Well, the pic didn't say, but it sure does look like a T-44 if you ask me, Listy!

It is T-44, although it looks a bit unusual:
- there is no splashboard on front, like on late models
- difference between roadwheels is bigger between 1st and 2nd, like on early models
- mudguards look flat (new ones look curved, like on T-55)

So there might be some reason why this model ended up in the museum

----

It is situated in Poklonnaya hill VOV Museum, in Moscow.

Here is another interesting vehicle from that museum.

As to the T-44, I would suggest the hull looks a bit T-54ish.

After the battle of Stalingrad soviets captured lot of working Pz III, so they made this vehicle from them.
Interesting that some of those vehicles found way to their former owners.

Well, they certainly all do, although on mud guards we can see this is earlier version of T-44.

Nice photo.

It had 4MG + flamethrower, so it would be difficult to determine sex

Correct!

The design combined serious cooling problems with a dangerous vulnerability due to its two steam boilers and large fuel reservoirs
