Just one more thing about the SU-76:

It had the colorful nickname "Suka" (Russian for b*tch). This was due to the thin armor, lack of overhead protection (rain, snow and arty fragments all came in), and (get this) the absence of a firewall or any other barrier between the driver and the engine. :eek:

That caught my eye, as well. Then I got to thinking... If I commanded a T-34/m41, I'd rather be loader. I'd rather have a gunner ready at that sight, while I scan for targets. Once I found one, I'd direct the gunnie to it and, with their attention properly focused, I'd duck down to grab the next round.

Chad,

Be sure to put in www.skalman.nu (may want to delve a bit for a more detailed segment link; huge site incorporating many goodies formerly at Thorleif Olsson's Red Steel) and www.jagdtiger.de (has beaucoup links to fabulous armor collections including Kubinka and pictures taken by the intrepid site owners).

Regards,

John Kettler
