Has anyone read anything from these people and care to comment on the quality of material?

Re: Soviet Anti Tank Weapons

There is some evidence that in 1941 the Soviets also manufactured a crude mortar type weapon called an 'ampulomet' I think the evidence is overwhelming. Anyway some pics http://i208.photobucket.com/albums/bb212/Bob_Mackenzie/ampulomet/Ampulomet2.jpg http://i208.photobucket.com/albums/bb212/Bob_Mack...

Sturmpanzer Abt 216 at Ponyri July 43

Gents I am aware that 216 was part of Panzerjager Regt 656 for Zitadelle however its parent unit was spit-up to support the various attacking infantry units, for example Panzerjager Abt 653 was attached/supporting 86ID. This makes me suppose that 216 was allocated in a similar way. Does anyone have ...
