A project to increase the armour and firepower commenced to counter this problem, the project titled Heavy Tank T29. The HEATFS shell in question can penetrate 480 mm of armour. However, the new design features on the T-34 plus the heavier weight on the tank compared to its predecessors posed a problem to the Soviet industry due to insufficient toolings and machinery available in the majority of the Soviet manufacturing plants, thus defects in armour plates were present in the early models. If your vehicle can reliably penetrate 90mm (more if the vehicle is angled) of armour at medium to long-range, you should try to eliminate the T-34 at the longest possible range, where the L-11 gun will perform poorly. They are known for their powerful guns, excellent mobility and, in many cases, decent armour as well. I like to play with Japanese 75mm Gun Tanks like the Chi-Nu2, Chi-To, Chi-To Late and Chi-Ri2 and i use the Kou Shells. One more tank you must be aware of that most people forget about is the Type-62. Focusing on driving past enemy strong points was their strength, before the 85mm. This is the first non-premium model of the T-34 series. At 3.3 the T-34 1940 faces a lot of German and Japanese armour. But it won't penetrate anything in this BR. The heavier prototype was still just as mobile as the A-20, and further development into the design increased the frontal armour thickness to 45 mm thick and a newer 76.2 mm L-11 gun attached instead.

The drawback of the Object is its lack of gun depression and armour that even .50 cal machine guns can destroy it. Its designers used the Christie suspension with five large steel road wheels paired at each side and a large area of clearance between the second and third pairs. The tank had great sloping armour, a powerful engine, wide tracks, and a large gun. The Tiger II (H) 10.5cm heavy tank is also able to contest you better than the Tiger II (P) and (H) simply because of the gun and power behind it, but not to a dangerously high degree like the Leopards. Model 1940 (German designation: T-34/76A) - This was a production model built in 1940, armed with a L-11 76.2 mm tank gun; it had a welded or cast two-man turret.Due to a shortage of new V-2 diesel engines, the initial production run from the Gorky factory was equipped with the BT tank's MT-17 gasoline-powered engine and an inferior transmission and clutch (Zheltov 2001:40–42). The T-34-85 is a rank IV Soviet medium tank with a battle rating of 5.7 (AB/RB/SB). The L-11 76.2 mm gun was found to be insufficient in performance, so it was replaced by the newly designed F-34 gun, which was much better than its predecessors.
