The idea to modernize the ISU-152 came up as early as the spring of 1944. This work led to the Object 704, a radically improved SPG. Due to delays, it was never accepted into service.

in 1944 the Challenger cruiser tank first saw battle in Normandy. The results of this debut were disappointing. British tankers preferred the Firefly, which delivered the same gun on a superior chassis.

Knocked out Pz.Kpfw.IV. Sadly, no date or location is given, although the presence of side skirts and Zimmerit coating at least allows us to narrow down the production date of this tank.

Artefacts of the war littered the landscape of Eastern Europe for many years after its end. This KV-1 tank was photographed in 1951. Sadly, it was most likely scrapped, as metal was needed more than museum exhibits.

A knocked out Pz.Kpfw.III with rarely seen spaced mantlet armour installed. Also note the spare tracks on the roof and a two road wheels on the fender. Two T-34s are driving through the destroyed village in the background. Vicinity of Stalingrad, 1942.

Infantry rides on a T-34 with a commander's cupola. The tank has interesting markings: a tactical symbol of what looks like a pine tree and a stripe on the turret roof (potentially in two colours).

Victory parade in Berlin, 1945. This was the first time IS-3 tanks were shown to the public. This appearance had a significant effect on tank building worldwide as nations raced to build "IS-3 killers".

A group of tankers at a field briefing. They are gathered around a rare T-34. It has extra 15 mm plating on both the hull and the turret, giving the latter a blocky appearance.

A T-34 tank with infantry riders, Baltic Front, 1944. Note the rivets in the front, driver's hatch with a single periscope, and machine gun ball with no mantlet, all features of very early T-34 tanks.

An IS-2 tank in Berlin, 1945. The tank is laden with lots of extra equipment, as was common at this stage of the war. A T-34 (likely a T-34-85, but hard to tell) is just off the edge of the shot.

in 1944 Stalin added an SU-85 regiment to each tank destroyer artillery brigade, supplementing their towed artillery with powerful 85 mm self propelled guns.

in 1943 a memo was circulated to warn the Red Army about Goliath vehicles, referred to as "torpedo tankettes". Several means of fighting them were described, with a warning to never run them over with a tank.

The Renault FT was a great tank because it could be built in great numbers. in 1917 an order was made for 2400 units, an impossible feat with any other tank available at the time.

SU-85 tank destroyers, East Prussia, 1945. These tank destroyers may have been overshadowed by the SU-100, but the 85 mm gun was still effective against the vast majority of German tanks even in 1945.
