Text in original Preserved Tanks In USA publication:


This is a model 1944 with 'angle-jointed' turret. It was used for a time in making training films and for this purpose holes were cut in the superstructure. These have since been patched up. It was transferred from Fort Belvoir, Virginia, in August 1976 and is now missing most external fittings, including both exhausts. Its engine was used in the restoration of the collection’s other T-34-85 ({UID1178}). It was moved by transporter from Fort Knox to Fort Benning on 5 November 2010.
