The t-34 tank and ZSU-57 is still in use in some armies around the world today. But the question is are they any good on todays battle field or should they scrapped/museum piece???
My general view is the t-34 as a main battle tank is no longer an option but this tank with a few upgrades would be ideal as an infantry support tank, its gun would still be useful against light armoured vehicles and bunkers, this could be improved with some upgraded ammo, and day/night/all weather optic's.
As for the ZSU-57 i think its anti air capabilities are very limited, forces using them would only hope to to take out slow moving aircraft and helicopters if they were lucky. i think yet again this vehicle would be of use to infantry in the ground support role, attack light armoured vehicles and bunkers, with the same upgrades as mentioned on the t-34, the main advantage with this would be the range of the weapon.
I know being an ex infantryman that support at times can be sacre and any is welcomed on the battle field, would i be happy to have a t-34 taking out bunkers or a ZSU-57 providing fire support for me, hell yes!
