A modernized conversion of the famous Soviet medium tank T-34.
As one of the greatest tanks with over 80,000 units produced, T-34 had served in many armies.
Even nowadays -- 76 years after its introduction -- there are still many T-34s in service for many third world countries.
It's not only a tank, but a symbol of the war.
As a medium tank back to the WWII era, it could be considered as a light tank nowadays.
The reasons for why it's a successful tank are -- it's cheap, easy to build, light and reliable.
In the conversion includes:
Main Armament: (Fictional) M-85MTM II 85mm smoothbore gun with aim-assist system (with 36 rounds of various types of ammo, includes 12 rounds of APFSDS, 10 rounds of HEAT and 14 rounds of pre-rifled HE), reloading with an autoloader.
Secondary Armament: 2x SGMT (or M219 for same role) 7.62mm machine gun (with 3000 rounds of ammo, 1 mounted as anti-personnel and 1 mounted as c-axial, not shown), 1x Optional DShKM (or M2HB for same role) 12.7mm machine gun (with 300 rounds of ammo, not shown)
Armour: Steel or Composites Material (in some parts), with nuclear hazard protection system and KONKAKT-1 explosive reactive armor system. 3 different alternative turret designs for different price and different quality: (1) Ordnance steel + sandbar + Kevlar, (2) Ordnance steel + fiberglass + Kevlar, (3) Ordnance Steel + Tungsten Alloy + Kevlar. These turrets have different weight (± 2t).
Engine: Modified V-12 diesel engine, 18-lliter 12 cylinder with electronic ignition system, multi-point electronic fuel injection system and sequential twin turbocharger, maximum 880 hp & 2650 N·m (equivalent modernized version to V-2-SN prototype engine). Maximum range increased from 298km to 384km (768km with all the exterior fuel cans, 1,536km with fueling trailer)
Misc.: New integrated fire control system, night vision system, ballistic calculator, radiation protection system etc. New Periscopes and radio. Suspension changed from Christie's track system to torsion beam to increase the structual strength, with some of parts replaced by parts from T-54 / T-55 (e.g. the road wheels) for convenience.
Performance: maximum road speed—96 km/h, offroad speed—32km/h with the combat weight of 37 tonnes (structural enhanced).
Impact depth for ammo:
