data for: Tiger tank
in June 1944, forced by the powerful offensive of the Soviet, German 502nd Heavy Tank Battalion 2 back to Latvia southern Tina Berg (now Daugavpils) nearby tissue defense. Carlos agent at this time the company commander, the whole company is only 5 “Tiger I tank.
1944, the Soviets launch a summer offensive, the front of the south wing of the German Central Army Group was torn a large hole. Soviet is to build a powerful armored units, continuous input to the weak zone of the German defense, the Germans attempted to split into northern and southern parts, and to seize the excellent Baltic port of Riga. Tina Berg near Riga, and also the Road traffic arteries of the Daugava River basin, and thus the two armies contested.
in 1944, 22, has a strong heavy tanks of the Soviet troops defeated the northern German 270 Infantry Division arrived in Tina Boge Dong. Defensive urban areas, led by Carlos lieutenant against the 502nd Heavy Tank Battalion No. 2 to move into urban northern outskirts of Mali Nava Village.
determination surprise to open the way
when Carlos rate of 5 “Tiger I tanks rushed to the hilly areas of the west side of the village of Mali Nava, 502 heavy infantry tanks The camp even three “Tiger I tank 1 is also led by Bao Erte’s came to assist in the fight, so they have eight tanks. At this point, the remnants of the 270 Infantry Division are in panic retreat, a large number of semi-tracked vehicles, trucks and motorcycles crowded the road in the West Village, confusion.
understand the situation, Carlos and old partner Ke Sheer warrant officer driving a VW82-type jeep went ahead reconnaissance. Encountered on the way an officer of the 270 Division assault artillery units, according to him: Soviet about 90 ~ 100 tanks to kill both directions from the east, south, Mali Nava Village but it was unclear whether the occupied. They should have to retreat south to meet with divisional headquarters, but now I am afraid that make life difficult.
data for: ls-2 heavy tank
reconnaissance, Carlos found: the vanguard of Soviet tanks has come to the village, and taking a break, while the main force has not yet arrived. A few Soviet tanks tightly side by side, the crew or chat or smoke, or to the barn to find food in the car map, there are some tanks soldiers surreptitiously potential. Carlos did not know this vanguard of the Soviet elite Guards Heavy Tank Regiment. The regiment equipped with the latest tanks of the Soviet Army, just returned from Moscow tune ready for Tina Berg area of ??intense fighting.
Carlos and Ke Sheer immediately back to the company headquarters to the players to explain the general situation of the village the enemy tanks. After a short deliberation, Carlos decided in this vanguard of the enemy main force units before the arrival of the first defeat to stop its offensive and open up the the Mali Nava south of the village road, the remnants of the 270 Division and its division headquarters to join.
specific arrangements: with Carlos and Ke Sheer 2 “Tiger I tank the village raid to seize road junctions leading to the south; 6″ Tiger I tanks in hilly areas standby ready to fire support, and to contain the large forces of the Soviet offensive from the eastern side of the road; two shares of forces must maintain radio contact.
Carlos deployment is justified, because at present the village is not fully understood, all the tanks to the village, there may occur a chaotic street fighting and loss of monitoring and control of the eastern side of the road – here may The Soviet offensive direction. In addition, only a narrow muddy path leading to the village on both sides is similar to a swamp grass Tong, “Tiger Ⅰ” spend too much bulky tanks will influence each other, reducing attack effect.
the event of a car blockage on the road or shot in the anchor, are likely to block the channel of the whole company, resulting in the complete loss of combat effectiveness, the worst case will be annihilated . Therefore, in order to avoid unnecessary losses, Carlos decided to only 2 “Tiger I” to disrupt the Soviet Zhenshi fast, surprise.
first encountered the JS-2 heavy tank
arrangement is completed, the two “Tiger I” rushed at full speed to the village. Carlos take 217 tanks to lead the charge, Ke Sheer 213 tanks in the rear cover follow-up distance of 150 meters. Soviet tanks in the village is still no sign of activities, the Soviets apparently did not expect to just rout the Germans would fire holding stick counterattack came.
until Carlos faster Dao Cunkou, two Soviet T34/85 tanks serving as a guard only noticed the noise of the “Tiger I hastily turned the turret to aim, to 217, but did not expect the oriole – Ke Sheer 213 tanks for two guns, they play the “paralysis” on the roadside. These two shelling sounded the horn Mali Nava Assault war “.
