NOTES
1Data for T-34 production for 1941 (3014) and 50% of 1942 (12553) represents a rough estimate of the number of vehicles conforming to this configuration.
2Only command vehicles had radios. Later production had the new 9R radios.
3With/without radio equipment.
4Data is for the cast turret introduced early in 1941. Welded turrets of this period probably had the same armor specifications as the original T-34-76 Model 1940.
