Apparently the same tank, but now the location mentioned as Ihantala.
The tank number seems to be 430, but I can't identify the location for 100%

Might be the 430 during the hostilities.
Photo from "Suomi Tahtoi Elää, vol II", text mentioning the location as Tali.

Could it be Ihantala?
Missed ISU-152 from 394 Guards Heavy SPG Regt?
My estimations concerning the point of view are in the map attached.

Hi Slava M!

Yes its Ihantala, The ISU-152 on the photo you provided was knocked out by Corporal Uuno Repo of 1. Er Pst.Os. near the roadcross in Ihantala 1/7 1944 it had the tactical number 1140...

Thank you!
I was in doubt because it really situated like 1140 and the landscape fits rather well, but Ihantalanjärvi looks too narrow, not 800 m wide.
I thought it could be the vehicle of 394 Guards Heavy SPG Regt, which is mentioned as burned behind the enemy lines on 30.06.1944, crew MIA (tactical nimber is not mentioned). The landscape is still not very disturbed by artillery, buildings are not destroyed.

One of the most photographed Soviet armoured vehicles during the Wars (in addition to the T-34 #450 mentioned here earlier)
Here some other (staged) photos of it:

Repo seems to have destroyed 3 tanks that day. http://digi.narc.fi/digi/view.ka?kuid=4580884

Could you give me a source that says he was responsible for the destruction of the ISU-152 (1140)?

Thanks.

Still don't have a clear idea what tank was at what place.

A T-70(?) at the Soviet side of the bridge
