Recoil of the main cannon(100mm) firing would be too high and thus damage the turret. That is whats meant buy it.

(sorry if it sounds like I am echoing what you basically just said)

They should've had enlarged the turret more to compensate for that.

Actually they still liked this variant even when the T-44 existed and they did enlarged the turret before but the gun is still too powerful but the development continued anyway so they replaced the gun with the 100mm LB-1 and it became favorable but the T-54 was already introduced.

The German Tiger had an 88MM gun and was unable to move at full speed while firing because it would damage the turret. T-34s are smaller and a 100MM gun is too much for its turret to handle.

Description

An experimental T-34 fitted with a 100mm gun.
I've read some comments that said the reason why they didn't adopt this gun was because it would damage the turret ring and the top of the turret, I don't know the real reason, however that seemed like a possible theory.
