We Lost a Track!

"On the losses of materiel
...
For the T-34, a characteristic loss is the destruction of tracks, drive wheels, and idlers. Out of 24 losses, 20 tanks were lost for these reasons. During our attacks, the enemy concentrated fire from several anti-tank guns on one tank and then moved fire to the next tank. There were two cases of partial penetrations of front armour, and those tanks went on to attack again after that.
...
Conclusions: T-34 tanks need strengthening of the tracks, idlers, and drive wheels to be equivalent in robustness to the front armour, since suspension damage in battle impedes further use of the tank, especially if there is a shortage of spare parts and tractors that can evacuate the tank."
