Tanks of World War II. I think everybody will be interesting to watch in anticipation of the holiday.
Tank BT-7, 35 th year. Child of the doctrine of Stalin’s war on enemy territory. It possessed great speed (later modified with the diesel V-2 to 86 km / h on wheels) could removed from the tracks to race on wheels in the rear of the enemy on the European u-se.
It was nicknamed “Flying Tank”, because for propaganda purposes, for the newsreels made long jumps over ditches and streams. Successfully fought for Khalkhin-stormed the Mannerheim Line in Finland, a 45-m finished the Japanese. Good, beautiful machine, a forerunner of Thirty.
T-34 is recognized by all as the best tank 2-nd World War, but the stress on the set of all qualities, including mass production, ie they are greatly outnumbered by the German T-III, but later in the battles with the Tigers and even with self-propelled guns were carrying a very heavy losses. Another referred to as “peasant tank”, because Even illiterate peasants (what basically amounted to the Red Army) were able to master the management and maintenance of the machine.
That T34-76, the former at the beginning of the war Deafblind-mute stalwart. Overview of the tank on reviews of the veterans was very inadequate, walkie our tanks are not equipped (commanders were put out from the hatch and waved flags). Powder gases at a shot fell into the tank. The Germans were amazed extremely austere cockpit of our swallows.
Light tank T-60. He made more of their opportunities in the battle for Moscow.
SU-85 self-propelled unit on the chassis of the T-34. Tank destroyer. Cheaper construction, rather than a tank.
Tankers jokingly called self-propelled guns, tanks, broken “, but the contribution to the victory of ACS made a huge difference.
Panzerkampfwagen III – is it mainly seen in the sight of our gunners in the first half of the war. A gasoline-powered, light up when hit well! Ugh, disgusting!
Artshturm StuG III – extremely dangerous bastard! The best German tank commander Michael Wittmann SS Hauptsturmfiihrer knocked on such a machine a few dozen of our tanks. And all this scum (we must pay tribute to his fighting skills) destroyed 138 Soviet, American and British tanks, 132 Soviet and American self-propelled artillery units.
