Armor of Russia. Movies 3-4

The end of the 30s of the twentieth century. The world was inevitably approaching a great war. According to the results of the Spanish and then Finnish wars, it became clear that the Soviet Tanks need improvement.
Three cars claimed the role of a new heavy tank — the double-towed QMS and the T-100, and the single-towed HF. The choice was not easy. As a result, the KV-1 tank was put into service, and then another version of this vehicle with a more powerful weapon, the KV-2.

In the meantime, a new medium tank was being developed. This tank was destined to enter history as one of the best in the world. This is about T-34. The computer graphics used in the film will make it possible to better understand what the power of the engineering solutions used in the tank is.
With the beginning of the Great Patriotic War, new light tanks entered the Red Army, first T-60 and then T-70. Their appearance allowed to quickly equip armored troops with combat vehicles.

By the middle of 1942, the factories evacuated inland had a production of T-34 and KV tanks. This gave rise to the creation of large tank formations, such as tank armies.

A radical change in the war was achieved in the battles of Kursk. In addition to the tanks, another type of armored armament was used in this battle - self-propelled artillery mounts. They were created on the basis of tanks, but compared with the progenitors of self-propelled guns had a larger caliber guns.

At the end of 1943, a modification of the T-34 tank with a more powerful weapon (T-34-85) was put into service, and heavy KVs were developed in the new family of heavy IS tanks - “Joseph Stalin”.

In the fourth film, Soviet tanks are compared with the best examples of German tanks "Tiger" and "Panther".
