John Kettler Posted September 6, 2012 Share Posted September 6, 2012 No idea what film this was taken from, but it neatly illustrates the value of attacking in bad weather and some other goodies. Shown are the excitement that ensues when Panzers come rolling up out of nowhere, the rush to service the piece, the fact that the AP projectile is not Arrowhead (Russian "T"), but APHE, the emphasis on speed ("Davai" means "Hurry") and the fire command "Ogon!", not to mention the flare pistol used to issue the tank attack alert. Unlike Russian practice following enormous antitank gun crew losses, one man on a loaded gun, with remainder of crew and ammo nearby, this gun has a full crew on it, probably because it looks better cinematically.
