The T34/85 was the later, upgunned version of the revolutionary design used by the Russians from 1944. After the war it was exported to many countries where it was in use until the 1990s. It was extensively used in the Korean War by both North Korea and China, and later by Syria against Israel, as well as in many 'bush' wars. The vehicle is cast in two parts a hull with an integral textured base and the turret. The gun barrel, turret hatch and hull machine gun are separate, white metal pieces.
