Military personnel and equipment list Russian to English

Post by TuomoKoo » 20 Dec 2018 16:04

I would appreciate help in translating titles of sections of Soviet military personnel and equipment list, see attachment.
Pls. use numbers 1 - 22 as references for translation fro Russian to English. Many of titles are clear to me, but for example titles in sections 7, 10 and 18-22 need clarification.

Bit of a memory test for me;

1 Officers
2 Sergeants
3 Privates
4 Total
5 Total, horses
6 Rifles
7 SMGs and pistols
8 LMG (DP)
9 HMG (Maxim)
10 HMG AA (12.7-mm)
11 Mortar 120-mm
12 Mortar 82-mm
13 Mortar 50-mm
14 Howitzer 122-mm
15 Cannon 76-mm
16 Inf gun 76-mm
17 Atk gun 45-mm
18 Anti-tank rifle
19 Automobile
20 Tank

21 and 22 look to reference mortars and cannons respectively, possibly self-propelled equipment, fine for a cannon but for a mortar?

Thanks a lot Gary!
Wild guess: 21: Rocket launcher (Katyasha)? I know there was a 52 Guards Mortar Regiment involved.

Yes, I think I'd go with that for 21 as well. I'm sure I've missed some subtle differences but hopefully won't be too harshly marked down!

21 is a rocket launcher and 22 is AA gun.

Thanks Eugen, I don't think AA gun even entered my head for that one!
