Hah, Panzerfaust can easily destroy t-34. maybe not from the front, the sides, though. btw if i can see, there's one destroyed tank already. Finnish hiding in the back of the tower?

Glad you like it.

These antitank weapons came available for Finnish troops in the last minute, and you're partly correct. Against the frontal (and sloped) armour of T34/85, Panzerfaust was pretty useless (as I've read from several accounts). Same goes for ISU-152 and IS-tanks that the Finns faced in the summer 1944. However armour is slightly weaker on the sides and the rear, where an experienced soldier would like to score a hit. Or you just sit tight and let it go. Luckily there were also other (better) AT weapons available.
