First,on the T-34/85 did the side fuel tanks have fuel lines to feed to the engines or were they just for storage>

Second, did they all carry the two smaller tanks on the rear?

T34 questions.

April 9 2012, 5:19 AM 

Hi Jeff,

First question : no fuel lines, just for fuel storage.

Second question : no, not all tanks (on some tanks you see just the fittings or even just the electric wiring as on the pic bellow). Those are not fuel tanks but smoke dischargers.

Cheers,

Christophe

Correct

There was no "smooth" track of the type suggested in the photo. They are one or another 500mm track packed with mud. No such links survive and there is no record or factory drawing of any such track among the dozen or so types known to be used on the T-34.

"Flat" tracks

April 9 2012, 2:06 PM 

No. I think what you're seeing here is the normal "waffle" pattern track packed with dirt and clay.
As far as I've ever been able to tell no such "plain faced" links were ever produced for the T-34 and really they wouldn't have made a lot of sense anyway. The "waffle" pattern tracks were intended to improve traction. Making smooth faced tracks would kind'a go against that idea.

Too heavy and waste of material

April 9 2012, 7:08 PM 

Not only that, an "entire" link would be too heavy and a waste of precious material, made without lightening holes, etc.

Are those a bunch of tellermines in the back???

Fuel or smoke on rear

April 9 2012, 4:39 PM 

The rear cylinders could be smoke dischargers or fuel, it depends.
