The T34/85 was Russia's answer to the German Tiger tank. Tests on captured Tigers in 1943 showed that the T34's 76mm gun could not penetrate the frontal armour of the Tiger and could only penetrate the side armour at very close range.

Production of the 85mm version began in February 1944, initially modelled with the 85,, S-53 gun, this was soon replaced with the 85 mm ZiS-S-53.

Some 22,500 T-34/85s were built.
