In 1944, a courageous group of Russian soldiers managed to escape from German captivity in a half-destroyed legendary T-34 tank. Those were the times of unforgettable bravery, fierce fighting, unbreakable love, and legendary miracles.
In the movie several tanks were filmed, including the real T-34 which was taken down during WWII. To prepare for the film, the tank was restored, including repair of the engine which was brought up to combat status. Also, the 1941 wintertime camouflage was recreated (nicknamed the "winter forest").
The first scene in the concentration camp SIII in Ohrdruf, Thuringia takes place in the Summer of 1944. The camp was opened 6th November 1944.
The closing credits say "Dedicated to the tank heroes of the great fatherland war, the fallen and unknown, the ones killed in the fight and those who returned home".
