T-34-85 m1944 # Ps. 245-7
T-34-85 # Ps. 245-7

The Finnish forces captured nine T-34-85 tanks during the fighting in the summer of 1944. Only seven of them could be taken into service. This T-34-85 numbered Ps.245-7 is thus the very last of these seven tanks.

The tank is somewhat confusingly restored to a Soviet look-a-like condition. Round front fenders have been added but the tool-boxes are missing. Also spare tracks have been added to the bow - a feature never or very seldom seen on the early m1944 T-34-85s. Furthermore, the sign on the side of the tank states that this tank is a T-34 and that it has been captured in 1941...

These pictures are taken at the Hämeen Rykmentti garrison area in Lahti, Finland.
