Comparing: T20 vs. T-44-122 vs. T-34-1
The first in a series of 1942–1943 U.S. medium tank designs intended as replacements for the M4 Sherman. The first prototype was produced in May 1943, and trials went on until 1944. The vehicle was not approved for mass production, but subsequent prototypes, the T22 and T23, were created on the basis of this development. They, in turn, served as precursors of the T25 and T26. Eventually, the M26 Pershing emerged on their basis and was adopted for service.
Development of the vehicle started in 1943. The prototype was built by the end of the year and underwent trials in January 1944. In February 1944, the tank was re-equipped with a 122-mm gun and sent again for trials. Compared to the production vehicle, the 1943 prototype featured a different hull shape, turret, engine, and armor layout.
In 1954 the Chinese government considered the possibility of launching production of the T-34-85 in China. At the same time, Chinese engineers proposed an alternative project: the T-34-1. While based on the T-34-85, the T-34-1's transmission compartment and suspension were to be rearranged, reducing overall weight and giving a lower hull. In 1954, several designs of the vehicle, with varying turrets and armament, were developed. However, a prototype was never built.
