    The T-34, obsolete in June 1944 ? The T-34/85 had more armour frontally than a
    Tiger (counting the effect of slope), the firepower of a M4A3E8(76), and the mobility of a Cromwell ! And you call it obsolete ???

    The T-34/85 didn't have more armor than a Tiger. The front of a later M4 did, but I digess.

    The S-53 is not as good as the 76mm at range in AP performance. The T-34 in any variant didn't have the mobility of a Cromwell.
