They were first assigned a T-34/85, a tank that had been produced in 1943. Despite his protests that the tank was outdated and likely to be destroyed, Morozov knew he'd be overruled by the higher ups. They were then assigned to the regiment of Major Kliment Todorsky, and joined a drive on Paderborn.
They survived the drive, and, against all odds, the whole tank crew grew rather fond of their old tank. As March gave way to April, Paderborn was still in American hands. Morozov and his crew were once again part of a drive on the town, under the command of Captain Lezkov. After a kilometer and a half, a bazooka round hit the engine compartment, crippling the tank. The crew evacuated safely, and there were no further attacks.
When the time came for a new tank, Morozov flatly refused to be assigned another T-34. After some wrangling, Morozov insured his crew were given a T-54. They then joined their new regiment, commanded by Major Genrikh Zhuk, in Dassel.
