T-34 m1941 # Ps. 231-1
Ps.231-1 photographed April 20th 1944 during smoke grenade testings. SA-kuva 148.973

This tank was captured in the year of 1943. At the time of it's capture and when in Finnish service the second and fourth wheels on both sides were of the all steel wheel -type. It also had the early type of tracks. See the wartime picture above.

It is the very first Finnish T-34 to receive the new Ps. -registration number. Restored to running condition.

These pictures are taken at the Parola Armour Museum in October 2008 during the re-painting of the tank into the original colour-scheme and markings. Please note that the colours are freshly painted and therefore a bit glossy. When dry the colours should be completely matt.

The following pictures are taken at the parade by the Finnish Armoured Brigade during the summer of 2006. The tank has been repainted for the filmings of the "Tali-Ihantala 1944" -movie. The colour-scheme is pretty much the original one.

The following pictures are taken at the parades by the Finnish Armoured Brigade during the summers of 2002, -03 and -04. The tank is usually stored at the Parola Armour Museum's storage area in Parola, Finland, and thus not displayed along with the other tanks that usually are displayed at the museum.
