The Russian T Tanks are a series of armored fighting vehicles that have been in use by the Russian Army since the late 1940s. The original T-44 tank was developed in response to the German Tiger I and Panther tanks. The latest version of the tank, the T-14 Armata, is currently in development.

The T-34 tank was developed in the early 1940s. It was designed as an all-around tank that could be used for both offensive and defensive purposes. The T-34 tank was mass-produced starting in 1941 and continued to be used by the Russian Army until the late 1940s.

The T-34 tank is considered to be one of the most successful tanks of all time. It was highly maneuverable and had a powerful engine that allowed it to travel at speeds of up to 55 kilometers per hour. The tank was also armed with a powerful 75mm gun that could penetrate the armor of most enemy tanks.

The T-34 tank saw extensive use during World War II. It was used by the Russian Army in both offensive and defensive operations.

The T-34 tank continued to be used by the Russian Army after World War II. It saw action in several wars and conflicts, including the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and the Soviet-Afghan War. The tank was eventually phased out of service in the late 1980s.

The T-34/85 tank was developed in 1944 to replace the aging T-34 tanks that were in use by the Russian Army. The T-34/85 tank featured a new turret with an 85mm gun, as well as a number of other improvements over the older T-34 tanks.

The first T-34/85 tanks were delivered to the Russian Army in 1985, and they saw action in the Soviet war in Afghanistan. The T-34/85 tank continued to be used by the Russian Army until the early 2000s, when it was replaced by the T-90 tank.

It has a crew of four and is powered by a diesel engine. It has a top speed of 55km/h and can travel up to 460km on one tank of fuel.

The T-55 tank was first developed in the early 1950s as a response to the United States M48 Patton tank. The T-55 is a medium tank armed with a 100mm cannon and four crew members.

The T-55 has been modified over the years, and the most recent version is the T-55AMM. This version of the tank has an improved armor protection system and is armed with a 125mm cannon. The T-55AMM is also equipped with an active protection system that can detect and destroy incoming missiles.

The T-55 has seen action in many wars and conflicts, including the Vietnam War, the Gulf War, and the War in Afghanistan. The tank has also been exported to many countries, including Syria, Iraq, and North Korea.
