A squadron of Russian T-34 tanks makes it way down a snowy
road somewhere on the Eastern Front. German General von
Runstedt called the T-34 the "best tank in the world." It had a
more powerful main gun than German tanks (85mm), a higher top
speed (32 versus 25 mph), and superior sloped armor and better
welded construction. Undated photo, from the
Webmaster's collection.
