is good at farming loans and brings experience, given the short duration of the battles.
After the update 1.0.0, the machine appeared in the in-game store.
This is a tank from the popular Polish TV series 'Four Tankers and a Dog'.
The role of the tank was “played” by several different vehicles. One of them with the number 102 and the inscription Rudy is stored in the Museum of Motorization and Technology near Warsaw, the other in the Museum of Armored Equipment in Poznan.
In the story of Y. Pshimanovsky, the tank commander was not the Pole Olgerd Yarosh, but the Soviet officer Vasily Semen.
In the Polish T-34-85, the crew was reduced to four people. The machine gun was controlled remotely.
The tank appeared on sale in update 0.9.7 as part of the Berlin Three campaign, dedicated to the 70th anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War.
Only this tank has a dog in the game.
This is the only tank in the game for which a change of nations is available: it can be either Polish or Soviet.
By the mid-1950s, China had mastered the overhaul of T-34-85 tanks at plant 674. Perhaps the enterprise could even produce hulls and towers.
According to one version, the name Type 58 came from the modernization package of the Chinese T-34-85, which provides, in particular, the installation of a heavy machine gun with an anti-aircraft sight.
During the war in North Korea, the T-34-85 fought on equal terms with the American M4AZE8 and M24 Chaffee.
The single damage of the Chinese tank’s guns is less than that of the Soviet T-34-85, but the rate of fire is higher.
Type 58 has more strength points: 750 versus 720 for the T-34-85.
The tank appeared in the game with update 0.8.3.
The development of an improved design of the T-34-1 tank was carried out by specialists of the People's Liberation Army of China.
This became possible after the development of overhaul of T-34-85 at the military plant No. 674.
Information about this tank has remained extremely scarce.
It has one of the highest among all T-34 in the game indicators of strength - 1050 points. The T-34-2 and T-34-3 tanks do not belong to the T-34 branch, in fact these are new vehicles.
The top gun 100 mm 44-100JT allows you to fight with heavy tanks above the level.
The forehead of the tower has a thickness of 170 mm and is capable of repelling projectiles of "classmates" and opponents below level.
Work on the Czechoslovak T-34/100 began in 1953, only the bow of the tower was redesigned according to the project.
The tank was never built in metal: the military was not satisfied with the power of the gun.
In the USSR, back in 1945, the T-34 was built with a 100 mm ZIS-100 gun.
It has the most powerful gun among all the T-34s in the game - 100 mm vz. 44S.
Cumulative shells penetrate 250 mm of armor, inflicting 250 points of damage per shot.
It has the largest number of strength points among all T-34s in the game - 1100.
