T-34/76 from Saumur

Model 1940 (German designation: T-34/76A) – This was a production model built in 1940, armed with a L-11 76.2 mm tank gun; it had a welded or cast two-man turret. Due to a shortage of new V-2 diesel engines, the initial production run from the Gorky factory was equipped with the BT tank’s MT-17 gasoline-powered engine and an inferior transmission and clutch (Zheltov 2001:40–42).
