Flames of War Late War: Soviet LW Tank Shock Group

The robust T-34 suited the Red Army. It was simple to make, forgiving of poor maintenance, and easy to repair plus, there were many more rolling out of the factories to replace those that could not be repaired. The latest versions made it much easier for the commander to command while doing their other job as a gunner.

The T-70

The T-70 light tank used automobile engines and easily-manufactured components to create a tank that didn't need a heavy-machinery factory to build. Despite its small size and cheap price and 45mm, the gun is starting to be outclassed by the latest German tanks. Despite this, the heroes that have survived continue to prove that sometimes skill and a strong will can overcome any shortcomings of a tank.


While the KV-1s were the standard equipment for guard's breakthrough heavy tank regiments, some repaired earlier model KV-1 tanks arrived as replacements during the Stalingrad battles.


The KV-1s combined the benefits of heavy armor and a big gun with greater speed than any German tank. Depending on the opposition, they could either just plow through the enemy defenses, or maneuver to seek a weak spot.


The Red Army developed flame tanks before the war to assist their infantry to overrun and destroy enemy positions. The KV-8 was the latest and toughest in this long lineage. It mounted an ATO-41 flame-thrower in the turret in place of the machine gun, with a smaller 45mm gun replacing the 76mm gun to make room for it.

Katyusha Rocket Battery

The Red Army was a world leader in the field of rocketry. They used truck-mounted salvo rocket launchers against the Germans right from the start of the war. These saturated a large area with explosives, quickly pinning down the enemy and causing widespread casualties.


In January 1943 work began to mount the 85mm gun on the hull of the SU-122. The project was started in response to the appearance of Tiger 1E on the Russian front. After several prototypes were developed the version mounting the D-5S 85mm gun was adopted and pressed into production. In combat, the SU-85 proved very effectively able to take on the heaviest of German tanks from long ranges. The SU-85 first found service with SU-122 crews who had lost their vehicles in ferocious combat.
