Damaged KV-1 tank, August 1942, Stalingrad.


Take a look at this photo. The KV-1 tank was one of the most powerful tanks of the early 1940s. Its thick armor could only be penetrated by 88mm anti-aircraft guns. Shots from 37mm and 50mm guns did not leave even a trace on his armor. Usually, they tried to damage the track of these tanks, after which the sappers, under fire, crept up to the tank and put a powerful charge of explosives under it. The crews of the KV-1 tanks often performed great feats. For example, a lonely broken KV-1 in the summer of 1941 near the village of Raseiniai delayed the advance of several German divisions for several days. Soviet tank ace Zinovy Kolobanov in the summer of 1941, in a battle near Leningrad, destroyed 22 German tanks, several armored vehicles and vehicles in one battle.

For military successes, the tanker was awarded the Order of the Red Banner, on his personal account there were 27 destroyed enemy tanks.
