T-34/76 No.112 Factory "Krasnoe Sormovo" Late Production
By the end of WWII, more than 57,000 T-34 tanks had been built by the Soviet Union, of which 34,870 were the original version mounting a 76mm gun. Initially, the leading T-34 producer was factory No. 183 in Kharkov. This production facility was then followed by Factory No. 122, also known as “Krasnoye Sormovo”, situated in the city of Gorky. Named after Andrei Zhdanov, the factory was originally a shipbuilding facility. T-34/76 tanks produced at this factory had a number of distinguishing features such as notched glacis-hull side joints and a round access hatch on the rear plate.
