Maybe Saudis should invest in KV I or KV 85 tanks in this Houthi fight, the rear torrent mg may also come in handy.

This tank belongs in a museum not on the battlefield…

Jakke1899

Yes, what a pity! Any western army or historic museum would have loved to have this in their collection…

FlorianGeyer

A Russian museum would also have given this tank pride of place, I am sure.

Perfect for in kublinka. :)

I would prefer to see the Tank on display at Borodino, South of Moscow, where the French and the Germans clashed with Russian forces.

The T34-85 had a larger turret than the -76.
Making it a bit more user friendly. :)

And a larger main armament of course.

85mm packed a lot more punch, and at last a 3 man turret.
Germans used PZIV chassis for many things, including JagdPZIV tank hunter.
Guderian was not in favor of this one, because it hurt production and STuGIII still did the role well. But it looks cool ! :)

I don’t think so. Russia got a bunch of working T-34 from Laos a few weeks ago.

Have any of them got a WW2 pedigree ?

This Saudi T-34 has a long history. It was the last soviet tank damaged in the battle of Kursk on the 22/08/1943. It was repaired and made its way to Berlin where again it was damaged this time by a Panzertod. It was hauled off to a makeshift tank repair facility and next reappeared when Poland did a trade deal with Iraq in the mid 80’s. It was eventually retired by the Iraqis on its 60th birthday 02/02/2002 an placed on guard at the Military museum in Baghdad, from where it went missing about 10 years ago. Why the Hell could it not have been left in Peace, Rather than Pieces? LOL

Jakke1899

Interesting, do you happened to have a link with info about this tank?

FlorianGeyer

Fascinating, thank you. With a pedigree like that, the T34 would have been worth a fortune.

Vitex

Not any more!

FlorianGeyer

Sadly you are correct..

Xiones

How would a T-34/85, which was first produced in March 1944, see action in a battle in August of 1943?

Vitex

Almost heart-warming. :)

Dick Von Dast'Ard

Cost of the ATGM was probably higher than the value of the tank.

Dick Von Dast'Ard

What would be the best modern light tank in service today?

ksa zionist sand muppets and their completely inept mercs.

Zionism = EVIL

The Saudi scum must have run out of Americunt and Froggie Abrams and LeClec junk to bring out WW2 armor. What a waste of a Kornet though. It could have been taken out by a RPG.
