The T-34 is a medium tank used mainly in the Soviet Union and members of the former Warsaw Pact during the Cold War. The T-34/85 is equipped with an 85mm tank gun in a large three-person turret, and generally the type equipped with the S-53 tank gun is classified as the 1944 type. Compared to the 1943 type, the 1944 type has a simplified design of the base of the main gun due to miniaturization of the retreat mechanism; the antenna is also installed in front of the cupola due to the relocation of the radio, and the ventilator above the turret features two units to improve the exhaust capacity. The 1944 model was mainly produced at the 183rd Factory, and in June of 1944, production started at the 174th Factory in Omsk, southern Russia.

This kit from Rye Field Models includes photo-etched parts and decals for four versions.
