Tanks were often employed in the group of forces of forward detachments, which were sent forward to seize vital objectives or escape routes along the enemy's line of withdrawal.
Tank armies were to be reserved for use along the main direction as, "echelons for the development of the success".
Tank armies and separate tank corps were used for two main roles: firstly, to hold prepared defensive zones either in co-operation with, or independent of, combined arms armies, and secondly, for inserting powerful counter-thrusts.

It was still too lightly armoured to withstand anti-tank or tank gun fire but twin Cadillac engines gave it a maximum cross-country speed of around 40 KPH which enabled it to out manoeuvre almost all German tanks, and it was expecially effective in support of infantry against enemy troops lacking anti-tank weapons.
The enemy tanks have two favourite strategies: they sneak up to you, let off a sly shot and run away, or perch on top of a hill and catch you unawares as you roll past.

German tanks had a less efficient arrangement, with the engine in the rear and the drive in the forward area.

When first built, it was the tank with the best balance of firepower, mobility, and protection in existence.
It was faster, had better armament (50 mm was the predominant calibre of German tanks guns) and better armour protection, due to the technical innovation of sloped armour.
The other key factor diminishing the initial impact of T-34s on the battlefield was the poor state of tank tactics and crew training, a hangover from Stalin's purges of the Soviet officer corps in the late 1930s.

While other tanks (much later in the war) provided better protection, firepower or mobility, none had such an uniquely appropriate blend of the three mixed in with good reliability and cheap price per unit.
Common to many Soviet heavy tanks designs in the early part of the war is the lack of a heavier main gun than the medium tanks it served alongside.
The heavy armour of the tank was very well-shaped to deflect incoming rounds, and the profile relatively small when viewed from the front, making it harder to hit.

Although undeniably ugly compared to the sleek T-34, the KV series was an effective heavy tank that blended characteristic Soviet simplicity with equally characteristic Soviet fortitude and strength.
Beginning with a heavily modified KV-85, the Iosef Stalin series was to become the apex of heavy Russian tank technology.
The IS-3, with its pointed front hull, and "'inverted frying pan'" (or "soup bowl") turret, was the basis for practically all post-war Soviet tanks--then again, it could arguably be called the Soviet Union's first post-war tank, as its first public appearance was in the Victory Parade of September 1945 in Berlin.
