    Kolobanov's crew fought on the most powerful tank "KV" at that time .. This does not detract from the courage of the crew itself .. These are real Heroes .. And not the current ones, showy .. Leap from the bridge .. Or spit the farthest ...

      Kolobanov was worthy of the title Hero of the Union. He should be awarded the title of Hero of Russia by the President of Russia. This is a return of historical justice.
      The media should be connected to this. I think that if a vote is held, then those who know about the feat of G. Kolobanov will vote for awarding him the title of Hero of Russia.

        yes, who are these all? and what do they know?

        I understand that for you, apparently, it is easier to believe in the 352 of Hartmann’s victory ...

        already the third one believes in something, for example, I know that N of his victories is overstated, but at the same time it’s more, for example. Pokryshkina, but even without it, the phenomenon of German aces, with huge numbers more than ours, is quite explainable.

      Yes, at that time our side did not make photo reports, and as a result, that battlefield very quickly remained in the rear of the advancing German troops, so that they could very quickly restore the tanks knocked out there, yet they were not "Tigers" with "Panthers" , but quite maintainable, in the field "panzer". In addition, the Germans had a rather "burdensome" procedure for accounting for losses. In it, a damaged tank could "step by step" move from category to category and, as a result, be written off.
      One of the three German tank divisions operating in those places did, at the end of August, claim significant tank losses - this is the 6th Panzer. Are you sure that she did not lose them, in particular, in that battle?
      But not even that, for me the very fact of the great losses of German tanks already indicates that the Germans did not have an easy walk.

        I now know an example of mass destruction- Ilyinskoye, do you know how many photos of this episode? not even tens of pieces, no matter how hundreds.


        well, that is, you cannot confirm the destruction of 22, okay, no, no, but we are talking only about the "hit", with an unknown number of destroyed
        Life is not the world of Tanchiks - and a shell that hit the tank does not record it with the addition of game gold.

        In life, either the tanks were destroyed, as in Ilyinsky, or they continued to carry out the task, like Kolobanov’s.

      in modern science, any losses are confirmed by documents of the opposite side.

        In order to believe Kolobanov and his tankers, you must know who commanded the 1st shock? And the Germans who do not know who commanded the 6th German army, but believe in Hartmann’s victories, are considered shit? And the Americans, who don’t know where Stalingrad is, but believe in the American victory over fascism, are considered shit, or are they all honest and incorruptible people ?

    I, I learned about this battle in 1987, from the collection of essays "Tankers in the battle for Leningrad" Lenizdat 1987, the essay is called "THE WORLD LOOKS AT THE PLAIN" journalist N. Lisochkin. I was amazed and outraged. Well, why didn't they write about it before. Why weren't these names Kolobanov, Lavrinenko, Gorobets and a host of others in the school curriculum, and at the same time all sorts of Schwarzeneggers, Stalone and other soulless cinematic creatures are being raised to cult, and only those who have weak veins can doubt.

    The crew of the commander himself knocked out 22 tanks in 30 minutes of battle

    It would be nice to take an interest in the ammunition of the KV-1 tank. And also take into account the fact that armor-piercing 76-mm rounds at the beginning of the war were generally in short supply.
    And then after all, the Tirpitz torpedoing by a Soviet submarine in the report of the Sovinformburo was reported.

          You do not take into account one more fact. Judging by the proposed scheme and modern photo of the scene of the battle, we can conclude that the shooting was carried out on board the German tanks, and in this case it was possible to hit the OFS on them, with the installation on a high-explosive action.
          And not the fact that the number of cattle corresponded to the norm. Who knows how many they were brought to them then.

              Well shrapnel to strike is already a parable in the heights. Here a little different. I am sure that the side armor of the German panzers, at that time, did not hold our landmine 76,2 mm. Especially at such short combat distances.

        It always amused me, and no one wondered how much the EXCESS BK in the tank was. Where to put it there? Or hide? Piss into the crew pockets? There is not so much space there, and it’s also dark, and it’s quite possible to break something for yourself when you stumble on an unnecessary piece of iron. This is one of the reasons that the spent cartridges tried to throw out or put into empty nests from the tank at the first opportunity.

