  1. Answer is, too many. 🙂

    Electrical was used to do rough traverse and final gun laying was done by hand.

    I think that ringing sound is caused be traverse mechanisms clutch. Haven't had chance or need to examine it yet.

  2. I heard the T-34 had a problem with the electric motor used to rotate the turret. Something about it being prone to black outs and too much sparking, or something like that. Was it corrected in the T-34-74 and T-34-85 turrets?

  3. Would love to see some more internal operations including driving and longer video on the turret operations including gun elivation and depression.

  4. They never improved that it looks like. A lot of Russian tankers lost body parts to the fact that there was no turret floor that turned with the turret
