The robust T-34 suited the Red Army. It was simple to make, forgiving of poor maintenance and easy to repair—plus, there were many more rolling out of the factories to replace those that could not be repaired. The latest versions made it much easier for the commander to command while doing their other job as gunner.

The T-70 light tank used automobile engines and easily-manufactured components to create a tank that didn't need a heavy-machinery factory to build. Despite its small size and cheap price and its 45mm gun is starting to be outclassed by the latest German tanks. Despite this the heroes that have survived continue to prove that sometimes skill and a strong will can overcome  any shortcomings of a tank.

While the KV-1s was the standard equipment for guards breakthrough heavy tank regiments, some repaired earlier model KV-1 tanks arrived as replacements during the Stalingrad battles.

The KV-1s combined the benefits of heavy armour and a big gun with greater speed than any German tank. Depending on the opposition, they could either just plough through the enemy defences, or manoeuvre to seek a weak spot.

The Red Army developed flame-tanks before the war to assist their infantry to overrun and destroy enemy positions. The KV-8 was the latest and toughest in this long lineage. It mounted an ATO-41 flame-thrower in the turret in place of the machine-gun, with a smaller 45mm gun replacing the 76mm gun to make room for it.

The Red Army was a world leader in the field of rocketry. They used truck-mounted salvo rocket launchers against the Germans right from the start of the war. These saturated a large area with explosives, quickly pinning down the enemy and causing widespread casualties.

In January 1943 work began to mount the 85mm gun on the hull of the SU-122. The project was started in response to the appearance of the Tiger 1E on the Russian front. After several prototypes were developed the version mounting the D-5S 85mm gun was adopted and pressed into production. In combat the SU-85 proved very effective able to take on the heaviest of German tanks from long ranges. The SU-85 first found service with SU-122 crews who had lost their vehicles in ferocious combat.
