The T-34 (unofficial name) is an old, presumably abandoned tank found in the Rogers Salvage & Scrap Yard in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

Description

The T-34 is unable to be driven and just appears as a wrecked vehicle inside the scrap yard. It is simply an easter egg left in the game by game developers, and its name comes from its real life counterpart, the Soviet T-34 tank.

Design

The T-34's design looks exactly like its real-life counterpart, the Soviet T-34, and appears to be a T-34-85 variant (based on the caliber of the main gun and larger turret). 

The tank features sloped armor on all sides and a larger than normal turret to make room for the 85mm cannon.

  • Not much is known about the tank or the reason behind its presence in the game. It seems unlikely that a Soviet tank would be found rusting in an American scrapyard. However, it is possible that it is a discarded prop from a war movie, or perhaps a privately-owned vehicle sent to the scrap yard for refurbishment. Notably, the tank is fitted with its hull-mounted Degtyaryov DT machine gun, which is usually missing on museum tanks or those featured in video games.
  • The tank appears to simply be abandoned, as there is no evidence of shell penetration or other combat damage, and no apparent damage to the suspension.
