The commander of 18th Tank Corps during Kursk was Major-General Boris Sergeivich Bakharov, although Colonel Aleksandr Vasilevich Egorov commanded the Corps for a short period in August 1943. Bakharov was KIA 16th July 1944.

Some how forgot the full name of Ivan Fedorovich Kiritshenko. At that the time he was a Major-General.
