T-34/76 Mod. 1941, Leningrad 1942-43
MODEL IS MINT, ACRYLIC CASE IS DAMAGED
The Russian T-34 tank is credited with being one of the most effective and influential tank designs of WWII. Such was the versatility of the T-34 design that it was produced all the way through till 1958 in a couple of places outside the USSR! During the course of production it underwent numerous improvements. The T-34/76 Mod.1941 was a main-production variant armed with a 76.2mm F-34 gun, for which 77 rounds were carried. Its armor was heavier than that on earlier T-34s (up to 52mm at its thickest points), contributing to a total weight of 26.5 tons. The T-34/76 Mod.1941 was one type of armored vehicle that the Red Army used to defend the city of Leningrad in the Baltic during the destructive siege by German forces of Army Group North. This grim blockade was to grind on for 872 days from 8 September 1941 onwards.
