T-34 Movie is outrageously over the top!

Recommended Posts

While building my projects, I watch movies in the background.

I ran across this amazingly awesome movie T-34., free if you have Amazon Prime.

If you're a WWII armor fan, you will really enjoy this... historical inaccuracies aside.

Here's a quote from The Daily Beast (full article is here.)

The new World War II tank thriller from Russian writer-director Aleksey Sidorov, T-34, is frenetic, loud and silly. "Fast & Furious with tanks," is how one producer described it.

It's also propaganda. The Russian Ministry of Culture ponied up part of the movie's budget, and once T-34 was done the Russian army reportedly screened it for the troops.

Emboldened by the film's success, the Kremlin has been scouring the planet for old tanks it can buy back, so that it can help to make more movies like T-34 without having to rely on expensive CGI.

I have not watched the movie you describe but don't totally disregard the stories about the T-34 tank. The Germans regarded it as the best tank of WWII. 

 

Another movie, that you can actually watch on uTube is "Tankers"

Also Russian made and at first glance seems to be pure propaganda. Until you look up the story of Zinoviy Kolobanov in the Battle Of Leningrad and the record of the KV-1 tank in general. Then the movie is no more far fetched than many Hollywierd "documentaries" and possibly more accurate than some of them.

The CGI tanks scenes in T-34 are actually pretty well done, and I'd rather watch some convincing CGI tanks than some unconvincingly modified real tanks pretending to be tanks that they very obviously aren't.

Looks like fun Doing spin outs and catching air in a 45 ton tank has to be a unique experience. It is interesting that they only shoot from a stationary position though. I think that US and some of the other allied tanks all are able to shoot while on the move. Also I am surprised on the use of two part ammo and what appears to be a slow rate of fire.

 

Still looks like fun though.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
