"All that is unnecessary - to be scrapped! Let's collect scrap metal!"


Soviet assault guns destroyed by Soviet artillery, StuG III Ausf A, district of Kiev, summer of 1941. (Apparently, he rushed BC - u_96)

Burned down German tank PzKpfw III in the USSR in June 1942.

The wounded German tank PzKpfw V modification D2, shot down during the operation "Citadel" (Kursk Bulge). This photo is interesting because there is a caption on it - “Ilyin” and the date “26 / 7”. This is probably the name of the gun commander who hit the tank.

Soviet fighters are considering a defeated German tank Pz.Kpfw. IV Ausf. G. The tank is painted in tricolor camouflage. Oryol-Kursk direction.
Shooting time: July 1943
(Again - detonation BC - u_96)

Soviet soldiers inspect a padded German tank Pz.Kpfw. V "Panther" Ausf D.
Judging by the modification of the machine most likely - the Kursk Arc 43. An interesting inscription on the front sheet: "TIG". There is an opinion that they wanted to write "TIGR" specifically to increase the pathos of the frame. But the photographer hurried and did not have time - u_96. ;)

Padded Panthers destroyed a tank T-70 A. Pegova. On March 26, 1944, the light T-70 tank, having noticed two approaching German PzKpfw V Panther tanks, disguised itself in the bush and took them to the sight. After the Panthers approached 150-200 meters and set them under attack, the T-70 suddenly opened fire from an ambush and destroyed the Panthers faster than they could detect it. The crews could not get out of the Panther. T-70 commander junior lieutenant A. Pegov was introduced to the title of Hero of the Soviet Union.

Destroyed column. Soviet soldiers inspect the broken German equipment.

    Thank you for photos.

    Why are photos with columns of captured Red Army soldiers or burning huts attributed to articles about the Second World War? It’s not patriotic.

    But such photographs show how the Iron Reich was spread across the walls.

    In short, You made my day.

    The inscription on the TIG tank confirms the evidence that the majority of the Red Army men and even the commanders recorded even Pz4 as tigers. There weren't many tigers in the war.
    Yes, and to grind 2 panthers with T-70, letting them in at a short distance, you need to have an iron will, respect for the peasants.
