Performance in combat is down to plenty of factors beyond just the tank. Crew quality and tactical doctrine also contribute a lot. Also, UN did not really get a clear edge in armour until the Pershing arrived.

Also about T-34 series being for winning by steel wave's not just about numbers. T-34 is meant for mangling the operational and strategic rear by speed and mobile encirclements. It isn't like ocean waves smashing on cliffs. More like bypassing the strongest defences, leave them to die on the vine while all around vast swathes of territory fall into Soviet control.
