The T-34-85 heads for the Wargaming Office

Do you remember the amazing King Tiger tank that arrived at the Wargaming office last year?  Well, now it will be getting a friend – a T-34-85!

The T-34-85 is, of course, a Soviet medium tank, and was the first vehicle to really make use of sloping armour for deflecting shells.

These replica remote-controlled tanks are created at 1/6th of the original size by Mark 1 Tanks in the UK.  They are custom-made to order, and we have some pictures of the Wargaming T-34-85 being built!

Take a look at the pictures below to see the construction in process.  Click on the thumbnails to see the full image!
