Had a PT-34 project in mind but I'm finding little info on. I would like to put a mine roller on a T-34/85 with Berlin invasion markings and bedspring armor on however I cannot locate any information documenting wether or not they were used. I would assume that they (the Russians) would have used them at some point on the road in but really would like some sort of proof since this will be a contest project. I intend to use the old Kirin mine roller kit on a Dragon T-34 with a full blown interior and really don't want to get "dinged" by a judge for being historiclly inaccurate.
definately in the initial attack such as Seelow. Once the Soviets broke through the initial German defenses, the German fell back so quickly that they really didn't have time to lay effective mine fields thus the Soviets really had no need for them at that point.

Awsome info guys, thanks for the help. Now that I think of it the T-34/76 makes more sence as an engineering vehicle. Does anyone know at what point the Russians decided to apply the bed spring armor? Was that something done earlier in the war or was it more exclusive to just units moving on Berlin?