village after Carlos reduce the speed, carefully search for the Soviet tanks. Ke Sheer quickly move closer to the past, cover the left side of Carlos. 217 tanks had just climbed up a gentle slope, a long barrel, with a streamlined turret heavy tank suddenly rushed out from it right in front. Carlos suddenly cold sweat, this monster and the German “Tiger”-style (“Tiger II”) tanks the same stature – it is just put into the Eastern Front near the Soviet JS-2 heavy tank. Flash, 217 tanks, five people immediately like a clockwork machine-like up and running quickly aim, fire. Even JS-2, also arrived in power, but 88 mm gun.
Carlos recalled in his postwar memoirs mud tiger “:” the most terrible, it has a 122 mm caliber cannon, it is rare the muzzle of Soviet tanks … but when the fight after, we found that this tank has a fatal flaw – the reaction is very clumsy, so despite its armor thickness, large caliber artillery, but not suitable for ‘tiger’ type in the deal close.
However, we also know, has now been discovered by the enemy, the Soviet tanks may be quietly waiting for prey at your fingertips. advance, we all fall into the extreme tension into the raid is too risky, but it has no escape route, and each person’s sweat Maodou Li up. “
closely with the slaughter
is badly shaken when the distant road ahead shrub cover appeared green tank figure but may be the Soviet Army did not find them, but hurry to go through to the west of the small village. Carlos suddenly: the Soviet tanks must build-up to the east side of the village, just wrecked JS-2 and in front of a few are around to the village west, to the side forces surrounded.
he immediately radioed Bao Erte, their firepower to contain live west roundabout Soviet tanks, summon Ke Sheer to move closer to him, side by side forward, the muzzle pointing to 10 o’clock – - This is the most dangerous direction!
Right on cue, when they crossed a row of houses, the horizons are suddenly open, 8 JS-2 are heating up in front of the open space car, 7 has been started (it seems Soviet to the two wings of encirclement) moved into the Village. Did not wait for Carlos ordered the 88 mm main gun on the 217 and 213 tanks almost simultaneously opened fire.
Soviet tank turret began to turn, some of them tried to open farmland into the woods to seek cover. The bloody fight began. Soviet tanks fired shells dolphin in the side of the explosion of two “Tiger I and splashes a few meters of soil. Carlos completely disregard these, his tank engine crazy to Paoxiao with, hunted with the enemy. Fireball one group received a mass ejected from the muzzle of the tank, he was almost shot what what. Just a few minutes, 13 JS-2 upside down to “lie” in the streets, only two Xianshibumiao eastward escape ……
2 vehicles “Tiger I” barrel has been overheating in the rapid firing, slightly blackened turret filled with paste smell of rubber burning – this is the turret in the fast rotation of the hydraulic system seals the heat caused. Carlos 217 tank road wheel was broken three, but it was not affected driving. The Ke Sheer tank was intact, and he drilled the control tower to reluctantly vote to Carlos and treacherous smile, the face was very pale – and of fierce fighting, just enough to make any veterans tremble with fear.
adjust the deployment of ruthless
Carlos did not forget the east side of the enemy is not resolved, he immediately called over the radio Bao Erte and learned that they are T-34/85 and three JS-2 and 2 long-range shot. So he ordered Ke Sheer to the south of the village guard himself quickly around to the Village, from behind the attack on Soviet tanks.
20 minutes after in Carlos and Baoer Te, 6 tanks before and after the attack, the rest of the Soviet tanks were all destroyed. At this point, the Germans full control of the village of Mali Nava, destroyed the Soviet 17 JS-2 heavy tank and four T-34/85. Among them, Carlos, and Ke Sheer total wreck 17 Carlos arranged for 10.
after Carlos command “Tiger Ⅰ” concentrated in the north of the village junction, lined up in the east guard 270 division of the surplus vehicles and assault guns quickly through the village over southward retreat. Soon the distant Orient dust **, mighty Soviet forces of tanks, trucks, ammunition, vehicles and mechanized infantry opened over. Eight 88 mm tank gun to adjust the angle, together fire, far from the road immediately turned into a sea of ??fire.
