During World War 2 the combatants produced countless types of tank, military transport, self-propelled guns and other specialised military transport for use against the enemy. Some of these types were successful; others less so. But all played a role in the unfolding drama of the war. During the invasion of Russia, the Germans soon had to battle with Russia's outstanding new T-34 medium tanks and the excellent KV-1 heavy tank, both of which had better armour and armament than the Panzer III and Panzer IV. The Germans urgently initiated the design of an entirely new medium/heavy tank - Project VK3002.
