T-34-85
Hello again! Today I'm glad to present my new MOC - model of legendary russian tank T-34-85. Also, I finally mastered the rendering of LDD models with LDD2Pov-ray!
About this creation








First deployed in 1940, the T-34 was a Soviet medium tank which had a profound and permanent effect on the fields of tank tactics and design. It has often been described as the most effective, efficient, and influential design of World War II. At its introduction, the T-34 possessed the best balance of firepower, mobility, protection and ruggedness of any tank, although its initial battlefield effectiveness suffered from the unsatisfactory ergonomic layout of its crew compartment, scarcity of radios, and poor tactical employment. Its 76.2 mm (3 in) high-velocity gun was the best tank gun in the world at that time; its heavy, sloped hull armour was impenetrable by standard anti-tank weapons; and it was very agile. Though its armour and armament were surpassed later in the war, when the German Wehrmacht first encountered it in battle in 1941, German tank generals von Kleist and Guderian called it "the deadliest tank in the world."
The T-34 was the mainstay of Soviet armoured forces throughout World War II. The design and construction of the tank were continuously refined during the war to enhance effectiveness and decrease costs, allowing steadily greater numbers of T-34s to be fielded despite heavy losses. It was the most-produced tank of the war, and the second most-produced tank of all time, after its successor, the T-54/55 series. By the end of the war in 1945, the T-34 had replaced many light and heavy tanks in service. It accounted for the majority of Soviet tank production, and following the war it was widely exported. Its evolutionary development led directly to the T-54/55 series of tanks, built until 1981 and still operational as of 2013 and which itself led to the T-62, T-72 and T-90 tanks which, along with several Chinese tanks based on the T-55, form the backbone of many armies even today. In 1996, T-34 variants were still in service in at least 27 countries.

Amazing T-34! I don't think i've seen many T-34s with the tires on the back six road wheels. And the mesh on the side is also new, love to see that stuff. Great job!

You did a great job! I love the mesh frames and the anti-aircraft machine gun. Have they ever been used at the same time on the real T-34-85? Is the turret able to rotate with them? Do you have crew? Please, check out my T-34-85 and tell me what you think. Also, don't forget to add your MOC to some groups, more people will be able to see it.
