Interesting maps of Ukraine, Russia and Bielorussia !


Recommended Posts

Useful. Google Earth is also useful, particularly to see things like the size of the fields and the elevations (scanning over the map you get a readout of the height).

Main thing this one shows is that the settlements occupy an appreciable portion of the total area. There was plenty of town like fighting at Kursk, which in the unit histories shows up as "and then regiment xxx spent the rest of the day fighting for yyy. It wasn't cleared until late00 hours".

JasonC,

An excellent example of the settlement argument is that defensive scheme for a division at Kursk in the Soviet AT thread. There are so many settlements there (think that's what they are) behind the MLR that they amount to a veritable wall all by themselves. Link's here.

Yes, GoogleEarth could be very useful too. I've recently noticed that they "upgraded" their database with high-resolution portions of Ukraine. Including area like Kiev, Zhitomir, Donetsk region and the Kharkov and Bielgorod zone.

Unfortunatelly, the high resolution terrain just stops a few kilometers south of Prokhorowka :mad:

Is there someone here who have a scanned version of the topographic map "M-37-38" (scale 1:100.000) of the sector of Prokhorovka ? Thanks.
