Where did the Greek Cypriot T-34-85's come from?
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.

At least one that I know of, but I don't know the location. It must have been repainted at some point, for I have seen pictures of it both in the three-color old CNG standard scheme and plain dark green.

That tank has a really interesting wheel on the second axle, it looks like strengthening webs have been welded on?

Yes, and it appears to have been a relatively common modification very late in their service lives.

Do you have a photo in detail of this kind of wheel modification?

Thank you very much, that's great, I'd never seen those before, so it's another piece in the T34 jigsaw puzzle for me Smile

There is some period footage, plus a view of a monument flanked by a T-34-85 and a M-H Mk IVF in this video:
