In this action Guards Lieutenant Os’kin’s T-34/85, from the 53rd Guards Tank Brigade, knocked out three Tiger IIs by hitting their side armour from an ambush position. T-34 Engine The Kharkov V-2-34 engine is mounted in the back of the T-34’s hull with the transmission to the rear and cooling radiators on either side. 9bhp per ton. 84 litres/km). The top of the engine can be accessed from an armoured inspection hatch in the middle of the rear hull deck.

He recalled: In essence, until we got the 85mm gun we had to run from Tigers like rabbits, and look for an opportunity to turn back and get at their flanks. It was difficult. If you saw a Tiger 800–1,000 metres away and it started ‘crossing’ you, while it moved its gun horizontally you could stay in your tank, but once it started moving it vertically you’d better jump out, or you could get burned! It never happened to me, but other guys baled out. But when the T-34/85 entered service, we could stand up against enemy tanks one on one.
