Academy - 1:35 Scale T-34/76 Factory No 183   #13505

In the late 1930s, Soviet forces engaged the Japanese around the Manchurian border and while the Japanese Ha-Go light tanks were technically no match for the Soviet BT and T-26 tanks, the poor construction of the Soviet armor along with gasoline-powered engines made them vulnerable to any ignition source. Soviet planners replaced the BT and T-26 with a better design that would become the T-34. The first iteration of the T-34 was the model 1940 armed with the L-11 76.2mm main gun and while the basic design was sound, the gun did not prove effective. Production was quickly shifted to the model 1941 which incorporated the F-34 76.2mm main gun as well as receiving additional armor plate thickness. While the T-34 still suffered from quality control problems with welding and materials during construction, the tank was mass-produced across several factories. One such factory had been relocated east to the Ural mountains to become Tank Factory 183 and the largest producer of the T-34.
