In mid-1944, what percentage of an attacking Soviet tank army be made up of T-34/85's?

Good question. I don't know the figures, but I would suspect that since the t34/85 was in production by early 44 that it had largely replaced the 76mm version by mid year considering the rate at which the red army lost tanks.

According to Steven Zaloga, "By the time of Operation "Bagration", the Soviet offensive against Army Group Centre in Byelorussia on 22 June 1944, most of the Soviet tank corps had been at least partially re-equipped with the T-34/85, and many units had been almost completely re-equipped."

Most of the photographic evidence suggest large numbers of T-34-85 tanks, but a minority of T-34-76s remained in service. I think I have spotted one T-34-76 tank in Berlin but I can't prove it.
