Soviet T-34 Tank Company( SUAB15)

Soviet T-34 Tank Company (SUAB15)
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, making the individual tanks faster, and the formations more flexible.

The T-34 was the most-produced tank of the Second World War, serving from the German invasion in 1941 to the end in Berlin in 1945. In 1943, the latest models had an improved hexagonal turret with twin 'Mickey Mouse ear' hatches, often with a cupola for the commander. These improvements made it easier for the commander to coordinate with the driver and other tanks in combat.

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.

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 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, it still packed a useful 45mm gun, nearly the match of the 50mm gun in the German Panzer III medium tank. Until T-34 production ramped up toward the end of 1943, two companies of T-70 light tanks replaced one company of T-34 medium tanks in the second battalion of most tank brigades. Nearly half of the tanks in a tank brigade were light tanks like the T-70. Experience commanders learned to exploits their tank's speed and small size to stay alive and gain the enemy's flanks to attack their vulnerable points. Soviet T-34 Tank Company( SUAB15)

The BA-64 replaced the BA-10 as numbers of the older model fell through attrition. The small, cheap BA-64 used a GAZ jeep chassis to keep costs down. Despite this, it was still an effective scouting vehicle, leading many advances until the end of the war.

The Red Army's standard artillery piece was the 76mm ZIS-3 field gun. It out-ranged German artillery and delivered an effective shell against a wide range of targets. The light 76mm field gun was easy to manoeuvre into position, and could be rolled forward to engage the enemy over open sights for maximum effectiveness.
