This was being developed in order to create a tank that would have better combat and technical characteristics than the T-34. The tank also had a new feature - transversal placement of the engine.

Some prototype vehicles were manufactured with various main armament versions (85mm, 100mm and 122mm guns). The vehicle fitted with a 85mm gun was adopted and put into production. In the 1960s the tanks were upgraded: some units and assemblies of the power pack, transmission and running gear were replaced by the units of the T-54 tank and AT-T prime mover. The upgraded tank was designated the T-44M.
