Red Army T-34 Tank
"On October 5th 1941, in the Kamenewo area, the Russians launched their first counter-attack mass using KV and
T34 tanks, stopping the 4th Panzer Division in its drive to capture Mtsensk. Although this engagement decisively
delayed the German advance towards Tula the German offensive against Moscow (operation "Taifun") was in full
swing. The German 4th Panzer Regiment reported: "Time and time again our tanks have been split right open by
frontal hits. The commander's cupola of the PzKpfw III and IV have been completely blown off, proof of that the armor
is inadequate and the attachment to the cupolas is faulty. It is also proof of the great accuracy and penetration of the
Russian T-34's 76,2 mm gun ... The former pace and offensive spirit (of the Panzer force) will evaporate and be
replaced by a feeling of inferiority since the crews know they can be knocked out by enemy tank while they are still a
great distance away.". Although in the same report were also reported the main weak points of the tank: "hits against
the rear drive-sprocket were successful, along with chance hits on the turret ring". "

Red Army T-34 tanks in their
panzer units.

the same time offers hundreds of drawings, which explain all there
