Tank Brigade personnel/eqpt summaries 1944-45

Post by Gary Kennedy » 06 Mar 2020 19:31

Did anyone ever find a decent summary on pamyat-naroda showing the authorised strength of the Tank Brigade under Shtat 010/500-506?

I found one, though I can't recall where it was from now, which I've attached here as a PDF.

I haven't forgotten the series Art found some years back now, viewtopic.php?f=79&t=218766&hilit=shtat+010%2F502

I wondered if there was anything else on the summary side, regarding personnel by rank, and weapons and vehicles by type.

I'm sorry I don't have anything to contribute, and I don't want to hijack your thread (well, too much :-)), but I'm wondering about specifics of vehicles in tank brigades. When an infantry organization shows 1.5t trucks, I'm assuming those are GAZ-AA or -MM. Is that correct?

Did any of these formations receive lend-lease halftracks? And how do they show up in organization tables?

Thanks,
Phil

In principle any truck with similar payload. So, for example, Ford-6 in lieu of GAZ-AA, or Studebaker in lieu of ZIS-5.

Toward the end of the war M3A1 scout car was a standard vehicle of reconnaissance units. Some anti-aircraft companies were equipped with M17 halftracks with quad machine guns. Halftracks as personnel carriers either LL or captured were rare and employed mostly as command vehicles.
