Restock: T-34 Model 1943 “Fighting Girlfriend” Add-On Pack with Tank Driver Mariya Oktyabrskaya

T-34 Model 1943 "Fighting Girlfriend" Add-On Pack with Tank Driver Mariya Oktyabrskaya

This add-on pack was designed to accompany our T-34 Model 1943 kit.

A Heroine of the Soviet Union, Senior Sergeant Mariya Oktyabrskaya was one of the first women in history to command a tank in combat. After her husband was killed by the Nazis in 1941, Sgt. Oktyabrskaya donated her life savings to the Soviet state and requested command of a T-34 medium tank. Stalin personally granted her request, providing her with training and a new T-34. Sgt. Oktyabrskaya took her tank, named Fighting Girlfriend, into battle against the fascist invaders. Her bravery and crack tank skills earned her the respect of her male counterparts. After her death in March 1944, she was posthumously awarded Heroine of the Soviet Union for her bravery and dedication to the Soviet war effort.

This custom-printed Mariya Oktyabrskaya minifigure comes with a BrickWarriors Russian Tanker Helmet, a BrickArms PPSH submachine gun, a LEGO® Wrench, and a high quality sticker sheet featuring Mariya Oktyabrskaya’s slogan “Fighting Girlfriend” and other tank markings.
