It was so long ago. Most of the memories I do not remember what heartily sorry, but I will try to give as much as possible.
In 1942-1943, the Red Army put an emphasis on restoration of losses from 1941. Production of T-34 increased rapidly, but its construction was introduced only to improve, which may have contributed to the acceleration of production. Soviet designers were aware of the need to improve some shortcomings of the structure.
However, such improvements would lead to increased time and cost of production. For this reason, could not be used.
In 1943, production of T-34 has increased to an average of 1,300 units per month. Kacapy had greater losses than the Germans because of the tactical level of preparation.
In response to the same number appearing on the field of battle tanks T-34 and increasing demand for greater firepower,
Germany began to produce a very large number of rapid-fire guns PaK 40 75 mm, both towed and self-propelled. The latter were built in 1943.
Since 1942 and in mid-1943 the Germans began massive production tanks
severe type of tiger
and average Pantera,
the appearance of which awakened the need to improve T-34 tank.
These revised editions have appeared worthy of notice in two forms:
more armored version of the 1943, which included a more capacious and durable container, and a modified tower
as well as the 1944 version of the new tower, the shape of the continuing work anti-armor/against air 85 mm ZIS.
The latter has significantly more firepower, compared to the previous works 76,2 mm F-34 and finally gave the T-34's offensive ability, which so badly needed Soviet army.
