Even if we ignore air power, the AT weapons a company of modern troops has at their disposal makes mincemeat of them. ATGMs like TOW's and Dragons, the fucking 40mm grenade launcher with HESH would kill several crew on impact, the Bradley has an auto cannon capable of shredding a T-34 to bits, not to mention shoulder fired launchers like the AT-4 or even the LAW. On a regimental and brigade level you start to get into artillery and your own tank units attatched to your mechanized forces. Plus as you mentioned even T-34-85's with HEAT rounds would have no way through an Abrams.Anyone who believe that a T-34 tank is able to stand up to modern arms is an idiot. Period. They would be destroyed by a lesser numbers of M1a1 Abrams, even the older models.
The newest models of t-34 are from 1944! Their cannons wouldn't be able to penetrate armour of an M1a1 abrams.
Also, if there was a separatist movement as described in the book with 1000 of tanks, they would sent in the airforce to bomb the shit out of them. A-10 would turn them into scrap metal.
Also, no sane army would send in a division of f******* gangbangers!
Remember, this guy as a master in history! He should know better!
EDIT: In the meantime while I'm digging into Victoria and to prevent a double post, I will leave you with his training manual and fanfiction about the K.u.K Marines.
I'm serious. They're called that.
