Memo tankers to fight our tanks with enemy tanks, 1942 year



To fight the fascist tanks there are many means, but our tanks are still the best way to deal with them as highly mobile combat vehicles with powerful weapons and armor protection.

Our tanks have a number of advantages over German vehicles in armament and armor, and are a formidable force in the fight against enemy tanks. Fascist tankers are afraid of our heavy and medium tanks.

Soviet tankers! Destroy the Nazi tanks, destroy the gang of Hitler!

TANKMAN! REMEMBER ABOUT THE POWER OF THE WEAPONS OF YOUR TANK.

The artillery armament of our tanks, by its combat properties — accuracy, penetration and the destructive action of projectiles — can destroy or incapacitate any type of German tank.

76-mm tank guns pierce the armor of German tanks:
- armor-piercing projectile under any conditions at distances up to 1500 m;
- a fragmentation shell with a cap pierces the armor of German tanks with a thickness of 50 mm at distances to 1000 m.

45-mm tank guns pierce frontal armor of the main types of German tanks on the 200 — 300 m with an armor-piercing projectile, turret, aft and side armor — at distances to the 1000 m.

20-mm tank guns armor-piercing projectile pierce armor in vulnerable places at distances to 200 m.

The most vulnerable places of all German tanks are: weapon, side and stern armor, viewing slots, holes for sights and chassis (Fig. 1).



CREW TANK

Only a well-trained and put together crew can successfully solve the problem of the destruction of enemy tanks.

Quickly act at the weapon! The production of a well-aimed shot at a new target should not exceed 15 — 20 seconds.

Prevent enemy fire with your accurate fire, this will ensure the success of the battle.

Tankman! Use every free minute to improve your combat skills, crew coherence and interchangeability.

In carrying out the task assigned to the subunit, lead the observation of the battlefield and the tank of the platoon commander, find targets, destroy them with fire. Open fire on tanks yourself and strive to position your tank in such a way as to hit enemy tanks at their most vulnerable places - on the sides or stern.

Found the enemy's tanks - lead a fire at the tank nearest to you with armor-piercing shells, and if not, then fragmentation, mounted on the high-explosive action; at the same time long lines of tracer bullets from a machine gun, point the target to other tanks.



At distances to the target above 600, lead the fire from the spot, and when approaching the target, be sure to use covers and masks (small bushes, etc.) for firing from the stops (fig. 2). On flat ground under enemy fire, fire a cannon from a short stop only in b — 8 seconds. and from the course of machine guns.

When firing at tanks aim coolly, aiming do quickly and accurately. From a distance of up to 400, guide the most visible vertical surface of the tank. At a distance of more than 400, aim in the middle of the front or aft of the tank.

The distance of the most real fire on enemy tanks - 800 — 600 m and closer.

WATCH THE RESULTS OF THE FOOT AND CORRECT THE FIRE

When firing at tanks over a distance of more than 800 m, when receiving an undershoot (flight), correct the range fire by increasing the scope, increasing (decreasing) it by one division.



At a distance of 800 m in range, correct the fire by removing the aiming point (Fig. 3).

In the lateral direction in both cases, adjust the fire by removing the aiming point; when the projectile deviates to the side, move the aiming point in the opposite direction by the deviation of the fracture (Fig. 4).

Do not shoot at a clearly struck target, but transfer the fire to another target closest to you.

ONLINE

When attacking the front edge of the enemy, pull out the fire initiative from the fascist anti-tank guns: be the first to fire from the 600 — 400 distance and a fragmentation projectile at the places where the PTO weapons may be. This will reduce the accuracy of enemy fire.

When you find an important and dangerous target, focus the fire on several tanks on it (fig. 5).

When attacking anti-tank guns and enemy tanks, maneuver on the battlefield, occupy a flank position in relation to the target, use shelters and masks to fire from the stops.



Watch the flanks and the places where the enemy can cover the tanks and throw them from there to the counterattack.

Keep in touch with your infantry, it will provide you from direct attack on your tank by grenade throwers and bottle throwers; she will also tell you the most dangerous targets and help you destroy them.

When attacking settlements and individual buildings, open gunfire from a distance of 600 — 800 "m to buildings located on the outskirts, since the enemy usually masks his tanks there.

When fighting against an enemy inside a settlement, lead the fire primarily on the detected enemy tanks. When shooting from stops, use watches, fences, hedges as masks.

In the village, act swiftly, combing the streets and alleys with machine-gun fire, and on the baking sheets ”, huddled in houses, fire from the 100 — 150 m distance, on wooden buildings - with a fragmentation projectile with a cap, on a stone - an armor-piercing grenade, on the open firing points and infantry - from a machine gun.

Tankman! Shoot down a mass of cannon and machine-gun fire on the enemy. Sweep away the fire, push the caterpillars manpower and equipment of the enemy!

CREW TANK IN DEFENSE

When tanks are on the defensive, choose a firing position with good circular fire, so that there are no non-sweep spaces in front, not less than 400 m. The firing position should provide the ability to quickly launch a counterattack.

Carefully disguise the tank, and if you have time, do not spare the labor, bury it in the ground - this will protect your tank from defeat.

On the probable paths of movement of the enemy’s tanks, set obstacles from the groundfields and mines, accurately measure the distances to local landmarks in advance, write them down, and prepare baseline data for firing.

Carefully observe the battlefield. The crew of the tank, who had previously detected the enemy, has advantages in his destruction. Open the fire only at the command (signal) of the platoon commander and lead him with the highest rate of fire. Always be ready to go to the counter for the final destruction of the enemy.

Prepare new spare positions and covert access to them.

ACTIONS FROM BACK

For an ambush, choose a line that would make it difficult for the enemy to maneuver with the main fire weapons.

