R-155 photographed in July 24-25th 1943 during tank obstacle testings. SA-kuva 132.732

This T-34 m1942 (with prior registration number R-155) had the quite unusual "laminate" turret. The tank is currently an empty hull, but it seems like all or most of the external bits & pieces are preserved. The tank has been used as a "Soviet" tank in a few films and have now "new" roadwheels and tracks.

The large hinges on the rear deck have been added some time between June 1943 and August 1947 (probably first after the war). The original three hinges were the usual small ones.

My pictures are taken in April 2007 at the Finnish Armour Museum's storage in Parola, Finland.

The first two pictures are taken by Mr. Jaakko Pihlaja at the same place after the turret has been lifted up on the hull.