          In battle, ammunition and ammunition are not superfluous. Yes, it’s inconvenient when all the regular places are clogged and contingency ammunition gets in your way, but if a serious battle starts, there will soon be no contingency, and there are already less than half of the regular staff. When leaving the battle, Kolobanov had only 12 shells left.

          You can personally not believe me as much as you like, especially sofa dreamers may not believe me, but here is an example:
          Dm. Loza writes:
          American gunpowder was of very high purity and did not explode in a fire, as our shells did. This quality allowed the crews not to be afraid to take shells above the norm, loading them onto the floor of the fighting compartment so that it was possible to walk on them. In addition, they were laid on the armor, wrapped in pieces of tarpaulin, tightly tied with twine to the blinds and fenders

          But at the same time, we were afraid to be afraid, but they were more afraid of the lack of ammunition in battle. And the methods described as applicable on "Shermans" are suitable for any other tank:
          It was decided to replenish the ammunition and fuel and lubricants in the warehouse where Malko served. The tank safely reached the abandoned warehouse. The crew loaded more than 70 shells, 7000 rounds, and the tank advanced to Minsk.

          Now we will pass from front-line reality to statutory norms, authority for couch theorists:
          The ammunition of the gun was 69 unit rounds, placed in stacks on the sides of the hull (49 pieces), in a rack on the hanging shelf of the tower (8 pcs.) And in rotating drum sets under the seats of the commander and gunner (6 pcs.)

          Ammunition - 69 shells, i.e. even assuming that the tank had no shells initially, more than 70 were taken, i.e. obviously in excess of BC.

          More questions?

Knowing how to have to babysit shells, before loading them clean them of everything superfluous, so that, God forbid, the mud doesn’t get where it should not and doesn’t jam the bolt, but here SAFETY and for those shells ...
            And further, Sherman had a rotating guard to protect his legs, since a propeller shaft passed below him, and only then the floor of the fighting compartment. Where, how much and how to put shells here

        it wouldn’t be bad to know if 50 cm Czech armor was taken with 1-1.5 km bb with a 76 cannon shell, and it turns out that oh, it wasn’t taken, but it was already on 1 mm with everything from 30 km.

                  1. On the sides - ANYWHERE was not more than 16mm for LT35 and more than 15mm for LT38, they are PzKpfw35 (t) and PzKpfw38 (t), respectively.

                  2. The frontal armor of the 38s was strengthened during the war until the end of 1941, therefore, the final figures are supposedly about half of the reinforced Czechs by the summer of 1941, i.e. just the period under discussion, not applicable.

                  3. However, NONE of PzKpfw35 (t) had reinforced frontal armor, there were 25 / 15 / 25 everywhere - and basically there were 35 against Kolobanov.

                  4. Any more questions? lol

                    but at the same time, as we know, you don’t know exactly which kind of anti-Kolobanov’s was, although this has already been precisely decided, openly and proved.
                    you first find out this question, but then it turns out that there were no 35x at all tongue because there was 1 etc.))

          it wouldn’t be bad to know if 50 cm Czech armor was taken with 1-1.5 km bb with a 76 cannon shell, and it turns out that oh, it wasn’t taken, but it was already on 1 mm with everything from 30 km.


          Where is 1.5 km from? He "dagged" them from 150-300 m, well, the maximum "closed" the column for 1 km. Kolobanov chose an excellent position, although now there is a fair amount of shrubbery, but the intersection is clearly visible.

            interval on the march of the German tank column without counteraction from the air - 50 meters
            22 * 50 =?
            if they’re straight from his car,
            or they walked in pairs, otherwise the 22 of the tank on the segment in 500 of meters will not be placed
            while the last cars are received strictly in the forehead

            yeah, if you are still celebrating, but probably the couples stop you from knowing what kind of division there was?
            The question is already unambiguously resolved. look, darling

    These are real heroes, and not those who are given the title of a hero because they simply killed him at a military post.

    Kolobanov received the Order of the Red Banner for an excellent battle. German, or rather, Czech light tanks, in principle, could not cause serious harm to HF and rewarding

        A participant in this battle said that there were TIII tanks in the convoy. These are German tanks, not Czech.