Preparing a tank ambush should be as secretive as possible - carefully mask your tank.

All approaches suitable for the movement of the enemy must be known to all crews in ambush, reference points are studied and the distances to them are determined.

Let the enemy on 100 — 200 m, to beat him for sure. Open the fire only at the command (signal) of the ambush commander and know exactly your role in repelling the enemy when he appears from different directions and in various battle formations.

The suddenness of the first fire attack and decisiveness in the actions will ensure the success of the battle in ambush.

Lead a aimed fire at the tank with the maximum rate of fire closest to you. Transfer the fire to other targets only after you destroy the first target.

Lead the observation of the results of your fire and adjust the fire by removing the aiming point.

When changing firing positions in ambush tanks change them in turn, supporting each other with fire.

When leaving the battlefield under enemy fire, withdraw the tank in reverse until the first shelter; Only there, deploy your tank, otherwise when turning you will substitute the most vulnerable places under enemy fire.

The crew, in any case, do not leave your tank, lead the fight from it to the last projectile (patron, grenades). Know that our tanks or infantry will come to your aid.

    Such memos have certainly helped our tankers in the fight against German tanks more than once. Simple, affordable, not overloaded with redundant information. It is a pity that a little late, a year after the start of the war ...

        And the fleet of German technology has not really changed since the 41 year.

        Really?
        you look at the differences between the four Ausf.F1. and Ausf.F2, for example
        or PzKpfw III Ausf.H from Ausf.J, Ausf.L and K
        and with the armor-piercing troubles we still have the same ones and by 42 they have not disappeared.
        about the fact that in the fall "Tiger" appeared, I will not say anything

          What has appeared? 4 Tanks, one of which was hit from a howitzer and was not even noticed. Even in Kursk there were no more than 150 cars.

    Road spoon for dinner! How many lives would be saved if our tankers had such a memo in June 1941. It was not a secret, after all, that a war was not far off and who would have to be fought with!

      In the 41st, the tankers were still pre-war trained and trained better than from the memos. Write such nonsense that it is a shame to read.

      So again, the concept of battle was not ..
      The attack of bare tanks without infantry at halhingol was also used against the charter.
      And again - ours were no worse than the Americans were sure that tanks did not fight against tanks.
      But I had to ..

    Yes, in 1941, many crews were killed! It is capacious and accessible compiled, as the crews were trained in a short time and in battle!

    On this topic, there are a number of small instructions on Hitler’s tactics and methods for overcoming them, written by General Lyuzikov, very interesting and instructive. You can find it on the website of the Armor site for this address:
    http://armor.kiev.ua/shop/cd1.php

    Also, to make sure that our headquarters did not sleep from the first minutes of the war, the most extensive archive of reports, instructions and conclusions issued by all levels of field and military headquarters has been collected on the site www.bdsa.ru (Combat operations of the Red Army).

    But the defense at the beginning of the Battle of Kursk might not have brought such successful results, if our military intelligence had not worked, and Comrade Zhukov would not have been dealt a preemptive strike in 10 minutes after entering Hitler’s motorized columns.

      On this topic, there are a number of small instructions on Hitler’s tactics and methods for overcoming them, written by General Lyuzikov, very interesting and instructive

      I will allow myself to quote a real masterpiece of military literature of that era: "Submachine gunners are selected fascist thugs who have experience in many battles, who have undergone special training to better use their weapons, people bought by the Nazis with Hitler's awards and coupons for the right to receive 100 hectares of land after the war. the territory seized from us ". / 29- С.5 / Having informed about the moral character of the owners of state-owned machine guns, the author of the brochure tries to outline the tactical aspects of their conduct of hostilities: "So, in a meeting engagement, that is, when units enter into battle with each other from the march ( from the campaign), submachine gunners in whole parties (platoons, companies) are thrown forward to meet our troops and, using all the power of their fire, they seek to deploy all our forces against themselves, so that the main forces of the German columns, covered with the fire of submachine gunners supported by artillery, can bypass the flanks of our troops and even go to the rear. " / 29- С.6 / Thus, it is assumed that German soldiers and non-commissioned officers armed with submachine guns act in large masses, up to and including a company.
      In general, it must be said that A.I. Lizyukov since the 1930s. was a tanker and the value of the information he provided on the tactics of the infantry units of the Germans seems questionable. Rather, his name was simply used in a brochure written by people with a very rich imagination, since later on it contains real masterpieces both in the brightness of the artistic image and in the idiocy of the written: "Hunting for submachine gunners" is carried out in the same way as hunting for a black grouse or wood grouse. There are such birds - black grouse and wood grouse, which differ from all other birds in that in the spring, and sometimes in the fall, they sing (sing). Hunters know that black grouse and capercaillie are very cautious birds and under normal conditions they will not let the hunter close to them. ”/ 29- P.8 / Next is a heartbreaking description of the hunt for the“ current ”with bursts of submachine gun

        Mercenaries have always played a leading role in unleashing all the warriors of the last century, by the way, the richest org are mercenaries headquartered in London, who scammed half the world, and of course they milk. It is not surprising that such descendants of Grozny (are there any parallels with the war in Chechnya?) Of the Greek god Zeus, and during the attack of Hitlerite Germany on the USSR, took part in the battles. Here you can clearly see the scene of the Mexican fighting the elite tsetse in "Rescue of the Rain Man".

        Well, since my family is from Lithuania, and you can see with Vladimir the red sun also went to Tsar grad (not to be confused with labuses), I do not agree half the world, so Lyuzikov is, first of all, a talented commander for me , and a skilled strategist.

    correctly told. The problem was that the crews and tankers hastily prepared. such memos were textbooks. read memorized and applied in the 1st battle. I could do everything as it is written, which means that I’m still alive and you are already an experienced warrior. no, then you’re buried.
