Some folks might find this interesting as another option for a T-34-85 turret lying around in a spares box.

T-34 hull with a T-62 turret, supposedly in Bulgarian.
Note the turret ring extensions.

From Tank Encyclopedia:

Quote
There were some T-34 tanks that were modified to take a T-62 turret circa 1980 (believed to be in Bulgaria). They had the turret rings and hulls modified to fit the larger turret, and were used as bunkers near the Turkish/Greek borders. Despite reports that they could reportedly still drive, it seems to be the case that they were just immobile bunkers. They also reportedly remained in service at least 1996.




That said, here's what it may look like if done as an actual tank:

Just messing around with a concept for YSI's benefit - Tamiya hull, Monogram turret.

Shows how you'd probably need a spacer 'box' between the hull and turret so the turret overhang would clear the engine cover hump.

That looks interesting.  :smiley:

One wonders how the opposite would look. A T-34/85 turret on a Sherman hull?
