AFV Data for Ponyri (Kursk) 1943

Post by perrya » 13 Feb 2022 05:32

Hi,
Looking for AFV data (types and numbers) for the Germans and Russians. For the Russian, the 2nd Tank Army, 13th Army, 70th Army. I have read there were 1000 dug in AFVs at Ponyri. For the Germans, the18th Pz, 10 PG, 9th and 20Pz.

Any data is appreciated.
Perry

Numbers from Zetterling and Frankson.

Soviet numbers were posted in the Paleozoic period of this forum, honestly speaking I can't find where exactly.
