What was the turret ring diameter for a T34/85 turret?
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Just a quick question I can't find in any of the references I have handy

Hi Bob! Hi Folks!

None of my referenced have the turret ring listed.

Sorry Bob.
Sgt, Scouts Out! Sad

Don't have any sources but I seem to recall this coming up before. 1600mm rings a bell.

Thanks that comes to about 63". A Sherman had a 69" turret ring.

Why does he ask that you wonder?

Well I was wandering around some other discussion groups I occasionally visit and ran across this
www.whatifmodelers.com...10810&st=0

Interesting concept, I thought. Would it work? Well a 17pdr was a very tight fit in the Sherman's 69" diameter turret and I realized none of the books I had contained that information.

So if it was a tight squeeze in a 69" turret diameter I doubt it would fit in a 63" turret


Thanks for the answer,
But 7.5 hours to get the answer? folks I think we're slipping Wink

Well if you had said so to begin with Confused , the tests done to mount a 17 pounder in the Australian Cruisers (both the twin 25 and eventually the 17 pounder) were done using a 64" turret ring. It must have been a tight fit, but it did work. Smile

That one had slipped my mind. While we're on the subject, and since I'm at work and not near most of my references what was the turret ring of the Churchill and the Ram?

I know the 17pdr would not work in the Churchill (That was the whole reason for Black Prince).

Chuchill - no idea
Ram - supposed to be the same as the M3, which I think I've seen stated to be 60"
