Tank Corps shtat 010/418 and Tank Brigades

Post by Der Alte Fritz » 31 Mar 2019 10:14

Given the success we have had with Pamyat Naroda and other sources in establishing I thought that we should make a start in the better known Tank Corps. Even though the documentation is better on Tank Corps there are still gaps in the shtat numbers, personnel, weapons and vehicles and equipment for those shtats.

This thread should cover the Second Generation Tank Corps: 010/418
and the associated Tank Brigades:
010/345-352
010/240
010/270-277
010/500

and associated Tank Regiments:
010/292
010/414 (a least 3 variants)
010/463
010/464
010/465
010/507

Motor Rifle Brigades will remain over that the Mech Corps site as far as possible:
Mech Corps shtat 010/418 viewtopic.php?f=79&t=196789
Mechanised Brigade shtat 10/420-432 March 1943 viewtopic.php?f=79&t=196779
Mechanised Brigade shtat 10/370-380 September 1942 viewtopic.php?f=79&t=196669

It would help searching this thread is people could put the shtat number in the title of each post

010/270 Tank Brigade

Post by Der Alte Fritz » 21 Aug 2019 08:38

Development of Armoured and Mechanised Forces ABTV f38 op11373 d158
page 16:
1. Staff No. 010/280 - 010/287 - of the Tank Brigade was approved on July 14, 1942, numbering 922 people and 40 T-34 tanks - 24, T-60 tanks - 16 /.

2. The most advanced organization of the tank brigade in the state was No. 010/270 - 010/277, approved on July 31, 1942. The formation of brigades mainly occurred in this state.

DIAGRAM OF ORGANIZATION
TANK BRIGADE WITH 53 TANKS STATE No. 010/270 - 010/277
010-270 Tank Brigade.jpg
In September 1942, another state of the Tank Brigade No. 010/240 - 010/248 was developed, numbering 1,076 people and 49 tanks / "KV" - 5, "T-34" - 24, "T-70" - 20 / A small number of brigades were formed in this state, because in October, separate Guards brigades began to form. Tank regiments of the KV, Churchill Breakthrough /

The development and approval of new states did not mean the abolition of the old ones or the transfer of existing organisms to them. In the newly approved states, new formations were produced, previously formed organisms remained in the old states and were transferred during reorganization.

Therefore, by the end of 1942, tank brigades were kept in seven states / 010/317, 010/318, 010/345, 010/343, 010/240, 010/280 and 010/270 /.

The largest number of brigades was maintained by state No. 010/270; other brigades were gradually transferred to this main state, if possible.

In 1942, a new organizational tank unit appeared - a tank regiment.

In September 1942, staff No. 010/292, a tank regiment of a mechanized brigade, was developed.

At that time there were no mechanized brigades, and motorized rifle brigades were formed across the state 010/370 - 010/380, approved in March 1942, as rifle formations reinforced with artillery, anti-aircraft and anti-tank means and mortars transported by vehicles had high maneuverability. Motorized rifle brigades, as separate ones, acted in exceptional cases, and most often belonged organizationally to the tank corps.

The mechanized brigade consisted of a motorized rifle brigade and a tank regiment; its creation was caused by the organization of new mechanized corps, which began to form in September 1942.

In the first picture "010/270-010/270" should be substituted with "010/270-010/277". According to tankfront an AT rifle company (010/375) was added in January 1943, an anti-aircraft machine gun company (010/451) in March 1943.

There are material differences between the two schemes in their detail, some differences in totals as we have seen before.

I greeting the entire esteemed community! This post will be about separate Tank Brigade of Shtat No.010/345, 010/347-352, 010/391, 010/392 from May 29, 1942 (on November 25, 1942).
I want to post completed old find, I started working on it long time ago - but at certain stage, I decided that it was not relevant and abandoned it, and still original Shtat began to come across...
Organization Chart of sep. Tank Brigade Shtat №010-345 as of November 25, 1942.jpg
The original image is here: https://pamyat-naroda.ru/documents/view/?id=258808963 The notable in this document is that not shown the tanks of Bde cmd, which were in composition of HQ Co. According to data of this chart, the quantity of these tanks should be consist four - one T-34 and three T-60/T-70. The site tankfront.ru - our General assistant and friend, says in this section http://tankfront.ru/ussr/staff.html if you compare the data from table "Battalions", the same. I decided to accompany this Organization Chart by following document, if ti has already been translated and uploaded, then I apologize for the possible repetition:
Order of NKO SSSR No.00106 from May 29, 1942 - Orig..jpg
Translation, only because of one point "2":
Order of NKO SSSR No.00106 from May 29, 1942.jpg
The cited document is taken from the collection of orders of the People's Commissar of Defense of the USSR 22 June 1941-1942: "Русский архив: Великая Отечественная Т.13 (2—2). Приказы народного комиссара обороны СССР. 22 июня 1941г.-1942 г." - М.: ТЕРРА, 1997.
Digital edition in formats DJVU+OCR and DOC+ is here (freely available): http://militera.lib.ru/docs/da/nko_1941-1942/index.html And of course, this source is available here: http://tankfront.ru/ussr/doc/nko/pr42/00/00106.html
