Ever heard of the Valley of the Moon? This is one of the most unique landscapes in Africa. Also known as Miradouro da Lua or Watchpoint, the landscape is slightly comparable to the moon surface, located 40km south of Luanda in Angola.

The T-34 would debut in late 1940, and is regarded as the most important tank of WW2. It weighs 26.5 tonnes, is 6.68m long and 2.45m tall. The T-34 was extremely important in turning around the German attack, as it was better than almost all German armour at the time. It would be used to encircle the Germans at Stalingrad. As the war progressed, the Germans would create tanks to counteract the T-34, and the Soviets in response would add things to the T-34’s and make them better. Between 1940 and 1958, 84,070 of thee T-34’s would be built (44,900 of these would be lost during WW2). The tanks service would not stop in WW2 though. It would be used by the North Koreans in the Korean war, fielded by the MPLA against UNITA (and the FNLA) in the Angolan Civil War, saw use in the Balkans throughout the 90’s, and even sees service today by not so developed countries. (Really sorry about how short this is, but I didn’t have computer access and not a lot of time). #cocweaponwednesday#ww2#wwii#tank#t34#russia#ussr#soviet#war#moscow#ukrain#kiev#kyiv#angola#yemen
