I must start off this post expressing my heartfelt gratitude to Nicholas for the generosity. For the first time in my life I now owned a RC tank and first time on my blog I post about RC model tank. Because of the arrival of this new toy, I started watching a lot of WWII documentaries, especially on WWII tanks. T-34 medium tank might not be the most fearsome tank during WII or perhaps received as much propaganda as the Germany Tiger and Panzer tanks. However, the shocking numbers of such tank produced had significantly contribution to Red Army, turning the tide of war just before the gate of Moscow.
Although T-34 is not recognized for its craftsmanship, this rugged tank can be produced in shear number. So huge in numbers that T-34 tanks were able to overwhelm the Germany tanks to the extent that they overrun defenses and rammed straight onto enemy tanks to immobilized them. So much so they created shock waves to the enemies and sent them on the run. T-34's 45mm armor plate gave considerable good protection and the sloping design of the frontal armor helps to deflect projectiles.
For medium tank, T-34 is highly mobile and versatile for modification or upgrade. Its wide track prevents the tank from getting stuck at muddy or snow terrains and this added advantages to the T-34 mobility in comparison with other tanks. T-34 is also high reliable meaning less breakdown and easy to maintain. Its main firepower is the remarkable 76mm turret.
Dramatic tank versus tank combat is possible with this compact 1/35 scale RC Tank models by Tamiya. Sound effects coincide with the precisely controlled tank movement. Together with engine sounds and moving turret provide and exciting experience.
