Hi Matt/Eugen,

I've noticed during the Steel Division 2 trailer a pair of rear mounted fuel tanks on the rear portion of the hull. To my knowledge I'm not aware such an addition was done prior to the 60s which would be perfect for a new Wargame-era Title. :)

Can anyone confirm the drum pair was used on a war issued T-34/85?

From the 10th minute, it is told about the T-34-85, and there are footage of the military newsreel on which additional fuel tanks are visible.
But there are no tanks on the stern armored sheet.
By the way, it's possible that these are not tanks, but, for example, smoke bombs. But they should not exist in the military machines either.
