Synopsis

Part of the documentary series examining the capabilities of the different types of tanks used by the Allied and German armies in the Second World War. This volume looks at the Soviet T34 tank, perhaps the best all-round armoured fighting vehicle of the entire war. Its existence was unknown to the Germans when they invaded the USSR in 1941, and it proved itself as more than a match for the best German tanks in the bloody fighting that followed. By the end of the war, over 40,000 T34s had been built. Incudes expert analysis, rare archive footage, and computer graphic simulations to explore the T34's capabilities.
