The T-34-85, aside from the enlarged turret ring for the new turret, used the same T-34 hull design. Armor was still about 45 mm thick, sloped at 60 degrees for a 90 mm effective thickness. The Christie suspension was retained, as well as the diesel engine. However, the biggest difference in...read more
