The T-34-85 is the standard medium tank in the Soviet Red Army, has medium armor and weaponry. Like the Stalin, the T-34-85s were produced in great numbers, but the mass production caused a lack to the structural integrity, making the tank much more vulnerable than the other tanks.
When the Germans invaded the Soviet Union in 1941, the last thing they expected was a tank that not only matched their finest armored beast, but also surpassed it in every way. Some German tanks at the end of the war might have outgunned the T-34, but for the bulk of the conflict it was the standard by which all medium tanks were judged.
- Pros: An inexpensive tank that can square off with anything the enemy forces can throw at it.
- Cons: The cheap resource price comes at the expense of one extra Army Point over enemy equivalents. It doesn’t sound like much, but it can add up if you’re cranking them out for a big armored assault.
- Bottom Line: At this price, you can afford to make them and say to hell with the extra Army Point.
